2. Data Transfer to Third Parties
We transfer your data to service providers who support us in the operation of our website and the associated processes. This transference is made under the scope of a data processing agreement in accordance to Art. 28 GDPR. Our service providers are bound to us by strict instructions and contractual obligations.
Data Transfer to Third Countries (Non-EU Countries)
In some cases, we may transfer personal data to third countries outside the EU. In each case, we ensure an appropriate level of data protection according to European standards.
In the case of Google and Facebook an appropriate level of data protection is ensured by the corresponding participation in the Privacy Shield Agreement (Art. 45 para. 1 GDPR).
We use session cookies and permanent cookies on our website. The data is processed in accordance to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR and in the interest of optimizing or enabling user guidance and improving our website presence.
We use Google Analytics to create pseudonymous user profiles for improving and designing our website on demand. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your end device and can be read by us. In this way, we are able to recognize and count returning visitors. This data processing is carried out on the basis of your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR.
The information generated by the cookies about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on its servers in the United States. We have activated IP-anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated within the area of Member States of the European Union. Only in exceptional cases is the whole IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there (an adequate level of data protection is ensured according to Art. 45 para. 1 GDPR because Google is a participant in the Privacy Shield Agreement). We have also concluded a contract with Google Inc. (USA) pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR. Accordingly, Google will solely use collected data for the purposes intended, which are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on website activities.
You can withdraw your consent to the processing at any time. Please use one of the following options:
You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

5. Online Marketing
If you use our website, you agree to the following data processing:
We use Google Retargeting Technologies
We use Google's retargeting technologies in order to offer you advertising, on other websites, that is tailored to your interests. Data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR.
How does remarketing work?
When you visit our website, recognition features of your browser or end device are retrieved, your IP address is evaluated or a recognition feature is stored as a small text file (e. g. so-called third-party cookie) on your end device. Furthermore, it is possible that Google connects your visit of our website with your usage behavior which is recorded when you visit various websites. The characteristics are designed pseudonymously. If you are logged in with your Google account, these features can be assigned directly to your profile. Google can link and store your visits to our web pages with your features to display targeted advertising on other Internet sites.
The aforementioned recognition features are pseudonymous and we can use Google to recognize your end device on other internet pages. Your device and your browser will be recognized by Google, e.g. when you visit a page that displays advertisements on Google's behalf.
We can add to our website so called remarketing tags. We may add keywords to our webpages that contain statements about the content of the website, such as offered products. Google receives these keywords which contain neither personal nor sensitive information. When you visit a page with certain keywords related to products, Google stores them and assigns them to your pseudonymous recognition features. Google can use this link to determine whether and, if so, which of our advertisements will be displayed to you.
We can therefore commission Google to place advertisements on other websites based on the pages you visited. If you visit another website that participates in Google's display network, Google can use recognition features and keywords stored for this purpose to determine whether and, if so, which of our ads should be displayed.
For more information on how Google Remarketing technologies work, visit https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.
What does cross-device remarketing mean?
If you sign in to Google services with your own credentials or use one or more of your own Google accounts, Google may link the recognition features of different browsers and devices. So once Google has created a unique identifier for the laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet you are using, you can associate those identifiers with one another by using or having used your sign-in information to use a Google service. In this way, Google can also play our advertising campaigns beyond the end device in a targeted manner. However, Google will only do this if you have agreed to this data processing in your dealings with Google.
You Have the Option to Define Advertising Settings
You can object to this form of advertising at any time. To do this, please visit https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922 and deactivate personalized advertising. Please note that these settings may not affect all devices and browsers. Further information is also available at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922.
Facebook Custom Audiences/ Facebook Pixel
This website uses the "Facebook Pixel" of Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Men-lo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Facebook"). If explicit consent is given, users' behaviour can be tracked after they have seen or clicked on a Facebook advertisement. This process is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes and may help us to optimize future advertising measures.
The data collected is anonymous to us, so it does not give us any indication of the identity of the users. However, Facebook stores and processes the data 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 Guidelines (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). You can allow Facebook and its partners to run ads inside and outside Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes.
These processing operations only take place after you have given us your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Consent to the use of the Facebook pixel may only be given by users who are older than 13 years of age. If you are younger, please ask your parents for permission.
Facebook Inc., based in the USA, is certified for the US-EU data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which guarantees compliance with an adequate level of data protection.
