5.4 Analytics Tools

Google Analytics

On our website we use the tool “Google Analytics” which is provided by Google Ireland Limited (Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland).

To safeguard this data processing, we have entered into a data processing agreement with Google. This includes Google LLC (formerly Google Inc.), Google Ireland Limited and all companies affiliated with Google LLC.

The locations of Google’s data centers can be viewed here: https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/index.html

A transfer of data to third countries outside the EU or Switzerland is based on standard contractual clauses. With Google Analytics we collect information about the visitors of our website to show them relevant offers. Our interest lies in the optimization of our website.

Google Analytics collects cookies, device or browser data, IP addresses and website or app activities. This is used to measure user interactions on the websites and apps that use Google Analytics and to generate reports on these. In particular, page impressions, clicks on external links, website searches and file downloads are measured.

We have enabled the IP Anonymization feature, which ensures that your IP address is anonymized. Google uses so-called IP masks for this purpose. Before the anonymization, Google collects the country and city data using the IP. At no time do we have access to your IP address using Google Analytics.
