Use of Google Analytics

Nature and purpose of the processing

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereafter: "Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", ie text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these websites, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics within the framework of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data provided by Google.

The purposes of the data processing are the evaluation of the use of the website and the compilation of reports on activities on the website. Based on the use of the website and the Internet, other related services will be provided.

Legal basis

The processing of the data is based on the consent of the user (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).


The recipient of the data is Google as a processor. For this we have concluded with Google the corresponding order processing contract.

Storage time

The deletion of the data takes place as soon as they are no longer necessary for our recording purposes.

Third country transfer:

Google processes your data in the US and has submitted to the EU_US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Provision required or necessary:

The provision of your personal data is voluntary, solely on the basis of your consent. If you prevent access, this may result in functional restrictions on the website.

Withdrawal of consent:

You can prevent the saving of cookies by setting up your browser software accordingly; however, we point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to its full extent. You can save cookies by setting your browser software accordingly prevent; however, we point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in full. You may also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install: Browser Add On zur Deaktivierung von Google Analytics.

Opt-Out Cookie

In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be installed on your device. This will prevent the collection by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser in the future, as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.


With the help of the tracking tool Google Analytics the behavior of the visitors of the website can be evaluated and the interests analyzed. For this we create a pseudonymous user profile.

The “Google Custom Search Engine” (Google CSE) is used as a central search service within our online offering. The integrated search service enables a full-text search for content on this homepage. Access to this search function is possible via a search box integrated in the header of the individual websites.

To inform the user, the text “Search with Google” is displayed in the search box. If the input field of the search box is selected by the user and filled with a search term, an additional link appears below the search box ("Information on Google™ search"), which refers to the information on data protection provided here.

Activation of search

By entering a search term in the search box and then pressing the enter key or the search icon (magnifying glass), the user activates the search function and the search results page, which is provided by Google Plugins, is called up and reloads the corresponding search results from Google. In doing so, data is transmitted to the search service.

Search Results Page

The plug-in developed and made available by Google (Google Custom Search Engine “Google CSE”) is integrated into the search results page by the operator of this homepage as a software module “as-is” (unchanged). The plugin enables automated communication (data exchange) between the search results page and the Google service when the search results page is called. The use of the search function provided by Google includes a dynamic transfer of data by the service provider Google to the search results page.

Transfer of data and Google CSE

Data is only transmitted to Google as soon as the user has called up the search results page. By using the search function within the search results page, user data is also transmitted to Google at the same time. If official web pages of this homepage are called up without activating the "Google user-defined search", no data will be transmitted to the search service provider (Google). There is an exception in cases where users directly reference a search results page though.

Consent to data transfer by using Google search

By using the full-text search and the associated access to the search results page, you consent to the transfer of data to the Google service. These include e.g. the search terms you entered and the IP address of the computer you are using.

Please note that different data protection standards apply to Google than to this online offer! We point out that the processing, in particular the storage, deletion and use of any personal data that may be transferred, is the responsibility of the search service provider and that the operator of this Internet presence, Michael Breitung Photography, has no influence on the type and scope of the data transferred as well as its further processing.

If you are logged into Google at the same time, the Google service is able to assign the information directly to your user profile. You should log out to avoid the collection of personal profile information.

Further information from Google about the handling of user data (data protection declaration) is available at: https://policies.google.com/privacy

Embedded YouTube-Videos

On some of our websites we embed Youtube videos. The corresponding plug-ins are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plug-in, it will connect to Youtube's servers. Youtube will be informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can connect your surfing behavior to you personally. This can be prevented by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.

If a Youtube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior.

Anyone who has disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program does not have to expect such cookies when watching YouTube videos. But Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you have to block the storage of cookies in your browser.

Further information on data protection at "Youtube" can be found in the privacy policy of the provider: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

We ourselves do not collect personally identifiable information by means of these links or their use.

We have no control over what data is collected on these websites and how it is used by the provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the services of the provider will be created and at least the IP address and device-related information will be collected and used. It is also possible that the service providers try to save cookies on the used computer. Please refer to the privacy policy of the respective service provider to see which specific data is collected and how it is used.
