Google Analytics

This website is like millions of other websites using Google Analytics to gather information about site visitors and their behavior. We use Google Analytics to get an idea for:
– how many visit our website gets
– how visitors found our website
– in which content they are interested
– how long they stay on our website and on each individual page
– what region they are from
– what type of computer hardware and internet software they are using
– and similar details

However, we do not send any additional personally identifiable information to Google Analytics and we will not merge submitted information from the forms on this website with data from Google Analytics. The collected information is used only for statistics, which in turn help us serve you with content relevant to you. We will not give third parties access to our Google Analytics account and data. This does not include our website host and other parties who assist us in the operation of our website and business, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.  Furthermore, we may release information to comply with law or requests by law enforcement agencies.

Google Analytics’ functionality is based on first party cookies, which are stored on each visitor’s computer.You can delete or disable cookies anytime by using your browser. In Chrome you can delete your cookies by clicking on the three vertical dots in the top right corner, and then click on “More tools” and then on “Clear browsing data…”.
