Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.
For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.
Data Used: Please refer to the appropriate Google Analytics documentation for the specific type of data it collects. Google Analytics does offer IP anonymization, which can be enabled by the site owner.
Activity Tracked: This feature sends page view events (and potentially video play events) over to Google Analytics for consumption.
This feature is only accessible to users logged in to WordPress.com.
Data Used: In order to process a post like action, the following information is used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID, WordPress.com username, WordPress.com-connected site ID (on which the post was liked), post ID (of the post that was liked), user agent, timestamp of event, browser language, country code.
Activity Tracked: Post likes.
Data Used: To initiate and process subscriptions, the following information is used: subscriber’s email address and the ID of the post or comment (depending on the specific subscription being processed). In the event of a new subscription being initiated, we also collect some basic server data, including all of the subscribing user’s HTTP request headers, the IP address from which the subscribing user is viewing the page, and the URI which was given in order to access the page (
DOCUMENT_URI). This server data used for the exclusive purpose of monitoring and preventing abuse and spam.
Activity Tracked: Functionality cookies are set for a duration of 347 days to remember a visitor’s blog and post subscription choices if, in fact, they have an active subscription.
Data Used: IP address, WordPress.com user ID (if logged in), WordPress.com username (if logged in), user agent, visiting URL, referring URL, timestamp of event, browser language, country code. Important: The site owner does not have access to any of this information via this feature. For example, a site owner can see that a specific post has 285 views, but he/she cannot see which specific users/accounts viewed that post. Stats logs — containing visitor IP addresses and WordPress.com usernames (if available) — are retained by Automattic for 28 days and are used for the sole purpose of powering this feature.
The controller has integrated Jetpack on this website. Jetpack is a WordPress plug-in, which offers additional functions to the operator of a website that builds on WordPress. Among other things, Jetpack allows the website operator an overview of the visitors to the site. By displaying related contributions and publications or the ability to share content on the site, it is also possible to increase visitor numbers. In addition, security features are integrated into Jetpack so that a Jetpack-using website is better protected against brute-force attacks. Jetpack also optimizes and speeds up the loading of images built into the website.
The use is based on our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DGSVO.
The operating company of the Jetpack plug-in for WordPress is Automattic Inc., 132 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. The operating company uses the tracking technology of Quantcast Inc., 201 Third Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.
Jetpack places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. Each time one of the pages of this website is accessed by the controller and a Jetpack component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Jetpack component for analysis purposes to submit to Automattic. As part of this technical process, Automattic receives information about data that will subsequently be used to compile an overview of the website visits. The data obtained is used to analyze the behavior of the data subject who accessed the controller’s website and is evaluated with the aim of optimizing the website. The data collected through the Jetpack component will not be used to identify the data subject without first obtaining the specific prior consent of the data subject. The data will also be reported to Quantcast. Quantcast uses the data for the same purposes as Automattic.
The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Automattic / Quantcast from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already set by Automattic can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing detection of the data generated by the Jetpack cookie relating to the use of this website as well as the processing of this data by Automattic / Quantcast. For this, the person concerned must press the opt-out button under the link https://www.quantcast.com/opt-out/, which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set against the objection will be placed on the information technology system used by the data subject. If the cookies on the affected person’s system are deleted after an appeal, the data subject must revisit the link and set a new opt-out cookie.
By setting the opt-out cookie, however, it is possible that the website of the controller for the data subject is no longer fully usable.

Data protection provisions about the application and use of Mailchimp
On this website, the controller has integrated components of Mailchimp. MailChimp is an online marketing platform (the “Services”) operated by The Rocket Science Group LLC, a company headquartered in the State of Georgia in the United States (Mailchimp, MailChimp, Services).
The Services enables Mailchimp’s Members to, among other things, send and manage email campaigns and serve advertisements. Mailchimp also provides other related services, such as real-time data analytics. Find out more about Maichimp’s Services here.(https://www.mailchimp.com/)
The operating company of Mailchimp is
The Rocket Science Group LLC d/b/a MailChimp,
675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE,
Atlanta, GA 30308 USA
“Contact” is a person a Member may contact through Mailchimp’s Services. In other words, a Contact is anyone on a Member’s Distribution List or about whom a Member has given Maichimp information. For example, if you are a Member, a subscriber to your email marketing campaigns would be considered a Contact.
