Website analytics with Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our website. This is a service for the analysis of accesses to websites of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter: "Google Analytics") and allows us to improve our web offer. Using cookies, Google Analytics stores and processes the following information:

  • Type of Internet browser used

  • Internet browser version

  • Your operating system

  • Referrer (previously visited website)

  • Your abbreviated IP address

  • Time of the server request

We use the Google Analytics function to render your IP address anonymous before saving or processing. Your IP address usually is abbreviated within the European Union/EEA and only then transmitted to Google servers in the USA. Your information will be processed pseudonymously and we will not combine it with any other of your personal data.

We use the data collected in this way for statistical purposes to optimise our websites and offers. The relevant legal basis is point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. The reports include:

  • Google Display Network Impression Reporting

  • Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting

  • Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data for advertising purposes, including the collection of data via advertising cookies and identifiers

This data is only transferred to Google if you accept optional cookies when your visit to our website begins. Additionally, you have multiple options to prevent data transfer to Google:

  • You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing such data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

  • You can prevent cookies from being saved either directly in your browser settings.

Retargeting advertising

We use multiple third party tools to show you advertising across the internet based on your visit to our site - but only if you agreed to cookies on your visit to our website.

Additionally, you can also manage many companies’ cookies used for online advertising via the consumer choice tools created under self-regulation programs in many countries, such as the US-based https://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU-based http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.

The legal basis for all used retargeting services is Art. 6 (1) a GDPR - your consent on the beginning of the visit of our website.

Google Ads

Our website uses 3rd party vendor re-marketing tracking cookies from Google Ads, an advertising service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter: "Google"). This means we will continue to show ads to you across the internet, specifically on the Google Content Network (GCN). We are not collecting any identifiable information through the use of Google’s or any other 3rd party remarketing system.

For further information on how Google processes your data, please visit their privacy policy at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy. To permanently deactivate re-marketing functionalities in your browser, you can install an addon under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin.

Facebook Pixel

This website uses the so-called "Facebook Pixel" of the social network "Facebook" for the following purposes:

Facebook Custom Audiences

We use the Facebook pixel for remarketing purposes to be able to contact you again within 180 days. This allows us to display interest-based advertisements ("Facebook Ads") to users of the website when they visit the social network "Facebook" or other websites also using this tool. In this way, we pursue the interest in displaying advertisements that are of interest to you in order to make our website or offers more interesting for you. 

Facebook conversions

We also use the Facebook Pixel to ensure that our Facebook Ads match the potential interest of users and are not annoying. With the help of the Facebook Pixel, we can track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion").

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Facebook server as soon as you have agreed to the use of cookies requiring your consent. Through the integration of the Facebook pixel, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our internet presence or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account.

The processing of this data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook's data policy. Special information and details about the Facebook pixel and its functionality can also be found in the Facebook help area.

Data recipient and joint controller

We are jointly responsible with Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”) for the collection and transfer of data in this process. This applies to the following purposes:

  • The creation of individualized or suitable ads, as well as for their optimization

  • Delivery of commercial and transaction-related messages (e.g. via Messenger)

The following processes are therefore not covered by joint controllership:

  • The process that takes place after the collection and transmission is within the sole responsibility of Facebook

  • The preparation of reports and analyses in aggregated and anonymized form is carried out as a Processor and is therefore within our responsibility.

We have concluded a corresponding agreement with Facebook for joint controllership, which can be accessed here: https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum. This agreement defines the respective responsibilities for fulfilling the obligation under the GDPR with regard to joint controllership.

The contact details of the Controller and the data protection officer of Facebook can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

We have agreed with Facebook that Facebook can be used as a contact point for the exercise of data subject rights. Without prejudice to this, the jurisdiction of the Rights of Data Subjects is not limited.

Further information on how Facebook processes personal data, including its legal basis and further information on the rights of data subjects can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy. We transfer the data within the scope of joint controllership based on the legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f GDPR.

Information on the data security conditions can be found here. https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/data_security_terms and on processing on the basis of standard contractual clauses can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/legal/EU_data_transfer_addendum.

The personal data which you provide, e.g. when using a hubspot-based contact form or subscribing to our newsletter, are stored on the servers of our software partner HubSpot. The data processing is governed by a DPA between addcraft and Hubspot.

In the context of the registration process we will obtain your consent to the processing of the data. If you register for our newsletter, you will receive a confirmation email with a link directly after it. The link is used to verify your email address. This process is called “double opt-in” (DOI) and protects both you and us against misuse of your email address and helps to prove that the consent actually comes from the owner of the email address used.

If you provide us with your personal data during the registration, these data are always disclosed on an explicitly voluntary basis. Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR serves as a legal basis for the processing.

Your personal data will exclusively be used for regular dispatch of our newsletters and will not be passed on to any unauthorized third parties. The data will be stored in our marketing automation tool Hubspot for as long as the subscription is active.

You always have the possibility to withdraw your consent to the processing of your data. Every newsletter contains an unsubscribe link. Furthermore you can always send an email to hello@addcraft.io and inform us of your withdrawal. All personal data stored in the course of the newsletter subscription will immediately be deleted in the event of withdrawal of the consent to data processing and simultaneous application for erasure of data.
