Encrypt data in thank you page URL and upsell sales page URL

What it’s all about

After a reform at Google Analytics/AdWords, customer data may no longer be contained as plain text in the URL of a page with an implemented tracking code. With regard to Digistore24, this affects thank you pages and upsell sales pages with customer order data.
