9.    Web analytics

The GF Websites use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., a company located in the USA, www.gooogle.com ("Google"). The features of the service that GF uses are "Universal Analytics" features. They make it possible to attribute data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID, thus giving GF the ability to analyze the activities of a user on all devices. Google Analytics uses Cookies which are text files placed on your computer, to help the GF Websites to measure and analyze how visitors use the site.

The information generated by the Cookies about your use of the GF Websites (including your IP address) is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on these websites, Google will truncate your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. We would like to point out that, on these GF Websites, Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymization in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

Google complies with the data protection rules of the "EU-U.S. Privacy Shield" and "Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield" arrangements and is registered with the "Privacy Shield" program of the US Department of Commerce and the European Commission and Swiss Administration. The IP address identified from your browser by Google Analytics will not be merged with other data collected by Google. On behalf of GF, Google uses this information to analyze your use of the GF Websites, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide other services for GF related to the use of the GF Websites and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required by law or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.

GF uses Google Analytics in order to pursue its legitimate interests of building a service that meets the customer’s needs, enabling statistical analysis and promoting our website efficiently. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of the GF Websites. You can also opt-out from being tracked by Google Analytics with effect for the future by downloading and installing Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Addon for your current web browser: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Opt-out cookies prevent your data from being collected during any future visits to the relevant GF Websites. In order to prevent the collection of data by Universal Analytics across multiple devices, you must opt out on all the systems that you use.

10.    Siteimprove

The GF Websites use Siteimprove, a web analytics service provided by Siteimprove Inc., a company located in Denmark, https://siteimprove.com/ ("Siteimprove"). Siteimprove uses Cookies to analyze website usage. The information generated by the Cookie is transmitted to a Siteimprove server and stored there. Siteimprove may collect statistics about site usage, such as when a visitor last visited the website, or track the sequence of pages a visitor looks at during his visit. This information is then used to improve the user experience on the website and enable visitors to find relevant information quicker. The Siteimprove cookies contain a randomly generated ID used to recognize the browser when a visitor visits a page. The cookie contains no personal information and is used for web analytics only. We would like to point out that, on these GF Websites, Siteimprove has been extended to include IP anonymization in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
