Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

Google ReCaptcha:

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereafter “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

ReCAPTCHA is designed to verify that data entry on our websites (for example, at registration or in a contact form) is done by a human user and not by an automated program. Therefore, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the website is loaded. reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (for example, the IP address, the website visitor’s visit time on the website, or the user mouse movements). The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google. reCAPTCHA analyzes are performed completely in the background. Site visitors are not advised that an analysis is already taking place.

Data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. of the EU data protection regulation. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its websites from abusive automated spying and spamming.
