Use of Google AdSense

(1) This website uses the online advertising service Google AdSense to present advertising that has been tailored to your particular interests. We intend to only show you advertising that might be of interest to you, in order to make our website more attractive to you. For this purpose, statistical information will be collected and processed by our advertising partners.

Use of Google Adwords Conversion

(1) We use Google Adwords to draw the attention to our attractive offers on third-party websites. We use the advertising campaign data to evaluate the success of the individual campaigns. We intend to only show you advertising that might be of interest to you, in order to make our website more attractive to you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.

(2) The advertising tools are provided by Google Ad Servers. We use Ad Server cookies to measure certain success parameters, such as fade-in of advertisements or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords will place a cookie on your device. These cookies are generally no longer valid after 30 days and are not aimed at identifying you. The parameters stored in connection with these cookies are usually the Unique Cookie ID, the number of Ad Impression per placement (frequency), the latest impression (relevant for post-view conversions), and opt-out information (information that the user no longer wants to be contacted).

(3) These cookies enable Google to recognize your Internet browser. When a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer’s website and the cookie on the user’s device is still valid, Google and the customer can see that the user has clicked on the advertisement and has been routed to the respective page. A different cookie is allocated to each Adword customer. Therefore, cookies cannot be traced back via Adwords customer’s websites. We do not collect or process personal data in the context of the aforementioned advertising measures. Google merely provides us with statistical evaluations. These evaluations serve to identify the effectiveness of the respective advertising campaigns. We do not receive any other data from the advertising tools, and we cannot identify any users by means of this information.

(4) Under the respective marketing tools, your browser will automatically establish a connection to the Google server.  We have no control of the scope and further use of the data collected by Google via this tool. Our information to you, therefore, reflects our current knowledge. Via the integration of AdWords Conversion, Google is notified that you have accessed the respective part of our website or that you have clicked on our advertisement. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can allocate your visit to your account. If you are not registered with or logged in on Google, the provider may still identify and save your IP address.

(5) You may prevent being tracked via different methods: a) change your browser settings. Suppressing third-party cookies will prevent third-party advertising; b) deactivate cookies for conversion tracking via your browser settings; “www.googleadservices.com” can be blocked  http://www.google.de/settings/ads. This setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; c) deactivate the providers’ interest-based advertisements, which form part of the “About Ads” self-regulation campaign, via http://www.aboutads.info/choices. This setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; d) permanently deactivate Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Google Chrome in your browser via http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that, in this event, you may not be able to access all functions of this offer.

(6) The legal basis of the processing of your data is Art. 6 Clause 1 Sent. 1 lit. f GDPR. Please find further information on Google data protection at http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html.

Google is registered under the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Remarketing

In addition to Adwords Conversion, we use Google Remarketing. This is a mechanism to contact you again after your visit to our website, showing you our advertisements during your use of the Internet. The mechanism uses cookies saved on your browser, via which Google collects and evaluates your user behavior. Google can, thus, identify your prior visit to our website. According to Google, the data collected in the context of remarketing will not be combined with any personal data Google might have previously stored. Google uses pseudonymization in remarketing.

DoubleClick by Google

(1) This website uses the online marketing tool DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick uses cookies to show advertisements that are relevant to the users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent users from being shown the same advertisements more than once. Google uses the cookie ID to check what advertisements have been shown on which browser in order to prevent them from being shown repeatedly. In addition, DoubleClick can identify so-called conversions relating to advertising. This is the case, for instance, if a user sees a DoubleClick advertisement and uses the same browser at a later time to access the advertiser’s website to make a purchase. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not contain personal data.

(2) Under the respective marketing tools, your browser will automatically establish a connection to the Google server. We have no control of the scope and further use of the data collected by Google via this tool. Our information to you, therefore, reflects our current knowledge. Via the integration of DoubleClick, Google is notified that you have accessed the respective part of our website or that you have clicked on our advertisement. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can allocate your visit to your account. If you are not registered with or logged in on Google, the provider may still identify and save your IP address.

(3) You may prevent being tracked via different methods: a) change your browser settings. Suppressing third-party cookies will prevent third-party advertising; b) deactivate cookies for conversion tracking via your browser settings; “www.googleadservices.com” can be blocked  http://www.google.de/settings/ads. This setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; c) deactivate the providers’ interest-based advertisements, which form part of the “About Ads” self-regulation campaign, via http://www.aboutads.info/choices. This setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; d) permanently deactivate Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Google Chrome in your browser via http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that, in this event, you may not be able to access all functions of this offer.

(4) The legal basis of the processing of your data is Art. 6 Clause 1 Sent. 1 lit. f GDPR. Further information about DoubleClick by Google can be found at https://www.google.de/doubleclick and http://support.google.com/adsense/answer/2839090; General information about Google’s data protection policy can be found at https://www.google. de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
