We collect, process and store the following data when this website or individual files on this website are called up: IP address, website from which the file was called up, file name, date and time of call, data volume transmitted and successful call-up report (known as a web log). We use these access data exclusively in non-personalised form to continually improve our Internet site and for statistical purposes. We also use the following plugins and active script content to analyse visits to this website:
• Google Analytics:
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses various techniques including cookies, which are stored on your computer and enable the use of this website by the user to be analysed. The information obtained by Google Analytics relating to your use of this website is transmitted to Google servers which may be operated in states outside the member states of the European Union and possibly also outside the contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. If IP anonymizing is enabled within this website’s Google Analytics tracking code, your IP address will be anonymized by Google before transmission. This website uses a Google Analytics tracking code with the operator gat._anonymizeIp(); extension to enable only anonymized capture of IP addresses (this is known as IP masking). Google will use this information to evaluate your visit to the website for compiling reports on website activities on behalf of this website’s operator and for providing the website operator with further services associated with the use of the website and of the Internet. The IP address sent by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be linked with other Google data. You can set your browser software to prevent the installation of Google cookies. However, we must point out that you may then not be able to use all of the functions available on this website. In addition, if you download and install the browser plugin available via the following link you can prevent the data generated by the Google cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) being forwarded to and processed by Google.

The translation into English has been prepared to the best of my knowledge. In case of doubt the German wording is legally binding.
That also applies to the jurisdictional venue.
