In order to design our website as required, we create pseudonymous user profiles with the help of Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you.

However, as we have enabled IP anonymization on this page, your IP address will be truncated within the European Union Member States or in other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and only shortened there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage.
You can contradict the creation of the pseudonymous user profiles at any time. There are several ways to do this:
1.) You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics:
2.) You can prevent the storage of the cookies used for the profile formation by a corresponding setting of your browser software.
