    We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. www.google.de/intl/de/about (hereinafter referred to as "Google"), for the purpose of tailoring the design of our app to your needs and continuously optimising it.

Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymised so that an allocation is not possible (IP masking).
