This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ('Google'). Google Analytics uses so-called 'cookies', i.e. text files that are saved on your computer and that make it possible to analyse your usage of this website. The information created by cookies in relation to your usage of this website is usually transferred to, and saved on, a Google server in the US.

In exceptional circumstances only, your full IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the US and abbreviated there. Google will, on behalf of the operator of this website, use this information to assess your usage of the website, to compile reports on your website activity, and to provide the website operator with additional services associated with your usage of the website and of the internet. The IP address transferred from your browser as part of the Google Analytics service will not be combined with other Google data.
