3) What cookies does Nintendo use?

 

Nintendo uses the following tracking cookies and pixels on this Website.

Google Analytics

Nintendo uses Google Analytics on this Website, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google“). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on visitors’ computers, to help Nintendo analyse how visitors use the Website. The information generated by the cookie about a visitor’s use of this Website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

IP anonymisation has been activated. The IP addresses of Google users from European Union member states, or from other states contracting to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, will be shortened. Only in exceptional cases will a complete IP address be transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of Nintendo, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating this Website for Nintendo, in order to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage for Nintendo.

Google will not associate the IP address transferred in the context of Google Analytics with any other data held by Google. For further information please visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

Visitors can prevent the collection of data about their use of this Website (including their IP address) generated by the cookie, and the processing of data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in through the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

The legal basis for Nintendo for using Google Analytics and for analysing usage of this Website is Art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). The legitimate interest Nintendo pursues is the improvement and optimization of the Nintendo content Nintendo provides to Webedia for the benefit of the website visitor.

To exercise this right a visitor may at any time download and install the aforementioned browser plug-in or may at any time deactivate the use of tracking cookies in the tracking settings below.

Google Remarketing

Nintendo also uses the Google Remarketing technology on this Website, which is a service from Google. Advertisements can be presented within the advertising network of Google based on content which has previously been accessed on websites within the Google advertising network by visitors that are also using the Google Remarketing feature. In particular, based on a visitor’s prior use of this Website Nintendo uses Google Remarketing to target Nintendo ads to visitors of this Website when they visit other websites, e.g. sites in Google’s content network.
