On this Site and some unaffiliated sites, we display interest-based advertising using information you make available to us when you interact with our Site, content or Services. Interest-based ads, also sometimes referred to as personalized or targeted ads, are displayed to you based on information from activities such as purchasing on the Site, visiting sites that contain our content or ads, interacting with our tools or using our payment services. In particular, the following technologies are used: the third party tools such as Google Analytics and other tracking / marketing applications are used by Vicedeal.
We do not associate your interaction with unaffiliated sites with your identity in providing you with interest-based ads.
We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or to third party sites that display our interest-based ads. However, advertisers and other third-parties (including the ad networks, ad-serving companies, and other service providers they may use) may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized ad or content are part of the group that the ad or content is directed towards (for example, users in a particular geographical area or users who bought or browsed for classical music). Also, some third-parties may provide us information about you (such as demographic information or sites where you have been shown ads) from online sources that we may use to provide you more relevant and useful advertising.
We use the Firebase service from Google LLC. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) in order to derive application behavioural analytics. We use that information to see how users interact with our website and app.
Firebase is part of the Google Cloud Platform and offers numerous services for developers. A list can be found here.
Some Firebase services process personal data. In most cases, the personal data is limited to so-called “instance IDs”, which are provided with a time stamp. These “Instance IDs” assigned by Firebase are unique and thus allow the linking of different events or processes. This data does not represent personally identifiable information for us, nor do we make any efforts to personalize it subsequently. We process these aggregated data to analyze and optimize usage behaviour, for example by evaluating crash reports.
Currently, we use the following Firebase services:
Google Analytics for Firebase: Google Analytics uses the data to provide analytics and attribution information. The precise information collected can vary by the device and environment.
You can find more information via this link and on Google's partner policy. Google Analytics retains ID-associated data for 60 days, and retains aggregate reporting and campaign data without automatic expiration, unless the Firebase customer changes their retention preference in their Analytics settings or deletes their project.For Analytics for Firebase, Google uses not only the "Instance ID" described above, but also the advertising ID of the end device.
You can restrict the use of the advertising ID in the device settings of your mobile device. For Android: Settings > Google > Ads > Reset Ad ID For iOS: Settings > Privacy > Advertising > No ad tracking
Firebase Dynamic Links: Dynamic Links uses device specs on iOS to open newly-installed apps to a specific page or context. Dynamic Links only stores device specs temporarily, to provide the service.
Firebase Cloud Messaging: Firebase Cloud Messaging is used to transmit push messages or so-called in-app messages (messages that are only displayed within the respective app). A pseudonymized push reference is assigned to the mobile device, which serves as a target for the push messages or in-app messages. The push messages can be deactivated and reactivated at any time in the settings of the mobile device. Firebase Cloud Messaging uses Instance IDs to determine which devices to deliver messages to. Firebase retains Instance IDs until the Firebase customer makes an API call to delete the ID. After the call, data is removed from live and backup systems within 180 days.
Firebase Realtime Database: Firebase Realtime Database is a hosting and backend service provided by Google Inc.
Purpose: Providing of hosting & backend infrastructure for our apps
Firebase Cloud Firestore: Firebase Cloud Firestore is a hosting and backend service provided by Google LLC.
Purpose: Providing of hosting & backend infrastructure for our apps
Firebase will use this information on our behalf for the above mentioned reasons.
The legal basis for the use of this service is Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f GDPR. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus guarantees compliance with European data protection legislation
Trengo Chat: To communicate with you on our website through a chat function, we use Trengo chat.
Read Trengo's privacy statement to learn how they handle the data they collect.
We offer you the option to subscribe to a newsletter on our website. Your personal data is collected while registering for the subscription. You will first receive a confirmation email in order to ensure that you wish to subscribe to the newsletter with your email address. Only once you have clicked on the activation link contained in this email will you be included in our email mailing list and receive the newsletter. The newsletter subscription is recorded for documentation purposes (IP address, date and time). You have the option at any time to unsubscribe from the newsletter by sending us a corresponding message. In particular, you may also use the link at the end of each newsletter in order to unsubscribe. The legal basis is provided by Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.
