6. User analyses for statistical purposes – Google Analytics

In order to optimise our website, remove sources of error and identify how visitors use our website and what areas are used at what times, we use Google Analytics, a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA. Google uses cookies to enable it to analyse your use of the website. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 (1) f) of the DSGVO.

The services offered by Google Analytics are enhanced using the code “anonymizeIp” – a function for the anonymisation of IP addresses. IP addresses are thus shortened so that they cannot be connected to you. This anonymisation process means that your IP address will be shortened before it is transferred within the member states of the European Union or in other states that are contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases, it is possible that the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA.

The information about your use of our Website (including your anonymised IP address) that is collected by the cookies saved on your system by Google Analytics is also transferred to and stored on a Google server in the USA. Google is certified for the EU-US Privacy Shield. https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework

Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of the website for us, to create reports on the activity on the website and to provide additional services for us connected with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transferred by your browser during the use of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

You can prevent and object to the saving of cookies by changing the browser settings described in Section 2, with corresponding limitations on the use of the website.

You can prevent the collection of the information generated by the cookie that is related to the use of the website (including your IP address) by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin that can be found under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
