Usage of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service offered by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", meaning text bits that are downloaded to your computer and used to analyse your usage of the website. This information produced by the cookie is usually transmitted to and saved on a Google server in the USA. Because of the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, however, your IP address is shortened in EU member states and in other contracting member states. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to evaluate your usage of this website in order to compile reports about the activities on it and to render further services connected to the usage of this website and the internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
The purposes of the data processing are the evaluation of the usage of this website and the compilation of reports about the activities on it. On this basis, further related services are to be rendered. The processing rests upon the legitimate interests of the website's operator.
You can prevent the storage of cookies with the respective settings of your browser software. Please note, however, that these settings might disable some of the functions on this website.

Calling up script or font libraries automatically sets up a connection to the operator of the library. Theoretically, it is possible for the operator of the respective libraries to collect data. It is unclear, though, if and for which purposes (if any) this occurs.

Our website uses Google conversion tracking. When entering our website through an ad placed by Google, a cookie by Google AdWords is downloaded to your computer. This cookie for conversion tracking is downloaded when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. When visiting certain pages on our website before the cookie expires, we and Google can tell that the user clicked on the ad and was forwarded to this website. Every Google AdWords client receives a different cookie. That way, cookies cannot be traced through the websites of AdWords clients. The data collected through conversion cookies is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords clients who opt for conversion tracking. The clients learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were forwarded to a website with a conversion tracking tag. They do not, however, receive any personal information about any user.
Should you not want to be tracked, you can prevent the download of the cookie in your browser settings by either choosing to decline any automatic downloads of cookies in general or by setting your browser to block any cookie downloads by "googleleadservices.com".
Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies for as long as you do not want any data to be collected. If you have deleted all cookies in your browser, you have to install the respective opt-out cookie again.
We may modify this policy at any time to ensure that it is always in compliance with the current legal requirements, or to implement the changes in our services in this policy. The updated policy will then apply to your next visit.
