  4. Cookies and tracking technologies

    KIND Hearing uses cookies only for the provision of information about utilisation of our website and for statistical purposes.

    Most browsers are set automatically to accept cookies. If wished, you can however configure your browser by editing your browser settings so that cookies are restricted or blocked altogether. Detailed information on how to do this on a large number of browsers can be found on the following websites: youronlinechoices, Network Advertising Initiative and/or Digital Advertising Alliance. Here you can also find out how to delete cookies from your computer as well as general information about cookies.

    To find out how to select these settings on the browser of your mobile phone, please consult the operating instructions for your mobile.

    See below for a list of service providers who are authorised to set cookies on our website and how to disallow this.

    a. Google Analytics: This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

    Alternatively for a browser plug-in or in browsers on mobile devices, please click on the following link to set an opt-out cookie that will in future prevent registration by Google Analytics on this website (this opt-out cookie will only function in this browser and only for this domain; in case you deleted your cookies in this browser, you must click on this link again to opt out): Disable Google Analytics.

    We should like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()", and that IP addresses therefore only undergo further processing in shortened form so they cannot be directly linked to any specific individual.

    Further information about terms of use and data protection can be found under www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/.

    b. Additional Google advertising functions in use: Besides the standard version of Google Analytics we also use Google Analytics Demographics and Interests reports. To this end Google makes use of any DoubleClick cookie set on your computer by Google. We are thus provided by Google e.g. with reports indicating which visitor groups (interest categories, age groups) with what interests visit our website. We make use of this information to cater for our target group more closely. We are not able to identify you in person from these reports.

    By using our website, you consent to such utilisation of data in the framework of Google Analytics (Demographics and Interests reports). You can prevent your visit from being included in our reports by objecting to tracking by Google Analytics as described above. Information on how Google uses data, and how you can object to and control the utilisation of data can also be found in the details about data usage by Google with the utilisation of web pages by Google Partners.