To dispatch the newsletter, we use the newsletter service ActiveCampaign, LLC, 150 N. Michigan Ave Suite 1230, Chicago, USA. This service provider only processes the data on our behalf and at our instruction in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.
Active Campaign is certified according to the "EU-US Privacy Shield". The "Privacy-Shield" is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA, which is intended to ensure compliance with European data protection standards in the USA.
We can also use Active Campaign to analyse our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent with Active Campaign, a file contained in the email (called a web beacon) connects to Active Campaign's servers. This allows us to determine whether you have opened a newsletter message and which links have been clicked on.
In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of access, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. It is used exclusively for statistical analysis of our newsletter campaigns.
The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.
The evaluation of the click behaviour of our newsletter recipients is in our legitimate interest in a target group-oriented design of our offer. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit f DSGVO.
If you do not wish to receive an analysis from Active Campaign, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. Unfortunately it is not possible to send the newsletter without such an analysis.

Within our online offers, the so called "TikTok pixel" of the social network TikTok, which is operated by TikTok Technology Limited, 10 Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin, D02 T380, Ireland ("TikTok"), is used.
On the one hand, the TikTok pixel enables TikTok to determine you as a visitor of our online offers as a target group for the presentation of ads (so called "TikTok-Ads").
Accordingly, we use the TikTok pixel to display the TikTok-Ads placed by us only to those TikTok users who have also shown an interest in our online offers or who exhibit certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to TikTok (so-called "custom audiences").
With the help of the TikTok pixel, we also want to ensure that our TikTok-Ads match the potential interest of users and are not annoying. The TikTok Pixels also help us track the effectiveness of TikTok-Ads for statistical and market research purposes by showing us whether users are redirected to our website after clicking on a TikTok ad (so called "conversion").
The processing of data by TikTok is carried out within the framework of the TikTok data use policy. Accordingly, general information on the presentation of TikTok ads, in the TikTok data usage policy. For specific information and details about the TikTok pixel and its functionality, see the TikTok help area
The use of the TikTok pixel as well as the storage of "conversion cookies" is based on Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
Contract data processing contract:
For the processing of data for which TikTok acts as a commissioned data processor, we have concluded a commissioned data processing agreement with TikTok, in which we oblige TikTok to protect the data of our customers and not to pass them on to third parties.
The owner employs the CRITEO Tool, of CRITEO S.A., 32 Rue Blanche, 75009 Paris, for statistic analysis of visits to its website, and for individual, interest based advertising (CRITEO Dynamic Retargeting and CRITEO Sponsored Products), which may involve creation of pseudonymous user profiles from the user data linked with the content requested.
User data will be processed pseudonymously, i.e. there will be no data processed and stored that allow identification of individual users, and IP addresses will be truncated. Processing will be done on the basis of an online ID only. Online IDs or email addresses sent to CRITEO will be encrypted as hash value (checksum) and be stored as a string of characters that will not allow reverse identification.
You may further avoid future retrieving, processing and use of your data from CRITEO web beacons by loading and installing a web browser plugin available at https://adblockplus.org/

UET is used to track our customers behaviour after clicking on our ad. Universal Event Tracking (UET) is a powerful tool that records what customers do on our website. By placing a UET tag, Microsoft Advertising collects data that helps us track conversion goals and audiences with remarketing lists.
URL Tracking allows us to find out how people landed on our website by adding tracking parameters in Microsoft Advertising and using a third-party tracking tool or service to analyze the data. When an ad is showed, the tracking parameters are dynamically added to our landing page URL. This landing page URL is captured on our web server and a third-party tracking tool, such as Google Analytics, can interpret the data.
Dot is Yahoo's universal tracking tag.
We use Dot tags to communicate website and app events when we want to track performance and optimize our Yahoo search, native and display campaigns. Dot tags also allow us to use retargeting and advanced audience targeting for various Yahoo channels.
