3.2 Cookies (general)

So-called cookies are used on our website. A cookie is a small file that can be stored on your computer when you visit a website. Basically, cookies are used to provide users with additional functions on a website. For example, they can be used to facilitate and enable navigation on a website. Cookies cannot access, read or modify any other data on your computer.Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies).Other cookies remain on your terminal device and enable us or our partner companies (third-party cookies) to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies). When cookies are set, they collect and process certain user information on an individual scale, such as browser and location data and IP address values. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a certain period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie.If you want to control cookies on your computer, you can set your browser preferences to notify you when a website wants to store cookies. You can also block or delete cookies if they have already been stored on your computer. If you want to know more about how to set these steps, please use the "Help" function in your browsers. Please note that blocking or deleting cookies may affect your online experience and prevent you from fully using this website.

3.3 Social Media Plug-ins

We use social media plug-ins to recommend content from social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, Linked-In to users. For this purpose, we use a two-stage procedure. Data is only transmitted to third parties when users click on one of the icons displayed in the social media bar. We have neither influence nor access to cookies set by Facebook, Instagram or Linked-In.

3.4 Google Tag Manager

We use Google Tag Manager on our pages. The Google Tag Manager is an application that allows us to play small code elements (tags) on our pages based on user-defined rules. Such tags can be used, for example, to measure visitor behavior (Google Analytics).The Tag Manager itself does not write cookies and does not collect personal data, but can play out tags that collect such data. The basis for the Cookie Consent Tool offered on our pages is the use of the Google Tag Manager, which interprets the settings made by visitors and then plays tags on the page or not.

3.5 Google Analytics

Our website uses features of the Google Analytics web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyze how you use this website. The information generated by such a cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address and the URLs of the web pages accessed as well as the attributes of the website) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the U.S. The data obtained in this way will be used to optimize our website and advertising measures. Our website uses the IP anonymization option offered by Google Analytics. Your IP address will therefore be shortened/anonymized by Google as soon as Google receives your IP address. On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data by Google.You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics on this website via our "Cookie Management Tool" (link "Cookie Settings" at the bottom of the page) (an opt-out cookie will be set that prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website). More information on Google's terms of use and Google's privacy policy.

3.6 Google Signals

Furthermore, we use the Signals function in Google Analytics. Google Signals enables an extended analysis of the user behavior of visitors who have visited our pages with their logged-in Google account and have agreed to personalized advertising in their Google account. This includes, for example, analyses of cross-device use of our pages (aggregation of multiple devices), the ability to perform cross-device remarketing for logged-in Google users, and the storage of socio-demographic data (such as age group, geographic data,...) in the Google Analytics database.

3.7 Google Optimize

With Google Optimize, another tool of the Google Marketing Platform is used on our websites. Google Optimize enables us to increase the interaction rate of our visitors by playing different test variants of our websites, among other things by optimizing usability. Such tests are either A/B tests or multivariate tests. If Google Optimize is used on the website, cookies are used to optimize and analyze the behavior of visitors to our website.

3.8 Google Ads & Conversion tracking

We use Google AdWords Conversion Tracking to measure the success of our advertising measures. After certain target achievements on our website ("conversions") - such as sending the contact form - this target achievement is recorded by Google. Google can thus measure the number of target achievements. In addition, Google will use previously set cookies to assign which advertisements were clicked on beforehand and were thus decisive for the target achievement.In this context, Google Ads will set a cookie on your computer if you have reached our websites via a Google ad. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If users visit certain pages of the Google Ads customers' websites and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customers can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie.Google processes this data on servers in the USA, but will not associate it with any personal data from your Google Account. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also refuse the setting of a cookie required for this - for example, via browser settings that generally disable the automatic setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the "www.googleadservices.com" domain. Google's privacy policy on conversion tracking can be found here.

3.9 Google Remarketing

At most, we use the remarketing or "similar target groups" function of Google. This allows us to play personalized advertising to you on suitable advertising spaces on other websites. For this purpose, Google stores a small file with a sequence of numbers in the browsers of the website users. This number is used to record visits to the website as well as anonymized data on the use of the website. No personal data of the users of the website is stored. If you subsequently visit another website in the Google Display Network, you will be shown advertisements that are highly likely to take into account previously accessed product and information areas. According to its own statements, Google does not combine the data collected in the course of remarketing with your personal data. In particular, according to Google, pseudonymization is used in remarketing. This function is only activated after you have agreed to the use of cookies when visiting our site. You can control the setting at any time via our "Cookie Management Tool" ("Cookie Settings" link at the bottom of the page).Alternatively, you can deactivate the use of cookies by third-party providers by calling up the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative at www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and implementing the further information on opting out mentioned there. Further information on Google Remarketing as well as Google's privacy policy can be viewed at: www.google.com/privacy/ads/

3.10. Facebook

3.10.1 FACEBOOK SEITE

When you visit our Facebook page, personal data (documentation of usage behavior) is processed by Facebook using cookies. From this information, anonymized statistical data about page activity is created and automatically provided to us (Insights). We are jointly responsible with Facebook for this data processing pursuant to Article 26 GDPR. In doing so, we rely on our legitimate interests. Without the processing of this data, we would not be able to maintain the presence and optimization of our offer on Facebook. You can find more information on the Facebook information page.

3.10.2 FACEBOOK PLUG-INS

Plug-ins from Facebook that are used by us store personal data of visitors to our website in accordance with Facebook's data usage policy. This also applies to users who are not logged in or are not members of Facebook. For more information, please refer to Facebook's privacy policy.

3.10.3 FACEBOOK PIXEL

We also use the "Pixel" from Facebook on our websites. This allows us to track the behavior of users after they have clicked on an ad on Facebook. This allows us to evaluate ads for statistical and market research purposes and to optimize future advertising measures.Another benefit is to recognize whether and which interactions were carried out on the website (e.g. download) (see Event Tracking). This function is also used to present interest-based advertisements ("Facebook Ads") to visitors of this website when they visit the social network Facebook (see Custom Audiences). For this purpose, Facebook Pixel has been implemented on our website. Via Facebook Pixel, a direct connection to the Facebook servers is established when visiting the website. In the process, it is transmitted to the Facebook server that you have visited this website and Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account.No personal data is provided to us in the process. At the same time, the data is also stored and processed by Facebook itself, so that it is possible for Facebook to link to the respective Facebook user profile. Facebook may use this data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook Data Use Policy. The consent to this is within the scope of Facebook and cannot be influenced by us. For more information on the collection and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Facebook's privacy policy.

3.10.4 EVENT TRACKING

In addition to the integration of the Facebook pixel, our websites also use the associated event tracking. An event is a specific action that a visitor takes on our website, such as a contact request or a newsletter subscription. This helps us to better measure the achievement of our online campaigns and to assess how successful an online campaign was in the end. You can find more information here.

3.10.5 CUSTOM AUDIENCES

Our website uses Facebook's "Custom Audiences" remarketing function, which uses the Facebook Pixel installed on our website to recognize logged-in visitors, along with the information on which of our pages the visit took place. These visitors can then be served targeted advertisements.

3.11 Newsletter

We use the services of Mailchimp for sending newsletters. The provider is Mailchimp, an online marketing platform of The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA.
