5. Analysis tools and advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are saved on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.

The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics

This website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as from visitor data from third-party providers. These data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the point “Objection to data collection”.

We use the remarketing technology of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). With this technology, users who have already visited our website and online services and are interested in the offer are addressed again through targeted advertising on the pages of the Google Partner Network. The advertising is displayed through the use of cookies, which are small text files that are stored on the user’s computer. With the help of the text files, user behavior when visiting the website can be analyzed and then used for targeted product recommendations and interest-based advertising.

If you do not want to receive interest-based advertising, you can deactivate the use of cookies by Google for these purposes by visiting https://www.google.de/settings/ads/onweb .
