The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. Activation of the IP anonymization function on this website means that Google will, however, truncate your IP address within European Union member states or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transferring the data.

In addition to this, we have concluded a data processing contract with Google (USA) in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

3. We use Google Remarketing technology

We use Google’s Cross-Device Remarketing technology, so that, based on your visit to our website, targeted advertising on other internet pages can be brought to your attention. The data processing here, on the basis of your consent, is in compliance with article 6, section 1 (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation.

a. How does remarketing work?

When you visit our web pages, it is possible that Google may bring up recognition features for your browser or your terminal device (e.g. by creating what is known as a ‘browser fingerprint’), may evaluate your IP address or store a recognition feature in the form of a small text file on your terminal device (e.g. a ‘third party cookie’). It is further possible that Google may link your visit to our internet pages with one or more of these recognition features and store the associated data, in order to show you our advertising on other pages of the internet.

The recognition features described above are designed pseudonymously and can be used by Google to recognize your terminal device on other internet pages. If for example you visit a web page which participates in Google’s display advertising network (that is to say, shows advertising for Google), Google can recognize your terminal device and your browser, based on the features referred to above.

We may also provide our web pages with what are known as ‘remarketing tags’. This means that we can adopt keywords on our internet pages which contain statements about the content of the pages displayed (such as product or service categories). The keywords we use do not show any personal data or sensitive information. Google receives these keywords and stores them along with the recognition features referred to earlier. Therefore, when you visit a page which we have tagged with a keyword referring to a specific product category, Google stores this keyword and assigns it to the recognition features associated with you.

As a result we can request Google to display advertising on other websites based on the pages on our website that you have visited. So when you visit another internet page which participates in Google’s display advertising network, Google can recognize, based on the recognition features and associated keywords stored, whether our advertising (and what kind of advertising) should be shown to you.

More detailed information about the mode of functioning of Google Remarketing technology may be found at https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

b. What is the meaning of Cross-Device Remarketing?

If you log in to Google services with your own log-in data, and/or use one or more of your own Google accounts, Google can link the recognition features of the different browsers and terminal devices involved. Therefore, if Google has assigned a particular recognition feature to the laptop, desktop PC, Smartphone or Tablet you are using, these recognition features can be associated with one another whenever you make use of or if you have previously made use of a Google service using your log-in data. In this way, Google can systematically present our advertising campaigns without reference to the specific terminal device. Google will only do this, however, if you have in the past given Google a declaration of consent to this form of data processing.

You have the possibility of adjusting your advertising settings

You are at liberty to opt out of this form of advertising at any time. To do this, please go to this page: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922 – and disable personalized advertising. Please be aware that there is a possibility that these settings may not work for all terminal devices and browsers. More detailed information about this may again be obtained from https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922.

4. Social media plug-ins

For reasons of data protection, we do not directly incorporate any social plug-ins in our website. If you bring up our pages no data will be transmitted to social media services like Facebook, Twitter, XING and Google+. This rules out the creation of a profile for you by third parties.

You do, however, still have the possibility of sharing selected pages by clicking on a Facebook, Twitter, XING or Google+ button, and you can also see, just by bringing up the associated contributions, how frequently these have been shared in the past. For this purpose we use the Shariff solution, so as to offer an alternative to classic social plug-ins which is in compliance with data protection requirements.

The Shariff solution means that, as a first step, all data and functions required for presentation of the Facebook, Twitter, XING or Google+ buttons are provided by our web server. Only when you decide to share a contribution by means of the appropriate button, and click on it, will data be transmitted to the operator of the social media service in question.

5. Making contact via WhatsApp

You can likewise get in touch with us via WhatsApp. WhatsApp is an instant messaging service of WhatsApp Inc., a company located in the USA. We use your data only for the processing of your query. Furthermore, no other data processing will be either carried out or initiated by us.

Please be aware that all information that you communicate to us, including your telephone number, will be stored by WhatsApp Inc. on servers in the USA. The possibility cannot be excluded that WhatsApp Inc. may use your data, for instance in order to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences and the like. We can exercise no influence whatever on the processing of your data by WhatsApp Inc.

We do not at any time register, store or process personal data of our users on this page. Furthermore, no other data processing will be either carried out or initiated by us.

Please be aware of the following: the possibility cannot be excluded that Facebook may use your profile data, for instance in order to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences and the like. We can exercise no influence whatever on the processing of your data by Facebook.

7. Embedded YouTube videos

On some subpages we incorporate YouTube videos in our website. Bringing up these subpages results in content being downloaded from YouTube. In this context, YouTube will also be given your IP address, as this is a technical requirement for accessing the content in question. We have fundamentally no influence on the further processing of the data by YouTube. However, we have taken care, when embedding the videos, to activate the extended data protection mode that YouTube offers.
