We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of users is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other data from Google. We use Google Analytics and all the following Google services (incl.
