The Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) does not process any personal data of the users. With regard to the processing of users’ personal data, reference is made to the following information about Google services. Usage guidelines: https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC (“Google”), based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the user is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and the internet. Pseudonymous user profiles of users can be created from the processed data.

We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases.

The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other Google data. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; Users can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to their use of the online offer and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http: // tools .google.com / dlpage / gaoptout? hl = de.

The personal data of the users will be deleted or anonymized after 14 months.

Google Universal Analytics

We use Google Analytics in the form of “universal analytics”. “Universal Analytics” refers to a process by Google Analytics in which the user analysis is based on a pseudonymous user ID and a pseudonymous profile of the user is created with information from the use of different devices (so-called “cross-device tracking”) .

Google Adsense with non-personalized ads

We use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR) , USA, (“Google”).

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

We use the AdSense service, with the help of which advertisements are displayed on our website and we receive remuneration for their display or other use. For these purposes, usage data, such as the click on an advertisement and the user’s IP address are processed, the IP address being shortened by the last two digits. Therefore, the processing of user data is pseudonymized.

We use Adsense with non-personalized ads. The ads are not displayed based on user profiles. Non-personalized ads are not based on previous user behavior. When targeting, contextual information is used, including a rough (e.g. at the location level) geographic targeting based on the current location, the content on the current website or the app as well as current search terms. Google prevents any personalized targeting, including demographic targeting and targeting based on user lists.

Further information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options can be found in Google’s data protection declaration (https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads) and in the settings for the display of advertisements by Google (https: // adssettings.google.com/authenticated).

Google AdWords and conversion measurement

We use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR) , USA, (“Google”).

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

We use the online marketing process Google “AdWords” to place ads in the Google advertising network (e.g., in search results, in videos, on websites, etc.) so that they are displayed to users who have a presumed interest in the ads. This allows us to display ads for and within our online offer in a more targeted manner in order to only present users with ads that potentially correspond to their interests. If a user e.g. Displaying advertisements for products in which he was interested in other online offers is referred to as “remarketing”. For these purposes, when you visit our and other websites on which the Google advertising network is active, Google directly executes a code from Google and so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also as ” Web Beacons “) integrated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, i.e. a small file is saved (comparable technologies can be used instead of cookies). This file notes which websites the user has visited, what content he is interested in and which offers the user has clicked on, as well as technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information on the use of the online offer.

We also receive an individual “conversion cookie”. The information obtained with the help of cookies is used by Google to create conversion statistics for us. However, we only find out the anonymous total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.

The data of the users are processed pseudonymously within the Google advertising network. I.e. Google stores and processes e.g. not the user’s name or email address, but processes the relevant cookie-related data within pseudonymous user profiles. I.e. From Google’s perspective, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie holder, regardless of who this cookie holder is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected about the users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the USA.

Further information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options can be found in Google’s data protection declaration (https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads) and in the settings for the display of advertisements by Google (https: // adssettings.google.com/authenticated).

Google DoubleClick

We use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR) , USA, (“Google”).

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

We use the online marketing process Google “Doubleclick” to place advertisements in the Google advertising network (e.g., in search results, in videos, on websites, etc.). Double Click is characterized by the fact that ads are displayed in real time based on the presumed interests of the users. This allows us to display ads for and within our online offer in a more targeted manner in order to only present users with ads that potentially correspond to their interests. If a user e.g. Displaying advertisements for products in which he was interested in other online offers is referred to as “remarketing”. For these purposes, when you visit our and other websites on which the Google advertising network is active, Google directly executes a code from Google and so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also as ” Web Beacons “) integrated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, i.e. a small file is saved (comparable technologies can be used instead of cookies). This file notes which websites the user has visited, what content he is interested in and which offers the user has clicked on, as well as technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information on the use of the online offer.

The IP address of the users is also recorded, whereby this is shortened within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and is only transmitted in exceptional cases to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google may also combine the above information with such information from other sources. If the user then visits other websites, he can be shown advertisements tailored to him based on his presumed interests based on his user profile.

The data of the users are processed pseudonymously within the Google advertising network. I.e. Google stores and processes e.g. not the user’s name or email address, but processes the relevant cookie-related data within pseudonymous user profiles. I.e. From Google’s perspective, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie holder, regardless of who this cookie holder is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected by Google Marketing Services about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the United States.

Further information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options can be found in Google’s data protection declaration (https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads) and in the settings for the display of advertisements by Google (https: // adssettings.google.com/authenticated).

Facebook pixels, custom audiences and Facebook conversion

Due to our legitimate interests in analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer and for these purposes, our online offer includes the so-called “Facebook pixel” of the social network Facebook, which is provided by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025 , USA, or if you are based in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland is operated (“Facebook”).

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).

With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is able, on the one hand, to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to only display the Facebook ads we have placed 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 that are based on the visited Websites determined) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “custom audiences”). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we would also like to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a nuisance. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also understand the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were forwarded to our website after clicking on a Facebook advertisement (so-called “conversion”).

Facebook processes the data in accordance with Facebook’s data usage guidelines. Accordingly, general information on the display of Facebook ads in the data usage guidelines of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. You can find specific information and details about the Facebook Pixel and how it works in the Facebook help section: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.

Use of Facebook social plugins

On the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR), we use social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins can represent interaction elements or content (eg videos, graphics or text contributions) and can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile, the terms “Like”, “Like” or a “thumbs up” sign ) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).

When a user calls up a function of this online offer that contains such a plugin, his device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted from Facebook directly to the user’s device, which integrates it into the online offer. User profiles of the users can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the users according to our level of knowledge.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save his IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is saved in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the related rights and setting options for protecting the privacy of users can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ .
