If content, tools or other means from other providers (hereinafter jointly referred to as “Third-Party Providers”) are used within the scope of this data protection declaration and their registered office is abroad, it is to be assumed that a data transfer to the registered office states of the Third-Party Providers takes place. The transfer of data to third countries takes place either on the basis of a legal permit, user consent or special contractual clauses which guarantee the security of the data required by law.

5. Cookies & Reach Measurement

Cookies are pieces of information that are transferred from our web server or third party web servers to the user’s web browser and stored there for later retrieval. Users are informed about the use of cookies within the scope of pseudonymous range measurement within the scope of this data protection declaration.

The viewing of this online offer is also possible excluding cookies. If users do not wish cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies can lead to functional restrictions of this online offer.

It is possible to manage many online ad cookies from companies via the US site http://www.aboutads.info/choices or the EU site http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/ .

 

6. Google Analytics

We utilize Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the user is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

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

We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization enabled. 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. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

The IP address sent from your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data by Google. You can prevent storage of cookies by appropriately setting your browser software; in this case, however, please note that you might not be able to fully use all functions offered by this website. In addition, you can prevent data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected and processed by Google, by downloading and installing a browser plug-in from the following link:

http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

 

For more information about Google’s use of data for advertising purposes, setting preferences and opt-out options, please visit the following Google web pages: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners (“Google’s use of data when you use the websites or apps of our partners”), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“Google’s use of data for advertising purposes”), http://www.google.de/settings/ads (“Manage information Google uses to display advertisements for you”) and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences (“Determine which advertisements Google displays to you”).

 

7. Google Re/Marketing Services

We use the marketing and remarketing services (“Google Marketing Services”) of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

Google’s marketing services allow us to display advertisements for and on our website in a more targeted manner to show users only ads that potentially match their interests. If, for example, users are shown ads for products they are interested in on other websites, this is referred to as “remarketing”. For these purposes, when you visit our and other web pages on which Google marketing services are active, Google executes a Google code directly and incorporates (re)marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as “web beacons”) into the web page. With their help, an individual cookie, i.e. a small file, is stored on the user’s device (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). The cookies can be set by various domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. In this file it is noted which websites the user visits, which contents he is interested in and which offers he has clicked on, furthermore technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time as well as further information about the use of the online offer. The IP address of the user is also recorded, whereby we inform within the scope of Google Analytics that the IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area is shortened and only in exceptional cases completely transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address is not merged with user data within other Google offers. The above information may also be linked to such information from other sources. If the user subsequently visits other websites, the ads tailored to the user’s interests can be displayed.

User data is processed pseudonymously within the framework of Google marketing services. I.e. Google does not store and process the name or e-mail address of the user, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. This means that, from Google’s point of view, the ads are not administered 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 permitted Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information DoubleClick collects about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the United States.

One of the Google marketing services we use is the online advertising program “Google AdWords”. In the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords customer receives a different “conversion cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected through the cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. AdWords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users.

We may include third-party advertisements based on Google’s “DoubleClick” marketing service. DoubleClick uses cookies to enable Google and its partner sites to serve ads based on users’ visits to this site or other sites on the Internet.

We also incorporate third-party advertisements based on Google’s AdSense marketing service. AdSense uses cookies to enable Google and its partner sites to serve ads based on users’ visits to this site or other sites on the Internet.

Another Google marketing service we use is the “Google Tag Manager”, which can be used to integrate further Google analysis and marketing services into our website (e.g. “AdWords”, “DoubleClick” or “Google Analytics”).

You can find out more about Google’s use of data for marketing purposes on the overview page: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads, Google’s privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy

If you wish to opt out of Google marketing services, you may use the opt-out and setting options provided by Google: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences.

 

8. Facebook Social Plugins

Our online offer uses social plugins (“Plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile, the terms “like”, “like” or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be seen here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When a user calls up a function of this online service that contains such a plugin, his device establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user’s device and integrated into the online offer by the user. User profiles can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform the user according to our state of knowledge concerning this.

