Links to Other Web Sites
froglogic Web sites contain links to other Web sites. froglogic is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other Web sites.
Google Analytics and Leadfeeder
froglogic uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA.
On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is configured with “anonymize_ip” to be true to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking).
In addition, froglogic uses Leadfeeder. Leadfeeder is an analytics service that is based on Google Analytics data. It provides information on what companies visit the website and suggest possible sales leads based on this information. Leadfeeder recognises companies visiting the website. Leadfeeder does not match or recognize the visits of an individual person.
