Aggregated Statistics

NATIX.io may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. NATIX.io may display this statistical information publicly or provide it to others. However, NATIX.io does not disclose your personally-identifying information.

Log Files

Like most website operators, NATIX.io collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. NATIX.io's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how NATIX.io's visitors use its website. NATIX.io follows a standard procedure of using log files.

The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users' movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.

Facebook is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield and thus offers sufficient guarantees that it adheres to European data protection laws.

Facebook processes data in line with its own guidelines on data usage. You’ll find relevant general information on the display of Facebook ads in Facebook’s data protection policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. You’ll find special information and details about the Facebook pixel and the way it works in Facebook’s Help Centre: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.

a) Purpose of data processing

We use the Facebook pixel for the purposes of analysis, optimisation and economical operation of our website. Using the Facebook pixel, Facebook is able, firstly, to identify visitors to our website as belonging to target groups in order to display adverts (“Facebook ads”). We therefore use the Facebook pixel so that we are able to only show the Facebook ads placed by us to Facebook users who have shown an interest in our online presence. With the aid of the Facebook pixel, we aim to ensure that our Facebook ads are relevant to the potential interests of each user and are not perceived as an irritation. Furthermore, using the Facebook pixel, we can track the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes because we can see whether users were forwarded to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (“conversion”).

b) Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using the Facebook pixel is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Point f GDPR, that is a legitimate interest on our part. More specifically, our legitimate interest rests in this regard on the analysis, optimisation and economical operation of our website and online presence.

c) Objection and deletion options / Opt-out

You can opt out of having your data gathered and used by the Facebook pixel for the purpose of displaying Facebook ads. In order to choose what kinds of adverts you see on Facebook, you can access the settings page on Facebook and follow the instructions there regarding the settings options for usage-based advertising: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. Your settings will be changed across all platforms, that is, they will apply to all your devices, e.g. desktop computer and mobile devices.

Furthermore, you can opt out of the use of cookies, which are used to measure reach and for advertising purposes, via the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/) and additionally the American website (http://www.aboutads.info/choices) or the European website (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/).

When you click on an advert placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files placed on the user’s computer by the internet browser. These cookies do not personally identify the user. If the user visits certain pages on this website and the cookie has still not expired, we and Google can see that the user has clicked on the advert and was passed on to this page.(“Google”).

Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie.

The cookies cannot be tracked beyond the websites of AdWords customers. You can find more information on Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking in Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

a) Purpose of data processing

The information gathered using conversion cookies is used to produce conversion statistics for us. We get to know the total number of users who have clicked on our AdWords advert and who were forwarded to our website. However, we are not given any information that could be used to identify users personally. The purpose is analysing and optimising our advertising and marketing activities.

b) Legal basis for data processing

Conversion cookies are stored on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Point f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour to allow us to optimise our website and advertising measures.

Checks are carried out regularly, at least once a year, to see whether the legitimate interest still applies. Our legitimate interest no longer applies in particular where the data, due to the passage of time, no longer has sufficient relevance for us with regard to the evaluation of website use and statistics relating to website use, which is assumed to be the case after three years at the latest.

d) Objection and deletion options / Opt-out By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or limit the transmission of cookies. Previously stored cookies can be deleted at any time. This can also happen automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may not be possible to use all the functions of the site.

Google Remarketing

Google Remarketing is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Inc.’s remarketing function is used to show interest-based adverts to visitors to the website within the framework of the Google advertising network.

Google uses information (although not personal data such as your name or email address) about your visits to this and other websites to make it possible to show ads for products and services that will interest you. Your browser is assigned a pseudonymous identification number (ID) to check which ads have been displayed in your browser and which ads have been viewed.

The information produced by the cookies is transmitted by Google to a server in the US for analysis, and is stored there. Google will only pass on the data to third parties on the basis of statutory provisions or within the framework of contract data processing.

NATIX.io uses the remarketing services to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven't completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone's past visits.

By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or limit the transmission of cookies. Previously stored cookies can be deleted at any time. This can also happen automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may not be possible to use all the functions of the site.

d) Objection and deletion options / Opt-out

You can prevent cookies from being stored by changing the settings on your browser software; please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website.

Alternatively, you can deactivate the use of cookies for interest-based advertising via the Advertising Network Initiative by following the instructions at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

If you use Google Chrome or Chromium, you can – in addition to the choices made in the “Settings” menu – install a plugin at https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin that deactivates personalised adverts. Please note, however, that you will continue to see just as many adverts as before, only that these will no longer be tailored to your browsing behaviour.

Google Tag Manager

Our website uses Google Tag Manager, a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This is a tool provided by Google that simplifies the process of setting and administering tags. The tools/plugins mentioned above, e.g. Facebook pixel, LinkedIn Insight Tag etc., as well as Google Analytics and others, are managed using Google Tag Manager.
