7) Web Analytics Services
Google (Universal) Analytics
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). Google (Universal) Analytics uses so-called "cookies", which are text files that are stored on your end device and that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including the abbreviated IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there. It can also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. come in the US.
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics exclusively with the "_anonymizeIp()" extension, which ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening it and excludes direct personal reference. As a result of the extension, 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 sent to a Google LLC 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 us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google (Universal) Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
Google Analytics enables a special function, the so-called "demographic characteristics", to also generate statistics with statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors based on an evaluation of interest-based advertising and using third-party information. This allows the definition and differentiation of user groups of the website for the purpose of target group-optimized alignment of marketing measures. However, data records collected via the "demographic characteristics" cannot be assigned to a specific person.
Details on the processing initiated by Google Analytics and how Google handles data from websites can be found here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites
All of the processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics cookies for reading information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. Without this consent, Google Analytics will not be used during your visit to the site.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website. We have concluded an order processing contract with Google for the use of Google Analytics, which obliges Google to protect the data of our site visitors and not to pass it on to third parties.

8) Site Functionalities
Instagram plugin as a Shariff solution
Our website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) from the online service Instagram, which is operated by Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland (“Facebook”).
In order to increase the protection of your data when you visit our website, these buttons are not fully integrated as plugins, but only integrated into the page using an HTML link. This type of integration ensures that when you visit a page on our website that contains such buttons, no connection to the Instagram servers is established. If you click on the button, a new browser window opens and calls up the Instagram page, on which you can interact with the plugins there (possibly after entering your login data).
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Instagram as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy can be found in Instagram's data protection information: https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388/
