Google Analytics 
Most of the websites you surf on the web collect data from your entry in order to make statistics on the use of that website. On this website we use Google Analytics (GA). GA has a strict privacy guideline and only collects data anonymously. When you enter this website (as well as many others) GA robot gets your IP (to control if you are a new user or not) and gets information about where you are, what pages you visit and for how long. It also gets information about the browser and operative system you're using, your screen resolution, colours configuration, version of flash (if any) and connection speed. All this information that Google gets may also help the webmaster to know what kind of technology the users have, so that he can adapt the features on his website to better meet their needs. But in no way it is possible to find out what person used the website, because no personal information can be collected and the IP address changes all the time for most people. So the only thing GA can tell is that at a certain time, a certain computer with certain characteristics logged onto this website and visited certain pages for a certain period of time. Besides, all that data goes to a statistics chart and you can find out, for example, how many people entered your website using Windows or Linux, and how many people are using Firefox or IE, and how many people logged in from the area of Rome or Toronto. But it is not possible to see all the data from one single connection. Moreover, to secure your privacy still more, we have implemented the IP Anonymization offered by GA so your IP is truncated to keep your privacy still more.
