Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies which allow us to analyse how you use our website (see note regarding cookies above). The information the cookie generates about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This information corresponds to the data named above under II.1. Furthermore, Google processes the search term you used to find our website through a search engine. We use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymisation. This means that Google will normally truncate your IP address in advance within EU Member States or other Contracting Parties to the EEA Agreement. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

The data will be processed for market research and to help us design our website to meet our users’ needs. Google processes this data on our behalf, to evaluate the use of our website and to compile reports about the activities on our website.

The legal basis is Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in using the statistics provided by Google to perform internal market research and adjust our website to meet its visitors’ needs.

Cookies placed by Google Analytics will be deleted after 24 months at the latest and the data generated through Google Analytics will be stored for 14 months. Provision of this data is not required and not necessary to conclude a contract with us. You can prevent the cookies from being stored by adjusting your browser settings accordingly (see above).
