The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted and saved to a server maintained by Google in the USA. However your IP address will be truncated in advance by Google, if within the Member States of the European Union or in the other states subject to the European Economic Area Treaty IP anonymization has been activated on this website. Only in exceptional cases shall the complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then truncated.
