Furthermore, we use persistent cookies to improve the user friendliness of our website. Persistent cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser for a much longer period. This time-period will depend on the choice you make in the settings of your internet browser. Persistent cookies allow information to be passed to a web server each time someone visits the site. We use persistent cookies to remember your preferences and various settings.
The data processed by cookies is required for the aforementioned purposes in order to protect our legitimate interests and interests of third parties pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Our website uses the web analytics service Google Analytics of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the traffic (including IP addresses) on our website by Google in the USA.
For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure the anonymized collection of IP addresses (IP-masking). By means of this application the IP address of the internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a member state of the European Union or another contracting state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thereby does not permit any conclusion about your identity.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to one of Google's servers in the USA and shortened there. Google observes the Swiss-USA Privacy Shield framework and thereby has the required level of data protection.
Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our website for us.
For more information about the web analytics service used, please visit the Google website at https://policies.google.com/ or https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de. For an introduction to how you can prevent your data from being processed by the Google Analytics, please visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=enLink.
Furthermore using tracking methods, we want to ensure a customised design and the continuous improvement of our website. Moreover, we use tracking measures to statistically record and analyse the use of our website for the purpose of optimizing our service for you. By using targeted advertising, we want to ensure, that you receive targeted advertisements only.
We use Google Analytics to safeguard our legitimate interests according to art. 13 FADP and art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
We use plugins of social networks and platforms on our website.
We would like to point out that user data can be processed outside the European Union and/or Switzerland. This can pose risks for users because, for example, the enforcement of user rights could be made more difficult.
Furthermore, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, user profiles can be created from the user behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user's computer, in which the user's usage behavior and interests are stored. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to these). The responsibility for the compliance of the data processing on those platforms with the respective data protection laws bears the respective social network or platform. Your use of the plugins shall be deemed your acceptance of the corresponding data processing.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the information provided by the providers linked below.
Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for our aforementioned processing operations. Our legitimate interest lies in providing our services.
