Where IP anonymisation is activated, Google will truncate/ anonymise your IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA only in exceptional cases. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software, but please be advised that if you do so, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.
