Google Site Search and Google Analytics
An IP address is classed as personal information because it can be traced to specific hardware and thus to an individual. NIPH uses Google Analytics’ tracking code which anonymises the IP address before the information is stored and processed by Google. Therefore, the stored IP address cannot be used to identify the individual user. Read more on Google’s website about which cookies are used.
