Use of External Tools on our Site

 

Improvyze has integrated tools from different companies into Improvyze's website, which allows Improvyze to evaluate user behavior and to establish links with other websites.

             

              Google Analytics

              The controller has integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function) on his website.

              Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the gathering, collection and analysis of data about the 

              behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a data 

              subject has come to a website from (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how

              often and for which period of time a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and

              for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

              The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA

              94043-1351, USA.

              Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually

              transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google might transfer the personal information collected

              via this technical procedure to third parties.

             

              As IP anonymization is activated on our website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within Member States

              of the European Union or other states in agreement with the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases,

              the full IP address is sent to and shortened by a Google server in the USA. On behalf of the operator of the website,

              Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and to

              provide further services related to website and internet use to us. The IP address transferred through your browser

              to Google Analytics will not be combined with other data held by Google.

              You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please 

              note that if you do this, you may fully not be able to use all the features of this website possible.

              You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Service available to Google Analytics by installing the Google

              Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and

              dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visit activity.

              In addition, you may prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the

              website (including your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and

              installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

              This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits may

              be transmitted to Google Analytics.

              In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other 

              software programs.

              Further information and Google‘s applicable privacy regulations can be found at
