- 2. Use of your data for advertising purposes (Retargeting)
We use retargeting technologies on this website. These technologies analyse your user behaviour on our website in order to subsequently offer you advertising that is tailored specifically to you on partner websites. Your user behaviour is collected in a pseudonymised form.
Most retargeting technologies work with cookies (see Section 6 below).
This website uses Google AdWords Remarketing and Doubleclick by Google, services offered by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043,USA ("Google"), in order to place advertisements based on the use of websites visited previously. To do so, Google uses the DoubleClick cookie, which allows your browser to be recognised when visiting other websites. The information collected by the cookie about visits to these websites (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there (more information about the transfer of personal data to the United States can be found further below under Section 10).
Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website with respect to the advertisements placed, in order to compile reports about website activity and advertisements for the website operator and to provide further services that are linked to usage of the website and the Internet in general. Google will also transfer this information to third parties in certain cases, where this is required by law or if the said third parties process this data on Google's behalf. Google will under no circumstances associate your IP address with other data from Google, however.
In order to manage usage-based advertising services, we also use Google Tag Manager. The Tag Manager tool itself is a cookieless domain and does not collect any personal data. Instead, the tool ensures the activation of other tags that may for their part collect certain data (for more details, see above). If you have opted for deactivation this at a domain or cookie level, this deactivation will continue to apply for all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager.
You may choose to prevent retargeting at any time by rejecting or disabling the relevant cookies in the menu bar of your web browser (see Section 6 below).
- 3. Transfer of data to third parties
We pass your personal data on only if you have expressly consented to this, if there is a legal obligation to do so or if this is required in order to enforce our rights, in particular in order to enforce claims resulting from the relationship between you and Ambassador & Opera AG.
We also pass your data on to third parties where this is required in conjunction with use of the website in order to provide you with the services requested or to analyse your user behaviour. If this is required for the purposes specified in the preceding sentence, your data may also be passed on to third parties abroad. If the website contains links to websites of third parties, Ambassador & Opera AG will no longer have any influence on the collection, processing, storage or use of personal data by third parties once you click on such links and assumes no responsibility in this regard.
- 4. Transfer of personal data abroad
- 5. Data security
We take appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect any of your personal data that we have stored from manipulation, partial or complete loss and unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are constantly being improved in line with technological developments.
You should always treat your payment information as confidential and close the browser window once you have ended your communication with us, particularly if you are on a shared computer.
We also take data privacy within our organisation very seriously. Our employees and the service providers commissioned by us are obliged to maintain confidentiality and comply with our data protection provisions.
- 6. Cookies
Disabling cookies may prevent you from being able to use all of the features on our website.
- 7. Tracking tools
On our website we use various tracking tools. These tracking tools are used to monitor your surfing behaviour on our website. This is for the purposes of needs-based design and continuous optimisation of our website. In connection with this, pseudonymised usage profiles are created and small text files that are saved on your computer (“cookies”) are used.
- 8. Social media plugins
The social plugins described below are used on our website. The plugins are disabled on our website as standard and therefore do not send any data. By clicking on the corresponding social media button, you can enable the plugins (known as the Shariff solution).
If these plugins are enabled, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers for the relevant social networks as soon as you call up one of our websites. The content of the plugins is transferred from the social network to your browser directly and integrated by your browser into the website. The plugins can of course be disabled again with just a click of the mouse. Further information about the social media plugins can be found on the data privacy statement from Facebook, Instagram and Youtube.
- 9. Analysis of newsletter use
To send our newsletter, we use e-mail marketing services of MailChimp. Our newsletter may therefore contain a web beacon (tracking pixel) or similar technical tools. A web beacon is an invisible graphic image, 1x1 pixel in size, that is associated with the user ID for the relevant newsletter subscriber.
The use of these services allows us to analyse whether or not the e-mails containing our newsletter have been opened. In addition, the click behaviour of recipients of our newsletter can also be collected and analysed. We use this data for statistical purposes and in order to optimise the newsletter with regard to content and structure. This allows us to better align the information and offers in our newsletter to the individual interests of the recipient in question. The tracking pixel is deleted if you delete the newsletter.
If you wish to prevent tracking pixels from being included in our newsletter, please set your e-mail software such that HTML is not displayed in messages.
You can find further information about the analysis of newsletter use here: MailChimp
- 10. Right to information, correction, erasure and restriction of processing; Right to data portability
You have the right to receive information about the personal data that we store about you free of charge upon request. In addition, you have the right to correct inaccurate data and the right to delete your personal data, as far as there is no statutory storage obligation or another legal basis for the processing in the sense of art. 6 GDPR that allows us to continue processing the data. You also have the right to reclaim from us the data you have given us (right to data portability). On request, we also pass the data on to a third party of your choice. You have the right to receive the data in a common file format. You can reach us for the aforementioned purposes via the e-mail address email@example.com. We may, at our sole discretion, require proof of identity to process your requests.
- 11. Data storage
We only store personal information for as long as it is necessary
- to use the above tracking advertising and analysis services within the scope of our legitimate interest
- to carry out services that you requested or to which you have given your consent (for example, to newsletter pursuant to Section 9)to the extent specified above.
- to comply with legal obligations
Contract data is kept longer by us, as this is required by statutory storage requirements. Retention requirements that oblige us to keep data arise from accounting and tax regulations. According to these regulations, business communications, closed contracts and accounting documents must be kept for up to 10 years. As far as we no longer need this data to carry out the services for you, the data will be blocked. This means that the data may then only be used for accounting and for tax purposes.

You have the right to file a complaint to a data protection supervisory authority at any time.
