Google Analytics 
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited, (Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland). It includes the use of “Universal Analytics” technology, which makes it possible to assign data, web sessions and interactions on several devices to an anonymised user ID, thus enabling an analysis of a user’s activities across multiple devices. 

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are saved on your computer and which enable an analysis of your usage of the website. Information generated by the cookie about your usage of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before the transfer takes place. Only in exceptional circumstances will the complete IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address of your browser conveyed in the context of Google Analytics will not be joined with other Google data. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your usage of the website in order to compile reports about the website activities and to provide the website operator with additional services in connection with the usage of the website and the internet. These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in the data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Section 15(3) German Telemedia Act (TMG) and Art. 6(1), Subparagraph 1(f), GDPR. Sessions and campaigns are terminated on expiry of a fixed period. The fixed period for the termination of sessions is generally 30 minutes without activity, and for campaigns the limit is six months. The maximum permissible time limit for campaigns is two years. More information about conditions of use and data protection can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or at https://policies.google.com/?hl=de
