Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (hereinafter: Google). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files stored on your computer that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this Website is normally sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If you have activated IP anonymization for this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google beforehand within the Member States of the European Union or in other countries that are contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional situations will your full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator in order to analyse your use of the website, prepare reports on website activities and to provide other services relating to website and Internet use to the website operator. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

The purposes of the data processing are the evaluation of the use of the website and the compilation of reports on the activities on the website. Other associated services shall then be provided, based on the use of the website and the internet. This processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.

You can prevent cookies from being stored by changing the relevant settings in your browser software; however, please note that in this case you may not be able to take full advantage of all the functions of this website.

This involves the installation of an opt-out cookie on your device. Collection of data by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser shall be prevented in future as long as the cookie is installed in your browser.

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

In order to enable us to present contents correctly and in a graphically attractive manner in all browsers, this website uses script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web fonts (( To avoid repeated loading, Google Webfonts are transferred to the cache of your browser. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access to Google Webfonts, contents will be shown in a standard font.

The request for script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible that operators of relevant libraries collect data, although it is currently unclear if they do so and for what purposes.

The data protection guideline of the library operator Google can be found here:

Amendment of our data protection provisions

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy in order that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements, or to implement changes of our services in the privacy policy, such as at the introduction of new services. For your subsequent visit, the new privacy policy shall apply.
