Server protocol data

Our web server processes a series of data for each request, which your browser automatically transmits to our web server. This data comprises the IP address currently assigned to your device, the date and time of the request, the time zone, the specific page or file called up, the http status code and the amount of data transferred. Additionally, the website from which your request came, the browser used, the operating system of your end device and the set language. The web server uses this data to display the contents of this website in the best possible way on your device.

Web analysis with Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP anonymization is activated for this website, meaning Google will shorten your IP address within the European Union or in another contracting state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
Google will use this information as a processor according to Art. 28 GDPR to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide the website’s operator with further services connected with the use of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. You can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the available browser plug-in.

Web analysis with Google AdWords

This website uses Google AdWords conversion tracking, another Google analysis service. Google AdWords uses temporary cookies that are stored on your computer for a short time when you click on an Ableton ad. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website after the advertisement has been clicked is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information as a contractually designated processor pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR to evaluate your use of the website after the advertisement has been clicked and to compile reports on these website activities.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This service can be used to manage website tags. The Google Tag Manager only sets up tags. Tags are codes used to measure traffic and visitor behavior. The tags are from Google Analytics (see above). The Google Tag Manager only manages these tags, does not set cookies, and does not collect any personally identifiable information. If you deactivated tracking, this also applies to all tracking tags managed with the Google Tag Manager.

The purpose of data processing is to present Ableton AG on the internet and to communicate with job candidates, interested parties, customers and business partners. The purpose of evaluating user behavior on the website is to design the website in line with their requirements.

The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR (contract of use for the website). The legal basis for the analysis of user behavior is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interest, namely the demand-oriented design of the website).

If a criminal offence is suspected or in the course of an investigation, data may be transferred to the police and the public prosecutor's office. We use service providers to process orders for the provision of our services, in particular for the provision, maintenance and servicing of IT systems.

IP addresses are anonymized after 24 hours at the latest. Pseudonymous user data is deleted after a period of six months.
