5) Web Analytics Services

Google (Universal) Analytics

Google Universal Analytics with demographic characteristics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“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 abbreviated IP address) will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States, where it may also be transmitted to servers of Google LLC.
This website uses Google Analytics exclusively with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”, which ensures an anonymization of the IP address by shortening and excludes a direct personal reference. As a result of this extension, Google will previously shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted and truncated to a Google LLC.server in the United States. In these exceptional cases, this processing takes place in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes.
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.
You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link:
https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
As an alternative to the browser plug-in or within browsers on mobile devices, please click the following link to set an opt-out cookie that will prevent Google Analytics from collecting cookies from this site in the future (this opt-out cookie only works in this browser and only for this domain, delete your cookies in this browser, you must click this link again): Disable Google Analytics Tracking
In the event that personal data is transferred to Google LLC. based in the USA, Google LLC. has certified itself for the us European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. A current certificate can be viewed here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list
This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. The first time a page is accessed, the user is assigned a unique, permanent and anonymous ID, which is set across all devices. This makes it possible to assign interaction data from different devices and from different sessions to a single user. The User ID does not contain any personal data and does not transmit such data to Google.
The collection and storage of data via the User ID can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. To do this, you must deactivate Google Analytics on all systems that you use, for example in another browser or on your mobile device.
This website also uses Google Analytics’ “demographic features” feature. This allows reports to be generated that contain statements about demographic data such as age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This information comes from interest-based advertising by Google, the Google Display Network, and third-party visitor information. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google Account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown immediately.
You can deactivate this using a Google browser plug-in (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en). As an alternative to the browser plug-in or within browsers on mobile devices, please click on the following link to select an opt-out cookie: Disable Google Analytics Tracking

6) Tools and Miscellaneous

6.1 Google Maps

On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). Google Maps is a web service that displays interactive (land) maps to visually represent geographic information. Using this service will show you our location and make it easier for you to get there.

Already when you call up the subpages in which the Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (e.g. your IP address) is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers of Google, which may also transmit it to servers of Google LLC. in the USA. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to, or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want your profile to be associated with Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. The collection, storage and evaluation are carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit.f DSGVO on the basis of Google’s legitimate interests in the display of personalised advertising, market research and/or the demand-oriented design of Google websites. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles and must contact Google to exercise this right.

In the event that personal data is transferred to Google LLC. based in the USA, Google LLC. has certified itself for the us European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. A current certificate can be viewed here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list

If you do not agree with the future transmission of your data to Google within the scope of the use of Google Maps, there is also the possibility to completely deactivate the web service of Google Maps by switching off the application JavaScript in your browser. Google Maps and thus also the map display on this website can then not be used.

You can view Google’s terms of use at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html, and the additional terms of use for Google Maps at https://www.google.com/intl/de_US/help/terms_maps.html.

6.2 Google Web Fonts

This site uses web fonts provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”) for the purpose of displaying fonts in a consistent manner. When you access a page, your browser loads the web fonts you need into its browser cache to display text and fonts correctly.

To do this, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers, which may also transfer personal information to Google LLC.’s servers in the United States. This will enable Google to know that your IP address has been used to access our website. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.

In the event that personal data is transmitted to Google LLC. based in the USA, Google LLC. has certified itself for the us European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. A current certificate can be viewed here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list
