Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will utilize this information to analyze your use of the website in order to compile reports on website activity and provide the website operator with further services relating to the utilization of the website and the Internet.

The data originates from Google’s interest-based advertising and visitor data from third-party providers. The data cannot be assigned to a specific individual. You can disable this feature at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally disallow the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the “Objection to Data Collection” section.
