Cookies

On this website we use cookies to anonymously identify the device you are using in order to improve your experience of the site.

A cookie is a small text file that is saved in your web browser. It allows our system to remember your device when you visit our website. No personal identifiable data is stored in cookies, only an anonymous id number.

If you for some reason would like to prevent this website (or any other website) from setting cookies in your browser, you can do this in your browser settings. You can also install a plugin in your browser that blocks all cookies from Google Analytics. The plugin is available for most modern browsers.

Here is why and how we use cookies on walter-tools.com:

Improving the website

We are constantly working to improve walter-tools.com. In order to do this, we use Google Analytics to analyze our visitors' behavior on an anonymous and aggregate level. Make sure you add the systems you use on your site.

Anonymous data

The information about your use of this website is transmitted to Google anonymously. We will not seek to link your IP address with any personal identifiable information about you. In fact, the last digits in your IP address will be truncated before it is sent to Google.

Aggregate reports

The behavioral data collected is processed to compile statistical reports on website activity. The intent is not to look at the behavior of an individual user. Instead, aggregate statistics are reported, like "How many users have used the top navigation during the last week?"

Reports like this are then used to help us take decisions about website improvements.

Analytics Cookies

The analytics cookie is a first-party cookie, which means that it is set by walter-tools.com. (The id number is different for every site) e.g.

Name || Content || Life span

_ga || Anonymous id number, i.e. "1.2.838838867.1359565579161" || 2 years

Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies that enable an analysis to be made of your use of the website. The information generated by a cookie about your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP is abbreviated in advance within member states of the European union or other states that are signed up to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the USA, where it is abbreviated.
Google will use this information, on the instructions of the operator of this website, to analyse your use of the site, to compile reports on website activity and to provide further services in connection with the use of the website and the Internet on behalf of the website operator. The IP address transferred by your browser for the purposes of Google Analytics is not associated with other Google data.
You can prevent cookies from being saved by means of the relevant setting in your browser software. You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the plug-in available from the following link:
http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
With regard to the discussion on the use of the analysis tool using the full IP address, we would point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the “_anonymizeIp()” extension and therefore IP addresses are only processed further in abbreviated form in order to prevent them from being directly associated with individuals.
