An example URL found in Google Analytics looks like this:

/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=orders&layout=details&order_number=xxxxxxxxx&order_pass=xxxxxxxxxx (I have replaced the order number and password to xxxxxxxx).

How do I prevent these pages from being tracked?

This URL gives access to Personally Identifiable Information, which Google can then use across its services.

Should VirtueMart allow these pages to be tracked?

How is the shopper Account Management page not tracked, assuming and hoping it is not  :-\

Any insight is appreciated!

Thanks
