7. Google Analytics
For the purpose of designing our pages to meet your needs and continuously optimising them, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. https://www. google.de/intl/de/about/ (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see under point 5) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

It is only in exceptional cases that the full IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

(a) of the GDPR. We would like to point out that according to the case law of the European Court of Justice in the USA; there is currently no level of data protection comparable to the EU standard. Thus, there is a risk that your data will be processed by authorities for control and monitoring purposes after transfer to the USA, contrary to the GDPR requirements, without you being entitled to legal protection.
