Cookie Settings

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are saved on your computer or terminal device when you use web pages. There are basically two types of cookies:


Temporary Cookies

Such cookies are temporarily stored on your computer or terminal during your visit to our website and then deleted.


Persistent cookies

These cookies remain on your computer for a long time and allow you to assign several sessions to the same terminal device. 

How we use cookies

In general, pressrelations uses various Internet technologies (e.g. cookies, Java script) only, to make it easier for you to use pressrelations Internet applications and to optimize them on the basis of anonymized, stored user data. 

This means:

 

  • In order to remember your chosen language during the session so that you can navigate more easily on our pages.
  • For data analysis, such as the evaluation of visitor numbers to our websites or the most frequently visited websites. We use the analysis results for optimization purposes of our website. 

 

Information on cookie usage

In server log files, the provider of the website automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data are not merged with other data sources. The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google") and Google DoubleClick-Cookies. Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, by activating IP anonymization on this website, Google will previously shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states 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 where it will be shortened. 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 other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. pressrelations uses non-personalised information about the IP address, date of the website visit as well as the duration on the respective subpages with the help of Google Analytics. These data are evaluated by us for statistical purposes in order to continuously improve our offer. You can prevent the storage of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser software.

DoubleClick cookies do not contain any personal data. Occasionally, the cookie may contain an additional, anonymous identifier to identify a campaign with which a user has previously come into contact. This ensures that no conclusions can be drawn about the web behaviour of a specific person.

The website uses Google Remarketing Tags to promote our services. The Google Remarketing JavaScript code implemented on this website stores a cookie on the user's computer for remarketing purposes. At a later date, pressrelations advertisements may be delivered to the user if the user acts on websites of the Google search and display network. All data is collected anonymously so that no conclusions can be drawn about specific persons. Users can object to the remarketing functionality by changing the Google Remarketing Tags or deactivating the remarketing. Alternatively, users can disable the use of cookies by third parties by using them.

We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" in order to guarantee anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
