6. Google Analytics’ Privacy Statement

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. 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. Despite this, it would be technically feasible for Google to identify individual users, at least, on the basis of the data obtained. Data related to specific individuals and the personality profiles of website users could be processed for different purposes by Google, with the website operator having no influence on said purposes, and being unable to acquire any influence thereupon. This, together with the fact that data is transmitted to the USA, constitutes a problem in respect of data privacy. You can readily deactivate the Google Analytics service and thus prevent the transfer of data to Google. To do this, you should deactivate JavaScript in your browser. Please note, however, that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Link.
