Data protection / Integration of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics makes use of so-called "cookies", i.e. text files, which are saved on your computer to allow an analysis of your use of our website. The information provided by the cookie on your use of this website will be generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it is saved. As IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will therefore be truncated by Google before transmission within member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of this website's operator, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports about website activities, and provide the website's operator with further services related to website and internet usage. The IP address sent by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data by Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by appropriately setting your browser software; in this case, however, please note that you might not be able to fully use all the functions offered by this website. Furthermore, you can prevent both the acquisition of the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of this website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link. We would draw your attention to the fact that on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the "gat._anonymizeIp();" code for the purpose of ensuring an anonymised acquisition of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
