Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.
