COOKIES

1. Description and scope of the data processing

Cookies

We deploy so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files or pixels that are stored on the user’s terminal. These are technologies with the aid of which certain user-specific settings and technical information with which the user can be identified can be gathered. We deploy cookies in order to design our services in a more user-friendly manner. Some elements of our services require it to be possible to identify the user. We moreover use cookies that make it possible to analyse user behaviour. We also use cookies to display advertising. The use of cookies is usual, and common practice on many websites. Cookies are stored on the user’s terminal.

 

Permanent cookies are cookies of the sort that can be found on your terminal for an extended period of time. Session cookies, in turn, are stored on your terminal temporarily and are deleted once the services have been closed.

 

We deploy necessary cookies, cookies for analysis, performance cookies and targeting cookies.

 

Necessary cookies. These cookies are necessary in order to use the services. Without these necessary cookies it may be the case that we may not able to provide you with certain services or features, or that the services are not displayed properly.

 

Function cookies.Function cookies make it possible for us to recognise your previous settings again, and provide you with extended and better adapted features, e.g. personal adjustment of the services or recognising whether we have enquired with you about certain things or whether you have enquired about any other services. All these features help us to improve the services for you.

 

Performance cookies. Performance cookies are sometimes also called analytical cookies (Analytics Cookies), and gather information about your use of the services, enabling us to improve the functioning of the services. For example, performance cookies show us which pages are used most frequently, as well as what the entire usage pattern for the services looks like, and help us to recognise problems in using the services and establish whether our advertising is displayed effectively or not.

 

Targeting and advertising cookies. We and our service providers may deploy targeting or advertising cookies to show you advertisements that are better adapted to your interests and preferences. We may use targeting or advertising cookies to delimit the number of identical advertisements that you get to see when using the services or to ascertain the efficiency of our marketing campaigns. These cookies record, for example, what you have looked at when using the services, and we share this information with other organisations, such as advertising customers.

2. Legal basis for the data processing

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

 

3. Purpose of the data processing

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify use. Some functions of our software cannot be provided without deploying cookies. The user data gathered by technically necessary cookies is not used to create user profiles. The analytical cookies (Analytics Cookies) are used for the purpose of improving the quality and content of our services. By using the analytical cookies, we find out how the services are used, enabling us to continually optimise our services. These purposes are also the reason for our legitimate interest in processing the data pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. We moreover have a legitimate interest in showing advertising within our services. We are interested in finding new customers. In order for this to become possible, our advertising partners need to deploy cookies.

Cookies are stored on the user’s device and transmitted to us by the latter. You, as a user, therefore also have full control over the use of cookies. By adjusting the settings in your web browser or mobile device, you can deactivate or limit the transmission of cookies. You can at any time delete any cookies already stored. This can also be done in an automated way. If cookies are deactivated, you may no longer be able to use all the functions of the services. The data is deleted once it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was gathered.
