Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”).

Through the anonymization, Google shortens IP addresses within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, which is why no conclusions about your identity are possible. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States of America and shortened there.
