Cookie Policy

Our Cookie Policy informs you about the use of cookies at a.auftrag.at, login.auftrag.at and suche.auftrag.at.
If you have any further questions about cookies, please contact us at datenschutz@auftrag.at or write to Wiener Zeitung Digitale Publikationen GmbH, MQM 3.3, Maria-Jacobi-Gasse 1, 1030 Vienna. Further information on data protection can be found in our Privacy Policy.

Cookies are text files that are stored on your device

Cookies are small text files that are stored via the browser on a storage medium of the end device used by the website visitor (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.). A browser is a programme for displaying websites. The stored information is retrieved during subsequent visits to the website and enables the website to recognise the end device.

Differentiating between cookies according to technical necessity

In general, a distinction is made between technically required and technically inessential cookies.

Cookies that are essential to the functionality of our website

Technically necessary cookies ensure the functionality of our website and are essential to its operation. No consent by the website visitor is required for these technically necessary cookies.

Cookies that are technically non-essential but improve the website experience for customers, and that enable targeted advertising

Technically non-essential cookies are cookies that are not required for the operation of the website, for example analysis cookies and advertising cookies. Analytics cookies can be used to measure

This makes it easier for us to further develop and improve our website because we can identify at an early stage which areas are of particular interest to website visitors and where there is room for improvement. Based on the data collected, we can better structure the website menus and place content in a more user-friendly way.

Through the use of advertising cookies, website visitors or users can be presented with target group oriented, personalised advertising. Personalised or targeted advertising is advertising whose content is tailored to the interests of the website visitor or user, particularly with regard to demographic data, such as age and gender.

By analysing the website, it is possible to check which content is likely to be of interest to the website visitor.
Remarketing campaigns can be used to display target group oriented or personalised advertisements on different channels.
Target group oriented or personalised advertisements in the form of remarketing are only permitted where consent has been granted ("Advertising cookies" and "Accept all cookies") in the cookie banner.

Use of Google Analytics or Google services (Google Tag Manager)

Technically inessential cookies originate, among others, from the website analysis provider Google, based in the United States (Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). According to a decision by the ECJ, the USA does not guarantee a sufficient level of data protection. Information on the data protection of the web analysis provider can be found on the company's website (https://policies.google.com/privacy).

Profiling is done in connection with Google services. Data subjects have the right to object to profiling activities.
The cookies set by the website analysis provider where consent was granted generate an anonymous identifier that enables the website visitor to be recognised on subsequent website visits. The recorded data is stored with the anonymous identifier, which enables the evaluation of user profiles.

When using the service provider's cookies, the IP address is anonymised. This makes it impossible to draw conclusions about the identity of the website visitor.
In respect of advertisements on third-party websites, personalised advertising proceeds on the basis of the website visitor's consent to advertising cookies, by storing files in the website visitor's end device from which information can be read. In this way, previously visited websites can be derived and targeted advertising for these websites can be shown on other websites. The processing of personal data (IP address in abbreviated or anonymised form, data on the website visitor’s end device) takes place in a way that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about the identity of the natural person.

The display of these advertisements on third-party websites can be prevented by the website visitor clicking the appropriate settings on their end device to disallow cookies from third-party providers.

Use of Hotjar or services from Hotjar

Technically inessential cookies originate, among others, from the website analytics provider Hotjar Limited, based in Malta (Hotjar Limited, Dragonara Business Centre, 5th Floor, Dragonara Road, Paceville St Julian's STJ 3141, Malta).

If consent is given, Hotjar works with cookies and other technologies to collect data about the behaviour of website visitors and their end devices, in particular the IP address of the device (collected and stored in anonymised form during website use), screen size, device type (Unique Device Identifiers), information about the browser used, location (country only) and language preferred for viewing the above websites.

Hotjar stores this information on our behalf in a pseudonymised user profile. Hotjar is contractually prohibited from selling the data collected on our behalf.
The processing of personal data (IP address in abbreviated or anonymised form, data on the website visitor’s end device) takes place in a way that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about the identity of the natural person.

Consent to analysis cookies and advertising cookies ("Accept all cookies")

In order for us to use cookies that are not technically required, we require the consent of the website visitor. Consent also refers to the processing of personal data by service providers in the USA. According to a decision by the ECJ, the USA does not guarantee a sufficient level of data protection.

As soon as the website visitor enters the website, a banner appears requesting consent to use analysis cookies, as well as to advertising cookies. The website visitor can give their consent to analysis and advertising cookies by clicking on the "Accept all cookies" button or refuse their consent by clicking on the "Save selection" button to accept only technically required cookies.

If you only wish to give your consent to analysis cookies, you must select "Analysis cookies" and give your consent by clicking on "Save selection". If you only wish to agree to the use of advertising cookies, select "Advertising cookies" and then click "Save selection" to give your consent.

