We offer visitors to our website the opportunity to contact us via WhatsApp Ireland Limited’s WhatsApp messaging service, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. For this we use the so-called “business version” of WhatsApp.

For the operation of our WhatsApp Business account, we use a mobile device in whose address book only the WhatsApp contact data of such users who have also contacted us via WhatsApp are stored.

This ensures that every person whose WhatsApp contact details are stored in our address book is already, upon the first use of the app on his device, by accepting the WhatsApp Terms of Service in the transmission of his WhatsApp phone number from the address books of his chat contacts in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR. In this respect, the transmission of data of such users who do not use WhatsApp and/or have not contacted us via WhatsApp is excluded.

When you subscribe to our e-mail newsletter, we regularly send you information about our offers. The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The provision of additional data is voluntary and will be used to address you personally. For sending the newsletter we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that we will not send you an e-mail newsletter until you have expressly confirmed to us that you consent to receiving newsletters. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm by clicking on a corresponding link that you want to receive the newsletter in the future.

By activating the confirmation link, you give us your consent for the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 1 lit. a GDPR. When you register for the newsletter, we store your IP address entered by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of the registration in order to be able to understand a possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later time. The data collected by us when registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively for the purpose of advertising by means of the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link provided for this purpose in the newsletter or by sending a corresponding message to the person responsible above. After unsubscribing, your e-mail address will be deleted immediately in our newsletter mailing list, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use any further data, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

6.2 Sending newsletters via Sendinblue

Our e-mail newsletters are sent via the technical service provider Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenicker Str. 126, 10179 Berlin, to whom we pass on your data provided when registering for the newsletter. This transfer shall take place in accordance with Art. 1 lit. f GDPR and serves our legitimate interest in the use of an advertising-effective, secure and user-friendly newsletter system. The data you enter for newsletter purchase (e.g. e-mail address) is stored on Sendinblue’s servers in the EU.

Sendinblue uses this information to send and statistically evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. For the evaluation, the e-mails sent include so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which represent one-pixel image files that are stored on our website. This allows you to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked if necessary. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). The data is collected exclusively pseudonymously and is not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal data is excluded. This data is used exclusively for statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of recipients. If you wish to object to the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter subscription.

Furthermore, Sendinblue may collect this data in accordance with Art. 1 lit. f USE the GDPR itself, due to its own legitimate interest in the needs-based design and optimisation of the service, as well as for market research purposes, to determine, for example, which countries the recipients come from. However, Sendinblue does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them themselves or to pass them on to third parties.

We have entered into an order processing agreement with Sendinblue that obliges Sendinblue to protect our customers’ data and not to disclose it to third parties.

6.3 WhatsApp Newsletter

When you sign up for our WhatsApp newsletter, we regularly send you information about our offers via WhatsApp. The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your mobile phone number.

To send the newsletter, include our mobile phone number in the address contacts of your mobile device and send us the message “Start” via WhatsApp. By sending this WhatsApp message, you give us your consent for the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 1 lit. a GDPR for the purpose of newslette transmission.

The data collected by us when registering for the newsletter will be processed exclusively for the purpose of advertising by means of the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by sending us the message “Stop” via WhatsApp. After unsubscribing, your mobile phone number will be deleted immediately in our newsletter distributor, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use your data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

Please note that WhatsApp will have access to the address book of the mobile device we use to send the newsletter and will automatically transfer phone numbers stored in the address book to a Facebook server in the USA.

For the sending of our WhatsApp newsletter, we therefore use a mobile device, in whose address book only the WhatsApp contact data of our newsletter recipients are stored. This ensures that every person whose WhatsApp contact details are stored in our address book is already, upon the first use of the app on his device, by accepting the WhatsApp Terms of Service in the transmission of his WhatsApp phone number from the address books of his chat contacts in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR. In this respect, the transmission of data of such users who do not use WhatsApp and/or have not contacted us via WhatsApp is excluded.

8) Use of social media: social plugins

8.1 Facebook plugins with 2-click solution

Our website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).

In order to increase the protection of your data when visiting our website, the plugins are initially deactivated by means of a so-called “2-click” solution integrated into the page. Disabled plugins can be recognized by the fact that they are grey. This integration ensures that when a page of our website containing such plugins is accessed, no connection is made to the facebook servers. Only when you activate the plugins and thus in accordance with Art. 1 lit. a GDPR to give your consent to the data transfer, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the respective plugin is transmitted directly to your browser and integrated into the page. The plugin then transmits data (including your IP address) to Facebook. We have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of the plugins. As far as we know, Facebook will in any case receive information about which of our websites you have accessed up-to-date and previously. By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile on Facebook or are not currently logged in. The information collected (including your IP address) is sent from your browser directly to a Facebook Inc. server. transmitted to the USA and stored there. When you interact with the plugins, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also posted to Facebook and displayed to your contacts.

