This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyze how users use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your usage of the website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will first truncate your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other party states to the agreement on the European Economic Region.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and then truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other website and Internet related services to the website operator. Your IP address is not combined with any other data collected from your browser and sent through Google Analytics.
This website uses Google AdSense, a service that incorporates advertisements from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google AdSense uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyze how users use the website. Google AdSense also uses so-called Web Beacons (invisible graphics). These Web Beacons make it possible to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on this site.
The information generated by cookies and Web Beacons about your usage of the website (including your IP address) and delivery of web formats is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This information may be sent from Google to a Google contractual partner. However, Google will not combine your IP address with your other stored data.
Collection and Dissemination of Information
The Google +1 button allows you to publicize information worldwide. Through the Google +1 button, you and other users receive personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you have given a +1 for a topic as well as information about the page that you were viewing when you clicked on +1. Your +1s may be shown as references with your profile name and your photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads on the Internet.
Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and for others. In order to use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile which contains at least a profile name. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can replace a different name that you used to share content with your Google account. The identity of your Google profile may be shown to users who know your e-mail address or have other identifying information about you.
Use of Collected Information:
Functions of the Twitter service are integrated on our website. These functions are officered by Twitter Inc., Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. Through the use of Twitter and the “re-tweet” function, the websites that you visit will be linked with your Twitter account and made known to other users. This data is also transmitted to Twitter.
You can change your Twitter data privacy settings in your account settings at http://twitter.com/account/settings.
