These analyses are pseudonymised as per Section 15 Subsection 3 TMG as much as possible, i.e. the name and other identifying characteristics are replaced by a neutral label in order to prevent the association of the data with a particular natural person.
This website further makes use of Google Analytics reports about demographic characteristics, which use data from targeted advertising provided by Google and visitor data from third parties (e.g. age, gender and interests). These data cannot be associated with any specific individual and can be deactivated in the display ad settings at any time.

This website uses plugins by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). If you access our website from web pages which have such a plugin, this creates a link to the Facebook servers and the plugin is shown on the web page by a message to your browser. This tells the Facebook server which of our web pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook at the same time, Facebook will allocate this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plugin functions (e.g. clicking on the "like" button, making a comment), this information is also assigned to your Facebook account; you can only prevent this from happening by logging out before using the plugin. You will find more detailed information on the collection and use of data by Facebook and on your rights to protect your privacy in this regard in Facebook’s data protection policy.
