Information about Google Analytics

The website uses Google Analytics for statistical audience measuring. Google Analytics, which relies on the use of cookies, is the most popular service for the collection and analysis of data regarding the behavior of visitors in websites. The purpose of using the Google Analytics service is to process data in order to optimize the website, such as which page should be improved and how to make it easier to use, but also to conduct cost/benefit analysis for displaying ads.

Cookies are used to process certain information such as the visitor’s IP address, the time at which the visitor accessed the website, the type of browser they are using, the location from which they accessed it, as well as the frequency of the their visits. At each visit to the website, this data is transmitted to Google’s servers. In case you also use other Google’s services, it is possible that your data will be processed in combination with other relevant information with the aim of profiling for advertising purposes. We have no control over Google’s policies and practices as far the processing of your data on its behalf is concerned. Further information on Google’s use of cookies and data processing in the context of Google Analytics can be found here.

Important note: In July 2020 the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) invalidated the decision 2016/1250 of the European Commission regarding the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework.

Until this decision from the CJEU, data transfers to the USA including Google Analytics were based on this Framework. After the decision, data transfers are based on Standard Contractual Clauses provided by Google (article 46 GDPR) and, auxiliary, on your explicit consent, according to the terms set by article 49.1a GDPR, in the absence of an adequacy decision. Data subjects should be aware that their metadata may be used for profiling by Google and be transferred to the US and a competent public or security authority may be granted access to them according to the US legal framework.

In the context of Google Analytics, the website uses the “Anonymize IP” feature provided by Google. As a result, your IP address is restricted by Google and anonymized as you access the website. This measure is favored by EU data protection supervisory authorities as the best practice in the context of appropriate technical measures for data protection.

In any case, we inform you that you have the option to entirely block the collection of your data by Google Analytics, by installing a plug-in on your preferred browser: (plug-in).
