Data Collection by Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer enabling analysis of your use of the website (cf. information below!). The cookie-generated information about your visit to this site is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA for storage.

In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will first abbreviate your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. We point out to you that Google Analytics has been extended by the code “anonymizelp” on this website so as to ensure an anonymized version of the IP address.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about your activities within this site, and to provide the website operator with further services related to use of the website and Internet use. The IP address communicated by your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be compiled with other Google data. You can prevent the cookies from being saved by choosing the respective setting in your browser software; we should mention, however, that this may compromise your ability to make full use of all of the functions this website offers. Furthermore, you can prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected by Google, and prevent Google from processing these data, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available through the following link:
