We use Google Analytics in order to determine the number of visitors and their online behavior on our website.
Next to Google Analytics we use a tool to identify leads (prospective customers). This tool makes use of the information that Google Analytics provides. We use the tool to understand the visitors on our website better. This tool enriches the data it derives from Google Analytics. Google Analytics provides us with the network domains of companies that visit our website. This tool visualizes this information by correlating the company IP-address from visitors on our website with other publicly accessible information, such as Linkedln accounts. This tool does not capture or track individual (personal) data, but merely processes the company data and combines it with information from publicly accessible data sources. Information gathered via this tool remains anonymous. Using this tool enables us to tailor the communications to our prospects to ensure that we give relevant support and advice about our products and services.
