Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to collect visitor information. This means that we gain insight into all visitors to our website. This is an internal tool for us to see whether certain efforts and actions work and what the peak moments of certain institutions are.

We have anonymized all IP addresses that we collect through Google Analytics. This means that we do not forward your full IP address to Google Analytics. As a result, we have no specific insight into where you are.
The other data from Google Analytics cannot be traced back to people.

With this plugin, your visit no longer counts in the statistics of all websites that use Google Analytics.

Statistics on the server

No statistics are kept on our server. We have disabled this in consultation with the hosting party. Our hosting party still keeps (limited) IP addresses of visitors. These IP addresses are not directly accessible via a website. Our hosting party does this in terms of security. If an attack takes place, it is essential for our hosting party to be able to trace the “perpetrator”. This is only possible based on an IP address.
