4. Google Analytics

If you have given your consent, Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited ("Google") is used on this website. The use includes the "Universal Analytics" operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze a user's activities across devices.

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users interact with the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visit or

5. Usage of Plugins


Joomla! Plugins

Our website is developed and maintained using Joomla!. Within Joomla! various plugins are provided as standard. Any plugins, which are not being used to run our website have been disabled. We only use Joomla! plug-ins, which do not transfer data such as name, e-mail addresses or IP addresses.

However, we do use a Joomla! plug-in in to "track" the number of page-views per menu item.


Incorporation of Services and Content from Third Parties

Parts of our website use content from third parties, for example, videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps. This presumes, that the providers of such content (hereinafter referred to as "third party") require the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, they cannot send the content to the user’s browser, because the IP address is necessary for displaying the content. We try to ensure, that we only use such content, when the respective third party uses the IP address only for the delivery of content. We cannot, however, ensure that third parties do not use the IP address for other purposes, such as collecting statistics. When such other purposes are known to us, we will make it known to the user.
