This policy applies to the CSI Marketer operation and to the websites available at http://www.csi.co.za. Please take into consideration that this refers to other websites, including those of other countries, for which different data protection rules may apply.

Cookies and web tracking
Our websites use so-called cookies, which are small text files that are stored on your computer, and can be accessed there again. Cookies enable you to register for our services and help us to personalise the website for you.

You can also use part of our website without needing to register or log in. Even if you don't log in to the website, we will still record certain information automatically so that we can collate statistical data on how our website is used and how efficient it is, in a bid to adjust it to our users' needs. We will therefore collect and process information on your IP address, the time and length of your visit, the number of visits you make, which forms you use, your search settings, your display settings and your Favourites settings on our website. Different cookies are stored for different lengths of time. The majority of the cookies we use are automatically deleted when you leave our website (the so-called "session-cookies"). We log every access to our website and every download of files from the website. The cookies on our websites are used exclusively for information purposes.

We use JavaScript to track your user behaviour on our website to be able to tailor our web services to the needs of our users. We determine your browser type, location, time and duration of your use, URL and page name, as well as the referring website. You can refuse the collection of this data by deactivating JavaScript directly from your web browser.

We also use the following tools: Google Analytics
This is a web analytics tool from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, herein after referred to as "Google", to log your online activity on our website, to find out how many users visit us online, what page content they view and how often. This process is anonymous. Google Analytics' cookies – including the Google Analytics Tool "Anonymous IP Address" and usage data – are typically sent to a Google server in the United States and stored there. For further information, please refer to https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de. To stop your data from being logged, please visit Google Analytics at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Google AdWords
This is used to record website visits for advertising purposes (re-marketing) on Google and in the Display Network. When you visit the site, your browser saves cookies which make it possible to recognise you as a visitor when you visit other websites belonging to Google's advertising network. On these pages, visitors can then be presented with advertisements referring to the content they have previously viewed on other websites using Google's re-marketing feature. You can reject Google AdWords' tracking at http://www.google.com/settings/ads.

Conversion Tracking by Google AdWords
This is how we create conversion statistics that measure the effectiveness of our online advertising campaigns. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad served by Google. According to Google's privacy policy, no personally identifiable information is processed. If you do not want to be tracked, you can disable the Google Conversion tracking cookie through your Internet browser's internet settings.

Conversion measurement with Facebook's visitor action conversion pixel
We use the "Facebook-Pixel" by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook") within our website with your consent. This is a cookie, a small text file that is stored on your computer and can be retrieved there. It can be used to track users' actions after they have viewed or clicked on a Facebook ad. This enables us to track the effectiveness of Facebook advertising for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous for us, so it does not allow us to conclude the identity of users. However, the Facebook data is stored and processed so that a connection to the respective user profile can be made, and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, according to the Facebook Data Usage Guideline (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). You can enable Facebook and its partners to place advertising on and outside of Facebook. A cookie for these purposes can also be stored on your computer. By using the website, you agree to the use of the visitor action pixel.

You can revoke your consent to the use of the visitor action pixel at any time. You must inform us in writing (by post or e-mail) of your wish to withdraw consent using the following address [email protected]
