Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve to make the Internet offer more user-friendly and effective overall.

(3) Use of cookies:

a) This website / app uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:

  • Transient cookies (see b)
  • Persistent cookies (see c).

b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. This includes in particular the session cookies. These save a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the common session. This means that your computer can be recognized when you return to our website / app. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which can differ depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.

§ 4 Further functions and offers on our website or app

(1) In addition to purely informational use, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. To do this, you usually have to provide additional personal data that we use to provide the respective service and for which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.

(2) In some cases, we use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are checked regularly.

(3) Furthermore, we can pass on your personal data to third parties if we offer participation in campaigns, competitions, contracts or similar services together with partners. You will receive more information on this when you provide your personal data or in the description of the offer below.

(5) Social media buttons with data protection (Shariff)
We use so-called "social plugins" on our website and in the application. Currently these are the plugins for the Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, E-Mail and WhatsApp services. This enables the user to quickly and easily share TransparentShare with friends on social networks. Via these plugins, data, including personal data, can be sent to the US service providers and, if necessary, used by them.

We do not collect any personal data ourselves using the social plugins or their use. In order to prevent data from being transmitted to service providers in the USA without the knowledge of the user, we use the so-called Shariff solution. This solution ensures that initially no personal data is passed on to the providers of the individual social plugins when you visit our website or our application. Only when you click on one of the social plugins can data be transferred to the service provider and saved there.

You can find more information about the Shariff solution on the provider's website, Heise Medien GmbH & Co. KG: http://m.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html

When exercising such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust the data processing or show you our compelling reasons worthy of protection on the basis of which we will continue processing.

Conclusion of an order processing contract
We have concluded a contract with SendinBlue in which we oblige SendinBlue to protect our customers' data and not to pass them on to third parties.

(6) Hotjar: Our website uses the Hotjar web analysis service from Hotjar Ltd .. Hotjar Ltd. is a European company based in Malta (Hotjar Ltd, Level 2, St Julians Business Center, 3, Elia Zammit Street, St Julians STJ 1000, Malta, Europe, Tel: +1 (855) 464-6788).

This tool can be used to track movements on the websites on which Hotjar is used (so-called heatmaps). For example, it can be seen how far users scroll and which buttons users click and how often. The tool can also be used to obtain feedback directly from website users. Above all, Hotjar's services can improve the functionality of the Hotjar-based website by making them more user-friendly, more valuable and easier to use for end users.

When using this tool, we pay particular attention to the protection of your personal data. So we can only understand which buttons are clicked, the course of the mouse, how far is scrolled, the screen size of the device, device type and browser information, geographical location (only the country) and the preferred language to display our website. Areas of the websites in which personal data from you or third parties are displayed are automatically hidden by Hotjar and are therefore never traceable. In order to exclude direct personal reference, IP addresses are only stored anonymously and processed further. However, Hotjar uses various third-party services such as Google Analytics and Optimizely. It can therefore be the case that these services collect data that is transmitted by your browser as part of web page requests. This would be, for example, cookies or your IP address. In these exceptional cases, this processing takes place in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR based on the consent you have given for the purpose of statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes.

Hotjar offers every user the option of preventing the use of the Hotjar tool with the help of a “Do Not Track Header” so that no data is recorded about the visit to the respective website. This is a setting that all common browsers support in current versions. To do this, your browser sends a request to Hotjar to deactivate the tracking of the respective user. If you use our websites with different browsers / computers, you have to set up the “Do Not Track-Header” for each of these browsers / computers separately.

When visiting a Hotjar-based website, you can prevent Hotjar from collecting your data at any time by going to our opt-out page https://www.hotjar.com/legal/compliance/opt-out/ go and click Deactivate Hotjar.

This enables the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimized. The data collected are anonymous for us as the operator of this website; we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the 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 guidelines. This enables Facebook to switch advertisements on Facebook pages as well as outside of Facebook. As the website operator, we cannot influence this use of the data. You will find further information on protecting your privacy in Facebook's data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of Google Ads customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie in your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
