Use of the scalable central measurement procedures

Our website uses the measuring procedure (‘SZMnG’) of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.INFOnline.de/en/) to determine key statistical values for the use of our offers. The goal of the usage measurement is to statistically determine the number of visitors to our website and their browsing behaviour – based on a uniform standard procedure – and thus to obtain comparable market values.

For all providers of digital offers – who are members of the German Audit Bureau of Circulation (Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V., (IVW: http://www.ivw.eu/englische-version) or participate in the studies of the German Association of Online Research (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V., AGOF: https://www.agof.de/?lang=en) – the usage statistics are further processed on a regular basis by AGOF and the Labour Association for Media Analysis (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyze e.V., AGMA – http://www.agma-mmc.de) into ranges and published with the performance values ‘unique user’, and by the IVW with ‘page impression’ and ‘visits’. These ranges and statistics can be viewed on the respective websites.

1. Legal foundation for the processing

The measurement, by means of the measuring method SZMnG via INFOnline GmbH, occurs with legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR.

The purpose of processing personal data is the creation of statistics and the formation of user categories. The statistics are used to understand and substantiate the use of our offer. The user categories are the basis for an interest-oriented alignment of advertising material and advertising measures. For the marketing of this website, a usage measurement, which ensures comparability with other market participants, is essential. Our legitimate interest stems from the economic usability of the statistical findings and user categories and the market value of our website – also in direct comparison with third party websites – which can be determined from the statistics.

In addition, we have a legitimate interest in making the pseudonymised data of INFOnline, AGOF and IVW available for market research (AGOF, agma) and for statistical purposes (INFOnline, IVW). Furthermore, we have a legitimate interest in providing the pseudonymised data of INFOnline for the further development and provision of interest-oriented advertising material.

2. Type of data

INFOnline GmbH collects the following data, which indicate a personal reference in accordance with the EU-GDPR:

  • IP address: On the Internet, every device requires a unique address, the so-called IP address, for transmitting data. Temporary storage of the IP address is at least technically necessary due to how the Internet works. The IP addresses are truncated by 1 byte prior to every processing and only processed anonymously. No storage or further processing of the full IP addresses takes place.
  • A randomly generated client identifier: Range processing uses either a cookie with the ID ‘ioam.de’, a ‘local storage object’ or a signature created from various automatically transmitted data from your browser to recognise computer systems. This identifier is unique to a browser as long as the cookie or local storage object is not deleted. Therefore, a measurement of the data and the subsequent assignment to the respective client identifier is also possible if you access other websites that also use the measurement procedure (‘SZMnG ‘) of INFOnline GmbH. The validity of the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.

3. Use of the data

The measurement procedure of INFOnline GmbH, which is used on this website, determines usage data. This occurs in order to collect the performance values of page impressions, visits and clients as well as to provide additional metrics (e.g. qualified clients). The measured data is additionally used as follows:

  • A so-called geolocalisation, i.e. the assignment of a website visit to the area where the website was accessed, occurs exclusively on the basis of the anonymised IP address and only up to the geographical level of the states/regions. From the geographic information obtained in this way, in no case can the specific location of a user be determined.
  • The usage data of a technical client (for example, a browser on a device) are combined across websites and saved in a database. This information is used for the technical assessment of social information such as age and gender and given to the service providers of AGOF for further range processing. Within the scope of the AGOF study, social characteristics based on a random sample are technically evaluated as to which can be assigned to the following categories: age, gender, nationality, occupation, marital status, general household information, household income, place of residence, internet usage, online Interests, place of use and user type.

4. Retention period of the data

The complete IP address will not be saved by INFOnline GmbH. The truncated IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. The usage data in connection with the unique identifier will be stored for a maximum of 6 months.

5. Disclosure of the data

The IP address as well as the truncated IP address are not forwarded. For the creation of the AGOF study, data with client identifiers are forwarded to the following service providers of the AGOF:

6. Rights of the data subjects

The data subject has the following rights:

  • Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR)
  • Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)
  • Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)
  • Right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR)
  • Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 (f) GDPR)
  • Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)

For inquiries of this nature, please see the contact information provided at the end of this privacy policy. Please note that we have to ensure that the person making the inquiry is actually the data subject.

Right to object

If you do not want to participate in the measurement, you can opt-out at the following link: https://optout.ioam.de

In order to guarantee exclusion from the measurement, it is technically necessary to use a cookie. Should you delete the cookies in your browser, it is necessary to repeat the opt-out process at the link above.

The data subject has the right to file a complaint with a data protection authority.

Further information on data protection in the measurement process can be found on the website of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.INFOnline.de/en/), which operates the measurement process, the data protection website of AGOF (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz-allgemein/?lang=en) and the data protection website of IVW (http://www.ivw.eu/englische-version).

Using the scalable central measurement procedure via an application

Our application uses the measuring procedure (‘SZMnG’) of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.INFOnline.de/en/) to determine key statistical values for the use of our offers. The goal of the usage measurement is to statistically determine the usage intensity, number of uses and users of our application as well as their browsing behaviour – based on a uniform standard procedure – and thus to obtain comparable market values.

For all providers of digital offers – who are members of the German Audit Bureau of Circulation (Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V., IVW: http://www.ivw.eu/englische-version) or participate in the studies of the German Association of Online Research (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V., AGOF: https://www.agof.de/?lang=en) – the usage statistics are further processed on a regular basis by AGOF and the Labour Association for Media Analysis (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyze e.V., AGMA – http://www.agma-mmc.de) into ranges and published with the performance values ‘unique user’, and by the IVW with ‘page impression’ and ‘visits’. These ranges and statistics can be viewed on the respective websites.

The measurement, by means of the measuring method SZMnG via INFOnline GmbH, occurs with legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR.

The purpose of processing personal data is the creation of statistics and the formation of user categories. The statistics are used to understand and substantiate the use of our offer.

In addition, we have a legitimate interest in making the pseudonymised data of INFOnline, AGOF and IVW available for market research (AGOF, agma) and for statistical purposes (INFOnline, IVW). Furthermore, we have a legitimate interest in providing the pseudonymised data of INFOnline for the further development and provision of interest-oriented advertising material.

2. Type of data

INFOnline GmbH collects the following data, which indicate a personal reference in accordance with the GDPR:

  • IP address: On the Internet, every device requires a unique address, the so-called IP address, for transmitting data. Temporary storage of the IP address is at least technically necessary due to how the Internet works. The IP addresses are truncated prior to every processing and only processed anonymously. No storage or further processing of the full IP addresses takes place.
  • A randomly generated client identifier: Range processing uses either a cookie with the ID ‘ioam.de’, a ‘local storage object’ or a signature created from various automatically transmitted data from your browser to recognise computer systems. This identifier is unique to a browser as long as the cookie or local storage object is not deleted. Therefore, a measurement of the data and the subsequent assignment to the respective client identifier is also possible if you access other websites that also use the measurement procedure (‘SZMnG ‘) of INFOnline GmbH.

The following unique device identifiers can be transmitted as a hash to INFOnline GmbH:

  • Advertising identifier
  • Installation ID
  • Android ID
  • Vendor ID

3. Use of the data

The measurement procedure of INFOnline GmbH, which is used on this website, determines usage data. This occurs in order to collect the performance values of page impressions, visits and clients as well as to provide additional metrics (e.g. qualified clients). The measured data is additionally used as follows:

  • A so-called geolocalisation, i.e. the assignment of a website visit to the area where the website was accessed, occurs exclusively on the basis of the anonymised IP address and only up to the geographical level of the states/regions. From the geographic information obtained in this way, in no case can the specific location of a user be determined.
  • The usage data of a technical client (for example, a browser on a device) are combined across websites and saved in a database. This information is used for the technical assessment of social information such as age and gender and given to the service providers of AGOF for further range processing. Within the scope of the AGOF study, social characteristics based on a random sample are technically evaluated as to which can be assigned to the following categories: age, gender, nationality, occupation, marital status, general household information, household income, place of residence, internet usage, online Interests, place of use and user type.

4. Retention period of the data

The complete IP address will not be saved by INFOnline GmbH. The truncated IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. The usage data in connection with the unique identifier will be stored for a maximum of 6 months.

5. Disclosure of the data

The IP address as well as the truncated IP address are not forwarded. For the creation of the AGOF study, data with client identifiers are forwarded to the following service providers of the AGOF:
