You can prevent saving of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, we would like to point out that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the website’s functions to their full capacity.  You can also prevent the compilation of the data created by the cookie, referring to your use of the website (including your IP address) being sent to Google and the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

You can find more detailed information on this under http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en or under http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html  (general information on Google Analytics and data privacy). We would like to point out that Google Analytics was extended on this website by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure an anonymous compilation of IP addresses (so called IP masking).
