2. Web analysis

What´s the point of this? We use web analysis tools to collect statistical usage and user behaviour data in relation to our website so that we can optimise our online offerings: Which website has a person come from?

Can you prevent this data processing? Yes, you can. You can prevent these sorts of analysis by changing your data protection settings.
