This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analysed. The information that the cookie generates about your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. We have activated IP anonymization.

Only in exceptional cases will the full address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to render other services for the operator that relate to the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address that your web browser transmits within the context of Google Analytics is not combined with other data held by Google. You can prevent cookies from being stored via the corresponding setting in your browser; however, please be aware that you may not be able to enjoy all functions of this website if you do so.
