b) Our website uses features offered by Google Analytics, a web analytics service. The provider is Google Inc., a company based in the US. Google Analytics uses cookies. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer that make it possible to analyze your use of our website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

On this website, we have activated the IP-anonymization function. This means that Google will shorten your IP address before it leaves member states of the European Union or any other nations who are part of the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in a few exceptions will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and be shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP addresses transferred by Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

We have entered into a data processing agreement with Google and are dedicated to implementing strict data protection regulations when using Google Analytics.

Our website uses the demographics feature of Google Analytics. As a result, reports containing information about age, gender, and interests of site visitors can be generated. This data is derived from Google’s interest-based advertising and from third-party visitor data. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software to do so; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You may additionally prevent Google’s collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: Browser Add-on
