To make this site accessible for you, your IP address is processed by the web server.

The application with which this site is operated saves some types of data about the access to this website for a limited period of time.

The data transfer to the USA is done according to the Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/1250 of the EU Commission (EU-US privacy shield).
