This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Use includes the Universal Analytic mode. This enables data, sessions, and interactions to be assigned to a pseudonym user ID applicable to multiple devices so that the activities of a user can be analyzed across devices. This data protection note is provided by www.intersoft-consulting.de
Google Analytics uses so-called Cookies, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable analysis of your use of the website. The information about use of this website generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address is first truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or other treaty states of the European Economic Area agreement. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a server in the USA by Google and truncated there. The IP address communicated by your browser under Google Analytics is not combined with other data by Google. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide other services to the operator of the website relating to use of the website and use of the Internet. These purposes are our legitimate interest in processing the data. The legal basis for us of Google Analytics is § 15 Sec. 3 TMG or Art. 6 Sec. 1 lit. f GDPR. The data transmitted by us and associated with cookies, user identifiers (e.g. user IDs) or advertising IDs are automatically erased after 14 months. Erasure of data, the retention period of which has elapsed, is performed automatically once per month.

On our websites, social plugins of the providers stated below are used. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are labeled with the logo of the provider. Via these plugins, information, which may include personal data, may be transmitted to the service provider and used by that provider. We prevent undisclosed and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider with a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking the relevant button. Collection of information and transmission thereof to the service provider is not initiated until the plugin has been activated in this way. We ourselves do not collect personal data by means of social plugins or use thereof.
We have no influence on which data an activated plugin collects and how these data are used by the provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the services of the provider is made and that at least the IP address and device-related information are collected and used. It is also possible that service providers may attempt to store cookies on the computer used. You can read the specific data that are collected and how these are used in the data protection information of each service provider.

This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests, which predominate in the context of a weighing up of interests, in the optimal marketing of our website in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. The information automatically generated by the cookie about visiting this website is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The IP address is shortened by activating the IP anonymization on this website prior to transmission within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The anonymized IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Google will use this information to compile reports on website activity and to provide other website-related services. This serves to safeguard our legitimate interests, which predominate in the context of a weighing up of interests, for an optimal marketing of our website. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or as far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. After the expiration of the purpose and end of the use of Google DoubleClick by us, the data collected in this context will be deleted.
