Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet.

Social media and other third-party services

§ 3 Integration of YouTube videos

(1) We have integrated YouTube videos into our online offer, which are stored at http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all integrated in “extended data protection mode”, i.e. no data about you as a user is transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos will the data mentioned in paragraph 2 be transferred. We have no influence on this data transfer. With the integration of YouTube videos, we are pursuing our interest in making our website more interesting and attractive for our visitors and in achieving a better presentation of content or facts. The legal basis for the use of the plug-in is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO.

(2) By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have called up the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data mentioned under Art. 5 of this declaration is transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you don’t want your profile to be associated with YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of providing needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.

Online Advertising

§ 4 Use of Google Adwords Conversion / Remarketing

(1) We use the offer of Google Adwords to draw attention to our attractive offers by means of advertising material (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. 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 displaying advertising that is of interest to you, increasing the attractiveness of our website for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO.

(2) These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called “Ad Servers”. For this purpose, we use Ad Server Cookies, by means of which certain parameters can be measured to measure success, such as the display of the ads or clicks by the users. If you reach our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords will store a cookie in your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, 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.

(3) These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages on an Adwords client’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the client will be able to recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Adwords client is assigned a different cookie. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of Adwords customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the advertising measures mentioned above. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. These evaluations enable us to identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material, in particular we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information.

(4) Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of these tools 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 advertisement 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, it is possible that the provider will find out your IP address and save it.

(5) You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various ways:

a) by adjusting your browser software accordingly, in particular by suppressing third-party cookies, so that you do not receive any ads from third-party providers,

b) by disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, this setting will be cleared when you delete your cookies,

c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulation campaign “About Ads” via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies,

d) by permanently deactivating it in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.

(6) Further information on data protection at Google can be found here: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html. Alternatively, you can visit the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at http://www.networkadvertising.org. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

§ 5 Use of Microsoft Bing Ads

(1) We use the Microsoft Bing Ads offer to draw attention to our attractive offers by means of advertising on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. In this way, we track the interest in displaying advertising that is of interest to you, increase the attractiveness of our website for you and achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO.

(2) These advertising materials are delivered by Microsoft via appropriate servers. For this purpose, we use cookies by which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the fade-in of the advertisements or clicks by the users, can be measured. If you reach our website via a Bing ad, Bing Ads will store a cookie in your PC. These cookies usually expire 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 contacted) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.

(3) These cookies enable Microsoft to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages on a Bing Ads customer’s site and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Microsoft and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Bing Ads customer is assigned a different cookie. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked on Bing Ads customers’ Web sites. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical analysis from Microsoft. These analyses enable us to identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material, in particular we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information.

(4) Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Microsoft server. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Microsoft through the use of these tools and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Bing Ads, Microsoft receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Microsoft service, Microsoft can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Microsoft or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will find out and save your IP address.

(5) There are several ways you can prevent this tracking process from taking place:

a) by adjusting your browser software accordingly, in particular by suppressing third-party cookies, so that you do not receive any advertisements from third-party providers,

b) by disabling personalized ads from Bing Ads by setting an opt-out cookie on https://advertise.bingads.microsoft.com/de-de/ressourcen/richtlinien/personalisierte-anzeigen, this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies,

c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulation campaign “About Ads” via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies.

Alternatively, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) website at http://www.networkadvertising.org.
