Google Analytics

However, in cases of IP anonymisation on this website, Google will first truncate your IP address within the European Union or other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. Google will not combine the IP address transmitted by your browser via Google Analytics with other Google data.

This will also result in data transmission to the respective social network service.
