Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics works using cookies. Google Analytics cookies collect your IP address; however, because IP anonymization is used on this website, your IP address will be shortened (and therefore anonymized) as soon as technically possible and before it is stored or otherwise used in connection with Google Analytics. The anonymization process takes place within the European Union or the European Economic Area, except in exceptional cases, where your full IP address may be sent to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. We use the information collected by Google Analytics cookies to find out about how visitors use our website. Google will not combine the IP address sent by your browser in connection with Google Analytics with other data. You can prevent Google Analytics cookies from being stored by setting your browser software accordingly.
To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all website, visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
