Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield agreement and guarantees to adhere to European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse the usage of this website, to compile reports on the website activity and to render services related to usage of the website and internet for the website operator. You can prevent the storage of cookies by altering the respective setting in your web browser. However, doing so may mean that you are unable to use all the comfort functions of this website to their fullest extent.
Furthermore, we use Google Analytics to analyse data on double-click cookies and AdWords. If you do not consent to this, you can deactivate it in the Ads preferences manager: http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/
Users personal data will be deleted or anonymised after 14 months.
Our website uses the measurement method (“SZMnG”) of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de) to determine statistical values about the usage of our services. The purpose of measuring the scope is to statistically determine the frequency of use, the number of visitors on our website and their surfing habits – based on a uniform standard procedure – and to therefore obtain comparable values for the market.
User statistics for all digital services which are a member of the German Audit Bureau of Circulation (Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. IVW – http://www.ivw.eu) or which participate in the German Association of Online Research (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online Forschung e.V. (AGOF) – http://www.agof.de) are regularly processed further by AGOF and the German Association of Media Analysis (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e.V. (AGMA) – http://www.agma-mmc.de) and published as a performance value called “Unique User”. The IVW publishes key figures as “Page Impressions” and “Visits”. These ranges and statistics can be viewed on the respective websites.
Legal basis for processing
Analysis with the measuring method SZMnG by INFOnline GmbH is carried out with justifiable interest, according to Article 6 (1) lit. f) of the GDPR. Generating statistics and user categories serve the purpose of processing personal data. The statistics are also used to understand and verify the use of our services. User categories constitute the foundation for a strategic orientation of advertisement that serves our customers interest. Measuring the usage of our website is imperative for our marketing efforts and comparison with others in the market. Our legitimate interest stems from the economic usability of the findings that originate from user categories and statistics, and the market value of our website, which can be determined by comparing our statistics to those of third-party websites.
In addition, we have a legitimate interest in providing pseudonymised data to INFOnline, the AGOF and IVW for the purpose of market research (AGOF, AGMA) and for statistical purposes (INFOnline, IVW). Furthermore, we have a legitimate interest in using the pseudonymised data from INFOnline to develop and provide advertising material in accordance with the specific interests of our customers.
Nature of the Data
INFOnline GmbH gathers the following data, which are considered to be of personal nature according to the EU GDPR:
- IP-address: Every device is required to have a unique address for the purpose of transferring data, the so-called IP-address. Storing this IP-address, at least temporarily, is a necessity due to the operating principle of the internet. IP-addresses are shortened by 1 byte and anonymized before being processed. There is no further processing or storage of the IP-address in its full length.
- A randomly-generated client identifier: The processing system uses either a cookie with the identification “ioam.de”, a “local storage object”, or a signature compiled from various data transferred by the browser to recognise a computer system. This identifier is unique to a browser, so long as the cookie or local storage device is not deleted. Measuring data and subsequent matching to the respective client identifier will therefore also be possible if you visit websites that also use the measuring procedure (“SZMnG”) of INFOnline. The validity of the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.
Usage of Data
The measuring procedure of INFOnline GmbH, which is used on this website, determines usage data. This is done for the purpose of generating the performance values of page impressions, visits, clients and other additional figures (such as qualified clients). The data measured during this process is used as follows:
- A so-called geo-localisation, the process of matching a website access to the location of the access, is carried out exclusively based on anonymised IP-addresses and only to the level of federal state or region. Under no circumstances will it be possible to determine the exact location of the user.
- The user data of a technology-based client (e.g. a browser on a device) are merged across web pages and stored in a database. This information is used to estimate social data, such as age and gender, and is forwarded to the service provider of AGOF to further analyse the reach of each website. The AGOF study estimates sociometrical data based on a randomised sample, which can be further subcategorized into age, gender, nationality, occupation, marital status, general household information, household income, place of residence, internet usage, online interests, location of use, user type.
Duration of Data Storage
The complete IP-address is not stored by INFOnline GmbH. The shortened IP-address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. User data in combination with a unique identifier is stored for a maximum of 6 months.
Disclosure of Data
The IP-address as well as the shortened IP-address will never be disclosed. Data with client identifiers for the AGOF study are disclosed to the following service providers of the AGOF:
- Kantar Deutschland GmbH (https://www.tns-infratest.com/)
- Ankordata GmbH & Co. KG (http://www.ankordata.de/homepage/)
- Interrogare GmbH (https://www.interrogare.de/)
If you do not wish to participate in this collection of data, you have the right to revoke your consent. To do this, please click on the following link: https://optout.ioam.de
It is necessary to install a cookie to guarantee exclusion from this collection of data. If you delete the cookie in your browser, it will become necessary to repeat the opt-out procedure.
Additional information about data protection with respect to the measurement methods can be found on the INFOnline website (https://www.infonline.de), which is in charge of these measuring procedures, as well as on the website of AGOF (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the website of IVW (http://www.ivw.eu).
UNIQ GmbH uses technical and organisational security measures in order to ensure the protection of your data from loss, false alterations and unauthorised access by third parties.
