Use of Google Analytics
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). 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 the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. We have also added the code “anonymizeIP” to Google Analytics on this website, which guarantees the masking of your IP address so that all data is collected anonymously. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
By downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en you can prevent Google from collecting cookie-generated data related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as stop Google from processing this data. As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from capturing your data by clicking this link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent your data from being collected in the future when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website, and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
Using script libraries (Google Web Fonts)
We use script and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) to display the content of our website correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
When the script or font libraries are called up, a connection to the library operator is automatically established. It is theoretically possible, but currently unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes, that the operator of the corresponding libraries also collects data.
Use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps from Google Inc. By using our website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of automated data by Google Inc., its agents, and third parties.
To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We have no influence on this data transmission.
