Use of IP address
A unique number called the Internet Protocol Address (IP Address) is assigned to each computer and device connected to the Internet. These numbers are usually assigned collectively in country-specific blocks, so the IP address can often be used to identify the country, state, and city from which your computer connects to the Internet. The Google Analytics service keeps records of IP addresses of website users to enable website owners track the parts of the world from which website visitors come from.
Google uses this information to evaluate how a site is used by the user, to create reports of user activity on the site for the website operators, and to provide other services related to user activity on the site.
Google may disclose this information to third parties, e.g. to comply with applicable law or to process this information for Google.
Google will not associate your IP address with other data stored by Google.
The user can disable cookies by specifying the appropriate browser settings. It should be remembered that after disabling cookies, some elements of the website may not function properly.
By using this website, you agree to the processing of your data by Google for the purposes and needs described above.
This website uses Google Analytics, including its marketing related functions — it is a Google Inc. web analysis service (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files saved on your computer that allow to analyse how you use the website.
Google Analytics works with activated IP anonymization, the so-called IP masking. This means that the Google user IP address is shortened in the Member States of the European Union or in other countries covered by the agreement for the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, such as technical failures occurring in Europe, the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there.
With the use of Google’s IP anonymization method, the full IP address is never saved to a hard disk, as anonymization takes place almost immediately after receiving the request in working memory. The IP address provided by the user’s browser is not combined with other Google data.
Upon the request of the website’s administrator, Google will use this information to analyse your way of using the website pursuant to Art. 6(1f) of GDPR to prepare reports on website activity and provide the website administrator with further services related to the use of website and Internet, such as advertising display functions, as well as Google Analytics reports on demographic characteristics and preferences.
Google may transfer your data to third parties whenever this is legally required or if third parties process this data based on the instructions from Google, however personal data will not be used for this purpose.
Google Analytics reports on demographic characteristics and preferences, such as age groups or interest groups, use data obtained by Google through tailored advertising and data from third-party providers.
