a so-called deactivation add-on along with further information. This add-on can be installed with common internet browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you access our website. The add-on notifies the JavaScript (ga.js) from Google Analytics that information about visiting our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services. You can of course also find out in this data protection declaration whether and which other web analysis services we use.

"Alternatively, the future analysis of your website visit can be deactivated by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. By "clicking" on the link, a so-called "opt-out cookie" is set, which means that the analysis of your visit to our site will be prevented in the future:
