This occurs in any member state of the European Union or any other contractual state of the agreement of the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases the IP-address will be shorted after it has been transferred. By order of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze your usage of this website, to create reports regarding the websites activities and to create other services to the operator of this website regarding website- and internet usage.
