Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountainview, CA 94043 USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by these cookies, for example about the time, place and frequency of your use of this website, is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. When using Google Analytics, it is not excluded that cookies set by Google Analytics may collect other personal data in addition to the IP address. We would like to point out that Google may transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will use the information generated by cookies on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged by Google with other data according to its own statements. You can generally prevent cookies from being saved by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

This plug-in prevents information about your visit to the website from being transmitted to Google Analytics. This plug-in does not prevent any other analysis. Please note that you cannot use the browser plug-in described above when visiting our website via the browser of a mobile device (smartphone or tablet).
