Web page analysis

For the purposes of analysis and optimisation of our web pages, we use different services which are further explained below. They enable us, for example, to analyse how many users visit our website, what information is of most interest and how users discover our online content. Among other things, we collect the data regarding the web link that directed the user to our web page (so-called referrer), the particular subpages of the web page that were visited, as well as how often and how long a certain subpage was viewed. This helps us to improve our online content and make it more user-friendly. The collected data is not used to identify individual users. The collected data is anonymous or, at most, pseudonymous. The legal basis for this is established in item (f) Art. 6 (1) of the GDRP.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The features of the service that we use are “Universal Analytics” features. They make it possible to attribute data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID, thus giving us the ability to analyse the activities of a user on all devices.

Google Analytics uses Cookies which allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it is saved. If IP anonymisation has been enabled on this website, your IP address will be truncated in advance by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other countries outside of the European Union which are signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA before it is truncated. The IP address identified from your browser by Google Analytics will not be merged with other data collected by Google. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide other services for the website operator related to the use of the website and internet usage. In doing so, we pursue our legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is established in § 15 (3) of the German Telemedia Act and item (f) of Art. 6 (1) of the GDRP. The data we send that is linked to cookies, user identifying information (e.g. user ID) or marketing ID will be deleted automatically in 26 months.

In such cases, we ensure that prior to the transmission of your personal data the recipient has created an adequate level of data protection, meaning that through EU standard contracts or an Adequacy decision, such as the EU-Privacy Shield, a level of data protection is reached which is comparable to the standards within the EU.
