XI. Data Protection Regulations for the Use and Application of Google Analytics (with Anonymization Function)
Spryker Systems GmbH has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on its website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the surveying, collation and evaluation of data regarding the behavior of visitors to internet sites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a user came from (a “referrer”), which subpages of the website were accessed, or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Spryker Systems GmbH uses the suffix “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, Google shortens and anonymizes the IP address of the user’s internet connection if our internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our internet sites, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our internet sites, and to provide other services in connection with the use of our internet sites.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the user’s information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. By placing the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. Every time one of the individual pages of this website–which is operated by Spryker Systems GmbH and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated–is visited, the internet browser on the user’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the user, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin and clicks of the user and subsequently enable commission statements.
Cookies are used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access originated, and the frequency of visits to our internet sites by the user. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the user, is transmitted to Google in the U.S.A.. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The user can prevent the storing of cookies through our internet sites as already described above, at any time through a corresponding setting of the internet browser used, and thus permanently object to the storing of cookies. The use of such an internet browser setting would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the user’s information technology system. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
We have concluded a data processing contract with Google based on the so-called EU standard contract clauses. More information and Google’s current data protection conditions can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail at this linkhttps://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.
XII. Data Protection Regulations for the Use and Application of Google Maps
This website uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the functions of Google Maps it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this website has no influence on this data transmission.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of creating an appealing representation of our online offers and to ensure that the places indicated by us on the website are easy to find. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f GDPR.
You can find more information on the handling of user data in Google’s data protection policy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy
XIII. Data Protection Regulations for the Use and Application of Google AdWords
Spryker Systems GmbH has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in both Google’s search engine results and the Google Advertising Network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define certain keywords to display an ad in Google’s search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google Advertising Network, ads are distributed on topical websites using an automated algorithm and according to pre-defined keywords.
The operating company for the Google AdWords service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying interest-based advertising on third-party websites and in the search engine results of Google’s search engine and by displaying advertisements on our website.
If a user reaches our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie will be stored on the user’s information technology system by Google. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the user. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping basket of an online shop system, have been called up on our website. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a user who has accessed our website via an AdWords ad has generated revenue, that is, completed or canceled a purchase of goods.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to generate visit statistics for our website. We use these visit statistics to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us via AdWords ads, that is, to determine the success or
failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify the person concerned.
The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the person concerned. Personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is therefore transferred to Google in the United States of America each time she visits our Internet pages. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the storing of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, through an appropriate setting on the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the storing of cookies. Use of such an internet browser setting would also prevent Google from storing a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the person concerned has the option to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the person concerned must access the link http://www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers they use and adjust the required settings there.
We have concluded a data processing contract with Google based on the so-called EU standard contract clauses. More information and the applicable data protection regulations from Google can be obtained at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
