What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files (composed only of letters and numbers) that a web server places on your computer or mobile device when you visit a webpage or an app. When used, the cookie can help make our website more user-friendly, for example by remembering your language preferences and settings. You can find more information about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org.

Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work in an efficient way. The use of cookies allows you to navigate between pages efficiently. Cookies remember your preferences and make the interaction between you and the Platform smoother and more efficient. Cookies are also used to help ensure that the advertisements you see online are relevant to you and your interests. When do we store cookies?

We store cookies when you visit or access our Website – these are called “first party cookies“. In addition, cookies are stored by other third parties (for example our analytics service providers, business partners and advertisers) who run content through our services – these are called “third party cookies“.

Both types of cookies may be stored either for the duration of your interaction with our services or for repeat visits.

What types of cookies do we use?

There are four main types of cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies
    These cookies are essential to enable you to login, navigate around and use the features of our websites. We do not need to obtain your consent in order to use these cookies. These cookies can be used for security reasons – for example, to detect violation of our policies, identify and prevent fraud, fulfill your requests and to support other security features.
  • Functionality cookies
    These cookies allow us to remember choices you make (such as your language) and provide enhanced and personalized features. The information these cookies collect remains anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity.
  • Performance cookies
    These cookies collect information about your online activity, including behavioral data and content engagement metrics. These cookies are used for analytics, research and to perform statistics (based on aggregated information).
  • Targeting cookies or advertising cookies
    These cookies are used to deliver tailored offers and advertisements to you, based on your derived interests. They can also be used to cap the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by our advertisers (for example advertising networks) and provide them insights about the people who see and interact with their ads, visit their websites or use their app.

Facebook

We use retargeting tags and Custom Audience provided by Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304 USA, “Facebook”).

Facebook Custom Audiences

  • In the context of interest-based online advertising, we use the product Facebook Custom Audiences. For this purpose, a non-reversible and non-personal checksum (hash value) is generated from your usage data. That hash value can be transmitted to Facebook for analysis and marketing purposes. The collected Information contains your activities on our site (e.g. browsing behavior, visited subpages, etc.). Your IP address is transmitted as well and used for geographical controlling of advertising. The data collected is only transmitted encrypted to Facebook and is anonymous to us that means the personal data of individual users are not visible to us.

Facebook Exchange FBX

  • When you visit our websites with the help of remarketing tags, a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server is established. Facebook gets the information that you have visited our website with your IP address. This allows Facebook to assign your visit to our website to your user account. The information thus obtained we can use for the display of Facebook Ads. We point out that we as the provider of the website have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and the use of it by Facebook.

Facebook Conversion Tracking Pixel

  • This tool allows us to follow the actions of users after they are redirected to a provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook advertisement. We are thus able to record the efficacy of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes. The collected data remain anonymous. This means that we cannot see the personal data of any individual user. However, the collected data are saved and processed by Facebook. We are informing you on this matter according to our information at this time. Facebook is able to connect the data with your Facebook account and use the data for their own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s privacy policy found under: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. Facebook Conversion Tracking also allows Facebook and its partners to show you advertisements on and outside Facebook. In addition, a cookie will be saved onto your computer for these purposes.
