The Keyotag web server transmits small text files (so-called ‘cookies’) to the web browser of its users
and these are saved (and stored) on the recipient computer or terminal equipment. The web server
of Keyotag also employs caches to facilitate the improvement of operations and uses web storage
space to hold raised information.
The ‘cookies’, caches’ and ‘web storage space’ are necessary for the use of the services of Keyotag
but these contain no personally referred data.
The ‘cookies’, which save and store registration data are erased from the ‘CMS’ when the user or
contractual party logs off (signs out). Users or contractual parties can erase the cookies, caches and
web storage at any time manually via the browser settings.

2.1 Data raising with Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc, (1600 Amphitheatre
Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). The use includes the "Universal Analytics"
operating mode. This facilitates the assignment of data, sessions and interactions across several
devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus the analysis of a user's activities across devices.
Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to allow the website
operator to analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use
of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we
use IP anonymisation and Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European
Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only
in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and
shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is
not merged with other Google data. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this
information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to
provide the website operator with other services related to website and Internet use. Our legitimate
interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics
is § 15 para. 3 TMG and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user-

unless Keyotag is statutorily required to keep the data.

address, email address, etc.), for example via contact forms, this is deemed to be voluntary. The
passing-on or sale of personally referred data to third parties is only conducted with the express
approval of the user or contractual party.
