  • This website uses Google Analytics, a website analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are stored on your computer and which make it possible for us to analyze your use of the website. In general, the information generated by the cookie regarding your use of the website is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on the website, however, Google will truncate your IP address within an EU member state or within another contracting state to The Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmitting it to Google in the USA. The complete IP address will only be transmitted to Google's servers in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website in order to analyze your use of the website, compile reports regarding website activities and perform other services for the website operator associated with use of the website and use of the internet. 
  • Google will not combine the IP address transmitted by your browser in conjunction with Google Analytics with other data.

If you have activated personalized ads and linked your devices to your Google account, then conditional on your consent to the use of Google Analytics in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, Google can analyze your usage behavior across multiple devices and create database models, including for cross-device conversions. We do not receive personal data from Google, but rather only statistics. If you would like to stop cross-device analytics, you can deactivate the “personalized advertisement” function in the settings of your Google account. You can find instructions to do so on this website: Further information on Google Signals is available at the following link:
