Data collected automatically

This includes the individual pages visited, an anonymised IP address, the device, browser and the website you came from. Google can also collect demographic and interests information from the DoubleClick cookie, if it’s present on your device.
When we use interactive maps that show your position, we will do so only with your consent. If you provide consent, the map will use the coordinates of your current location but this data will not be sent to us or stored.
