None. By linking your survey with Google Analytics or Google Tag Manager, no responses, results or participant data are transferred to Google. Only the traffic on your survey becomes visible through the link. Data from the survey, such as the questionnaire or participant data, are not transferred to Google.
In Google Analytics, you only receive the user-based data that you also generally collect via your website. If, for example, you have activated the AnonymizeIP option in Analytics, no IP addresses will be displayed in connection with the survey tracking.
Likewise, you will not see which page - within the survey - a participant is on or has cancelled. You will only see the general call, as with a landing page on your website.
