Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on the user’s computer allowing analysis of the website usage. The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, location and frequency of the user’s visit to the website, including the user’s IP address, are transmitted to Google in the United States and stored there.

The Connect-it-Boat product uses Google Analytics with the addition of “_gat._anonymizeIp”. This add-on shortens the IP address of the user within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, thereby making it anonymous.

Google uses the information gathered to analyze the use of the Connect-it-Boat product to provide reports on website activity and additional services related to t-matix’s Connect it Boat. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

The user can avoid the installation of cookies by appropriately adjusting their Browser software. Please be aware of the fact, that in this case it is possible that you will not be able to fully enjoy all the features of the Connect-it-Boat product.

Furthermore, Google offers a deactivation add-on for the most popular browsers, which gives the user more control over which data Google collects on the websites visited by the user. The add-on informs the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no website visit information should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the Google Analytics Disable Add-on does not prevent information from being transmitted to t-matix or any other web analytics services we may use. More information about installing the browser add-on is available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
