Improving the website
We are constantly working to improve sandvik.com. In order to do this, we use Google Analytics to analyze our visitors' behavior on an anonymous and aggregate level.
The information about your use of this website is transmitted to Google anonymously. We will not seek to link your IP address with any personal identifiable information about you. In fact, the last digits in your IP address will be truncated before it is sent to Google.
The behavioral data collected is processed to compile statistical reports on website activity. The intent is not to look at the behavior of an individual user. Instead, aggregate statistics are reported, like "How many users have used the top navigation during the last week?"
Reports like this are then used to help us take decisions about website improvements.
The analytics cookie is a first-party cookie, which means that it's set by crushology.sandvik.
