6 Pixels, Local Storage and similar Technologies

Within our website we apply the “Pixel Tool” of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”), to be able to measure the effectiveness of online marketing measures. Tracking pixels (which are also referred to as Clear GIFs, Web Beacons or Pixel Tags) are small code units which are installed in or on a website, mobile app or advertisement. These tracking pixels can enquire certain information about your browser and your device, such as for example, operating system, browser type, device type and version, linking website, visited website, IP address and other similar information. With its help we can track your actions after you have seen a Facebook advertisement and/or have clicked on it and then placed an order. This way we can record the effectiveness of the Facebook advertisements for statistic and market research purposes. The thus recorded data are anonymous for us, that means that we can neither see any of your personal data nor amalgamate these with other information about you. 

However, this data are stored and processed by Facebook. Facebook can therefore comprehend the behaviour of those who have clicked on an advertisement in the member section of Facebook and were transferred to our website. Through the use of cookies, that is text files which are stored on your computer, Facebook can then identify you in the member section of Facebook and optimize the efficiency of advertisements, e.g. offer advertisements directed at target groups corresponding to the Facebook data use directive. This only concerns you when you have an account with Facebook and are logged into the member section of Facebook. If you are not a Facebook member, you are not affected by this data processing.

Our newsletter contains a tracking pixel. With a web beacon it is a non-visible graphic with a size of 1x1 pixel, which is in connection with the user ID of the respective newsletter subscriber. For each sent newsletter there is information about the used address file, the reference and the number of sent newsletters. In addition to this, it can be seen which addresses have not yet received the newsletter, to which addresses it was sent and for which addresses the dispatch failed. In addition, there is also the opening rate incl. the information which addresses opened the newsletter. And lastly the information, which addresses signed out. We use this data for statistical purposes and to optimize the newsletters with regard to contents and structure. This allows us to better orient the information and offers in our newsletter to the individual interest of the recipients. The tracking pixel is deleted when you delete the newsletter. To prohibit the use of the web beacon in our newsletter, please set your mail program, if this is not yet the case as standard, so that HTML is not displayed in the news. 

7 Web-Analysis-Tools

7.1 Google Analytics
On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer) we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). Google uses cookies. 

The information about your use of this website (including your IP address) generated by the cookie is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and because of this, provides a guarantee of complying with the European data protection law. (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

Google uses this information for our order to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports about the website activities and to provide further services for us linked with the website use and Internet use. The IP address transmitted from your browser within the scope of Google Analytics, is not combined with further data from Google.    

We use Google Analytics only with activated IP anonymisation. This means that the IP address of the users is abbreviated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in cases of exception will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and then abbreviated there.

You can prevent the acquisition and transmission of the data created by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). An Opt-Out cookie is set, which prevents the future acquisition of your data when visiting this website. However, we would like to point out to you, that you may not be able to use all functions of this website in full in this case.    

You can find more information about the terms of use and data protection at www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, resp. at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/. We advise you, that on this website, Google Analytics has been expanded by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();"  to guarantee an anonymised acquisition of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

7.2 Google-Re/Marketing-Services 
On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer) we use the marketing and re-marketing services (in short “Google-Marketing-Services”) of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, Google AdWords and Google Double Click and Google Tag Manager. 

7.3 Google AdWords
On the basis of our legitimate interests we use the advertising program «Google AdWords» which belongs to Google-Marketing-Services Online. 
Thereby, Google AdWords sets a cookie on your computer («Conversion Cookie»), if you reached our website via a Google advertisement. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve personal identification. If you visit certain of our pages, and the cookie is not yet expired, we and Google can recognize someone has clicked on the advertisement and was thus transferred to our page. Each AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be traced via the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected via the Conversion Cookie is used to prepare Conversion Statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for Conversion Tracking. We do not receive any information with which you can be identified personally. 

The information about your use of the website collected by the cookie are, as a rule, transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Your browser is assigned interestrelevant categories on the basis of the collected information.  

We use the data about you, acquired with the above stated cookie (so-called Conversion-Tracking) for the following purposes:

  • Remarketing
  • Target groups with common interests
  • User-defined target groups with joint interests 
  • Target groups with buying intention 
  • Similar target groups 
  • Demographic and geographic orientation

Furthermore, you have the possibility to object to the interestrelated advertising by Google. To do this, you must call up, from each of the Internet browsers you use, the link www.google.de/settings/ads and make the desired settings there.

7.4 Google Tag Manager
We also use the «Google Tag Manager», a service from Google Inc., to integrate and manage Google Analysis and Marketing Services on our website. 

The tool Tag Manager itself, which implements the tags, is a domain without cookies and does not collect personal data. The tool, however, does take care of triggering other tags, which for their part possibly collect data. Google Tag Manager itself, does not access this data. If a deactivation was carried out on the domain or cookie level, this remains for all Tracking Tags which are implemented with Google Tag Manager. You can gain further information about data use for marketing purposes by Google at the overview page: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads, the Privacy Policy from Google can be called up at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

8 Social Plugins 

We use social plugins on our website. These are little programs or program packages with which software can be adapted and expanded according to own requirements. Many programs, such as graphic programs, media players or Internet browsers support the functions which the normal user requires in their basic version. 

