The information generated by the cookie about the users use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Because of activation of the IP-anonymisation by using the code “anonymizelp”, Google will truncate/anonymise the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website, provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating the users 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.
