MPG also collects information through Automatic Data Collection Technologies. The website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to gather website traffic information (how often users visit a site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used before arriving to a site) and spreads such information to Google servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate their IP address with any other data held by Google.
Data storage and location
We only store your data no longer than we need it. For instance, we only store the last 10 locations (and delete all previous locations), but we keep your account data for as long as you stay with us.
Our servers are located in Amsterdam, Netherlands and includes 24h advanced security monitoring with ongoing scanning and removal of Malware protection, DDoS Attack protection and mitigation.
