§3 Web Analysis with Google Analytics

(1) Purpose of data processing

If you have given your consent, Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited ("Google") is used on this website. The use includes the "Universal Analytics" operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze a user's activities across devices.

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users interact with the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visit https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or https://policies.google.com/?hl=en.

§ 4 Google Ads

We use "Google Ads" on our website, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Google"). Google Ads enables us to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media on external websites. This enables us to determine how successful individual advertising measures are. These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called "AdServers". For this purpose, we use so-called AdServer cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days. They are not intended to identify you personally. The following information is usually stored as analysis values for this cookie: unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions), opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed). These cookies enable Google to recognize your web browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Ads customers' websites. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising tools; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google's server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of Google Ads. According to our knowledge, Google receives the information that you have called up the relevant part of our website or clicked on an ad from us. If you have a user account with Google and are registered, Google can assign the visit to your user account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that Google learns your IP address and stores it.

We use Google Ads for marketing and optimization purposes, in particular to display ads that are relevant and interesting to you, to improve campaign performance reports and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs. This is also our legitimate interest in the processing of the above data by the third-party provider. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

You can prevent the installation of cookies by deleting existing cookies and deactivating the storage of cookies in the settings of your web browser. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent. It is also possible to prevent the storage of cookies by setting your web browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com" (https://www.google.de/settings/ads). We would like to point out that this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies. In addition, you can deactivate interest-based ads via the link http://optout.aboutads.info. We would like to point out that this setting will also be deleted when you delete your cookies.

§ 5 Use of Bing Ads

We use Bing Ads technologies (bingads.microsoft.com) on our website, which are provided and operated by Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA („Microsoft“). Microsoft places a cookie on your computer or mobile device if you have come to our website through a Microsoft Bing Ad. By this, Microsoft and we are enabled to monitor users who have clicked the ad, have been led to our website and there reached a particular target page („conversion site”). We only learn about the overall number of users who have clicked on a Bing Ad and have been led to the conversion site. Microsoft collects, processes and uses data which then is used to create anonymized usage profiles. These profiles are used to understand how users engage with the website and are used to deliver targeted ads. No personal information about the user’s identity is processed at any time.

If you don’t agree with the tracking of your behavior by Microsoft as described above, you can reject the cookie which is necessary for tracking. For instance, this can be done by browser settings that generally decline automatic setting of cookies.

Facebook Pixel enables verification of whether a user was redirected to our website after clicking on our Facebook Ads. Facebook Pixel uses, among other things, cookies, which are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of your web browser on your end device. If you are logged in to Facebook with your user account, the visit to our online offer is noted in your user account.

According to our knowledge, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the relevant part of our website or clicked on an ad from us.

You can make settings regarding which types of advertisements are displayed to you within Facebook on the following Facebook website: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.
