According to the Telecom legislation that was passed in January 2015, Google Analytics falls under the exceptions because this cookie infringes “no or only minor” privacy. In addition, the Google Analytics cookie is a “first party cookie, i.e. the cookie on your computer has “marcushikren.com” in the file name and the data is officially owned by Marcus Hikren and not by Google. This cookie is not used for advertising or other commercial purposes.
In addition to the Telecom Act, the AVG also applies. The use of Google Analytics is also permitted within this law, provided it is set up correctly. This involves four important conditions. (1) There is a processor agreement between Marcus Hikren and Google about the Analytics data. (2) IP addresses are made anonymous so that data can never be traced back to you or your IP address. (3) Marcus Hikren’s Analytics account is set up in such a way that the information may not be shared with others. (4) The visitor is clearly informed about the use of Analytics and has an ‘opt-out’ option (described below).
Marcus Hikren thus meets all legal requirements. The Analytics cookie remains valid for 6 months.
