Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics works using cookies. Google Analytics cookies collect your IP address; however, because IP anonymisation is used on this website, your IP address will be shortened (and therefore anonymised) as soon as technically possible and before it is stored or otherwise used in connection with Google Analytics. The anonymisation process takes place within the European Union or the European Economic Area, except in exceptional cases, where your full IP address may be sent to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. We use the information collected by Google Analytics cookies to find out about how visitors use our website. Google will not combine the IP address sent by your browser in connection with Google Analytics, with other data. You can prevent Google Analytics cookies from being stored by setting your browser software accordingly. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at www.google.com.
