11. Google Analytics
This website uses functionality provided by the web analysis service, Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files stored on your computer which allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information obtained via cookies about your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored.
We have enabled the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that, within the EU member states or in other states which are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area, Google will truncate your IP address before it is transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to perform other services for the website operator relating to website and internet use. The IP address which is transmitted by your browser as part of the Google Analytics process will not be collated with other data from Google.
You can configure your browser software to prevent cookies from being saved; however, you must be aware that, if you do this, you may potentially be unable to use the full functionality provided by this website. In addition, you can prevent Google from capturing data (incl. your IP address) created by the cookie relating to your use of the website, and you may prevent Google from processing this data. This is achieved by downloading and installing the browser plugin provided under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Objecting to data collection
You can prevent your data from being captured by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be placed on your computer which prevents your data being captured on subsequent visits to this website: disable Google Analytics. More information on how Google Analytics handles user data can be found in Google’s data protection statement: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.
Outsourced data processing
We have agreed a contract with Google relating to outsourced data processing and we will implement in full the guidelines from the German data protection authorities in our use of Google Analytics.

13. SSL encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential information (for example, in queries which you send to us as the website operator), this site uses SSL encryption. You can tell there is an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line in your browser switches from "http://" to "https://" and by the appearance of a lock symbol in the address bar.
If SSL encryption is enabled, you can transmit data to us without it being read by third parties.
Our homepage contains links to other websites. We have no influence when it comes to the operators of these sites complying with data protection provisions. Please refer to the liability disclaimer.
