4. Integration of Third-Party Services and Content
As part of our online offer we use, based on our legitimate interests (the optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of point (f) of Art. 6 (1) (1) DSGVO / GDPR), content or service offers of third-party providers to integrate their content and services (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”). This requires that the third-party providers of this content are aware of the IP address of the user; without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browser.
The IP address is thus required for the display of this content. We endeavour to use only such content whose respective providers merely use the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, the referring websites, the time of visit and other information about the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources. Below you find information on third-party providers and their content, along with links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information regarding the processing of data and, in part already mentioned here, options for objection:
5. Liability for Links
Our online offer contains links to external websites provided by third parties, which are outside our area of responsibility and on whose content and design we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these external websites. The same applies to the content and design of external websites that link to our website. It is always the respective provider or operator of such websites who is responsible for the content of the linked pages.
In addition, we also use temporary cookies, stored on your end device for a defined period of time, to optimise the user-friendliness of our online offer. Should you return to our website to use our services, the website automatically recognises that you have been with us before and recalls the entries and settings you made so that you do not have to enter them again.
7. Contact Form
Insofar as the contact form provided is used for communication, it is necessary to provide a name and first name, a telephone number and an e-mail address. Without this data, the request transmitted cannot be processed.
In addition, the following data is collected by our system:
• IP address of the calling computer;
• date and time of registration.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data in the context of e-mails sent to us is points (b) and (f) of Art. 6 (1) DSGVO / GDPR.
The data accrued in this context we delete after storage is no longer necessary or restrict the processing if there are legal retention obligations.
Should we use commissioned service providers for individual functions of our offer or would like to use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you in detail about the respective processes below. In doing so, we will also state the defined criteria for the storage period.
8. Google Ads
(a) Google Ads Conversion
We use the offer of Google Ads Conversion to draw with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Ads) attention to our attractive offers on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. In this way, we pursue the interest of showing you advertising that is of interest to you, of making our website more interesting for you, and of achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.
These advertisements are delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, which can be used to assess certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of advertisements or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your end device. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. The unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.
These cookies enable Google to recognise your internet browser. Insofar a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Ads customers. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data as part of the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations we can recognise which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. Beyond that we do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we have no means by which we could identify users.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google and therefore can only inform you to the best of our knowledge: Through the integration of Google Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. But even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is the possibility that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.
(b) Google Ads Remarketing
We use the remarketing function within the Google Ads service. With the remarketing function we can present users of our website with advertisements based on their interests on other websites within the Google advertising network (in Google Search or on YouTube, so-called “Google Ads” or on other websites). For this purpose, the interaction of users on our website is analysed, e.g. which offers the user was interested in, in order to be able to display targeted advertising to users on other sites even after they have visited our website. To this end, Google stores a number in the browsers of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google display network. It is by way of this number, known as a “cookie”, that the visits of these users are recorded. This number is used to uniquely identify a web browser on a specific end device and not to identify a person; personal data is not stored.
You can prevent participation in this tracking process in a number of ways: (a) by adjusting your browser software accordingly – in particular the suppression of third-party cookies will result in you not receiving advertisements from third-party providers; (b) by installing the plug-in provided by Google at the following link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin; (c) by deactivating the interest-based advertisements of the providers that are part of the self-regulation campaign “About Ads” via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies; (d) by permanently deactivating in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin; and (e) by means of specific cookie setting. Please note that you subsequently may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.

Lifetime of the cookies: up to 1 month (this only applies to cookies set via this website).
