Website cookies and beacons:
• Details of your visits to our Applications, such as the date and time you access our Applications, length of time you spend on our Applications, websites you visited before or after our Applications, the resources and content that you access and use on the Applications.
• Information about your computer and internet connection, such as your IP Address, computer type, screen resolution, language, Internet browser type and version.
The information generated by the cookies about your use of our website, including your IP address, will be anonymized by use of the appropriate settings (“_anonymiselp()” function or equivalent) and transmitted to Google servers in the United States. For more information on how IP anonymization works please see:
At any time, you have the right to raise an objection to the processing of your data for the purpose of such advertising. For this purpose, we will provide you at the head of this website with the opt out options of the respective services. Alternatively, you can prevent the setting of cookies in your browser settings:
Google Chrome: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95647
Internet Explorer: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/278835/how-to-delete-cookie-files-in-internet-explorer
Mozilla Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enable-and-disable-cookies-website-preferences
For more information about cookies and how to disable them, see www.allaboutcookies.org.
In order to increase awareness of our services, we use Google AdWords adverts and use conversion tracking and the Google Tag Manager within the framework of this, for the purpose of personalised online advertising which is tailored to interests and location. The option of anonymising the IP address is by an internal setting in Google Tag Manager, which cannot be viewed in the source of this website.
Should you not wish this to take place, you can prevent the saving of the cookie which is necessary for this technology, for example via your browser settings. In such a case, your visit is not recorded under the user statistics. You also have the option of selecting the types of Google adverts and de-activating interest-based adverts on Google via the advertising settings.
Facebook Remarketing & Custom Audiences
Using the previously mentioned web beacons (FB Pixel), we tailor advertisements to you on the Facebook platform using the cookie data obtained from the use of our Service.
Custom Audience Pixel, a service of Facebook Inc., (1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA), is a small piece of Java script code which we have integrated into all of our websites. This piece of code provides a number of functions for the sending of application specific events and user defined data to Facebook. We use Custom Audience pixels in order to record information concerning the way in which visitors use our website. This pixel records and provides Facebook with information concerning the browser setting of the user, a hashed version of the Facebook ID and the URL which is being visited. Each Facebook user thus possesses a clear and device-independent Facebook ID, whereby it is possible to address the user via more than one device on the social network Facebook and to recognise him or her, so that we can target our visitors again for advertising purposes by means of Facebook adverts. After 90 days, the user information is deleted until the visitor accesses our website again. Therefore, no personal information is disclosed to Tech Circus in relation to the individual website visitors and we can only solicit website customer target groups once the target customer group has reached a critical mass in terms of numbers. Further information concerning Facebook and its private sphere settings above and beyond the details set out can be found in the Data Policy and the Terms of Service of Facebook Inc.
