Data processing related to Google Analytics™
This website uses "Google Analytics", a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the entity responsible for the data processing carried out via this website has its grounds outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland, the relevant Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. (Google Ireland Limited and Google LLC are hereinafter referred to as "Google".) Data processing when connecting the homepage with Google Analytics is performed by Jimdo. Click here for Jimdo's privacy policy, and here for the privacy policy of KDDI Web Communications, which provides Jimdo in Japan.

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files stored on site visitors' computers, to help analyze how the website is used. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of the website (including the truncated IP address) will generally be sent to and stored by Google.

On this homepage, Google Analytics is used exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp ()". This extension ensures IP address anonymization by truncation and excludes direct personal references. Via this extension, Google truncates the site visitor's IP address in member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances will a site visitor's full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States, where it will be truncated. The IP address provided by a site visitor's browser when using Google Analytics is not merged by Google with other Google data.

On behalf of the website operator, Google will use the information collected to evaluate the use of the website, compile reports on website activity, and provide other website and Internet-related services to the website operator ( Article 6(1)(f) GDPR). Our legitimate interest in data processing is the optimization of this homepage, the analysis of the use of the homepage and the adaptation of the content. User interests are adequately protected by data pseudonymization.

Google ensures that an adequate level of data protection is maintained under European standard contractual clauses. Data sent to and linked to Google Analytics cookies (such as user IDs and advertising IDs) are automatically deleted after 50 months. Deletion of data that has reached the retention period is done automatically once a month.

Site visitors can refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on their browsers. Site visitors can also prevent Google from collecting information (including IP address) and processing this information via cookies by installing the browser plug-in described below.

Site visitors can prevent data collection via "Google Analytics" on this homepage by clicking on the cookie settings. An "opt-out cookie" will then be applied to prevent future collection of site visitor data when visiting this homepage.

For more information on the Google Terms of Service and Privacy Policy, please see the Google Analytics Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

According to the GDPR and related laws, site visitors have certain rights in data processed by Google Analytics. In particular the right to data access, rectification, data portability and deletion. Site visitors also have the right to object to certain data processing. A data subject (site visitor) may at any time contact Jimdo or the website operator to exercise these rights in relation to her Google Analytics on this website.
