The SIXT RIDE website uses the HotJar analytics services for purposes of improving customer friendliness and customer experiences. These services can record mouse clicks as well as scroll movements. They can also record information entered on this website via keyboard. Such information is not personalised and thus remains anonymous.

Use of Google Maps
This website integrates so-called social plugins (e.g. "Like-Button") of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). If you interact with the plugins, e.g. by clicking the "like" button, you as a Facebook registered user can automatically leave a note in your facebook profile telling your network that you like the content you are visiting .
In this respect, our website enables ongoing data exchange with Facebook. Please note that a data exchange or the link already takes place when you access our website and does not depend on the activation of the social plugin / "Like-Button" or on a login to Facebook. If you don't want Facebook to be able to create a personalized motion profile of you, please log out of Facebook. Closing the Facebook page is not enough. Please see the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy at http://www.facebook.com/policy.php .
Use of the Facebook Custom Audience service based on Facebook pixels
Our website uses the so-called Facebook pixel created by the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or, if you are resident in the EU, by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). This tool serves to present users of our website with advertising (“Facebook ads”) that matches their interests during their visits to Facebook. In this way we ensure that our Facebook ads correspond with the interests of the respective users and are therefore not perceived as a nuisance. We also use the Facebook pixel to track how many users click on our Facebook ads. This enables us to assess the effectiveness of those ads, which is useful for statistical and market research purposes. The Facebook pixel is activated by Facebook as soon as you open our website. It can store so-called cookies on your computer. If you log into Facebook after visiting our website, or visit Facebook while still logged in, then Facebook will assign this information to your personal Facebook account. The data recorded about you in no way allows us to draw inferences regarding your identity as a user. The collection and processing of the data by Facebook complies with the provisions of the Facebook Data Policy. For more information in this respect, please go to: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy . You can, at any time, object to the recording of data by the Facebook pixel and the use of your data to present Facebook ads. To do so, please visit the page specially set up by Facebook for this purpose (when there, see the settings for use-based advertising), while you are still logged in to Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/settings . The settings are platform-independent, meaning that they will be assumed for all devices, whether desktop computers or mobile devices.

Google Tag Manager
The platform uses the Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed through an interface. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which in turn collect data if necessary. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, it remains valid for all tracking tags if they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.
