Use of External Tools on our Website
We have integrated diverse tools of different companies into our website enabling us to evaluate your user behavior or to establish links to other websites. For this purpose, we have concluded separate contracts on order processing aiming at ensuring the protection of your personal data with the companies named below.
We cooperate with the following service providers:
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is enabled on this website, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or within other Contracting States to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and internet usage for the website operator.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. We shall store the data acquired through the tool Google Analytics for a period of 14 months. After the expiration of this term, the data will be deleted.
You can prevent cookies from being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software; however, we wish to point out that by doing so, you may not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies concerning your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIp”. As a result, IP addresses are further processed in truncated form, hence direct reference to a person can be ruled out. If the data collected about you is personally identifiable, it will be excluded immediately and the personal data promptly deleted.
We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. Based on the statistics gained this way, we can 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 submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Article 6 (1) page 1 lit. f GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation].
Use of Facebook Pixel, Custom Audiences and Facebook Conversion
For the analysis and optimization of our offer and the realization of needs-based promotional activities, we
use what is known as „Facebook Pixel“ of the social network Facebook, operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA or in case you are domiciled in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).
We have concluded an Agreement Regarding the Joint Responsibility During Personal Data Collection and Processing with Facebook in the sense of Article 26 GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation]. For more information, click on the link referring to the Joint Processing of Personal Data.
Facebook has submitted to the Privacy Shield Agreement:
On one hand, Facebook Pixel enables Facebook to show our advertisings to visitors of our online offering and thus identify them as target group for displaying advertisings (so-called “Facebook Ads”). Accordingly, we use Facebook Pixel for displaying the switched Facebook-Ads only to users that have shown interest in our online offering or that have certain characteristics (e.g., interest in certain topics or products determined by way of visited websites) and which we will transfer to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”). By means of Facebook Pixel, we would like to also ensure that our Facebook-Ads correspond to the user’s potential interest and are not of molesting effect. With the help of Facebook Pixel, we can furthermore understand the effectiveness of
Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes by way of checking whether a user was forwarded to our website after having clicked on the Facebook advertisement (so-called “conversion”).
The processing of data by Facebook takes place within the scope of Facebook’s Directive for the Use of Data. Accordingly, general instructions on the depiction of Facebook Ads can be obtained from Facebook’s Directive for the Use of Data: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
You will find special information and details regarding Facebook-Pixel and its functioning in the Facebook Help Section: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.
You may oppose the aforementioned collection and usage of your data for depiction of Facebook Ads by Facebook Pixel. Settings as to the kinds of advertisements displayed to you by Facebook can be downloaded from the following website provided by Facebook. You may follow the setting instructions for usage-based advertising given there: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings are made platform-independently, meaning they will be applied to all devices such as desktop computers or mobile equipment.
This data processing takes places on the basis of Article 6 (1) page 1 lit. f GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation] for purposes of optimization our offer.
Use of Social Media Plug-Ins
We use the social media plug-in of the YouTube company. In doing so, we use what is called the two-click solution. This means that if you visit our site, initially no personal data will be passed on to the providers of these plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the marking on the box above its initial letter or by the logo. We offer you the possibility to directly communicate with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it will the plug-in provider receive the information that you accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. By activating the plug-in, your personal data is transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (for US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data particularly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the greyed-out box using your browser’s security settings.
We have no influence on the data collected and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, or the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.
The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you in form of user profiles and uses these for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such evaluation is especially made (also for users who are not logged in) to display customized advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles. You must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.
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, your data collected with us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. When you operate the activated button and link the page, for example, the plug-in provider will also store this information in your user account and publicly communicate this to your contacts. We recommend that you regularly log out after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as this way you can avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.
For more information on the purpose and extent of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the Privacy Statements of these providers provided below. Here, you will also find further information on your respective rights and settings options for protecting your privacy.
Legal basis for the use of plug-ins is Article 6 (1) page 1 lit. f GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation], namely the optimization of our offers.
