We also use Google Analytics on our website. This is a Web analysis service offered by Google Inc. that enables the generation of detailed statistics on website traffic and its sources. We use Google Analytics solely for statistical purposes, such as in order to track how many users have clicked on a particular item of product information. Google Analytics is based on cookies and records information about your use of our website including your IP address. To prevent users being identified by their IP addresses, we use a special code to ensure that your IP address is recorded solely in truncated and therefore anonymised form. It is no longer possible to identify individual users with this truncated IP address. The information recorded by Google Analytics is transmitted to Google Inc. based in the United States. If you do not wish for this to happen, you can prevent this information from being recorded and transferred to Google Inc. by downloading and installing the plug-in available at the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
