Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” which are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored on a server of Google in the USA.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activities and providing the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. You may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings of your browser software. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent Google’s collection and processing of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of this website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:
