8) Online marketing

8.1 Facebook Pixel for the creation of Custom Audiences (with Cookie Consent Tool)

Within our online offer, the so-called "Facebook Pixel" of the social network Facebook is used, which is operated by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook").

If a user clicks on an advertisement placed by us and played on Facebook, an addition is added to the URL of our linked page by Facebook Pixel. If our site allows data to be shared with Facebook via Pixel, this URL parameter is inscribed in the user's browser via a cookie that our linked site sets itself. This cookie is then read by Facebook Pixel and enables the data to be forwarded to Facebook.

With the help of the Facebook Pixel, it is possible for Facebook, on the one hand, to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook Ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect. This allows us to further evaluate the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by tracking whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion").

The data collected is anonymous for us, so it does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook data usage policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). The data may enable Facebook and its partners to place advertisements on and outside of Facebook.

The data processing associated with the use of the Facebook Pixel is only carried out with your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website.


8.2 - Google Ads Conversion Tracking

This website uses the online advertising programme "Google Ads" and, within the framework of Google Ads, the conversion tracking of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). We use Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers on external websites with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Adwords). We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. Our aim is to show you advertising that is of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of the advertising costs incurred.

The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked across Google Ads clients' websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Clients learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. The use of Google Ads may also result in the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

Details on the processing triggered by Google Ads Conversion Tracking and on Google's handling of data from websites can be found here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites.

All of the processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for reading out information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website.

You can also permanently object to the setting of cookies by Google Ads conversion tracking by downloading and installing the Google browser plug-in available at the following link:

9) Web analytics services

Google Analytics 4

This website uses Google Analytics 4, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"), to analyse the use of websites.

When using Google Analytics 4, so-called "cookies" are used as standard. Cookies are text files that are stored on your terminal device and enable an analysis of your use of a website. The information collected by cookies about your use of the website (including the IP address transmitted by your terminal device, shortened by the last few digits, see below) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored and processed there. This may also result in the transmission of information to the servers of Google LLC, a company based in the USA, where the information is further processed.

When using Google Analytics 4, the IP address transmitted by your terminal device when you use the website is always collected and processed automatically and by default only in an anonymised manner, so that the information collected cannot be directly related to a person. This automatic anonymisation is carried out by Google shortening the IP address transmitted by your terminal device within member states of the European Union (EU) or other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA) by the last digits.

Google uses this and other information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on your website activities and usage behaviour and to provide us with other services related to your website and internet usage. In this context, the IP address transmitted and shortened by your terminal device within the scope of Google Analytics 4 will not be merged with other data from Google. The data collected in the context of the use of Google Analytics 4 will be stored for 2 months and then deleted.

Google Analytics 4 also enables the creation of statistics with statements about the age, gender and interests of website users on the basis of an evaluation of interest-based advertising and with the inclusion of third-party information via a special function, the so-called "demographic characteristics". This makes it possible to determine and distinguish user groups of the website for the purpose of targeting marketing measures. However, data collected via the "demographic characteristics" cannot be assigned to a specific person and thus also not to you personally. This data collected via the "demographic characteristics" function is kept for two months and then deleted.

Alle oben beschriebenen Verarbeitungen, insbesondere das Setzen von Google Analytics-Cookies für die Speicherung und das Auslesen von Informationen auf dem von Ihnen für die Nutzung der Website verwendeten Endgerät, erfolgen nur dann, wenn Sie uns hierfür gemäß Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO Ihre ausdrückliche Einwilligung erteilt haben. Ohne Ihre Einwilligung unterbleibt der Einsatz von Google Analytics 4 während Ihrer Nutzung der Website. Sie können Ihre einmal erteilte Einwilligung jederzeit mit Wirkung für die Zukunft widerrufen. Um Ihren Widerruf auszuüben, deaktivieren Sie diesen Dienst bitte über das auf der Website bereitgestellte „Cookie-Consent-Tool“.

