You can contact our designated Data Protection Officer at the address indicated above by using the reference ‘For the attention of the Data Protection Officer’ or by writing to email@example.com with the subject line ‘For the attention of the Data Protection Officer’.
WHAT DATA IS COLLECTED?
When you visit our website, the data of the computer you use to access our website is automatically logged (“access data”). This access data includes server log files that generally consist of information pertaining to your web browser type and version, your operating system, your internet service provider (ISP), the date and time you used the website, the websites previously visited by you and the websites you accessed from our website, in addition to the IP address of your computer. With the exception of your IP address, the information contained in the server log files is not personally identifiable. An IP address is personally identifiable when it is static (permanently allocated when using internet access) and the ISP is able to attribute it to a specific person.
Some features of our website require that you divulge personal information to us. In this case, the information provided by you is used to provide the service requested by you or process a matter submitted by you (e.g. search queries, entries made in forms or contracts, click data). Other services on this website will require you to provide information such as your first and last name, email address and phone number. These are required in cases you wish us to contact you back.
WHAT COOKIES ARE USED?
As a general principle, cookies enable online recognition without reference to a specific person. Cookies may become personally identifiable when the information they contain is merged with other information apart from the information generated by the cookies themselves. Here a distinction is made between cookies that are necessary for the provision of website features, and cookies that are required for other purposes, e.g. analysis of user behavior or displaying advertising-related content.
The cookies that are required for the provision of website features include the following in particular:
- Necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.
- Quriobot: Used to set start and end of a conversation with Quriobot
- Google Tag Manager: Used to manage third party tools
- Preference cookies enable a website to remember information that changes the way the website behaves or looks, like your preferred language or the region that you are in.
- Polylang: Used to remember user’s choice of preferred language
- Statistic cookies help website owners to understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously.
- Google Analytics: Used for tracking customers behavior
- Marketing cookies are used to track visitors across websites. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third party advertisers.
- Google Analytics – Advertising:
Google Analytics is a web analytics tool that also offers integration with Google advertising products in the Google Marketing Platform. We use this script to create remarketing lists or audiences to personalize our online advertising campaigns. If you give us your consent, Google Analytics will add your cookie to one or more targeting lists. We may create lists of users who have visited a particular page or searched for a particular destination. These cookies can also be combined with location information or interest segments provided by Google. These lists allow us to retarget you with relevant, personalized advertising elsewhere on the internet. No personally identifiable information is collected in this process and we cannot identify you or your device. However, during this process, the information from our first-party cookie is combined with and shared with third-party cookies.
- Google Adwords – Remarketing:
We use scripts from Google Adwords to create remarketing lists or similar target groups in order to personalize our online advertising. Google links sessions on our website (first-party cookie) to one of Google’s ad cookies on users’ browsers (third-party cookie). If you later perform a search on google.com using the same browser, you may see customized ads based on your previous sessions on our platform. Google may use the data collected in conjunction with the data they have about you to personalize advertising on their own network. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data as part of Google AdWords. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of our advertisements in the Google advertising network are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data, and in particular we cannot identify our users on the basis of this information.
- If you do not wish to use Google’s remarketing function, you can deactivate it by changing the corresponding settings under http://www.google.com/settings/ads
