  • No Sale of Personal Data: We are firmly committed to not selling your personal data to third parties under any circumstances. Your personal information is kept confidential and is only used as described in this privacy policy.

Google Analytics collects information such as the frequency of visits to the site, the pages visited, and the websites visited before coming to ours. We use the information obtained from Google Analytics solely to improve our website and our services. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit our site, rather than your name or other personal identification information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personal data. Although Google Analytics installs a permanent cookie in your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit our site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone other than Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to our site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and Google’s Privacy Policy.

At the International DISC Institute, we take the protection of your personal information seriously and only share data in accordance with our strict privacy policies and applicable laws.

  1. Google Analytics

The International DISC Institute uses Google Analytics, a web analysis tool provided by Google, to better understand how visitors interact with our website. Here’s how and why we use this tool:

  • Functionality of Google Analytics: Google Analytics allows us to collect and analyze information about how visitors use our site. This includes data such as the number of visitors, the most visited pages, the time they spend on the site, and how they arrived at it. This tool uses cookies to anonymously collect information and generate website trend reports without identifying individual visitors.

  • Use of Data by Google Analytics: The data collected by Google Analytics is used to better understand the behavior and preferences of our visitors. This allows us to improve the structure, content, and functionality of our website, ensuring that it is more useful and accessible for users. The information collected also helps us evaluate the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns and promotions.

  • Protection of Your Privacy: Although Google Analytics collects your IP address, we do not associate it with any other data that can personally identify you. We have implemented additional privacy measures, such as IP masking, to ensure that your IP address is processed anonymously. In addition, we do not allow Google to use or share our analysis data with other Google services.

  • Control of Data Collection: You have control over the collection of data by Google Analytics. If you prefer not to be tracked by Google Analytics, you can download and install the Google Analytics browser opt-out add-on, available for Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and Opera. This add-on prevents the analytics tool from collecting data about your visits to websites.

In summary, the use of Google Analytics by the International DISC Institute is carried out with the goal of continuously improving our website and the services we offer, while at the same time protecting your privacy and respecting your preferences regarding the use of your data.
