Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service run by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google uses cookies, and the information generated by the cookie regarding the users’ use of the website is generally sent to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored.
Google will use this information on our behalf to analyse users’ use of our website, compile reports on the activities performed within this website, and render additional services associated with Internet use and the use of this website for us. In doing so, anonymous user profiles may be created for users based on the processed data.
We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymisation enabled. This means the users’ IP address is abbreviated by Google in the European Union or European Economic Area member states. Only in exceptional cases is the entire IP address sent to a Google server in the USA and then abbreviated.
The IP address sent by the user’s browser is not combined with other Google data. Users may prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting their browser software accordingly. Users can also prevent Google from recording and processing the data generated by the cookie in relation to their use of the website by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:
