When our website is used, certain data, in particular your IP address and your user activities, are transmitted to servers of Google LLC and processed and stored outside the European Union, e.g. in the USA.
The European Commission has found that an adequate level of data protection can exist in the USA if the data processing company is a signatory to the EU-US Privacy Shield and the export of data to the USA has in this way been made permissible. If IP anonymization is enabled in the Google Analytics tracking code of this website, your IP address is made anonymous by Google Analytics before transmission. This website uses a Google Analytics tracking code modified by the operator gat._anonymizeIp(); in order to only allow an anonymized collection of IP addresses, a technique known as IP masking.
