Such Cookie usually contains the name of the domain the Cookie originates from, the durability of the Cookie until it expires, and a value in terms of a unique number generated by a respective random generator.
Using such Cookies enables Honeypot to recognize the user, and to statistically record the use of the service as well as analyze it in order to improve it. This can make the use of Honeypot’s service easier for the user. The website can be accessed with cookies disabled, but the Service may not be usable or its usability deteriorated without cookies.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a server in the US and shortened there. Google will, on behalf of Honeypot, use the information to analyze the use of the Service by the user, in order to compile reports about the activities of users on the Service and in order to provide further services associated with the use of the Service and the internet. Google will in no way combine the IP address of a user with other data of Google. users can prevent the installation of the cookies by a corresponding setting of the browser software; Honeypot however points out that in this case users can if applicable not use all functions of the Service of Honeypot in full.
