  • Called pages
  • Your behavior on the pages (eg, clicks, scrolling behavior, and length of stay)

This data is transmitted to a Google server in the USA. Google complies with the data protection provisions of the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement.
Google Analytics stores cookies in your web browser for a period of two years since your last visit.
