Use of Google Analytics

It is only in exceptional cases that IP addresses are transmitted first to a Google server in the USA, where they are shortened. Acting on our behalf, Google uses the data to analyse the use of the website for us, to compile website activity reports, and to render further services relating to website and internet use.
The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be connected with other Google data. You may prevent the storage of such cookies by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. You may also prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie and concerning your usage of the website (including your IP address) by Google and to the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout;