You can revoke your consent at any time by disabling the activated plugin by clicking again. However, the revocation has no influence on the data that has already been transferred to Facebook.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php

8.2 Instagram plugin as Shariff solution

Our website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) of the online service Instagram, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland (“Facebook”).

In order to increase the protection of your data when you visit our website, these buttons are not fully integrated as plugins, but only by using an HTML link in the page. This type of integration ensures that when you visit a page of our website that contains such buttons, no connection is made to Instagram’s servers. When you click the button, a new browser window opens and opens the Instagram page where you can interact with the plugins there (if necessary after entering your login details).

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Instagram as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in Instagram’s privacy policy: https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388/

 

9) Using Social Media: Videos

Using Youtube videos

This website uses the Youtube embedding function to display and play videos of the provider “Youtube”, which belongs to Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).

This uses the extended data protection mode, which, according to the provider, does not initiate the storage of user information until the video is played. When playback of embedded Youtube videos is started, the provider “Youtube” uses cookies to collect information about user behavior. According to “Youtube” notes, these serve, among other things, to collect video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to prevent abusive behaviour. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly associated with your account when you click on a video. If you do not want to be assigned to your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as user profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation shall be carried out in particular in accordance with Article 6(p). 1 lit. f GDPR based on Google’s legitimate interests in displaying personalized advertising, market research and/or customising its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must address YouTube in order to exercise this. In the context of the use of Youtube, it may also lead to the transfer of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the United States.
Irrespective of the playback of the embedded videos, a connection to the Google network is established each time this website is accessed, which can trigger further data processing operations without our influence.

For more information on data protection at YouTube, please refer to the provider’s privacy policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy

To the extent legally required, we have your consent in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, disable this service in the “Cookie Consent Tool” provided on the website.

 

10) Online marketing

10.1 Facebook Pixel for creating Custom Audiences with advanced data matching (with cookie-consent tool)
Within our online offer, the so-called “Facebook pixel” of the social network Facebook is used in the extended data matching mode, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).
On the basis of his express consent, when a user clicks on an ad played on Facebook and placed by us, an addition is added to the URL of our linked page by Facebook Pixel. This URL parameter is then inscribed in the user’s browser via cookie, which sets our linked page itself. In addition, this cookie collects specific customer data, such as the e-mail address that we collect on our website linked to the Facebook ad during transactions such as purchases, account registrations or registrations (extended data matching). The cookie is then read out by Facebook Pixel and allows the data, including the specific customer data, to be forwarded to Facebook.
With the help of the Facebook pixel with extended data matching, Facebook is on the one hand possible to precisely identify the visitors of our online offer as the target group for the display of advertisements (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel with extended data matching to display the Facebook ads we serve only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined by the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”). With the help of the Facebook pixel with extended data matching, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads meet the potential interest of users and do not have a harassing effect. This allows us to further evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by tracking whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion”). Compared to the standard version of Facebook Pixel, the advanced data matching feature helps us better measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns by capturing more associated conversions.
All transmitted data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook data usage policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). The data may allow Facebook and its partners to run ads on and off Facebook.
These processing operations shall be carried out exclusively upon the granting of express consent in accordance with Article 6(s). 1 lit. a GDPR.
Consent to the use of the Facebook pixel may only be given by users older than 13 years of age. If you are younger, we ask you to ask your legal guardian for permission.
The information generated by Facebook is usually transmitted to a Facebook server and stored there, where it can also be transmitted to the servers of Facebook Inc. in the United States. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, remove the check mark placed in the “Cookie Consent Tool” on the website next to the “Facebook Pixel” setting.

10.2 Using Google Ads Conversion Tracking

This website uses the online advertising program “Google Ads” and, as part of Google Ads, the conversion tracking of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). We use the offer of Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising materials (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. In doing so, we are committed to displaying advertisements that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting to you and to achieve a fair calculation of the advertising costs incurred.

The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ads ad placed by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked through the websites of Google Ads customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers will find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and have been redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can block this use by disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via your Internet browser under the keyword “User Settings”. They are then not included in the conversion tracking statistics. We use Google Ads on the basis of our legitimate interest in targeted advertising according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f GDPR. In the context of the use of Google Ads, it may also result in the transfer of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the United States.
