In order to collect and save this data, Google Analytics saves a cookie on the end device used by you (for more information, see the cookies heading above).

This means that the cookie, tracking pixel or any similar method used to process your personal data through this service is only activated when you have consented to this.

Insofar as you are in Germany and are not yet 16 years of age (14 in Austria and Switzerland), you are not yet capable of providing effective consent as per data protection law in the opinion of the respective national legislator. We assess your opt-in as your reasonable expectation with regard to the use of cookies. In this case, we refer to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR as the legal basis.
