  1. Analysis tools, remarketing and targeting
  1. Google Analytics
  1. Nature and scope of the processing of personal data

We use the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service that uses cookies that allow an analysis of your use of the website. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data about the website from which a data subject came to a website (so-called referrer), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page was viewed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

We use the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of your Internet connection is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our Internet pages is from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. A personal reference can thus be excluded. Insofar as the data collected about you is related to a person, this is therefore immediately excluded and the personal data is thus immediately deleted.

  1. Purposes and legal basis of processing

The processing of your personal data enables us to analyze your surfing behavior. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to continuously improve our website and its user-friendliness. In these purposes also lies our legitimate interest in the processing of the data according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. By anonymizing the IP address, your interest in the protection of your personal data is sufficiently taken into account.

  1. Recipients or categories of recipients

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. User Terms: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, Privacy Policy Overview: http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, and Privacy Policy: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

  1. Transfer to third countries or interational organizations

For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield. 

  1. Storage period and, if applicable, criteria for determining the storage period

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our recording purposes. Due to long sales processes and a customer journey lasting up to 2 years, we keep our data for 26 months.

 

  1. Possibility of objection and removal

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on your information technology system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, you have the option to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to a use of this website as well as the processing of this data by Google and to prevent such a processing.

To do this, you must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to Internet pages may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as an objection. If your information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the browser add-on must be reinstalled in order to deactivate Google Analytics. Provided that the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person attributable to his or her sphere of control, there is the option of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on.

However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in your customer account under "My data", "Personal data".

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. Through this service, website tags can be managed through an interface. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. The Google Tag Manager triggers the services described in 7. and 8. which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags, provided these are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

The so-called "Facebook pixel" is used within our online offer. When you call up our website, the personal data mentioned in 4.1 is transmitted to Facebook.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Facebook server.

For more information on data processing by Facebook, please visit https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

  1. Purposes and legal bases of processing

With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the display of ads (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of users and do not have a harassing effect. Furthermore, with the help of the Facebook pixel, we can track the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion.) "). This (analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer) is also our legitimate interest; the processing of personal data takes place pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

In addition, users who provide us with feedback about our website using the "Feedback Poll" via Hotjar have the opportunity to provide us with their email address.

Providing the email address is voluntary and can be skipped by the user at any time.

 

  1. Legal basis and purpose of data processing

The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interest).

  1. Google Adwords
  1. Nature and scope of the processing of personal data

We use the Google Adwords service to draw attention to our attractive offers on external websites with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Adwords).

These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called "Ad Servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. The unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.

These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of the website of an Adwords customer and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Adwords customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. 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 this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is the possibility that the provider learns your IP address and stores it.

 

  1. Purposes and legal basis of processing

The information obtained with the help of the "conversion cookies" is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. We learn through these statistics the total number of users who clicked on our ad and also which pages of our website were subsequently accessed by the respective user. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. In this way, we pursue the interest of optimizing the design of our website, displaying advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.

This is also our legitimate interest; the legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
