1.2 Exclusive use of the publicly accessible area
You can visit the publicly accessible Bridge websites without revealing any personal data. For statistical purposes, the information listed in 1.1 is analyzed in a manner that does not allow Bridge to identify you as an individual. In order to ensure this, the IP address and other characteristics that we could use to identify you are removed during analysis. This anonymous information is analyzed at an aggregate level and only used to help Bridge understand trends and patterns and improve its websites. Additional data is only collected if you explicitly and voluntarily provide this information on Bridge websites (e.g. when signing up for a newsletter or completing a form). Conclusions can also be drawn as to your identity if you are registered as a Business Partner. For more information, see Cookies.
