Google Analytics (with anonymization feature)

We have implemented IP address anonymization from Google Analytics on this website. This feature was developed by Google so that this website can comply with valid legal provisions of data protection law and recommendations of local data protection authorities that prohibit the storage of full IP address information. The IP anonymization/masking takes place as soon as the IP addresses are received by the Google Analytics Collection Network, before any storage or processing of the data takes place. You can find additional information about IP anonymization at

Conversion tracking

We use Google Ads to place ads and to measure the performance of these advertising activities. We employ the conversion tracking feature of Google Ads in the process. If you click a Google Ads ad at Google Search and arrive at the website as a result, we can detect the ad which brought you to our website. No personal data concerning you is stored in the process. We are only sent an advertising ID.

Google Remarketing

Along with Google Ads conversion, we use the Google Remarketing app. This is a feature with which we want to reach you again. If you have already visited our website, this app enables our ads to be shown to you when you subsequently browse the Internet. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser with which Google records and analyzes your use behavior during your visits to various websites. In this way, Google can detect your previous visit to our website.

By its own account, Google does not merge any data collected during remarketing with your personal data that it may have stored. In particular, Google notes that pseudonymization is used during remarketing.

Google reCaptcha

To protect orders submitted on Internet forms, this website uses reCAPTCHA, a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). The query helps to distinguish whether the input was made by a human being or was an abuse involving automated, machine processing. During the query, Google is sent the IP address and possibly other data it needs for its reCAPTCHA service. For this purpose, your input is sent to Google and put to further use there. By using reCaptcha, you give your consent for the detection you performed to flow into the digitization of old books. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address is shortened by Google beforehand within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting parties of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. It is only in exceptional cases that the full IP address is sent to a server of Google in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze your use of this service. The IP address sent by your browser in connection with reCaptcha is not merged with other data of Google. The deviating data protection regulations of Google apply to this data.
