What is it?
Google Analytics uses an IP Anonymisation mechanism that automatically masks a portion of each visitor’s IP (Internet Protocol), effectively making it impossible to identify a particular website visitor via the sole IP address. The IP Anonymisation make all the website visitors’’ IP addresses anonymized before any storage or processing takes place.
Why we use IP Anonymisation?
We have opted for an IP Anonymisation at the earliest stage before any processing takes place, to obtain information on the traffic of our site and at the same time ensure that your data is not in jeopardy since it becomes anonymous in such a way that any data subject is no longer identifiable.
