Cookies & other tracking technologies when using the Parship website

Cookies & Tracking

In addition to the processing of personal data described in the Privacy Policy, cookies and other tracking technologies (hereinafter also collectively referred to as “Cookies”) are stored on your device when or after accessing the Parship website.

A cookie is a small text file that is sent to your device when you access a website and is stored in your browser. If you access the same webpage again later, your browser will check its cookies and will recognize you as a returning user.

Third party technologies such as scripts, pixels and tags that Parship embeds in the Parship website for promotional purposes also place cookies on your device.

Some cookies are automatically erased after the end of the browser session (“session cookies”), whereas other cookies are stored for a predetermined amount of time or permanently in your browser, and then erase themselves automatically (“temporary” or “permanent” cookies).

What categories of cookies does Parship use?

Parship classifies cookies into different categories depending on their function and purpose:

“Essential” cookies

Certain cookies are essential to the Parship website, as they ensure the safe and proper functioning of our Service.

This category of cookies includes, e.g.:

  • Cookies that identify or authenticate our users, and cookies needed for a secure authentication process;
  • Cookies that ensure the security of Parship’s information system;
  • Cookies that control abuse;
  • Cookies that temporarily store certain user entries;
  • Cookies that store certain user preferences.

These cookies enable you to navigate safely on our website and use the functions as desired. Without these cookies, Parship cannot provide its essential services. We only use these cookies when you visit our website. These cookies are also used to retrieve the optimised website display when you access our website with a mobile device, so that your mobile data volume is not unnecessarily consumed.

The legal basis is the legitimate interest of Parship and its members that the Parship Service is safe, easy to use, and constantly being improved.

A consent is not required to use "essential" cookies. They cannot be deactivated.

You will find an overview and more detailed information about the "essential" cookies we use in our CMP.


“Functional” cookies

“Functional” tracking technologies enable us to perform a comprehensive analysis of the use of our website. We produce statistics based on this analysis.

We collect information, for instance, on how Parship members and users interact with our website and identify which pages they have visited.

We measure the success of our advertising campaigns through by measuring their reach and, in doing so, obtain statistics-based values that can be compared across the market. With the aid of cookies and/or by evaluating log files, we also create user profiles.

As a rule, we either do not use the IP addresses of users at all or shorten them immediately after they are collected.

The purpose of data processing is to structure our website according to requirements, analyse the reach of our website and our advertising campaigns and, by collecting information, achieve a better understanding of our the needs of our users and Parship members in connection with their use of our website.

The legal basis for data processing is your consent.

We process your data alone or with the assistance of data processors, who process your data according to our instructions and not for their own purposes. Where we jointly process personal data with the providers for certain purposes and by jointly determined means, we and the providers are joint controllers pursuant to Article 26 UK GDPR. In other cases, the providers also process personal data independently. Additionally, some providers may be based in or transfer data to non-UK countries.

You will find an overview and more detailed information on the “functional” cookies that we use and the service providers that we work with as well as the purpose of data processing here.

You can object to the processing of data on your device related to cookies and at any time. You can find out how to object to your data being processed under “How can you manage, prevent the use of, or erase cookies?“. With respect to tools that work with opt-out cookies, please note that the opt-out function is device- or browser-specific and is only valid for the device or browser currently in use. If you use several devices or browsers, you must opt-out on each individual device and in each browser used.

“Marketing” Cookies

We also use cookies for advertising purposes (“marketing“ cookies). We use user behaviour profiles created with the help of these cookies (e.g., which banner ads you have clicked on, which subpages you have visited, which search queries you have made) to measure the performance/ success of our advertisements, gain insights into target groups and display advertisements or products that are relevant to you.

In this context, we also allow other companies to collect our users’ data via cookies. We also forward tracking data to companies like Google and Microsoft so that we can measure the success of advertising campaigns (“conversion tracking”).

These companies may process the collected data for their own purposes, including and in particular for the purpose of providing their web analysis and tracking services. They may also combine the data they have collected using cookies with other data captured on the websites of the respective companies. Thus it may be possible for the companies to create usage profiles.

