Germany/Bavaria: DPA scanning for web sites for privacy-compliant Google Analytics use

In 2012, the Bavarian DPA scanned German web sites for the privacy compliant use of Google Analytics.

The DPA checked

  • if a written processing agreement had been put in place with Google,
  • if the privacy notice on the web site was transparent on the use of Google Analytics and the users’ option to avoid being tracked
  • if the Google Analytics’ “anonymization feature” was enabled in the web site’s source code

13.404 Webseiten had been tested 2.371 companies were contacted for shortcomings.
