The provider of Google Analytics is Google Inc, a company of the holding company Alphabet Inc, based in the USA.

In addition to the data listed in section 4, we may receive the following information:
– navigation path of a visitor to the website,
– time spent on the website or a subpage,
– the subpage on which the website is left,
– the country, region or city from which access is made,
– the device (type, version, colour depth, resolution, width and height of the browser window), and

The information is used to evaluate your use of the Web Services, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to the use of the Web Services and the internet for purposes of market research and need-based design of the Web Services.
