Google Maps and Google Analytics

We employ contents and services of third parties: Google Maps and Google Analytics. Both are provided by Google Inc. (hereafter “Google”), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Maps: When visiting a page on our website that contains a Google Maps widget, your browser initiates a connection to a Google server. This enables Google to see your IP address and the URL of the page you currently load. Please consult Google’s privacy policy for further details.

Google Analytics: this service uses cookies for statistical purposes (for more information about cookies please refer to section cookies).


Cookies are small text files that your browser stores on your computer and retransmits upon subsequent page accesses. Cookies enable an exchange of information across page visits between your browser and the server. This allows for analyzing website usage and user-specific optimizations.

We rely on cookies from Google Analytics to gather web statistics about our website traffic. We configured Google Analytics to anonymize your IP address by zeroing the last 8 bit (or equivalently, the last 80 bits for an IPv6 address). The Google Analytics code transmits the cookie data (e.g., information about your use of our website and your anonymized IP address) to a Google server in the United States. Your IP address will be anonymized already within the territory of the European Union or in other member states of the European Economic Area and afterwards transferred to the USA. In exceptional cases only, the full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and anonymized there on-site.

On our behalf, Google will use this information in order to analyze the use of our website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide us with these reports for analytical purposes. Google will not combine or associate your IP address(es) with other data stored at Google. Please consult Google Analytics’ terms of use and privacy practices for further details.
