A. Google Analytics (cookies) – a tool for analysing website statistics
- Google stores on its servers the data collected thanks to placing cookies on users’ devices and uses this data to produce reports and provide other services related to online traffic and using the Internet.
- Google may also share this information with third parties if obliged to do so under legal regulations or if these third parties process such information on behalf of Google.
- This data is used only for the purpose of statistical analysis and in mechanisms that correct system errors, which means that none of the data from cookies is in any way combined with the other data you share with us.
B. Google Ad Manager and Tag Manager
- The Google Tag Manager is a system for managing tags, which allows for quick and easy updating of tracking codes and the related fragments of code, i.e. tags, on a website or in a mobile application. After adding a small of fragment of Tag Manager code to a project, you can easily and securely implement settings in terms of analytics and measurement tags, using an online user interface.
- A collection of tags, rules, variables, and the related configurations installed on the given website or in the given mobile application is called a container. A Tag Manager container may replace other, manually coded tags on a website or in an application, including Google Ads and Google Analytics tags.
- Cookies alone do not contain information that allows for identifying the given person. Depending on the settings of the publisher and the user, information related to the cookies used in advertisements may be added to the user’s Google account.
- Google Ad Manager and the Google Marketing Platform advertising services send cookies to the browser after any view, click, or another operation that results in establishing a connection with our servers. If the browsers accepts the given cookie, the cookie is stored in the browser.
- The cookies of Google Ad Manager and the Google Marketing Platform advertising services are most often sent to the browser when the user enters a website that displays advertisements coming from Google Ad Manager or from the Google Marketing Platform advertising services. These websites contain advertising tags that inform the browser that it should request our servers to provide access to the advertisement. Together with the advertisement, our server sends a cookie file. For this to happen, the website does not have to display advertisements coming from Google Ad Manager or the Google Marketing Platform advertising services. It is enough if it contains the advertising tags of Google Ad Manager or the Google Marketing Platform advertising services – these tags may launch the tag for tracking clicks or the pixel for tracking views. More information about this tool is available at https://support.google.com/admanager/answer/2839090?hl=en.
