Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytic service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google uses cookies to help us analyze how visitors use the Direcly website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Direcly website (including your IP address) will

be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the Direcly website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Direcly website, compiling reports on your activity for us and third parties who help operate and provide services related to the Direcly website. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of these cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser as described in this Cookie Policy. Further, you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

More information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or at google.de/intl/en_uk/policies.

Please note that on the Direcly Platform, Google Analytics code is supplemented by _gat._anonymizeIp to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking).
