IP masking and anonymising takes place as soon as the data is received by the Google Analytics collection network, before the data is stored or processed to generate statistics on the use of the web portal. Google Analytics anonymises the address as soon as this is technically feasible, in the passage upstream from the network on which the data is collected.

Analytical cookies can be disabled without affecting navigation on the portal: to disable them, refer to the next section, "How to disable cookies".
