Use of Google Analytics

 

Type and purpose of processing:

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files stored on your computer which allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address is first shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting member states of the European Economic Area . Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide additional services related to website use and Internet use to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

The data is processed to evaluate the use of the website and compile reports about activities on the website. The purpose is to be able to provide further services based on visitors’ use of the website and the Internet.

 

Profiling:

The tracking tool Google Analytics helps to evaluate the behaviour of visitors to the website and analyse their interests. A pseudonymous user profile is created for this purpose.

 

Recipients:

If you are logged into Google, your data will be linked directly to your account. If you do not want your data to be linked to your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data in the form of user profiles for the purposes of advertising and market research and/or to tailor its website to user needs.

The purpose of the application is the embedding and user-friendly presentation of videos and video sequences on our website. For this purpose, we use the provider’s plug-ins. If you call up web pages on our website that are equipped with such a plug-in, a connection will be established to the Vimeo servers and the plug-in is portrayed. This sends a message to the Vimeo server indicating which of our web pages you have visited. 

If you are logged into Vimeo as a member at the time, Vimeo allocates this information to your personal user account. When you use the plug-in by clicking on the start button of a video for example, this information is also allocated to your user account. You can prevent this allocation by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the relevant Vimeo cookies.
