If you are a resident of a member state of the European Union or other states which are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area we will use the AnonymizeIP setting, so that Google will shorten your IP address in advance. Only in exceptional cases Google will transmit the full IP address on server in the United States and will shorten there.
