Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files stored on your computer that allow an analysis of how the website is used by its visitors. The information generated by the cookie regarding the use of this website (including your IP-address) will be transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA.

Ascenion GmbH uses Google Analytics’ “anonymizeIP” function on its website. This function automatically abbreviates the last octet (i.e. the last eight figures) of the IP addresses of users within the European Union and in European Economic Area member states, thereby preventing Google to track the individual IP address of a user of our website.

Despite the abbreviation of the IP address as described above, Google will use the information generated by the cookies to evaluate the use of our website, to create reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services connected with website and internet use. Google may in some cases transfer this information to third parties, where this is legally required or permitted, or where third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

As a user of our website, you may opt out from being tracked by Google Analytics in the future. You can do this by clicking on one of the two links shown below, or alternatively you can change your browser settings manually. This will prevent the installation of cookies. We advise you, however, that this may prevent you from using the full functionality of this website.

You can download the browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics here. Alternatively, you can change your browser settings manually (when using this website with a desktop browser). If you are accessing this website via a mobile device, you can find an appropriate opt-out cookie here.
If you do not make use of these possibilities, then by using this website you agree that the data collected by Google may be processed as described above and for the purpose described above.
