A cookie is a small text file that collects information about the use of a website. These cookies do not contain any personal data, cannot be identified as any specific person, and as long as not otherwise stated, are automatically deleted within two years. This data is not merged with any other data sources.
In order to satisfy the legal requirement for documentation of your consent to receiving emails from us, TheBestPrices saves the IP address used when you register for our services.
TheBestPrices uses Optimizely, a web analysis service provided by Optimizely Inc., 631 Howard Street, Suite 100, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA (hereinafter referred to as "Optimizely") based on cookie technology. The information gathered by the cookies about your website use will normally be transferred and saved to an Optimizely server located in the USA. Your IP address will be truncated by Optimizely beforehand within EU member states or other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to an Optimizely server located in the USA and truncated there. Optimizely is commissioned by TheBestPrices to use the information to analyse usage of the website and to create reports about website activity.
The IP addresses collected by Optimizely via your browser will not be merged with any other data from Optimizely. You can deactivate tracking by Optimizely at any time (thereby also disabling the capture of data by Optimizely via cookies on your use of the website - in addition to your IP address - and thus the processing of this data by Optimizely) by following the instructions at https://www.optimizely.com/opt_out.
As far as Google AdSense, an ad service provider by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as "Google") places ads on the websites (text links, banners, etc.), your browser may save a Google or third-party cookie. The information saved on the cookie can be recorded, collected and analysed by Google or other third parties. Furthermore, to collect information about web browsing activities Google AdSense uses so-called "WebBeacons" (transparent image files), that enables tracking, transferring, collecting and recording of users' navigation through websites. The tracking information generated through the cookie and/or web beacon about your use of the websites is transferred to a server owned by Google in the USA and stored there. Google uses this information for the purpose of evaluating your user patterns relating to the AdSense ads. Google may also transfer this data to third parties where required to do so by law or insofar as third parties have been commissioned by Google to process this data. Google states that it will not associate your IP address with any other data that they hold. Further information and the option of opting-out of this advertising is available at the following link: https://www.google.com/settings/u/0/ads/anonymous?hl=en.
Further information is available at: https://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html (general information on Google Analytics and privacy protection).
TheBestPrices uses the Google Tag Management with which tracking pixels from third party providers that are named here are loaded onto the websites. This is carried out anonymously with pseudonyms as described above and below. The information gathered is impersonal and can be used by TheBestPrices and its partners.
The tag manager tool itself (which deploys the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personally identifiable information. The tool instructs other tags to fire, and these other tags may collect data. This data is not accessed by Google Tag Manager. If users have opted-out at the domain or cookie levels, they will stay opted-out for all of the tracking tags deployed using Google Tag Manager.

In certain Internet pages, TheBestPrices publishes adverts from third parties that have been made available by Criteo SA, 32 Rue Blanche, 75009 Paris, France. The purpose of these adverts is to provide our users with more content that is relevant to that which the respective users have recently viewed. The adverts displayed will be controlled and provided exclusively by Criteo both in terms of content and on a technical level. If the user has not opted out of this service (see below), the selection of adverts displayed is based on the content that the user is viewing at the time or has viewed recently on the relevant websites. Criteo states that it will only collect anonymous data.
In the same way, TheBestPrices uses Criteo to publish adverts on the websites of third parties and emails of third parties (https://emailprivacy.criteo.com/gb/index.html) in order to connect with former customers. The identity of the customer will remain unidentified with a pseudonym being used to recognise the former customer. This takes place on various devices by means of an encrypted (indecipherable) email address. Cookies are stored for 180 days.

Social Plugins (hereinafter referred to as "plugins") provided by the social networks Facebook and Google+ (hereinafter referred to as "networks") are integrated. The operators of these services are Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour Dublin 2, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Facebook") and Google. On the individual webpages, the plugins are displayed in the form of buttons (hereinafter referred to as "the buttons") with the corresponding network logo. For additional protection of your data the plugins only work after you move the mouse cursor over the button. The browser then establishes a direct connection to the server of the corresponding network and the plugin content is transferred directly via the network server and embeds it into the website. By embedding the plugins, networks are able to receive information about you having accessed the respective page of the website. If you are logged into the social network when using a plugin, then the network that made this button available will be able to assign the visit to this website to your social network account. If you interact with the plugins, by clicking a button or entering a comment for instance, then the corresponding information is transmitted via your browser directly to the respective network. If you are a member of one of these networks and do not wish this data to be processed by them, you must log out of the respective network before visiting the website with the plugins and delete all cookie that have been saved on your device. You may refer to the websites of the networks concerning questions as to the purpose and scope of data processing ( https://www.facebook.com/policy.php or https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/partners/ ). Furthermore, those who have a user account with one of these networks can use the privacy settings available in the respective user account to protect privacy. Software from third parties can also be used to block plugins. The "Facebook Blocker", for example, may be downloaded and installed at the user's own risk under the following link: http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/.
TheBestPrices uses the pixel "Website Custom Audiences" from Facebook in order to advertise on the social network site. If you visit the websites, the pixel can make a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. If you are a Facebook user and do not delete cookies prior to logging in to Facebook then Facebook can assign your visit to the websites to your Facebook user account. TheBestPrices can only select which groups of Facebook users (according to age, interests, etc.) are shown the TheBestPrices advertising. No data, such as the users' email addresses, encrypted or otherwise, shall be sent to Facebook. Further information on this topic can be found in Facebook's data policy at: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

Once the Facebook Conversion Pixel has been activated by your browser, Facebook is able to recognise whether a Facebook advertisement was successful, i.e. resulted in a purchase. The data passed onto TheBestPrices by Facebook as a result of this pixel is entirely statistical and contains no personal reference to any specific person. This enables TheBestPrices to evaluate the success of its Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes. If you are logged into Facebook, TheBestPrices will refer you to Facebook's data policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy. Please click here if you, as a Facebook user, do not consent to this use of the Conversion Pixel: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads
