Duration of storage

In this case, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of users will be shortened 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 the full IP address will be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

The IP address transmitted by the user's browser is not merged with other data from Google.

  1. Hotjar

For Hotjar Data protection and privacy is of fundamental importance. We never sell personal data and we strictly comply with the provisions of the European Data Protection Regulation ("DS Regulation") (in particular, but not limited to, Article 6(1)(b) to (f) and Article 28) and the laws of Malta, where Hotjar is established, and other applicable international data protection laws, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA") (collectively the "Applicable law“).

When you visit a website with active Hotjar services ("Hotjar active website"), the section Enduser of this privacy policy is valid for you.

  1. Integration of services and content of third parties

It may occur that contents or services of third-party providers, such as maps or fonts from other websites, are included in our online offer. The inclusion of content from third-party providers always requires that third-party providers perceive the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to the users’ browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. Furthermore, providers of third-party content can set their own cookies and process users’ data for their own purposes. In the process, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We do our best to use this content in a data-saving and data-avoiding manner as far as possible and select reliable third-party providers with regard to data security.

The following presentation provides an overview of third-party providers as well as their contents and links to their privacy statements, with further details on the processing of data and partly revocation possibilities (so-called opt-out):
