asknet AG (hereinafter referred to as “asknet AG” or “we”) processes users’ personal data only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. When visiting our website, the following data is processed:
Our users’ personal data is processed regularly with the user’s consent. Cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons constitute an exception and we are permitted to process the data by legal regulations. Data and log files are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR.
The personal data of the person in question is deleted or blocked by us as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. In case of data processing for the provision of the websites, the deletion takes place once the respective session has ended. In case of storage of personal data in log files, the deletion takes place after 30 days. Extended storage is possible if the users’ IP addresses are deleted or altered beforehand so it is no longer possible to allocate them to the accessing client.
There is a contact form available on our website that can be used for making contact electronically. If a user takes up this option, the data he/she enters in the input mask is transmitted to us and stored:
The user has the option to revoke his/her consent to process personal data at any time. If the user makes contact with us via email, he/she can object to the storage of his/her personal data. In such a case, the contact request cannot be processed or the communication cannot be pursued. In this case, all personal data stored over the course of establishing contact is deleted.
asknet AG implements technical and organisational safety measures to protect users’ personal data from random or intentional manipulations, loss, destruction or from access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are subject to continuous improvement in line with technological developments.

This site uses the remarketing feature of Google Inc. ("Google"). This function is used to present interest-based advertisements within the Google advertising network. The site visitor's browser stores so called "cookies", text files that are stored locally on your computer and will allow recognizing the visitor when opening web sites that are affiliated to Google's advertising network.

We employ web-tracking solutions from SnowPlow Analytics Limited, d 32-38 Scrutton Street, London, Great Britain ("SnowPlow"). We use the data that is gathered with help from SnowPlow exclusively for statistical aims. In this case, we also add a cookie to your browser, so that a returning user can be recognised as such. The SnowPlow cookie contains a date and a randomly generated number that cannot be traced back ("Hash") as well as the number of the current session;
In the case of each access request, the following data is transmitted to SnowPlow and saved:
URL of the target page ("Target URL") and URL of the internet page from which you were referred ("Referrer URL");
Content of the cookie;
IP address, which is anonymised by the SnowPlow server, and the port of the browser;
Name, version, language of the browser and the operating system, as this is communicated from the browser of the website user (i.e., you);
Throughout this procedure, we do not receive any personal data regarding you: we receive only statistical information about the use of this website.

SnowPlow is an open-source tracking solution, which is managed by SnowPlow Analytics Ltd., EC2A 4RQ London, UK. The version of SnowPlow that we employ uses a tracking pixel and a cookie, allowing us to monitor how many visitors this website receives, when these visitors visit the website and how often, which of our pages are viewed in which order, as well as which browsers and operating systems these visitors use. If you make a purchase, we learn the value of the shopping basket in Euros (we do not, however, learn what was purchased) and can attribute the individual transaction to your anonymous tracking profile.
The tracking pixel used by us to obtain this data is loaded by our tracking server when you visit this website. The data gathered is saved in a so-called tracking session together with an anonymous user identifier (unique Hash made up of your browser characteristics and the current time). We also use an in-house development, which deposits a separate, anonymous user identifier in the local storage of your browser. The acquisition and processing of data always takes place with no personal reference. In particular, we do not save any complete IP addresses.
If you do not agree to the saving and use of your usage data by SnowPlow, as described above, you can declare your objection to the acquisition of data that takes place via these web analysis measures. To do this, please click here.
