Google Analytics analyzes, among other things, the origin of visitors, the time they spend on individual pages and the use of search engines, thus enabling better monitoring of the success of advertising campaigns. Google places a cookie on your computer. This allows personal data to be stored and evaluated, in particular the activity of the user (in particular which pages have been visited and which elements have been clicked on), device and browser information (in particular the IP address and operating system), data on the advertisements displayed (in particular which advertisements were displayed and whether the user clicked on them) and also data from advertising partners (in particular pseudonymized user IDs).
    We use Google Analytics (Universal Analytics) to evaluate your use of our online presence, to compile reports on your activities and to use other Google services associated with the use of our online presence and the Internet.
    We have requested the anonymization of IP addresses, whereby Google shortens your IP address as soon as technically possible. However, it cannot be ruled out that your data will be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC based in the USA.
    On behalf of the operator of this online presence, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the online presence, to compile reports on the activities of the online presence and to provide other services related to the use of the online presence and internet usage to the operator of the online presence.
    Further information on the processing of data by Google can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?gl=DE&hl=de

  2. Purpose of data processing

    We use Google Analytics (Universal Analytics) to analyze the use of our online presence and to display targeted advertising to people who have already shown an initial interest by visiting our website.

  3. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

    The legal basis for the processing of users’ personal data is generally the user’s consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 S.1 lit. a GDPR.
  4. Duration of storage

    Your personal information will be stored for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes described in this Privacy Policy or until you exercise your right of withdrawal.

  5. Possibility of revocation

    You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
    You can prevent the collection and processing of your personal data by Google by preventing the storage of third-party cookies on your computer, by using the “Do Not Track” function of a supporting browser, by deactivating the execution of script code in your browser or by using a script blocker such as NoScript (https://noscript.net/) or Ghostery (https://www.ghostery.com) in your browser.

    6. hazard warning

    Your personal data will also be transferred to the USA. There is no adequacy decision for the USA pursuant to Art. 45 para. 3 GDPR. We would like to point out that data transmission without an adequacy decision entails certain risks, which we would like to inform you about below:
    US intelligence agencies use certain online identifiers (such as IP addresses or unique identification numbers) as a starting point for monitoring individuals. In particular, it cannot be ruled out that these messaging services have already collected information about you, with the help of which the data transmitted here can be traced back to you.
    Providers of electronic communications services headquartered in the United States are subject to surveillance by U.S. intelligence agencies pursuant to 50 U.S. Code § 1881a (“FISA 702”). Accordingly, providers of electronic communications services headquartered in the USA are obliged to make personal data available to the US authorities in accordance with 50 U.S. Code § 1881a, without you possibly being entitled to any legal remedies. Even encryption of data in the data centers of the electronic communications service provider cannot provide adequate protection, as an electronic communications service provider has a direct obligation to grant access to or hand over imported data in its possession, custody or control. This obligation may also expressly extend to the cryptographic keys without which the data cannot be read.
    The fact that this is not merely a “theoretical risk” is demonstrated by the ECJ ruling of July 16, 2020 (Case C 311/18, “Schrems-II”).
    We have agreed guarantees with Google in the form of standard data protection clauses in accordance with Art. Art. 46 para. 2 lit. c GDPR concluded. A copy of the standard data protection clauses can be requested from us.

Google Tag Manager can be used to manage and bundle tags from Google and third-party services and embed them on an online presence. Tags are small code elements on an online presence that are used, among other things, to measure visitor numbers and behaviour, to record the impact of online advertising and social channels, to use remarketing and targeting and to test and optimize online presences. When a user visits the online presence, the current tag configuration is sent to the user’s browser. It contains instructions on which tags should be triggered. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Information on this can be found in the sections on the use of the corresponding services in this privacy policy. Google Tag Manager does not access this data.
    Further information on Google Tag Manager can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/faq.htmlundin Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de

We have no influence on the content of the plug-in. If you are logged into your YouTube account during your visit, YouTube can assign your online presence visit to this account. By interacting with this plug-in, this corresponding information is transmitted directly to YouTube and stored there.
