How Google Analytics Processes Google Signals’ Data

When enabled, Google Analytics will collect visitation information and associate it with Google information from accounts of signed-in users who have consented to this association for the purpose of ads personalisation. 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 anonymity insights into your users’ cross device behaviors. By enabling these features, you acknowledge that you adhere to the Google Advertising Features Policy, including rules around sensitive categories, have the necessary privacy disclosures and rights from your end users for such association and that such data may be accessed and/or deleted by end users via My Activity.
