2.2. Web Analytics
Web analytics is not linked to a personal account
Novatech AS reserves the right to use logs from our web server to generate statistics on visits. These statistics allow us to improve the information on our website.

In practice, it will not be possible to identify the visitors from the stored parameters. Therefore, the statistics are anonymous. This information can, therefore, not be linked to you as an individual.
The basis for processing the generation of anonymous statistics is the Privacy Regulation, Article 6 (1) (f), which allows us to process information that is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest that outweighs the consideration of the individual's privacy. The legitimate interest is to improve and further develop information on our websites.
