Our site uses Google Analytics with anonymous IP (Google Inc.)

Google Analytics is a web analysis service offered by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google uses the Information collected to track and investigate the use of our Application, to prepare reports on activities and to share them with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to place and personalize the ads of its own ad network in context. This integration of Google Analytics anonymizes your IP address. In Member States of the European Union and in countries, affiliated to the ‘ Agreement on the European Economic Area ‘, this works by shortening the IP addresses. Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP address be sent to a Google server and shortened within the US. See also Google’s information for site and app visitors with Google Analytics.
