Cookies from BOOK A TIGER
BOOK A TIGER uses several cookies which are essential for the site’s operation, for example, to be able to log in easily or book a cleaner.
When BOOK A TIGER is used, BOOK A TIGER’s own cookies (“first-party cookies”) are placed on your computer. Third parties are not involved in the placement or reading out of these first-party cookies. Only BOOK A TIGER has access to these cookies. The various first-party cookies used by BOOK A TIGER are summarised below.
First, BOOK A TIGER places technical cookies on your computer; these cookies are necessary for the service to be provided. BOOK A TIGER also works with “session cookies”. The information stored in these cookies does not include any names, addresses or other personal data besides your IP address, and the cookies are deleted as soon as you stop using BOOK A TIGER. With the help of these data, BOOK A TIGER can adjust the website to the needs of those visiting it.
BOOK A TIGER uses permanent cookies, too, for instance, to remember the preferences stated by you. Finally, BOOK A TIGER employs tracking cookies, to keep track of which sites you visit and to provide offers targeted to you. The resulting profile is not linked to your name, address, email address or the like, but is merely intended to gear advertisements to your profile, to make sure they are as relevant as possible to you.
Cookies from third parties
In addition to the cookies which BOOK A TIGER itself uses, cookies from third parties (“third-party cookies”) are placed on your computer/device via the website.
Google Analytics, Mixpanel, Optimizely and Piwik Analytics
To compile web statistics on the use of and visits to BOOK A TIGER, BOOK A TIGER makes use of Google Analytics, Mixpanel, Optimizely and Piwik Analytics. These services place permanent cookies on your computer/device, based on which your use of BOOK A TIGER is recorded. Such data are then analysed, and the results are disclosed to BOOK A TIGER. BOOK A TIGER thus gains insight into how the website is being used and can, based on the data, make any necessary adjustments to the website or application and optimise the way they operate. Google, Mixpanel, Optimizely and Piwik may disclose this information to third parties if they must do so by law and/or if third parties process the information for Google, Mixpanel, Optimizely or Piwik. We have no control over how these companies use the data.

Access to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Xing is also offered via BOOK A TIGER. Through these “social plug-ins”, you can share articles on BOOK A TIGER with others. Third-party cookies are placed on your computer through social plug-ins. These may be cookies designed to optimise your user experience, although tracking cookies may also be placed on your computer to monitor your surfing behaviour across multiple websites and to create your surfing behaviour profile.
To serve up advertisements, a DoubleClick and Google Adwords cookie is employed. This cookie does not monitor surfing behaviour or personal information, but merely ensures that the same advertisements are not continually displayed. This is also referred to as a “frequency cap”. If you do not want this cookie, however, you can indicate this on the YourChoicesOnline website.
3.3. Cookie removal
