Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, location, time or frequency of visits to our website, are transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function. With this function, Google shortens the IP address within the EU or the EEA.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of the visit to our website and of the usage activities there. This data can also be used to provide other services related to the use of our website and the use of the Internet.

Google states that it will not associate your IP address with other data. In addition, Google maintains

This add-on can be installed with common internet browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you visit our website. The add-on informs the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that information about visiting our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services.

Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website.

Without this "extended data protection", a connection to the YouTube server in the USA will be established as soon as you call up one of our Internet pages on which a YouTube video is embedded.

This connection is required in order to be able to display the respective video on our website via your internet browser. In the course of this, YouTube will at least record and process your IP address, the date and time and the website you visited. A connection to the Google “DoubleClick” advertising network is also established.

If you are logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube will assign the connection information to your YouTube account. If you want to prevent this, you must either log out of YouTube before visiting our website or make the appropriate settings in your YouTube user account.

For the purpose of functionality and to analyze usage behavior, YouTube permanently saves cookies on your device via your Internet browser. If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the storage of cookies by setting your Internet browser. You can find more information on this under "Cookies" above.
