Details of Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel

 In order to comply with the regulations regarding the use of these cookies, we need to introduce some of the technologies used on the website in further detail. Below you will find information on the two most important pieces of software of the website, Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel. You will also find information that you can use to restrict the various data processing activities linked to the use these pieces of software.

Google Analytics is Google’s analytical tool that helps website and application owners to gain a better understanding of visitor activities. By using Google Analytics website owners can gain information from Google regarding the usage of their website that can be used to analyze website traffic.

The primary cookie used by Google Analytics is the “__ga” cookie. Google Analytics can be used by Google to serve ads more relevant to users in various Google services (e.g. Google Search). source:

 “Google Analytics collects internal cookies, device/browser related data, IP addresses and activities executed on a website or in an application. These data are collected by Google Analytics to measure user activities on websites using Google Analytics services and then record those in statistical reports.” source  “Google Analytics uses IP addresses to determine the users geographic location and to protect services and clients.”

Google Analytics provides users with the option to activate IP masking, whereby Google Analytics will only use partial and not entire IP addresses. Furthermore, clients can also override IP addresses with the IP override function. – The website uses IP address masking for Google Analytics with the appropriate settings.

 You can find more details on the functions of Google Analytics cookies and the data processing related to them on the following link:

 The website uses Facebook’s Facebook Pixel service, to collect data on website usage and to optimize its Facebook content.

Social plugins used by the website

Plugins are optional modules provided by various social platforms (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.). These plugins can be used to connect websites with social platforms, making it possible for users to share and react to contents. Websites use these plugins to increase their reach and the number of page visits.

The plugin forwards data about the pages users visit to the owner of the service. Logging in to a service provider’s account during browsing enables the service provider to compare the sites that interest you (the sites you visit) with your user account. When the various plugin functions are used (e.g. clicking a “Like” button, commenting) the browser sends information regarding this activity directly to the service provider where it stored.

You will find more information regarding service provider’s data collecting and processing activities and your rights and options regarding aforementioned data processing in the service provider’s privacy policy.

When a user uses Facebook social plugins the browser opens a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The contents of the plugin are transferred to the browser which then integrates that into the website. The owner of the website has no control over the extent of data collected by Facebook via the plugins.

By intergating the plugins Facebook receives the information that directed the user to that specific website.When users interact with an add-on, e.g. a Like button or a comment section, the appropriate data is transferred from the browser to Facebook’s servers where they are stored.

You can find Facebook’s privacy policy explaining data collection, data processing, the various authorizations protecting user privacy and the settings thereof here:

If a user has a Facebook account, but does not want Facebook to collect and connect their data, they need to log out of Facebook before visiting the site. Facebook social plugins can also be blocked using browser add-ons.
