On this Website, we use Google Analytics as well as Microsoft Clarity. We use these analysis services for the purposes set out in this Privacy Statement and and also to safeguard our legitimate interests in making our Website as user-friendly, secure, and attractive as possible, and to promote the sales of our products and services (lawful basis: Art. 6(1) (f) GDPR).
Our Website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service run by Google Ireland Limited, registered at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). You can find more information on how Google uses data from your use of websites or apps from Google partners here: https://policies.google.com/privacy/partners?hl=de.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files stored on your computer, that enable your use of the Website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this Website, such as pages visited, browser type / version, operating system used, referrer URL (i.e. last page visited), are typically transferred to a Google server and stored. It cannot be ruled out that such data processing may take place outside of the European Economic Area. For your safety, we have selected settings ensuring that the IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within the area of Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. The data listed above can be used through identification, i.e. login to Google services. This way Google can determine that you are starting your visit to our Website on a PC and continuing it on a mobile device, and the data from both devices can be combined. We have not activated the user ID adjustment and thus do not capture this data.
Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this Website for the purpose of evaluating how you use the Website, compiling reports on Website activities, and providing further services related to Website and internet usage to the Website operator. We have chosen settings to erase analytics data after 50 months in order to be able to compile and compare statistical data.
The IP address transferred by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google.
Microsoft Clarity is a user behavior analytics tool that helps us understand how users are interacting with our Website through features such as session replays and heatmaps.

By default, any sensitive content such as passwords, usernames, etc. are masked before being sent to Clarity. Microsoft Clarity is GDPR compliant as a data controller.
