Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

In view of the discussion about the use of analytical tools with complete IP addresses we would like to point out that our website uses Google Analytics with the extension "anonymizeIp()" which means IP addresses are only processed in an abbreviated format so as to exclude a direct personal identification reference.

At any given time, you can revoke Google Analytics' right to collect and use your IP address from that point forward: Browser add-on to opt out of Google Analytics