On our website we have links installed to our social media profiles with the following social networks:

  • Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
  • Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA
  • Google +, a service operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre, Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
  • YouTube, a service operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre, Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA 

When you visit our website and use one of the Social Plugins listed on the website, a direct connection will be established between your browser and the server of the social network concerned. Through this, the network receives the information, that you visited our website with your IP address and called up the link. When you call up a link to a network while you are logged in to your account with the concerned network, the contents of our page can be linked with your profile in the network, which means that the network can assign your visit to our website directly to your user account and we receive data such as name, e-mail, place, list of friends and profile image. Through this data we can offer certain functions on the pages. If you wish to prevent this, you should log out before confirming corresponding links. An assignment takes place in any case when you log in to the corresponding network after operating the link.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Google or Instagram via your user account while you visit our website, the respec-tive provider can also assign the visit to the page to your user account. If you interact with a plug-in, for example the “Like”- or “g+1” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the respective provider in the USA and is stored there. The information is also published in the respective social network via your user account and is shown to your contacts there.

Even if you are not logged in with the providers of the plug-ins while visiting our website, the data collected by the plug-ins can possibly be assigned to your respective user account. Through a plug-in, a cookie is set with an identifier every time the website is called up. As your browser sends this cookie unasked during every connection with a server of the respective provider, Facebook, Google and Instagram could, in principle, prepare a profile of which website the user belonging to the identifier, visits. If necessary, it would then be possible to again assign this identifier to a person at a later point of time - for example when logging in with the provider.

If you do not wish the assignment to you profile with the plug-in provider, you need to log out from the respective service before you visit our Internet site. In addition, you can select the function «Block cookies from third-party providers» in your browser settings, then your browser does not send cookies to the respective service of the social network.  With this setting it is possible that, apart from the plug-ins, other crosspage functions of other providers do not function any longer. You can also prevent the download of social media plug-ins in total with a special add-on for your browser, e.g. with the script blocker “NoScript” (available at http://noscript.net/).

Furthermore, we use «Google + 1». Via the Google +1 button you and other users receive personalised contents from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information, which you have provided for a Contents +1 and information about the page which you looked at when clicking on +1. Your +1 can be faded in as references together with your profile name and your photo in Google Services, such as, for instance, in search results or in your Google profile, or at other places on the website and advertisements in the Internet. 

Please see the data protection notice of the respective provider for further information about the purpose and scope of data collection, as well as the further processing and use of the data: there you can also find further information about your corresponding rights and setting options to protect your private sphere as well as your right to object to the establishment of user profiles: 

9 Your Rights

You are fundamentally entitled to the right to request, rectification, erasure, restriction, data portability, objection and withdrawal with regard to your personal data. If you believe that the processing of your data violates the data protection law, or your data protection claims have been violated in any other way you can hand in a complaint with the supervisory authority.

Please contact mail@alwazzanunited.com if you have any questions, suggestions and wishes. 

10 Use of the Website by Minors

The website is directed at an adult audience. Minors, in particular children below the age of 16 years, are prohibited from transmitting their data to us, or to register for a service. If we discover that such data has been transmitted to us, this data will be deleted from our database. The parents (or legal representative) of the child can contact us and apply for the deletion or cancellation/deregistration. For this we need a copy of an official document which identifies you as parents or guardian. 

11 Data Security 

We undertake technical and organisational safety precautions to protect your personal data against manipulation, losses, destruction or against the access of unauthorized persons and to guarantee the protection of their rights and the compliance with the applicable data protection provisions.

The undertaken measures shall guarantee the confidentiality and integrity of your data as well as the availability and capacity of our systems and services when processing your data permanently. They should also reinstate rapid restoration of the availability of data and the access to them in the case of a physical or technical incident. 

Our security measures also include the encryption of your data. The data traffic via this JURA website takes place encrypted via HTTPS. That means that all information that you enter online, are transmitted via an encrypted transmission route. As a result, this information cannot be accessed by unauthorized third parties at any time. 

Our data processing and our security measures are continuously improved according to the technological development. 

We also take our own, in-house data protection very seriously. Our employees and the service providers ordered by us are obligated to secrecy and compliance with the data protection provisions. Moreover, access to the data is granted them only as far as it is necessary. 

12 Links to Websites of other Providers

Our website also contains links to the websites of partners and authorised JURA specialist retailers. In as far as links to the websites of other providers exist, we have no influence on their contents. Therefore, warranty or liability cannot be accepted for these contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the contents of these sites. The linked sites were checked for possible legal violations and identifiable legal infringements at the time of the linking. Illegal contents were not apparent at the time of the linking. A permanent contextual content check of the linked sites is, however, not reasonable without concrete indications of a legal infringement. When legal infringements become known, such links will be removed immediately. 

13 Changes of the Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time with consideration of the applicable data protection provisions. The current status is 20 May 2018.
