Cookie Notice

Last revised: 1 March 2021

This Website uses cookies and web beacons to improve the user experience and ensure that it is functioning effectively.


In addition to our Privacy Statement, we would like to use this cookie notice to inform you about how we process your personal data that is made available to us through cookies and web beacons. For more information on how we handle and protect the data/information entrusted to us, please see our Privacy Statement.

Cookies are small text files that are stored by our website server on your computer or other device for internet use. There is no danger from these cookies, as they are not executable programs.

We use these cookies in order to provide you with information tailored to your individual needs and relevant to you. We achieve this by collecting, analysing and storing information about you and your usage behaviour with the help of the cookies.

In connection with cookies, we also place small graphic files on our website, so-called web beacons (also known as "pixel tags" or "clear GIFs"), which enable identification of the user or user behavior. 

You can decide for yourself whether you want to allow the use of cookies and web beacons or whether you want to use our website without the use of these technologies. However, we expressly point out that it is not possible to use our website without the use of specially required cookies. To this end, we would like to explain to you in detail which cookies and web beacons we use or would like to use for which purpose:

How we use cookies

These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms.
Functional cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalization based on your interaction with the website. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages.

Performance cookies allow us to track analytics by counting visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our website. They may be set by us or by third party providers to help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the website.

More information you will find in our Privacy Statement.

Web beacons (or tracking pixels) are used to track the number of website visits. 

Targeting/advertising cookies may be set through our website by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other websites.

 

Google Tag Manager 

The Google Tag Manager is used for the collection of data on a website and is a solution with which so-called website tags can be managed centrally via an interface. The data is not collected or stored, but only transferred to analysis programs such as Google Analytics for further processing. The Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) does not process any personal data of the users. Further information on the processing of Google Tag Manager data can be found on the following page:
https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.

Google Analytics Retargeting

In the context of our advertising activities we use retargeting within Google Analytics and the Google Marketing Platform.

Through cross-device functions of Google Analytics and the Google Marketing Platform, advertising target groups created in this way can be linked across devices. Thus, advertising measures based on your previous usage and surfing behavior can be displayed on different end devices. This linking can only take place if you have given your consent. This allows personalized advertising messages to be displayed on your devices on which you have signed in with your Google Account.

For more information and the privacy policy, please see the Google Privacy Policy. The collection of the above information is based solely on your consent. You can revoke this consent at Google.

LinkedIn Insight Tag

As part of our advertising efforts, we use retargeting within LinkedIn; LinkedIn Conversion Tracking by LinkedIn Ireland, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland ("LinkedIn"). LinkedIn Conversion Tracking is a retargeting and analytics tool that is supported by the LinkedIn Insight Tag. The Insight Tag causes a cookie, i.e. a tiny text file, to be placed in the user's web browser when the Deloitte website is visited. The Insight Tag is integrated on the Deloitte website and enables the collection of data such as IP address, the time of the call of this website or the collection of defined events (such as downloads or page views). In addition, users can be shown interest-specific and relevant offers and recommendations depending on which services, information and offers users have found out about on the Deloitte website. Furthermore, this allows LinkedIn to compile statistics with aggregated data about the use and visit of the Deloitte website. If a user is a LinkedIn member, demographic information, e.g. regarding the approximate location, can also be collected. The cookie stored by the Insight Tag in the browser remains there until it is manually deleted by the user or automatically deleted after the last loading of the Insight Tag. 

The storage of cookies can generally be edited via the web browser setting. Alternatively, users can specifically object to LinkedIn conversion tracking by setting an opt-out cookie that remains on the device until the user deletes the cookies. Users can deactivate the LinkedIn cookie under this link. LinkedIn members can do this by clicking on the "Opt-out on LinkedIn" box. Non-members click on "Opt-out". Further information on data protection at LinkedIn can be found here
