Website Analysis

For purposes of analyzing and optimizing our websites, we use various services, which are presented below. This analysis allows us to understand, for example, how many people visit our site, what information is most in demand, and how people find it. Among other things, we collect data on which website an affected person came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for which length of stay a subpage was viewed. This helps us to design and improve our offers in a user-friendly way. The data collected is not intended to personally identify individual users. Anonymous or at most pseudonymous data are collected. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 f of the GDPR.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Usage includes the Universal Analytics operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID, thus analyzing the activities of a user across devices.

Google Analytics uses cookies that allow you to analyze the use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event of activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. In these purposes, our legitimate interest lies in the data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 Abs. 3 TMG or Art. 6 Abs. 1 f DSGVO. The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (eg user ID) or advertising IDs will be automatically deleted after 50 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached is done automatically once a month.
