This website uses Google Analytics, a website analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are saved to your computer and allow for the analysis of your use of the website. The information about your use of this website created by the cookie is, as a rule, transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there. However, within the European Union’s member states or in other contract states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, your IP address is shortened by Google beforehand in the case of an activation of IP anonymization on this website. Only in exceptions will the complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then shortened on location. By order of this website’s operator, Google will use this information to evaluate the way you use the website, to create reports on website activity and to provide additional services to the website operator that are associated with website and internet use. The IP address that is communicated by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data by Google. You can prevent cookies from being saved in a preference setting in your browser software; however, please note that in this case you may not be able to fully use all functions of this website. In addition, you can also prevent the tracking of the data created by the cookie that is associated with your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google as well as Google’s use of this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
