Google Analytics uses cookies that enable an analysis of your use of our website. The information collected by means of the cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

For Google Analytics, the anonymisation of IP addresses is activated by default. Due to IP anonymisation, your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. 

During your website visit, your user behaviour is recorded in the form of "events". Events can be:

  • First visit to the website 
  • Start of session 
  • Your "click path", interaction with the website 
  • Scrolls (whenever a user scrolls to the bottom of the page (90%))

5. Integration of social media services and other third-party content

This always requires that the third-party providers of this content are aware of the IP address of the user, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browser.
