If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics 4, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC. The controller for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google").
Nature and purpose of the processing
We use Google Signals. This allows Google Analytics to collect additional information about users who have personalised ads enabled (interests and demographics) and ads can be delivered to these users in cross-device remarketing campaigns.
Google Analytics 4 has IP anonymisation enabled by default. Due to IP anonymisation, your IP address will be shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. According to Google, the IP address transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
During your website visit, your user behaviour is recorded in the form of "events". Events can be:
• Page views
• First visit to the website
• Start of session
• Web pages visited
• Your "click path", interaction with the website
• Scrolls (whenever a user scrolls to the bottom of the page (90%))
• Clicks on external links
• Internal search queries
• Interaction with videos
• File downloads
• Seen Ads / clicked Ads
• Your approximate location (region)
• Date and time of your visit
• Your IP address (in shortened form)
• Technical information about your browser and the end devices you use (e.g. language setting, screen resolution)
• your internet service provider
• the referrer URL (via which website/advertising medium you came to this website)
Purposes of the data processing
On behalf of the operator Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website and to compile reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics 4 serve to analyse the performance of our website.
Recipients of the data are/may be
• Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (as processor under Art. 28 DSGVO)
• Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA

Third country transfer
For the USA, the European Commission adopted a news adequacy decision on 10 July 2023. Google LLC is certified under the EU-US Privacy Framework. Since Google servers are distributed worldwide and a transfer to third countries (for example to Singapore) cannot be completely ruled out, we have also concluded the EU standard contractual clauses with the provider to establish an appropriate level of data protection in those countries.
