Web Analytics with Google Analytics

Our online systems use features of the Google Analytics web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as "Google").

For this purpose, cookies are used that allow an analysis of the use of this website by its visitors (including your IP address). The information generated in this way is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is also stored.

If an IP address is anonymized for a website (this is the case for this website - www.ghix.com), it will usually be shortened within the EU. In certain cases, it is still possible that the entire IP address is first transferred to the US - to a Google server - and then shortened. For information on anonymization of the IP address, you can also refer directly to Google at support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=en

You can prevent data collection by Google by setting up your browser so that no cookies are stored. For example, you can download and install a browser extension directly from Google via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

We also have a contract with Google for order data processing.

Google Remarketing and Conversion Tracking

Our websites temporarily or permanently use the Google AdWords (an online marketing and advertising tool) feature from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Through the use of cookies, users are targeted for the display of advertisements across other homepages within the so-called Google Display Network.

In addition, our websites use "Google Conversion Tracking" both temporarily and permanently, which uses and stores cookies to identify visitors.

Our website also uses various extensions of the Google-operated platform YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
