On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to evaluate your usage of the website, to compile reports on the website activities, and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the usage of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

On our website, we use the Google Ads service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Each Google Ads customer is assigned a different cookie. Therefore, it is not possible to track cookies via the websites of Google Ads customers. We do not collect and process any personal data within the advertising measures mentioned. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. These evaluations enable us to identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account so that cross-device tracking is possible. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will identify and save your IP address.
