Section IV - Definitions

This section provides an overview of the terms used in this Privacy Policy. The following explanations, on the other hand, are intended primarily for understanding. The terms are sorted alphabetically.

A/B Tests - A/B Tests are designed to improve the usability and performance of online services. For example, users are shown different versions of a website or its elements, such as input forms, on which the placement of the content or labels of the navigation elements can differ. Subsequently, it is possible to determine which of these websites or elements are more suited to the needs of the users on the basis of the users’ behaviour, e.g. longer stays on the website or more frequent interaction with the elements of the website.

Affiliate Links - Affiliate links are links that are used to refer users to websites with product or other offers. The operators of the respective linking websites can receive a commission if users follow the affiliate links and then take advantage of the offers. For this it is necessary that the providers can track whether users who are interested in certain offers subsequently purchase them at the initiative of the affiliate links. Therefore, the functionality of affiliate links requires that they be supplemented by certain values that become part of the link or are otherwise stored, e.g. in a cookie. The values include in particular the initial website (referrer), the time, an online identification of the operator of the website on which the affiliate link was located, an online identification of the respective offer, an online identification of the user, as well as Tracking specific values such as, for example, advertising material ID, partner ID and categorisations.

After-Sales – After-Sales is a marketing procedure in which, for example, customers of an online shop are presented with advertising offers from other companies (which are usually based on the services or products purchased in the online shop). Furthermore, the functionality of after-sales corresponds to the functionality of affiliate links.

Aggregated Data - Aggregated personal information is pooled personal information that cannot be traced back to a person and is therefore not personal. For example, visit times on a website can be saved as median values.

Click Tracking - “Click Tracking” allows to track the movements of users within an entire website. Since the results of these tests are more accurate if the user interaction can be monitored over a certain period of time (e.g. if a user likes to return), cookies are usually stored on the user’s computers for these test purposes.

Conversion - “Conversion”, or “Conversion measurement” refers to a procedure with which the effectiveness of marketing measures can be determined. As a rule, a cookie is stored on the user’s devices within the websites on which the marketing activities take place and then retrieved again on the target website (e.g. this enables us to trace whether the ads we placed on other websites were effective).

Cookies - Cookies are small files that are stored on the user’s computer. Different personal information can be stored in the cookies. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his or her visit to a website. Temporary cookies, or “session cookies” or “transient cookies”, are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves a website and closes his browser. In such a cookie, for example, the content of a shopping basket in an online shop or a login status within a community can be stored. Cookies are referred to as “permanent” or “persistent” if they are stored even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved permanently. Likewise, the interests of users used for Web Analytics or marketing purposes (see e.g. “Remarketing”) may be stored in such a cookie. As a “third party cookie”, cookies are offered by providers other than the operator of the website (otherwise, if they are only the operator’s cookies, they are referred to as “first party cookies”).

Cross-Device-Tracking - Cookies and fingerprints are device-related. Cross-device Tracking is required to evaluate the interests of users using smartphones for advertising on desktop PCs. Logins in social networks such as Facebook, for example, can be used for this purpose. Alternatively, location personal information, IP addresses and user behaviour are used to achieve up to 98% more precise user restriction. Cookies and Web beacons are usually used for cross-device Tracking purposes.

Custom Audiences - Custom audiences are people who are targeted for advertising purposes, e.g. the display of advertisements. For example, based on a user’s interest in certain products or topics on the Internet, it may be concluded that the user is interested in advertisements for similar products or the online shop in which he has viewed the products. “Lookalike Audiences” are users whose profiles or interests presumably correspond to the users for whom the profiles were created. Cookies and Web beacons are usually used for the purpose of creating Custom Audiences and Lookalike Audiences. “Custom Audiences from Website” means that the target groups are formed on the basis of visitors of the own website. “Custom Audiences from File” means that, for example, a list of e-mail addresses is uploaded to the respective advertising network or platform to form the target group.

