Privacy Statement for the use of Google Analytics
This webpage uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and which allow an analysis of use of the website by you. The information about the use of the website produced by the cookies will generally be passed on to a Google server in the USA and is stored there. In case of an activation of the IP-anonymization process of this website, Google will first shorten the IP-address within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances is the full IP-address passed on to a Google server in the USA and is shortened there. In behalf of the operator of the website Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, in order to collate reports about website activity and to provide further services to the website operator in relation to the use of the website and the internet. As far as Google Analytics is concerned, the IP-address that was passed on by your browser will not be merged with other Google data. You can avoid the storage of cookies by setting up the browser software accordingly, but we point out that in this case you may possibly not be able to use all the functions of the website fully. Furthermore, you can avoid the collection of data and its use in relation to the website (incl. your IP-address) as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the available browser-plugin through the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
