2. Data processing in connection with the glomex player

2.1 glomex only uses pseudonyms.

Personal data means any information that can be attributed to a person, such as name, age, email address, telephone number or information about website usage and interactions with advertising. In principle, glomex‘s services do not involve the storing of any information about viewers in clear text. glomex does not know the name, address or email address of the glomex player’s audience. All information processed by glomex via the glomex player is recorded, stored and evaluated using temporary identifiers (pseudonyms) that glomex cannot decipher or re-identify.

2.2 Categories of data processed in connection with the glomex player.

The provision of the content combined with relevant advertising is generally implemented using IP addresses, cookies and comparable technologies (hereinafter also referred to as “identifiers”).

Through the glomex player, glomex collects the following usage data:

  • current IP address of the device (pseudonymized by removing the last range part of the IP address)
  • date and time when the video in the glomex player was started
  • information about the region or location where the player is currently being used
  • technical data about the device and operating system used
  • where applicable, general information on the user groups (such as age, gender and interests)
  • other identifiers (such as localStorage)

Our advertising partners (see also section 3 below) also use additional identifiers (e.g. cookies) to collect information about your activities in the glomex player and on third-party websites to match collected pseudonymized usage data regarding you as a viewer of the glomex player so that advertisements targeted to your browser activities and interests can be delivered to you in the glomex player.

2.3 Purposes of data processing in the glomex player.

When an end user starts a video in the glomex player, glomex provides video content from its content owners via an integration service and combines it with ads targeted from varying advertising partners. glomex tracks the usage of the glomex player component for billing purposes, anti-fraud and adblock prevention and is responsible for these data processing activities. Each advertising partner who works with glomex to deploy advertising to the end user by means of placing cookies to glomex’s services is individually responsible for the associated data processing activity (please see section 3 below).

If a viewer clicks on the deployed advertising, for example to reach the advertised online service, this is recorded by glomex. Here glomex does not know the identity of the viewer, but by means of the identifiers can only recognise those viewers who have previously received one of the deployed ads. glomex receives this data about interactions with ads and the pseudonymized IP addresses, so that it can use this data to bill for its own services with customers, to enable billing verification, to prevent adblocking, to create statistical overviews for customers and to measure the reach and efficiency of ads for glomex‘s customers. glomex also uses the usage data and data about interactions with ads to troubleshoot and to improve its own services, e.g. in the context of A/B split tests.

3. Data recipients.

glomex only discloses data to third parties if this is necessary for the deployment of ads and the implementation of campaigns or other purposes listed in this privacy notice or if another legal basis for the disclosure of the data exists.

3.1. The Adex / Cooperation with ProSiebenSat.1 Digital Data.

glomex uses a service for advertising optimization provided by ProSiebenSat.1 Digital Data GmbH, Medienallee 7, 85774 Unterföhring (PSDD). glomex and PSDD are jointly responsible for the associated enabling of the data collection by PSDD. PSDD uses The ADEX as a service provider for this purpose. The ADEX is a company located in Germany, Torstraße 19, 10119 Berlin.

ADEX offers technologies to optimize the placement and control of advertising for the user based on his individual interests and the user behavior on websites and to make their percentage of the so-called “conversion”, the way from the first advertisement to the final purchase, measurable. Cookies, web beacons or similar technologies are used for this purpose. The collected usage data is stored under a pseudonym. This pseudonym is assigned information about the user activities on our websites, services, applications and tools (e.g. clicked advertising banners, visited sub-pages, search queries made, etc.)

The transmitted IP address of a user device is rendered completely anonymous and used to form household networks. In household networks, the devices connected to the Internet, such as computers, telephones, connected TVs and others, can be identified and the respective usage data collected from websites can be combined across the various devices. With the information obtained, neither personal data nor a concrete location of a user can be determined. A personal identification of the user is therefore impossible.

Further information on data protection at ADEX is available at: Privacy Notice and Opt-Out

If the user no longer wishes to receive usage-based advertising and wishes to prevent the further collection of usage data, they can use the following opt-out link: Opt-Out
