Google Analytics is on this website exclusively used with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This extension ensures that the IP address is anonymised by shortening it and makes it impossible to trace the IP address to a specific user. Using this extension, Google shortens the IP address within member states of the EU or other Contracting States to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand.

The legitimate interest in the data processing is the optimisation of the website, the analysis of website use and the modification of content, which is enabled by Jimdo’s statistics functionalities. User interests are sufficiently safeguarded through the pseudonymisation.
Google carries a Privacy Shield certificate (see entry here) and on this basis, guarantees a suitable level of data protection.

Data that has reached its storage period is automatically being deleted once per month.

Use of Google AdWords
We also use the Google advertising tool "Google-Adwords" for advertising purposes. As part of this, our website uses the "Conversion Tracking" analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as "Google". If you access our website via a Google ad, a cookie is placed on your computer. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. These so-called "conversion cookies" cease to be active after 30 days and are no longer used to identify you personally. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie is till active, we and Google know that you as a user have clicked on one of our advertisements placed with Google and have been redirected to our webpage.
Google uses the information obtained through “conversion cookies” to compile statistics for our website. These statistics tell us the total number of users who have clicked on our ads, as well as which pages of our website were subsequently accessed by each user. However, neither we nor other advertisers who use “Google-Adwords” receive any kind of information that can be used to personally identify users.
You can prevent the installation of "conversion cookies" by making the appropriate settings in your browser, such as a browser setting that generally disabled the automatic setting of cookies or specifically blocks only the cookies from the "googleadservices.com" domain.
