The web analysis also enables us, above all, to detect and rectify problems with the web page, e.g. through broken links. Google Analytics uses "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website.

Since we have activated the "IP anonymization" feature on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other States party to the Agreement on the European Economic. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the Internet to the website operator. The IP address transferred by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data held by Google.
