NETCONOMY GmbH uses the following tools/cookies:

a) Google analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). Google Analytics uses a functional cookie. Google Analytics also creates a Remarketing Tag to retarget a user via Google Ads, which is an advertising cookie.

It cannot be excluded that the collected information may be transferred to a Google server in a third country and saved there, especially a server of Google’s parent company, Google LLC, based in 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, USA. In that case, personal data will be transferred to the USA based on Article 46 paragraph 2 item c) of the GDPR – standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission.

The IP anonymization function is activated on this website and Google will shorten your IP address prior to storing it; this shall be done for all member states of the European Union or in other states where the agreement pertaining to the European Economic Area applies. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use said information to analyze your use of this website, to create reports on website activities and to provide other services affiliated with the website usage and internet usage for the operator of the website. It this case, pseudonymous user accounts can be created based on the processed data. The IP address delivered from your browser and shortened by Google Analytics will not be combined with other data of Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by activating the corresponding setting in your browser software. However, disabling the cookies used by our website may mean you will not have full access to functions of our website.

More information on Google’s use of data for advertising purposes and possibilities concerning the settings and contradiction can be found on Google’s websites:

b) Google Ads

Our websites use Google Ads, a web analytics service that uses advertising cookies. Google Ads also uses “cookies” stored on your computer that allow analysis of your use of the website. Google Ads also creates a Remarketing Tag to retarget a user via Google Ads, which is an advertising cookie. It helps us in understanding what actions users are taking and in targeting them more specifically based on their interests and actions. We can’t see any individual information of the users, it just gives us an option to retarget the groups of people that have taken certain action. We access this information through Google Analytics and Google Data studio. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators, and providing other services related to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or in so far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will in no case connect the data with other data from Google.

c) Facebook Ads Manager

Our online activities include the usage of the “Facebook Pixel” developed by Facebook, Inc. (1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA). This tool is an advertising cookie that makes it possible to track the behavior of users who have clicked on a Facebook ad and been directed to the website of the provider in question. The effectiveness of Facebook ads can then be assessed for statistical and market research purposes, which in turn can help optimize future advertising measures. The data we obtain through this process are anonymous, meaning it gives us no means of tracing the identity of any user – we can only target certain groups through Facebook Business manager. This information is stored and processed by Facebook on servers in the USA, in order to facilitate a connection to each user’s profile. Facebook can then use the data for its own advertising purposes in line with its data usage guidelines (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). As a result, Facebook and its partners can insert ads both on and outside of Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes.

d) LinkedIn Campaign Manager

Our online activities include the usage of the “LinkedIn Insight Tag”, an advertising cookie, provided by LinkedIn Corporation (2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). We use the LinkedIn Insight Tag to track conversions, retarget website visitors, and unlock additional insights about members interacting with our LinkedIn ads. The LinkedIn Insight Tag enables the collection of metadata such as IP address information, timestamp, and events such as page views. All data are encrypted. The LinkedIn browser cookie is stored in a visitor’s browser until they delete the cookie, or the cookie expires. With the help of the LinkedIn Insight Tag we are able to analyze the success of our campaigns within the LinkedIn platform or determine target groups for them based on the interaction of the users with our website. We can never see individual data – we can only target certain groups through LinkedIn campaign manager. If you are registered with LinkedIn, it is possible for LinkedIn to associate your interaction with our online services with your user account. You can permanently opt out on this link: https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out. For more information on the Linkedin Privacy Policy, go to: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.
