6. Web analysis/social media services
In part, we use Google Analytics on our websites, a web analysis service by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and which allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. Google uses this information in order to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities for the website operator, and to provide further services connected with the use of the website and the use of the internet.
Google may also forward this information onto third parties, in as far as this is a legal requirement or in as far as third parties are processing such data on behalf of Google. Google does not, however, connect your IP address with other Google data under any circumstances. You can prevent the installation of cookies by changing your browser software settings; we must, however, point out that if you do so you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. By visiting the website you are giving your consent to the data collected about you by Google being processed in the aforementioned way and for the aforementioned purpose. As part of our commitment to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we have adjusted the Google Analytics data retention controls, so that visitor data such as cookies are only retained for the minimum period and are afterwards deleted.
So-called social media services have been integrated into our website. These enable you to recommend content on our website to others. These are solely integrated on our website in the form of links to the respective social media service. After clicking on the integrated icon, you will be transferred to the respective provider, i.e. only then will user information be transmitted to the respective provider. Information about how your personal data is handled when using their websites can be found in the respective data protection declaration of the individual provider.
We do not assume any responsibility or liability for the offers of third-party web sites. However, we will do our best to ensure that our partners observe data protection policies similar to ours.

11. Right to information
