IV. Usage analysis and tracking
We would like to further improve the usability of this website and the appeal of our services. For this reason, we also collect data on usage behavior that we evaluate for this purpose when you visit our website. For this reason, the following tracking and analysis cookies are used on our website in addition to the technically required cookies described below.
1. Google (Universal) Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google. Using a cookie, Google collects information about your use of this website (including your IP address) in the USA and stores this information. We use Google Analytics exclusively using an anonymization feature. This means that, before transmitting it, Google will shorten the IP address of users within member states of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in rare cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Analyzing the information collected, Google sends us reports on usage activities on our website while providing us with additional services for this purpose. The IP address transmitted by your browser via Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
In addition to blocking all cookies, you can prevent Google from processing your data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under this link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
As an alternative to the browser plugin or within browsers on mobile devices, please click on the following link to set an opt-out cookie that will prevent future collection by Google Analytics within this website (this opt-out cookie only works in this browser and only for this domain; if you delete your cookies in this browser, you must click this link again): Disable Google Analytics.
2. Google AdWords
Our website uses Google's AdWords advertising tool including its conversion and remarketing function.
The remarketing tool allows us to display targeted advertising on other websites you visit. For this purpose, Google analyses your use of our website and stores a corresponding ID in your browser. This ID allows us to assign you to a specific user group and to recognize you when you visit websites that are part of Google's advertising network. These websites can then display advertisements related to your use of our website. During this process, Google does not collect any personal data; you are assigned to a specific user group exclusively through your browser. The collected data is stored and processed in the USA.
We use conversion tracking to determine how successful advertising for our services is on other websites.To do this, a conversion cookie is set when you click on one of our ads. We use this cookie to recognize that you came to our site through this ad. With such usage statistics, we create statistics to evaluate the conversion of our ads. We do not obtain any personal information. The conversion cookie that is set in your browser is unique and cannot be used by other Google AdWords customers for their statistics.
You can prevent this remarketing by deactivating the function under
JobLeads also uses Google's Doubleclick service. As part of this service, a cookie is set and a pseudonymous identification number (ID) is assigned to your browser. The cookie determines whether and which advertisements were displayed and clicked in your browser. This enables us to tailor your advertising even closer to your interests. Since we have activated Google's IP anonymization on this website, your IP address is also shortened within the scope of Doubleclick before being transmitted by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to Google in the USA and only shortened there. Analyzing the information it collects, Google sends us reports on usage activities on our website while providing us with additional services for this purpose. The IP address transmitted by your browser via Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
In addition to the above-mentioned general options for preventing cookies, you can also prevent Google from saving the Doubleclick cookie by downloading a browser plugin. This can be found here.
4. Facebook-Custom Audience
We use Facebook pixels on our websites. This pertains to the function of a web analysis service provided by Facebook. Facebook pixels are invisible graphic files built into our website. When you visit our website, information from the pixel is stored in your browser. This enables us to track which of our subpages you have visited. We share this information with Facebook to better match our ads there to your real interests and to analyze the effectiveness of our ads on Facebook. Depending on your use of our website, Facebook assigns you to certain groups of interested parties known as custom audiences. The information generated by the cookie is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
