Remarketing with Google AdWords

We work with Google Remarketing AdWords to show ads on third-party websites to visitors to our websites.

Remarketing via Facebook

We integrate a so-called Custom Audience Pixel (“pixel”), which is placed on our websites by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). This pixel collects data about how people use our websites (e.g. which pages you visited) and sends them to Facebook in hashed form.

Purpose: This data is used for statistical and market research purposes. This allows us to measure the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns on Facebook pages (conversion tracking) and to focus our advertising on groups created by Facebook. We can also show you advertisements in your Facebook feed that you might find interesting based on the websites you visit. If you use our website after visiting Facebook, we can only identify you and associate this information with your customer account if you submit an order, for example.

Legal basis: Consent, legitimate interests (Art. 6 GDPR)

 

Google Analytics

Our website uses functions from the Google Analytics web analytics service. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics records website users’ interactions.

For more information on how Google uses data for advertising purposes, settings and how to opt out, see the following pages on Google’s website: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners (“How Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services”), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“Use of data for advertising purposes”), http://www.google.com/settings/ads (“Control the information Google uses to show you ads”) and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences (“Choose which ads Google shows you”).

 

Are you required to give us your data?

In general, you are free to choose whether to share your personal data with us. However, certain information is required for proper processing by SKIDATA (e.g. for application management or to send out our newsletter). These required fields are marked as such. If you do not provide your data, we may be unable to send you our newsletter or process your application.

 

Who has access to your data?

In general, your data is only shared with those departments and employees who need to process it for the specific purpose indicated. In cases where data processors working for us (IT service providers, hosting companies, marketing agencies, etc.) have access to your data, we have established a data processing agreement with them that provides sufficient guarantees that the data processor will also handle your data confidentially and in compliance with the law.

 

How long do we keep your data?

If no explicit period is specified when we collect the data (e.g. when you give your consent), your personal data is deleted when it is no longer needed for record-keeping purposes, unless it cannot be deleted due to statutory retention requirements or professional duties of care to retain the data for the enforcement, exercise or defense of legal claims.

Any data that is not deleted is anonymized. This means that all personally-identifiable references are irreversibly deleted, thereby making data privacy regulations inapplicable.

 

What rights do you have?

You can

  • get information about your personal data that has been processed by SKIDATA;
  • demand that incorrect personal data be corrected;
  • demand that the personal data processed by SKIDATA be deleted, provided that the processing of your data by SKIDATA is based exclusively on your consent;
  • demand restrictions on the processing of personal data in certain cases;
  • demand the transfer of your personal data; or
  • opt out of the processing of your personal data by SKIDATA.
  • If you give your consent, you have the right to revoke it at any time, and the right to information about your data stored with us and to correction or deletion of such data.
