This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is normally transmitted and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case IP-anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within the area of the EU member states or other countries of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the whole IP address will be first transfered to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing them other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
The IP-address, that your Browser conveys within the scope of Google Analytics, will not be associated with any other data held by Google.
You can also opt-out from being tracked by Google Analytics with effect for the future by downloading and installing Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Addon for your current web browser: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp ()". Therefore IP addresses are only prodessed in a truncated version in order to eliminate direct reference to persons.

Social media plugins
Instead of the usual social media plugins we use the "Shariff" buttons on our website. “Shariff” allows more privacy on the Net and replaces the usual share buttons of social networks. "Shariff" ensures that no personal data is automatically passed on to the providers of social plugins when you visit the website. Only when you click on one of the share buttons, data can be transmitted to the service provider. More information about the Shariff project can be found here (in german).
