ART. 2 - Analysis

2.1 Information: For the purpose of analysing and optimising our websites, we use the various services described below. This enables us to analyse, for example, how many users visit our site, what information is most requested and how users find the website. The data we collect include the websites from which the user arrives at another website ('referrers'), which subpages of the website they access and how often, and the length of time for which they view a subpage. In this way we are able to develop and improve our website to make it more user-friendly. The data collected is not used to personally identify individual users. Anonymous or pseudonymised data will be collected.

ART. 3 - Google Analytics

3.1 Information: This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, United States). This use covers the operating mode of Universal Analytics. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions on multiple devices to a pseudonymised user ID and thus analyse a user's activities on all devices. Google Analytics uses cookies to analyse the user’s use of the website. The information generated by the cookie through the user’s use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, the user’s IP address will be truncated in advance in member states of the European Union or other contracting states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated thereafter. The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating the user’s use of the website in order to compile reports on website activity and other services relating to website activity and internet usage for the website operator. Our legitimate interest in data processing is also justified for these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. Data sent by us and linked to cookies, user information (such as user ID) and promotional IDs are deleted after 14 months after the last use of our services. Data whose storage period has expired are automatically deleted once a month. Further information on terms and conditions of use and data protection can be found at e
