Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it will then be shortened. At the instruction of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to create reports about website activities and in order to render further services for the website operator connected with the website and Internet use. The IP address conveyed by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be aggregated with other data from Google.

You can find more information about utilisation terms and conditions and data protection under the Google Analytics terms and conditions as well as in the Google Analytics overview. We draw your attention to the fact that Google Analytics was expanded on this website to include the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" in order to ensure anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
