§6 Google Analytics
Google Analytics is a tool provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as: “Google”) which allows for analysing the traffic on websites. It uses cookie files.
The information obtained through a cookie (such as the time, location and frequency of visits on the website, including IP address) is usually sent to Google in the United States and stored there. Google uses the above information to assess the use of our website, create reports (in particular on the traffic on our website), and provide other related services. Google may transfer this information to other parties if such an obligation is required by the law or if these entities process data on behalf of Google.
Google Analytics allows us to analyse the use of our website and regularly improve it. Thanks to the obtained statistics, we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for users.
On our website, we use Google Analytics with the function of IP anonymisation. This means that your IP address is shortened, and thus anonymized by Google, already within EU member states or in another EEA country.
According to Google’s declarations, the IP address provided by your browser as a part of the Google Analytics service is not compiled by Google with other data.
In addition, it is possible to disable the Google Analytics service (Google offers in this respect the appropriate add-on to block the Google Analytics service in the most popular browsers). Information on this subject can be found at the following link:
If you enable this option, information about you visiting our website will not be sent to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent transferring such information to us (or other analytical tools used by us).
On our website, we present multimedia content downloaded from an external Internet source, www.youtube.com. As a result, by visiting our website you also connect to the YouTube server.
This service belongs to YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave, 94066 San Bruno, California, USA, which is a subsidiary of Google Inc.
The information provided by YouTube shows that data are sent to the YouTube server, including information about the websites you look through while watching a video on YouTube. If you are simultaneously logged in to YouTube, these data will be assigned to your account on this site. To avoid this, log out of YouTube before visiting our site.
