Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc, (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Use of the service includes the Universal Analytics mode. Sessions, interactions and data can be assigned to a pseudonymous user ID across multiple devices and thus the activities of a user can be analyzed across devices. It also produces Google Analytics reports on demographic characteristics that use data from Google's interest-based advertising and visitor data from third parties (e.g. age, gender and interests). This data cannot be traced back to a specific person and can be deactivated at any time via the display settings.

Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not 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 the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. This is also where our legitimate interest in data processing lies. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics can be found in § 15 Para. 3 TMG and Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Sessions and campaigns are terminated after a certain period of time. By default, sessions are closed after 30 minutes without activity and campaigns after six months. The time limit for campaigns may not exceed two years.

Data sent by us and linked to user IDs, advertising IDs or cookies are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.
