Personal data collected as part of the running of our websites is saved on servers maintained by Funbit and their service providers. Only AdO arena and Funbit have access to the collected data. A separate data handling agreement between AdO arena and Funbit regulates the information that they have access to and how they should handle it.

Website Analytics

AdO arena collect anonymous data about visitors to our websites. This allows us to analyse how our websites are being used in order to improve them and further develop them. For example, this data allows us to see how many visitors visit a page, how long their visit lasts, how they found our website and which web browser they are using.

Analytics only provides anonymous and aggregated data. Anonymous in this context means that we are unable to trace collected data back to a specific user. For example, IP addresses are collected, e.g., but only partially stored, e.g. 195.159.103.xx. Furthermore, these IP addresses are only ever analysed in aggregate form as a large group, rather than looking at individual addresses.

We use Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel on our websites. Information gathered from these tools is not shared with external companies.

Storing and handling this information is only allowed if the user has been informed and has provided their consent. The user should be notified of and consent to the information being collected, why it is being collected and how handles it (ekomloven § 2-7b).
