What are Cookies?

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive or mobile device by your web browser (if you allow) that enable the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. These cookies can save your settings on a website and are used to deliver a more efficient and enjoyable website experience by storing information about how you use the website. For example, storing information on the pages you visited which allows for suggesting related content based on a previous visit.

There are two types of cookies:

  1. First-party cookies which are set by the website you are visiting and
  2. Third-party cookies which come from other websites e.g. ads embedded on a page using Google services.

Are Cookies harmful?

Cookies cannot access any information on your computer other than the information you have openly disclosed to the website which sent the cookies to your computer. Cookies can’t be executed as code and as such cannot distribute malware.

What types of cookies do we use?

We only use first-party cookies but also use some third-party website tools which use cookies in different ways. Third party tools on this website:

Google Analytics: We use Google Analytics to measure how users interact with website content. These cookies do not collect personal information about visitors and use an anonymous identifier to distinguish visitors. Google Analytics helps website owners to measure how users interact with website content. As a user navigates between web pages, Google Analytics provides website owners JavaScript tags (libraries) to record information about the page a user has seen, for example, the URL of the page. The Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use HTTP Cookies to “remember” what a user has done on previous pages/ interactions with the website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of the websites (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. See more on how Google Analytics uses cookies.

Other Google services: External typefaces from Google, LLC., Google Fonts. Google Fonts are embedded by accessing a Google server (usually in the USA). Privacy Policy, Opt-out.

Maps from the “Google Maps” service from the third-party provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy Policy, Opt-out.

Online presence on social media

We maintain an online presence on social media networks and platforms to communicate with our customers, prospective customers, and users active on them and to enable us to give them information on our services. The relevant providers’ terms and conditions and data processing guidelines apply when using these networks and platforms.

Facebook Fanpage

AgileTDAsia Fanpage

Trendig uses the technical platform and services of Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbort, Dublin 2, Ireland for this information service. We would like to point out that you use this Facebook page and its functions at your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). Alternatively, you can also call up the information offered via this page on our website at [https://trendig.com]. When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects information such as your IP address and other information that is available on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us with statistical information about the use of the Facebook Page. Facebook provides further information on this under the following link: Facevook Insights. The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. Facebook describes in general terms what information it receives and how it is used in its data use guidelines. There you will also find information about contact options for Facebook as well as the setting options for advertisements. The Data Usage Guidelines are available at the following link: Facebook Data Usage Guidelines. Facebook’s complete privacy policy can be found at Facebook Privacy Policy. Facebook does not conclusively and clearly state how Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties. This is not known to us. When accessing a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your user device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for “German” IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about its users’ devices (e.g. as part of the “registration notification” function); Facebook may thus be able to assign IP addresses to individual users. If you are currently logged on to Facebook as a user, a cookie with your Facebook identification is stored on your device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons embedded in web pages allow Facebook to record your visits to these pages and associate them with your Facebook profile. This information can be used to tailor content or advertising to you. If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or disable the “Stay logged in” feature, delete the cookies on your device, and quit and restart your browser. This will delete Facebook information that instantly identifies you. This allows you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook ID. When you access interactive features on the page (like comment, share, message, etc.), a Facebook sign-in screen appears. Once you have logged in, Facebook will recognize you again as a specific user. For information on how to manage or delete information about yourself, please visit the following Facebook support pages: Facebook Support. As the provider of the information service, we do not collect or process any other data from your use of our service. You will find this data protection declaration linked in its current version under the item “Data Policy” on our Facebook page. For further questions on data protection, we refer you to the data protection guideline available to you here on our homepage at: trendig data protection guideline . If you have any questions about the information we offer, you can contact us at hi@trendig.com.

Facebook: Custom Audiences and Facebook marketing services

Based on our legitimate interests in analysing, optimising and efficiently running our website and for these purposes, the so-called “Facebook pixel” from the social media network Facebook, which is run by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA or, if you are resident in the EU, by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”) is used on our website.

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield framework and therefore guarantees that it complies with European data protection law (Privacy Shield framework).

The Facebook pixel enables Facebook to define users of our website as a target group for advertisements (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel so that the Facebook ads we place are only displayed to Facebook users who have also shown interest in our online content or who exhibit certain features (e.g. interest in certain topics or products, based on the websites visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”). Using the Facebook pixel, we also hope to ensure that our Facebook ads reflect users’ interests and are not annoying. Using the Facebook pixel, we can also monitor the efficiency of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversions”).

Facebook processes data in accordance with its Data Policy: Facebook Data Policy. You can find specific information and details on the Facebook pixel and how it works in Facebook’s Help Centre: Facebook Help Centre.

You can object to the recording of data using the Facebook pixel and the use of your data to display Facebook ads. To determine the types of advertisements that are displayed to you on Facebook, visit the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions on adjusting usage-based advertising settings here: Facebook Settings. The settings are adjusted across all platforms, i.e. they are applied for all devices such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

You can also object to the use of cookies for measuring reach and for advertising purposes via the Network Advertising Initiative’s opt-out page as well as via the US website or the European website.
