(2) In order to load the required data, your browser does not need to establish a connection to Google’s servers. The required data is stored locally. This means that Google is not informed that this website has been accessed via your IP address. If your browser does not support web fonts, you will be shown a standard font.

In addition, the data mentioned under § 5 of this declaration will be transmitted. This takes place regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish your data to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or customising its website. Such an analysis is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide customised advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

(3) The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

You can find details at https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

 

§10 Use of Google Analytics

(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

(2) The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

(3) You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. 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 Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymiseIp()”. This means that IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, so that they cannot be linked to a specific person. If the data collected about you is personally identifiable, it is immediately excluded and the personal data is deleted immediately.

(5) We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

(6) Information from the third-party provider: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. user conditions: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, overview of data protection: http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, as well as the privacy policy: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found at https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

 

§11 Use of Google Ads

(1) We use Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising material on external websites. We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the advertising campaign data. We are interested in showing you adverts that are of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.

(2) These adverts are delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of adverts or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google advert, Google Ads will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies generally 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.

(3) These cookies enable Google to recognise your internet browser. If 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 this 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 and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical analyses from Google. These analyses allow us to recognise which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.

(4) 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 through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: Through the integration of ads, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advert from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will find out your IP address and store it.

(5) You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways: a) by setting your browser software accordingly; in particular, the suppression of third-party cookies means that you will not receive ads from third-party providers; b) by deactivating cookies for tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, whereby this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the “About Ads” self-regulation campaign via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies; d) by permanent deactivation in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.

(6) The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Further information on data protection at Google can be found here: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html. Alternatively, you can visit the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at http://www.networkadvertising.org Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found at https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

 

§12 Use of Google Tag Manager

(1) This website uses the Google Tag Manager of the provider Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. The Tag Manager is a tool that allows us to integrate tracking or statistical tools and other technologies on our website. The Tag Manager itself does not create any user profiles, does not store any cookies and does not carry out any independent analyses. It is only used to manage and display the tools integrated via it. However, the Tag Manager records your OP address, which may also be transmitted to Google’s parent company in the USA.

(2) The Tag Manager is used on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, as we have a legitimate interest in the fast and uncomplicated integration and management of the tools we use on this website. The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found at https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

 

§13 Use of reCAPTCHA

(1) This website uses the service of the provider reCAPTCHA of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. With reCAPTCHA, we can determine whether the person accessing the website is actually a human user or spam software. By spam we mean any unsolicited information that is sent to us electronically. It is therefore necessary for you as the user to confirm that you are a human by ticking the box.

(2) By inserting reCAPTCHA, data (see § 5) is transferred from you to the Google server. Data from other Google services will not be merged unless you are logged in to your Google account. If you wish to prevent the data from being merged, you must log out of Google completely and delete all Google cookies before visiting our website and using reCAPTCHA.

(3) As we want to optimise our online presence and protect it against harmful effects, we have a legitimate interest in the use of reCAPTCHA. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Further information about reCAPTCHA technology can be found at https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/. Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found at https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

 

§14 Use of social media plug-ins

(1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins: LinkedIn and YouTube. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our website, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognise the provider of the plug-in by the marking on the box above its initial letter or the logo. We give you the option of communicating directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it will the plug-in provider receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offering. In addition, the data mentioned under § 5 of this declaration will be transmitted. By activating the plug-in, your personal data is therefore transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of US providers in the USA). As the plug-in provider collects data via cookies in particular, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the greyed-out box.

(2) We have no influence on the data collected and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing or the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.

(3) The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or customising its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to display customised advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. We offer you the opportunity to interact with the social networks and other users via the plug-ins so that we can improve our offering and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

(4) The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected by us will be assigned directly to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider also saves this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will prevent you from being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

(5) Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the data protection declarations of these providers provided below. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.

(6) Address of the respective plug-in providers and URL with their data protection notices:

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a LinkedIn server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will first be truncated by LinkedIn within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
