6. Analysis of our website with Google Analytics
a. Facebook (visitor action pixel)
We use the "visitor action pixel" of Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or, if you are an EU resident, Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). The visitor action pixel allows us to track the behavior of users after they have been redirected to our website by clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion”). We can also use it to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous for us, that is, we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, and we are hereby informing you about this according to our knowledge. Facebook may link this information to your Facebook account and use it for its own promotional purposes, as outlined in Facebook's Data Usage Policy, see https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. The visitor action pixel is triggered by Facebook when you visit our website and can store a cookie on your device. If you then log on to Facebook or visit Facebook in a registered state, your visiting our offer will be noted in your profile. The data collected on you remains anonymous to us, so it does not provide us with any information about the identity of the user. However, Facebook stores and processes the data so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and can be used by Facebook as well as for its own market research and advertising purposes. This service is used on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1, lit. f) GDPR and serves our legitimate economic interests. You can object to the collection by the Facebook pixel and use of your data to display Facebook ads at the following address: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee to comply with European and Swiss data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
b. Google re-/marketing services
On our website we use marketing and remarketing services of Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). These services allow us to target advertisements more accurately to present ads of interest to users.
Remarketing shows users ads and products that have been found to be of interest on other sites on the Google Network. For these purposes, when our website is accessed by Google, a code is executed and so-called (re)marketing tags are integrated into the website. These store a unique cookie or comparable technology on the user's device. Cookies can be set by various domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. This file records which websites users have visited, what content they are interested in and what offers have been made. In addition, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visit time and further information about the use of the online offer are stored. The IP address of the users is also recorded, whereby we hereby inform within the framework of Google Analytics that the IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the agreement on the European Economic Area is reduced. Any user data will only be processed as pseudonymous data. Google does not store any names or e-mail addresses. All displayed ads are therefore not displayed specifically for one person, but for the owner of the cookie. This information is collected by Google and transmitted to and stored by servers in the USA.
One of the Google marketing services we use is Google AdWords, an online advertising platform. In the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords customer receives a different "conversion cookie". Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of Adwords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the Adwords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers can find out the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and been redirected to the page with a conversion tracking tag. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to identify users personally.
The legal basis for the use of this service is Art. 6 para. lit. f) GDPR. If you wish to object to interest-based advertising by Google marketing services, you can use the setting and opt-out options provided by Google: https://adssettings.google.com/.
Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement and thus provides an appropriate guarantee to comply with European and Swiss data protection laws (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

When you visit a page of our website containing a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Instagram's servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by the provider directly to your browser and integrated into the webpage. By integrating the plugin, the provider receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile with the relevant supplier or are not currently logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a server of the respective provider in the USA (or Germany) and stored there.
If you are logged in to one of the services, the providers can directly associate the visit to our site with your profile on Facebook, Google+, Twitter or Instagram. When you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the "Like" or the "Instagram" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the provider and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube or Linkedin social networks and displayed to your contacts. For the purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of data by the providers as well as your rights and settings options for protecting your privacy, please see the privacy policies of the providers.
