This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.Team Farner can no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless compelling legitimate grounds for the processing can be demonstrated which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

12 Collection, processing and use of personal data
12.1 Personal data
Personal data is information about the factual or personal circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your name and your email address.
12.2 Use of your data for marketing purposes
Besides using your data for sending out newsletters, we may also use your information to display personalised advertising to you.You can object at any time to the use of your personal data for marketing purposes. Please send your objection to firstname.lastname@example.org.
12.2.1 Personalised advertising for you
The information we receive from you helps us to continually improve your service experience and structure it in a customer-friendly manner that is personalised for you. The information you have submitted and automatically generated will be used to personalise advertising for you and your interests. For this purpose we use existing information, such as delivery and read receipts of emails, information on a computer and connection to the internet, operating system and platform, your service history, the date and time of a visit to the homepage, articles, topics and content you have viewed.
We use this information exclusively in pseudonymised form. By analysing and evaluating this information, we are able to improve our web pages and our internet offering, and send you personalised advertising. This is advertising that recommends services that you might actually be interested in. Our goal is to make our advertising more useful and interesting for you. Therefore, the evaluation and analysis of the pseudonymised data collected from you helps us to avoid sending you random advertising but rather advertising, such as newsletters and service recommendations, that actually meet your areas of interest. For example, we will determine which of our promotional emails you open to avoid sending unnecessary emails to you.If you do not wish to receive any personalised advertising, you can object at any time. Please send your objection to email@example.com.
12.2.2 Competitions, market and opinion research

Your responses to surveys will not be forwarded to third parties or published.

Please send your objection to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are basically two different types of cookie: session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and temporary/permanent cookies, which are stored on your data carrier for a longer period or without limit. This type of storage helps us to design our web pages and our offers with you in mind and makes it easier for you to use these pages. For example, certain input from you can be stored so that you are not required to enter this repeatedly.
13.2 What types of cookies does Team Farner use?
13.3 What data is stored in the cookies?
Only pseudonymous data is stored in the cookies used by Team Farner. The cookie is allocated an identification number when it is activated. Your personal data is not allocated to this identification number. Your name, your IP address and other such data that might allow the cookie to be traced to you directly are not placed in the cookie. We receive only pseudonymised information on the basis of the cookie technology, relating, for example, to which of our pages have been visited, what services, articles or cases have been viewed, etc.
13.4 What is onsite targeting?
The Team Farner website uses cookie technology to collect data to optimise our advertising and entire online offering. This data is not used to identify you personally, but only to conduct a pseudonymous evaluation of how the homepage is used. Your data will at no time be combined with the personal data stored with us.With this technology we can provide you with advertising and/or special offers and services whose content is based on the connection with the information obtained in the clickstream analysis (for example, advertising based exclusively on the content viewed in the past few days on topics such as digital marketing or media relations).Our objective here is to make our online range as attractive for you as possible and show you advertising which corresponds to your areas of interest.
13.5 Are third party cookies also used?
Team Farner uses some advertising partners that help make the internet offering and our website more interesting for you. Therefore, when visiting the website, cookies of partner companies are stored on your hard drive. These are temporary/permanent cookies that are automatically deleted after a specified period of time. These temporary and permanent cookies (lifespan of 14 days to 10 years) will be stored on your hard drive and delete themselves after a specified period of time.The cookies of our partner companies only contain pseudonyms, mostly anonymous data. This is, for example, data about what products you have viewed, if something was purchased, what products you looked for, etc. Some of our advertising partners record information via the web pages about which pages you have visited before or which products you are interested in for example in order to show you advertising best suited to your interests. This pseudonymous data is not combined with your personal data at any time. It is only used to allow our advertising partners to show you advertising you might actually be interested in.
14 Log files
Each time you access Team Farner’s web pages, usage data is transmitted by the respective internet browser and stored in server log files. The stored data records contain the following data: the date and time of access, the name of the page accessed, IP address, referrer URL (original URL from which you arrived at the web pages), the amount of data transferred, and the product and version information of the browser used.The IP addresses of users are deleted or anonymised when you end your session on the website. When anonymising, IP addresses are modified so that the individual details about persons or factual circumstances can no longer be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person or only if a significantly large amount of time, cost and labour is expended.We evaluate these log file data records in an anonymous form in order to further improve our offering and make it more user-friendly, to find and correct errors more quickly and to manage server capacity. For example, we can determine what times the Team Farner website is especially popular and make the relevant data volume available to ensure you can make a purchase as quickly as possible. We can also identify and correct any errors on the Team Farner website more quickly by analysing the log files. These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in data processing.

In addition, we show you how you can prevent these services from analysing your usage behaviour on our website. If we ask you for your consent to the use of third-party services, the legal basis for this form of data processing is your consent.

16 Social plugins
Our website uses social plugins from different social networks. With the help of these plugins, you can, for example, share content or recommend products to other persons. The plugins are enabled by default on farner.ch.The content of the plugin is transmitted from the social network directly to your browser, and incorporated by the latter into the web pages. By incorporating the plugin, the social network receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into a social network, the latter can assign your visit to your account. If you interact with the plugins, for example, by clicking the Facebook “like” button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to the social network and stored there.Even if you are not logged into social networks, data can be sent from websites with active social plugins to the networks. Because of an active plugin, every time the website is accessed a cookie with an identifier is stored. Since your browser will send this cookie every time you connect to a network server without being requested, the network can theoretically create a profile of which web pages the user associated with the identifier has accessed. In some cases, it would then be possible to allocate this identifier to a person once again at a later point, for instance, when subsequently logging in to the social network.If you do not want social networks to collect data about you via active plugins, you can select the “block third party cookies” function in your browser settings. Your browser will then send no cookies to the relevant server of the social network. With this setting, however, the plugins will no longer work, nor will, in certain cases, other site-wide features of other providers.You can find further information about the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of your personal data in the data protection policies of the respective networks. There you will also find more extensive information about your rights in this respect and the settings options to protect your privacy, as well as about your right to object to the creation of user profiles.On our website, we currently use the following plugins of the following social networks:16.1 FacebookWe use plugins of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Avenue, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or, if you habitually reside in the European Economic Area (EEA) or in Switzerland, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).
