The full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the US only in exceptional cases.)
On behalf of the website provider, 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 to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
Further information about the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found under the Google Analytics terms of service or at Google’s Marketing Platform. Please note that, on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “gat._anonymizeIp();”. This is to ensure the anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18, except as noted below. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal data, please email us. If we become aware that we have collected personal data from children without verification of parental consent, we take steps to remove this information from our servers.
