Deployment and use of Google Analytics
This website uses functions of Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files saved on your computer that enable analysis of how you use the site.

The party responsible for processing has integrated Google AdWords into this internet site. Google AdWords is an online advertising service, which authorizes advertisers to display adverts in Google search engine results as well as within the Google ad network. Google AdWords enables advertisers to determine certain key words in advance, through which an advert is then displayed in Google search engine results only when the user retrieves a search result that is relevant to the key word. In the Google ad network, adverts are placed via an automatic algorithm, using the previously determined key words to display them on internet sites related to the topic. The operating company for Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-related advertising on third-party company websites and in Google search engine results, and by displaying third-party advertising on our website.

This means that your IP address will first be truncated by Google within the area of Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transferred to the USA.

Google is commissioned by the operator of this website to use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity, and providing other services to the website operator relating to website usage and internet usage. The IP address transferred by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data by Google.
