Cloudflare is a service of Cloudflare, Inc., 101 Townsend St., San Francisco, CA 94107, https://www.cloudflare.com (“Cloudflare”) that speeds up distribution of static and dynamic web content such as .html, .css, .js, and image files, to users. Cloudflare delivers content through a worldwide network of data centers called edge locations. When a user requests content that is being served with Cloudflare, the user is routed to the edge location that provides the lowest latency (time delay), so that content is delivered with the best possible performance.
- If the content is already in the edge location with the lowest latency, Cloudflare delivers it immediately.
- If the content is not in that edge location, Cloudflare retrieves it from an HTTP server (in our case, our production web servers in Hosteurope) that has been identified as the source for the definitive version of the content.
Cloudflare captures information about each request that includes system logs which captures the following information: IP address, lat/long of the server which served the request, country and date and time. More information about Cloudflare’s privacy practices can be found at https://www.cloudflare.com/privacypolicy/.
Google Analytics also uses electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes called single pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our site is used.
