Advertising

Google AdWords

In order to increase awareness of our services, we use Google AdWords adverts and use conversion tracking and the Google Tag Manager within the framework of this, for the purpose of personalised online advertising which is tailored to interests and location. The option of anonymising the IP address is by an internal setting in Google Tag Manager, which cannot be viewed in the source of this website.

The adverts are incorporated into websites of the Google advertising network in accordance with search queries. We have the option of combining our adverts with certain search terms. With the assistance of the cookie, we can display adverts based on the previous visits of a user to our website. When a user clicks on an advert, a cookie is set on the computer of the user by Google. Further information concerning the cookie technology which is used can also be found in the notices of Google relating to the website statistics and in the Google Privacy Policy. With the assistance of this technology, Google and we as the customer are informed that a user has clicked on an advert and was redirected to our websites. The information which is obtained during this process is only used for a statistical evaluation in order to optimise adverts. We do not receive any information which could personally identify users. The statistics provided to us by Google contain the total number of users who have clicked on one of our adverts and, if applicable, whether these were redirected to a page of our website which contains a conversion tag. On the basis of these statistics, we can find out which search terms led to the most clicks on our advert and which adverts lead to the user getting in touch via the contact form.

Should you not wish this to take place, you can prevent the saving of the cookie which is necessary for this technology, for example via your browser settings. In such a case, your visit is not recorded under the user statistics. You also have the option of selecting the types of Google adverts and de-activating interest-based adverts on Google via the advertising settings.

Alternatively, you can de-activate the use of cookies by third party providers by accessing the de-activation assistant of the network advertising initiative.

Facebook Remarketing & Custom Audiences

Using the previously mentioned web beacons (FB Pixel), we tailor advertisements to you on the Facebook platform using the cookie data obtained from the use of our Service.

Custom Audience Pixel, a service of Facebook Inc., (1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA), is a small piece of Java script code which we have integrated into all of our websites. This piece of code provides a number of functions for the sending of application specific events and user defined data to Facebook. We use Custom Audience pixels in order to record information concerning the way in which visitors use our website. This pixel records and provides Facebook with information concerning the browser setting of the user, a hashed version of the Facebook ID and the URL which is being visited. Each Facebook user thus possesses a clear and device-independent Facebook ID, whereby it is possible to address the user via more than one device on the social network Facebook and to recognise him or her, so that we can target our visitors again for advertising purposes by means of Facebook adverts. After 90 days, the user information is deleted until the visitor accesses our website again. Therefore, no personal information is disclosed to Tech Circus in relation to the individual website visitors and we can only solicit website customer target groups once the target customer group has reached a critical mass in terms of numbers. Further information concerning Facebook and its private sphere settings above and beyond the details set out can be found in the Data Policy and the Terms of Service of Facebook Inc.
