Google Analytics 4
If you grant us your consent, Art. 6 I 1 a EU-GDPR, Google Analytics 4, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"), is used on this website. With this technology, we can analyze your use of our website.
When you visit our website, Google Analytics 4 places cookies on your device. This information also includes your IP address. However, we have implemented the "Anonymize-IP" procedure, so that your IP address is regularly shortened by the last four digits before it is transferred to the Google server. Therefore, the data usually is no longer personal.
However, in exceptional cases, your IP address may be shortened after it has been transferred to the Google server. Such servers can be located outside the EU, particularly in the USA at the parent company Google LLC.
We shall mention that there is currently no equivalent level of data protection in the USA and, in particular, access to data processed there or by US companies or their foreign companies worldwide may potentially be accessed by US authorities or such information may have to be disclosed to them. As a non-US citizen, you may also not be entitled to take action at all or at least my not be entitled take effective action against this. We have minimized this risk as far as possible by using suitable data protection instruments (EU standard contracts), but cannot mitigate the risk to zero, so that your consent to the use of Google Analytics also entails this risk.
Google uses the data collected on our behalf to enable an evaluation of how you use our website and to create reports on your interaction with our content. According to Google, the IP address transferred and shortened by your browser to Google in this context will not be merged with other data from Google or other data relating to you that is available at Google. The data collected as part of the use of Google Analytics 4 is stored for a maximum of 2 months and then deleted or anonymized.
In order to accompany the transfer of data to Google with a suitable instrument in terms of data protection law, we have concluded so-called EU standard contractual clauses on data protection with Google. In this way, we ensure that your data is protected as best as possible, even if it is transferred to the USA. Information on how Google handles your data in its sphere and additional information on Google Analytics 4 can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de and at https://policies.google.com /technologies/partner-sites.
You can revoke your consent any time with effect for the future and without having to name reason and without requiring a specific form. In order to exercise your right of withdrawal, you can in particular make use of our cookie settings area.
You can also prevent the storage of cookies on your device by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we shall mention that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website in full. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) being sent to Google and the processing of this data by Google by using the browser add-on available under the following link. The current link is http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
As an extension to Google Analytics 4, and also basing on your consent, we may use Google Signals. Google Signals is used to create cross-device reports. This works as follows: If you have activated personalized ads and linked your devices to a Google account, Google can analyze your usage behavior across devices and create data models.
In this way, your user activities can be merged into a uniform image regardless of the device you are using to surf our site (so-called cross-device conversion) - without making you personally identifiable to us, because we only receive anonymous statistics from Google. According to the information available to us from Google, a prerequisite for this is, in addition to your consent to us, a corresponding consent that you have given to Google.
You can terminate the use of Google Signals and thus the cross-device evaluation at any time. To do this, deactivate the "Personalized advertising" function in the settings of your Google account, as described on the Google support pages: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de More information about Google Signals can be found at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7532985?hl=de.
Google Analytics 4 uses the special function "demographic characteristics". This function is used to create statistics that allow statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. For this purpose, advertising and information from third-party providers are evaluated so that suitable target groups for marketing measures can be identified, defined and addressed. According to Google, however, this data cannot be assigned to a specific person and will be deleted in accordance with the information on Google Analytics 4.
