  1. Basic information on data processing

  1. Cookies & reach measurement

Cookies are information transmitted from our web server or third-party web servers to users’ web browsers and stored there for later retrieval. Users are being informed about the use of cookies in the context of pseudonymous range measurement by means of this privacy policy.

If users do not want cookies stored on their computer, they will be asked to disable the option in their browser’s system settings. Saved cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser.

There is a possibility to manage many commercial online advertising cookies via the US website http://www.aboutads.info/choices or the EU page http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad -choices / .

  1. Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the users are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offering by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offering and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and internet usage. In this case, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the users will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

The IP address submitted by the user’s browser will not be merged with other data provided by Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; Users may also prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer as well as the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http: // tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

For more information about Google’s use of data, hiring and opt-out options, please visit Google’s websites: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/partners (“Google’s use of your data when you use websites or our partners’ apps “), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (” Use of data for promotional purposes “), http://www.google.com/settings/ads (” Managing information provided by Google used to show you ads “) and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences (” Determine which ads Google shows you “).

  1. Google Re / Marketing Services

We use the Google Inc. Marketing and Remarketing Services (“Google Marketing Services”), 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”).

Google Marketing Services allow us to better target advertisements for and on our website, so that we only present ads to users that potentially match their interests. If a user is shown ads for products he’s been interested in on other websites, this is called remarketing. For these purposes, when Google our other websites that are running Google Marketing Services are activated, Google codes and so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, etc.) are added to the website as “Web Beacons”) and immediately  incorporated into the website. With their help, the user is provided with an individual cookie, i. a small file is saved (instead of cookies, comparable technologies can also be used). The cookies can be set by different domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. In this file it is noted which web pages the user visited, for what content he is interested and what offers he 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. The IP address of the users is also recorded, whereby in the context of Google Analytics we announce that the IP address is shortened within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, and only in exceptional cases transmitted  to Google servers in the US as a whole and shortened there. The IP address will not be merged with data of the user within other offers from Google. This information above may also be associated with such information from other sources. If the user then visits other websites, the ads displayed can be tailored to him according to his interests.

The users data are processed pseudonymously in the context of the Google marketing services. That means that Google does not store and processes e.g. the name or e-mail address of the users, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. From Googles perspective, 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 by “DoubleClick” is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the United States.

Google marketing services we use include the online advertising program “Google AdWords”. In the case of Google AdWords, each advertiser receives a different “conversion cookie”. Cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords advertisers’ websites. The information collected through the cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Advertisers will see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.

We embed third-party ads based on Google’s DoubleClick marketing service. DoubleClick uses cookies, which allow Google and its affiliate websites to serve ads based on users’ visits to this site or other sites on the Internet.

We also engage third-party ads based on the Google AdSense marketing service. AdSense uses cookies, which allow Google and its affiliate websites to serve ads based on users’ visits to this site or other sites on the Internet.

Another Google marketing service we use is the Google Tag Manager, which allows additional Google analytics and marketing services to be integrated into our website (eg, AdWords, DoubleClick, or Google Analytics). ,

For more information about Google’s data usage for marketing, see the overview page: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads
Google’s Privacy Policy is available at: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy .

  1. Facebook social pluginsOur online offering uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile, the terms “Like”, “Like” or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When a user invokes a feature of this online offering that includes such a plugin, their device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the device of the user and incorporated into the online offer. During this process, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform the users according to our knowledge.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example, press the Like button or leave a comment, the information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonym
