This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” – text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of how you use the website.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be abbreviated by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and abbreviated 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 activities, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible.

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file that is stored on your computer by a website you visit.
Cookies store information such as your preferred language or other personal page settings. Later, when you visit the site again, the browser returns the stored cookie information to the site. This allows you to see individual and customized information.
Cookies may contain a large amount of information that personally identifies the visitor (such as your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number). However, a website only has access to personal information that you provide. For example, a page cannot determine your email address without your intervention. Also, a website cannot access other files on your computer.
If you use the default settings for cookies, these activities run unnoticed by you. You will not know if a page has stored a cookie or if your browser is sending cookie information to a website. However, the browser can be configured in such a way that you are asked for your permission before a cookie may be saved. You can also limit the existence of cookies to individual browser sessions.
