Using Google analytics

The website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (hereinafter: Google). Google analytics uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files that are saved on your computer and analyse the way you use the website. The information created by the cookie about the use of this website is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the enabling of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address is first of all abbreviated in the European member states or in other states that are party to the Treaty on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports on website activities and to provide services associated with website use or Internet use for the website operator. The IP address sent by your browser as part of Google analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

You can prevent saving cookies by selecting a corresponding setting in your browser software but we would point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website completely. In addition you can prevent Google capturing the recording of data created by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: Browser-Add-on zur Deaktivierung von Google Analytics.

This will prevent Google analytics from recording for this website and for this browser in future so long as the cookie remains installed on your browser.

Embedded You Tube videos

We embed You Tube videos on some of our websites. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a site with the You Tube plugin, a connection is established to the You Tube servers. Here You Tube is informed which sites you are visiting. When you have logged into your You Tube account, You Tube can allocate you your personal surfing behaviour. You prevent this by logging out of your You Tube account first.

If a You Tube video starts, the supplier uses cookies to collect information on the user’s behaviour.

If you disable storing cookies for the Google ad program, you don’t have to reckon with such cookies when watching You Tube videos. However, You Tube stores non-personal use information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this you must block the saving of cookies in the browser.

You will find further information on data protection at You Tube in the supplier’s data protection statement at:

If you don’t want to take part in tracking, you can refuse to set the cookies required for it – perhaps by a browser setting that normally disables the automatic setting of cookies or set your browser in such a way that cookies from the “” domain are blocked.

Please note that you mustn’t delete the opt out cookies if you don’t want measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the relevant opt out cookie again.
