§ 11 Use of Google Analytics

(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc.  ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.  The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before this happens. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet.

(2) The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

(3) You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can additionally prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie and related to the usage of the website (incl. your IP address) for Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()".  This allows IP addresses to be processed in a shortened form, thus excluding the possibility of personal references. If the data collected about you contains a personal reference, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is therefore deleted immediately.

(5) We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website.  We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

[(7) This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out using a user ID.  You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in your customer account under "My data", "personal data"].

§ 12 Use of social media plug-ins

(1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook und Instagram. We use the so-called two-click solution.  This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plugin by the initial letter or the logo on the box. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button.  Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider will receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer.  In addition, the data mentioned under § 2 of this declaration is transmitted. In the case of Facebook, the IP address will be anonymized immediately after the data is collected, according to the respective providers in Germany. Thus, by activating the plug-in, personal data is transmitted from you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (with US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser's security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box.

(2) We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the collected data by the plug-in provider.

(3) The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of providing needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.  You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider in order to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with the social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

(4) The data is passed on regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, the data we collect from you will be assigned directly to your existing account with the plug-in provider.  If you click on the activated button and, for example, link to the page,  the plug-in provider will also save this information in your user account and share it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as you can then avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

(5) Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the following data protection declarations of these providers. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy.

For the evaluations we link the data mentioned in § 2 and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID.  With the data thus obtained, we create a user profile to tailor the newsletter to your individual interests. In doing so, we record when you read our newsletters, which links you click on and deduce your personal interests. We link this data to actions you take on our website.

Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield,  https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

§ 18 Use of Google Adwords Conversion

(1) We use the offer of Google Adwords to draw attention to our attractive offers by means of advertising material (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites.  In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are.  In this way, we pursue the interest of displaying advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.

(2) These advertising materials are delivered by Google via so-called "Ad Servers".  For this purpose, we use Ad Server Cookies, through which certain parameters can be measured to measure success, such as the display of the ads or clicks by users.  If you reach our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords will store a cookie in your PC.  These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. . For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.

(3) These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser.  If a user visits certain pages on an Adwords client's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the client will be able to recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page.  Each Adwords client is assigned a different cookie. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of Adwords customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the advertising measures mentioned above. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. These evaluations enable us to identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material, in particular we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information.

(4) Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of these tools and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will find out your IP address and save it.

(5) You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various ways:
a) by adjusting your browser software accordingly, in particular by suppressing third-party cookies, so that you do not receive any ads from third-party providers;
b) by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com",  https://www.google.de/settings/ads, whereby this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies;
c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulation campaign "About Ads" via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies;
 d) by permanently deactivating them in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers via the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.

(6) The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO. Further information on data protection at Google can be found here: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html.

§ 19 Remarketing

Besides Adwords Conversion we use the Google Remarketing application. This is a procedure with which we would like to address you again.  By using this application, our advertisements can be shown to you after visiting our website during your further internet use. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, which are used by Google to record and evaluate your usage behaviour when visiting various websites. In this way Google can determine your previous visit to our website. A combination of the data collected in the course of remarketing with your personal data, which may be stored by Google, does not take place by Google according to its own statements. In particular, according to Google, pseudonymisation is used in remarketing.

§ 20 Facebook Custom Audiences

(1) The website also uses the remarketing function "Custom Audiences" of Facebook Inc.  ("Facebook").  This allows users of the website to be presented with interest-related advertisements ("Facebook Ads") when visiting the social network Facebook or other websites that also use the procedure. In this way, we pursue the interest in displaying advertisements that are of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you.

(2) Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Facebook server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Facebook through the use of these tools and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our Internet presence or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will find out and save your IP address and other identifying features.

(3) The deactivation of the "Facebook Custom Audiences" function is [here and] for logged-in users at https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads# possible.

(4) The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO.  Further information on data processing by Facebook is available at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

§ 21 A/B-Testing

(1) This website also carries out analyses of user behaviour via so-called A/B testing. In doing so, we can display our websites with slightly different contents, depending on the profile assignment.  This enables us to analyse our offer, improve it regularly and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for A/B testing is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

(2) For this analysis, cookies (for more details see § 3) are stored on your computer.  The information collected in this way is stored by the responsible person exclusively on his server in Germany.  You can prevent the evaluation by deleting existing cookies and preventing the storage of cookies.  If you prevent the storage of cookies, we point out that you may not be able to use our website to its full extent.  The prevention of the storage of cookies is possible through the settings in your browser.  The prevention of the use of A/B testing is possible by [removing the following check mark and thus activating the opt-out plug-in:].

(3) Before the analyses are carried out, the IP addresses are further processed in a shortened form, so that a direct personal reference can be excluded. The IP address transmitted by your browser is not merged with other data collected by us.
