In addition to our own systems, we also use the following third-party tools for marketing purposes and to make your visit to our websites or the use of our products/services more user-friendly

Google Analytics 360

We use Google Analytics 360, a web analysis service from Google (Google Inc.). Google Analytics uses cookies that enable us to analyse your use of our websites. The data generated by cookies about your use of our website is generally processed on European servers in accordance with GDPR guidelines. Google may transfer the data to a server in the USA and store it there. Prior to this, however, Google will shorten your IP address if it originates in a member state of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus make it anonymous (Google’s anonymizeIp process). The entire IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there only in exceptional cases. This anonymization ensures that your IP address cannot be traced back to you. Google uses this data to evaluate your use of the website, to generate reports on website activities for Marksystem, and to provide other services associated with website and internet use. Google can transfer this information to third parties, where appropriate, if legally mandated or if Google contracts with third parties to process such data. Google will not associate your IP address with other Google data.

You still have the option to prevent Google from collecting data generated by cookies and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as from processing this data by downloading and installing a browser plug-in provided by Google.

Further information on Google Analytics can be found here.

We do not share or sell your data to third parties for advertising purposes. Your personal data will not be transmitted to third parties for reasons other than those listed below.

We will only disclose your personal data to third parties, if:

  • You have expressly given us your consent for this,
  • it is legally permissible and necessary for the execution of our contractual relationships with you,
  • data transmission is based on a legal obligation, as well as
  • data disclosure is justified by a particular interest and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data at this time.

We share personal data with the following recipients or categories of recipients for the aforementioned reasons:

  • Employees (internal and external)
  • IT infrastructure service providers
  • Payment processors
  • Providers of analysis tools

Here are a few examples:

  • Enom – domain registrar.
  • 2CheckOut and Paypal – payment gateways.
  • Google analytics – we use this tool for track and analyze website traffic.
  • SurveyMonkey (SurveyMonkey Europe UC) – we use this platform to conduct surveys such as on your product satisfaction. For your protection, personal data is processed in a pseudonymous form.

We enter into contracts with carefully selected third parties (sub-processors) so that they can assist us in servicing you. Our contracts with such third parties prohibit them from using any of your personal information for any purpose beyond the purpose for which it was shared.


If you purchase a product or service from a third party through our website, we will pass your personal information to such third party in order for them to fulfil your order.

We use a third-party payment processor to process payments made to us. In connection with the processing of such payments, we do not retain any personally identifiable information or any financial information such as credit card numbers. Rather, all such information is provided directly to our third-party processors whose use of your personal information is governed by their privacy policy. We use third party payment processors, such as PayPal and 2 Checkout for all payments. For more details of your payment data processing, please refer to the Privacy Policy of the Payment provider you choose while placing the order. Marksystem does not store credit card details and instead relies on its processors for this.

Marksystem is a processor based in EU and uses, generally, third-parties service providers also based in the European Union. However, to be able to deliver specific services, such as domain name registration, we might use trusted service providers based outside European Union or European Economic Area (EEA). An example is ‘’Enom’’ which is a provider based in Canada.

Marksystem does not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any Personal Data through the Services.
