This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA.

On behalf of the operators of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operators with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Objection against data collection
Order data processing
We have concluded a contract data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics. Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics: This website uses the 'demographic characteristics' function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain information on age, gender and interests of the website's visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as from visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section 'Objection to data collection'.
Use of web fonts
External fonts, Google Fonts, are used on this website. Google Fonts is a service provided by Google Inc. ('Google'). These web fonts are integrated through a server call, usually a Google server in the USA. This will tell the server which of our websites you have visited. The IP address of the browser of the terminal device of the visitor to this website is also saved by Google. You can find more information in Google's data protection information, which you can access here: https://fonts.google.com/#AboutPlace:about
Facebook plugins (like button)
Our pages use Google+ functions. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Collection and dissemination of information: You can use the Google+ button to publish information worldwide. You and other users receive personalized content from Google and our partners via the Google+ button. Google saves both the information that you have given +1 for content and information about the page that you viewed when you clicked +1. Your +1 can be displayed as a reference along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or in other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet. Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. In order to be able to use the Google+ button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your email address or who have other identifying information about you. Use of the information collected: In addition to the purposes outlined above, the information you provide will be used in accordance with the applicable Google data protection provisions. Google may publish summarized statistics about the +1 activities of users or pass them on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or linked websites.
