We use Google Analytics to measure which articles on TrendingTopics.at are accessed, how often and for how long, and which devices and browsers (eg iPhone, Android, Firefox, Chrome) our users access to the website. This is important feedback for us, so that we learn which content is well received by the users and with which devices they prefer to come to the website.

Google Analytics uses the so-called “cookies” – text files that are stored on your computer and that allow analysis of the way you use a particular website. The information generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there for 16 months.

The only personal data recorded is the IP address. It is, however, pseudonymized before being stored by Google by deleting the last 8 bits of the IP address. If you do not want that, you can stop it via the browser add-on offered by Google – find it here.
