Privacy legislation - the "Cookie Law"
As described above in the official disclaimer Google Analytics must place on their website, this website uses Google Analytics. This program provides important statistics on visitors' numbers, pages visited, traffic sources and other essential information which helps us to continuously improve this website for its visitors. These statistics are anonymous and cannot be traced back to a certain individual or user. We don't use any 'behavioural tracking', which provides special content on the basis of your clicking behaviour. Your surfing behaviour shall remain absolutely anonymous.
Google Analytics uses a cookie, which is a small file which is saved on your computer. In the new Dutch privacy legislation functional and technical first-party cookies (e.g. for saving passwords) are allowed without the user's consent, provided the obligation to inform visitors about this is met with. First-party cookies are placed by the website's owner and are, in most cases, important for the functionality of the website. Third-party cookies, however, are cookies which don't originate from the website's owner, but from third parties, e.g. advertisers or ad platforms. These cookies are no longer allowed without your expressed prior consent. First party cookies which store personal data which are not strictly necessary, also need permission.
IP addresses are masked
According to the official regulations, the Google Analytics cookie is a first-party cookie, i.e. that the data are officially owned by Synerlogic and not by Google. This cookie will not be used for ads or other commercial purposes. Besides that, Synerlogic has configured Google Analytics in such a way that IP addresses have been anonymised, so that data can never be traced back to you or your IP address. Furthermore the Synerlogic Analytics account was configured in such a way that the information may not be shared with others. Thus the Synerlogic Analytics Cookie is a functional first-party cookie without privacy issues, which is essential to visitors because it ensures the quality of k-apex.nl. The Analytics cookie remains valid for 6 months.
No other cookies
On our websites no other cookies beside the aforementioned Analytics cookies are used.
If you would rather block the Analytics script entirely you can download a Google Analytics opt-out plug-in here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. With this plug-in your visit will no longer count towards the statistics of any website using Google Analytics.
