i) Google Analytics1
To customize and continually optimize our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.com/intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, below "Google").

will be transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage, for the purpose of market research and tailor-made website design. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this information in the order. In no case will your IP address be merged with other data provided by Google. The IP addresses are anonymized, so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).
You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting the browser software accordingly; however, we point out that in this case not all features of this website may be fully exploited.
You may also collect the data generated by the cookie, as well as the use of this website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https: // tools google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

To statistically record the use of our website and rate it to optimize our website, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. Google Adwords uses a cookie on your computer (see section 4) if you have reached our website through a Google ad.

Each advertiser receives a different cookie. Cookies can not be tracked through the websites of Adwords customers.

Advertisers hear the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.