“Distribution List” is a list of Contacts a Member may upload or manage on Mailchimp’s platform and all associated information related to those Contacts (for example, email addresses).
“Member” means any person or entity that is registered with Mailchimp to use the Services.
“Personal Information” means any information that identifies or can be used to identify a Member, a Contact, or a Visitor, directly or indirectly. Examples of Personal Information include, but are not limited to, first and last name, date of birth, email address, gender, occupation, or other demographic information.
“Visitor” means any person who visits any of Mailchimp’s Websites.
The Personal Information that Mailchimp may collect or receive about you broadly falls into the following categories:
(i) Information Mailchimp receives about Contacts from its Members: A Member may provide Personal Information about a contact to Mailchimp through the Services. For example, when a Member uploads their Distribution List or integrates the Services with another website or service (for example, when a Member chooses to connect their e-commerce account with MailChimp), or when a contact signs up for a Member’s Distribution List on a MailChimp signup form, they may provide Mailchimp with certain contact information or other Personal Information about you such as the contacts name, email address, address or telephone number. A contact may have the opportunity to update some of this information by electing to update or manage their preferences via an email a contact receives from a Member.
Device information: Mailchimp collects information about the device and applications a Contact or Visitor uses to access emails sent through Mailchimp’s Services, such as a Contact or Visitor’s IP address, operating system, browser ID, and other information about a a Contact or Visitor’s system and connection.
Product usage data: Maichimp collects usage data about a Contact or Visitor whenever a Contact or Visitor interacts with emails sent through the Services, which may include dates and times of a Contact or Visitor access emails and their browsing activities (such as what pages are viewed). Mailchimp also collects information regarding the performance of the Services, including metrics related to the deliverability of emails and other electronic communications our Members send through the Services. This information allows Mailchimp to improve the content and operation of the Services, and facilitate research and analysis of the Services.
(iii) Information Mailchimp collects from other sources: From time to time, Mailchimp may obtain information about a Contact or Visitor from third-party sources, such as social media platforms and third-party data providers. Mailchimp take steps to ensure that such third parties are legally or contractually permitted to disclose such information to us, and Mailchimp use this information to provide publicly available social media information about you to Members who have enabled the “Social Profiles” feature in their MailChimp accounts.
Cookies and Tracking Technologies
Mailchimp and Mailchimp’s partners may use various technologies to collect and store information when a Contact interacts with a Member’s email campaign or connected store, and this may include using cookies and similar tracking technologies, such as pixels and web beacons. For example, Mailchimp uses web beacons in the emails Mailchimps sends on behalf of their Members. When a Contact receives and engages with a Member’s campaign, web beacons track certain behavior such as whether the email sent through the MailChimp platform was delivered and opened and whether links within the email were clicked. They also allow Mailchimp to collect information such as Contact’s IP address, browser, email client type, and other similar details. Mailchimp use this information to measure the performance of their Members’ email campaigns, and to provide analytics information and enhance the effectiveness of Mailchimp Services.
Contact or Visitor Choices and Opt-Outs
Contacts and Visitors who have opted in to Mailchimp marketing emails can opt out of receiving marketing emails from Mailchimp at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of Mailchimp’s marketing messages.
Mailchimp operates in the United States
Mailchimp’s servers and offices are located in the United States, so Contact’s and Visitor’s information may be transferred to, stored, or processed in the United States. While the data protection, privacy, and other laws of the United States might not be as comprehensive as those in Contact’s and Visitor’s country, Mailchimp take many steps to protect Contact’s and Visitor’s privacy, including offering our Members a data processing agreement.
(ii) Data transfers from Switzerland or the EU to the United States
MailChimp participates in and has certified its compliance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. Mailchimp is committed to subjecting all Personal Information received from European Union (EU) member countries and Switzerland, respectively, in reliance on each Privacy Shield Framework, to each Framework’s applicable Principles.
