This website uses cookies, which are small text files that, within the scope of your visit to this website, are transmitted from to your browser and are stored by your browser on your computer for later retrieval. You yourself can determine, through settings in your browser, the extent to which cookies can be placed and retrieved. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of the website may be entirely usable.

Cookies are used to make the website more user-friendly (so-called “Necessary Cookie”). Without the use of these cookies, the number of unique users on the website cannot be determined, or provide you with certain functions. In addition, cookies are also used for the website presence, which, for example, allows surfing behavior to be analyzed. If cookies are used beyond this, they are expressly mentioned below.
Legal basis for the use of cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR unless specified otherwise.

 

1. Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
This website has integrated the components of Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analytics service by Google Inc. (“Google”) 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Treaty and thus offers a guarantee that it complies with the European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

Therefore, Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of the website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks.

This web page uses the extension code “anonymizeIp” to ensure an anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP-masking). By activating IP anonymization on our web page, your IP address will be priorly abridged by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). Only in exceptional cases the complete IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then abridged there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on web page activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to web page and Internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through the website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs. In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject must download a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and information about the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-ons is considered an objection by Google. If the information technology system of the data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by the data subject or any other person who is attributable to their sphere of competence, or is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons. Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.

This processing of personal data is carried out pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f of the GDPR.
Letsgotosardinia use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of the website. This allows Letsgotosardinia to improve the offer and make it more interesting for you as a user of the website.
