INSTRUCTIONS CONCERNING THE USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies which are saved on your computer and which make it possible to analyse the way in which you use the website. The information generated by the cookie on your use of the website (including your IP address) is generally transferred to a server of Google in the USA where it is saved.

If, however, the IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google abbreviates your IP address within the member states of European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a server of Google in the USA and abbreviated there. The operator of this website has assigned Google to use this information to evaluate the way in which you use the website in order to compile reports on the website activities and to offer other services to the website operator associated with the use of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of using the Google Analytics service will not be merged with other data held by Google. You can programme your browser software to prevent cookies from being saved; however, we point out that it might not be possible for you to use all the functions of the website as a result of this. Moreover, you can prevent Google from collecting the data produced by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) and also prevent Google from distributing this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link:  http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. By activating the add-on which is downloaded via this link, you in effect object to Google Analytics collecting, using and processing your data.

This website uses the anonymisation option of Google Analytics. Your IP address is only collected in an abbreviated form and cannot therefore be traced back to you.

If you object to the use of cookies, we use a simple cookie whose sole purpose is to note that no data is to be collected and which becomes inactive after the browser session has finished.
