Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google” in the following). Google Analytics uses “cookies,” which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA. However, IP masking is activated on this website, so in the member states of the European Union and in other countries that are signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, Google will first abbreviate your IP address. It is only in exceptional cases that your full IP address will be transmitted to a server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of this website's operator, Google will use this information to assess your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
