Google Analytics

We use Google's Google Analytics tool (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).

Google Analytics works with text files stored on your device (so-called "cookies") to gather information about your website usage. Google uses this information on our behalf to provide us with website usage reports, website activity reports and other services. The data collected through the use of "cookies" about your use of the website is usually transmitted to and stored by Google in the USA for analysis purposes. A combination of other data stored on Google about you will not occur.

We also use the masking function "anonymizeIP". Before you transfer your IP address to Google servers in the US, it will be truncated within the EU. A transmission of the unabridged IP address only occurs in rare cases and is then shortened on the servers in the USA. You can prevent this process by:

Setting your browser so that no "cookies" are stored. However, this might mean that our website is not fully functional. Furthermore, it is possible to prevent the data collection by a browser add-on from Google. The add-on can be found here:
