The values include, in particular, the source website (referrer), time, an online identifier of the operator of the website on which the affiliate link was located, an online identifier of the respective offer, an online identifier of the user, as well as tracking-specific values such as advertising material ID, affiliate ID and categorizations.

The online user IDs we use are pseudonymous values. That is, the online identifiers themselves do not contain any personal data such as names or email addresses. They only help us to determine whether the same user who clicked on an affiliate link or became interested in an offer via our online offer has taken advantage of the offer, i.e. has concluded a contract with the provider, for example. However, the online identifier is personal to the extent that the partner company and also us, the online identifier together with other user data. Only in this way can the partner company inform us whether the user has taken up the offer and we can, for example, receive the bonus. Affiliate Program
