If the IP-anonymization feature of this website is activated, Google will shorten the IP-address of users from states within the European Union or other contractual states of the European economic zone, before transferring it. In certain exceptional cases the full IP-address is transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. By order of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to improve your usage of the site, compile reports about website activities and to provide other services related to website and internet usage to the operator of this site.
