6.    Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses what are known as “Cookies”; text files that are stored on your computer and which enable the analysis of the use of the website. The information generated by the Cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to and stored on a Google server in the US. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services related to the usage of the website and internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be associated by Google with any other data.

You may refuse the use of Cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. We would point out, however, that you may then be unable to use all the features of this website to their full extent. Furthermore, you can prevent Google from gathering data generated by the Cookie and data relating to your use of the website (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by downloading and installing the plug-in which can be found at the following link: (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). Given the debate about the use of analytical tools with full IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp ()” and IP addresses are therefore processed in a shortened form only in order to prevent them from being traced to a specific user.
