Cookies and Pixel Tags

Code-Zero collects information, which may include personal data, from your browser when you use our Sites. We use a variety of methods, such as cookies and pixel tags to collect this information, which may include your (i) IP-address; (ii) unique cookie identifier, cookie information and information on whether your device has software to access certain features; (iii) unique device identifier and device type; (iv) domain, browser type and language, (v) operating system and system settings; (vi) country and time zone; (vii) previously visited websites; (viii) information about your interaction with our Sites such as click behavior, purchases and indicated preferences; and (ix) access times and referring URLs.

Third parties may also collect information via Sites through cookies, third party plug-ins and widgets. These third parties collect data directly from your web browser and the processing of this data is subject to their own privacy policies.
We use cookies and pixel tags to track our customers’ usage of the Sites and to understand our customers’ preferences (such as country and language choices). This enables us to provide services to our customers and improve their online experience. We also use cookies and pixel tags to obtain aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction, to identify trends and obtain statistics so that we can improve our Sites. There are generally three categories of cookies used on our Sites:

  • Functional: These cookies are required for basic site functionality and are therefore always enabled. These include cookies that allow you to be remembered as you explore our Sites within a single session or, if you request, from session to session. They help make the shopping cart and checkout process possible as well as assist in security issues and conforming to regulations.
  • Performance: These cookies allow us to improve our Sites’ functionality by tracking usage. In some cases, these cookies improve the speed with which we can process your request and allow us to remember site preferences you have selected. Refusing these cookies may result in poorly-tailored recommendations and slow site performance.
  • Social media and Advertising: Social media cookies offer the possibility to connect you to your social networks and share content from our Sites through social media.  Advertising cookies (of third parties) collect information to help better tailor advertising to your interests, both within and beyond our Sites. In some cases, these cookies involve the processing of your personal data. Refusing these cookies may result in seeing advertising that is not as relevant to you or you not being able to link effectively with Facebook, Twitter, or other social networks and/or not allowing you to share content on social media.


You can always change your preference by visiting the "Cookie Settings" in your browser. For a comprehensive and up-to-date summary of every third-party accessing your web browser (through Code-Zero Sites or otherwise), we recommend installing a web browser plugin built for this purpose.  You can also choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser settings on each browser and device that you use. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you may not have access to many features that make our Sites and Apps more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.


Using Code-Zero site with third-party products and services

Our Sites and Apps allow you to interact with a wide variety of other digital products and services.  For example, our Sites and Apps can integrate with third-party devices for activity tracking, social networks, music streaming services and other digital services.
If you choose to connect your Code-Zero account with a third-party device or account, your privacy rights on third-party platforms will be governed by their respective policies.  For example, if you choose to share your Code-Zero activity on third-party social media platforms, the policies of those platforms govern the data that resides there.
Our Sites and Apps may provide links to other (third-party) websites and apps for your convenience or information. Linked sites and apps have their own privacy notices or policies, which we strongly encourage you to review. To the extent any linked websites or apps are not owned or controlled by us, we are not responsible for their content, any use of the websites or apps, or the privacy practices of the websites or apps.


Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("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 collected by the cookie about the use of our website (including your IP address) is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We would like to point out that on our websites Google Analytics has been extended by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();;" to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). Your IP address is therefore only recorded by Google at our request in a shortened form, which guarantees anonymisation and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your identity. If IP anonymisation is activated on our websites, your IP address will be reduced by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other countries 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. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activities for us and to provide us with further services associated with the use of websites and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. A transfer of this data by Google to third parties only takes place due to legal regulations or within the scope of order data processing. Under no circumstances will Google match your data with other data collected by Google. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google and the manner of data processing described above as well as the named purpose. 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 our website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of this 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. Further information on Google Analytics and data protection can be found at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.


Google AdWords

We use the online advertising program "Google AdWords" on our website and in this context conversion tracking (visit action evaluation). The Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is placed on your computer. These cookies have a limited validity, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our site and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we may recognize that you clicked on the ad and were directed to that page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. This means that it is not possible to track cookies on the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics. This tells us the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any information that personally identifies users. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO from the legitimate interest in targeted advertising and the analysis of the effect and efficiency of this advertising. For reasons arising from your particular situation, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data based on Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO. You can prevent cookies from being saved by selecting the appropriate technical settings in your browser software. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. They are then not included in the conversion tracking statistics. You can also disable personalized advertising for you in Google's advertising preferences. Instructions can be found at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en.

In addition, you can disable the use of cookies by third parties by visiting the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative at https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and implementing the additional opt-out information described there. For more information and Google's privacy policy, please visit: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en


Facebook Remarketing

We use the remarketing function "Custom Audiences" of Facebook Inc. (1601 p. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA; "Facebook"). This function serves the purpose of targeting the visitors of the website with interest-related advertising on the social network Facebook. For this purpose, the Facebook remarketing tag was implemented on the website. This tag establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers when you visit the website. This transfers to the Facebook server which of our pages you have visited. Facebook maps this information to your personal Facebook account. When you visit the Facebook social network, you will see personalized, interest-based Facebook ads. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f GDPR from the legitimate interest in the above-mentioned purpose. For reasons arising from your particular situation, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data based on Art. 6 (1) f GDPR. You can deactivate the remarketing function "Custom Audiences" here. For more information about Facebook's collection and use of the data, your rights and ways to protect your privacy, please see Facebook's privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.


Retargeting / Remarketing

Our websites use so-called retargeting technologies. We use these technologies to make our website more interesting for you. This technology enables Internet users who have already been interested in our shop and our products to be addressed with advertising on the websites of our partners. We are convinced that the insertion of personalized, interest-related advertising is generally more interesting for Internet users than advertising that has no such personal reference. The insertion of these advertising materials on the pages of our partners is based on a cookie technology and an analysis of the previous usage behaviour. This form of advertising is completely pseudonymous. No user profiles are merged with your personal data. By using our site, you consent to the use of so-called cookies and thus to the collection, storage and use of your user data. Furthermore, your data will be stored in cookies beyond the end of the browser session and can, for example, be retrieved the next time you visit the website. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future by refusing to accept cookies in your browser settings.


Changes to our privacy policy

Applicable law and our practices change over time. If we decide to update our privacy policy, we will post the changes on our Sites and Apps. If we materially change the way in which we process your personal data, we will provide you with prior notice, or where legally required, request your consent prior to implementing such changes. We strongly encourage you to read our privacy policy and keep yourself informed of our practices.  This privacy policy was last modified in May 2018.
