§ 4 Use of Google Analytics

Privacy policy on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation)
The data controller uses components from Google Analytics (with anonymisation) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection and evaluation of data on the surfing behaviour of website visitors. Amongst other things, a web analysis service collects information on which website the data subject accessed our website from (referrer), which subpages of the website were visited and how often and for how long each subpage was visited. The primary reason behind the use of web analysis is to optimise the website and analyse the cost-benefit ratio of internet advertising.
The operating company of Google Analytics is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The data controller uses the extension "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis performed by Google Analytics. Google uses this extension to truncate and anonymise the IP address of the data subject's internet connection when our website is accessed within a member state of the EU or a non-member state which is party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
We use Google Analytics to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the collected data and information to analyse the use of our website and, amongst other things, to compile online reports on our behalf to provide information on surfing behaviour on our website and enable us to offer additional services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics sets a cookie on the data subject’s IT system. The term cookie has been defined in the above. Setting cookies enables Google to analyse the use of our website. Each time a user visits one of the individual pages on this website that features a Google Analytics component and is operated by the data controller, the web browser on the data subject’s IT system is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to send data to Google to enable online analyses. Within the scope of this technical process, certain personal data is transmitted to Google, such as the data subject’s IP address, which Google uses to trace the origin of visitors and clicks, amongst other things, and subsequently facilitate the settlement of commission fees.
The cookie that is set is used to store personal information such as the time of access, the location from which the website was accessed and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the data subject’s internet connection is transmitted to Google servers in the USA. This personal data is then stored by Google in the USA. Personal data collected via technical processes may also be transmitted to third parties by Google in certain cases.
As previously mentioned, data subjects can prevent and permanently object to the setting of cookies by our website through the corresponding settings in their web browser. Changing the relevant web browser settings prevents Google from setting a cookie on the data subject's IT system. Any cookies previously set by Google Analytics can likewise be erased at any time through settings in the web browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject reserves the right to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics pertaining to their use of this website and the subsequent processing of this data by Google. In order to enact this objection, the data subject is required to download and install the browser add-on from the link below: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that data and information related to visits to websites must not be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google recognises the installation of this browser add-on as a declaration of objection. The data subject shall be required to reinstall the browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics in the case that their IT system is erased, formatted or reinstalled at a later date. The browser add-on can be reinstalled and reactivated at any point in time if it has been uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person within their sphere of influence.

§ 5 Integration of Google Maps

(1) We use services offered by Google Maps on this website. This enables us to display interactive maps on our website and facilitates easy navigation of the maps feature for users.

(2) When you visit our website, Google is informed that you have visited the corresponding subpages of our website. Furthermore, the data specified in Section 3 of this statement shall be transferred to Google’s servers. This shall take place regardless of whether you are logged into a Google user account or whether you do not have an account with Google. If you are logged into your Google account, your data shall be directly assigned to your account. If you would like to prevent Google from assigning data to your account, please log out of your account prior to clicking on the Google Maps button. Google saves your data as part of a usage profile and uses it for advertising and market research purposes, and/or the needs-based design of its website. This analysis is primarily carried out (even for users who are not logged in) to provide personalised advertising and inform other users of the social network about your activity on our website. You reserve the right to object to the creation of a user profile and must contact Google to exercise this right.

(3) Please refer to the privacy policy of the respective service provider to learn more about the purpose and scope of data collection and the processing thereof by plug-in providers. This link also provides more information on your rights in this regard and how to change your browser settings to protect your privacy: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and is a signatory to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

 

§ 6 Objection or revoking consent to the processing of your personal data

(1) You are entitled to revoke consent you have previously granted to the processing of your personal data at any time. Once you have notified us of this revocation, the future permissibility of future processing of your personal data shall be affected.

(2) If the processing of your personal data takes place on the basis of a balancing of interests, you are permitted to object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is not required for the fulfilment of contractual duties, as defined in the following description of functions. If you wish to exercise your right to revoke consent, please state the reasons why you object to us processing your personal data. In the case of a justified revocation of consent, we shall review the facts and either discontinue or adjust the processing of your data, or inform you of our compelling legal grounds to the continued processing of your personal data.

(3) You reserve the right to object to any processing of your personal data that is carried out for advertising or data analysis purposes at any time. In order to lodge an objection, please contact us using the following contact details: Edith-Haberland-Wagner Stiftung, Theresienhöhe 14, 80339 Munich, info@ehw-stiftung.de.
