Web analytics (Google Analytics)
This website uses Google Analytics, a service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA).
The information generated about your use of the website is sent to servers in the United States and stored there by Google. Louwers Advocaten makes use of the option to depersonalise the IP address, i.e. your IP address is shortened by Google. Thus tracking at the individual level is made technically impossible.
Google will use this information to evaluate how you use the website, to compile reports on the activities on the website and to offer other services with respect to the use of the website and the internet. Google will not associate your IP address with other data held by Google.
Besides rejecting cookies through your browser you can also use the Google Analytics Opt-Out Add-on in your browser. This prevents Google Analytics from collecting information about your website visits.
The website uses social plugins from LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and AddThis.
Once you visit a page of the Web site that contains a plug-in, your browser connects to the provider of the plug-in. This provider will acquire information about the pages of the website you have visited with your IP address.
If during the visit to our website you are signed in to LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and / or Google+, your visit may be linked to the appropriate account. If you use the plug-ins, for example by clicking the LinkedIn 'Share' button or the Facebook 'Like' icon, the information concerned will be sent by the browser to the provider and stored there.
Even if you do not have an account at LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter or Google+, or if you have signed out prior to the visit to the website, the possibility exists that at least your IP address is passed to the provider(s) and is stored there.
The purpose and scope of the data collected via the plug-ins, as well as the further processing, the further use and the duration of storage is exclusively determined by the providers of the plug-ins. You can read more about this in the privacy statement of the respective providers. Direct links to the privacy statement of these providers are listed below.
