Third Party’s cookies: Google Analytics

 

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google 
Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which will be saved on your computer and facilitates the analysis as regards the use of the Site by you. The information generated by the cookie 
concerning your use of this website is normally transmitted to a server of Google in the US and 
saved there. In case of activation of the IP-anonymization on this website, your IP-address will first be shortened within the Member States of the European Union or in other contractual countries in 
which the agreement of the European Economic Area applies. Only in exceptional cases the entire IP-address will be transmitted to a server of Google in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the provider of this website Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this website, to 
create reports on the website activities and to perform further services connected to the website use and the internet use vis-à-vis the website provider. 

The IP-address transmitted from your browser in the framework of Google Analytics, will not be 
combined with other data from Google.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension „__anonymizelp()“. By that the shortened IP-addresses are further processed, and hence a personalization can be excluded. If the data 
collected on you allow a personalization, this will immediately be excluded, and the personal data will then be deleted.

Other services from third party providers and social buttons

 

On our website we also use services of third-party providers (for example Google Maps, YouTube).  Should the mentioned providers use these personal data, this would in any event take place outside of the sphere of responsibility of the provider of this website. 

These services always require your IP-address for the presentation of contents, because without the IP-address, the third-party providers would not be able to send contents to your browser. We are committed to use only contents from providers who use the IP-address exclusively to deliver 
contents. However, we cannot influence it, if third-party providers save the IP-address for example for statistical purposes. Third-party providers can also send cookies to your web browser. 

 

The “buttons” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube, Pinterest and Instagram in the footer or 
the side menu are no plugins of external pages but links. In this case only by clicking on them a link will be opened in a new window which then calls up the respective services. Only then a data 
transmission takes place, like for example the transmission of information concerning the “opening page”.   

Social networks provider to which the buttons refer are autonomous controllers of data processing. More information about the individual privacy policies of social network platforms and how to manage and deactivate their cookies can be found on social network platforms.
