5. Analysis tools

We use the following analysis tools on our website. The service provider residing in the USA has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework).

5.1 Google Analytics

Insofar as you have given us permission to use marketing cookies in the context of the cookie notice that appears when calling up our Internet pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

The information these cookies generate about the use of our website is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Our website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymize IP.” This means that the IP address collected by the Google Analytics cookie will be truncated within member states of the European Union or other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before that address is transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of our website, compile reports about website activities, and render additional services for us which are connected with website use and internet use. The IP address that your browser has transmitted as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.

You can revoke this consent at anytime with effect for the future by using the following deactivation options. You can prevent Google from recording or processing the data the cookie generates which relates to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. However, we would like to point out that if you do so, you might not be able to use all of our website’s functions to their full extent.

You can also prevent Google Analytics from recording the data by clicking the following link (https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html). In this case, an opt-out cookie will be placed that prevents your data from being recorded when you visit our website in the future.
