Google signals data collection
Google Analytics collects visitation information and associates it with Google information from accounts of signed-in users who have consented to this association for ad personalization. This Google information may include end user location, search history, YouTube history, and data from sites that partner with Google—and is used to provide aggregated and anonymized insights into your users’ cross-device behaviours.
Granular location and device data collection
Google Analytics collects metadata about the city-level location and granular device details of the website visitors so it can provide location and device-based capabilities.
Google Analytics information of Canadian and US (with the exception of California) website visits is exported to our Ads accounts for the purpose of delivering relevant, personalized experiences to our end users.
Data sharing with Google
We share our Google Analytics data with Google to help improve Google’s products and services and provide us with features like predictions, modelled data, and benchmarking. The data we share is aggregated and de-identified before being used to generate business insights.
