6. Online Marketing / Analysis Tools
The tracking measures we use are based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, § 15 para. 3 TMG. With the tracking measures to be used, we want to ensure a needs-based design and the continuous optimization of our website. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and for the purpose of evaluating and optimizing our Internet presence. These interests are to be regarded as justified within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.
For the purpose of customizing and continually optimizing our web pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.com/intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereafter “Google”). In this context, pseudonymised usage profiles are created and cookies are set (see also point 5). The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as browser type / version, operating system used, referrer URL (the previously visited page), host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and the time of the server request are sent to one Transfer server from Google in the US and store it there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage for the purposes of market research and tailor-made website design. In these purposes, our legitimate interest lies in the data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Article 15 (3) TMG in conjunction with Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

However, they do not receive any information that personally identifies users. In these purposes, our legitimate interest lies in the data processing.
