2.2. Use of Google Universal Analytics for web analysis

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland, on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the user is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active). Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and the internet. In doing so, pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data. We use Google Analytics in the form of “Universal Analytics”. “Universal Analytics” refers to a process by Google Analytics in which the user analysis is carried out on the basis of a pseudonymous user ID and thus a pseudonymous profile of the user is created with information from the use of different devices (so-called “cross-device tracking”) .

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other Google data. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; Users can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to their use of the online offer and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http: // tools .google.com / dlpage / gaoptout? hl = de.

We use Google Analytics to only display the advertisements placed by Google and its partners’ advertising services to users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products that are based on the visited Websites) that we transmit to Google (so-called “remarketing” or “Google Analytics audiences”). With the help of remarketing audiences, we also want to ensure that our advertisements correspond to the potential interest of the users.

3. Social Media Plugins

When you visit a page of our website that contains a plugin, your browser connects directly to the servers of the social network. The content of the plugin is then transmitted directly from a server of the social network to your browser and embedded in the webpage. This provides the social network with the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile with the social network or are currently not signed in. This information (including your IP address) is sent by your browser directly to a social network server in the United States and stored there.

When you are signed in to a social network, the social network can directly link your visit to our website to your profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking on the “Like” button or by leaving a comment, this information is also transmitted directly to a server and stored there.

For more information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the social network as well as your related rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the data protection policy of the respective network.

If you do not want a social network to directly allocate the data collected via our website to your profile, you must sign out of the social network before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the plugins from being loaded by using add-ons on your browser, e.g. script blocker “NoScript” (http://noscript.net).
