The information generated by the cookie on your use of the website (including your IP address, which is, however, rendered anonymous using the _anonymizeIp() method before it is saved so that you can no longer be assigned to a particular number) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google will in no case connect your IP address with other data of Google. You can prevent the installation of the cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; we draw your attention to the fact, however, that you will in this case not be able to use all of the functions of this website.
