With the help of Google Analytics, pressrelations uses non-personalized information about the IP address, date of the website visit as well as the duration on the respective subpages. These data are evaluated by us for statistical purposes in order to continuously improve our offer. You can prevent the storage of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser software.
