The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
We have activated IP anonymization on this website, so your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. Our legitimate interest in the data processing lies in these purposes.
The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google 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.

Our website uses the counting pixel technology of WiredMinds GmbH (www.wiredminds.de) to analyze visitor behavior.
If necessary, data is collected, processed and stored, from which user profiles are created under a pseudonym. Wherever possible and meaningful, these usage profiles are completely anonymised. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the user’s Internet browser and serve to recognize the Internet browser. The collected data, which may also contain personal data, will be transmitted to WiredMinds or collected directly by WiredMinds. WiredMinds may use information that is left by visiting the websites to create anonymised usage profiles. The data obtained without the separately granted consent of the person concerned will not be used to personally identify the visitor to this website and they will not be merged with personal data of the bearer of the pseudonym. As far as IP addresses are recorded, their immediate anonymization takes place by deleting the last number block.
