Third Party Links
Our Website partly uses so-called cookies. Cookies serve the purpose of making our service more user-friendly, more effective and safer. A cookie is a small amount of information that a website you visit stores on your computer or device. Most of the cookies we use are so-called session cookies. After the end of the session these cookies will be deleted automatically. The session cookies are used in order to associate successive page requests with the individual users, who at the same time access our Website. Other cookies will be stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit.
You can adjust your browser to notify you, before you receive a cookie or to decide to accept cookies on a case-by-case basis, to completely or partly exclude all incoming cookies and to activate the deletion of cookies automatically when the browser is closed.
We would like to inform you that the usage and especially the convenience of usage without using any cookies may be limited. In the event personal data are processed such processing is based on Art. 6 (1) f. GDPR with the legitimate interest of quality assurance.
Our Partners and Service Providers
Plyvie relies on a number of other companies, agents, and/or contractors to perform services on our behalf and to assist us in operating and providing the Services to you. For example, we may engage such service providers to provide marketing, communications, website hosting, infrastructure and IT services, to personalize and optimize the Services, provide customer service, collect debts, and analyze and enhance data. In the course of providing such services to us, these companies may obtain information about you, including personal information, and that information will be shared with us. We do not authorize these companies to use or disclose your personal information except in connection with providing the services we request from them.

Google Tag Manager
Google Adwords Conversion
If you choose an ad-served ad, a cookie will be placed for conversion tracking. The cookies used in the context of conversion tracking lose their validity after 30 days, contain no personal data and do not serve for personal identification. If the website is visited before the end of the deadline, the cookie can be used to refer to the redirection to the website of the provider (especially when an advertisement is called). Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The information that the conversion cookie collects generates conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have chosen conversion tracking.
In this case, AdWords customers (like Plyvie) are particularly aware of the total number of users who have viewed their ad and have been redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that allows users to be personally identified.
Users who do not want to participate in the tracking process can generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies in the browser settings.
You can also block specific cookies for conversion tracking by modifying the browser settings to prevent cookies from the googleadservices.com domain from being allowed.
On our website we use the FullStory service provided by Fullstory Inc. (818 Marietta Street, Atlanta, GA 30318, USA). FullStory is an analysis service that records user behavior on our website. These visitor session records allow us to evaluate them and then improve the website experience for visitors. FullStory stores and collects data anonymously using cookies. Legal basis for data processing in the context of the use of FullStory is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO based on our legitimate interest in the user-friendly design of our website.

Facebook (Visitor Action PIXEL)
We use the “visitor action pixels” from Facebook Inc (1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or, if you are based in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”)) on our website.
This allows user behavior to be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This enables us to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, i.e. we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, which is why we are informing you, based on our knowledge of the situation. Facebook may link this information to your Facebook account and also use it for its own promotional purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s Data Usage Policy https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. You can allow Facebook and its partners to place ads on and off Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes.
The legal basis for the use of this service is Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f GDPR. You can object to the collection of your data by Facebook pixel, or to the use of your data for the purpose of displaying Facebook ads by contacting the following address:
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus guarantees compliance with European data protection legislation
