3. Statistical evaluation

3.1. Google Analytics
Diese Website nutzt Funktionen des Webanalysedienstes Google Analytics. Anbieter ist die Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Die Benutzung erfolgt gemäß Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f auf Grundlage unseres berechtigten Interesses an der statistischen Analyse des Nutzerverhaltens und zu Optimierungs- und Marketingzwecken. Google Analytics verwendet so genannte „Cookies“. Das sind Textdateien, die auf Ihrem Computer gespeichert werden und die eine Analyse der Benutzung der Website durch Sie ermöglichen. Die durch den Cookie erzeugten Informationen über Ihre Benutzung dieser Website werden in der Regel an einen Server von Google in den USA übertragen und dort gespeichert.

IP anonymisation
We have activated IP anonymisation for this website. As such, Google truncates your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to its transmission to the USA. Only in exceptional cases is a complete IP address sent to a Google server in the USA and then truncated there. Google shall use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse your usage of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide the website operator with other services related to use of the website and the Internet. The IP address provided by your browser and collected by Google Analytics is not combined with any other data by Google.

You can prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting your browser software settings; please note that in this case you may not be able to use all of the website functions in full. You can likewise prevent Google from collecting and using the data generated by cookies relating to your website usage (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in which is available via the following link:

Contract data processing
We have concluded a contract data processing agreement with Google and implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities in full with regard to our use of Google Analytics.

3.2. Hotjar
This website uses Hotjar, an analysis software developed by Hotjar Ltd. (‘Hotjar’) (, 3 Lyons Range, 20 Bisazza Street, Sliema SLM 1640, Malta, Europe). Hotjar makes it possible for us to measure and analyse user behaviour on our website (e.g. clicks, mouse movements, scrolling distances). We use Hotjar on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to point (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR for optimisation and marketing purposes and for the design of our website in line with people’s interests. User data from our website shall only be recorded and evaluated for this purpose. We use Hotjar to analyse our website, not the individual users. User data is therefore pseudonymised and is processed within the European Union on the basis of the contract data processing agreement offered by Hotjar. Data inputted by the users, e.g. forms or keystrokes, will not be processed, that is to say it will neither be recorded by Hotjar nor forwarded to Hotjar (unless the user can clearly identify such input as being for the purposes of evaluation, such as feedback forms).
Hotjar sets cookies with a pseudonymised identification number on the users’ devices for the purposes stipulated above and evaluates them. The cookies used by Hotjar have various ‘lifespans’; some remain in place for up to 365 days, while others are only valid for the user’s current visit:

The following information can be logged by your device and your browser:
• Your device’s IP address (collected and logged in an anonymised format)
• Your device’s screen resolution
• Device type and browser information
• Geographical location (country only)
