1. General

When you first access the website www.evg.de, general information is collected automatically (i.e. not by registering), which is not personal (e.g. Internet browser used, number of visits, average time spent, pages viewed). This information is used to improve the attractiveness, content and functionality of our website and our offering. The information is not used for any other purpose or disclosed to others. We sometimes use cookies in this connection, but also to improve your user experience. These cookies do not contain any personal data, so that you can be sure that your privacy is being protected. You can set your browser not to accept cookies. Where the option of entering personal data is provided within the Internet offering (e.g. e-mail addresses), the disclosure of this data is expressly voluntary. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express permission. If you have any further questions with regard to data protection or your right to be informed about, correct, block or delete this data, please send us an e-mail at the address shown in the publishing details (if possible, please type "Data protection notice" in the subject line so that we can process your message quickly and correctly). Please note that security breaches may occur when data is being transmitted via the Internet (e.g. during e-mail communication). It is not possible to fully protect data from being accessed by third parties on the Internet.

2. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the United States. If IP anonymization is enabled on this website, within the EU member states or European Economic Area (EEA) Agreement signatory states, Google will truncate your IP address beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. As a service to the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be combined with any other data held by Google. You may prevent the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software; however, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this website. Furthermore, you can avoid the acquisition and the processing by Google for the data that is created by the Cookie and that is related to your use of the website (including your IP-adress). You can do so by downloading and installing the browser-plugin, which can be found following this link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. You can also just click on the link, which will also disable the data collection via Analytics.
In view of the debate surrounding the use of analytical tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to advise you that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()” and IP addresses are consequently further processed only in truncated form to prevent the direct identification of particular individuals. For further information on the data protection and privacy policies of Google Analytics, please see: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.
The Google Analytics function "Universal Analytics" is also used on this website. This serves to analyze the activities on the website across multiple devices (e.g. for access with a smartphone and later with a computer). It is enabled by a pseudonymous allocation of a user ID to a user, which, for instance, occurs when you register on the website or when you log in as an already registered user. Neither personal data will be forwarded to Google, nor other actions that serve for data protection such as IP masking or the browser plugin will be limited.

3. Google +1

We use the Google +1 button, as provided by Google Inc. (see above). When you use this function, Google stores the information indicating that you have given a Google +1 and the particular content of our site that you have given it to. This information, together with your profile name and profile photograph may be displayed on your Google account or in other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet. Google provides detailed information on how to use this and any other collected data on the pages "Buttons Policy" and "Privacy Policy". There you will find the latest information on how to disable these functions (in principle, you should be able to do this by logging out of your Google account before visiting our website).

4. Twitter

We use the referral functions of the Twitter service. This function is provided by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. If you click the Twitter referral button, a link to the Twitter server is created. When you then log on to your Twitter account, you will be able to link the content of our pages to your Twitter profile and share it with other users. This way, Twitter can allocate your visit to our website to your user account. Data is also transmitted to Twitter at the same time. You will find further information on data protection on Twitter and the Twitter referral function in Twitter's privacy policy on https://twitter.com/privacy. You will also learn how to change your Twitter account settings to protect your information.

5. Hotjar

We use Hotjar, a web analytics tool by Hotjar Ltd., Level 2, St Julians Business Centre, 3, Elia Zammit Street, St Julians STJ 1000, Malta. Using Hotjar, interactions of randomly selected individual visitors to our website are recorded anonymously.
