By using Google, your personal data is collected, transferred, stored, disclosed and used by Google LLC. Google processes your voluntarily entered data such as name and user name, e-mail address, telephone number or the contacts in your address book when you upload or synchronise it.
Google also evaluates the content you share to determine what topics you are interested in, stores and processes confidential messages you send directly to other users, and may use geolocation data such as GPS or Galileo, wireless network information or your IP address to determine your location in order to serve you advertising or other content.
For evaluation purposes, Google LLC may use analysis tools such as Google Analytics. The State Ministry has no influence on the type and scope of the data processed by Google, the type of processing and use or the transfer of this data to third parties. Nor does it have any effective means of monitoring in this respect. If tools of this kind are used by Google LLC for the account of the State Ministry, the State Ministry has neither commissioned nor approved this nor otherwise supported it in any way. Nor is the data obtained from the analysis made available to it. Only certain non-personal information about post activity, such as the number of profile or media clicks, and viewing time through a particular video, can be viewed by the State Ministry through its account. Moreover, the State Ministry has no way of preventing or stopping the use of such tools on its Google account.
Finally, Google also receives information when you view content, for example, even if you have not created an account. This so-called “log data” may be the IP address, browser type, operating system, information about the website you previously visited and the pages you viewed, your location, your mobile provider, the terminal device you use (including device ID and application ID), the search terms you used and cookie information.
You have options of restricting the processing of your data in the general settings of your Google account as well as as described under Privacy check and Privacy settings. In addition, on mobile devices (smartphones, tablet computers) you can restrict Google access to contact and calendar data, photos, location data and so on in the settings options there. However, this depends on the operating system used.
