7) Web analysis service
11.1 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses small text files stored on your computer (“cookies”) to help us analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
This website uses Google Analytics exclusively with the “_anonymizeIp()” extension. This extension anonymises the IP address by shortening it and thus excludes any direct personal link to the user.
As a result of the extension, your IP address will be abbreviated by Google in the Member States of the European Union or in the countries that have signed the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases may the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then abbreviated there. In this case, the data will be processed in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) for our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour and for optimisation and marketing purposes.
Google will use this information on our behalf to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with further services related to website use. The anonymised IP address transmitted by your browser as part of the Google Analytics service will not be combined with any other data held by Google.
You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data about your use of the website (including your IP address) that is generated by the aforementioned cookie by installing the browser plug-in available under the following link
As an alternative to the browser plugin or for browsers on mobile devices, we invite you to click on the link below to set an opt-out cookie that will prevent any future data collection by Google Analytics (this opt-out cookie only works for this browser and only for this domain.

The retention period of personal data is determined by the applicable legal retention period (e.g. commercial and tax retention periods).
After the expiry of these periods, the corresponding data will be systematically and regularly deleted, provided that they are no longer necessary for the execution or initiation of the contract and/or that there is no longer a legitimate interest in their retention.
