Cookies are small text files that a web server (e.g. the web server of www.ehlaw.at) sends to your browser when you visit a website. The text files contain data from visited websites, which your browser saves while surfing. Some cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Some cookies remain stored on your device and are only deleted after a certain time, which varies depending on the cookie, or if you manually delete them (so-called permanent cookies).

2. Use of the web analysis service Google Analytics

E&H uses the web analysis service Google Analytics with the aim of constantly improving the features and services of the website. E&H does not link the data collected in this way to other personal data.

Google Analytics is a service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter “Google“).

This service uses cookies on our behalf to evaluate your use of our website (in particular number of visitors on the website per day; through which links/search words or from which other websites the visitor arrives on our website; time spent on the website; viewed content) in anonymous form in order to compile reports on the website activities for us and to be able to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the internet. If this results in the processing of your personal data (your IP address), this is done on the basis of our overriding legitimate interest in producing easy-to-use website access statistics in a cost-efficient way.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address and the URLs of the websites accessed) is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. We do not store any of your data that is collected in connection with Google Analytics.

The website uses the IP anonymization option offered by Google Analytics. Google will therefore shorten/anonymize your IP address as soon as Google receives your IP address. By the shortening/anonymization the identifiability of a person can be eliminated. The shortening/anonymization of your IP address is carried out by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has been certified according to the EU-US Privacy Shield.

Further information thereto can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/.

You can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at this link.
