Information about Google Analytics
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).
