Demographics of Google Analytics

This website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. This allows you to create reports that contain statements about the age, gender, and interests of page visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as from third-party visitor data. This data cannot be associated with a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google Account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the item “Opposition to data collection”.

Speicherdauer

User-level and event-level data stored by Google that is linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID) will be anonymised or deleted after 14 months. Details can be found at the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=de

Google Analytics Remarketing

This website uses the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

This feature allows the advertising audiences created with Google Analytics Remarketing to be linked to the cross-device functions of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been customized to you on one device (e.g. mobile phone) depending on your previous usage and browsing behavior can also be displayed on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have given your consent, Google links your web and app browsing history to your Google Account for this purpose. This way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on any device you sign in to with your Google Account.

To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated user IDs that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad advertising.

You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing/targeting by disabling personalized advertising; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The summary of the collected data in your Google Account is based exclusively on your consent, which you can submit or revoke with Google (Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR). For data collection operations that are not merged into your Google Account (e.g. because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the merge), the collection of the data is based on Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymised analysis of the website visitors for advertising purposes.

Google Ads und Google Conversion-Tracking
