Google Analytics supports an optional browser add-on that - once installed and enabled - disables measurement by Google Analytics for any site you visit. This add-on only disables Google Analytics measurement. You can use Ads Settings to manage the Google ads you see and disable personalisation. Even if you opt out of personalised ads, you may still see ads based on factors such as your general location derived from your IP address, your browser type, and your search terms. You can also manage many companies' cookies used for online advertising via the consumer choice tools created under self-regulation programs in many countries, such as the US-based choices page or the EU-based Your Online Choices. Finally, you can manage cookies in your web browser. For more information visit and read our Cookie Policy.


Should you have any privacy-related questions, please contact us at Should you have any concerns or complaints that we are not able to resolve, you can contact the Norwegian Data Protection Authority (“Datatilsynet”). We update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in our data processing practices. Because we are constantly adding new services and features, we may not make an immediate upgrade of the Privacy Policy unless material changes occur. We encourage you to periodically review for the latest information on our privacy practices.
