6. Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "Cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to allow the website operator to analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services related to website and Internet use.
The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This means that IP addresses are processed further in a shortened version, which excludes the possibility of attribution to a particular individual. If the data collected about you is attributable to your person, this attribution is therefore immediately excluded and the personal data therefore immediately deleted.
