Information about Google Analytics
Important note: In July 2020 the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) invalidated the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, the mechanism through which companies could transfer personal information or data to the United States in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Until this decision from the CJEU, data transfers within Google Analytics were based on this Framework. After the decision, data transfers are based on Standard Contractual Clauses provided by Google (article 46 GDPR) and, auxiliary, on your explicit consent, according to the terms set by article 49.1a GDPR, in the absence of an adequacy decision. Data subjects should be aware that their data may be used for profiling by Google and be transferred to the US and a competent public or security authority may be granted access to them.
The Website utilises the “Anonymise IP” function, which is offered by Google as part of the Analytics service. With this specific function, access to your IP address is anonymised by Google while you are accessing our Website. This function is regarded by data protection authorities in the EU as a best practice in the context of appropriate organization and technical measures taken to protect and secure your personal data.
Finally, you have the option to entirely block the collection of your data by Google Analytics, by installing a plug-in on your preferred browser:
