1. Using Kaizen Institute’s website without Providing Personal Information
You can use our website without providing any personal information. The following cases do not relate usage data to you at any time.
1.2 Usage analysis on our website Google Universal Analytics. How does Google Universal Analytics collect usage data?
This website uses Google Universal Analytics, a web-analysis service by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Universal Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. A cookie is a text file that is stored on your computer and enables analysis of the website’s usage. This permanent cookie (see paragraph on cookies in this privacy statement) contains a combination of random numbers for recognition of our website by the browser. The information on the usage of this website generated by the cookie is usually sent to, and stored on a Google server located in the USA.
If this cookie is missing, e.g. because it is deleted after a session, Google Universal Analytics uses other methods to recognize the browser to continue attributing the user behavior to a pseudonym. These methods are also used on other devices (e.g. tablets, smart phones) for general behavior analysis of a person who uses multiple devices.
Anonymization of the IP Address
IP anonymization is enabled on our website, i.e. though the server sends the full IP address of your device to the Google server, Google truncates the address before storing and thus efficiently anonymizes it.
For details on the anonymization of the IP address see https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=en
Purpose of Google Universal Analytics
On behalf of the provider of this website, Google will use this information to analyze the usage of the website, to create reports on website activities, and to provide further services to the website provider related to the usage of the website and of the internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser through Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.
If you use a browser on a PC, Mac, or any other device that plug-ins may be installed on, you can prevent the retrieval of the website- and usage-related data generated by Google Universal Analytics (including your IP address) and the distribution of this data by Google by installing this plug-in: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. The plug-in blocks Google Web Analysis for all websites you visit.
