Use of Google Analytics
To protect your privacy, we have modified Google Analytics so that it does not record your IP address.

- remarketing (displaying advertisements in the content network based on viewed products),
- extended demographic overviews (reporting of anonymous demographic data).
For more information on the processing and use of data, please refer to Google’s terms and conditions.
