Web analytics with Google Analytics

To analyze and further develop our website, we use the functions of the web analysis services Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager of Google Inc. in the USA ( Google Analytics uses cookies that enable website usage analysis. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The data gives us the opportunity to optimize our website for you.

Forms and ReCaptcha V3

We create our forms with the Elementor Pro plugin, which does not store your data on its own servers and therefore does not share it with third parties.
