Google Analytics data

Request awaits classification
Summary of Request
Please provide me, under the purview of the "US-CH Privacy Shield" arrangement, with access to all my personal data stored in the Google Analytics service, where "personal data" is scoped by the Swiss Data Protection Act. You will find a link to my identification documents below my signature. One is a passport scan. The other one is data directly extracted from the Google Analytics database itself. It is likely that you will claim this data does not constitute personal data. I encourage you to quantify this claim. From my best efforts, I can assess that claim based on values extracted from the Panopticlick tool of EFF (for the current state of my browser, not the actual values that were tracked back in August 2016, but I don't expect significant difference, please correct me if that is wrong): Vaud region: 700k inhabitants. According to Panopticlick, my computer is unique among: 17.9 (screen size/color depth) * 1.72 (language) * 7.4 (OS) * 1966 (browser version) == 447916 computers. However, this does not include information about Java and Flash, which you seem to track as well. I think this is a solid and quantifiable basis to claim that the data I am providing below is indeed personal data. I stand at your disposal should you have any question. I remind you that you have 45 days to respond. Sincerely,

Reference no. 1065291 Hello, We understand that you are seeking access to information that a Google Analytics customer may hold about you as a result of using the Google Analytics service. Google collects Google Analytics information on behalf of Google Analytics customers using this service. Hence, Google is under confidentiality obligations not to share such information unless instructed to do so by its customers. Please be informed to directly contact the web site using Google Analytics that you visit if you want to learn more about their use of Google Analytics. Also, please note that Google Analytics customers are prohibited from collecting personally identifiable information (such as your name, email address, or other such information) to Google Analytics (https://support.google.com/analytics/...). For this reason, it is unlikely that either the customer or Google will be a position to disclose information to you given that it cannot confidently identify information specifically relating to you.
