Data protection information about the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
On our website we have integrated 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 analysis 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 are mainly used for website optimization and in order to carry out 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 in Ireland, Dublin at Gordon House Barrow St Dublin 4 Ireland.
For web analysis via Google Analytics, the data controller uses the application “_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 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 collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of the website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on the website, and to provide other services relating to the use of the website on the Internet.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above.
With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call made to one of the pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the user’s information technology system will automatically send data through the Google Analytics tool for the purposes of online advertising and the settlement of commissions for Google.
During the course of this technical procedure, the company Google 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, to create commission agreements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as 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 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 already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via your browser or other programs.
Further information and the applicable data protection methods of Google may be found at https://www.google.com/intl/pt-BR/policies/privacy/ and at http://www.google.com/analytics/ terms/us.html. Google Analytics is explained in the following link https://www.google.com/analytics/.

What other Google products incorporate this policy?
What types of ads are considered “personalized” for 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 ROI for advertisers. Our publisher products, depending on how they are used, can make inferences about users’ interests based on the sites 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 a user’s past search queries, activity, site or app visits, demographics or location . Specifically, this may include, for example: demographic targeting, interest category targeting, remarketing, Customer Match, and audience list targeting uploaded to the Google Marketing Platform.
What types of ads are considered “non-personalized” in this policy?
Non-personalized ads use only contextual information, including approximate general location (city level) and content on the current website or app; 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 like ad measurement?
