Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on visitors' computers, to help the website operators analyse how visitors use the site. The information generated by the cookie about the visitors' use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

On this website, IP anonymisation has been activated. The IP addresses of Google users from European Union member states, or from other states contracting to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, will be shortened. Only in exceptional cases will a complete IP address be transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of the website operator, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating the website for its users, in order to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage for website operators.

Google will not associate the IP address transferred in the context of Google Analytics with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that in this case you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Google Remarketing

This website uses the Google Remarketing technology. Advertisements can be presented within the advertising network of Google based on content which has previously been accessed on websites within the Google advertising network by visitors that are also using the Google Remarketing feature.

When you access this website while logged into your Google account and when you have chosen to enable Google to associate your browsing history with your Google account and to use such information to personalize advertisements, Google associates information collected through Google Analytics to your Google account data.
