Privacy policy concerning the deployment and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization)

The Google Analytics data traffic analysis service (with anonymization) is integrated into our website.

The operator of Google Analytics is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Google Analytics collects and analyzes data about user behavior on specific websites. Such data include visits to websites and their subpages, the length of time spent on the website, and the website from which the user accessed the website that uses Google Analytics.

The purpose of web analysis using Google Analytics is to optimize our website and to perform a cost/benefit analysis for online advertising.

Google Analytics uses cookies (see the section on “Cookies”) that are stored on the user’s computer and that enable analysis of the user’s use of our website. In general, the data stored in the cookie are transmitted to a Google server and stored there.

Google Analytics is used on our website with the “anonymizelp” extension for anonymization.

Privacy Policy Concerning Social Media

Components of various social media, such as LinkedIn and YouTube, are integrated into our website.

If a user accesses one of our websites with such an integrated social media element, that component allows the display of components retrieved from the server of the operator of the social media components.

Furthermore, once the user visits our websites, a direct connection is created via the social media components between your browser and the server of the operator of the social media components. Each time our website or subpages of our website are accessed, the operator receives information about which specific websites and subpages are visited by the user with the corresponding IP address. Please note that we are not informed of the content of the transmitted data and the use of such data by the operator.

Once the user clicks on a link to one of the social media components, the subpage of the operator of the social media components opens in a new browser window and shows content of the controller. Please note that the websites linked to by the social media components are not operated by us, so this Privacy Statement does not apply to those websites. Furthermore, for the afore­mentioned reason, we cannot assume any liability for the protection of personal data when accessing such websites.
