To know more about how Google Analytics is working, please introduce yourself with their privacy policy here.

How Google Analytics Collects Data

Google Analytics uses cookies to remember a user’s behavior and it shares these insights with you. The developers explain this process fully on their reference platform, but in simple terms, Google Analytics mainly uses first-party cookies to generate reports on who visits your website and what they do once they get there.

When we break it down, this information is extremely useful for commercial purposes. For example, the collected data shows you where in the world your traffic is coming from, and whether you’re appealing to your intended audience:

Google Analytics Help: Safeguarding Data - Cookies and Identifiers - IP Address section

The data is also useful for specific marketing purposes:

Google Analytics Help: Safeguarding Data - Advertising Identifiers section

It’s worth taking a brief look at how Google Analytics uses cookies as part of its remarketing offerings.

Google Analytics and Remarketing

Google can place advertising cookies on a user’s computer if you opt for this extra service. This service lets you target ads based on:

  • Geographical location
  • Audience behavior
  • Audience interests

You can then devise a remarketing strategy based on the information you gather from Google Analytics:

Google Analytics Help: About Advertising Features - Remarketing with Analytics section

You can create marketing campaigns based on specific niches within your audience. For example, you can target certain users by their age or gender.

Google Analytics achieves all of this by collecting personal information from your visitors.

Briefly, personal information is any information which can be used to identify someone, such as their:

  • Name
  • Age
  • Home address
  • Date of birth
  • IP address

Now that we’re more clear about how Google Analytics works, let’s summarize the two reasons why you need a Privacy Policy to use Google Analytics: firstly, Google’s own policies, and secondly, the law itself.

Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
