#15: What third-party cookies do we use on our website?
The website uses the following third-party cookies:
Google Analytics - additional information
We use the Google Analytics tool provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. We carry out these activities to create statistics and analyze them to optimize the website.
A unique Google Analytics tracking code has been implemented in the website code to use Google Analytics. The tracking code uses Google LLC cookies for the Google Analytics service. You can block the Google Analytics tracking code anytime by installing a browser add-on provided by Google.
Google Analytics automatically collects data about your use of the website. The data collected this way is most often transferred to Google servers, which may be located worldwide, and stored there.
Due to activated IP anonymization, your IP address is shortened before forwarding. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transmitted to Google servers and shortened there. The anonymized IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is generally not combined with other Google data.
Within Google Analytics we have access only to Anonymous Information.
Google Analytics and Google Analytics 360 services have been certified by the independent security standard ISO 27001. ISO 27001 is one of the most widely recognized standards in the world and warrants that the systems supporting Google Analytics and Google Analytics 360 meet the relevant requirements.
Hotjar - additional information
We use the Hotjar tool to understand your needs better and optimize the website in terms of your experience. The plug-in is provided by an external entity, i.e., Hotjar Limited, Level 2, St Julian's Business Centre, 3, Elia Zammit Street, St Julian's STJ 1000, Malta.
Hotjar records each website visitor, makes a video recording of their movement on the site and generates the so-called heat maps. Within Hotjar use, we don't have access to information that allows us to identify our web visitors because Hotjar does not record the process of completing forms. Within Hotjar, we have access to the following data:
information about the operating system and web browser that you use,
pages you browse within the website,
time spent on the website and its particular pages,
transitions between individual pages within the website,
the source from which you go to the website,
places within the website that you click,
Facebook Custom Audiences - additional information
As part of the Facebook Ads advertising system provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, we use the Custom Audiences function to target specific groups of users with targeted advertising messages. Facebook Pixel has been implemented as part of the website to target you with ads personalized regarding your web-behavior. It automatically collects data about your use of the website. The data collected in this way is most often transferred to Facebook servers, which may be located worldwide, particularly in the US.
The information collected as part of Facebook Pixel is anonymous, i.e., it does not allow us to identify you. Depending on your activity on the website, you can reach a specific group of recipients, but we do not identify individuals belonging to these groups in any way.
The Facebook Pixel can track and record (among others) your following behaviors:
Google Ads - additional information
We use the remarketing functions available as part of the Google AdWords system operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. We carry out these activities for the marketing of our products or services.
When visiting our website, a Google remarketing cookie file is automatically left on your device, which collects information about your web activity. Thanks to the data collected in this way, we can display ads targeting you within the Google network - depending on your behavior on the website. For example, suppose you're seeing a particular product. In that case, the remarketing cookie file will record information about this fact, allowing us to direct you to an ad regarding this product or any other that we consider appropriate. This ad will be displayed to you within the Google network when you're online, browsing different websites, etc.
When using Google Ads, we use only Anonymous Information.
Using Google AdWords, we can only define the groups of recipients we would like our ads to reach. On this basis, Google decides when and how to present the ad to you.
Further information processing takes place only if you have consented to Google linking your browsing history with your account and using data from your Google account to personalize website ads. In this situation, Google will use your data to create and define lists of target groups for remarketing purposes on various devices. For this purpose, Google temporarily combines the data collected with other data to create target groups.
If you don't want to receive personalized ads, you can manage your ad settings directly on the Google website: https://adssettings.google.com/
Facebook Connect and other social plugins - additional information
Our website uses plugins, buttons, and other social tools, hereinafter jointly referred to as "plugins," provided by social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, and Twitter.
By displaying a website containing a plugin of a given social network, your browser sends information about the visit to the administrator of this social network. Since the plugin is a part of the social network embedded in the website, the browser sends information about the request to download the content of the given social network to the website.
The plugins collect certain information about you, such as your user ID, the website you visit, date and time, and other information about your web browser.
Social network administrators use some of this information to personalize the viewing experience of our site.
Social network administrators may also use the data collected by plugins, such as improving their products, creating user profiles, analyzing and optimizing their activities, and targeting advertisements.
Social network plugins collect and transmit information to the administrators of these websites even when you browse our website without being logged in to your social network account. Then, however, the browser sends a more limited set of information.
If you have logged in to one of the social media platforms, the site administrator can directly assign a visit to our website to your profile on a given social networking site.
Suppose you want to avoid social networking platforms assigning data collected during visits to our website directly to your profile on a given website. In that case, you must log out of this platform before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the loading of plugins on the website by using the appropriate extensions for your browser, e.g., blocking scripts.
In addition, using some plugins may involve publishing certain information as part of your social profiles. For example, information about clicks on the "Like" button may be available on your Facebook timeline. Of course, if you share any content on your social media using plugins embedded on our website, this sharing will naturally be visible in your profile.
As for the details related to the processing of information collected by plugins by administrators of social media platforms, you can find everything in the privacy policies of individual service providers:
