Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States . Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the placement of Google Analytics cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. In doing this, you will safeguard your right to disagree with any future collection, processing and use of data by Google Analytics. For this purpose, you may install the Google Analytics deactivating add-on for browsers to prevent Google Analytics from storing any information on web sites you visited.

Social networks

2 clicks for data security: The “like it” buttons can help you to easily share interesting content from our webpage with your friends and colleagues. However, when integrated without an activation method, such buttons may already lead to a transfer of information to the operators of network platforms, including the URL of the current page plus an identifier that can be linked directly to a user’s Facebook, Twitter or Google account. In order to protect your data security, 7layers provides you with the option of choosing whether to actively use these buttons (and thereby accept the data transfer) or not.

By default, social “like it” buttons on the 7layers website are not activated. They can be activated with a 1st click on the button of your choice. With the 2nd click you can then send your referral for the specific page which you wish to recommend. Use the 2-click process each time you want to refer a page.
