Using Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (hereinafter: Google). Google Analytics uses so-called „cookies“, which are small text files stored on your computer in order to help us analyze the way you access and view as well as use our website. Such information collected through cookies will generally be transferred to a Google server in the US to be stored there. Due to IP anonymization on such websites, Google will however shorten your IP address within the reach of the member states of the European Union or of other signatories of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will Google transfer your complete IP address to a server in the US and shorten it there. On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information to analyze your use of this website, to compile reports about the activities on the website, and to assist the website provider with further analytics connected to the website usage and Internet usage such as may benefit the provider. Google will not connect the IP address acquired from your browser through Google Analytics with any other data it has obtained.
The purpose of processing such data is to analyze the way the website is being used and to compile reports about the activities on such website. Based on these insights into the usage of the website and the Internet, further services connected herewith shall be provided. Such data processing is a legitimate interest of the website provider.
You have the option to prohibit the storage of cookies by changing the settings of your browser accordingly; however, we would like to point out to you that you might not have unrestricted access to all functions of the website or may experience issues with viewing and using the website. Furthermore, you have the option to prevent Google from collecting and processing such Google Analytics data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in found here: Browser Add-On for Deactivating Google Analytics.

In doing so, you install an opt-out cookie on your computer which will prevent Google Analytics from further collecting data for this website and through this browser, for as long as the opt-out cookie remains installed on your browser.

Using Script Libraries (Google Webfonts)

In order to display our content correctly and in a graphically appealing way across all browsers, this website uses Script Libraries and Font Libraries such as, for example, Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Webfonts are transferred to your browser cache to avoid repeated loading. In the event that your browser does not support Google Webfonts or restricts its access, all content will be displayed in a standard font.
Accessing Script Libraries and Font Libraries will automatically initiate a connection to the libraries’ provider. Thus, it is theoretically possible – though currently debatable if and for what purposes – that such third party library providers may collect data relevant to them.
You can find the privacy policy of Google Webfonts here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Using Google Maps

This website uses the Google Maps API in order to visually present geographic information. This usage of Google Maps involves the obtaining, processing and using of information by Google regarding the way the website visitors use the map functions. You can find more information on Google’s data processing policy here. This link will lead you to the Google privacy center where you can also change your personal data privacy settings.

Embedded YouTube Videos

We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. Such plug-ins are provided by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a website with the YouTube plug-in, a connection to the YouTube servers will be established. In doing so, YouTube is notified which websites you are visiting. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube is also able to assign your browsing habits to your profile. You may prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account before accessing embedded videos.
As soon as a YouTube video starts playing, its provider will use cookies to collect information regarding your user behavior.
If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for Google Ads, you will not have to fear the storage of such cookies while you view YouTube videos. YouTube, however, also files other non-personal usage information in other cookies. To prevent this, you need to deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser settings.
