II. Our service for you
1. The service of Remintrex GmbH
Remintrex GmbH specialises in interest-specific advertising in the mail-order sector. The objective here is to address a user who has shown certain customer behaviour at an advertised offer on the websites of one of our principals and to consider this customer behaviour in the advertising email sent to the user (so-called re-targeting).
In addition to this type of interest-specific advertising in form of email dispatch, Remintrex GmbH is also specialised in interest-specific advertising in form of SMS transmission, dispatch by mail as well as phone contact. Also in these cases, target is to provide the user interest-specific SMS, mail or phone advertising based on a certain displayed usage pattern on websites of our principals.
2. The advertising analysis service Remintrex
Remintrex GmbH, as contract data processor for its principals, hereby executes the technical dispatch of target and interest-specific advertising through the various channels where the products of a principal are advertised. Users, who gave their consent to receive advertising at advertising offers such as portals, competitions or surveys by third parties in the various channels and who have displayed certain user behaviour on the websites of a principal, are contacted by mail or phone.
In addition to this consent, the third party obtains a further consent according to the Data Protection Act. As a result, the user agrees that cookies are placed in his system, particularly also that his user data is read when visiting the website of a principal of Remintrex GmbH and used for the dispatch of targeted advertising through the various channels. The placed cookies provided with the respective ID are small files which are stored on the hard drive of the respective user – and which are allocated to the respective browser – through which certain information is transmitted to the advertising analysis service Remintrex, which allow more user-friendly and effective advertising.
If the user visits the website of a principal it is automatically transmitted – with the aid of the cookies via an iFrame incorporated at the principal – to Remintrex GmbH as contract data processor for the third party that the user has visited the website of the respective principal, which products he looked at and whether this resulted in a registration and/or a sale. The information is subsequently stored separately for each third part on a server of Remintrex GmbH – as the contract data processor of the third party. Based on the transmitted information, Remintrex GmbH will be able to provide a user with advertising on behalf of the respective third party which considers the consumer conduct and thus the interest of the respective user.
3. The dispatch process
The dispatch process, related to the various channels, is oriented on trigger determined in advance by the respective principal. The respective advertising action occurs based on this trigger. The frequency/execution of the respective advertising measure as well as any maximum limits of the respective advertising measure are discussed and coordinated between the principal and Remintrex GmbH prior to the execution of the agreement; the principal particularly determines the frequency in coordination with Remintrex GmbH. At his request, the principal can also receive special documentation.
4. Establishing, storing, amending, transmitting and using personal data
Personal data which were independently entered by the user are provided to third parties in the context of the registration process.
Even if the third party receives usage data concerning several websites due to the cooperation with several contractual partners, any overlapping user profiling does not occur. Remintrex GmbH technically ensures that the usage data concerning the visits of different principals are not connected to each other. Rather, information are raised, stored and used separately for each principal. Furthermore, the personal data are not transmitted to the principals.
Remintrex GmbH itself acts as technical service provider within a contract data processing relationship with the third party.
Remintrex GmbH itself does not record any personal data, but only anonymous information supplied by the placed cookies. This comprises the usage behaviour, equipment information (type of equipment, operating system and version) displayed on the websites of the principals as well as respective advertising events (i.e. the number and type of advertising measures shown to the user). The allocation of the cookie ID to the respective personal data stored by the third party occurs through hash-codes.
