Notes on data processing in connection with Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the data controller is located on this website outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as "Google". Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on the computer of the visitor to the website and which enable an analysis of the use of the website by the visitor to the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the visitor to the website (including the abbreviated IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Google Analytics is used exclusively with the "_anonymizeIp()" extension on this website. This extension ensures anonymization of the IP address by truncation and excludes direct personal access. The extension will shorten Google's IP address within Member States of the European Union or other contracting states of 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 truncated there. The IP address transmitted by the corresponding browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. On behalf of the site operator, Google will use the information generated for the purpose of evaluating the use of the website, accommodating reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR).

The interests of the users are adequately safeguarded by anonymization. Google LLC. is certified according to the so-called Privacy Shield (list entry here) and guarantees an adequate level of data protection on this basis. The data sent and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs will be automatically deleted after 50 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached takes place automatically once a month.
