Web analysis with Google Analytics

This web­site uses Google Ana­ly­tics, a web ana­ly­sis ser­vice of Google Inc. (Google). Google Ana­ly­tics uses coo­kies, i.e. text files stored on your com­pu­ter to en­able ana­ly­sis of web­site usage by you. In­for­ma­tion ge­ne­ra­ted by the coo­kie about your use of this web­site is usually trans­mit­ted to a Google ser­ver in the United Sta­tes and stored there. In case of ac­tiva­ted IP an­ony­mi­za­tion on this web­site, howe­ver, your IP ad­dress is pre­viously trun­ca­ted by Google wi­t­hin mem­ber sta­tes of the Eu­ro­pean Union or in other sta­tes which are party to the agree­ment on the Eu­ro­pean Eco­no­mic Area. Only in ex­cep­tio­nal ca­ses is a full IP ad­dress trans­mit­ted to a Google ser­ver in the United Sta­tes and trun­ca­ted there. On be­half this website’s ow­ner, Google will use this in­for­ma­tion to eva­luate your use of the web­site, com­pile re­ports about web­site ac­tivi­ties, and pro­vide the website’s ope­ra­tor with fur­t­her ser­vices re­la­ted to web­site and In­ter­net usage. The IP ad­dress sent from your brow­ser as part of Google Ana­ly­tics is not mer­ged with other data by Google. You can pre­vent sto­rage of coo­kies by ap­pro­pria­tely set­ting your brow­ser soft­ware; in this case, howe­ver, please note that you might not be able to fully use all func­tions of­fe­red by this web­site. In ad­di­tion, you can pre­vent data ge­ne­ra­ted by the coo­kie and re­la­ting to your use of the web­site (in­clu­ding your IP ad­dress) from being collec­ted and pro­ces­sed by Google, by down­loa­ding and in­stal­ling a brow­ser plug-in from the fol­lo­wing link:
