This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, “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 (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States, a country that does not offer an equivalent level of protection of privacy to that applicable in the European Union. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, only abbreviated IP addresses will be further processed, so that a direct connection to the individual user is eliminated. Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA.
You can refuse the use of Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set on the computer, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website.

Please note that on this website IP anonymization is activated, i.e. the Google Analytics code is supplemented by “anonymizeIp” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking).
We concluded a data processing agreement with Google. When using Google Analytics, we implement the strict provisions of the German data protection authorities. Google, Inc. obliged itself to process all personal data received from the EU in accordance with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework (Art. 45 para. 3 GDPR).
