Google has signed up to the Privacy Shield Framework and has therefore pledged to comply with the provisions of the European data protection law.

GGoogle Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files that are saved on your computer and that make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website is usually transferred to one of Google’s US-based servers and saved there.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to one of Google’s US-based servers and abbreviated there.

On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports about website activity and providing the website provider with other services related to website usage and internet usage. The IP address provided by your browser to Google Analytics will not be linked with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing your browser settings accordingly. Please note, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all of the functions on the website. Furthermore, you can prevent Google’s collection of the data created by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
