On our websites we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies.

We use Google Analytics only with the enabled IP anonymization configuration (“gat._anonymizeIp();”) to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking). This means that your IP address will be anonymized by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser is not merged with other Google data.

You can prevent Google from collecting and using your data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
