Google Analytics: We use a tool called "Google Analytics", a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google") to collect information about use of the Website. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit the Website, what pages are visited, and what other sites were visited prior to coming to the Website. The Website may use certain features of Google Analytics, including: (a) "Demographics and Interest Reporting" to analyze information regarding the interests and demographics of users of the Website, and such non-personally identifiable information is used in the same manner as we use other non-personally identifiable information as described in this Policy; (b) "Remarketing with Google Analytics" to place ads on other sites directed to users who have visited the Website; and (c) "Google Display Network Impression Reporting" to report how users' interactions with our ads relate to their visits to the Website. We use the information we get from Google Analytics to improve the Website. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Website, rather than your name or other identifying information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the Website, the cookie cannot be used by anyone other than Google. Google's ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Website is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to the Website by disabling cookies on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use all functions of the Website. You can opt out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads by changing the ad settings at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662856. You also can opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics in the future by downloading and installing Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on for your current web browser at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.

Google AdWords Conversion Tracking 

This website uses the online advertising program “Google AdWords” and as part of Google AdWords, the conversion tracking of Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA („Google“). We use the Google AdWords service to bring awareness to our attractive offers through the help of advertising materials (so-called Google AdWords) on external websites. With the data obtained from these advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful each individual advertising campaign is. This helps us to pursue our goal of showing you advertisements that are of interest to you, making our website more interesting to you, and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs. 

The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on a Google sponsored AdWords advertisement. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, we (as well as Google) can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords advertisers' websites. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can block this usage by disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie through your Internet browser under User Preferences. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. We use Google AdWords based on our legitimate interest in targeted advertising pursuant to  Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

US-based Google LLC is certified under the EU-US data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” which ensures compliance with current EU data protection regulations.

You can permanently deactivate ad specific cookies by adjusting your Browser’s software settings to block them or by downloading and installing the Browser Plug-in found at the following link: http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin?hl=de

Please note, that if you deactivate cookies, certain features of this site may not be usable or only usable to a limited extent.

UBJ may allow other companies, called third party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements on the Website.

They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content.

UBJ does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third party ad servers or ad networks without your consent. However, please note that if an advertiser asks UBJ to show an advertisement to a certain audience and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach. You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third party ad servers or ad networks. This Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such advertisers. 

How We Protect Your Information

UBJ uses commercially reasonable ethical, physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information consistent with industry standards. For example, we use encryption, passwords, and physical security measures to help protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. The security of your personal information is important to us, but please remember that no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is ever 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially reasonable means to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the absolute security of any information you transmit to UBJ or the Website or Services, and you do so at your own risk. When UBJ receives a transmission of personally identifying information from you, UBJ makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of such information on our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our ethical, physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

Facebook Pixel

We use the so-called “Facebook Pixel” of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, to build so-called “Custom Audiences.” This serves to optimize our advertising on Facebook’s social network, to only post relevant ads, as well as to measure to the success of our Facebook advertising campaigns. With Facebook Pixel, it is possible for Facebook to identify visitors of our website as the target audience for the display of advertisement on Facebook’s social network.

Through the use of Facebook Pixel on our website, a direct connection is made to the Facebook server when visiting our website. Your visit to our website and the pages you have viewed are transmitted to the Facebook server. In addition, information and parameters are transmitted that are required for the optimization of our advertisements, the increase in relevance as well as for measuring their success. In particular, this is information about so-called “conversion-events” (ie., whether a registration or a purchase has been completed).

For more information about the collection and use of data by Facebook, as well as about your rights in relation to this matter and ways to protect your privacy, please refer to Facebook’s privacy policy found at: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

California Do Not Track Disclosures

California Business & Professions Code Section 22575(b) (as amended effective January 1, 2014) provides that California residents are entitled to know how a website operator responds to "Do Not Track" (DNT) browser settings. DNT is a feature offered by some browsers which, when enabled, sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing is not tracked, such as by third party ad networks, social networks and analytic companies. We do not currently take actions to respond to DNT signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a DNT standard once one is created. For information about DNT, please visit: www.allaboutdnt.org.