Im Zusammenhang mit dieser Website wird als Erweiterung von Google Analytics 4 auch die Funktion „UserIDs“ eingesetzt. Durch die Vergabe von individuellen UserIDs können wir geräteübergreifende Berichte (Reports) durch Google erstellen lassen (sog. „Cross Device Tracking“). Dies bedeutet, dass Ihr Nutzungsverhalten bei Erteilung Ihrer entsprechenden Einwilligung in den Einsatz von Google Analytics 4 gemäß Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO auch geräteübergreifend analysiert werden kann, falls Sie durch Ihre Registrierung auf dieser Website ein persönliches Konto eingerichtet haben und mit Ihren diesbezüglichen Anmeldedaten in Ihrem persönlichen Konto auf verschiedenen Endgeräten angemeldet sind. Die auf diese Weise erfassten Daten zeigen unter anderem, auf welchem Endgerät Sie das erste Mal auf eine Anzeige geklickt haben und auf welchem Endgerät die diesbezügliche Conversion erfolgt ist.

Im Zusammenhang mit dieser Website wird als Erweiterung von Google Analytics 4 auch der Dienst Google Signals eingesetzt. Mit Google Signals können wir geräteübergreifende Berichte (Reports) durch Google erstellen lassen (sog. „Cross Device Tracking“). Sofern Sie in Ihren Einstellungen in Ihrem Google-Konto die „personalisierten Anzeigen“ aktiviert und Ihre internetfähigen Endgeräte mit Ihrem Google-Konto verknüpft haben, kann Google das Nutzungsverhalten bei Erteilung Ihrer Einwilligung in den Einsatz von Google Analytics 4 gemäß Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO geräteübergreifend analysieren und hierauf basierende Datenbankmodelle erstellen. Berücksichtigt werden dabei die Anmeldungen und Gerätetypen aller Website-Nutzer, die in einem Google-Konto angemeldet waren und eine Conversion ausgeführt haben. Die Daten zeigen unter anderem, auf welchem Endgerät Sie das erste Mal auf eine Anzeige geklickt haben und auf welchem Endgerät die diesbezügliche Conversion erfolgt ist. Wir erhalten hierbei keine personenbezogenen Daten von Google, sondern lediglich auf Basis von Google Signals erstellte Statistiken. Sie haben die Möglichkeit, die Funktion „personalisierte Anzeigen“ in den Einstellungen Ihres Google-Kontos zu deaktivieren und damit die geräteübergreifende Analyse im Zusammenhang mit Google Signals abzustellen. Folgen Sie hierzu den Hinweisen auf dieser Seite: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de

Weitergehende Informationen zu Google Signals finden Sie unter folgendem Link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7532985?hl=de

Wir haben mit Google für unsere Nutzung von Google Analytics 4 einen sog. Auftragsverarbeitungsvertrag abgeschlossen, durch den Google dazu verpflichtet ist, die Daten unserer Website- Nutzer zu schützen und nicht an Dritte weiterzugeben.

Zur Gewährleistung der Einhaltung des europäischen Datenschutzniveaus auch bei der etwaigen Übermittlung von Daten aus der EU bzw. dem EWR in die USA und den möglichen weiteren Verarbeitungen dort beruft sich Google auf die sog. Standardvertragsklauseln der Europäischen Kommission, die wir mit Google vertraglich vereinbart haben.

10) Retargeting/ Remarketing/ Referral advertising

Pinterest retargeting pixel

A pixel (Pinterest tag) of Pinterest Europe Ltd. (Palmerston House, 2nd Floor, Fenian Street, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Pinterest") is integrated on this website. With the help of the pixel, information about the surfing behaviour of website visitors can be collected, stored and evaluated in pseudonymised form. The information can be assigned to the person of the user with the aid of further information that Pinterest has stored about the user, e.g. due to the ownership of an account on the social network "Pinterest". Pinterest uses an algorithm to analyse the surfing behaviour and can then display targeted product recommendations as personalised advertising banners on the user's Pinterest account. Pinterest may also combine the information collected via the pixel with other information that Pinterest has collected via other websites and / or in connection with the use of the social network "Pinterest", and thus create pseudonymised usage profiles. In no case, however, can the information collected be used to personally identify visitors to this website.

All processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for reading out information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with future effect by deactivating this service in the "cookie consent tool" provided on the website.

