Therefore, if any data raised about you has a personal connection, this is immediately excluded and with that, the personal data is deleted at once.
(5) We use Google Analytics to analyze how our website is used and to be able to make ongoing improvements. With the help of the statistics raised we aim to improve our offers and make them more interesting for you, our users.