Data subject – “Data subject” refers to any individual person who can be identified, directly or indirectly through identifier information.

Demographic Data - Demographic personal information is general information about groups of people or persons, e.g. characteristics such as age, gender, place of residence and social characteristics such as occupation, marital status or income. Demographic personal information is collected within the scope of Web Analytics and in online marketing for the purposes of online behavioural marketing or for business analyses that are used, for example, to determine the target groups.

Embedding - Embedding involves integrating external content or software functions (see “Plug-ins”) into one’ s own website in such a way that they are displayed or executed on this website. No copy of the content is created because it is called from the original server (e.g. videos, images, posts on social networks, widgets with ratings). With Embedding, it is technically necessary for the provider of the content to obtain the IP address of the user in order to display the Embedded content in the user’s browser. Furthermore, the content provider may, for example, store cookies on the user’s devices.

Advanced matching - The “advanced matching” is a Facebook pixel option, which means that name and contact information such as phone numbers, email addresses or Facebook IDs of users are transmitted to Facebook in encrypted form to form target groups for Facebook ads and are used only for this purpose.

Error Tracking - During error Tracking, e.g. incorrectly executed program code is detected in order to eliminate it and thus guarantee the functionality and security of websites.

Fingerprints and other online identifiers - “Fingerprints” correspond in their function to cookies, whereby the storage of a file on the user’s device is not required. These digital fingerprints can be individually created as cross sums of individual factors of devices, e.g. computing power or browser plug-ins for devices, and thus used for Web Analytics, Profiling, Remarketing, online- and behavioural advertising.

First-Party Cookies – See “Cookies”.

Heatmaps - “Heatmaps” are mouse movements of the users, which are combined to an overall picture, with the help of which e.g. it is possible to recognize which website elements are preferred and which website elements users prefer less.

IP address - The IP address (“IP” stands for Internet Protocol) is a sequence of numbers that can be used to identify devices connected to the Internet. When a user visits a website on a server, he informs the server of his IP address. The server then knows that it must send the personal information packets containing the content of the website to this address.

IP Masking - IP Masking is a method in which the last octet, i.e. the last two numbers of an IP address, are deleted so that the IP address can no longer be used to uniquely identify a person. Therefore, IP Masking is a means of Pseudonymizing processing methods, especially in online marketing.

Lookalike Audiences – See “Custom Audiences”.

Online Behavioural Advertising (OBA) - online behavioural advertising is the term used when Profiling is used to assess the potential interest of users in advertising. Cookies and Web beacons are usually used for these purposes.

Opt-in - The term “opt-in” means, depending on the context, the same as registration or consent. If a registration (e.g. by entering an e-mail address in an online form field) is confirmed by sending an e-mail with a confirmation link to the owner of the e-mail address, this is referred to as a Double-Opt-In (DOI).

Opt-Out - The term Opt-Out means unsubscription and may be an objection (e.g. against Tracking) or a cancellation (e.g. for newsletter subscriptions).

Opt-Out-Cookie - An “Opt-Out-Cookie” is a small file (see “Cookies”) which is stored in your browser and in which it is noted that, for example, a Tracking service should not process your personal information. The “opt-out cookie” only applies to the browser in which it was saved, i.e. in which you clicked the opt-out link. If cookies are deleted in this browser, you must click the opt-out link again. Furthermore, an opt-out link can only be limited to the domain on which the opt-out link was clicked.

Permanent Cookies – See “Cookies”.

Personal Information - “Personal information” means any information about an identifiable individual or other information that is subject to applicable privacy laws in Canada, and includes identifiers such as a name, identification number, or location.

Plugins/ Social Plugins - Plugins (or “Social Plugins” in the case of social functions) are external software functions that are integrated into a website. For example, they can be used to output interaction elements (e.g., a “I like” button) or content (e.g., external commenting function or postings in social networks).

