Web analysis
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysing service operated by Google Inc. ("Google").

Such information on your use of this website as generated by the cookie (including your IP address) is transferred to and stored on a Google server in the US. Your IP address is recorded but immediately abbreviated and pseudonymised, so that only a very general localisation is possible. Google will use such information to analyse your use of the website, prepare reports on website traffic for the website operators and furnish other services in connection with website and internet use. Google will furthermore pass on such information to third parties if so prescribed by law or to the extent a third party processes them on behalf of Google. Google will not link your IP address to other data of Google Inc. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we need to point out to you that in this case you will not be able to use all functions of this website to the fullest possible extent.

To the extent that no express duration for safekeeping is specified on collection (e.g. within the scope of a declaration of consent), your personal data are erased (or anonymised) once they are no longer necessary to fulfil the purpose for saving them and no statutory storage obligations (such as preservation obligations under commercial and tax laws) exist.
