Article 5 Use of Google Analytics

(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics used so-called “Cookies”, text files, which are saved on your computer and provides analysis of website use based on these cookies. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is sent to a server in USA and stored there. By activating IP anonymization on this website, your IP address is shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states party to the agreement on the European Economic Area. The complete IP address will be transferred to a Google server in USA and shortened there only in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to create reports about website activities for website operators and to provide services associated with website use and Internet use to the website operator.

(2) This website uses Google Analytics with extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This is used to shorten the IP addresses for processing and thus rules out direct reference to a person.

(3) The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics from your browser will not be included in any other data of Google.

(4) You can prevent installation of cookies by changing your browser settings; however, we would like to inform you that you may not be able to use all functions of this website completely if you disable cookies.

(6) If you visit our website using a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you must instead <a href=“javascript:gaOptout()“>click this link</a>, in order to disable tracking by Google Analytics within this website. This is also possible as alternative to the above browser add-on. By clicking this link, you can set an Opt-Out cookie in your browser, which is valid only for this browser and this domain. When you delete the cookies in your browser, the Opt-Out-Cookie will also be deleted and as a result you have to click the link again.

(7) We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website and regularly improve it. Based on the statistics obtained, we can improve our service and make it more interesting to you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 Item f GDPR.

Article 9 Use of Google Web Fonts

For the purpose of providing uniform typefaces, this site uses what are known as web fonts, provided by Google. When loading a page, your browser loads into its browser cache the web fonts needed to display texts and typefaces correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This means that Google will know that our website has been loaded by your IP address. The use of web fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appropriate representation of our online services. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 Item f GDPR.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard typeface from your computer will be used.

You can find more information about Google web fonts at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s data protection policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Article 10 Use of Cloudflare

We use a “Content Delivery Network” (CDN) from Cloudflare, Inc., 101 Townsend St, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. The provider is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, thereby guaranteeing compliance with European data protection law  (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnZKAA0&status=Active).

A CDN is a service that helps deliver the content of our online services more rapidly using regionally distributed and Internet-connected servers, particularly large media files, such as graphics or scripts. User data is processed only for the specified purposes and to maintain security and functionality of the CDN.

This use is based on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 Item f GDPR), i.e. secure and efficient provision, analysis and optimisation of our online services.
