DHS/ALL/PIA–033 Department of Homeland Security Use of Google Analytics

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) uses Google Analytics for viewing and analyzing traffic to the Department’s public-facing websites. Google Analytics is a free, third-party hosted, website analytics solution that generates robust information about the interactions of public-facing website visitors with the Department. DHS does not collect, maintain, or retrieve personally identifiable information (PII), including a visitor’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, during this analytics process operated by Google. Google Analytics does not provide to DHS, share with Google or any Google product for additional analysis, or use the full or masked IP address or information to draw any conclusions in the analytics product. The Department has expressly chosen to opt-out of sharing information with Google or any Google product for additional analysis. This Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) update is being conducted to analyze the privacy risks of the Department’s use of Google Analytics on internal-facing, anonymous access websites. September 2019
