  • Web analytics cookies
    The Foundation Save The Native Forest (STNF) uses Google Analytics to collect anonymous data about how visitors interact with our website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. Google Analytics is a web statistics utility that allows website owners to understand how visitors interact with their website. Google Analytics works with tracking cookies that can be used to determine how visitors end up on a website and what they do exactly. This concerns data such as number of unique visitors, number of visits, number of page views, average visit duration, viewed pages and typed search terms in Google. These cookies are the so-called first-party cookies, they only follow the visiting behavior of the website itself. This information is only used by us and not resold or given away. Nor do these cookies record personal data. The The Foundation Save The Native Forest (STNF) use Google Analytics to display a variety of reports with information about how visitors interact with the website without identifying individual visitors. Based on this information, we improve the content and navigation of the website.

    The information about your surfing behavior that comes from the cookies is stored on Google's servers in the United States. Google may provide this information to third parties if Google is legally obliged to do so, or if these third parties process the information on behalf of Google. Google will not combine your IP address with other data held by Google.

    This site uses IP anonymization, which means that your IP address is shortened before it is shipped to the server of Google in US. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to the Google server and then abbreviated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website owner to analyze your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to the use of the website and internet usage for the website operator. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent cookies from being saved by setting up your browser software accordingly. However, this may result in you not being able to fully use all functions of this website. If you want, you can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data (including your IP address) through the browser plug-in; download and install.
