4. Use of Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your website usage to be conducted. The information generated by these cookies on your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymisation has been activated on this website, your IP address will, however, be abbreviated in advance by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other countries that have signed the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to analyse your usage of the website, to compile reports on the website activities for us as website operators and to render further services associated with the usage of the website and of the Internet. Google will not interlink the IP address conveyed by your browser in the scope of Google Analytics with other data held by Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies by means of an appropriate setting of your browser software; we would like to point out, however, that in such cases you may not be able to make full use of all the functions offered by our website. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your usage of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser plug-in at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
We wish to expressly point out that on this website Google Analytics has been enhanced to include the code “gat._anonymizelp();” in order to ensure anonymised recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
In addition, you can prevent recording by Google Analytics by a click on the following link. An opt-out cookie is then set that prevents further recording of your data upon accessing this website. This procedure is particularly recommended when accessing our site using mobile devices.
We base the use of the analytics tools referred to above on Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR: processing is carried out for the analysis of user behaviour and is thus necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests.
5. Using Google reCAPTCHA
We use the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google Inc. on our website (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”).
The query serves the purpose of distinguishing the input by a human or by automated, machine processing. Your input will be sent to Google and used there. In addition, the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service will be transmitted to Google. This data is processed by Google within the European Union and possibly also in the USA. Data transfers to the US include a European Commission adequacy decision, the Privacy Shield. Google participates in the “Privacy Shield” and has submitted to the specifications.
Processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO from the legitimate interest to protect our website from automated spying, abuse and SPAM.
