2.1 Personal data and use

Personal data is information about the factual or personal circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. twago collects the following categories of data (individuals may also fall into several of these categories).

The personal data provided for the creation and completion of the user account and the public profile on twago is based on the concluded user contract and is used exclusively for contract processing. The user himself or herself decides to what extent he wants to provide data for publication. Excluded are the username, password, name, address, email address, telephone number, tax number and payment information, which are absolutely necessary for contract processing (e.g. making contact, invoicing) and therefore must be provided.

Exceptions are also evaluations, number of projects and project volume, which are always collected and are visible in the user's profile. The collection and transmission of this data is based on a legitimate interest of twago within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) DS-GMO and serves statistical purposes as well as the assessment of the seriousness of users and the prevention of fraud cases.

For using twago safePay, it is also mandatory to provide the I.D. data including photo and address, as the opening of an electronic money account with the service provider MangoPay S.A. requires identification of the account holder to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. 

If separate consent has been given, the email address will also be used to inform the user by email about twago or current promotions or participation in surveys for market research purposes or for quality assurance purposes.

7. Cookies and retargeting

 

7.1 Cookies


Cookies are small files which are stored on your data carrier and which store certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. Basically, there are two different types of cookies, so-called session cookies, which are deleted when you close your browser and temporary/permanent cookies which are stored on your data carrier for a longer period or indefinitely. The storage helps us to design our website and our offers according to your needs and to facilitate the use, for example by storing certain entries by you in such a way that you do not have to repeat them constantly.

In this respect, cookies help to make your visit on twago easier, more pleasant and more meaningful under many aspects. Cookies are alphanumeric information files that your web browser automatically stores on your computer's hard drive when you visit our website.

For example, we use cookies to identify you as a user without requiring you to log in separately. The usage does not provide us with new personal data about you as an online visitor. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a message appears whenever you receive a new cookie.

However, you can set your browser to accept cookies only if you agree to this. Usually, the help function in the menu bar of your web browser shows you how you can reject new cookies and deactivate cookies already received.

We would like to point out that deactivating cookies may prevent you from using all twago functions.

 

7.2 Retargeting


The twago online platform uses cookie technology to collect data. The aim is to optimize the range of products and advertising. The data is being anonymized and is not used to identify you personally. Your data will never be combined with the personal data stored by us. With the help of the anonymized data we can make our online offer more attractive for you and present you with offers, services and advertising that correspond to your areas of interest.

twago uses so-called retargeting technologies. These techniques enable users who have already visited the twago portal to be addressed with advertising on the websites of our partners. We are convinced that the insertion of personalized advertising is generally more interesting for the user than advertising without a personal reference. twago uses cookie technology and an analysis of the previous usage behaviour to display the advertising material. The data used is anonymized and never combined with personal data. Personal data is never stored at any time.

By using the twago portal, the user consents to the use of so-called cookies and thus to the anonymous collection, storage and use of usage data. The user also agrees that their data can be stored in cookies even after the end of the browser session and can be retrieved, for example, at the next visit. The user can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future by refusing to accept cookies in the browser settings.

 

8. Google Analytics

In order to constantly improve and optimize our offer, we use so-called tracking technologies. For this, we use the services of Google Analytics.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, we have set up an IP anonymization tool on our website to protect your data, so that your IP address is previously reduced by Google within Member States of the European Union and in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other data by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link[http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en]. For more information, please visit http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html.

 

9. Use of the Google +1 button

Our website uses the "+1" button of the social network Google Plus, which is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). The button can be recognized by the "+1" character on a white or coloured background.

When you visit a website of our internet presence that contains such a button, your browser establishes a direct connection to Google's servers. The content of the "+1" button is transmitted by Google directly to your browser and integrated into the website. We, therefore, have no influence on the amount of data Google collects with the button. According to Google, no personal data is collected without a click on the button. Such data, including the IP address, is only collected and processed for members who are logged in.

For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to Google's data protection information on the "+1" button: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html and the FAQ: http://bit.ly/r3Qmer.

10. Use of social plugins

Our website uses social plugins ("plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos or they are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin".

When you visit a website on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website. We, therefore, have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge:

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to obtain and store your IP address.

For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the Facebook data protection information: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our website and link it to your membership data stored on Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
