a) What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file, which is sent by the respective servers when the service is visited and cached on the hard drive of the respective User. If the respective server is once again contacted, the User’s browser will sent the previously received cookies back to the server. The server can analyze the information received through this procedure in different ways. There are generally two types of cookies. First, there are session cookies which are only stored for a respective visitor session. This means that the cookies will be automatically deleted once the Visitor/User closes the respective service. Second, there are temporary/permanent cookies which are stored on the User’s data carrier for a longer period of time or indefinitely.
If you activate auto login, the respective page of our online offer will also set a cookie, which, in this case, will store your registration data in order to identify you the next time you use the service so that you do not have to login again. The User can deactivate the auto login at any time after activating it.
c) Which data is contained in the cookies?
Through the cookies, information on certain usage behavior, visited pages of the glomex GmbH services etc. is stored. However, no personal data is stored. Therefore, the stored cookies do not make it possible to link usage behavior to a specific or identifiable person. When cookies are used, encoded numbers are assigned to them. Name, IP address, addresses and other personal data, however, are not contained in these cookies and the cookie ID numbers can never be linked to personal data. The information transferred to glomex GmbH is generalized in such a manner that we only obtain information on what sites have been visited, which films have been viewed or which individual pages on the homepage have been clicked on. This information is only transferred and stored under a pseudonym , which cannot be linked to the name. Thus, the storage only serves for an internal assessment of the efficiency of contents on the pages of glomex GmbH and not for the analysis of personal usage behavior of identifiable individual Users.
d) Are third-party cookies or respectively web beacons and user-based online advertising used as well?
The advertisements in this offer are optimized for you, taking into consideration your predicted interests, through the anonymous collection and processing of your usage behavior. To this end, third-parties place cookies on your computer on our behalf, which collect your usage data. This means data that can be collected while you are, for example, visiting the pages of this online offer or clicking on advertisements. Thus, we are able to analyze the use of online advertisements, which might be interesting to you and correspond to your preferences (“usage-based online advertising”). Personal data (such as name, address, email address) will never be stored in this context. If IP addresses are collected, they will be anonymized so that they cannot be linked to any individual user.
If you do no longer wish to obtain user-based online advertisements, you may prevent the placement or respectively storage of cookies through your browser settings.

Our website uses the “Scalable Central Measurement Method” (SCM) of INFOnline GmbH (http://www.infonline.de for the determination of statistical values regarding the usage of our offer.
In this context, anonymous measurement values are collected.

IP addresses are only processed in anonymized form.
The range measurement was developed in compliance with data protection. The object of range measurement is to determine the usage intensity and the number of users of a website.
Individual users will never be identified. Your identity is protected at all times and you will not receive any advertisement through this system.

The Outbrain widget enables Outbrain to suggest additional content to the Users, the topic of which is related to the content viewed by the User. Unless the User has opted out (cf. below), the selection of the content shown in the widget is also based on such content that the User has visited in the current web session and/or recently in the online offer.

We will not link the usage profiles created under a pseudonym with data on the individual behind the pseudonym.

e) What is on-site targeting?
On the web pages of glomex GmbH, data is stored by means of the above mentioned cookies (session cookies and temporary cookies) in order to optimize advertisements. However, in this case as well, the data cannot be linked to the individual person. It is merely collected data for the optimization of the website. The data is used to make it possible to provide advertisement/special offers and services tailored to the respective user. Thus, the offer is even more attractive to the Client and can be used in a better and more user-friendly manner. This is the only way to provide advertisement/services tailored to the interests of the respective Client. Thus, the Client only receives advertisement that he is interested in and not a wide range of general advertisement. Apart from this, the Client may, of course, withdraw his consent to receiving advertisement in general.
f) What is retargeting?
Retargeting works similar to on-site targeting. The essential difference between the two is that re-targeting also involves third-party companies. The service of glomex GmbH also uses so-called retargeting software. Through this technology, advertisement may also be addressed to the User when he is visiting the webpages of the partners of glomex GmbH. Thus, the User can be provided with advertisement in accordance with his interests even beyond the range of services of glomex GmbH. To this end as well, the above mentioned cookies (session cookies and temporary cookies), which readout the previous usage behavior, are used. In this case, too, the data stored or forwarded cannot be linked to an individual User. The partner of glomex GmbH does not receive any personal data of the User either. Advertisement is merely displayed on the pages of the partners as well, without the data (cookies storing the usage behavior) being linked to the personal data of an identifiable individual. The third party is not able to link the usage behavior to the respective individual either.
g) How can the placement of cookies be excluded altogether?
Of course, the User can prevent the placing of cookies altogether, permanently or only temporarily, through the respective browser settings (please click here for more detailed information) If the Client adjusts the browser settings accordingly, he might no longer be able to use all the services and/or functions of our offer completely. Each browser can be set in such a way that cookies are always refused. If the Client wants to refuse the placing of cookies, he may proceed in accordance with these technical notices.
Please note that if you delete the cookies from your browser, the settings in connection with the processing of your information by glomex GmbH or by third parties, respectively, will be deleted as well. Thus, if the User deletes the stored cookies from his browser, he will also have to once again adjust the desired settings regarding the processing of information by glomex GmbH or by third parties, respectively. The deletion of all cookies might also lead to the deletion of opt-out cookies regarding specific data processing settings.
