4. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600
Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as “Google”). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, text files which are stored on your computer and which allow your use of the website to be analyzed.

Our company does not store any of your data that is collected in connection with Google Analytics.
Our website uses the option of IP anonymization offered by Google Analytics, so that your IP address is truncated/anonymized by Google as soon as Google receives your IP address. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports about website activities and to provide us with further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address that is transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with any other data.
