Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, e-mail address, a home, postal or other physical address, other contact information, title, occupation, industry, personal interests, and other information when needed to provide a service or product or carry out a transaction you have requested.

When you browse our website, you do so anonymously, unless you have previously registered with us. We do not automatically collect personal information, including your e-mail address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have registered with us. Like many other commercial websites, the inlineVision website may use standard technologies, such as "cookies" and other HTML tools, to collect information about how you use the site or to record that you opened an e-mail marketing message. Please go to “Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies” below for more information.

Every time a user visits our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the requesting computer (or device).
The following data is collected:
– The user’s browser type and version used
– The user’s operating system
– The user’s Internet service provider (if available)
– The user’s IP address
– Date and time of access (event)
– Websites from which the user’s system reaches our website (referrer)
– Websites accessed by the user’s system through our website (links)

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

We collect personal information when you register with the company for an inlineVision account, when you use certain inlineVision products or services, when you register to attend a seminar or participate in an online survey, when you ask to be included in an e-mail or other mailing list, or when you submit an entry for a sweepstakes or other promotions, or when you submit your personal information to inlineVision for any other reason. From time to time, inlineVision receives personal information from business partners and vendors. inlineVision only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this Privacy Statement and applicable laws.

Access to certain inlineVision web pages requires a login and a password. The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those sites, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and inlineVision. Unless you request deactivation of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by inlineVision to verify compliance with the agreement, log software licenses granted, track software downloaded from those pages, or track usage of other applications available on those pages.

Notice

When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection the purpose for the collection. inlineVision will not transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent, except under the limited conditions described under the discussion entitled “Information Sharing and Disclosure” below.

In all cases we will provide you with the opportunity to “opt in” prior to receiving direct marketing or market research information. This means we will require your affirmative action to indicate your consent before we use your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted. At a minimum, we will always give you the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving such materials. This means we assume you have given us your consent to collect and use your information in accordance with this Privacy Statement unless you take affirmative action to indicate that you do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection.

Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your computer’s hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you have visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Some parts of the website use cookies to track user traffic patterns. We do this in order to determine the usefulness of our website information to our users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information.

Some inlineVision websites and HTML-formatted e-mail newsletters may use web beacons in conjunction with cookies to understand user behavior. A web beacon is an electronic image, called a single-pixel (1×1) or clear GIF. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on a visitor’s computer, such as a visitor’s cookie number, time and date of a page view, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. Some web beacons may be unusable if you elect to reject their associated cookies. inlineVision may also use customized links or other similar technologies to track e-mail links that you click. We may associate that information with your personal information in order to provide you more focused e-mail communications or purchase information. Each e-mail communication includes an unsubscribe link allowing you to stop delivery of that type of communication.

If you prefer not to receive cookies while browsing our website or via HTML-formatted e-mails, you can set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You can also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser, although you may not be able to take full advantage of the website if you do so. In particular, you may be required to accept cookies in order to complete certain actions on our website. You do not need to have cookies turned on, however, to use/navigate through many parts of our website, except access to certain of the web pages may require a login and password.

Google AdWords & Google AdWords Conversion Tracking

Our website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).

Our website uses the “Google AdWords Conversion Tracking” function of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).

Google AdWords Conversion Tracking uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website if you have clicked on a Google advert. The cookies are effective for a maximum of 90 days. Personal information is not stored in the process. For as long as the cookie is effective, Google and we as website operators can recognise that you have clicked on an advert and reached a specified target page (e.g. order confirmation page, newsletter subscription). These cookies cannot be tracked across multiple websites by different AdWords users. The cookie compiles conversion statistics in “Google AdWords”.

These statistics record the number of users who have clicked on one of our ads. They also count how many users have reached a target page that has been given a “conversion tag”. These statistics do not contain any data by which you can be identified, however.
You can prevent the storage of cookies on your hard drive and the placing of adverts by web beacons by selecting “do not accept cookies” in your browser settings (In MS Internet Explorer under “Extras > Internet Options > Data Protection > Preference”; in Firefox under “Extras > Preferences > Data Protection > Cookies”); however, deactivating cookies may limit the functionality of our website.

By using this website, you are agreeing to the processing of the data collected by Google about you in the ways described above and for the purposes also described above.