The legal basis for data processing is your consent.

We process your data alone or with the assistance of data processors, who process your data according to our instructions and not for their own purposes. Where we jointly process personal data for certain purposes and by jointly determined means, we and the companies are joint controllers pursuant to Article 26 UK GDPR. In other cases, the companies also process personal data independently. Additionally, some companies may be based in or transfer data to non-UK countries.

You will find an overview and more detailed information on the “marketing” cookies that we use and the companies that we work with as well as the purpose of data processing CMP.

You can object to the processing of data on your device related to cookies at any time. You can find out how to object to your data being processed under the heading “How can you manage, prevent the use of, or erase cookies?“. With tools that work with opt-out cookies, it should be noted that the opt-out function is device- or browser-specific and is only valid for the device or browser currently in use. If you use several devices or browsers, you must set the opt-out on each individual device and in each browser used. You can also prevent any user profiles being created by objecting to the use of cookies in general.

If you do not agree with the use of marketing cookies and object to their use, you will be shown advertisements that may be less relevant to you.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data in connection with cookies

  • Where we obtain your consent as our lawful basis for processing, our legal basis for the processing is point (a) of Article 6(1) of the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR).
  • When the processing of your personal data is required to fulfil our contractual relationship (either in relation to Basic Membership or Premium Membership), our legal basis for the processing is point (b) of Article 6(1) UK GDPR. This also applies to any processing of data that is required to carry out any pre-contractual actions.
  • If the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interest of Parship or a third party, such as our members, and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override those legitimate interests, our legal basis for the processing is point (f) of Article 6(1) UK GDPR.

When the legal basis for processing is your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time. However, this withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out on the basis of your consent before your withdrawal. If the legal basis is a legitimate interest, you are also entitled, in general, to object to the processing of your personal data, at any time, for reasons arising from your specific situation. Article 21 UK GDPR applies in this respect.

How can you manage, prevent the use of, or erase cookies?

With the exception of “essential” cookies, we only use cookies with your consent. Using Parship’s CMP, you can decide on your preferred use of cookies and review cookies already stored on your computer. You are also free to change any previous decisions regarding cookies at any time and you may (for instance) subsequently withdraw any consent you have given. To do so, you can access the settings options in our CMP.

If you would like to contact us regarding your consent, please refer to the information provided for this purpose in the Contact section of our Privacy Policy or e-mail us at privacypolicy@parship.co.uk and enter your consent ID and date of giving consent. You will find both pieces of information in the CMP.

Tracking technologies when using the Parship app

In addition to processing personal data as described in the Privacy Policy, tracking technologies are also used when you use the Parship app.

Device IDs, which are unique to each particular device, are used for tracking within apps. For iOs devices these IDs are called “Identifier for Advertisers (IDFA)” and for Android devices they are called “Google Advertising ID.” If, under Settings, you have not objected to the use of this ID for targeting and/or advertising purposes or have not objected to the use of IDs in general, we will be able to identify your ID and we and/or our Partners will be able to use it to collect information.

What categories of tracking technologies does Parship use?

Parship classifies tracking technologies into different categories depending on their function and purpose.

“Essential” tracking technologies

Certain tracking technologies are essential to the Parship app, as they ensure its safe and proper functioning. This category of cookies includes e.g.:

  • tracking technologies that identify or authenticate our users, and tracking technologies in connection with a secure authentication process,
  • tracking technologies that ensure the security of Parship’s information system,
  • tracking technologies that control abuse,
  • tracking technologies that temporarily store certain user entries,
  • tracking technologies that store certain user preferences.

These tracking technologies enable you to navigate safely in our app and use the functions as desired. Without these tracking technologies, Parship cannot provide its essential services. We only use these tracking technologies when you use our app.

The legal basis is the legitimate interest of Parship and its members that the Parship Service is safe, easy to use, and constantly being improved.

A consent is not required to use "essential" tracking technologies. They cannot be deactivated.

You will find an overview and more detailed information on the “essential” tracking technologies that we use here.


