Use of Google Analytics with anonymization

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland, hereinafter referred to as “Google“. Google Analytics employs so-called “cookies“, text files that are stored to your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the site.

The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits to our site, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there.

We use Google Analytics with an IP anonymization feature on our website. In doing so, Google abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from member states of the European Union or signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of our site, to compile reports on website activity for us, and to provide other services related to website- and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or to the extent this data is processed by third parties on Google´s behalf.

Google states that it will in never associate your IP address with other data held by Google. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

Google also offers a disabling option for the most common browsers, thereby providing you with greater control over the data which is collected and processed by Google. If you enable this option, no information regarding your website visit is transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the activation does not prevent the transmission of information to us or to any other web analytics services we may use. For more information about the disabling option provided by Google, and how to enable this option, visit:

If you visit our site through a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you need to click this link instead to block Google Analytics tracking within this site in the future. This is also possible as an alternative to the above browser add-on. Clicking on the link will set an opt-out cookie in your browser which is only valid for this browser and this domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie is also deleted, so you must click the link again.

If you've consented to Google linking your web and app browsing history to your Google account and using information from your Google account to personalize your ads, Google will use your data with Google Analytics data to create target group lists for cross-device remarketing. To do this, Google Analytics will initially track your Google-authenticated ID associated with your Google account (that’s your personally identifiable information) on our website. Afterwards, Google Analytics will temporarily link your ID with your Google Analytics data to optimize our target groups

If you do not agree to this, you can opt-out through the "My Account" section of your Google account.

Newsletter via Newsletter2go

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify you as the owner of the e-mail address given and that you agree with the receipt of the newsletter. To ensure that the newsletter is correctly sent by us, we use the double-opt-in procedure. Using this, the potential recipient can then be included in a distribution list. Afterwards, the recipient receives a confirmation e-mail to legally confirm the application. Only when this confirmation is made, can the address be actively included in the distribution list. We use this data exclusively for the delivery of the requested information and offers.

Newsletter2Go is used as newsletter software. Your data will be transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH who is prohibited from selling and using your data for purposes other than sending newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a certified German provider, which was selected according to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act.

Further information can be found here:

The consent granted for the storage of data, the e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.

Data protection measures are always subject to technical renewal and, for this reason, we ask you to inform yourself about our data protection measures at regular intervals by viewing our privacy policy.

The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server of Newsletter2Go when the newsletter is opened. This call will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval. This information is used to technically improve services based on specifications of target groups and their reading habits, using their call locations (only using nearby wireless mast locations) or access times. Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters will be opened, when they will be opened, and which links will be clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our desire nor that of Newsletter2Go to observe individual users and these evaluations serve much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

We will then no longer process your data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or processing for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims. You can object to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct mail at any time without stating reasons.
