Data protection information about the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

On our website we integrate the Google Analytics component (with the anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the process of collecting and analyzing data about the behavior of website visitors.

A web analytics service collects and reconciles data about the website from which a user arrived (the so-called referrer), which pages were visited or how often and for how long a page was viewed.
Web analytics is primarily used for website optimization and to perform a cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

For European residents, the data controller is Google's Irish subsidiary, located precisely in Ireland, Dublin at Gordon House Barrow St Dublin 4 Ireland.
For web analytics using Google Analytics, the data controller uses the “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. Through this application, the IP address of the user's Internet connection is abbreviated by Google and anonymized when accessing the website from a Member State of the European Union or from another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze website traffic.

Google uses the data and information collected, among others, to evaluate the use of the website and to provide online reports that show activities on the website as well as to provide other services related to the use of the website on the Internet.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the data holder's technology system. The definition of cookies is explained above.
By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyze the use of our website. With each link made to one of the pages of this website, operated by the data controller and in which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser in the user's information technology system will automatically send the data through the Google Analytics tool. for online advertising purposes and the settlement of commissions to Google.

During the course of this technical procedure, the Google company acquires knowledge of personal information, such as the user's IP address, which serves Google, among other things, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks and, consequently, create commission agreements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made and the frequency of visits to the website by the user. With each visit to the website, this personal data, including the IP address used by the user, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America.

Google may pass on this personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
The user can, as already mentioned, prevent the setting of cookies on the website, at any time, by means of a corresponding adjustment in the browser they use and, thus, permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the browser used will also prevent Google Analytics from installing a cookie on the user's information technology system. Furthermore, cookies that are already in use by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time through the browser or through other programs.

The user has the possibility to object to the collection of data that is generated by Google Analytics, related to the use of the website, as well as the processing of this data by Google. To this end, the data subject must download a browser add-on from the link and install it. The browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that any data and information about visits to websites cannot be transmitted to Google Analytics. Installing the browser add-on is considered an objection to Google. If the user's information technology system is subsequently formatted or re-installed, the user must reinstall browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics again. If the browser add-on has been uninstalled or deactivated by the user or by any other person attributable to their sphere of competence, it is possible to perform the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.

What other Google products incorporate this policy?

In addition to measurement and ad products, this policy is referenced in the Google Maps Platform Terms of Use, the YouTube API Services Terms of Use, the G+ Buttons Policy, the reCAPTCHA Terms of Use, and Blogger.

What types of ads are considered “personalized” for the purposes of this policy?

Personalized advertising (formerly known as interest-based advertising) is an effective tool that improves the relevance of advertising to users and increases the ROI of advertisers.
Our publisher products, depending on how they are used, may make inferences about users' interests based on the websites they visit or the applications they use, which allows advertisers to target campaigns according to these interests. This provides an improved experience for both users and advertisers. To learn more, see our Advertising Policies for Personalized Ads.

Google considers ads to be personalized when they rely on previously collected data or historical data to determine or influence ad selection, including past search queries, activity, website or app visits, demographics or a user's location. . Specifically, this may include, for example: demographic targeting, interest category targeting, remarketing, customer targeting and targeting audience lists uploaded to the Google Marketing Platform.

What types of ads are considered “non-personalized” in this policy?

Non-personalized ads only use contextual information, including approximate general location (city-level) and content on the current website or application; segmentation is not based on a user's profile or past behavior.

Why does the policy require consent for cookies, even if they are only for non-personalization purposes, such as ad measurement?

Cookies or mobile device identifiers are used to support personalized and non-personalized ads published by Google, to combat fraud and abuse, to set frequency caps and to generate aggregated ad reporting. Our policy also requires consent to the use of cookies or mobile device identifiers for users in countries where the EU's e-Privacy Directive provisions relating to cookies apply and in the United Kingdom. We understand that regulatory guidance on ePrivacy laws is not consistent across Europe, so our policy asks for consent to the use of cookies or mobile device identifiers “whenever legally required”.
