This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”) after the visitor consents to us doing so.

The information generated by the cookie on the way in which you use the website is usually communicated to a Google server in the USA and stored there. When activating the IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will, however, be shortened beforehand by Google within the member states of the European Union or in countries that are contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in cases of exception will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with using the website and the Internet. The IP address communicated from your browser within Google Analytics will not be pooled with other data from Google. You can set your browser software to prevent cookies from being stored. We do, however, point out that you may then not be able to use all of the functions available on this website.
