In order to design our website as required, we create pseudonymous user profiles through Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses so-called ‘cookies’, i.e. Text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information created through the cookie concerning your use of this website will generally be transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. Since we have activated IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated within the Member States of the European Union or states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area in advance. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and subsequently abbreviated there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website for us, to create reports concerning website activity and to carry out other services related to the use of the website and the Internet for us.
You can object to the creation of pseudonymous user profiles at any time. There are several ways to do this:
1.) One way to object to web analytics through Google Analytics is to set an opt-out cookie that instructs Google not to store or use your information for the purpose of web analytics. Please note that with this solution, the web analysis will only be stopped while the opt-out cookie is stored by the browser. If you would like to set the opt-out cookie now, please click here.
2.) You may prevent the storage of cookies used for profile creation by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software.
3.) Depending on the browser you are using, you have the option of installing a browser plug-in that prevents tracking. To do this, please click here and install the browser plug-in available there.
