This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies, i.e., text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information that the cookies generate about your use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored on one of Google's servers in the US.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to and truncated by Google servers in the US. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data by Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the settings of your browser software accordingly. However, we must point out that in such a case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in their entirety. In addition, you can prevent the collection and disclosure of the data generated by the cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin made available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Please note that the use of the browser plugin is confined to the relevant browser and also to the relevant computer in each case and may not be deactivated or deleted if the deactivation of Google Analytics is to be maintained. The Google privacy policy is available at www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. You may also prevent Google's collection and use of data by clicking on the following link.
