4.5. Google Analytics: For the already mentioned analysis purposes, we use the analytical service Google Analytics of Google, LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This is a tool that provides us with information about the use of the website. For this purpose, we place cookies (for cookies cf. above) on your device that record your behaviour on our website and transmit them to Google. Google will use this information to compile aggregated evaluations of the use of our website. Google may also transfer this information to third parties when required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.
We have activated the IP anonymization of Google Analytics. Before the IP address is transmitted to Google’s servers in the US, it is shortened within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the EEA. This procedure makes the IP address untraceable. Only in exceptional cases the complete IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google.
Further Information about Google Analytics can be found under http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html.
4.7. Google YouTube: To provide illustrative examples of our product, we embed videos of YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a company belonging to Google. Once you visit a website which contains a YouTube video, YouTube will place cookies on your device. Through these cookies YouTube obtains the information about your visit to our websites and whether you watched the video. Please note that we embedded the videos with activated “enhanced data protection mode”. That means that YouTube will not share the information with other services of Google, particularly not with its advertising network DoubleClick. However, YouTube may also assign this information to your member account in case you are a member of YouTube and logged into your member account. You can prevent YouTube from assigning the information with your member account by logging off from your member account before visiting our website.

Besides that, we will share the information and data processed through cookies to our cooperation partners, in our case Google LLC who support us in presenting Google Maps and YouTube on our websites.

7. Are data transferred to recipients outside the European Union or outside the European Economic Area (EEA)?
We provide personal data to processors established in countries outside the EEA.
