Google Analytics

Elizabeth Barlo uses Google Analytics. This is a program that helps us analyse how visitors use our website. Based on this information we can improve our website. Google Analytics collects data anonymously and reports web trends without identifying individual visitors.

Google Analytics mainly uses first-party cookies to report on visitor interactions on our website. These cookies are used to store non-personally identifiable information. Browsers do not share first-party cookies across domains.

Every computer and device connected to the Internet is assigned an Internet Protocol (IP) address. IP addresses are usually assigned in country-based blocks and can often be used to identify the country, state, and city from which a computer is connecting to the Internet. Because IP addresses need to be used by websites in order for the Internet to function, we have access to the IP addresses of our website visitors regardless of whether or not they use Google Analytics.

Google Analytics does not share your actual IP address information with us. Additionally, a method known as IP masking gives us the option to tell Google Analytics to use only a portion of an IP address, rather than the entire address, for geo-location.

To provide you with more choice on how your data is collected by Google Analytics, Google has developed the “Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on”. The add-on instructs the Google Analytics JavaScript not to send any information about the website visit to Google Analytics.

If you want to opt-out, download and install the add-on for your current web browser here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
