We collect, process, and use your data in accordance with statutory requirements.
Use of Google Analytics
The collection and storage of your IP address by Google Analytics may be revoked at any time with respect to future services. For more information about this, see http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB. Please note that on this website, Google Analytics has been supplemented by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” in order to ensure anonymised collection of IP addresses.
Use of Facebook Social Plugins
Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white “f” on a blue background or a “thumbs up” sign) or are identified by the phrase “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and the appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
When you visit a page on our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transferred directly from Facebook to your browser, which then embeds it into the website. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data which Facebook collects using this plugin and are therefore informing you to the best of our knowledge:
By integrating the plugin, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can link the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example press the Like button or write a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, there is still a possibility that Facebook will get your IP address and store it.
Please see Facebook’s privacy policies for the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights and settings options for protecting your privacy: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
If you are a Facebook member and do not wish Facebook to collect information about you and link this to your member data already stored by Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins using blocking add-ons for your browser, for example the “Facebook blocker”.
Personal data refers to any information concerning the personal or factual situation of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as your real name, address, telephone number and date of birth. We collect process or use your personal data only for the purposes for which these data were provided to us by you. Your personal data which is transmitted to us will not be passed on to third parties without your consent. Exceptions to this are cases in which we are obliged to disclose the data due to mandatory statutory provisions.

3. Hockenheim-Ring GmbH uses various software solutions to optimise its online offering. These allow usage of the website to be evaluated and valuable information about the users’ needs to be collected in order to continuously increase the user-friendliness of our online service and its quality. In order to carry out these analyses, aggregated and anonymous statistical data are collected. These data are non-personal connection and movement data related to the browser used, the number of page views and visits, the navigation behaviour, and the length of time a visitor visits a ticket store website. In the course of the collection and processing process, the abbreviated IP address of the visitor may also be viewed.
The data is evaluated for the following purposes in particular:
- Counting visitors
- Measuring the most attractive areas of the website for each visitor
- Evaluation of the origin of the visitors to optimise the offer
- Target group-specific modulation of recommendations
Permanent cookies are used in this process (see also above para. 3). The user can refuse to allow these cookies at any time using the appropriate settings of the browser or allow them to be saved only after explicit confirmation. In addition, the user always has the option of generally preventing the use of data in all deployed solutions by choosing the “opt-out option” offered by the solution. If they are refused, however, no specific recommendations can be made for the user.
Hockenheim-Ring GmbH uses the following software solutions in the above mentioned sense (clicking on the respective provider leads to its opt-out option):
Google: http://www.google.com/settings/ads Facebook/Instagram: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices Google Analytics: Disable Google Analytics
Note: The opt-out is made by means of a cookie. If this cookie is deleted, a new opt-out is required.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files that are saved on the user’s computer that enable the analysis of website use. Information generated by the cookie about your website use is usually transmitted and stored on a Google server in the USA.
Google will not associate the IP address transmitted under Google Analytics by your browser with other data held by Google. Hockenheim-Ring GmbH has also expanded Google Analytics with the code “anonymizeIP” on this website. This ensures that the user’s IP address is masked so that all data is collected anonymously. Only in exceptional cases will the whole IP address be first transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.
On behalf of Hockenheim-Ring GmbH, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website, compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with services related to website usage and internet use. The user can refuse to have cookies stored by selecting the appropriate settings in the browser software; however, please be advised that in this case, not all the features of this website may be used.
The user can also prevent the data generated by cookies about the use of the website (including IP address) being passed to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-gb. As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, the user can prevent collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. This then sets an opt-out cookie which prevents any future collection of user data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for this website and is stored on the user’s device. If the user deletes the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie must be set again.
Hockenheim-Ring GmbH also uses Google Analytics to analyse data from DoubleClick cookies as well as AdWords for statistical purposes. If the user does not wish to do so, this can be done via the ads preferences manager (https://www.google.de/settings/ads/) are disabled.
Hockenheim-Ring GmbH uses Google Analytics including the functions of Universal Analytics. Universal Analytics allows us to analyse the activities on our pages across devices (e.g. access via laptop and later via a tablet). This is made possible by the pseudonymous assignment of a user ID to a user. Such an assignment takes place, for example, when the user registers for a customer account or logs on to an existing customer account. However, no personal information will be forwarded to Google. Even if Universal Analytics adds additional features to Google Analytics, this does not imply that it restricts privacy measures such as IP masking or the browser add-on.
