Privacy policy for the website of Contentsphere International AG, Hauptstrasse 19, 9042 Speicher (AR), Switzerland.

1. Purpose of this privacy policy

The protection of your personal data (“data”) is extremely important to us. Below, we would therefore like to comprehensively inform you of which data are collected during your visit to our website and the use of our associated offers and how these data are subsequently processed or used by us as well as which accompanying protection measures we have taken from a technical as well as organisational perspective.

2. Responsible body/service provider

The responsible body is Contentsphere International AG, Hauptstrasse 19, 9042 Speicher (AR), Switzerland, cf. more information under the legal notice section. Please forward all questions or comments on this privacy policy or on data protection in general to the following e-mail address: info@contentsphere.com.

3. Collection and processing of personal data

Our website can generally be used without providing personal information. If personal data is collected on our webpages (such as name, address, email addresses), this takes place voluntarily wherever possible. These data are not forwarded on to third parties without your express consent.

Please note that the transmission of data over the internet (e.g. email communication) may contain security gaps. The seamless protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

We expressly object to the use of contact data, published as part of the legal notice requirement, by third parties to transmit advertising and information material that is not expressly requested. The site operators expressly reserve the right to take legal steps in the event of the unsolicited receipt of advertising information, such as spam mail.

4. Right to cancellation

You are entitled to request information on personal data that we have stored about you at any time. The right to data collection and storage may be revoked at any time with effect for the future. In this case, please contact us using our contact address in the legal notice or submit your objection to the following e-mail address: info@contentsphere.com.

5. Cookies

Our website uses “cookies” to enhance the function of our website and make it easier for you to use. Cookies are small text files, which are transmitted from the internet to your computer together with the data/information actually requested. This generally relates to “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted from your hard drive after the end of the browser session. By contrast, “persistent cookies” remain on your computer and make it possible to recognise your computer system during your next visit. You can naturally adjust your browser so that no cookies are stored on the hard drive, or delete stored cookies.

6. Privacy policy for the use of Google Analytics and Google Remarketing

This website uses Google Analytics and Google Remarketing. The services are provided by Google Inc. (“Google”).
You can prevent any recording by Google Analytics and Google Remarketing by clicking on the link below. This installs an “opt-out cookie” in your browser so that your data are not recorded when visiting this website in the future:

Disable Google Analytics

Google Analytics and Google Remarketing are services provided by Google. Google uses “cookies”, text files, that are saved on your computer. This enables an analysis of your use of this website. The cookie generates information about your use of this website (including your IP address) and transmits this to a Google server in the USA where it is also stored. The use of the “_anonymizeIp()” function for your IP address guarantees the shortening of the IP address by the last octet within the European Union or the member states of the European Economic Area, so that the IP address can no longer be clearly assigned. Google complies with the privacy provisions of the “US Safe Harbor” agreement and is registered with the US Department of Commerce’s “Safe Harbor” programme.

The information is used by Google in order to analyse your use of the website. Reports on the website activities are prepared for the website operator and additional services in connection with the use of the website and the internet are enabled. Google may transmit this information to third parties, if required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

Advertisements are displayed on websites on the internet by third-party providers and Google. Google and third-party providers use the data in order to display advertising on third-party websites.

Your IP address will not be linked to other data by Google. Data collection and storage may be revoked at any time with effect for the future. You can disable the use and storage of cookies by Google by performing a corresponding setting on your browser software, by accessing the

www.google.de/privacy/ads site and clicking the “Opt-Out” button.

Alternatively, you can disable the use of cookies by third party providers by accessing the network advertising initiative’s deactivation page under

www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

You can find additional information on Google’s terms under

www.google.com/intl/de/privacy.

If you object to the use of cookies, please be aware that you may not be able to make full use of all the functions on this website. By accessing this website you consent to the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the manner described above and for the purposes previously mentioned.

7. Privacy policy for the use of Facebook and Facebook Retargeting functions
Our website uses plugins provided by Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. You can recognise these plugins by Facebook’s blue “F” or by the plugin’s identification with the word “Facebook”. When accessing our website, this plugin establishes a connection to the Facebook servers and data are transmitted. The information that you can see is transferred directly from the servers to your browser, where it is displayed, while information on your visit to our website is also transmitted to Facebook. If you are logged in to Facebook, the transmitted information may be assigned directly to your account. Facebook is responsible for the further processing of this information; the relevant terms and conditions and setting options can be found in the Facebook privacy policy. If you would like to prevent personal data from being transmitted to Facebook, log out of Facebook before visiting our website.

Placement of interest-based advertising using “Retargeting”

This website uses so-called “Retargeting Tags”. A “Retargeting Tag” is a JavaScript element that is placed in the website’s source code. If a user visits a page on this website, which contains a “Retargeting Tag”, a provider of online advertising (e.g. Google) places a cookie on this user’s computer and assigns corresponding retargeting target group lists to this cookie. This cookie is then used to place retargeting campaigns (“interest-based advertising”) on other websites. Studies have shown that the display of interest-based advertising is more interesting for internet users than advertising that has no direct reference to interests or previously visited websites. Notes on setting and disabling options can be found under the privacy policy for the use of Google Analytics and Google Remarketing.

8. Privacy policy for the use of WiredMinds

This website uses WiredMinds services to collect and process data in anonymised form in order to continuously optimise and analyse our website. Pseudonyms are generated when creating anonymised user profiles. In some circumstances, this includes the use of cookies, which also collect and save pseudonymised data. The data are never used to personally identify a user (if this were even technically possible) and are never combined with the data on the bearer of a pseudonym.
