Cookies Policy Statement of HY2GO Limited
As soon as you begin using the Website, our system automatically collects information from the system of the requesting machine. Data collected can include the following:
1. Essential Cookie Details
We use two types of cookies. The first type are cookies which are technically necessarily and without which the functionality of our website would be limited. The second type are optional cookies, which are used to make our website more user-friendly. The user data collected via the essential cookies is not used to create user profiles, while the analysis (optional) cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its contents. Through the setting of analysis cookies, we learn how the website is used and how we can optimize it.
2. Performance and functionality
This website is marketed by HY2GO Limited. As part of this process, advertising is optimized for you through the collection and processing of information about your usage behavior, and is aligned to your predicted interests. As a result, you, as a user and data subject, benefit by receiving advertising that is more in line with your interests. A cookie is stored on your computer to record your usage behavior, but does not enable you to be personally identified.
3. Analytics and customization
In order to improve our content on an ongoing basis, to adapt it to the interests of our users and to display usage-based online advertising, we use a number of services that collect and evaluate data on our website or in our app. Insofar as these service providers do not themselves constitute data controllers within the meaning of data protection law, they always process the pseudonymised user data according to the provisions of a contract data processing agreement. You can disable these individual analysis services at any time with effect for the future. The following paragraphs contain more information about the analysis services we use.
We have integrated functions of Google Analytics (including IP anonymization) into our Online Services. Google Analytics is a web analytics service and is designed to collect, compile and analyze data about the behavior of website visitors. Among other things, a web analytics service collects information about the referrer URL, the pages of the website that were accessed, and how often and for what length of time a page was viewed. Web analytics data is used primarily to optimize websites and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operator of Google Analytics is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. We use the anonymization function “ga (‘set’, ‘anonymizelp’, true)”, which prompts to Google to truncate and anonymize the user’s IP address if the access request comes from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting Party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of Google Analytics is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate visitors’ use of our website, to com-pile reports for us about activity on our web pages and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the data subject’s computer system (for the definition of a cookie, please see above). Google can use the cookie-generated information to analyze your use of our website. Each time you visit any of the pages of our website into which a Google Analytics component has been incorporated, the internet browser on your computer system is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to submit the data to Google for online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google will become aware of personal data such as your IP address. This serves, among other things, to enable Google to track the origin of visitors and clicks and thus to reach subsequent commission settlements.
The cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as access time, the location from which the access was requested and the frequency of site visits by the data subject. Each time you, as the data subject, visit our website, your personal information – including the IP address of your internet connection – is transferred to Google in the United States of America and stored there. Google may transfer the personal data collected via this technical process to third parties.
As described above, data subjects can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by adjusting the settings of their internet browser and thus objecting permanently to the setting of cookies. Adjusting the browser settings in this way will also prevent Google from set-ting a cookie on the computer system. In addition, cookies already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.
Other information and Google’s own data privacy guidelines can be found at https://privacy.google.com/intl/en-GB/index.html and https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. More details about Google Analytics can be found here: https://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/analytics/#?modal_active=none.
Ads are usually provided by third parties. These third parties may, to the extent permitted by your device settings, use information about your website visits to display ads about products and services that may interest you. Specific contact data such as your name, address, email address and telephone number will not be transmitted under any circumstances.
You can prevent the setting of cookies at any time by adjusting the settings in your internet browser to object permanently to the setting of cookies. In addition, previously set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software program. This can be accomplished in all standard internet browsers. Deactivating the setting of cookies in your internet browser may mean that not all features of our website are fully usable.
When you use apps instead of a browser, a comparable technology is used in place of cookies. In the course of this, we possibly use an advertising ID, which the manufacturer of your operating system provides for such purposes. “Identifier for Advertizing” (IDFA) for iOS devices or “Google Advertizing ID” for Android devices. The advertising ID is not related to the app, but connected with your terminal device as such. With the assistance of this advertising ID, Media Impact can deliver advertising contents matching your usage of the app (so-called “behavior-oriented advertising”). The purpose of this is to display more interesting and relevant advertising to you than it would be possible without the usage of the respective data. If the advertising ID of your terminal device shall not be used for behavior-oriented advertising, you can set up your device accordingly: If you use a terminal device from the manufacturer Apple: Open the settings and choose the option “privacy”. Under “advertising”, you can now activate the feature “no ad-tracking”. If you use a terminal device with the operating system Android: Open the the app “Google settings” and choose the option “ads”. There you can “Opt out of Ads Personalization”.
We have integrated components of DoubleClick by Google into this website. DoubleClick is a Google brand under which special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers.
The operator of DoubleClick by Google is is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
DoubleClick by Google transmits data to the DoubleClick server with every impression, click, or other activity. Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to the data subject’s browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie on the data subject’s computer system (for the definition of a cookie, please see above). The purpose of the cookie is to optimize and display advertising. The cookie is used, among other things, to serve and display user-relevant advertisements as well as to generate reports on or optimize advertising campaigns. The cookie is used to avoid multiple impressions of the same advertising message.
DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is necessary for the execution of the technical process. It is required, for example, to display an ad in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to see which ads have already appeared in a browser and thus to avoid avoid duplication. The cookie ID further enables DoubleClick to track conversions. A “conversion” is recorded when, for example, a user has previously been shown a DoubleClick ad and then makes a purchase on the advertiser’s site using the same internet browser.
A DoubleClick cookie does not contain any personally identifiable information. However, a DoubleClick cookie may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier identifies the campaigns with which the user has already come into contact.
Each time you visit any of the pages of this website that are operated by us and into which a DoubleClick component has been integrated, the Internet browser on your computer system will be automatically prompted, by the respective DoubleClick component, to transmit the data to Google for the purpose of online advertising and calculating commission settlements. As part of this technical process, Google will gain knowledge of the data it uses to draw up commission settlements. Google learns, among other things, that you, as the data subject, have clicked on certain links on our website.
As already described above, you can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by adjusting the corresponding settings on your internet browser and thus objecting permanently to the setting of cookies. Adjusting the settings in this way will also prevent Google from set-ting a cookie on the computer system. In addition, cookies already set by Google can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software program.
Further information and the respective data privacy guidelines of DoubleClick by Google can be viewed at https://policies.google.com/?hl=en.
5. Social networking
You can find us on the social networks of third party companies, such as Facebook or Twitter. We have also integrated certain functions of these networks into our Online Services; you can only use these if you are registered and logged in to the respective social network at the time. Please note that use of the social network is governed by the usage and privacy conditions of the respective third party company and that we have no influence over these. However, we are happy to provide some information about how such networks process your personal data in this regard.
We have chosen to integrate certain YouTube components into this website. YouTube is a free internet video portal that allows video publishers to upload videos and other users to view, rate and comment on them. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos. As such, it offers complete film and television broadcasts as well as music videos, trailers and user-made vide-os.
The operator of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Each time you visit any of the page of this website and into which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the internet browser on your computer system will be automatically prompted, by the respective YouTube component, to download a representation of that component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/intl/en-GB/yt/about/. As a result of this technical process, YouTube and Google gain knowledge of the specific pages of our site that you visit.
If you, as the data subject, are logged in to YouTube at the same time as accessing a page containing a YouTube component, YouTube can identify which specific page of the website you are visiting. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to your individual YouTube account.
On smartphones and tablets, the aforementioned services are typically not implemented through the use of plug-ins, but by a “sharing” function that is internal to the device. Depending on the device settings, information can also be transferred to other social media service providers. Please refer to your device information.
