The data about your use of this website created by the cookie (including your IP address) is sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP anonymisation has been activated on this website, so the IP addresses of Google users in European Union member states or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area are first shortened. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to produce reports on the website activity and to carry out other services for the website operator in relation to website use and Internet use. The IP address transferred from your browser for Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. You can prevent cookies being changed by changing the relevant setting in your browser software.
