The tracking measures we use are based on article 6 paragraph 1 page 1 lit. f GDPR, section 15 paragraph 3 TMG (German Telemedia Act). Our stated interests are justified within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.

  1. a) Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., for the purpose of tailoring our web pages to meet your needs and continually optimise them. ( (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”). In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies are set (also refer to point 5). Information generated by cookies about your use of this website, such as browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL (the previously visited page), host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and the time of the server request is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Our legitimate interest in data processing also corresponds to these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is section 15 paragraph 3 TMG in combination with article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR.

This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data as part of an order.
