5.6 Google Analytics
- 5.6.2 The information generated by the cookie about your use of this Platform is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it is saved. However, because IP anonymisation has been enabled on this Platform, your IP address will be truncated in advance by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other countries outside of the European Union which are signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA before it is truncated. The IP address identified from your browser by Google Analytics will not be merged with other data collected by Google. On behalf of the operator of this Platform, Google uses this information to analyse your use of the Platform, to compile reports on the Platform activities and to provide other services for the Platform operator related to the use of the Platform and internet usage.
- 5.6.3 You can prevent the storage of cookies via the relevant setting in your browser software. Please note, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all of the functions on this Platform. You can also prevent the recording of the data collected by the cookie with respect to your use of the Platform (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing a browser add-on (available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB). Opt-out cookies prevent your data from being collected during any future visits to this Platform. In order to prevent the collection of data by Universal Analytics across multiple devices, you must opt out on all the systems that you use.
- 5.6.4 We use Google Analytics in order to pursue our legitimate interests of building a service that meets our customer's needs, enabling statistical analysis and promoting our Platform efficiently. The legal basis for this is established in point (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR.
5.7 Google AdWords
- 5.7.1 We use the services of Google AdWords (including Google AdWords remarketing) so that we can place advertisements (called “Google AdWords”) on external Platforms for the purpose of drawing attention to attractive offers. Using the data gathered from these advertising campaigns, we are able to determine how effective individual advertisements are. We use this tool to show you advertisements that might interest you, to make our Platform more appealing to your specific interests, and to calculate our advertising costs in a fair manner.
- 5.7.2 These advertisements are delivered by Google via what are known as ad servers. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies that enable us to gauge success by means of a number of metrics, such as how often advertisements are displayed and how many times they are clicked by users. If you are linked to our Platform by a Google advertisement, Google AdWords will save a cookie on your device. These cookies will normally expire after 90 days and are not used to identify you personally. A cookie of this type will normally contain data for analysis such as the unique cookie ID, the number of ad impressions for each placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (a flag specifying that the user no longer wishes to be shown advertisements).
- 5.7.3 These cookies allow Google to recognise your internet browser. If a user visits specific pages on the Platform of an AdWords customer and the cookie saved on the user's computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer are able to discern that the user has clicked on the advertisement and was linked to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each AdWords customer. It is therefore not possible to track cookies via the websites of AdWords customers. We do not collect or process any personal data ourselves in the aforementioned advertisements. Rather, we simply receive statistical analyses of the data from Google. Based on these analyses, we are able to determine which of the advertisements placed are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising, nor in particular are we able to use this information to identify users.
