Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service offered by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” - text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information about your use of this website obtained from the cookie is generally transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. We use the anonymizeIP() option.
