We use Google Analytics, a popular web analysis service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics uses cookie modules to help us understand the way visitors use our website. It does so by counting visitors and giving us insights on their overall behavior – such as the time spent on the website or the average number of pages accessed. Information generated by the cookie module on the use of our website (including IP address) will be sent and stored by Google on servers in the United States. On this website, IP anonymization is activated so that the IP address of Google users in member states of the European Union or other parties to this Agreement in the European Economic Zone is shortened prior to being sent. In exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to the Google server in the USA to be shortened there. Google will use this information to assess the usage of your website, the compiling of web activity reports and the delivery of other services related to the website activity and internet usage. Google can also send this information to third parties in case this is required by law or in case such third parties process the information on behalf of Google. Google undertakes not to associate the IP address with other data held by Google. If Adobe Flash is installed on your computer (on most computers) and you are using audio or video players of Out-Law.com, Google Analytics will attempt to store several additional data on the computer. This data is known as a local shared object or cookie Flash module. This helps us analyzing the popularity of our media files. We can count the total number of times each file is repeated, how many people watch the videos until the end and how many people give up when reaching halfway through. The Adobe website provides tools for controlling Flash cookies on the computer. By using this website, you agree upon Google’s processing of your personal data in the manner and for the aforementioned purposes.
