Regarding the previous explanation on third-party cookies, for your peace of mind, when Google Analytics collects personal data such as your gender, date of birth or post code, it does so anonymously and you cannot be identified as a person. The data cannot be matched to your personal details, i.e. name, address or insurance policy number. In addition, it does not process your IP, it simply stores it in abbreviated form. The data collected is stored by Google always within the European Economic Area.
