Automatic data acquisition
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. Nevertheless, certain information about you is created and stored, as happens with almost every website these days. When you visit our website as you are doing right now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically saves data such as:
- the address (URL) of the website accessed,
- browser and browser version,
- the operating system used,
- the address (URL) of the previously visited site,
- the host name and IP address of the device from which access is made,
- information collected via cookies, web beacons and other technologies,
- date and time,
- the name of the file requested,
- volume of data transferred,
- the requesting provider,
- standard server protocol information
in files (web server log files).
Usually web server log files are stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of illegal behaviour.

According to Article 6 paragraph 1 a DSGVO (lawfulness of processing), the legal basis is that you give us your consent to process the data you have entered. You can revoke this consent at any time - an informal e-mail to [email protected] is sufficient.
Reasons for the collection of personal data
Your personal data is used to enable us to optimise the services we provide and the content provided on the website. We may decide to use your personal data for statistical purposes and to analyse your user behaviour in order to improve our services and products. Furthermore your data will be used for the following:
- Reliable provision of the online offer, its content and functions

- Replying to inquiries and communication with users
- Marketing, advertising and market research
- To detect fraud and abuse
- Security measures.
Manooal may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website and may publish or share this information with others, but will not disclose your personal information.
Retention period of your personal data
The DSGVO provides that personal data may in principle only be stored for a specific processing purpose and only for as long as necessary for the purpose in question (Art. Article 5, paragraph. 1 lit. e DSGVO). Accordingly, your personal data will be stored for different periods of time, depending on the purpose of processing:
- Data such as advertising data in server logs are automatically deleted or anonymised after a certain period of time.

We use TLS (Transport Layer Security) to transmit data tap-proof on the Internet (data protection through technology design article 25 paragraph 1 DSGVO). By using TLS, an encryption protocol for secure data transmission over the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognize the use of this data transmission security by the small lock symbol in the upper left corner of the browser and the use of the https scheme (instead of http) as part of our Internet address.
The security of your personal data is important to us. However, please note that no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure. Although we strive to protect your personal information by commercially acceptable means, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Google AdWords - Remarketing
On Google's "Advertising preferences" page, you can set preferences for how Google advertises for you. If you wish, you can deactivate interest-based advertising completely via cookie settings or permanently via a browser plugin.
On our website we use the analysis tracking tool Google Analytics (GA) of the American company Google Inc. For the European area the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. Google Analytics collects data about your actions on our website. For example, when you click on a link, this action is stored in a cookie and sent to Google Analytics. The reports we receive from Google Analytics help us better tailor our website and services to your needs. In the following we will go into more detail about the tracking tool and inform you above all about what data is stored and how you can prevent this.
Google Analytics is a tracking tool that is used for traffic analysis of our website. To make Google Analytics work, a tracking code is built into the code of our website. When you visit our website, this code records various actions that you perform on our website. As soon as you leave our website, this data is sent to the Google Analytics servers and stored there.
Google processes the data and we get reports about your user behaviour. These reports may include, inter alia, the following:
- Target group reports: Through target group reports we get to know our users better and know more precisely who is interested in our service.
- Advertisement Reports: Advertisement reports make it easier for us to analyze and improve our online advertising.
- Acquisition reports: Acquisition reports give us helpful information on how we can get more people interested in our service.
- Behavioral Reports: Here we learn how you interact with our website. We can track which path you take on our site and which links you click on.
- Conversion reports: Conversion is the name of a process in which you carry out a desired action based on a marketing message. For example, when you go from being a mere website visitor to a buyer or newsletter subscriber. With the help of these reports we learn more about how our marketing measures are received by you. This is how we want to increase our conversion rate.
- Real-time reports: Here we always know immediately what is happening on our website. For example, we see how many users are reading this text.
Our goal with this website is clear: We want to offer you the best possible service. The statistics and data from Google Analytics help us to achieve this goal.
The statistically evaluated data give us a clear picture of the strengths and weaknesses of our website. On the one hand, we can optimize our site so that interested people can find it more easily on Google. On the other hand, the data helps us to better understand you as a visitor. We therefore know exactly what we need to improve on our website in order to provide you with the best possible service. The data also helps us to carry out our advertising and marketing measures more individually and cost-effectively. After all, it only makes sense to show our products and services to people who are interested.
Google Analytics uses a tracking code to create a random, unique ID associated with your browser cookie. This way Google Analytics recognizes you as a new user. The next time you visit our site, you will be recognized as a "returning" user. All collected data is stored together with this User ID. This is the only way to evaluate pseudonymous user profiles.
Labels such as cookies and app instance IDs measure your interactions on our site. Interactions are all kinds of actions you perform on our website. If you also use other Google systems (such as B. a Google Account), data generated via Google Analytics can be linked to third-party cookies. Google does not pass on any Google Analytics data unless we as the website operator approve this. Exceptions may be made if required by law.
Google has distributed your servers around the world. Most servers are located in America and therefore your data is usually stored on American servers. Here you can find out exactly where the Google data centers are located:https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de
Your data is distributed on different physical media. This has the advantage that the data can be retrieved more quickly and is better protected against manipulation. Every Google data center has emergency programs for your data. For example, if Google's hardware fails or natural disasters paralyze servers, Google's risk of service interruption remains low.
Google Analytics has a standard retention period of 26 months for your user data. Then your user data will be deleted. However, we do have the option to choose the period of retention of user data ourselves. We have five variants available for this:
- Deletion after 14 months
- Deletion after 26 months
- Deletion after 38 months
- Deletion after 50 months
- No automatic deletion
When the specified period has expired, the data is deleted once a month. This retention period applies to your data stored with cookies, user recognition and advertising IDs (e. g. , your name, address, email address, etc. ). B. Cookies of the DoubleClick domain) are linked. Reporting results are based on aggregated data and are stored independently of user data. Aggregated data is a fusion of individual data to form a larger unit.
