Goog­le Ana­ly­tics uses “coo­kies”, which are text files pla­ced on your com­pu­ter to help the web­site ana­ly­se how you use the site. The infor­ma­ti­on gene­ra­ted by the coo­kie about your use of the web­site will gene­ral­ly be trans­mit­ted to and stored by Goog­le on ser­vers in the United States.

If IP address anony­mi­sa­ti­on is acti­va­ted on this web­site Goog­le will first trun­ca­te your IP address in a mem­ber sta­te of the Euro­pean Uni­on or in a coun­try that is a signa­to­ry to the Trea­ty on the Euro­pean Eco­no­mic Area. Only in excep­tio­nal cases will Goog­le trans­mit com­ple­te IP addres­ses to a ser­ver in the U.S. and trun­ca­te them the­re. Goog­le will use this infor­ma­ti­on for the pur­po­se of eva­lua­ting your use of the web­site, com­pi­ling reports on web­site acti­vi­ty for web­site ope­ra­tors and pro­vi­ding other ser­vices rela­ting to web­site acti­vi­ty and Inter­net usa­ge. Goog­le will not asso­cia­te the IP address trans­mit­ted by your brow­ser with any other data held by Google.

Pri­va­cy poli­cy for the use of Goog­le +1

Our web­site uses func­tions of Goog­le +1, a ser­vice pro­vi­ded by Goog­le Inc., 1600 Amphi­theat­re Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA.

Collec­tion and dis­clo­sure of infor­ma­ti­on: you can use the Goog­le +1 but­ton to share infor­ma­ti­on publicly throughout the world. You and other users can use the Goog­le +1 but­ton to obtain per­so­na­li­sed con­tent from Goog­le and our part­ners. Goog­le will record both the fact that you have cli­cked +1 for cer­tain con­tent, as well as infor­ma­ti­on on the web­site that you were viewing when you cli­cked +1. Your “+1s” may be dis­play­ed with your pro­fi­le name and pho­to in Goog­le ser­vices (such as search results or your Goog­le pro­fi­le) or else­whe­re on web­sites and adver­ti­se­ments on the Inter­net. Goog­le records infor­ma­ti­on on your +1 acti­vi­ty for the pur­po­ses of impro­ving Goog­le ser­vices for you and other users. In order to use the +1 but­ton, you need to have a glo­bal­ly visi­ble, public Goog­le pro­fi­le that must as a mini­mum con­tain the name selec­ted for the pro­fi­le. This name will be used in all Goog­le ser­vices. In some cases it may also replace ano­t­her name that you have used when sharing con­tent via your Goog­le account. The iden­ti­ty of your Goog­le pro­fi­le may be dis­play­ed to other users who know your e‑mail address or have access to other infor­ma­ti­on iden­ti­fy­ing you.

Use of the collec­ted infor­ma­ti­on: in addi­ti­on to the uses descri­bed abo­ve, the infor­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded by you is used in accordance with the app­li­ca­ble Goog­le Pri­va­cy Poli­cy. Goog­le may publish aggre­ga­te sta­tis­tics on users’ +1 acti­vi­ty and/or trans­mit the­se to users and part­ners such as publis­hers, adver­ti­sers or asso­cia­ted websites.
