Google Analytics / Universal Analytics web analytics service

frogblue AG uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how visitors use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. If IP anonymization has been activated on this website, the IP address of the Google user within Member States of the European Union or in other States party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area will first be shortened.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse the use of the website, compile reports on website activities and to render additional services associated with website use and internet use to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by the user browser as part of Google Analytics is not consolidated with other data by Google. The user can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the corresponding settings in the browser software. However, frogblue AG would like to point out that the user may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

frogblue AG also uses Google Analytics reports to log demographic characteristics and interests.  

The user can also prevent the logging of the data generated by the cookie relating to the use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in from the following link:
