Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is the controller responsible for your data. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the company affiliated with Google

information generated by these regarding your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP
anonymisation is activated on this website.
Google uses this to shorten your IP address beforehand within Member States of the European Union or in other signatories to the
