The information generated by the Cookie about your use of this website is generally transferred to and stored at a server of Google in the U.S. In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be previously abbreviated within the member states of the European Union or other members of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP-address transmitted to a Google server in the U.S. and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to evaluate your use of the website, to prepare reports about the activities on the website and to deliver additional services related to the use of the website and the Internet to the website operator. The IP-address which is transferred by your web browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not consolidated with other Google data.

In view of the discussion on the use of analytical tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension of “_anonymizeIp()” and therefore the IP-address is further processed only in abbreviated form in order to prevent direct identification of individuals.

We also use Google Analytics to evaluate data from AdWords and the double-click cookie for statistical purposes. If you do not want this to be performed, you can disable the function via the Ads Preferences Manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=de).