Processor - “Processor” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal information on behalf of the controller;

Profiling - ”Profiling” means any automated processing of personal information consisting in the use of such personal information to analyse, evaluate or predict certain personal aspects relating to a natural person (depending on the type of Profiling, this includes information regarding age, gender, location and movement personal information, interaction with websites and their contents, shopping behaviour, social interactions with other people) (e.g. interests in certain contents or products, click behaviour on a website or the location). Cookies and Web beacons are often used for Profiling purposes.

Pseudonymization/ Pseudonyms / Pseudonymous - “Pseudonymization” means the processing of personal information in such a manner that the personal information can no longer be attributed to a specific personal information subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal information is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person; E.g. if an exact interest profile of the computer user is stored in a cookie (a “marketing avatar”), but not the name of the user, then personal information is processed Pseudonymously. If his name is stored, e.g. as part of his e-mail address or his IP address is stored, then the processing is no longer Pseudonymous.

Web Analytics - Web Analytics is used to evaluate the visitor flows of a website and can include their behaviour, interests or demographic information, e.g. age or gender. With the help of range analysis, website owners, for example, can see what types of people visit their website at what time and what content they are interested in. This enables them, for example, to better optimize the content of the website to the needs of their visitors. Cookies and Web beacons are often used for Web Analytics purposes.

Remarketing/ Retargeting - “Remarketing” or “Retargeting” is used when, for example, for advertising purposes is noted which products a user is interested in on a website in order to remind the user on other websites of these products, e.g. in advertisements. Cookies are usually used for retargeting purposes.

Session Cookies – “Cookies”.

Single-Sign-On - Single-Sign-On” or “Single-Sign-On-Authentication” is a procedure that allows users to log on to an online service, using other online services, they are members with. A requirement for Single-Sign-On authentication is that users are registered with the respective Single-Sign-On provider and enter the required credentials on the web form provided for this purpose. Authentication takes place directly with the respective Single Sign-On provider. As part of such authentication, we receive a user ID with the information that the user is logged in under this user ID at the respective Single Sign-On provider and an ID that can no longer be used by us (so-called “user handle”). Whether we receive further personal information depends solely on the Single Sign-On procedure used, the selected personal information shares as part of authentication and also which personal information users have authorised in the privacy or other settings of the user account with the Single Sign-On provider. Depending on the Single Sign-On provider and the choice of users, it can be different personal information, usually the e-mail address and the user name. The password entered as part of the Single Sign-On procedure is neither visible to us nor is it stored by us. Users are asked to note that their personal information stored with us can be automatically synchronized with their user account with the Single-Sign-On provider, but this is not always possible or actually occurs. If, for example, the e-mail addresses of users change, users must change these manually in their user account at our site. If users decide that they no longer want to use their user account link with the Single-Sign-On provider for the Single-Sign-On procedure, they must cancel this link within their user account held with the Single-Sign-On provider. If users wish to erase their personal information from our system, they must cancel their registration at our service.

Third Party - “Third party” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the personal information subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal information.

Third Party Cookies – See “Cookies”.

Tracking - Tracking is defined as when the behaviour of users can be traced across several online offers, e.g. for Remarketing purposes. The behavioural and interest information collected with regard to the online services used is stored as user profiles in cookies or on the servers of marketing service providers (e.g. Google or Facebook).

Universal Analytics - “Universal Analytics” is a Google Analytics process in which the user analysis is based on a Pseudonymous user ID and a Pseudonymous profile of the user with information from the use of various devices is created (“cross-device Tracking”).

Controller – “controller” means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal information.

Processing – “processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal information or on sets of personal information, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction;

Tracking pixels – See Web beacons.

Web beacons - Web beacons (or “pixels”, “measuring pixels” or “Tracking pixels”) are small, pixel-sized graphics that are integrated into Web pages or HTML e-mails. For example, they allow to determine whether an e-mail has been opened (at least if the image display in e-mails is enabled) or how often a website is accessed by a user.

Widgets – See Embedding.
