We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
In individual cases it is permitted for our partner companies to collect, process or use data from our website in the form described above by means of cookies. This applies in particular to the web analytics or social media services named below.
In addition, data will be collected on the basis of cookie technology in order to optimize advertising and the entire range of our online services. This data too will not be used in order to identify you personally but will only serve to produce an anonymous evaluation of the use of the services.
At no time will your data be put together with the personal data stored with us.
We use the services of a few partners who help us to design the service and our website in a way which is interesting for you. Therefore, when you visit our website, cookies from partner companies will also be stored on your hard disk. These are temporary/permanent cookies, which are automatically deleted after the pre-set time (see above). The cookies of our partner companies do not contain any personal data either. Only pseudonymous data under a user ID is collected.
You can choose a setting in your browser, which allows the storage of cookies conditional upon your consent. If you only want to accept our cookies but not the cookies from our service providers and partners, you can select the setting “Block third-party cookies” in your browser. Generally there will be a display via the Help function in the menu list of your web browser telling you how to reject new cookies and disable ones already received. With shared-use computers, which are set to accept cookies and flash cookies, we recommend that you always sign out completely after the end of a session.
Each time you access the pages of our website, usage data is transmitted by the relevant internet browser and stored in server log files. The datasets stored in this case contain the following data: date and time of retrieval, name of the page accessed, IP address, referrer URL (the source URL from which you accessed our website), the volume of data transmitted plus product and version information for the browser used. The user’s IP addresses are deleted or anonymized after the end of use. Anonymizing means that the IP addresses are altered in such a way that the particular details about personal or factual circumstances cannot be assigned to a specific or identifiable person, or only at disproportionately high expense in terms of time, costs and manpower. We evaluate the log file datasets in anonymized form in order to improve our range of services on our website even further and make it more user-friendly, to locate and eliminate errors more quickly and to control server capacities.
In order to constantly improve and optimize our range of services, we use so-called tracking technologies, precisely the services of Google Analytics and Facebook’s re-targeting technology “Custom Audience”:
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics to improve and help us analyze our services. Google Analytics is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “Cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the ARTITIOUS website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website are usually transferred to a server of Google in the US and stored there. In case of activation of IP anonymization on this website your IP address from Google will be truncated within Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this site Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the ARTITIOUS website, compiling reports on website activity, which will aid in the continued development of the website. Google Analytics will not merge your IP address with other Google data.
Google Analytics uses “cookies”, i.e. text files, which are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of the use of our range of services by Google. As a rule, the information gathered by the cookie about the use of our website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We would point out that on the web page ‘Google Analytics’ has been expanded by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” in order to ensure an anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). At our instigation, Google therefore only collects your IP address in abbreviated form, which guarantees anonymity and does not allow any conclusions as to your identity. In the case of the activation of IP anonymity on this web page, your IP address will first be abbreviated by Google within the member states of the European Union (EU) or in other states which are contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there.
Google will use the said information in order to evaluate your usage of our website, to compile reports on website activities for us and to provide us with other services associated with the use of web pages and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be put together with other Google data. A transmission of these data by Google to third parties only occurs on the basis of legal stipulations or when processing order data. In no case will Google put your data together with other data collected by Google. In your use of this website you declare that you agree with the processing of data collected about you by Google and the ways and means in which the data is processed described above as well as with the purpose stated.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by making a corresponding setting in your browser software; we would however point out that sometimes this might prevent you from using the functions of this website to their full extent.

Our website uses Facebook’s re-targeting technology Website Custom Audience operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94394, USA („Facebook“). This tool permits our online visitors who are Facebook members, to view relevant advertisement and offers for our services on the Facebook website.
For this purpose our website contains Facebook re-targeting pixels, which permit Facebook to identify a member as a visitor of our website on the basis of pseudonymous date and use such information in order to display our advertisement or offers in the Facebook Ads network.
This does not involve the collection of personally identifiably information and does therefore not enable us to identify you on Facebook. The pseudonymous data collected through the re-targeting pixels will not be connected with your Facebook user data.
