4. Analysis tools and advertising

Google AdWords and Google ConversionTracking

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion-tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion-tracking. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser stores on the user’s computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.
Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversions statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion-tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion-tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by deactivating the Google conversion-tracking cookie via your Internet browser under User Settings easily. They will then not be included in the conversion-tracking statistics.
The storage of “conversion-cookies” and the use of this tracking tool are based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.
More information about Google AdWords and Google conversion-tracking can be found in Google’s privacy policy: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Facebook Pixel

Our website uses the visitor action pixel of Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) for conversion measurement.
In this way, the behavior of site visitors can be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook advertisement. As a result, the effectiveness of Facebook ads can be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures can be optimized.
The data collected is anonymous for us as the operator of this website, we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook Data Use Policy. This allows Facebook to enable the placement of advertisements on Facebook pages as well as outside of Facebook. This use of the data cannot be influenced by us as the site operator.
The use of Facebook pixels is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures, including social media.
In Facebook’s privacy policy you will find further information on the protection of your privacy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

6. Plugins and Tools

YouTube with enhanced privacy

Our website uses plugins from the YouTube website. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
We use YouTube in enhanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the transfer of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network for example, regardless of whether you are actually watching a video.
As soon as you start a YouTube video on our website, a connection to YouTube’s servers is established. The YouTube server is informed which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, YouTube can store various cookies on your device after starting a video. With the help of these cookies, YouTube may receive information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud attempts. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
If necessary, further data processing operations may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no influence.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
