GOOGLE ANALYTICS
This website uses Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service of Google Inc. (»Google«). Google Analytics uses so-called »Cookies«, which are text files placed on your computer, and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will usually be transmitted to, and stored by, Google on servers in the United States. Through the activation of the IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated within Member states of the European Union or other member parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and be truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other with website and internet related services to the website operator. 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 refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

PREVENTING DATA STORAGE
Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. By setting a so-called opt-out cookie, capturing your data while online at this site will be prevented in future.

IP-ANONYMIZATION
In view of the public debate about the storage and processing of complete IP addresses for analysis purposes, we would like to point out that on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the code »anonymizeIp«. To ensure an anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking), IP addresses are transmitted only in abbreviated form. A direct personal identification is excluded. The anonymization or masking of the IP address is set as soon as the IP addresses are received in your Google Analytics data collection network and before storage or processing of the data takes place.

Additional information is available at, for example https://support.google.com/analytics/topic/2919631?hl=en&ref_topic=1008008 (general information about Google Analytics and Privacy Policy).
