1. Google Analytics 360 
Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountainview, CA 94043 USA (“Google”) is used on this website. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files, which are stored on their computer, and which enable an analysis of your use of the website.

The information generated by these cookies, for example concerning time, place, and frequency of your use of this website, are as a rule transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and stored there. In using Google Analytics, it is not excluded that the cookies set by Google Analytics can also record additional personal data in addition to the IP address. We point out to you that Google possibly will transmit this information to third parties, if this is legally stipulated or insofar as third parties process these data on behalf of Google.

The information generated by cookies is used by Google on behalf of the operator of this website in order to evaluate your use of the website, in order to compile reports concerning the website activities, and to furnish the website operator with further data services connected with the website use and the internet use. The IP address transmitted from your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not transmitted by Google, according to Google’s own information, along with the other data from Google.

You can generally block storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we inform you that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website in their full scope.

It is not excluded that the cookies set by Google Analytics can record additional personal data in addition to the IP address. In order to prevent information concerning your use of the website from being recorded by Google Analytics and transmitted to Google Analytics, you can download and install a plug-in for your browser under the following link:

The use of the opt-out cookie is also possible as an alternative to the above plug-in in the case of using the browser on your computer.
