The legal basis for the use of technically necessary cookies is § 15, Para. 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), and in some cases is based on Article 6, Para. 1 (1) f) of the GDPR, to safeguard our legitimate interests. Our legitimate interests here consist in particular in being able to provide you with a technically optimized, user-friendly website designed to meet your needs and in ensuring the security of our systems.

Google Analytics

We use the Google Analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited (‘Google’). We adhere to the current valid Google Analytics Terms of Service and to the terms set out in Google’s data processing agreement. In the event of your personal data being processed in a third country, we have also concluded the standard data protection clauses authorized by the EU Commission in accordance with Article 46, Para. 2 c) of the GDPR with Google LLC ( Under Section 10.3 of Google’s data processing agreement, any data transferred will be stored in the following locations (‘data center locations’): For this reason, we use Google Analytics only where you have also given your consent to your data being passed on to the data center locations stated above. In some cases, the third countries in which the data centers are located or from which processing is carried out do not have an adequate level of data protection, based on a decision by the European Commission. (You can find a list of ‘safe third countries’ at: dimension-data-protection/adequacy-decisions_de). Certain countries, including the USA, are not currently considered a safe third country. The transfer of data to unsafe third countries holds risks for your personal data. If it is transferred to the USA, for example, access by the US authorities cannot be ruled out. Although these risks cannot be excluded purely by the conclusion of standard contractual clauses between SNIPES and the data processor or data controller in the third country, Google’s data processing terms (see, ‘Appendix 2’) comprise a large number of technical and organizational measures that are intended to ensure the security of your personal data. Before giving your consent, please give due consideration to the factors stated above.

You can find basic information on how Google processes your personal data here:

Where you have consented to its use, we will use the web analytics service Google Analytics. Google Analytics collects pseudonymous data from you about your use of our website, including your truncated IP address, and also uses cookies.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for us, and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google may link this data with other data you’ve provided, e.g. your search history, your personal account, user data from other devices, and other data that Google has stored about you. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law (e.g. government authorities) or where such parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

Data stored by Google Analytics will be kept for a period of 14 months. After this time, Google Analytics will retain only aggregate statistics. The use of Google Analytics is based on your consent (Article 6, Para. 1 a) of the GDPR).
