SECTION 2: WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT
We use analytics cookies to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site and will not be able to monitor its performance. Without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable. Cookies in use: _ga, _gat, _gid.
We use preference cookies to remember whether a visitor has minimized or closed the pop-up email list box. Cookie in use: boxzilla_pageviews.
EMBEDDED CONTENT FROM OTHER WEBSITES
We use Google Analytics to record information about the pages a user has seen, for example the URL of the page, time of day, device used, etc. The information that we collect is anonymized and sent to Google Analytics for analysis. Google Analytics mainly uses first-party cookies to report on visitor interactions on this website. Users may disable cookies or delete any individual cookie. In addition, Google Analytics supports an optional browser add-on that – once installed and enabled – disables measurement by Google Analytics for any site a user visits. Note that this add-on only disables Google Analytics measurement. Google Analytics also collects Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to provide and protect the security of the service, and to give website owners a sense of which country, state, or city in the world their users come from (also known as “IP geolocation”). See Google Analytics security and usage of data page.
