Embedded content from other websites

For the needs-oriented design and ongoing optimisation of our web pages, on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR (legitimate interest) we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”).
We use Google Analytics only with IP anonymisation activated.

Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
