 GOOGLE ANALYTICS

For the purpose of website analytics, Google Analytics automatically collects and stores data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information on your use of our website), from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Your IP address will not be merged with other data from Google. The data processing is based on a data processing agreement with Google.

In order to optimize the marketing of our website, we have activated the data sharing settings for "Google products and services". This allows Google to access the data collected and processed by Google Analytics and then use it to improve Google services. The data sharing to Google within the scope of these data sharing settings is based on an additional agreement between the data controllers. We have no influence on the subsequent data processing by Google.

For the purposes of optimized marketing of our website, we use the so-called user ID function. With the help of this function, we can assign a unique, permanent ID to your interaction data for one or more sessions on our websites and thus analyze your user behavior across devices and sessions.

We also use the extension function of Google Analytics Google Optimize to create and run tests.

For web analytics purposes, the extension function of Google Analytics Google Signals enables so-called "cross-device tracking". If your internet-enabled devices are linked to your Google Account and you have activated the "personalised advertising" setting in your Google Account, Google can generate reports on your usage behaviour (in particular cross-device user numbers), even if you change your device. We do not process personal data in this respect; we only receive statistics based on Google Signals.

For web analytics and advertising purposes, the extension function of Google Analytics enables the so-called DoubleClick cookie to recognize your browser when visiting other websites. Google will use this information to compile reports about your website activities and to provide other services related to the use of the website.

 GOOGLE ADSENSE

The so-called DoubleClick cookie enables the display of interest-based advertising through the collection and processing of data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information on your use of our website) and the automatic assignment of a pseudonymous UserID, which is used to determine interests based on visits to this and other websites.

 GOOGLE ADS

Any further data processing only takes place if you have activated the setting "personalised advertising" in your Google account. In this case, if you are logged into Google while visiting our website, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data to create and define target group lists for cross-device remarketing.

For website analysis and event tracking, we use Google Ads Conversion Tracking to measure your subsequent usage behavior when you arrive on our website via a Google Ads ad. For this purpose, cookies may be used and data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information on your use of our website based on events specified by us, such as a visit to a website or newsletter registration) may be collected, from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms.

 GOOGLE MAPS

For the visual representation of geographical information, Google Maps collects data on your use of the Maps functions, in particular the IP address and location data, and transmits this data to Google and then processes it by Google. We have no influence on this subsequent data processing.

 GOOGLE RECAPTCHA

For the purpose of protection against misuse of our web forms as well as against spam by automated software (so-called bots), Google reCAPTCHA collects data (IP address, time of visit, browser information as well as information on your use of our website) and performs an analysis of your use of our website by means of a so-called JavaScript and cookies. In addition, other cookies stored in your browser by Google services are evaluated. Personal data is not read out or stored from the input fields of the respective form.
