Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and compressed there.

In addition, you can prevent Google from logging the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

We use Google Analytics with the extension, _anonymizeIp(). This compresses the IP addresses collected by Google. These procedures are intended to prevent the merging of Google IP addresses with personal data.
