Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites.

Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.
For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. By means of this application your IP address is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our website for us.
If your browser preferences allow the setting of cookies, Google Analytics places a cookie on your information technology system. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. As you visit individual pages of this website into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, your browser being used will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as your IP address, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.

These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
You can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by changing your browser settings to permanently deny the setting of cookies. This would prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on your information device.

The data collected through the Jetpack component is not used to identify you, personally, without obtaining prior separate express consent from you. The data comes also to the notice of Quantcast. Quantcast uses the data for the same purposes as Automattic.
You can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by changing your browser preferences to deny the setting of cookies used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. This would also prevent Automattic/Quantcast from setting a cookie on your information technology system.
