The information generated by the cookie about your use of the MightyHive website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the MightyHive website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the MightyHive website, compiling reports on your activity for us and third parties who help operate and provide services related to the MightyHive website. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
