Privacy legislation and Analytics
As described below in the official statement that Google Analytics users must place on their website, this website uses Google Analytics. This tool provides important statistics on the number of visitors, the pages visited, the traffic sources and other essential information with which we can continuously improve this website for the users. These statistics are anonymous and cannot be traced back to a specific person or user. No use is made of "behavioral targeting" that allows you to see special content based on your click behavior; your surfing behavior remains completely anonymous. Data from contact forms is never processed or stored in Analytics.
Google Analytics uses a cookie, which is a small file that is stored on your computer. We have set up Google Analytics in accordance with privacy legislation, so that no prior permission from the user is required.
IP addresses are masked and data is not shared
The Google Analytics cookie is a "first party cookie", which means that the cookie is officially owned by Dries Degrande and not Google. This cookie is not used for advertising or other commercial purposes. Dries Degrande has a processor agreement with Google. In addition, Google Analytics is set up in such a way that IP addresses are made anonymous, so that data can never be traced back to you or your IP address. Furthermore, no information is shared from the Analytics account of Dries Degrande with Google or other parties. This makes Dries Degrande's Analytics cookie a non-privacy-sensitive first-party cookie that is necessary to guarantee the quality and security of driesdegrande.com. The Analytics cookie remains valid for 6 months.
If you prefer to block the Analytics script completely, you can download an opt-out plugin for Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. With this plugin, your visit no longer counts in the statistics of all websites that use Google Analytics.
