7. Cookies and Retargeting

7.1 Cookies
Cookies are small files which are stored on your data carrier and which store certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. Basically, we distinguish between two different types of cookies, so-called session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and temporary/permanent cookies, which are stored on your data carrier for a longer period of time or indefinitely. This storage helps us to design our website and our offers for you accordingly and makes it easier for you to use, for example by storing certain entries you make so that you do not have to keep repeating them.

In this respect, cookies help in many aspects to make your visit to the platform easier, more pleasant and more meaningful. Cookies are alphanumeric information files that your web browser automatically stores on your computer's hard drive when you visit our website.

We use cookies, for example, to be able to identify you as a user without you having to log in separately. Their use does not result in us obtaining any new personal data about you as an online visitor. Most Internet browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a message always appears when you receive a new cookie.

However, you can set your browser to accept cookies only if you agree to this. As a rule, the help function in the menu bar of your web browser will show you how to reject new cookies and deactivate those you have already received.

We would like to point out that deactivating cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of the platform.

7.2 Retargeting

The online platform uses cookie technology to collect data. This is to optimise the offer and the advertising. The data is anonymised and not used to identify you personally. At no time will your data be merged with personal data stored by us. With the help of the anonymised data, we can make our online offer more attractive for you and present you with offers, services and advertising that correspond to your areas of interest. We use so-called re-targeting technologies. These technologies make it possible to address users who have already visited the portal with advertising on the websites of our partners. We are convinced that the display of personalised advertising is generally more interesting for the user than advertising without a personal reference. We use cookie technology and the analysis of previous user behaviour to display advertising. The data used is anonymised and is never merged with personal data. Personal data is not stored at any time.

By using the portal, the user consents to the use of so-called cookies and thus to the anonymous collection, storage and use of usage data. The user also agrees that his or her data may be stored in cookies even after the end of the browser session and may, for example, be called up again during the next visit. The user can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future by refusing to accept cookies in the browser settings.

The customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.The storage of "conversion cookies" is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
