Google Analytics uses so called “cookies” - text files that are saved on your computer to enable the analysation of the usage of the website. The information about the usage of the website, which are given by the cookie, are usually sent to a US Google server and are saved there. Because of the IP-anonymisation on these websites, the IP-address will be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or other contracting states of the agreement in the European Economic Area. Only as an exception, the full IP-address will be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the website operator, Google will use this information to analyse your website usage, to collect reports about the website activity, and to provide services associated with website usage and internet usage to the website operator. Your IP-address, transmitted from your browser by Google Analytics, will not be brought together by Google with other data.

Usage of Script Library (Google Web Fonts)
To be able to present our content correctly and graphically attractive across all browsers, we are using script libraries and font libraries, such as e.g. Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on our website. Google Web Fonts will be transmitted into the cache of your browser to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support or prohibits the access, the content will be presented with a standard font.
The calling of a script library or font library automatically leads to a connection to the library operator. Thereby, it is theoretically possible – still, currently unclear if, and, if need be, to which purpose – that operators of such libraries acquire data.
Usage of Google Re-marketing
This website uses the re-marketing function by the Google Inc. The function is used to display interest-based advertisement to web page visitors within the Google-Advertisements-Network.

Still, if you do not want the re-marketing function by Google to be used, you can always deactivate it by using the respective settings at http://www.google.com/settings/ads.
