Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment to you as a person is not possible. Google is listed as a Privacy Shield participant. The Privacy Shield Agreement between the EU and the USA guarantees minimum standards in data protection.

We also use Google Remarketing (so-called DoubleClick by Google) for online advertising and to evaluate the use of our website. The combined use of first-party cookies and third-party cookies can be used in reports to evaluate how display impressions are related to website visits. Third-party providers, including Google, have the opportunity to place advertisements on websites and to align and optimize them based on previous visits to the website according to demographic characteristics and interests (e.g. age, gender or interests). The data can be obtained from Google or from visitor data from third parties.

We also use Google Tag Manager to manage the services related to usage-based advertising. The tool itself is a cookie-free domain and does not collect personal data. Rather, the tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. If you have deactivated at the domain or cookie level, this remains for all tracking tags that are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

By using our website, you consent to the processing of your data in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
You have the option of preventing your data from being evaluated by Google Analytics. If you wish to do so, please follow this link, which you can use to download and install a browser plug-in. Further information on data protection at Google can be found here.

For this purpose, usage, interest and relationship profiles could be created, e.g. For example, to evaluate the use of our website with regard to advertisements, to inform other users about your activities on our website and to provide other services related to the use of the social network.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers of the social networks as well as the related rights and setting options of the user to protect his privacy can be found in the data protection information of the respective provider.
