Crozdesk works together with B2B Media Group Berlin GmbH ("B2B MG", formally formerly “Aumago GmbH”), Berlin, a target group marketer. B2B MG uses so-called cookies, a text file which is stored in the browser of the computer. Pseudonymous usage data is collected in the form of cookie IDs and advertising IDs. Furthermore, so-called web beacons (invisible graphics) can be used. As far as IP addresses are collected, they are stored anonymously by deleting the last number block.
B2B MG assumes an interest in a specific B2B industry or topics based on the surfing behavior of the user (e.g. visited website, categories, product pages, read content) and uses this information on behalf of Crozdesk to target specific, usage-based online advertising to these users on the internet. In this respect, the cookies can be synchronized with other technology platforms via a so-called cookie matching function. The current list of matching partners can be found under the following link and more information on the cookies can be found in Crozdesk's Cookie Declaration here.
The cookies are either B2B MG cookies or cookies from service providers that B2B MG uses such as The ADEX GmbH or B2B Media Group EMEA GmbH. The user may at any time declare their opt-out and thus object to the cookie tracking in this regard: ADEX Opt-out link, B2B Media Group Opt-out link. This will set a so-called opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie requires that a setting in the browser does not prevent the storage of cookies or delete the cookie. After deleting the opt-out cookie, the user must repeat the objection. Alternatively, the user can delete the cookies directly in the browser, set browser settings to do-not-track from the beginning or manage their cookie preferences here. If you wish to obtain information about the information stored in your cookie, either send us your cookie ID or send it to B2B Media Group Berlin GmbH, Savignyplatz 9/10, 10623 Berlin or to [email protected].
