Opt-Out. You can prevent the collection of data through the cookie concerning your use of the Products (incl. your IP address) as well as its processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the following browser plug-in: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Anonymize IP. The Products use Google Analytics in conjunction with the option “_anonymizeIP()”. This means, IP addresses are processed in a shortened form in order to prevent transmission of any personal data. Any connection with a specific person is therefore precluded and personal data is immediately deleted.
Purpose. We use Google Analytics to analyze and constantly improve the use of our Products. Through the statistics we are able to improve our services and make them more interesting for users. In those special cases, in which personal data is transmitted to the USA, Google is certified via EU-US privacy shield. The basis for the processing of Data are our legitimate interests.
Further Processing. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically connects with the Google server. We do not have any influence on the extent and the further processing of your data and can only inform you to the best of our knowledge: by integrating DFP, Google receives the information that you have accessed a site or clicked on an advertisement. Should you be registered with a Google service, Google can match this information with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or are not logged in, it is possible that the provider finds out your IP address and saves it.
Opt-Out. You can prevent your participation in this tracking mechanism in a couple of ways: (a) by changing your browser settings, especially by disabling third-party cookies; (b) by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking by configuring your browser in a way that cookies from the domain googleadservices.com are blocked (this preference will be deleted if you delete your cookies); (c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the sellers that are part of the “about Ads” campaign under http://www.aboutads.info/choices (this preference will be deleted if you delete your cookies); or (d) by generally deactivating cookies.
