This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” – text files stored on your computer – for the purpose of analysing the way you use the website. The information generated by the cookies regarding your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it is stored.
If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address within member states of the European Union or other states in the European Economic Area is first shortened by Google. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. By order of the website operator, Google will use this information in order to analyse your use of the website, compile reports on website activities for the website operator and provide additional services related to the use of the website and the internet.
The IP address transferred by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not combined with other data by Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing your browser settings accordingly. However, please note that you may not be able to fully utilise all functions of this website in that case. Furthermore, you can prevent the capture of data (including your IP address) generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website by Google as well as the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
Note: Please be advised that this website uses Google Analytics with the "_anonymizeIp()" extension, so that only your shortened IP address is processed. This excludes the possibility of identifying specific persons.
