Statistical analysis of the use of the website and increase in reach

The information obtained as part of the statistical analysis of our website will not be merged with your other data collected as part of the website.
Google Analytics is a web analysis service provided by Google LLC. Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help you analyze how you use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, by activating IP anonymisation on our website, 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 will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
On our website we use Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". As a result, IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, so that a direct personal reference can be excluded.
