Google Analytics with anonymisation function

Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics from the company Google Inc., headquartered at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA ("Google"). To do this, cookies are used that enable an analysis of the use of the website.

The information generated through these cookies, e.g. time, location and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, is sent to Google in the USA and stored there. You can prevent the installation of cookies through appropriate settings of your browser software. However we expressly state that, in this case, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

On our website, we use Google Analytics with an IP anonymisation function. In this case, your IP address is already shortened and made anonymous by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. This only allows for a rough localization.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports about the website activities for us, and to provide other services relating to use of the website and Internet use. Google may also pass this information on to third parties, provided that this is prescribed by law or if third parties are processing this data by order of Google.

Moreover, Google offers a deactivation option for the most popular browsers that gives you more control over what data is collected and processed by Google. If you activate this option, no information relating to your visit to this website will be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, activation does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or other web analysis services that we may use. Additional information concerning the deactivation option provided by Google and the activation of this option is provided via the following link:

If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can identify that you as a user have clicked on one of our ads placed with Google and that you have been redirected to a website.

Google uses the information obtained via the "conversion cookies" to prepare visit statistics for our website. Using the statistics, we learn the total number of users that have clicked on our ad, and, in addition, which pages of our website have subsequently been accessed by the respective user. However, we or other companies that advertise via "Google AdWords" do not obtain any information whatsoever with which users can be personally identified.
