The websites testit.de, Preisvergleich.at, Preisvergleich.ch, Preisvergleich.org, shopping.at, shopping.ch use our own web analytics service. This service does not use personal data.

The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. A profile creation or linking to other sources is not possible with this anonymized analysis data. You can find more information about how Google Analytics handles user data in Google's privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.
