Use of Google Analytics

Type and purpose of processing:

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereafter: “Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” – text files stored on your computer to enable the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to the website usage and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.

The purposes of the data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and compile reports on activities on the website. Based on the use of the website and the internet, other related services will be provided.

Legal basis:

The processing of the data is carried out based on the consent of the user (Article 6 (1) (a) DSGVO).

Recipient:

The recipient of the data is Google as a processor. For this we have completed the corresponding order processing contract with Google.

Storage duration:

The deletion of data takes place as soon as it is no longer necessary for our recording purposes.

Transfer to a third country:

Google processes your data in the US and complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. We also have standard privacy clauses with Google for the use of Google Analytics.

Provision prescribed by law or required for other reasons:

The provision of your personal data is voluntary, solely on the basis of your consent. If you prevent access, this may result in the website functions being restricted.

Withdrawal of consent:

You can prevent these cookies being stored using an appropriate setting in your browser software; but we inform you that in this case you might not be able to use all of the functions of this website completely. In addition, you may prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your 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 available through the following link: The Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking this link. An opt-out cookie will be installed on your device. This will prevent the collection by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

Profiling:

With the help of the tracking tool Google Analytics, the behaviour of the website visitors can be evaluated and their interests can be analysed. For this we create a pseudonymous user profile.

Use of Google Maps

Type and purpose of processing:

On this website we use Google Maps. Google Maps is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereafter “Google”). This allows us to show you interactive maps directly on the website, allowing you to conveniently use the map feature.

For more information about Google’s data processing, please refer to the Google Privacy Policy. There you can also change your personal privacy settings in the privacy centre.
Detailed instructions on how to manage your own data in relation to Google products can be found here.

Legal basis:

The legal basis for the integration of Google Maps and the associated data transfer to Google is your consent (Article 6 (1) a DSGVO).

Recipient:

By visiting the website, Google receives information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to, or if there is no user account. When you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account.

If you do not wish to be assigned to Google on your profile, you must log out of Google before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or needs-based website design. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the formation of these user profiles, and you must address this to Google.

Storage duration:

We do not collect personal information through the inclusion of Google Maps.

Transfer to a third country:

Google processes your data in the US and complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Withdrawal of consent:

If you do not want Google to collect, process or use information about you through our website, you can disable JavaScript in your browser settings. In this case, you will not be able to, or only partially be able to use our website.

Provision prescribed by law or required for other reasons:

The provision of your personal data is voluntary, solely on the basis of your consent. If you prevent access, this may result in the website functions being restricted.

Embedded YouTube videos

Type and purpose of processing:

On some of our websites, we embed YouTube videos. The respective plugins are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (hereinafter “YouTube”). When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, it will connect to YouTube’s servers. It tells YouTube which pages you visit. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube may personally associate your browsing behaviour with you. This can be prevented by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

If a YouTube video begins playing, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

Recipient:

Calling up YouTube automatically triggers a connection to Google.

Duration of storage and revoking consent:

Users who have disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad programme do not need to expect any such cookies when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information with other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.
