Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics services from Google Inc. (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files stored on your computer to analyze how you use our website. Google usually transfers the information generated by the cookies about your use of this website to a server in the USA, where it is stored. However, in the event the anonymize IP function is activated on this website, Google first abbreviates your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other countries party to the agreement covering the European economic area. In exceptional cases Google transfers the full IP address to a server in the USA, where it is abbreviated. Google uses this data on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and provide further services associated with website and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address from your browser transmitted by the Google Analytics service is not merged with other Google data. You can prevent cookies being stored on your PC by making appropriate settings in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in that case you may not be able to use all of the functions on this website to their full extent. Furthermore, you can prevent the data generated by the cookie based on your usage of this website (including your IP address) being sent to Google as well as prevent Google processing the data by downloading and installing a corresponding opt-out plugin for your browser.
