5. Web Analysis - Google Analytics
This Website may make use of Google Analytics, a web analysis tool provided by Google, Inc., a company with headquarters at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA ("Google"). This tool helps the website Owner determine the level of user involvement on the Website and provides reports which the Owner can consult regarding the ways Users interact with the Website for the purpose of optimising it. Google Analytics gathers this information anonymously; that is, it informs the Website Owner of trends without providing user identification.
Google Analytics uses its own "cookies"—text files stored on your computer—in order to track User interaction on the Website. These cookies store information about parameters such as the time the website was visited, if the User has visited the website on previous occasions or which website recommended the User to visit this particular Website. Its browsers do not share first party cookies from the same domain.
Any device or computer terminal connected to Internet has an individual number assigned to it known as the “Internet Protocol address” or “IP address”. Since this number is normally assigned by country, IP addresses are often used to identify the country, state and city from which access to the internet is being made. Google Analytics records and stores the IP address of Users who visit this Website in order to provide the Owner with information about world locations from which the Website is being accessed . This method is called “IP geo-localisation”. Google Analytics does not provide any information regarding the actual IP address itself.
Google Analytics´ conditions of service prohibit tracking or obtaining personal data which would lead to personal identification (ex. name, email address, invoicing details or other related data) through Google Analytics or by associating personal information with web analysis data.
The Owner may control the amount of information that Google can use and decide whether it wants Google to use this data or not, indicated on the options menu for sharing data with Google Analytics, which then serves to improve Google´s products and services.
