- Web analysis and commercial tracking
- Google Analytics
Our website uses the online marketing programme “Google AdWords”, including conversion tracking. Google conversion tracking is a service operated by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). If you click on adverts placed by Google, a cookie is placed on your computer for conversion tracking. These cookies have limited validity, do not contain any personal data and thus cannot be used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that you have clicked on the advert and were forwarded to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a separate cookie. Therefore, it is not possible to track cookies relating to the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie serves the purpose of producing conversion statistics. This allows us to find out the total number of users who have clicked on our adverts and were forwarded to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which could be used to personally identify users. Processing is carried out on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR due to our justified interest in targeted marketing and analysis of the effectiveness and efficiency of this marketing.

This website uses the Hotjar web analysis service from Hotjar Ltd.. Hotjar Ltd. is a European company with registered offices in Malta (Hotjar Ltd, Level 2, St Julians Business Centre, 3, Elia Zammit Street, St Julians STJ 1000, Malta, Europe, Tel.: +1 (855) 464-6788).
This tool can be used to track movements on websites that use Hotjar (so-called heat maps). In this way it is possible to monitor how a user scrolls and which buttons they click, and how often, for example. The tool can also be used to obtain feedback directly from the website users. This provides us with valuable information to help us make our websites even faster and more customer-friendly.
When using this tool, we hold the protection of your personal data in high regard. We can only track which buttons were clicked, the cursor movement, how far was scrolled, screen size, type of device and browser information, geographic location (only country) to optimize our website. Areas in which personal data of you or third parties is shown are automatically blanked out by Hotjar and thus not transparent at any time. To rule out identification of individuals IP addresses are only stored and processed anonymously. Hotjar is using several services of third-party-providers like Google Analytics and Optimizely. So, it may be the case that those providers collect data that was transmitted by your browser in the context of a website request. An example would be your IP address or cookies. In those exceptional cases this processing will occur in accordance to art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR on the basis of our justified interest in statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes.
Hotjar gives every user the opportunity to prevent the use of the Hotjar tool with a “Do Not Track header” so that no data is recorded about their visit to the respective website. This is a setting that the latest version of all common browsers supports. Your browser hereby sends a query to Hotjar instructing it to deactivate tracking of the respective user. If you visit sipgate websites with different browsers/computers, you have to configure the “Do Not Track header” separately for each of these browsers/computers.
Detailed instructions with information about your browser can be found at: https://www.hotjar.com/legal/compliance/opt-out

The plugins are identified by a Facebook logo or the add-on “Facebook Social Plugin”. An overview of the Facebook plugins is provided here.

Facebook can then attribute your visit to our website to your user account.

The advertisements that refer to the content that the visitors have already retrieved on other websites that use the Google Remarketing function can be presented to the visitors on these pages. Google states that it does not capture any personal data during this action. Furthermore, If you have chosen to enable Google to associate your web and app browsing history with your Google account, and to use information from your Google account to personalize ads, Google will use your data together with the Google Analytics data to build audience lists for cross-device remarketing.