Google Adsense
Our website uses Google Adsense, a web advertisement service of Google Inc., USA (“Google”).

Google Adsense uses so-called “cookies” (text files), which are stored on your computer enabling analysis of your use of the website. Google Adsense also uses so-called “web beacons” (tiny invisible graphics) for collecting information. Through the use of web beacons, simple activities such as visitor traffic to the website are recodred and collected.

The information produced by a cookie and/or web beacon on your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website with regard to adverts, to compile reports on website activities and to put together adverts for the website operator and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the internet. Google will also transfer this information to third parties where appropriate, if this is legally required or if third parties are processing this data on behalf of Google. Google will never associate your IP address with other Google data.

You can prevent the storage of cookies on your hard drive and the placing of adverts by web beacons by selecting “do not accept cookies” in your browser settings (In MS Internet Explorer under “Extras > Internet Options > Data Protection > Preference”; in Firefox under “Extras > Preferences > Data Protection > Cookies”); however, deactivating cookies may limit the functionality of our website.

By using this website, you are agreeing to the processing of the data collected by Google about you in the ways described above and for the purposes also described above.

Google Remarketing & Targeting

Our Website uses the Remarketing or “Similar Target Groups” function of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).

This means you can be targeted with displays of personalized ads related to your interests when you visit other websites in the so-called “Google Display Network”. “Google Remarketing” or the “Similar Target Groups” function uses so-called “cookies” for this, text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. These text files record your visits and anonymized data on use of the website. They do not store personal information.

If you visit another website in the so-called “Google Display Network”, you may be shown adverts that are highly likely to take into account product and information areas that were previously called up on our website. You can prevent the “Google Remarketing” or “Similar Target Groups” functions by disallowing the storage of cookies with the appropriate setting in your browser software. However, in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website fully.

You can also prevent Google collecting and processing the data produced by the cookie and related to your use of the website by downloading and installing the browser plug-in from the following link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin?hl=en, You can also deactivate the use of cookies by third parties by calling up the deactivation pages of the Network Advertising Initiative at www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and implementing the further opt-out information cited there.

Google Tag Manager (GTM)

Google Tag Manager (“GTM”) is a tag management system to manage JavaScript and HTML tags used for tracking and analytics on websites. Tags are small code elements that, among other things, are used to measure traffic and visitor behavior: to understand the effect of online advertising and social channels; to set up remarketing and orientation towards target groups; and to test and optimize websites. GTM makes it easier for us to integrate and manage our tags. We use GTM on our website to include the following tracking tools:

● Google Analytics
● Facebook Conversion Pixels
● Twitter audiences
f you have performed deactivation, GTM takes this deactivation into account. For more information about GTM’s privacy practices can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en and terms of use at https://www.google.com/analytics/tag-manager/use-policy/.

Facebook conversion pixels

We use the “Custom Audience pixel” of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) on our website. With its help, we can keep track of what users do after they see or click on a Facebook advertisement. This enables us to monitor the effectiveness of Facebook ads for purposes of statistics and market research. Data collected in this way is anonymous to us, which means we cannot see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is saved and processed by Facebook. Facebook can connect this data with your Facebook account and use it for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s Data Policy which can be found at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. You can allow Facebook and its partners to place ads on and outside of Facebook. A cookie can also be saved on your device for these purposes.

Twitter tailored audiences

Tailored audiences is the tool of Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA, https://twitter.com (“Twitter”), used to target existing users and customers to create remarketing campaigns. Targeting activity can include directly reaching out to users or visitors to the ThoughtWorks website and campaign pages and/or retargeting previous customer lists. Twitter sets a minimum size limit for a tailored audience to 500 users. If the tailored audience does not match 500 Twitter users, it will display as “audience too small” and will not be available for targeting. Details about Twitter’s policies for conversion tracking and tailored audiences can be found at https://business.twitter.com/en/help/ads-policies/other-policy-requirements/policies-for-conversion-tracking-and-tailored-audiences.html.

The collection, storage and analysis of data and cookies stated above is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. As website operators, software developers and internet and website security consultants we have a legitimate interest in the collection and analysis of said data in order to optimize our website’s experience, analyze our website’s users’ behavior, monitor and maintain our website and infrastructure security as well as to monitor and optimize the effectiveness of our advertising efforts.
