This website uses Google ™ Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies” – text files that are stored on your computer and allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information on your use of this website generated by the cookie is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if the IP anonymiser function is activated on this website, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within European Union Member States or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
In exceptional cases only, the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the internet. The IP address transferred by your browser under Google Analytics is not associated with other Google data.
You can stop cookies from being stored using the relevant setting in your browser; however, please note that this may prevent you from making full use of all the functions of this website. You can also stop Google from gathering the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available through the following link: Disable Google Analytics.
We also use Google Analytics for analysing AdWords and double click cookie data for statistical purposes. If you don't agree with this, you can disable it in the Ads Preferences -Manager.
Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at here or at general information to Google Analytics and privacy. Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking).
As alternative to the browser add-on, or if you are using a mobile device, click here to prevent tracking by Google Analytics on this website in the future (the opt-out feature only works in this browser and only for this domain). When you do this, an opt-out cookie is stored on your device. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must Disable Google Analytics again.
