Traffic analysis Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytic service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses what are known as “cookies”, text files that are saved on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analysed. The information collected by the cookie on your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP anonymisation is activated for this website.

Your IP address is usually abbreviated within Member States of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the entire address be transmitted to a Google server in the US and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to produce additional services associated with the use of our website and the Internet with respect to the operator of this website.
