    Cookies are an example of a tracking technology. They are small text files that are placed on your computer when you visit a digital platform, which are then used as a means of identifying your computer for the purposes described below.

    Cookies set by the owner of a digital platform are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by other people are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable the third party to provide features or functionality on or through the digital platform (like analytics, advertising and videos). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your device both when it visits our digital platform, and when it visits certain other digital platforms.

    Google Analytics cookies

    Do you use Google analytics or other website analytics tools?

    This touchpoint uses Google Analytics, an analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help the touchpoint analyze how users use the touchpoint. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the touchpoint (including your IP address) will be transmitted to Google in the USA. Next, no matter where the IP address originates from (Member States of the European Union, other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, or elsewhere) Google anonymizes the last octet of the IP address (for IPv4 addresses) or the last 80 bits (for IPv6 addresses) (a process known as “IP masking”). Google does this because we have activated its “anonymizeIP” system for all countries. Finally Google stores the anonymized data on servers in the USA. Google uses this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the touchpoint, compiling reports on website activity for us, and providing us with other services relating to touchpoint activity and internet usage. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data they hold.

    As explained in the table above, you may prevent Google from collecting and using data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in here .
