In this case, pseudonymous user profiles of the processed data can be created.

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

Google AdWords and conversion measurement

We use Google's online marketing method "AdWords" to place ads on the Google advertising network (e.g. in search results, in videos, on websites, etc.) to show them to users who have a suspected interest in the ads. This allows us to better target advertisements for and within our online offering so that we only present ads to users that potentially match their interests. If a user e.g. getting ads for products he was looking for on other online offers, it is called remarketing. For these purposes, upon access to our and other websites where the Google Advertising Network is active, Google will immediately execute a code from Google and become so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also as " Web beacons ") incorporated into the website. With their help, the user is provided with an individual cookie on the device. a small file is saved (instead of cookies, comparable technologies can be used). In this file is noted which web pages the user visited, for what content he is interested and what offers the user has clicked, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time and other information on the use of the online offer.

Furthermore, we receive an individual "conversion cookie". The information obtained through the cookie is used by Google to generate conversion statistics for us. However, we only hear about the anonymous total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies users.

The data of the users are pseudonym processed in the context of the Google advertising network. That Google stores and processes e. g. not the name or e-mail address of the users, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. That from the perspective of Google, the ads are not managed and displayed to a specifically identified person, but to the cookie owner, regardless of who that cookie owner is. This does not apply if a user has explicitly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the United States.

If we ask users for consent (for example, in the context of a cookie consent), the legal basis of this processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. a. DSGVO. Otherwise, the personal data of the users are processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (i. e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) of the DSGVO).

As far as data is processed in the US, we point out that Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, thereby ensuring compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active) ,

For more information about Google's data usage, hiring and opt-out options, please read Google's Privacy Policy (https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads) and Google's Ads Ads Settings (https: // adssettings.google.com/authenticated).

 

Online presence in social media

We maintain online presence within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, prospects and users active there and to inform them about our services.

We point out that data of the users outside the area of the European Union can be processed. This may result in risks to users because, e.g. the enforcement of user rights could be made more difficult. With respect to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we point out that they are committed to respecting EU privacy standards.

Furthermore, the data of the users are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, e. g. user profiles are created from the user behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles may in turn be used to e.g. place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are allegedly in line with users' interests. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users, in which the user behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, in the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the devices used by the users (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and logged in to them).

The processing of personal data of users is based on our legitimate interests in an effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. If the users are asked by the respective providers of the platforms for a consent to the above-described data processing, the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.

For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of contradiction (opt-out), we refer to the following linked information of the provider.

Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be claimed most effectively from the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, then you can contact us.

Integration of services and contents of third parties

Based on our legitimate interests (i. e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO), we make use of content or services offered by third-party providers in order to provide their content and services, such as include videos or fonts (collectively referred to as "content").

This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also referred to as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. The "pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information, such as visitor traffic, on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user's device and may include, but is not limited to, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, time of visit, and other information regarding the use of our online offer.
