If your objection is valid, we will assess the situation and either cease or modify the data processing or present the compelling legitimate grounds on which we will continue processing the data.
Cookies are utilized to collect textual information during an online session. The user's browser determines the storage location of the cookie on the user's hard drive. During the next online visit, cookies relay information back to a server and can only be read by the server that initially saved them.
Toys.business, its designated service providers, and third-party providers only employ cookies for essential user functions, facilitating website navigation, and collecting marketing statistics.
You can decide which cookies you want stored on your system through the cookie consent banner at any time. Once you have made your selection, you can modify your consent as needed. Please refer to the website's information for this purpose.
You cannot deselect essential user functions controlled by cookies, as it would severely limit the website's usability or redirect websites like the cloud-based toy exhibition platform, resulting in restricted or non-functional website access.
Most browsers accept cookies by default, but this feature can be disabled in your browser at any time. You can set your browser to notify you when cookies are sent.
When you visit our websites to browse, read, or download information, we collect and store some "user information" about you, such as a unique ID, the domain and host name from which you access the internet, your computer's Internet Protocol (IP) address, the date and time you accessed the website, and the web address of the site from which you directly linked to our website and platform. We use this information to log visits and recognize returning visitors, allowing us to make our websites more valuable.
We use a consent management platform from third-party service providers for our web presence, enabling you to control which cookies can be stored on your system.
We distinguish between the following categories:
Essential: These cookies are crucial for the website's operation, including User Centrics. If you do not agree to store these cookies, you cannot use the website.
Functional: These cookies improve website convenience or provide certain services, such as enabling YouTube video playback.
Marketing: These cookies serve marketing purposes, such as analyzing user patterns and enhancing the information available on the website.
If you accept the Functional and Marketing category cookies, they are stored on your system. However, you can opt-out of their use at any time by preventing storage.
Our websites use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google").
You may prevent cookies being stored by adjusting your browser software appropriately; however, please note that you may not then have full use of all of the features of these websites. You may also prevent the data generated by a cookie based on your usage of the websites (including your IP address) being collected and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available here.
Please note that these websites use Google Analytics with the code extension "anonymizeIp" in order to ensure the anonymised collection of IP addresses ("IP masking").
As a Google Ads customer, we use Google Conversion Tracking, an analytics service provided by Google Ireland, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). Google Ads sets a conversion cookie on your computer if you click on a Google ad and are taken to one of our websites. This cookie expires after 30 days and does not serve to identify individuals. If you visit certain pages of our web presence and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that the ad has been clicked and the user was redirected to our site.
Each Google Ads customer is given a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Google Ads customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Google Ads customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you wish to opt-out of this tracking, you can also reject the cookie that has to be set for this – for instance, by generally disabling the automatic setting of cookies in your browser settings. You can also disable conversion tracking cookies by adjusting your browser settings so that cookies from the "googleadservices.com" domain are blocked. Or you can choose the appropriate settings in the cookie consent banner.
We also use Google AdSense, a web advertisement service provided by Google Ireland, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google") to place advertisements (text ads, banners, etc.). Your browser may save a cookie sent by Google or third parties for this. The information stored in the cookie may be recorded, collected and analysed by Google or a third party.
Furthermore, Google AdSense also uses small invisible graphics to collect information which allow for simple actions such as visitor traffic to the website to be recorded, collected and analysed. The information generated by the cookie and/or graphics about your use of these websites is transferred to and stored on a Google server in the US. Google uses the information thus obtained to analyse your usage patterns with regard to Google AdSense ads. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on behalf of Google. Google does not associate your IP address with other data stored by Google. You may prevent cookies from being stored on your hard drive and the aforementioned graphics from being displayed. As for the other cookies described, the same applies here: you will need to disable cookies in your browser settings for this.
We use remarketing technology provided by Google Ireland, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). This technology is used to retarget users that have previously visited our websites and online services and showed interest in our offering by means of targeted advertising on sites within the Google Partner network. The advertising is shown by using cookies, which are small text files stored on the user’s computer. The text files help analyse user behaviour when the websites are visited for the purposes of targeted product recommendations and interest-based advertising.
Various pages on site contain embedded YouTube videos. The site only enables a connection to YouTube. YouTube is a service provided by Google Inc. (our contractual partner is: Google Ireland, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland).
Our web presence may use social plugins ("plugins") of the social network twitter.com, which is provided by Twitter International Company, One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street, Dublin 2, D02 AX07, Ireland ("Twitter"). The plugins are marked with a Twitter logo.
If you access a Spielwarenmesse website containing such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Twitter’s servers. The plugin content is sent by Twitter directly to your browser, which integrates it into the website.
The integration of the plugins tells Twitter that you have accessed the relevant page of our web presence. If you are logged into Twitter, Twitter can assign the visit to your Twitter account. If you interact with the plugins, such as by sharing a tweet, your browser sends the corresponding information directly to Twitter, where it is stored.
Please refer to the Twitter Data Policy for information about the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Twitter as well as your related rights and settings that may be used to protect your privacy.
If you do not want Twitter to gather data about you via our web presence, you will need to log out of Twitter before visiting our web presence.
Plugins of the LinkedIn social network provided by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "LinkedIn"), are integrated into our websites.
The LinkedIn plugins are identifiable by the LinkedIn logo or Recommend button on our websites.
When you visit our websites, a direct connection is established between your browser and the LinkedIn server by means of the plugin. This tells LinkedIn that you have visited one of our sites using your IP address.
We use the analysis and conversion tracking technology of the LinkedIn platform provided by LinkedIn Ireland, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2 (Ireland) on our website. This LinkedIn technology allows more relevant ads to be shown based on your interests. LinkedIn also provides us with aggregated and anonymous reports on advertising activities and information on how you interact with our website.
The information gathered with the help of the cookie is used to create the anonymous statistics and reports referred to above and to display ads based on your interests.
For more information on data protection at LinkedIn, please see here. Irrespective of whether or not you are a registered member of the LinkedIn platform, you can opt out from analysis of your user behaviour by LinkedIn and the display of interest-based recommendations by clicking on "Opt Out on LinkedIn" (for LinkedIn members) or "Opt Out" (for other users) at the following link: www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out.
Please note that rejecting such advertising will not remove ads from the pages you visit. It simply means that the ads shown will not necessarily be tailored to your personal interests.
Special conditions for the use of surveys:
To optimize our services, we occasionally invite you to participate in targeted, group-specific surveys. We use a survey tool to conduct these surveys. Participation in the surveys is voluntary and generally anonymous. For specific questions, we offer you the opportunity to provide your contact details. It is your choice to provide this information and share it with us alongside your responses.
A technical cookie is set for each survey. This is necessary to prevent multiple participations by utilizing a cookie block.
