10. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics tool provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files saved on your computer, to help the website to analyze how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie and regarding your behavior when using the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. If the the IP anonymization is activated, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transferring data. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to Google servers in the USA and then shortened.

On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of analyzing your behavior when you are using the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension „_anonymizeIp()“. With this extension, all IP addresses will be shortened what makes it impossible to link data to a particular individual.

We additionally use the Google Tag Manager. With this service we are able to manage website tags. The Google Tag Manager only sets up tags. Tags are code that is used to measure traffic and visitor behavior. The tags are provided by other services – in our case Google Analytics. The Google Tag Manager only manages these tags, does not set cookies and does not collect any personal data. If tracking is deactivated, this also applies to all tracking tags managed by the Google Tag Manager.
