Use of Google Analytics

(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are placed on your computer that allow us to analyse your use of the website. The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, your IP address is abbreviated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or other states which are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area. The complete IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse your use of the website in order to compile reports about website activities and to provide other services connected with the use of the website and internet usage to the website operator.

(2) The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

(3) You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the settings in your browser software accordingly; however, we would point out that if you do so you may not be able to use all the functions of this website completely.

(4) You can also prevent the acquisition of the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link:https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

(6) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This further processes IP addresses in abbreviated form so that no direct reference to you personally is possible.

(7) We use Google Analytics so that we can analyse the use of our website and improve it regularly. We can improve our offer using the statistics we have obtained and make it more interesting for you as the user. For those exceptional cases when personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has signed up to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Embedding of YouTube videos

(1) We have embedded YouTube videos on our online offer; these are stored on http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all embedded in “enhanced data protection mode”, i.e. no data about you as the user is transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. The data referred to in paragraph 2 is only transferred when you play the videos. We have no influence on this data transfer.

(2) When you visit the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the relevant subpage of our website. This happens irrespective of whether YouTube provides a user account which you have used to log in, or whether a user account exists. If you are logged into Google, your data is allocated directly to your account. If you do not wish the data to be allocated to your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as a usage profile and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or adapting its website as required. This analysis takes place in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide customised advertising and inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of this user profile and you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

(3) You can find further information about the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by YouTube in their Privacy Statement. You will also find additional information there about your rights and optional settings to protect your privacy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has signed up to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
