Use of Google Analytics
On our website, we use the "Google Analytics" service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) for evaluating your use of the website. The information collected by the cookies is generally sent to a Google server in the US and saved there. The IP address of users within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area will be shortened. This shortening of the address eliminates the personal reference to your IP address. Under the Order Data Agreement, which we have concluded with Google Inc., Google uses the information collected to evaluate website usage and activity and to provide services related to internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

You can prevent the data which is created by the cookie and which is in reference to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being sent to Google and from being processed by Google by downloading and installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add on.
