This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc ("Google"). In doing so, text files are stored on your computer, which then enable an analysis of the use of the website. The information thus generated is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and subsequently stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on our website, your IP address will only be shortened beforehand by Google within the member states of the EU or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. In a few exceptional cases, the full IP address may be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then shortened there. Google can then evaluate your use of the website on the basis of this information, which is stored, in order to then provide a compilation of a report on the advertising website activities. Based on this report, Google can then also provide further services to the website provider related to website and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser via Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage or installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software. At the same time, we would like to inform you that in this case, functions of our website may be restricted.
