Thanks to IP masking on this website your IP address is truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union as well as other States party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the US and subsequently truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website Google will use the information to analyse your use of the website, to gather reports on the website activity and to provide the website operator with further services pertaining to use of website and use of internet.

The user can disable the Remarketing functionality by changing the functionality of Google Remarketing Tags or disabling Remarketing altogether. Alternatively, the user has the option to deactivate the use of cookies via a third party.
