Google Analytics

Certain information on the use of Lund University’s web pages is sent to Google due to our use of Google Analytics. However, we use the anonymising version, so no information that can be linked to an individual user is forwarded to Google.

Siteimprove

We also use the Siteimprove quality assurance tool, which – just like Google – includes an analysis component that gives us a basis for improving user experience of the website. Siteimprove therefore stores certain information, but without it being linked to an individual visitor.
