Clear gif files (Web Beacons):
Our service sometimes uses a software technology known as clear gif files (i.e. web beacons) to help us improve managing the contents and user interaction by telling us which contents are effective. Clear gif files are tiny graphics with a unique label that work in a similar way to cookies and are used to monitor the user’s online activities. In contrast to cookies that are saved on a user’s computer hard disk, clear gif files are embedded invisibly in websites and are about as big as the full stop at the end of this sentence. Where appropriate, we combine the information collected by the clear gif files with the personal information of our customers.

This data is anonymous and cannot be tied to specific individuals. A combination of this data with other data sources is not made. We reserve the right to analyze these data in case of concrete evidence of unlawful use.

Integration of other third-party services and content:
It is possible for third-party contents, such as videos on YouTube, ActOn Software, GoToMeeting, Amazon Web Services or contents from other websites are integrated in this Website(s). This always presumes that the providers of such content (referred to hereinafter as “third-party providers”) can see the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they could not send the contents to the respective user’s device. The IP address is therefore necessary in order to show these contents. We endeavor to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address merely to supply the contents. However, Datacolor has no influence on whether the third-party providers save the IP address e.g. for statistical purposes.
For the purposes of extended usage, some third-party providers (e.g. GoToMeeting operated by Citrix Inc. and ActOn Software, Inc.) demand the disclosure also of personal data, including the user’s name and e-mail address. Without disclosing such personal data, these external services could not be used at all or only to a limited extent.
You can find more information about the use of personal data by Citrix Inc. (GoToMeeting) on the following website:
