5. web analysis services

5.1 Tracking Tools

The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 a GDPR. Please also read our general information on cookies under section 3.

With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure that our website is designed to meet requirements and is continually optimised. We also use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.

5.1.1 Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., on www.copytrack.com, app.copytrack.com and portal.copytrack.com for the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimisation of our pages. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland; hereinafter “Google”).

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

• Browser type/version,
• the 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 the website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the internet for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these internet pages. 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 the company. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).

We use Google Analytics only after you have agreed to its use, ; the legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is therefore Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a. GDPR. Please also read our general information on cookies under section 3.

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 related 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 collecting data by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored 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 thus offers a guarantee to comply with the European data protection level (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).

We have concluded a contract with Google regarding the processing of commissioned data and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities for the use of Google Analytics.

5.1.2 Google RE/Marketing Services

We use the marketing and remarketing services (“Google Marketing Services”) of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland, (“Google”) at www.copytrack.com and app.copytrack.com.

The Google marketing services allow us to target ads for and on our site in order to present users only with ads that potentially match their interests. For example, if a user sees ads for products he has been interested in on other websites, this is referred to as “remarketing”. For these purposes, when our and other websites on which Google marketing services are active are accessed, Google directly executes a code from Google and (re)marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as “web beacons”) are integrated 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).

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 on, 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 users is also recorded, whereby we inform within the framework of Google Analytics that the IP address is shortened within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the European Economic Area Agreement and only in exceptional cases completely transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address is not combined with the user’s data within other Google offers. The above information may also be linked by Google to such information from other sources. If the user then visits other websites, ads tailored to his interests can be displayed.

Users’ data is processed pseudonymously within the framework of Google marketing services. This means that Google does not store and process, for example, the names or email addresses of users, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. This means from Google’s point of view, the ads are not managed 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 collected by Google marketing services about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the USA.

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 cannot therefore be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected by 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 expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the AdWords customer’s website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page.

We use Google-Marketing-Services only after you have agreed to their use, the legal basis for the use of Google-Marketing-Services is therefore Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a. GDPR. Please also read our general information on cookies in section 3.

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 deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the “www.googleadservices.com” domain. Google’s privacy policy for conversion tracking can be found here (https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html).

We can also use the “Google Tag Manager” to integrate and manage Google analysis and marketing services into our website.

Further information on Google’s use of data for marketing purposes can be found on the overview page: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads, Google’s data protection declaration can be accessed at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy

If you wish to object to interest-based advertising by Google marketing services, you can use the setting and opt-out options provided by Google: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

5.1.3. Facebook pixels, custom audiences and Facebook conversion

Within our online offer we use on www.copytrack.com and app.copytrack.com 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 to our online offer as a target group for the presentation of ads (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads we post only to Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain features (e.g. interests in certain topics or products that are determined by the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “custom audiences”). We also want to use the Facebook pixel to ensure that our Facebook ads meet the potential interest of users and are not a nuisance. The Facebook pixel also helps us understand the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by showing whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion”).

We only use the Facebook pixels once you have agreed to its use. The legal basis for the use of the Facebook pixel is therefore Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a. GDPR. Please also read our general information on cookies in section 3.

Facebook processes the data in accordance with Facebook’s Data Usage Policy. Accordingly, general information on the display of Facebook ads can be found in the Facebook Data Usage Policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. For specific information and details about the Facebook pixel and how it works, please visit the Facebook Help section: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.

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

You may also object to the use of cookies for range measurement and advertising purposes via the deactivation page of the network advertising initiative (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/) and additionally 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 to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active). Privacy Policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

5.1.4 LinkedIn Conversion Tracking

We use on www.copytrack.com and app.copytrack.com the retargeting tool LinkedIn conversion tracking of the LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland (“LinkedIn”) within our online offer.

This enables LinkedIn to collect statistical, pseudonymous data about your visit and the use of our website and to provide us with corresponding aggregated statistics on this basis. This information is also used to display interest-specific and relevant offers and recommendations. 

We do not use LinkedIn Conversion Tracking until you have agreed to its use, legal basis for the use of the LinkedIn Conversion Tracking is therefore Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a. GDPR. Please also read our general information on cookies in section 3.

The information required for evaluation is stored in a cookie. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your computer through the settings of your internet browser or via this opt-out link: https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out.

5.1.5.   Twitter Pixel

Within our services offered on www.copytrack.com and app.copytrack.com we use conversion tracking with the Twitter pixel, a tool of Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

This enables us to statistically record the use of our website in order to optimize it. Conversion tracking uses Twitter to set a cookie on your device when you visit our site by clicking on a Twitter ad.

Conversion tracking is used to generate statistics and not to identify you. Rather, we only want to know which Twitter ads or interactions users use to reach us on our website. Further information can be found under business.twitter.com/en/help/campaign-measurement-and-analytics/conversion-tracking-for-websites.html.

We use the Twitter pixel only with your explicit consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 a) GDPR. Please also read our general information on cookies in section 3. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser accordingly. In addition, you can configure settings in your personal Twitter account regarding advertising you receive: twitter.com/settings/personalization.

6. Social Networks

6.1 Company pages

COPYTRACK maintains company sites on various social networks and platforms in order to make contact with customers, interested parties and users and for marketing purposes. When accessing the respective networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and the data processing guidelines of their respective operators apply.

We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with active customers, interested parties and users and to inform them about our services.

If user data is processed by the platform operators outside the EU, this can entail risks, e.g. the enforcement of user rights can be made more difficult.  COPYTRACK generally only works with providers that are certified under the privacy shield.  These providers undertake to comply with EU data protection standards.

The user data collected on the platforms is regularly processed for advertising and market research purposes.  Thus, for example, user profiles are created on the basis of user behavior and the resulting interests of the user.  These usage profiles make it possible, for example, to place advertisements tailored to the presumed interests of the user inside and outside the platform.  For this purpose, cookies are stored on the user’s computer, which provide information about the user’s behavior and thus the user’s interests.  In addition, data can also be stored in the user profiles that are independent of the devices used by the users, for example if you are a member of the relevant platforms and are logged in to them.

Pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f.  GDPR, your personal data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interests in effective communication with users or our legitimate interests in user information.  If you are asked by the platform operator for consent to data processing, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR is the legal basis for processing.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, i.e. the consent given by you when sending the documents to COPYTRACK, or Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR, if an employment contract is concluded.

9 Hosting

We use the services of one or more web hosting providers whose servers (or servers managed by them) can access our online services. This is to enable us to provide our online services securely and efficiently. We may use computing capacity, storage space and database services, security and technical maintenance services, and infrastructure and platform services. Accordingly, data processing takes place on the legal basis of a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

The data processed through the provision of the hosting service may include all information which relates to the users of our online service and which arises in relation to usage and communication.  As a rule, this concerns the IP address, which is required in order to be able to transmit the contents of online offers and all entries made within our online offer or from websites to browsers. Furthermore, the receipt, storage and sending of e-mails by the web hosting services used by us is recorded. For this purpose, the contents of the corresponding e-mail, the addresses of the recipients and senders as well as further information in connection with the e-mail transmission (e.g. the associated providers) are processed. The above data may also be processed to enable SPAM to be detected. Please note that e-mails on the internet are generally not encrypted. In principle, they are encrypted during transmission, but not on the servers from which they are received and sent (unless a so-called end-to-end encryption method is used). This means that we cannot assume any responsibility for the transport route of e-mails between the sender and receipt by our server.

Collection of access data and log files: For each access to the server, we ourselves or our web hosting providers collect data. The log data may include the user’s operating system, browser type and version, transferred data volumes, date and time of access, the previously visited website (referrer URL), a notification of successful access, IP addresses and the requesting provider. The purpose of using log data is to ensure the stability and proper utilization of the servers. In addition, security may also be ensured by using log data, for example to avoid server overload in the event of abusive attacks (so-called DDoS attacks).
