Google Analytics
The Website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help the Website analyze how users use the Website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Website will be transmitted to, and stored by, Google on servers in the United States and stored there. In case of activated IP anonymization on the 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.
