5. Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland (hereafter "Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your use of our website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on our website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting 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 USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. In addition, we use the "demographic features" function of Google Analytics. As a result, reports that contain details about your age, gender and interests can be generated. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person.
You can prevent the storage of cookies through a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we wish to point out that in this case you may not be able to fully use all the functions of our website.
