Google Analytics with anonymization function

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, in the following "Google" on our site. Google-Analytics uses cookies that are stored on your computer and thereby enable an analysis of the website usage.

The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your website visit including your IP address, is transferred to Google in the USA and stored there.

We use Google Analytics on our website with the addition anonymizeIp=true. In this case, your IP address is already truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus made anonymous.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for us and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. 

Google will, according to its own information, under no circumstances connect your IP address with other Google data. 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 our website.

Furthermore, Google offers a deactivation add-on for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over which data is collected by Google for the websites you visit. The add-on informs the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no information about the website visit should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the Google Analytics browser disablement add-on does not prevent information from being sent to us or to other web analytics services we may use. For more information on how to install the browser add-on, please click on the link below: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

If you have agreed to Google linking your web and app browsing history to your Google Account and using information from your Google Account to personalize ads, Google will use your data along with Google Analytics data to create target audience lists for cross-device remarketing. For this purpose, Google Analytics first collects your Google-authenticated ID on our website, which is linked to your Google account (i.e. personal data). Google Analytics then temporarily links your ID to your Google Analytics data to optimize our target groups.

If you do not agree to this, you can opt-out by changing the settings in the "My Account" section of your Google Account.

 

Google Analytics Remarketing

This website uses the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

This feature allows you to link the advertising audiences created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device capabilities of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been customized for you on one device (e.g. cell phone) can also be displayed on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC) depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior.

If you have given permission, Google will link your web and app browsing history to your Google Account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on any device that you sign in with your Google Account.

To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated user IDs that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device advertising.

You can permanently opt-out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by turning off personalized advertising, following this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The aggregation of the collected data in your Google Account is based solely on your consent, which you can give or withdraw to Google (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). For data collection processes that are not merged into your Google Account (e.g. because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the merging), the collection of data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymized analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.

Google Ads and Google Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising program of Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

In the context of Google Ads we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser places on the user's computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page.

Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked on the websites of Google Ads customers. The information collected through the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this use by slightly disabling the Google conversion tracking cookie on your web browser under User Preferences. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

The storage of "conversion cookies" and the use of this tracking tool are based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise both his website and his advertising. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.

More information about Google Ads and Google Conversion Tracking can be found in the Google Privacy Policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

You can set your browser to inform you when cookies are set and to allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

 

Facebook pixel

This website uses the visitor action pixel of Facebook to measure conversion. This service is provided by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. However, according to Facebook, the data collected is also transferred to the United States and other third countries.

This allows the behavior of site visitors to be tracked after they have clicked on a Facebook advertisement to be redirected to the provider's website. This allows the effectiveness of Facebook Ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and to optimize future advertising efforts.

The collected data is anonymous to us as the operator of this website, we cannot 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. This allows Facebook to enable the placement of advertisements on pages of Facebook and outside of Facebook. This use of the data cannot be influenced by us as a site operator.

The use of Facebook pixels is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures, including social media. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.

 

You will find further information on the protection of your privacy in the Facebook data protection information: de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

 

You can also deactivate the remarketing function "Custom Audiences" in the settings for advertisements section at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. To do so, you must be logged in to Facebook.

 

If you do not have a Facebook account, you can disable usage-based advertising from Facebook on the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance website: www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/.
