Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a Web-analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses what are referred to as “cookies” – text files that are stored on your computer, and which enable your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie of your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event of IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be shortened in advance by Google within member states of the European Union and in other treaty states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there only in exceptional circumstances. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on your website activities and to provide the website operator with additional services associated with website use and Internet usage. The IP address communicated by your browser for the purpose of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. You can prevent the storing of cookies through the settings in your browser’s software. However, we would advise you that in such an instance you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) at Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin under the following link. Given the discussion around the use of analysis tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to advise you that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymiseIP()” and IP addresses are therefore only further processed when shortened to prevent direct personal references. Please click on this special link for browsers on mobile devices to prevent the anonymised collection by Google Analytics on this website with your browser in the future using a so-called “cookies opt-out “.
Facebook, Custom Audiences and Facebook Marketing Services
Due to our legitimate interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer and for these purposes within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f. of the GDPR we use the so-called “Facebook pixel” of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are a resident of the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law.
With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is on the one hand able to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the presentation of advertisements (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display our Facebook ads only to Facebook users who have shown an interest in our website or who have specific characteristics (e. g. interests in certain topics or products determined by the websites visited) that we submit to Facebook (so-called “custom audiences”). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to make sure that our Facebook ads are in line with the potential interest of users and do not have a nuisance effect. Using the Facebook pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion tracking”).
The Facebook pixel is directly integrated into our website by Facebook and can store a so-called cookie, i. e. a small file, on your device. If you then log in to Facebook or visit Facebook when you are logged in, your visit to our online offer will be noted in your profile. The data collected about you is anonymous for us, i. e. it does not allow us to draw conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that it can be linked to the respective user profile and used by Facebook as well as for its own market research and advertising purposes. If we transfer data to Facebook for comparison purposes, it is encrypted locally in the browser and only then sent to Facebook via a secure https connection. This is done with the sole purpose of matching the data encrypted by Facebook.
Furthermore, when using the Facebook pixel, we use the additional function “advanced matching”, in which inventory data such as telephone numbers, e-mail addresses or users’ Facebook IDs is transmitted to Facebook (encrypted), but solely to create target groups (“Custom Audiences”). Users agree our use of the “advanced matching” and the related processing of their data.
Based on our legitimate interests, we also use the “Custom Audiences from File” function of the social network Facebook, Inc. in which case inventory data (phone numbers, email addresses, Facebook IDs) will be uploaded to Facebook. The upload process is encrypted. The upload serves solely to identify recipients of our Facebook ads. We want to ensure that the ads are only displayed to users who are interested in our information and services. Users agree our use of the ” Custom Audiences from File” function and the related processing of their data.
Facebook’s processing of the data is governed by Facebooks Data Usage Policy. Accordingly, general instructions on how to display Facebook ads, in the Facebook Data Usage Policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. For specific information and details about the Facebook pixel and how it works, please visit the Facebook Help Center: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.
You may object to the collection by the Facebook pixel and use of your data to display Facebook ads. To set what kind of ads you see on Facebook, you can go to the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions on how to set up use-based advertising: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings are platform-independent, i. e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
