(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files that are saved on your computer and make it possible to analyse the way in which the website is used. The data the cookie generates on your usage of the website are usually forwarded to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, Google will, however, first truncate your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in cases of exception is the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website for compiling reports on website activities on behalf of this website's operator and for providing the website operator with further services associated with the use of the website and of the Internet.
(2) The IP address sent by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not linked with other Google data.
(3) You can set your browser software to prevent cookies from being stored; we do, however, point out that you may then not be able to use all of the functions available on this website. If you download and install the browser plug-in available via the following link, you can prevent the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being forwarded to and processed by Google: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This means IP addresses continue to be processed in shortened form, ruling out the possibility of tracing them back to any specific person. If the data collected about you become personally identifiable, such is therefore immediately ruled out and these personal data are deleted straight away.
(5) We use Google Analytics to analyse the usage of our website and enhance it at regular intervals. The statistics gathered enable us to improve the services we offer and make them more interesting to you as a user. For those exceptional cases in which personal data are transferred to the USA, Google has committed itself to EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

This means that when you visit our site, no personal data are ever passed on to the providers of plug-ins. You can identify the plug-in provider by the mark on the box above its initial letter or by the logo. We provide you with the capability of communicating directly with the plug-in provider via the button. Only if you click the marked box to activate it will the plug-in provider be informed that you have opened the particular website of our online offering. The data specified in Section 3 of this statement are also transferred. In the case of Facebook and Xing, the IP address is immediately anonymised in Germany as soon as it is collected, this being done in accordance with the information given by each provider. Therefore, activating the plug-in communicates personal data from you to the respective plug-in provider where they are stored (in the case of US providers, in the USA). As the plug-in provider primarily collects data via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking the greyed-out box via your browser's security settings.
(2) We do not have any influence on the data collected and data-processing operations nor are we familiar with the full scope of data collected, the purposes for which they are processed and the period for which they are stored. We do not obtain any information either on any collected data deleted by the plug-in provider.
The plug-in provider saves the data collected about you as user profiles and uses such for purposes of advertising, market research and/or structuring its website to suit needs. An evaluation of this type takes place in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for displaying demand-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to these user profiles being formed whereby to exercise this right you must contact the respective plug-in provider. The plug-ins give you the capability of interacting with the social networks and other users and let us improve the services we offer and make them more interesting to you as a user. Legal basis for using plug-in is Art. 6 (1), sentence 1 f) of the GDPR.
(4) Data are passed on irrespectively of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. When you are logged in to the plug-in provider, the data we have collected about you are matched up directly to the account you have with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button and, for example link the page, the plug-in provider stores this information as well in your user account and publicly communicates it to your contacts. We recommend that you regularly log out after using a social network, in particular, however, before activating the button as this enables you to prevent any association with your profile at the plug-in provider.
