Who we share your data with
We use Google Analytics (with anonymisation function) on this web site. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the gathering, collection and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to web sites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which web site a data subject has come to a web site from (so-called referrers), which subpages of the web site were accessed or how often and for which period of time a subpage was viewed. Web analysis is mainly used to optimise a web site and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
As IP address anonymisation is activated on our web site, your IP address will be shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or other states in agreement with the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to and shortened by a Google server in the USA. On behalf of the operator of the web site, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the web site, compile reports on website activity and to provide further services related to web site and internet use to us. The IP address transferred through your browser to Google Analytics will not be combined with other data held by Google.
In addition, this web site uses the Analytics feature UserID to track interaction data. This User ID will be additionally anonymised and encrypted and will not be linked with other data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible.
In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Web site administrators can also see and edit that information.
