Therefore, as far as the data collected about you contains a personal reference, it is immediately excluded and the personal data deleted immediately. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website usage and internet usage to us Google may also transfer this information to third parties as required by law or if said third parties process this data on behalf of Google.The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google information.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) or (f) GDPR.
2.2.2. Google Ads (formerly Google Adwords)
We use the offer of Google Ads, in order to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising (so-called Google Ads) on external web pages. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. We are interested in showing you advertisements that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting to you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.
These advertising materials are supplied by Google via so-called “ad servers”. To do this, we use ad server cookies, from which certain performance metrics such as ads or user clicks can be measured. If you access our website through a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and should not serve to personally identify you. As a rule, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wants to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.
These cookies allow Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer may discover that the user clicked on the advertisement and was redirected to that page. Each Ads customer is assigned a different cookie. Thus cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Ads customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We receive only statistical evaluations provided by Google. On the basis of these evaluations, we can identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence over the scope of the data collected by the employment of this tool by Google and the further use of such data, and inform you therefore according to our level of knowledge: By including Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you have accessed the relevant part of our website or have clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a service provided by Google, Google may associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a chance that the provider will find out your IP address and store it.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR.
2.2.3 Google Remarketing
In addition to Ads Conversion, we use the Google remarketing application, which enables you to see our ads after visiting our website as you continue to use the internet. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, through which your usage behavior when visiting various websites is recorded and evaluated by Google. This is how Google determines your previous visit to our website. Consolidation of the data collected during the remarketing with your personal data, which may be stored by Google, does not occur by Google according to its own statements. In particular, according to Google, pseudonymization is used in remarketing.
With the use of remarketing, information about your browsing behavior is collected for marketing purposes in anonymous form and stored on your computer using cookies (targeting / retargeting). Based on an algorithm, we can then show you targeted product recommendations as personalized banner ads on other websites (so-called publishers). If you do not want this to occur, you can disable it via the Ads Preferences Manager (https://www.support.google.com/ads/answers/2662922?HL=EN).
The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR.
2.2.4 Google Campaign Manager (formerly Google DoubleClick)
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server when you visit our website. We have no influence over the scope of the data collected by the employment of this tool by Google and the further use of such data, and inform you therefore according to our level of knowledge: By including Campaign Manager, Google receives the information that you have accessed the relevant part of our website or have clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a service provided by Google, Google may associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a chance that the provider will find out your IP address and store it.
Furthermore Campaign Manager cookies (DoubleClick Floodlight) help us to understand whether you complete certain actions on our website after viewing any of our display/video ads on Google or other platforms through Campaign Manager or clicking through one of these ads (conversion tracking). Campaign Manager applies this cookie to understand the content with which you have interacted on our website to be able to send you targeted advertising later on.
If you want to prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookies please download and install the browser plugin available under “Display settings”, “Extension for Campaign Manager deactivation” at https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/142293?hl=en.
Further information on Campaign Manager is available at https://www.google.de/doubleclick

2.2.5 Google reCAPTCHA
This website uses Google reCAPTCHA to check whether the data entered on our website (such as on a contact form) has been entered by a human or by an automated program (“bots”).
reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR.
2.2.7. Google Fonts
This website uses Google Fonts to display external fonts. For this purpose, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly, which requiresyour browser to establish a direct connection to Google Servers. Google can identify the website from which your request has been sent and to which IP address the fonts are being transmitted for display.
The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR.
2.2.8. Google Tag Manager
This website uses the Google Tag Manager that allows website tags to be managed using an interface. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which in turn collect data if necessary. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this information. If recording has been deactivated on domain or cookie level, it remains valid for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.
The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR.
2.3. YouTube videos
We have also incorporated YouTube videos into our websites. The videos are stored at www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our websites. These videos are incorporated in such a way that no personal data related to you as the user is sent to YouTube if you do not play the videos.
If you do play the videos, YouTube cookies will be stored on your computer and data will be sent to Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, as the YouTube operator.

2.4. Facebook Pixel
For conversion measurement, our website uses the pixel visitor promotion of Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook“).
Because we use the “Custom Audiences” remarketing feature, which you can disable an time as described below, your behaviour can be tracked after you have been redirected to our website by clicking on a Facebook ad. As a result, the effectiveness of Facebook ads can be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures optimized.

9. Your rights
You have the right to receive information in a clear, transparent and intelligible manner regarding how we process personal data and regarding your rights as a data subject (Art. 13 et seqq. GDPR):
