Diese Datenschutzerklärung gilt für unsere Webseite, die unter der Domain https://www.linus-finance.com erreichbar ist („Webseite“), sowie in allen anderen Fällen, in denen wir Bezug auf die Datenschutzerklärung nehmen. Die Datenschutzerklärung gilt nicht für andere Angebote, auf die durch einen Link auf der Webseite lediglich verwiesen wird.

online tracking and INTEREST-BASED advertising

We and third parties acting on our behalf (e.g.LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter) operate on our behalf to collect information about your online activities over time and provide you with advertising tailored to your interests. Service providers that collect tracking data on our behalf may provide an opportunity for you to choose not to be tracked online.

LinkedIn Insight Tag

This website uses the "LinkedIn InsightTag", a conversion tool of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, WiltonPlace, Dublin 2, Ireland. This tool allows us to display advertising based on your interests on other websites. For this purpose, a cookie is set in your browser with a validity of 90 days. LinkedIn provides us with anonymized reports that contain data about ad activity as well as information about your interaction with our website. More information on data protection on LinkedIn can be found in LinkedIn's privacy policy.

You can also prevent the collection on LinkedIn of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website and the processing of this data by LinkedIn by setting an opt-out cookie that prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website. To do this, click on this link:

Disable LinkedIn Insight Tag

The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

The data processing is justified in each case according to (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, since we have a legitimate interest in displaying personalized advertising to you and evaluating the use of our website.

Facebook Pixel and Custom Audience

Due to our legitimate interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. GDPR, the so-called "Facebook pixel" of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"), is used on this website. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can track the actions of users after they have seen or clicked a Facebook ad. This allows us to record the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. The tracking itself is done by cookie, not via the Facebook pixel itself. It is also possible to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group ("CustomAudience") for the presentation of advertisements. Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads we place only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in the topics or products defined by us). When using Custom Audiences via the Pixel process, a direct connection is established between the user's browser and the Facebook server. Context data (e.g. redirect URL, browser information and the Facebook user ID) as well as user data are transmitted to Facebook. In addition, we cannot rule out the possibility that further Personal Data of users will be transmitted to Facebook and processed by Facebook. It is possible that Facebook assigns the visit to our website to the corresponding Facebook account and identifies the user accordingly. For us, the data collected is anonymous, which means that we do not see the Personal Data of individual users. Facebook may also use this data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with Facebook's privacy policy. You can enable Facebook and its partners to place advertisements on and outside of Facebook. Furthermore, a cookie can be stored on your computer for these purposes.

The automatically collected Personal Data will be stored for twelve months and then deleted immediately.
