The ordering party agrees that the personal data arising from the business relationship with Juwel Aquarium AG & Co.

This website stores data with usage information (visited web pages, number of visits, visiting times, length of the visit on individual pages etc.) by means of so-called cookies on the hard drive of the user. These usage profiles are anonymised and analysed in a technical (statistical) evaluation procedure in order to facilitate a selection tailored to the interests of the respective user when displaying Internet advertising (e.g. banners) on other web pages later.

This procedure is also referred to as behavioural targeting. Personal data, e.g. the name, address, e-mail address, will not be saved in the cookies under any circumstances in that context. The IP address will be transmitted to the service provider, but only be saved and processed further in an abbreviated or encrypted form (i.e. replaced with another number sequence which does not allow conclusions as to the original IP number sequence and cannot be traced back again) there in this context.

The behavioural targeting is realised by third companies that also realise advertising for web pages of other providers. These third companies then create the usage profiles by means of cookies themselves and use their respective targeting systems to select the gathered data for the purpose of customised advertising. The company is in particular:GroupM Competence Center AG

You may obtain further information on the data privacy and behavioural targeting of these providers and their technology on the indicated web page of the specified company.

We and the specified third companies do not need express permission for behavioural targeting due to the pseudonymous and/or anonymous character of the data (art. 15 sec. 3 German Telemedia Act). However, you may object to the use of behavioural targeting towards the specified company. Please use the following link to that end: GroupM Competence Center AG
