Analysis

Use of Google Analytics
We use the Google Analytics web analytics service provided by Google LLC on our website. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). If you are habitually resident in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is the controller of your data. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the Google affiliate responsible for processing your data and ensuring compliance with applicable data protection laws.
The data processing is for the purpose of analysing this website and its visitors and for marketing and advertising purposes. Google will use the information obtained on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The following information, among others, may be collected: IP address, date and time of page view, click path, information about the browser you are using and the device you are using, pages visited, referrer URL (website from which you accessed our website), location data, purchase activity. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.
Google Analytics uses technologies such as cookies, web storage in the browser and tracking pixels, which allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by this about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. There is no EU Commission adequacy decision for the USA. The data transfer is based, inter alia, on standard contractual clauses as appropriate safeguards for the protection of personal data, viewable at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks. Both Google and US government agencies have access to your data. Your information may be linked by Google to other information, such as your search history, personal accounts, usage data from other devices, and any other information Google may have about you.
IP anonymization is activated on this website. This means that your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
The use of cookies or comparable technologies is based on § 15 para. 3 P. 1 TMG. The processing of your personal data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO from our overriding legitimate interest in the needs-based and targeted design of the website.

Privacy policy on the use and application of YouTube

The controller has integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips for free and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also for free. YouTube allows the publication of all kinds of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.

The operating company of YouTube is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. Within the framework of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google receive information about which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the data subject is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognises which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting when a sub-page containing a YouTube video is called up. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the person concerned.

YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time as calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her YouTube account before accessing our website.

The privacy policy published by YouTube, which is available at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.
