Google Analytics uses cookies that are stored on the user/visitor’s computer, to analyze the use and navigation on the website. Google Analytics is used on the PIPECODES website for web analysis purposes exclusively with an add-on that provides an anonymized IP function”.

The user ID is not named, nor is personal data provided to Google.
