6. GOOGLE ANALYTICS
If you have given your consent, we also use the web analysis service Google Analytics, a service provided by Google, to regularly analyze and improve our website (for more information on Google Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001 (“Google”).
. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are saved on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The recipient of the data collected is Google. If IP anonymization is activated on the website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and only be shortened there. We, but also Google, used this information to evaluate your use of the website and to compile reports on website activity. Google also uses the information to provide us with other services generally related to the use of the website and your internet use.
The data will be deleted after 14 months.
We use Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIp ()” on our website. As a result, IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, so that personal references can be excluded.
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by preventing the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. To prevent Google Analytics from collecting data across different devices, you must opt-out on all devices.
Note on the processing of your data collected on this website by Google in the USA:
By consenting to the use of the respective Google services, you also consent to your data being processed in the USA. The USA is rated by the European Court of Justice as a country with an insufficient level of data protection according to EU standards. With these transmissions, Google relies on the standard contractual clauses published by the EU Commission in order to establish an appropriate level of protection for personal data in the USA that is comparable to that of the EU. Nevertheless, there is a particular risk that your data may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes, possibly without the possibility of legal redress. If you have not consented to the use of these Google services, the transmission described above will not take place.
7. Use of Vimeo
We also use videos from the global company Vimeo on our website, a video platform that enables the streaming of high-resolution videos. The video portal is operated by Vimeo.com Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.
With the help of a plug-in, we can show you interesting video material directly on our website. Certain data can be transferred from you to Vimeo. Vimeo offers us the opportunity to present you with high-quality content directly on our website. Instead of just giving you a link to an interesting video, you can watch the video right away with us. This expands our services and makes it easier for you to access interesting video content in addition to our texts and images.
If you call up a subpage on our website that has an embedded Vimeo video, your browser connects to the Vimeo servers. Data is collected, stored and processed on the Vimeo servers, regardless of whether you have a Vimeo account or not. This data includes
- your IP address,
- technical information about your browser type,
- Your operating system or very basic device information,
- via which website you use the Vimeo service,
- what actions (web activities) you perform on our website.
These web activities include, for example
- Session duration,
- bounce rate,
- Which button you clicked on on our website with the built-in Vimeo function.
Vimeo can track and store these actions using cookies and similar technologies. As a registered and logged-in Vimeo member, additional data can be collected and your actions on our website linked directly to your Vimeo account. To prevent this, you must log out of Vimeo while “surfing” on our website. Storage on Vimeo takes place as long as Vimeo has an economic reason for storage. The data is then deleted or made anonymous.
The legal basis for the transmission of your data to Vimeo is your consent in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. In addition, you always have the possibility to manage cookies in your browser according to your wishes. You can change the collection and storage of your data and the setting of Vimeo cookies in your browser settings and delete or deactivate cookies at any time. Please note that after deactivating/deleting cookies, various functions may no longer be fully available. If you are a registered Vimeo member, you can also manage the cookies used in the Vimeo settings.
Note on the processing of your data collected on this website by Vimeo in the USA:
By agreeing to the use of Vimeo, your data will be processed in the USA. The USA is rated by the European Court of Justice as a country with an insufficient level of data protection according to EU standards. In particular, there is a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes, possibly without the possibility of legal remedies.
