6. Google AdWords and conversion measurement
We use the online marketing procedure Google "AdWords" to place advertisements in the Google advertising network (e. g. search results, videos, websites, etc.), so they appear to customers, who presumably show interest in the advertisements. This enables us to place specially targeted adverts for and within our online offerings, that potentially meet the customers‘ interests.
In case a product is displayed to the user, for that he has already shown interest on a different website, we refer to as "remarketing". Google automatically runs a code and so called (re)-marketing tags (invisible graphics or codes, also referred to as "web beacons") are embedded in homepages that use the google advertising network, as soon as a website is visited. With aid of the above mentioned, an individual cookie i. e. a small file is being saved (other comparable technologies be applied).
Which websites have been visited, which contents and offers were applicable, technical data about the browser and operating system, referring sites, time spent on the website as well as further details about the use of the online offerings are being saved in this created file.
Furthermore, we receive an individual "conversion cookie". Google uses the information collected by this cookie to create conversion statistics for us. However, we only receive an anonymous total amount of customers that have clicked on our advertisement and have been forwarded to a homepage with a conversion tracking tag. Anyways, customers can not be identified personally through this information.
Data is processed throughout the Google marketing network using a pseudonym, which means Google does not use the users name and e-mail address but only proceeds relevant, cookie-related, data within anonymous user profiles. In the view of Google, advertisements are not managed and viewed for an individual, but for the holder of the cookie, irrespective of who is the owner of the cookie.
This does not apply, if the customer has explicitly authorised Google to use the data without pseudonymisation. The collected data is transmitted to Google and stored on Google servers in the USA. If we ask the customer for permission (e. g. in the course of a cookie-agreement), the legal basis for obtaining consent is Article 6 (1) lit a GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). Otherwise the user’s personal data is proceeded on the basis of our shared interests (i. e. interest in analysis, optimisation and economical operation regarding our online offerings in compliance with the law GDPR Article 6 (1) lit (1)).
We point out that as far as data is processed in the USA, Google is certified by the EU-US Privacy Shield and observes the European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
Further information on Google’s data usage, configuration and appeal procedures, can be found in Google’s privacy statement (https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads), as well as in the settings for the display of advertisements via Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated).
IV. Social media plugins
Our website uses social plugins ("Plugins") of the facebook.com social network which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or with the additional "Facebook Social Plugin". If you call up a website on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website by the browser. By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking on the "Like" button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and saved there. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Facebook's data protection information. If you do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our website, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
V. Data security

However, we take technical and organisational measures to protect our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, alteration or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons. In particular, we transmit your personal data in encrypted form. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system for this purpose.
