Visitor data and Google Marketing Platform

We use Google Analytics to track general visitor data and to analyze how effective our advertisements are. We also use Google Analytics to measure the behavior of (anonymous) visitors on our website. The data is therefore used for statistical analyses of visiting and clicking behavior on the website. We also optimize the operation of the website. We have set up Google Analytics as privacy-friendly as possible, which means, among other things, that IP addresses and other identifiable information are anonymized and data is sent over a secure connection. We also use other analysis and optimization tools available within the Google Marketing Platform. Including, but not limited to, Google Ads and Google Tag Manager. We have a processing agreement with Google.
