3. Google Analytics with anonymization function

a) Description and scope of data processing

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter “Google”) on our Website. Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your terminal device (see above) and enable an analysis of the use of our Website.

The information generated by this cookie regarding your usage behavior is transmitted to Google’s servers located in the USA and stored there.

So that you can still use our portal anonymously, we use Google Analytics with the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp”. This means that your IP address is already reduced by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus anonymized. Only in very special cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other data collected by Google. In these circumstances we will, as required by section 72 of POPIA, ensure that your privacy rights are adequately protected by organizational, technical, contractual and/or other lawful means. Google has signed standard contractual clauses to ensure an appropriate level of data protection. By enabling cookies, you consent to the transfer of your personal information, as aforesaid.

More detailed information on the terms of use and data protection of Google Analytics can be found at

b) Legal basis for data processing

We process your personal information based on your consent.

c) Processing purpose

Google uses the information to determine how you have used the Website, to provide us with a summary of website activity and to provide other services related to internet and Website usage. This includes all demographic and geographic information. If necessary, Google will transfer the collected information to third parties if this is required by law or if Google commissions third parties to process this information.

d) Storage period

The storage period of the information transmitted by you and linked to cookies is 2 years. After this period, the information will be automatically deleted. The deletion of information whose retention period has been reached takes place automatically once a month. In addition, you can independently uninstall the cookies installed by Google Analytics and thus delete the stored information. We explain how this deletion can be carried out via the browser settings in the following point.

e) Revocation.

You are free to revoke the installation of cookies at any time by making the appropriate setting in your browser software and without giving any reasons.

For this purpose, Google offers a deactivation add-on for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over what information is collected by Google about the portal page you call up. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no information about the portal visit should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the Google Analytics browser deactivation add-on does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services we may use. For more information on how to install the browser add-on, please click on the following link:

This does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out until the point of revocation based on your consent. In the event of revocation, your personal information will no longer be processed, but deleted.
