This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.

Among other things, the following data is collected from you: IP address, time spent on the website, language, location and the browser you use. The analysis here is done by means of an algorithm (machine learning) that measures and analyzes your user behavior based on the data collected and can recognize it on other devices you use.