Advertisements for a.auftrag.at on other websites will only be shown if the website visitor has consented to advertising cookies. From a technical point of view, some of the analysis cookies listed under "Cookies used" have a dual function as advertising cookies, but advertising is only displayed if the website visitor has also given consent to advertising cookies.

Processed data

When visiting the website, the following data is processed if consent to analysis cookies and advertising cookies has been given:

Where consent has been given to advertising cookies, data on the website visitor's end device and IP address are processed in anonymised form. Analysis cookies are sometimes reused for advertising activities on other channels after the website was visited.

This only takes place if the website visitor has given consent to advertising cookies in the cookie banner. Based on the information stored with the aid of cookies, the device is recognised and advertisements for the auftrag.at homepage subsequently appear on Google websites.

Demographic data is collected via data exchanged during technical communication between server and client. Information on gender and personal interests is registered and stored via text files that are stored on the website visitor’s end device. Demographic data are, for example, age, gender, the website visitor’s interests, the language of the website visitor or a country classification.

This data is collected to gain insights into the target group of a website or to define an imagined group of people as a target group based on the results.
The purpose of processing demographic data is to align the offer to the respective target group, as well as business analysis and performance reports.

Storage period

The data processed with the aid of the analysis cookies is stored for six (Google) or twelve months (Hotjar). Data processed with the aid of advertising cookies are stored for six months. After that, they are deleted and website visitors are asked to consent to cookies again.

Advertisements shown where consent to advertising cookies was given may still be displayed on third-party websites after six months, for a period of 24 months, even if consent to advertising cookies was revoked on the auftrag.at homepage in the meantime.

Technical background information in the event of consent

If consent is given, a so-called tracking code is executed, which sets several cookies in the browser of the website visitor's end device. These cookies are used to determine the website visitor's activities on the website.
For example, a session cookie records how long a website visitor stays on the website, and recognition cookies determine whether the website visitor is new to the website. With the aid of a cookie that enables recognition, advertisements are subsequently also shown on a third-party website.

The consent of the website visitor forms the exclusive legal basis for the use of analysis and advertising cookies. Consent also refers to the processing of data in the USA. If consent has not been given (confirmation of technically required cookies by means of "Save selection"), no analysis and advertising cookies are used. In addition, the website can be used without consent.

Linking any further personal data with the IP address is not generally possible with the use of analysis cookies. Linking further personal data may occur in the event of consent to advertising cookies in the cookie banner, when website visitors receive advertisements for a.auftrag.at on third-party websites.

Revocation of consent to analysis cookies and advertising cookies

Consent to analysis and advertising cookies can be revoked at any time by clicking on the "Cookie settings" link in the footer of the auftrag.at homepage, which opens the cookie banner. If only technically necessary cookies are confirmed in the cookie banner by clicking on the "Save selection" button, this will revoke consent to analysis and advertising cookies.

Profiling

Profiling takes place in connection with some technically inessential cookies. "Profiling" refers to the automated processing of personal data, taking into account personal aspects, in particular to analyse or predict these aspects, for example in relation to personal preferences, interests or behaviour on the website.

Profiling is often used to make predictions about people by using data from different sources to draw conclusions about a person based on the characteristics of other, statistically similar people.
Since data is available on the internet and connections and links can be made technically, personal aspects or people's behaviour as well as their interests and habits can be determined, analysed and predicted.

Profiling measures can be of considerable benefit to an organisation because it enables an increase in efficiency and saves resources. Applications of profiling measures include better segmentation of markets as well as targeting services and products to the individual needs of the population.
Profiling activities may occur in relation to the analysis of websites and the use of third-party marketing services. Website visitors are not obliged to provide data for profiling purposes.

Persons affected by profiling measures have the right to object to this processing, and can exercise this right at any time. Profiling for advertising purposes can be refused without giving any reasons.
The data categories used for profiling are mostly based on the click behaviour of the website visitor (preferences and interests can be derived from this), on reading information from files stored in the end device, and on the IP address of the website visitor.

Data subject rights

Persons affected by the processing of personal data have the following rights:

When cookies are used, the data processed (e.g. IP address in anonymised form) generally does not allow the identity of the website visitor to be attributed, which is why a data subject's request either cannot be complied with or can only be complied with to a limited extent.

Website visitors have the option to revoke their consent to analysis and advertising cookies by clicking on the "Cookie settings" button at the bottom of the website (on the bar next to "Imprint"). Using the "Save selection" button in the cookie banner, consent can be revised by confirming only technically required cookies.

You can find further information on data protection at Privacy Policy of a.auftrag.at.

Changes to this Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy will be revised as necessary. The processing of personal data is subject to the current version of the policy.

This Cookie Policy was last updated in November 2021.
