7. Website Analysis
For the purpose of analyzing and optimizing our websites, we use various services, which are presented below. This allows us to analyze, for example, how many users visit our site, which information is in high demand, or how users find the offer. We collect data, among other things, about from which website an affected person has come to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for what duration a subpage was viewed. This helps us to design and improve our offers to be more user-friendly. The data collected in this process is not used to personally identify individual users. Anonymous or at most pseudonymous data is collected. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) f GDPR.

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The use includes the Universal Analytics operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions, and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze a user's activities across devices.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity, and provide other services related to website and internet usage to the website operator. The purposes of data processing also include our legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 (3) TMG or Art. 6 (1) f GDPR.

If you are a member of the provider's social network and are logged into your account during your visit to this website, your data and information about your visit to this website may be linked to your profile on the social network.
