Only in exceptional cases under this scenario will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

On behalf of the operator of the website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide other services related to website activity and Internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Such data collection and storage can be contested at any time with effect for the future.
