Collecting and processing automatically generated statistical data

The information that is processed consists of, for example, the type of device you use (desktop, mobile, tablet), your IP address (your device’s internet address that is often linked to your general location), which browser you use, the operating system you use, the pages you visit on our website and where you came from before landing on our website. This is depersonalized data and it’s impossible to trace it back to you. This information is gathered through placing analytical cookies. You can read more about this in our Cookie Statement.

Google offers us products we can use to measure how many visitors we have on our website and supplies us with some advertisements. To be able to do this they have to place a cookie.
When another company places a cookie, we will refer you via a link to their privacy statement or cookie statement. That way you can read for yourself what these companies do with the cookies they place.
Log Files: We collect information through server log files, but also by deploying tracking technologies within the Site, such as pixel tags.

We collect IP for a limited time and for specific purposes. One is to better understand your geographic location (country, region, and language) and therefore be able to provide the Services in your own language and relevant to your place of origin. Second, we use automated tools to analyse IP addresses and flag those that are fraudulent.
