The website uses Google Analytics to map the traffic on the website. The data collected is used to improve the website. If legally obliged to do so, Google must transfer the information it collects by cookies or other means to third parties. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if the information is processed by Google on behalf of third parties. The University will not use the traffic data to track individual users.

In addition, embedded content is used on a number of pages. This could, for example, be a YouTube video, a widget or a social media button. When this information is loaded, cookies from the provider that supplies the information may also be transferred. The University of Groningen is not responsible for these cookies.
