If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP is abbreviated in advance within member states of the European Union or other states that are signed up to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the USA, where it is abbreviated. As instructed by the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to draw up reports on the website activity, and to provide further services for the website operator relating to the use of the website and the Internet in general.
