What cookies does Altor use
Altor uses Google Analytics to understand how visitors use its website and to improve it.
Google Analytics sets two cookies:
These cookies assigns every visitor with a unique, random identifier. It is used to count unique visitors and calculate session and campaign data for analytical reports. Through the data, we are never able to single out a single individuals’ browsing behaviour.
The _ga cookie expires after 2 years and _gid after 24 hours.
This cookie is used to throttle analytics request rates. It expires automatically after 1 minute.
The data collected by these cookies are transferred and stored by Google on servers in the USA. All data is used only for browsing analytics and to help Altor improve its website.
Google can transfer the data to third party if required by law, or in the case a third party processes the data for Google.
Google does not connect analytics data with other data that Google has for a given person.
Neither Altor, nor Google, will ever know who you are. Altor anonymizes the IP address when sent to Google and only ever see analytics data in aggregate. Google specifically bans tracking of personally identifiable data in its Analytics product.
