    The factory manual for my 2002 WRX also states 0,7l of Dexron III. This means the fluid must meet General Motors specifications GM Spec GM6417M, GMN10055. General Motors developed the fluid and the specs.

    There are no specifications listed for the product you linked. I can't tell if it's a Dexron III fluid (it would either say Dexron III or General Motors Spec GM6417M, GMN10055 on the bottle). This is good news though, because if there is any doubt, then there is no doubt. I'd not use it.

    I'd find the correct fluid and use only that, exclusively.

    Incidentally, there is no stated service interval for the power steering fluid. My car still has the original fluid from 2002. Unless you have a leak, you're just doing preventative maintenance I suppose. If it's preventative, you have time to get the correct fluid. If you're fixing a leak, you're shopping for parts anyway so you may as well get the correct fluid. Either way...
