Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States of America and shortened there. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website, to analyse your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and additional services to the operator of the website in connection with the use of the website and internet use.
