Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help analyze how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the United States. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states 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 shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website operator.
