INFORMATION ON DATA PROCESSING related to GOOGLE ANALYTICS

This webpage uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited. If the responsible party for data processing on this webpage is outside of the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google LLC will manage the Google Analytics Data Processing. We refer to Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited as “Google” below. 

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” (text files) that are stored on the web page visitor’s computer and that permit an analysis of the visitor’s use of the webpage. The information gleaned from the cookie on the visitor’s use of the webpage (including a shortened IP address) are usually transferred to a Google server and stored there.

Google Analytics will only be used on this webpage with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This extension allows the anonymization of the IP address by shortening it and prohibits a direct connection to a person. This extension shortens the IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other treaty nations of the European Economic Area in advance. The full IP address will only be transferred as an exception to a server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address collected from the corresponding browser will not be merged with other data from Google.

Google will use the information on behalf of the webpage operator to evaluate the usage of the webpage, to create reports on webpage activity, and to complete the services associated with internet use for the webpage provider (Art. 6, par. 1, lit f DSGVO). The reasonable interest in data processing lies in the optimization of this webpage, the analysis of the usage of the webpage, and in the adjustment of content. Due to the pseudo-anonymization, the users’ interests are adequately protected. 

 

Goggle LLC is certified in accordance with the so-called privacy shield (list entry here) and guarantees an adequate data protection level. The data linked to cookies, user recognition (e.g. user ID), or advertising IDs is automatically deleted after 50 months. The deletion of data that has exceeded the storage duration takes place automatically once a month.

The collection by Google Analytics can be revoked if the visitor adjusts the cookie settings on this webpage. The collection and storage of the IP address and the data collected with cookies can furthermore be rescinded at any time with effect for the future. The corresponding browser plugin can be downloaded and installed through the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

The webpage visitor can revoke the collection by Google Analytics on this webpage by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set, which prevents future data collection when visiting this webpage.

Further information about data collection by Google as well as possibilities regarding the settings and rescission can be found in the data protection declaration by Google (https://policies.google.com/privacy) and in the settings for pop-up advertising by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated).

RECAPTCHA

In order to protect your online inquiries, we use the reCAPTCHA service of Google Inc. (Google). This service is used to differentiate whether an inquiry comes from a person or from an improper machine processor. The inquiry includes sending the IP address and possibly other information Google requires for the reCAPTCHA service. Your information will be transferred to Google and used there. However, Google will shorten your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other treaty nations of the European Economic Area before sending it. The full IP address will only be transferred as an exception to a server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the webpage provider to evaluate the use of this webpage. The IP address collected from the corresponding browser will not be merged with other data from Google. Differing data protection provisions of the Google enterprise apply for this data. You will find further information about Google's data protection guidelines under https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de
