This website uses “cookies”. These are small text files that our web server sends to your browser and stores on your computer’s hard drive.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web-analysis service of Google Inc. (Hereinafter “Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”.

The information collected by cookies on your usage of this website is transferred to and saved on a server owned by Google located in the United States of America. IP anonymisation is active on this website. This is done by shortening your IP address and storing it without the last octet. This allows us to identify the network from which an enquiry originates, but not the individual computer. Google will normally save your abbreviated IP address within a member state of the European Union or a state subscribing to the agreement governing the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will a full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of the website, to draw up reports on website activities for site operators and in order to provide further services relating to website and Internet usage. The IP address obtained from your web browser by Google Analytics will not be linked to any other data held by Google. You can configure your web browser software to block the installation of cookies. However, if you do so, please note that certain functions offered by the website may no longer be fully available.
