Web analysis tools
Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
Watersprint AB has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) into this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analytics refers to the collection, compilation and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects data on, among other things, the website from which a data subject arrived on a website (known as the referrer), which subpages of the website are accessed or how often and the length of time for which a subpage was viewed. Web analytics is predominantly used to optimise a website and to perform a cost-benefit analysis of online advertising.
The company that operates the Google Analytics component is Google LLC (“Google”) 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse visitor flows on our website. Google uses the data and information gained to, among other things, evaluate the usage of our website, to create online reports for us that show and compile the activities on our website and to provide further services in connection with the usage of our website.
As already outlined above, the data subject can at all times use a corresponding setting on the web browser used to block the placement of cookies by our website and thus permanently object to the placement of cookies. Such a setting on the web browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the data subject’s IT system. In addition, a cookie that has already been placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time using the web browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics in relation to usage of this website as well as to the processing of this data by Google and can prevent this. To do so, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
We are present on some of the social networks and platforms to communicate with and inform customers, stakeholders and users about our services and partnerships.
In this regard, we point out that user data might be processed outside the European Union. This can result in risks for the users, e.g. the enforcement of user rights might be more difficult. Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield providers guarantee that they will follow the EU’s data protection regulations when processing data.
Usually, the user data is processed for market research and advertising purposes. On basis of the usage behaviour and the interests arising user profiles can be drawn. The user profiles can be used to place advertising in and outside of social networks and platforms, to attend to the user’s specific interests. For this purpose, cookies are stored on the user’s device, where the user’s behaviour and interests are stored. Furthermore, the user profiles might save data independent from the used device.
We use YouTube on our website for instructional videos and videos of informative – even educational – content. This is a video portal operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, hereinafter referred to as “YouTube”. YouTube is a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”.

We use YouTube in its advanced privacy mode to show you videos. According to YouTube, the advanced privacy mode means that the data specified below will only be transmitted to the YouTube server if you actually start a video. Without this mode, a connection to the YouTube server in the USA will be established as soon as you access any of our webpages on which a YouTube video is embedded.
