Use of cookies

Cookies to improve the functionality of our websites
Among other things, we use cookies to better understand how our websites are used and to improve their attractiveness, content and functionality. Cookies help us, for example, to determine which subpages of our website are visited and what content users are interested in. For this purpose we use Flash cookies and loading time optimization cookies. In particular, these so-called first party cookies record the number of visits to a page, the number of sub-pages viewed, the time spent on our websites, the sequence of pages visited, which search terms have led you to us, the country, region and, if applicable, city from which access is made, which operating system and which Internet browser with which language setting you use, as well as the proportion of mobile terminals that access our websites. We also capture movement, clicks and scrolling with the computer mouse to understand which areas of our site are of particular interest to visitors. The IP address of your computer transmitted for technical reasons is automatically anonymised and does not allow us to draw any conclusions about you.

Cookies for use-based online advertising

We also reserve the right to use information that we have obtained by means of cookies from an analysis of the usage behaviour of visitors to our websites in order to display specific advertising for certain of our products on our own websites. We believe that you as a user will benefit from this because we display advertisements or content that we believe, based on your browsing habits, are appropriate to your interests and you will therefore see less randomly scattered advertisements or certain content that is less likely to interest you.

Please note that cookies do not damage your device (PC, Smartphone, Tablet). The cookies we use do not store any personal data that identifies the user. The encrypted information obtained in this way is only used to improve the quality of your navigation on our website. For example, these can be helpful in identifying and fixing errors on the website. Furthermore, we have the possibility to suggest further interesting and possibly relevant products to the visitor of the website.

We provide this information in full compliance with current legislation. Furthermore, we guarantee our integrity and transparency with regard to your privacy while using our website. We are constantly working to improve our site in terms of cookies and privacy.

More information about cookies can be found on the following websites: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/ and http://www.youronlinechoices.eu/.

Cookies can perform several tasks: efficiently navigate between pages, recognize preferences, and enhance the navigation experience on the page.

The convention.group reserves the right, subject to the user's consent, to use cookies where required by law or applicable policy to facilitate navigation of the site and to personalize the information provided. The convention.group also reserves the right to use similar systems to collect information from website users, such as IP address, web browser and operating system used and/or websites visited by the user, for statistical or security purposes. The convention. group is authorized to collect this information in order to improve the use of the website and other aspects. The information below provides a brief overview of how convention.group uses cookies and similar tools.

Cookies to navigate

These cookies are essential to move around the site and to use features such as blocked areas of the site.

Cookies that are absolutely necessary are used to store the unique characteristics of a user and thus to distinguish him from all other visitors to the website and to be able to offer the user a service of constant quality.

Performance Cookies

These cookies may be from third parties or temporary or permanent. Their use is limited to the performance and improvement of website features. These cookies collect information about the behaviour of the visitor to the website, e. g. which pages he has visited. These cookies do not collect any information that can identify you. All information collected by these cookies is generated anonymously and used only to improve the functionality of the site.

Functional Cookies

These cookies can be from www.conventiongroup.at – or third parties or temporary or permanent. These cookies are usually created by an action of the user. However, they can also be built in if you offer the user a specific service that he has not specifically requested. They can also be used to prevent a user from being offered an already offered and rejected service again. In addition, these cookies enable the website to remember a choice made by the user (e. g. username, language, country of origin, etc.). This information collected by the cookies is anonymous and cannot collect the user behavior on other websites.

This could be, for example:

  • Remember the settings that the user has set for a website; e. g. layout, font size, preferences, colors, etc.
  • Remember a selection you made, so users don't have to fill out another questionnaire.
  • Detect if a service has already been offered; e. g. a tutorial has already been offered during a previous visit to the website.
  • Provide information providing access to an optional service - e. g. Live Chat Session
  • To make a user request, e. g. submit a comment

Third Party Cookies used by us

(1) Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (Google). Google Analytics uses a specific form of cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code gat._anonymizeIp(); in order to guarantee an anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-called IP-Masking). By making your IP address anonymous on this website, Google will shorten your IP address within the territory of the EU or the contracting states of the European Economic Community. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of this website, compile reports on website activity and provide other services to the website operator relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. You can prevent the cookies from being saved by making the appropriate settings in your browser software, see above paragraph 7.c. You can also prevent the transmission to Google of the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the link http://tools. google. com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl.

(2) Google Adwords
This website uses Google AdWords, an analysis service provided by Google, and conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords. Google AdWords stores a conversion tracking cookie on your computer's hard drive (a so-called conversion cookie) when you click on an ad placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our site, Google and we may recognize that you clicked on the ad and were directed to that page. The information obtained through Conversion Cookies is used to generate statistics for AdWords customers who use Conversion Tracking. These statistics tell us the total number of users who clicked on the Google ad and visited a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not obtain any information that would personally identify users. We cannot assign the data obtained to specific users.
In addition to Conversion Tracking we also use the following functions

  • remarketing
  • Target groups with common interests
  • user-defined target groups with common interests
  • ready-buying target groups
  • similar target groups
  • demographic and geographical orientation

With Google's remarketing function, we reach users who have already visited our website. This enables us to present our advertising to target groups that are already interested in our products or services. AdWords also determines which common interests and characteristics users of our site share based on user behavior on sites on Google's ad network over the past 30 days (display network) and the contextual search engine. On the basis of this information, AdWords then finds new potential customers for marketing purposes whose interests and characteristics are similar to those of the users of our website. Target group-specific remarketing is achieved through the combined use of cookies, such as Google Analytics cookies and Google DoubleClick cookies.
