For this purpose, data is exchanged between your browser and – in the case of Matomo – our server in Germany and – in the case of Google Analytics – Google in the USA. Further information on these web analysis tools can be found in sections 8 and 9.
    The legal basis for the use of cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in providing, improving and optimising our products and services.

    6. Use of the web analytics tool Google Analytics

    We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”). Google Analytics is used in the interest of optimizing our Website and tailoring it to meet specific needs. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
    Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the Website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this Website (including your anonymous IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
    Google is certified in accordance with the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
    Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online services by users, to compile reports on the activities of this online service and to provide other services relating to the use of this online service and the internet. Pseudonymized user profiles can be created from the processed data.
    We use Google Analytics only with activated IP anonymization. This means that Google shortens the IP address of the users in the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

    7. Online appearances in social media

    We operate online presences in social networks and platforms in order to communicate with active customers, interested parties and users and to inform them about our services. Access to the respective networks and platforms is subject to the general terms and conditions and data processing guidelines of the respective operators.
    Unless otherwise stated in our Privacy Policy, we process the data of users who communicate with us in social networks and platforms, e.g. write contributions in our profiles or send us messages.

    8. Integration of third-party services and content

    On the basis of our legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (e.g. economic operation of our Website, provision of interesting content or a professional and aesthetically pleasing appearance that facilitates the transfer of our content), we integrate services from third parties such as the integration of fonts or videos or social media plug-ins (hereinafter “content”).
    This means that these services use your IP address to send the relevant content to your browser. We take great care to integrate only content from providers who use your IP address only to deliver content, but are unable to control all processing activities within the technical systems and processes of those providers.
    It cannot be excluded that these providers use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also called “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. Pixel tags can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this Website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may contain technical information about the browser and operating system, referring Websites, visiting times and other information about the use of our online services and may be linked to such information from other sources.

    8.1. Google Fonts

    This page uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
    For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This enables Google to know that your IP address has been used to access our website. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
    If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.

    8.2 Google-Firebase

    We use the developer platform “Google Firebase” and its associated functions and services offered by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

    Google Firebase is a platform for developers of apps for mobile devices and websites. Google Firebase offers a variety of features that are presented on the following overview page: https://firebase.google.com/products/.

    The functions include the storage of apps including personal data of the application users, such as content created by them or information regarding their interaction with the apps (so-called “cloud computing”). Google Firebase also offers interfaces that allow interaction between the users of the app and other services, e.g. authentication using services such as Facebook, Twitter or an e-mail password combination.

    The analysis of user interactions can be carried out using the “Firebase Analytics” analysis service. Firebase Analytics is designed to capture how users interact with an app. This includes events such as the first opening of the app, uninstallation, update, crash or frequency of use of the app. The events can also be used to record other user interests, e.g. for certain functions of the applications or certain subject areas. This also allows user profiles to be created, which can be used, for example, as a basis for the presentation of advertising references tailored to users.

    Google Firebase and the personal user data processed by Google Firebase may also be used in conjunction with other Google services, such as Google Analytics and the Google marketing services and Google Analytics (in which case device-related information such as “Android Advertising ID” and “Advertising Identifier for iOS” is also processed to identify users’ mobile devices).

    If we ask the users for their consent (e.g. in the context of a cookie agreement), the legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a. GDPR. Otherwise, the personal data of the user will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) are processed.

    As far as data is processed in the USA, we point out that Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby assures compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
    Google’s privacy policy can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy. Further information on the use of data for marketing purposes by Google can be found on the overview page: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=en
