You can visit our website at any time without having to register or provide any personal information. However, every time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website.

Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. To do this, the user’s IP address must be kept for the duration of the session. The purpose of storing in log files is to ensure the functionality and stability of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. For these purposes lies our legitimate interest in the processing of data according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. In the case of collecting the data for the provision of the website, this is when the respective session is completed.

If you open one of our newsletters or click on a link in it, this may be logged via the web server (date, time, e-mail address).

Your provision of personal information is neither required by law nor by contract. You are not required to provide us with personal information. A failure to provide personal data, if it is mandatory information, means that we cannot send you a newsletter.

Upon receipt of a revocation from you, your e-mail address will be marked with a blocking note in order to document that you no longer wish to be contacted by e-mail in the future.

Website Analytics

Use of Google Analytics

Our site, www.ecoligo.com, uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) in Universal Analytics operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID, thus analyzing the activities of a user across devices. Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, as this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp ()”, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand in member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there 4 in exceptional cases. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. In these purposes, our legitimate interest lies in the data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. F GDPR and, if your consent is given, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user information (eg user IDs) or advertising IDs will be automatically deleted after 14 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached is done automatically once a month.

Interest-based advertising

DoubleClick with DoubleClick AdExchange

Our website uses the online marketing tool DoubleClick by Google (“DoubleClick”). It is also offered by Google. DoubleClick uses cookies to show you advertisements that are relevant to you, to improve your campaign performance reports, or to prevent you from seeing the same ads more than once. Your browser will be assigned a pseudonymous identification number (ID) to check which ads have appeared in your browser and which ads have been viewed. In addition, DoubleClick can use the ID to track conversions related to ad requests. For example, if you see a DoubleClick ad and later use the same browser to visit our website and request something there. Cookies do not contain personally identifiable information, according to Google. As part of DoubleClick Ad Exchange, some data is evaluated across devices. The information generated by the cookies is transmitted by Google for evaluation to a server in the USA and stored there. We have no control over the extent and continued use of the data collected through the use of this tool by Google and therefore inform you to the best of our knowledge: By including DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you access the corresponding part of our website or clicked an ad from us. If you are registered with a service provided by Google, Google may associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a chance that the provider will find and store your IP address. You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of our web pages in full. You can opt out of Google personalized ad using the following link: https://adssettings.google.com/. For more information, please visit: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662856?hl=en.

Facebook Customer Audience

The feature Facebook Custom Audience of the social network Facebook is used on our website, if you have given your consent to Facebook. The Facebook Custom Audience feature allows us to measure, optimize and create audiences for our advertising campaigns. By capturing cross-device actions, we can make advertising campaigns even more efficient. In addition, we can create target group-relevant advertisements. As stated on the website www.facebook.com, this service is offered by Facebook Ireland Limited (4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland). However, we cannot rule out that collected data will also be transmitted to Facebook Inc. (1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA) (collectively “Facebook”). Whether you use a Facebook user account or not is recognizable for Facebook through Facebook Pixel, via which the collected usage data are transmitted to Facebook. Facebook Pixel is a Javascript code that transmits the following data to Facebook: HTTP header information (including IP address, information about the web browser, page location, document, URL of the website and user agent of the web browser and the day and time of use ); Pixel-specific data, including Pixel-ID and Facebook cookie data, including your Facebook ID (this information is used to associate events with a particular Facebook advertising account and associate it with a Facebook user); additional information about visiting our websites, as well as standard and custom data events. The above-mentioned data processing concerns only users who have an account on Facebook or have visited a partner page of Facebook (whereby a cookie has been set). If an assignment of the Facebook ID contained in the Facebook cookie to a Facebook user can be made, Facebook assigns this user to a target group according to the rules we set, provided the rules are relevant. We use this information for the presentation of advertising on Facebook (partner) pages. The display of advertising on Facebook (partner) pages by means of the target group function does not affect users who are not members of Facebook.
