STATISTICS AND EVENT REGISTRATIONS

Oslo Cancer Cluster collects information about visitors to websites. Statistics are used to improve and further develop webpages. Your name and email and place of work are only used to sign you up for our events. Data collected for the events are names, emails and place of work, and may also contain other, optional fields. Data for event registration is stored for one month after the event before it is erased from our database.

We use the tool Google Analytics to analyse the information collected.

The statistics can tell us:

Google Analytics uses cookies that register users’ IP addresses, and that provide information on the individual user’s browsing activity. Oslo Cancer Cluster anonymises the user’s IP address before this information is stored and processed by Google. This means that the IP address cannot be used to identify the individual user. In addition all the data is processed in groups, not at the individual level.
