§ 6 Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files that are stored on your computer and facilitate an analysis of your use of the website. The information on your use of this website generated by the cookie is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and is stored there.
