Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, comcompile reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. In these purposes lies also our legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Section 15 (3) TMG or Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.B. user ID) or advertising IDs will be automatically deleted after 14 months.
