Upon visiting a website, the website may place a cookie on the computer of the website visitor. Should the user visit that same website at a later point in time, the website can read the data on the previously stored cookie and thus determine, for example, if the user has indeed visited the website before and what areas of the website were of particular interest to said user. For more information about cookies, we suggest visiting WIKIPEDIA.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, 4 Barrow St, D04 E5W5 Dublin, Ireland (“Google”) on the basis of your consent (analysis of website use). We have entered into a data processing contract with Google for them to do so. When you access our website, the software automatically establishes a connection to the servers of Google and data is transmitted to those Google servers, some of which are located in the USA. Google Analytics also uses cookies in order to store information about website users and to analyze use of the website. Our website uses the function “IP anonymization”. By doing so, if you are located within a member state of the European Union or in a signatory state of the European Economic Area, your IP address will first be truncated and thus anonymized by Google. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address first be transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is then truncated. According to Google, Google will use the data collected in order to analyze website use, compile reports about website activities and provide us with additional services related to website use and Internet use in general. Furthermore, Google may under certain circumstances transmit this information to third parties, insofar as this is legally permissible or if the third party is contracted to process data on behalf of Google. Detailed information about how user data is handled by Google Analytics may be found in the privacy policies of Google and Google Analytics.
Any transmission of data to the USA is subject to the adequacy clause as laid out by the European Commission in Art. 45 par. 1 of the GDPR. Within the scope of this, companies who have earned “Privacy Shield” certification are deemed to guarantee an adequate level of data privacy. Google is certified under the “Privacy Shield”.
