Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of your visit of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your visit (including the shortened IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

This website uses Google Analytics exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp ()", which ensures anonymization of the IP address by curtailment and excludes a direct personal reference.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. In these exceptional cases, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR  based on our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes.
