Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e., interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offering within the meaning of point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR) we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookies about the user’s use of the online offering is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. 

We use the “_gat._anonymizeIp” add-on for web analysis with Google Analytics. Use of this add-on means that the IP address of the data subject’s Internet connection is shortened and anonymized by Google if our website is accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. One of the purposes for which Google uses the data and information obtained is to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide further services in connection with the use of our website. Google Analytics places a cookie on the data subject’s terminal equipment. Placing the cookie enables Google to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of our website on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated is called up, the internet browser on the data subject’s terminal equipment is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. In the context of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which is used by Google among other things to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

Cookies are used to store personal information such as the time of access, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Whenever you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google Inc. in the USA. This personal data is stored by Google Inc. in the USA for 14 months. Google Inc. may pass on this personal data collected in the technical process to third parties. The data subject can prevent cookies from being placed by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the internet browser used, thus permanently objecting to the placement of cookies. If the internet browser used is set in this way, this would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to and preventing the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and relating to the use of our website as well as the processing of this data by Google. To do so, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on from This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. Installation of the browser add-on is deemed by Google to constitute objection. If the data is deleted, formatted or reinstalled on the data subject’s terminal equipment at a later date, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is removed or disabled by the data subject or another person within their sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

You can prevent your data from being collected by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is then set which prevents your data from being collected when you visit this website in the future.
