This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). We have a valid data processing amendment with Google (check https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/dpa/dataprocessingamendment_20130906.html). Google Analytics uses "cookies", small text files, which are stored on your computer and allow your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated via the cookie regarding your use of the website is normally sent to a Google server in the USA where it is stored. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will firstly be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be sent by Google to a server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports regarding website activities and to perform further services for the website operator associated with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address forwarded from your browser via Google Analytics will not be combined by Google with other data. You can prevent the saving of cookies via your browser software settings. We would, however, point out that if you do this, you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

Data privacy statement for the usage of Google +1
Collection and dissemination of information:
The Google +1 button is a way for you to share information publicly with the world. The Google +1 button helps you and others receive personalized content from Google and our partners. The fact that you +1’d something will be recorded by Google, along with information about the page you were viewing when you clicked on the +1 button. Your +1’s may appear to others as an annotation with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or on your Google Profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads on the Internet. Google will record information about your +1 activity in order to provide you and other users with a better experience on Google services. In order to use the Google +1 button, you need to have a public Google Profile visible to the world, which at a minimum includes the name you chose for the profile. That name will be used across Google services and in some cases it may replace another name you’ve used when sharing content under your Google Account. Google may display your Google Profile identity to people who have your email address or other identifying information.
