9. Cookies, Third-Party Software Development Kits and Tracking

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the User's device containing information about the device. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while using the Service. By setting a cookie, MAA will remember the User the next time he/she visits the Service. The User is always free to decline our cookies if his/her browser permits, although in that case he/she may not be able to use certain features of the Service and may be required to re-enter information more frequently to use certain features of the Service.

We use third-party software development kits (“SDKs”) as part of the functionality of our Service. Third-party SDKs may allow third parties including advertisers to collect your personal information to provide content that is more relevant to you.

We use Google Analytics, an analysis service operated by Google LLC, (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, "Google"). For this purpose, Google places a cookie on your device when you visit our web pages. This makes it possible to recognize your browser and to analyze your usage of our web pages on our behalf.

Google normally anonymizes your IP address within the EU or the EEA, before the data about your website usage are transmitted to the USA. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield for the exceptional cases, in which personal data are transmitted to the USA, to ensure a reasonable level of data protection. More detailed information is available here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The IP address transmitted from your browser in connection with Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Please note further that on our web pages, Google Analytics was extended by the "anonymized();" code in order to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses. As a result, IP address are processed in abbreviated fashion. This prevents data collected in connection with Google Analytics from being associated with you. Thus, to the extent that the data collected about you have a personal reference, this is immediately excluded and the personal data are thus promptly deleted. Additional information regarding the use of your data by Google is available here: https://policies.google.com.

You have the option to prevent the use of your data at any time by installing the plug-in offered by Google. This plug-in is available at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
