GOOGLE ANALYTICS

Our website uses the functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics, Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA, 94043, USA. Cookies are used in order to analyze how visitors use the website. The resulting information is transferred to the content provider’s server and stored there. You can prevent this by configuring your browser so that the use of cookies is not permitted. Instructions on how to deactivate cookies can be found in the ‘Cookies’ section, under the point ‘Information about how to deactivate cookies’.

We have a corresponding contract with the content provider regarding data processing. Your IP address is recorded but immediately anonymized (for example, by deleting the last eight bits). In this way it is possible to get only a general idea of your location. The relation to the web analytics provider is based on “Privacy Shield”.

Data is processed in accordance with the legal regulations of § 96 Abs 3 TKG as well as Article 6 Paragraph 1 section (a) (consent) and/or (f) (legitimate interests) of the GDPR. Our aim in terms of the GDRP (legitimate interests) is the improvement of our services and our internet presence. Because the privacy of our users is important to us, user data is anonymised.

 

FACEBOOK PIXEL

Our website uses the remarketing function “Custom Audiences” of Facebook, Inc. (hereafter known as “Facebook”). This function provides visitors to our website with interest-related advertisements (Facebook ads) when they log in to Facebook. Through this function a direct connection to the Facebook servers is made when visiting our website. Your visit to this website will be transferred to those servers. Facebook automatically connects this information to your personal Facebook account.

More detailed information about the collection and use of data by Facebook, as well as about your rights and how you can protect your privacy, can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy. Alternatively, you can also deactivate audience-based advertising. In order to access this information you must be logged onto Facebook.
