1.2.1 Google Analytics

On our websites we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookies about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with further services connected with the use of this online offer. Pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.

We use Google Analytics only with the enabled IP anonymization configuration (“gat._anonymizeIp();”) to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking). This means that your IP address will be anonymized by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser is not merged with other Google data.

You can prevent Google from collecting and using your data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
