In order for you to know at all times what data we collect and how we process it, we would like to explain to you below what we understand by personal data and what active measures we take to protect your personal data.

Collection of general data

Your internet browser automatically transmits data to the web server for technical reasons when accessing this website. Each record consists of the date and time of access, the URL of the referring web site, the file retrieved, the amount of data sent, the browser type and version, the operating system and the user’s IP address. Assignment of this data to a specific person is not possible. The stored data will only be evaluated internally and exclusively for statistical purposes.

Transfer of personal data

NORDSEE does not pass personal data on to third parties. To the extent permitted by law, NORDSEE may commission other companies to perform various tasks, such as supporting promotions and providing technical services for our offers. These contractors may use personal data only for the purpose of performing these specific tasks and not for any other purpose.

Use of cookies

Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or to transfer viruses to a computer.

Furthermore, NORDSEE analyzes usage behavior on the website with so-called “tracking cookies”. These are anonymous. It is neither possible nor do we seek to infer the usage behavior of a particular person from this data.

Google Analytics & Google Remarketing

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR), we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View , CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the users is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European privacy legislation  https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active). Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with further services related to the use of this online offer and the internet usage. In this case, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.

We use Google Analytics only to display the advertisements displayed within Google and its affiliate advertising services to those users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or that have certain features (e.g., interest in specific topics or products based on our online presence, visited websites), which we submit to Google (so-called “Remarketing” or “Google Analytics Audiences”). With the help of Remarketing Audiences, we also seek to ensure that our ads are in line with potential user interest and are not annoying.

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the users will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address submitted by the user’s browser will not be merged with other data provided by Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; Users may also prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Another Google marketing service we use is Google Tag Manager, which allows Google analytics and marketing services to be integrated into our website (Google Analytics).

This website uses the remarketing feature of Google Inc. (“Google”). This feature is designed to show interest-based ads to visitors to the site through the Google Network. The website visitor’s browser stores so-called “cookies,” text files that are stored on your computer and that allow visitors to be recognized when they visit websites that belong to the Google advertising network. On these websites, visitors can then be presented with ads that relate to content that the visitor previously visited on websites that use Google’s remarketing feature. Google states that it does not collect any personal data during this process. However, if you do not wish Google Remarketing to be used, you can disable it by making the appropriate settings at http://www.google.com/settings/ads. Alternatively, you can disable the use of cookies for interest-based advertising through the advertising network initiative by following the instructions at www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.
