You may consult this list to find the Privacy Policy for each of the third party services of HSK Flashcards.

Third Party Privacy Policies

HSK Flashcards's Privacy Policy does not apply to other services or websites. Thus, we are advising you to consult the respective Privacy Policies of these third-party services for more detailed information. It may include their practices and instructions about how to opt-out of certain options.

You can choose to disable cookies through your individual browser options. To know more detailed information about cookie management with specific web browsers, it can be found at the browsers' respective websites.

Google Analytics

HSK Flashcards uses the Google Analytics platform on both the HSK Flaschards website and in the HSK Flashcards app.

Google Analytics is an analytics service used for the collection and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites and/or apps. Among other things, an analysis service collects data on which parts of the website and/or app a user has interacted with. This allows us to gain insights into user behavior which are needed to inform decisions made when updating the website and/or app. HSK Flashcards does not have advertisements and does not share any data with third party services for advertising purposes.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website and/or app is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google might transfer the personal information collected via this technical procedure to third parties.

In addition, this website uses the Google Analytics feature UserID to track interaction data. Because HSK Flashcards does not have user accounts an "installation id" is used in lieu of UserID. This "installation id" allows us to differentiate between first time users and returning users.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible.

In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

More information about Google's applicable privacy regulations can be found in the Google Analytics Privacy Policy. A further explanation of Google Analytics can be found on the Google Analytics About Page.

Google Tag Manager

HSK Flashcards uses Google Tag Manager on the HSK Flashcards website and in the HSK Flashcards app. Through this service so-called website tags can be managed centrally via a user interface. Google Tag Manager only implements tags. No cookies are used and no personal information is collected.

However, Google Tag Manager will not access these data. If deactivation has been implemented for certain domains/websites or cookies, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags as far as they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

More information about the data collected by Google Tag Manager and how it is used can be found in the Google Tag Manager Privacy Policy
