Use of Google Analytics with anonymization function
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”, on our website.

Further information on IP anonymization and data usage by Google can be found at:
