Google Analytics

Our website also uses Google Analytics, a service of Google Inc.

You can prevent cookies from being set by changing your browser’s settings accordingly. Please note however that you may not be able to use all of the website’s functions fully when the use of cookies is disabled.  By using this website, you have consented to allow Google to analyse the data collected about your use of the website in the way and for the purpose explained above.

You may at any time, effective for the future, deny Google Analytics permission to register and use your IP address. 

We draw to your attention that the use of Google Analytics on this website has been expanded with the use of the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to make it possible to collect IP addresses anonymously.