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 in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, e.g. by clicking the Like button or commenting, the corresponding information is transferred directly from your device to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to know and store their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored 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 to protect the privacy of users can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect information about him or her via this online service and link it to his or her Facebook member data, he or she must log out of Facebook and delete cookies before using our online service. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US page http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU page http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

 

9. Facebook Remarketing

Within our online offer, we employ what are known as “Facebook Pixels” of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are resident in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). With the help of the Facebook Pixel, Facebook is able to determine the visitors of our offer as a target group for the presentation of ads, so-called “Facebook Ads”. Accordingly, we use the Facebook Pixel to display the Facebook ads we have switched to only those Facebook users who have shown an interest in our Internet offering. This means that with the help of the Facebook Pixel we want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not appear annoying. The Facebook pixel also enables us to track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing if users were directed to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad.

The Facebook pixel is directly integrated by Facebook when you visit our website and can store a so-called cookie, i.e. a small file, on your device. If you then log in to Facebook or visit Facebook when logged in, the visit to our offer will be noted in your profile. The data collected about you is anonymous to us and does not give us any information about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible. Facebook processes the data in accordance with the Facebook Data Usage Policy. Accordingly, you may learn more about how the remarketing pixel works and how Facebook ads are displayed in general from Facebook’s data usage policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

You may opt out of Facebook Pixel’s collection and use of your information to display Facebook Ads. To do this, you can go to the page set up at Facebook and follow the instructions on the settings for usage-based advertising: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or explain the objection via the US page http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU page http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

 

10. Newsletter

The following information will inform you as to the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures and your rights of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and procedures described.

Content of the newsletter: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information (hereinafter “Newsletter”) only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the contents of the newsletter are specifically described within the framework of registration, they are decisive for the consent of the user. In addition, our newsletters contain the following information: our products, offers, promotions and our company.

Double-opt-in and logging: The registration to our newsletter takes place in a so-called double-opt-in procedure. This means that you will receive an e-mail after registration asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with external e-mail addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes storing the login and confirmation times as well as the IP address. Likewise the changes of your data stored with the dispatch service provider are logged.

Dispatch service provider: The dispatch of the newsletter takes place by means of “Mailchimp” (hereinafter referred to as “dispatch service provider”). You can view the privacy policy of the shipping service provider here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.

The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their further data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of the dispatch service provider. The shipping service provider uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, the shipping service provider may use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of dispatch and the presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or pass them on to third parties.

Registration data: To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address.

Statistical survey and analyses – The newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved from the server of the dispatch service provider when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are first collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services on the basis of technical data or target groups and their reading behavior on the basis of their retrieval points (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked on. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our nor the dispatch service provider’s intention to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.

Cancellation/revocation – You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. At the same time, your consents to its shipment by the shipping service provider and the statistical analyses expire. A separate revocation of the dispatch by the dispatch service provider or the statistical evaluation is unfortunately not possible. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.

 

11. integration of Services and Contents of Third parties

It could occur that content or services of third party providers, such as city maps or fonts from other websites, are integrated within our online offering. The integration of third-party content always presupposes that the third-party providers perceive the IP address of the users, since they would not be able to send the content to the user’s browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of these contents. Furthermore, the providers of third-party content can set their own cookies and process the user data for their own purposes. User profiles can be created from the processed data. We will use this content as data-efficiently and data-avoidably as possible and select reliable third-party providers with regard to data security.

The following presentation provides an overview of third-party providers and their contents, along with links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and, in some cases already mentioned here, possible objections (so-called opt-out):

External fonts from Google, Inc., https://www.google.com/fonts (“Google Fonts”). The integration of the Google Fonts takes place by a server call with Google (usually in the USA). Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, Opt-Out: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/.

maps of the “Google Maps” service of the third-party provider Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, Opt-Out: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/.

Videos from the “YouTube” platform of third-party provider Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, Opt-Out: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/.

 

12. User Rights and Deletion of Data

Users have the right, upon request and free of charge, to obtain information about the personal data we have stored about them.

In addition, users have the right to have incorrect data corrected, consents revoked, their personal data blocked and deleted, and the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority if unlawful data processing is assumed.

The data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and there are no legal obligations to retain them.

 

13. Changes to the Data Protection Declaration

We reserve the right to change the data protection declaration in order to adapt it to changed legal situations or in the event of changes to the service or data processing. However, this only applies with regard to declarations on data processing. If user consents are required or components of the data protection declaration contain provisions of the contractual relationship with the users, the changes will only be made with the consent of the users.

Users are requested to maintain informed on a regular basis concerning the content of the data protection declaration.
