Use of Google Analytics

On our website we use the web analysis service Google Analytics of Google LLC. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google").
Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is the data controller responsible for your data if you have your habitual residence in the European Economic Area or Switzerland. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the company affiliated with Google which is responsible for the processing of your data and compliance with applicable data protection laws.

Google will use the information obtained on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.
Google Analytics uses cookies to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP anonymisation is activated on this website. As a result, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
Google has certified itself according to the US-EU data protection agreement "Privacy Shield" and is thus committed to complying with the European data protection guidelines.

When you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is placed on your computer. These cookies have a limited validity, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that you clicked on the ad and were directed to that page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Thus, there is no way that cookies can be tracked through ads customer websites.
The information collected with the help of the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics. We learn the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and were directed to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies users.
Your data may be transferred to the USA. Google has certified itself in accordance with the US-EU data protection agreement "Privacy Shield" and is therefore obliged to comply with the European data protection guidelines.
You can disable personalized advertising for you in the Google advertising preferences. You can find instructions on how to do this at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de.
Alternatively, you can prevent the use of cookies by third parties by going to the Network Advertising Initiative's opt-out page at https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and implementing the opt-out information provided there.
You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
