IP anonymization is active on this website. The IP address of users is truncated within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in other contracting states of the agreement.

The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not combined with other Google data. As part of the agreement on order data processing, which we, as the website operator, have concluded with Google Inc., Google uses the collected information to evaluate website usage and activity and provides services related to internet use.
The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the usage of our online offerings by individual users, e.g., to create reports on website activity and to improve our online offerings.
