The website also uses Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a Web analytics service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”; these are text files that are stored on your hard disk and permit an analysis of use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, since we have activated IP anonymization, your IP address will already be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. At our request, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to draw up reports on website activities and to render other services to us concerning use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser through Google Analytics will not be used in conjunction with other Google data.
You can prevent the cookies from being stored by adjusting your browser software, but if you do so you may not be able to use all the functions of the website in full.
