We have the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) integrated on this Website. Google Analytics is a web-analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, compilation and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web-analysis service collects, among other things, data about the website from which a data subject finds its way onto a website (known as a referrer), which sub-sites of the website are accessed or how often and for which length of time a sub-site has been viewed. A web analysis is primarily used to optimize an internet page and to carry out a 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.
For the web analysis via Google Analytics, Violet Sky Security uses the suffix "_gat._anonym". By means of this suffix, the IP address of the internet connection of the data subject is truncated and anonymized if our Website is accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another country which is a signatory to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google-Analytics component is the analysis of the flow of visitors on our Website. Google uses the collected data and information, among other things, to analyse the use of our Website, in order to compile online reports for us, which show the activities taking place on our Website, and to provide other services connected to the use of our Website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the IT system of the data subject. The nature of cookies has already been described above. By placing cookies, Google can analyse the use of our Website. Each time one of the individual pages of this Website – which is operated by the controller responsible for the processing and on which a Google-Analytics component has been integrated – is accessed, the internet browser on the IT system of the data subject is automatically induced, by the respective Google-Analytics component, to transmit data to Google for purposes of online analysis. In the context of this technical process, Google will gain access to personal data such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of the visitors and clicks and to subsequently allow commissions to be calculated.
Personal information such as the time of access, the place from which the site was accessed and the number of times the data subject has visited our Website is stored via the cookie. Each time our Website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States. Google may pass this personal data, which is collected via the technical process, on to third parties.
As it has already been set out above, the data subject may, at any time, prevent our Website placing any cookies by making a corresponding adjustment to the settings of the internet browser used, and thereby object to the placing of cookies once and for all. Such an adjustment of the internet browser used would also prevent Google placing a cookie IT system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie that has already been placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
