Data Privacy Policy on the Use of Google Analytics

This website uses features of the Google Analytics web analytics service. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", i.e. text files stored on your computer that make it possible to analyse your website usage. The information the cookie generates about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

In the event that IP address anonymisation is enabled on this website, however, Google will first truncate your IP address within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this data to analyse your use of the website, compile reports on website activities and provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser for Google Analytics is not linked to or associated with other Google data.

You can refuse and disable the use and storage of cookies by configuring the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that in this case, you may not be able to use the full functionality and all the features of this website.

You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing data that is generated by the cookie and related to your usage of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
