Google Analytics 4

In order to be able to optimally adapt our website to user interests, we use “Google Analytics”, a web analysis service from “Google” (Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland and Google, LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter: “Google” and “Google Analytics 4”). “Google Analytics 4” uses so-called “cookies”, which are stored on your end device for recognition purposes, as well as similar tracking methods for end device recognition such as tracking pixels, device fingerprinting and programming interfaces (e.g. APIs and SDKs) to process information from your end device. For this purpose, a randomly generated identification number (cookie ID/device ID) is assigned to your end device. With the help of these technologies, “Google” processes the generated information about the use of our website by your end device as well as access data for the purpose of statistical analysis – e.g. call of a specific web page, number of unique visitors, entry and exit pages, dwell time, click, wipe and scroll behavior, activation of buttons, registration for the newsletter, bounce rate and similar user interactions.

For this purpose, it can also be determined whether different end devices belong to you or your household. Access data includes in particular the IP address, browser and device information, cookie ID/device ID, the website previously visited, and the date and time of the server request. In systems of “Google Analytics 4” no individual IP addresses are logged or stored. At the moment of IP address collection by Google in special local data centers in the EU, your IP address is used to determine location information. Subsequently, the IP address is deleted before the access data is stored in a data center or on a server for “Google Analytics”. In “Google Analytics 4”, no precise geographical location data is provided, only general location information such as the region and city of the end device’s location derived from the IP address. “Google” will process this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for us and, where separately indicated, providing us with other services relating to website activity. If you are registered with a Google service, “Google” can assign the website visit to your user account and create and evaluate cross-application user profiles. In addition, a cross-platform analysis of user behavior is carried out on websites and apps that use “Google Analytics 4” technologies. This means that usage behavior can be recorded, measured and compared in the same way in different environments. For example, scroll events of the user are automatically recorded, which should enable a better understanding of the use of websites and apps. For this purpose, different cookie IDs/device IDs are used for different end devices.

We are then provided with anonymized statistics on the use of the various platforms, compiled according to selected criteria. “Google Analytics 4” is used to automatically create target groups for specific cookie IDs/device IDs or mobile advertising IDs, which are later used for individualized advertising. Target group criteria that can be considered are, for example: Users who have viewed products but not added them to a shopping cart or added them to a cart but not completed the purchase OR users who have purchased specific items. In this case, a target group includes at least 100 users. With the help of the “Google Ads” tool, interest-based advertisements can then be displayed in search results. Likewise, users of websites can be recognized on other websites within the “Google” advertising network (in Google search, on “YouTube”, so-called “Google Ads” or on other websites) and presented with tailored advertisements based on the defined target group criteria. With regard to the storage of and access to information in your terminal device, the legal basis is Art. 5 para. 3 of the ePrivacy Directive (Directive 2002/58/EC) or the respective implementation in the member states; for further processing, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) DSGVO. “Google” also processes the data in part in the USA. No adequacy decision of the EU Commission exists for a data transfer to the USA. So-called standard contractual clauses have been concluded with Google, LLC in order to commit Google, LLC to an adequate level of data protection. You can obtain a copy of the standard contractual clauses at Your data in connection with “Google Analytics 4” will be deleted after 24 months at the latest. Further information on data protection at “Google” can be found at:

Revocation of your consent to processing is possible at any time by pushing back the slider in the “Manage Cookie Settings” of the Consent Tool for the respective third-party provider. The lawfulness of the processing remains unaffected until you exercise the revocation.
