Participation in Affiliate Partner Programs

Within our online offer, we set the following interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer) in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. * * f GDPR to the extent necessary for the operation of the affiliate system. In the following, we inform the users about the technical background.

The services offered by our contractual partners can also be advertised and linked on other websites (so-called affiliate links or after-buy systems, if, for example, links or services of third parties are offered after a contract has been concluded). The operators of the respective websites receive a commission if users follow the affiliate links and then take advantage of the offers.

In summary, our online offering requires that we can track whether users who are interested in affiliate links and/or the offers available to us, the offers are subsequently available at the instigation of the affiliate links or our online platform. For this purpose, the affiliate links and our offers are supplemented by certain values, which can be set a part of the link or otherwise, e.g. in a cookie. The values include in particular the original website (referrer), time, an online identifier of the operators of the website on which the affiliate link was located, an online identifier of the respective offer, an online identifier of the user, as well as Tracking-specific values such as advertising media ID, partner ID and categorizations.

The online identifiers of the users used by us are pseudonymous values. This means that the online identifiers do not contain any personal data such as names or e-mail addresses. They only help us to determine whether the same user who clicked on an affiliate link or was interested in an offer via our online offer, perceives the offer, i.e. has concluded a contract with the provider. However, the online identifier is personal to the extent that the partner company and also us, the online identifier is available together with other user data. Only in this way can the partner company tell us whether the user has accepted the offer and we can, for example, withdraw the bonus.
