7. Cookie

On its website, Goodcode uses so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are saved on the user's hard drive and store settings and data exchanged with Goodcode's system in the user's browser. In this way, it is no longer necessary to provide certain data on the next visit and the Internet offer becomes easier to use and more effective, so that the user can be identified on subsequent visits. Cookies do not contain any information that can directly identify individual users. In addition, the analysis tools used by Goodcode, "Google Analytics" and "HubSpot", also use cookies.

The website uses cookies of the following types:

  • temporary cookies (temporary use)
  • persistent cookies (time-limited use)
  • third party cookies (from third party suppliers).

Temporary cookies are automatically deleted when the user closes the browser. This mainly concerns session cookies, which store the so-called session ID, to which you can associate several requests made by the user's browser in the same session. The user's computer is recognised when the user visits the website again. Goodcode uses this type of cookie to ensure the functioning and functionality of its website. Session cookies are deleted when the user disconnects or closes the browser.

Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a different default period depending on the type of cookie. Goodcode uses this type of cookie to improve the usability of the page by storing user-specific settings.

Third party cookies are cookies set and created by third parties. Goodcode uses this type of cookie for advertising purposes.

If you do not consent to the use of cookies, you may disable their use completely in your browser settings. You can also delete cookies manually or automatically.

You may also configure the security settings of your browser to refuse the acceptance of third party cookies. By disabling cookies, some features of the website may no longer work. By opting out of these measures and using the website, you declare your consent to the use of cookies.


8. Google Analytics

The website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies to analyse your use of the website and to enable Goodcode to produce reports on website activities. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Goodcode website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google complies with the data protection regulations of the "EU-U.S. Privacy Shield" agreement and is registered in the "EU-U.S. Privacy Shield" program of the US Department of Commerce (for more details about the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and individual registrations, please visit www.privacyshield.gov).

If IP anonymisation is activated on the Goodcode website, the IP address of the Google user will be shortened within Switzerland or the Member States of the European Union or the other countries of the Agreement on the European Economic Area (depending on the counterfactual situation). Only in exceptional cases will the IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA in its complete and abbreviated form there. Google uses this information on behalf of Goodcode, to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and Internet use to Goodcode as website operator.

The IP address transmitted by your browser by Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. Goodcode informs you that on this website Google Analytics has been expanded with the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" to enable the anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called "IP masking"). IP addresses are treated in an abbreviated form and therefore the possibility of associating them with a person is excluded.

You can prevent the use of cookies by setting the appropriate settings in your browser software. In some cases, some features of the website may no longer be fully available. In addition, you can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by installing the browser plug-in available at this address. By opting out of this measure, you consent to the processing of your data by Google Analytics in the manner described and for the purposes indicated.

Google Analytics is operated by Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. For more information on the data protection of Google Analytics, you can visit this website.


9. HubSpot CRM System

Your information may be stored in our customer relationship management system ("CRM system") or other similar systems. On our site we use HubSpot, a service of American HubSpot Inc. (hereinafter "HubSpot"). HubSpot uses web beacons and cookies to help us analyze your use of our site. In other words, if you contact us, register for an event or send another form integrated by HubSpot, your activities on this website will be assigned to your cookie, if you have given your consent in accordance with section 6 paragraph 1 letter a GDPR, thus allowing an in-depth analysis of the use of your website (e.g. pages visited, date and time of visits, forms completed, documents downloaded). In addition, for some forms we will send you the required digital resources via e-mail. This allows us to better adapt the user experience on the website and external communication to the needs of our visitors.

You can individually disable or allow/block the use of cookies by our website or third party providers at any time in your browser settings as set out above. How to do this is described in the Cookies section (see above).
