Important notice regarding data processing in connection with Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the body responsible for processing the data collected by this website is based outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland, then the processing of data associated with Google Analytics will be carried out by Google LLC (based in the USA). Google Ireland Limited and Google LLC are hereinafter referred to as “Google”.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on the visitor’s computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie (including the truncated IP address) about the use of the website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google.

Google Analytics is used exclusively with the “_anonymizeIp ()” extension on this website. The extension ensures that the IP address is anonymised by truncation and thus excludes any direct personal reference. With this extension, Google truncates the IP address of visitors to this website who are located in a Member State of the European Union or in another state that is party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address of the website visitor will only be transmitted to Google’s servers and truncated in the USA in exceptional cases. The IP address, which is provided by the browser of the website visitor using Google Analytics, will not be combined by Google with other Google data.

On behalf of the website operator, Google will use the collected information to evaluate the use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide other website and internet related services to the website operator (art. 6, 1. f, GDPR). The legitimate interest in the processing of data lies in the optimisation of this website, the analysis of the use of the website and the adaptation of the content. The interest of the users is adequately protected by the pseudonymisation of their data.

Google LLC guarantees an adequate level of data protection on the basis of European standard contractual clauses. The data sent and linked to Google Analytics cookies, such as user IDs or advertising IDs, will be automatically deleted after 50 months. The deletion of data that has reached the retention period is carried out automatically once a month.

The website visitor can refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in the browser. The website visitor can also prevent Google from collecting information (including IP address) via cookies and from processing this information by downloading and installing this plug-in in his browser:

We use the reCAPTCHA service from Google LLC (Google) to protect form entries on your site. This service is used to differentiate between human input and automated abuse. This involves sending the IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service. For this purpose, your data will be passed on to Google and used by their services. However, your IP address will first be shortened by Google in the Member States of the European Union – or in other countries which are part of the Agreement on the European Economic Area – and thus anonymised. In exceptional cases, your full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then shortened. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address provided by reCAPTCHA through your browser will not be merged with other Google data. This data collection is subject to Google’s Privacy Policy.

By using the reCAPTCHA service, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
