5.1.1.  Google Analytics

 

For the purpose of the need-based design and continuous optimization of our pages, we use Google Analytics on www.fabvote.com, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter "Google").

 

When Google Analytics is used, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see section 3) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this site such as

 

* Browser type/version,

* operating system used,

* Referrer URL (the previously visited page),

* Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),

* Time of the server request,

 

are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide other services related to website and Internet use for market research purposes and to design these Internet pages in line with requirements. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of third parties. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).

 

We have a legitimate interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offering. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is therefore Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO.

 

We have concluded a contract with Google for order data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

 

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

 

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

 

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from capturing data by clicking this link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent your data from being collected in the future when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie applies only in this browser and only to our website and is placed on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

 

Google Inc. is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with the European level of data protection (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7105316?hl=en). Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found in the Google Analytics help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en).

 

5.1.2. Google RE/Marketing Services

 

At www.fabvote.com we use the marketing and remarketing services ("Google Marketing Services") of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").

 

Google's marketing services allow us to display advertisements for and on our website in a more targeted manner to show users only ads that potentially match their interests. If, for example, a user is shown ads for products in which he is interested on other websites, this is referred to as "remarketing". For these purposes, when you visit our and other websites on which Google marketing services are active, Google directly executes a code from Google and incorporates so-called (re)marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as "web beacons") into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, i.e. a small file, is stored on the user's device (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). 

 

This purpose constitutes a legitimate interest of FABVOTE (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f.). DSGVO.

 

The cookies can be set by various domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. In this file it is noted which websites the user visits, which contents he is interested in and which offers he has clicked, furthermore technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time as well as further information about the use of the online offer. The IP address of the user is also recorded, whereby we inform within the scope of Google Analytics that the IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area is shortened and only in exceptional cases completely transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address is not merged with user data within other Google offers. Google may also link the above information to such information from other sources. If the user subsequently visits other websites, the ads tailored to the user's interests can be displayed.

 

User data is processed pseudonymously within the framework of Google marketing services. I.e. Google does not store and process the name or e-mail address of the user, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. This means that, from Google's point of view, the ads are not administered and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie holder, regardless of who this cookie holder is. This does not apply if a user has expressly permitted Google to process the data without this pseudonymisation. The information Google Marketing Services collects about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the United States.

 

One of the Google marketing services we use is the online advertising program "Google AdWords". In the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords customer receives a different "conversion cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected through the cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. AdWords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users.

 

These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on the AdWords customer's website and the cookie has not expired, Google and the customer will be able to tell that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page.

 

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

 

You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com". Google's Privacy Policy for Conversion Tracking can be found here (https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html).

 

We may also use the "Google Tag Manager" to integrate and manage the Google analytics and marketing services into our website.

 

You can find out more about Google's use of data for marketing purposes on the overview page: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads, Google's privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy

 

If you wish to opt out of interest-based advertising through Google Marketing Services, you may use the opt-out and setting options provided by Google: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences.

 

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European privacy laws (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

 

 

5.1.3.  Facebook Pixel, Custom Audiences and Facebook Conversion

 

Within our online offer on www.fabvote.com and the FABVOTE-APP we use the so-called "Facebook pixel" of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook").

 

With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is able to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the presentation of ads (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use Facebook pixels to display Facebook ads placed by us only to Facebook users who have shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain features (e.g., interests in certain topics or products that are determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "custom audiences"). With the help of Facebook pixels, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of users and do not appear annoying. The Facebook pixel also enables us to track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing if users were referred to our site after clicking on a Facebook ad (known as "conversion").

 

We have a legitimate interest in analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer, legal basis for the use of Facebook pixels is therefore Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO.

 

Facebook processes the data in accordance with the Facebook Data Usage Policy. Accordingly, general information about the presentation of Facebook ads in the Facebook Data Usage Policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. Special information and details about Facebook pixels and how they work can be found in the Facebook help section: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.

 

You may opt out of Facebook pixel collection and use of your information to display Facebook ads. To set what types of ads you see within Facebook, you can go to the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions on the settings for usage-based ads: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

 

You may also opt out of the use of cookies to measure reach and for advertising purposes via the Network Advertising Initiative's opt-out page (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/) and the US website (http://www.aboutads.info/choices) or the European website (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/).

 

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active). Privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