“Functional” tracking technologies

"Functional" tracking technologies let us enable us to perform a comprehensive analysis within the framework of use of our app. We use this analysis to produce statistics.

We collect information, for instance, about how Parship members and users interact with our app and which pages they have visited.

We also create user profiles with the aid of “functional” tracking technologies.

Data collected by "functional" tracking technologies cannot be used to identify you personally or to track your activities on other apps.

The purpose of data processing is to structure our app according to requirements, analyse the reach of our app and our advertising campaigns and, by collecting information, achieve a better understanding of the needs of our users and the Parship members in connection with their use of our app.

The legal basis for data processing is your consent.

We process your data on our own or with the assistance of data processors, who process your data according to our instructions and not for their own purposes. Where we jointly process personal data for certain purposes and by jointly determined means, we and the providers are joint controllers in accordance with Article 26 UK GDPR. In other cases, these providers also process personal data independently. Additionally, some providers are based in or transfer data to non-UK countries.

You will find an overview and more detailed information on the “functional” tracking technologies that we use and the service providers that we work with here.

You can deactivate these tracking technologies or withdraw your consent at any time. You can find out how to object to your data being processed under "How can you manage, prevent the use of, or erase tracking technologies?“.Please note that, for apps, the opt-out function is device-specific and is only valid for the device currently in use. If you use our app on several devices, you must opt-out on each individual device used.

“Marketing” tracking technologies

We also use tracking technologies for advertising purposes (“marketing” tracking technologies). We use user behaviour profiles created with the help of these tracking technologies (e.g., which banner ads you have clicked on, what actions you have taken in the app, which search queries you have made) to measure the performance of our advertisements (conversion tracking of advertising campaigns).

In this context, we also allow other companies to collect our users’ data with the aid of tracking technologies or obtain this data from us. This enables us and those companies to measure the success of these advertising campaigns (“conversion tracking”).

The legal basis for data processing is your consent.

We process your data on our own or with the assistance of data processors, who process your data according to our instructions and not for their own purposes. Where we jointly process personal data for certain purposes and by jointly determined means, we and the companies are joint controllers pursuant to Article 26 UK GDPR. In other cases, the companies also process personal data independently. Some companies may be located in or transfer data to non-UK countries.

You can find an overview and more detailed information on the “marketing” tracking technologies that we use and the companies that we work with as well as the purpose of data processing here.

You can object to the processing of data on your device related to tracking technologies at any time. You can find out how to object to your data being processed under “How can you manage, prevent the use of, or erase tracking technologies?”. Please note that, for apps, the opt-out function is device-specific and is only valid for the device currently in use. If you use our app on several devices, you must set the opt-out function on each individual device used.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data in connection with tracking technologies

  • We obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data by non-essential tracking technologies. In this case, the legal basis is Article 6(1) of the UK GDPR.
  • When the processing of your personal data is required to fulfil our contractual relationship (either in relation to Basic Membership or Premium Membership), our legal basis for the processing is point (b) of Article 6(1) UK GDPR. This also applies to any processing of data that is required to carry out any pre-contractual actions.
  • If the processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interest of Parship or a third party, such as our members, and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override those legitimate interests, our legal basis for the processing is point (f) of Article 6(1) UK GDPR.

When the legal basis for processing is your consent, you are entitled to withdraw your consent at any time. However, this withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out on the basis of your consent before your withdrawal. If the legal basis is a legitimate interest, you are also entitled, in general, to object to the processing of your personal data, at any time, for reasons arising from your specific situation. Article 21 UK GDPR applies in this respect.

How can you manage, prevent the use of, or erase tracking technologies?

With the exception of “essential” tracking technologies, we only use tracking technologies with your consent. You can withdraw your consent or change your settings at any time. To do this, go to the top of this page and click on “Tracking settings”.

Furthermore, it is possible to reset the use of the ID on your device for targeting and/or advertising purposes at any time. You can also opt-out from the use of IDs on your device in general (see instructions for Android devices here and for Apple devices here).
