This data is summarized in a user-ID and assigned to the respective end device of the website visitor. Furthermore, Google Analytics allows us to record your mouse and scroll movements and clicks, among other things. Google Analytics uses various modeling approaches to augment the collected data sets and uses machine learning technologies in data analysis.Google Analytics uses technologies that make the recognition of the user for the purpose of analyzing the user behavior patterns (e.g., cookies or device fingerprinting).

Contract data processing
We have executed a contract data processing agreement with Google and are implementing the stringent provisions of the German data protection agencies to the fullest when using Google Analytics.
b) Google reCaptcha
To ensure that actions are performed by a natural person and not a programmed bot, we use the reCaptcha service of Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”).

For this purpose, data is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there; it is not stored on our own server. By activating IP anonymization (done by manual adaptation) on our website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in certain exceptional cases is the complete IP address transmitted to the server in the USA. On our behalf, Google will use the information obtained to evaluate the use of these services and, if the data storage is deactivated, to store it for a maximum period of 14 months in accordance with the GDPR. The transmitted IP address of your browser is not merged with other Google data within the scope of reCaptcha.
