Google Analytics

This website uses “Google Analytics”, a service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States) to analyse the use of this website. This service uses text files known as cookies, which are stored on your end device. The information gathered by these cookies is normally transmitted to and stored by Google on one of its servers in the United States.

An IP shield is used on this website, which abbreviates users’ IP addresses within the member states of the European Union and the European Economic Area, making it impossible to link your IP address to you personally. Under the agreement on data processing that website operators have agreed with Google Inc., the latter uses the information gathered to evaluate website usage and activity and to provide services related to using the Internet.

Google reCaptcha

We use Google’s reCaptcha service to determine whether it is a human or computer completing our contact or newsletter form. Google uses the following data to check this: IP address of the end device used, the website of ours you are visiting containing the captcha, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of the browser and the kind of operating system used, the Google account if you are logged in to Google, mouse movements on the reCaptcha interfaces, and tasks that require you to identify images. The legal basis for the data processing described is Art. 6 para. 1 f of the General Data Protection Regulation. We have a justified interest in processing data this way so as to ensure the security of our website and protect us against automated entries (attacks).

 

User’s rights: Access, rectification and erasure

As the user, you can request to be informed free of charge about which personal data of yours we have stored. As long as your request does not conflict with a legal obligation to preserve data (e.g. telecommunications data retention), you have a right to the rectification of any incorrect data and to your personal details being blocked or erased.
