Data Protection Statement for the use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files which are stored on your computer and which make it possible to analyze your usage of the website. The information created by the cookie in respect of your usage of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the U.S., where it is stored. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address is, however, truncated beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the U.S., where it is then truncated. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website in order to evaluate your usage of this website, compile reports on website activities, and render further services to the website operator that relate to website usage and Internet usage.
You can prevent storage of cookies by adjusting the settings of your browser software accordingly.

Please be aware that, specific to this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();“ on this website, in order to guarantee an anonymous capturing of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
We also use Google Analytics to evaluate data from AdWords and the double-click cookie for statistical purposes. Should you not wish this to take place, you can deactivate this using the Ads Preferences manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=de).
