ARKU does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to “Do Not Track” (DNT) signals.

However, if you select this setting, certain parts of our website may become inaccessible and certain features may not work correctly. Unless you adjust your browser settings to refuse cookies, our system will issue them.

b.    Bing (Universal event tracking - UET)

On our website, data is collected and saved using the technologies of Bing Ads from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms. This is a service of the Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA. This service enables us to track the activities of users on our website if they accessed our website via advertisements from Bing Ads. If you access our website via an advertisement of this nature, a cookie is set on your computer. A Bing UET tag is integrated on our website. This is a code which, in combination with the cookie, saves some non-personal data about the usage of the website. This includes, among other things, the time spent on the website, which areas of the website were opened and via which advertisement the users accessed the website. No information about your identity is collected.

The information collected is transmitted to Microsoft servers in the USA and is stored for a period of 180 days at most. You can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie with respect to your usage of the website as well as the processing of these data by deactivating the use of cookies. This could possibly lead to a restricted functionality of the website.

Opt-out of tracking

Furthermore, Microsoft can possibly track your usage behavior across several of your electronic devices using so-called Cross-Device Tracking and is thereby able to display personalized advertising on or in Microsoft web pages and apps. You can deactivate this behavior under

Further information about the analysis services of Bing can be found on the Bing Ads website ( Further information about data protection at Microsoft and Bing can be found in Microsoft’s data protection provisions (

d.    Integration of YouTube

We have integrated YouTube videos into our online offer, which are stored on and can be played directly from our website.

By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have called upon the corresponding sub-page of our website. In addition, the data listed in the passage “description of data processing on the website/app and legal basis for processing” is transmitted. This takes place regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile from YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
