Use of Google Analytics
We also use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics is based on cookies and allows an analysis of website usage. As we have activated IP anonymisation for our website, the IP addresses that are automatically transmitted with the usage details are abbreviated by Google within the European Union or other contracting states of the European Economic Area before the data are forwarded to and stored in the USA. It is only in exceptional cases that IP addresses are transmitted first to a Google server in the USA, where they are shortened.
Acting on our behalf, Google uses the data to analyse the use of the website for us, to compile website activity reports, and to render further services relating to website and internet use. The above described IP anonymising procedure has been agreed between Google Inc. and the Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information and recognised as compliant with data protection requirements (see the press release on the HmbBfDI). You may prevent the storage of such cookies by adjusting your browser settings accordingly.
