This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files which are saved on your computer and make it possible for your use of website to be analyzed. The information which the cookie generates on your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and is saved there. Before being saved, your IP address will be shortened by the removal of the final digits, making it impossible to clearly allocate it to a person. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the site in order to compile reports on website activities for the website operators and provide additional services associated with the use of the website and the internet. In addition, Google may potentially transfer this information to third parties, if doing so is required by law or if the third parties in question process said data on Google’s behalf. Google will not link your IP address with other Google data under any circumstances.
You can prevent cookies from being installed by using a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, be advised that you may not be able to make full use all of this website’s functions in such case. By using this website, you consent to Google’s processing of the data collected on you in the aforementioned manner and for the aforementioned purpose.
The collection and dissemination of data: 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 is recording 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.
Functions from Twitter services are integrated into our webpages. These functions are offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. By using Twitter and the function “Retweet”, the webpages that you visit will be linked with your Twitter account and made public to other users.

If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is possibility that the plugins transmits your IP-address to Facebook.
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering our website.
