Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Website, compiling reports on Website activity for Us and providing other services relating to Website activity and internet usage to Us. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html.

Share on social networks
We make use of a social plug-in to enable you to share Website’s information on Facebook or LinkedIn through “Share” buttons.
For data privacy reasons, we deliberately opted against utilizing direct social network plug-ins on our Website. Instead, we employ an alternative technical solution that allows you to decide whether to transmit data to the social network operators and when. Thus when you visit the Website, data are never automatically transmitted to a social network. Only when you actively click on the respective button yourself will your web browser connect to the servers of the social network, i.e. clicking on elements then clicking on the social network’s icon indicates your consent to your browser connecting to the servers of the social network and sending usage data to that social network operator, whether or not you are a subscriber of such social network.
We have no influence over the nature or scope of data that social networks may then gather. For information regarding the purpose and scope of data collection, further processing and use of data by social networks and regarding your data privacy rights and relevant configuration settings, see the social networks’ respective data privacy advisories.
