Insofar as another legal basis is mentioned according to the DSGVO, the storage or setting of the cookie or the reading out of information is carried out on the basis of the exception according to § 25 para. 2 no. 2 TTDSG.

On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to us.

  • JavaScript
  • device fingerprint

 

Collected data

When using the Service, the following data is collected:

  • browser language
  • browser type
  • screen resolution
  • device operating system
  • interaction data

We also use the “demographic characteristics and interests” function of Google Analytics, which enables us to obtain reports on age, gender and interest categories. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as from visitor data from third-party providers and cannot be assigned to any specific person.

We have adjusted the configuration of Google Analytics so that only the website analysis function is used, unless separate consent has been given for the advertising functions.

Legal basis

The legal basis for data processing is your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 Para. 1 TTDSG.

The configuration of the “Google Analytics advertising functions” is independent of this and is described separately in the corresponding sections, insofar as these are also used on this website.

Disclosure to third-party countries

The information collected is generally transferred to a server of the service provider in the USA and stored there.

For the transfer of data to the USA, we have agreed with Google Ireland Limited on the standard data protection clauses approved by the EU Commission, and in these clauses we have also agreed on the implementation of appropriate protective measures for the specific case, which may also include encryption of the data, depending on the level of protection required.

With the help of the Facebook Pixel, your behavior on our website can be tracked after you have been redirected to our website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows us to evaluate the effectiveness of our Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes and to optimize our future advertising efforts.

The data collected is anonymous for us as the operator of this website, we cannot draw any conclusions about your identity. 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 Use Policy. This allows Facebook to enable the placement of advertisements on Facebook pages as well as outside of Facebook. This use of the data cannot be influenced by us as the website operator.

Furthermore, the website uses the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” to be able to address you again within 6 months. This enables us to display interest-based advertisements (“Facebook Ads”) to you following your visit to our website in the context of your visit to the social network Facebook or other websites that also use this procedure. In this way, we pursue the interest of showing you advertising that is of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you. The use of our website by you takes place without us being able to draw conclusions about you as a person. It is therefore completely anonymous.

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 this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding web page of our website, or clicked on an ad 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, it is possible that the provider will learn and store your IP address and other identifying features.
