The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your shortened IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
9.2. This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp()", which ensures anonymisation of the IP address by shortening it and excludes direct personal reference. The extension means that your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google LLC. server in the United States and shortened there.
9.3. Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. In this context, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google (Universal) Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
9.4. Google Analytics also enables the creation of statistics with statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors on the basis of an evaluation of interest-based advertising and with the inclusion of third-party information via a special function, the so-called "Demographics and Interests". This allows the definition and differentiation of user groups of the website for the purpose of targeting marketing measures. However, data records collected via "Demographics and Interests" cannot be assigned to a specific person.
9.5. All of the processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics cookies for the reading of information on the terminal device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6(1) point (a) GDPR. Without this consent, Google Analytics will not be used during your visit to the website.
9.6. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website. We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics, which obliges Google to protect the data of our site visitors and not to pass it on to third parties. For the transfer of data from the EU to the United States, Google refers to the so-called Standard Contractual Clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European level of data protection in the US.
9.7. Further information on Google (Universal) Analytics can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB
9.8. This website also uses the Google Signals service as an extension of Google Analytics. With Google Signals, we can have Google create cross-device reports (so-called "Cross-Device Tracking"). If you have activated "personalized ads” in your Google account settings and have linked your internet-enabled devices to your Google account, Google can analyse user behaviour across devices and create database models based on this, provided you have given your consent to the use of Google Analytics in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point (a) GDPR (see above). The logins and device types of all page visitors who were logged into a Google account and performed a conversion are taken into account. The data shows, among other things, on which device you first clicked on an ad and on which device the associated conversion took place. We do not receive any personal data from Google in this regard, but only statistics compiled on the basis of Google Signals. You have the option of deactivating the "personalized ads” function in the settings of your Google account and thus switching off the cross-device analysis. To do this, follow the instructions on this page:
