We can use temporary and permanent cookies and clarify this in the context of our privacy policy.

Insofar as we ask users to consent to the use of cookies (e.g. as part of a cookie consent), the legal basis of this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a. GDPR. Otherwise, the personal cookies of the users according to the following explanations in the context of this Privacy Policy on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para 1 lit.

In conclusion, our online offering requires us to be able to keep track of whether users who are interested in affiliate links and / or the offers available to us, then take advantage of the offers on the affiliate links or our online platform. For this, the affiliate links and our offers are supplemented by certain values, which can be part of the link or otherwise, e.g. in a cookie. The values ​​include in particular the source website (referrer), time, an online identifier of the operator of the website on which the affiliate link was located, an online identifier of the respective offer, an online identifier of the user, as well as tracking specific values ​​such as ad ID, affiliate ID and categorization.

The online user IDs used by us are pseudonymous values. This means that the online identifiers themselves do not contain personal data such as names or e-mail addresses. They only help us to determine if the same user who clicked on an affiliate link or was interested in an offer via our online offer has accepted the offer, i.e. has signed a contract with the provider. However, the online identification is personal insofar that both us and the partner company have the online identification together with user data available. Only then can the partner company tell us whether the user has taken advantage of the offer to pay out our bonus.

Within our online offer the so-called “Twitter Universal Website Tag” of the social network Twitter, which is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (“Twitter”), is used.

With the help of the Twitter Universal Website Tag, it is on the one hand possible for Twitter to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the presentation of advertisements (so-called “Twitter ads”). Accordingly, we use the Twitter Universal Website Tag to display the Twitter Ads we have been sent only to those Twitter users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain features (e.g. interests in certain topics or products visited by them), which we transmit to Twitter (so-called “Custom Audiences”). With the help of the Twitter Universal Website Tag, we also want to make sure that our Twitter ads are in line with the potential interest of users and are not annoying.

Online presence in social media

We maintain online presence within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, prospects and users active there and to inform them about our services.

We point out that data of the users outside the area of ​​the European Union can be processed. This can result in risks for the users, because for example the enforcement of the rights of the users could be made more difficult. With respect to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we point out that they are committed to respecting EU privacy standards.

Furthermore, the data of the users are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created from the user behavior and resulting user interests. The usage profiles can, in turn, be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are supposedly in line with the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users, in which the user behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, in the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the devices used by the users (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and logged in to them).

The processing of personal data of users is based on our legitimate interests in an effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers of the platforms for a consent to the above-described data processing, the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.

For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of contradiction (opt-out), we refer to the following linked information of the provider.

Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be claimed most effectively from the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, then you can contact us.
