With your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on visitors’ computers, to help Sustainable Aylesbury analyse how visitors use the website. The information generated by the cookie about the visitors’ use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

On this website, IP anonymisation has been activated. The IP addresses of Google users from European Union member states, or from other states contracting to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, will be shortened. Only in exceptional cases will a complete IP address be transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of Sustainable Aylesbury, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating the website for Sustainable Aylesbury, in order to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage for Sustainable Aylesbury.

Google will not associate the IP address transferred in the context of Google Analytics with any other data held by Google. For further information please visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

The legal basis for enabling Google Analytics is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR). Google Analytics will only be activated if you explicitly allow it.

The legal basis for the subsequent processing of the data collected via Google Analytics such as usage, analysis and storage is Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR. The legitimate interest Sustainable Aylesbury pursues is the improvement and optimization of the website and the advertisement strategy for the benefit of the website visitors.

You have the right to object at any time to such processing. To exercise this right you may at any time download and install the aforementioned browser plug-in or you may at any time deactivate the use of tracking cookies in the tracking cookies settings below.

This website uses “Google Signals”. Google Signals is an update provided by Google as part of Google Analytics and enables a cross device tracking only of those users who are logged into their Google account and who have activated “Ads Personalization” in their Google account settings. When using Google Signals aggregated data from website users who are logged into their Google account and who have activated “Ads Personalization” in their Google account is included in Google Analytics reports. The aggregated data Google Signals generates for Sustainable Aylesbury allows for Sustainable Aylesbury no conclusion as to the identity of any such user. On an aggregate basis, Google Signals provides Sustainable Aylesbury with information about how a visitor interacts with this website from multiple browsers and multiple devices.

Google account users can control their advertisement experience and can deactivate “Ads Personalization” at any time in their Google account settings.
