Use of Google Analytics 4
We use the Google Analytics web analytics service provided by Google Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; “Google”) on our website.
The data processing serves the purpose of analyzing this website and its visitors as well as for marketing and advertising purposes. To this end, Google will use the information obtained on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. In this context, the following information may be collected, among others: IP address, date and time of page view, click path, information about the browser you are using and the device you are using (device), pages visited, referrer URL (website from which you accessed our website), location data, purchase activity. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. Google uses technologies such as cookies, web storage in the browser and tracking pixels that enable an analysis of your use of the website.
The information generated by this about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. There is no adequacy decision of the EU Commission for the USA. The data transfer takes place, among other things, on the basis of standard contractual clauses as appropriate guarantees for the protection of personal data, viewable at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks. Both Google and US government agencies have access to your data. Your data may be linked by Google to other data, such as your search history, your personal accounts, your usage data from other devices, and any other data Google may have about you.
When using Google Analytics 4, the IP address transmitted by your website is automatically collected and processed in anonymized form. The IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The processing of your personal data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR due to our overriding legitimate interest in the needs-based and targeted design of the website.
We also use the Google Signals service in this context. Google Signals enables cross-device tracking. Hence, your data can be analysed across devices if you have enabeled “personalised advertising” in your account settings and your end devices are linked to your Google account. This makes it possible to identify which device is searching for products and then return to complete purchases on another device, such as a tablet.The cross-device reports created in this context contain only aggregated data. We therefore only receive statistics generated on the basis of Google Signals. To prevent Google Signals from collecting and storing data across devices, you can deactivate the “personalised advertising” function in your Google Account settings. For more information, please visit https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de. For more information on data processing and data protection for Google Signals, please visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7532985?hl=en.
