Google Analytics for web analysis
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
In order to ensure sufficient data security when submitting the contact form, we use the reCAPTCHA service of Google Inc. in certain cases. This is primarily used to distinguish whether the input is made by a natural person or improperly by machine and automated processing. The service includes the sending of the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. The deviating data protection provisions of Google Inc. apply here.
We take technical and organizational measures to ensure the security of your personal data. Your data is protected against loss, destruction, falsification, manipulation and unauthorized access.
