Analytics tools and advertising
For the purpose of designing our pages to meet our customers’ needs and continuously optimising them, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc.

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. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are anonymised in such a way that they cannot be assigned to a person (IP masking, "anonymizeIp").