Pinterest tag conversion tracking

This website uses the conversion tracking technology "Pinterest Tag" of Pinterest Europe Ltd, Palmerston House, 2nd Floor, Fenian Street, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Pinterest").

If you have reached our website from a pin on Pinterest, we set a cookie on your computer that interacts with a likewise implemented "tag" in the form of a JavaScript code from Pinterest. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device. These cookies lose their validity after 180 days and are not used for personal identification.

If the user is redirected from a pin on Pinterest to pages on this website and the cookie has not yet expired, the tag records certain user actions predefined by us and can track these (e.g. completed transactions, leads, search queries on the website, calls to product pages). When such an action is performed, your browser sends an HTTP request from the cookie to the Pinterest server via the Pinterest tag, with which certain information about the action (including the type of action, time, browser type of the end device) is transmitted.

Through this transmission, Pinterest can create statistics about the usage behaviour on our website after forwarding a Pinterest Pin, which serve us to optimise our offer.

However, we do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.

All processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for reading out information on the end device used, is only carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website.

TikTok Pixel

This website uses the "TikTok Pixel", a tracking technology of the social network "TikTok" of TikTok Technology Limited, 10 Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin, D02 T380, Ireland ("TikTok").

With the help of cookies (small text files that are stored on the end device used), information about the surfing behaviour on our website is collected in pseudonymised form, transmitted to TikTok, stored there and evaluated in order to then enable the playout of interest-based and personalised product recommendations on TikTok. The object of the information collected and processed pseudonymously in this way is basically the device ID, the device type, time stamp, the operating system used and the IP address. The information can be assigned to the person of the user with the help of further information that TikTok has stored about the user, e.g. due to the ownership of an account on the social network "TikTok". TikTok may also combine the information collected via the pixel with other information that TikTok has collected via other websites and/or in connection with the use of the social network "TikTok", and thus create pseudonymised usage profiles. In no case can the information collected be used to personally identify visitors to this website.

The TikTok Pixel further enables us to track the effectiveness of advertisements on TikTok. If the user is redirected from an ad on TikTok to pages on this website and the cookies have not yet expired, the pixel captures and can track certain user actions predefined by us (e.g. completed transactions, leads, searches on the website, views of product pages). When such an action is performed, your browser sends an HTTP request from the cookie to the TikTok server via the TikTok pixel, with which certain information about the action is transmitted. This transmission enables TikTok to compile statistics on usage behaviour on our website after forwarding from a TikTok ad, which we use to optimise our offer.

All processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for reading out information on the end device used, is only carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with future effect by deactivating this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website. We have concluded an order processing agreement with TikTok for the use of the TikTok Pixel, which obliges TikTok to protect the data of our site visitors and not to pass it on to third parties. TikTok generally transmits collected information outside the European Economic Area and relies on so-called standard data protection clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European level of data protection.

11) Tools and miscellaneous

Cookie consent tool

This website uses a so-called "cookie consent tool" to obtain effective user consent for cookies and cookie-based applications requiring consent. The "cookie consent tool" is displayed to users in the form of an interactive user interface when they access the page, on which consent for certain cookies and/or cookie-based applications can be given by ticking the appropriate box.

The duration of the storage of personal data is measured on the basis of the respective legal basis, the processing purpose and - if relevant - additionally on the basis of the respective statutory retention period (e.g. retention periods under commercial and tax law).

When processing personal data on the basis of explicit consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, this data is stored until the data subject revokes his/her consent.

If there are statutory retention periods for data that is processed within the scope of legal or quasi-legal obligations on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, this data will be routinely deleted after expiry of the retention periods, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of the contract and/or there is no justified interest on our part in continuing to store it.

When processing personal data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO, such data shall be stored until the data subject exercises his/her right to object pursuant to Art. 21(1) DSGVO, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

When processing personal data for the purpose of direct marketing on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO, such data shall be stored until the data subject exercises his or her right to object pursuant to Art. 21(2) DSGVO.

Unless otherwise stated in the other information in this declaration on specific processing situations, stored personal data will otherwise be deleted when it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
