17.3. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with further services related to the use of this online offer and the internet usage. In this case, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.

17.4. We use Google Analytics to display advertisements displayed within Google and its affiliate advertising services, only those users who have shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain characteristics (eg interests in specific topics or products determined by the visited Web pages) that we submit to Google (so-called “remarketing” or “Google Analytics audiences”). With Remarketing Audiences, we also want to make sure that our ads are in line with the potential interest of users and are not annoying.

17.5. We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization.

17.7. For more information about Google’s data usage, hiring and opt-out options, please visit Google’s websites: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/partners (“Google’s use of your data when you use websites or apps Our Partners “), https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads (” Advertising Use of Data “), https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated (” Managing information Google uses to show you advertising “).

18. Google Re/Marketing services

18.1. On the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. GDPR) we use the marketing and remarketing services (“Google Marketing Services “), LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (” Google “).

18.2. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European privacy legislation (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

18.3. Google Marketing Services allows us to better target advertisements for and on our website so that we only present ads to users that potentially match their interests. If a user is e.g. displayed ads for products he’s been interested in on other websites this is called remarketing. For these purposes, when Google and our other websites accessing Google Marketing Services are directly accessed by Google, a code will be executed by Google and so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also called “Web Beacons “) incorporated into the website. With their help, the user is provided with an individual cookie, i.e. a small file is saved (instead of cookies, comparable technologies can also be used). The cookies can be set by different domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. In this file is noted which web pages the user visited, for what content he is interested and what offers he has clicked, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time and other information on the use of the online offer. The IP address of the user is also recorded, whereby in the context of Google Analytics we announce that the IP address is shortened within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and only in exceptional cases to one Google server in the US is transmitted and shortened there. The IP address will not be merged with data of the user within other offers from Google. The above information may also be linked by Google with such information from other sources. If the user then visits other websites, they can be displayed according to his interests, the ads tailored to him.

18.4. The data of the users are pseudonym processed in the context of the Google marketing services. That is Google stores and processes e.g. not the name or e-mail address of the users, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. That is from the perspective of Google, the ads are not managed and displayed to a specifically identified person, but to the cookie owner, regardless of who that cookie owner is. This does not apply if a user has explicitly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected about users through Google Marketing Services is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the United States.

18.5. Among the Google marketing services we use inter alia the online advertising program “Google AdWords”. In the case of Google AdWords, each advertiser receives a different “conversion cookie”. Cookies can not be tracked through AdWords advertisers’ websites. The information collected through the cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Advertisers will see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.

18.6. We can engage third-party ads based on Google’s DoubleClick marketing service. DoubleClick uses cookies that enable Google and its affiliate websites to serve ads based on users’ visits to this site or other sites on the Internet.

18.7. We can incorporate third-party ads based on the Google AdSense marketing service. AdSense uses cookies that enable Google and its affiliate sites to serve ads based on users’ visits to this site or other sites on the Internet.

18.8. Also we can use the service “Google Optimizer”. Google Optimizer allows us to understand how various changes to a website (such as changes to the input fields, the design, etc.) can take place in so-called “A / B testings”. Cookies are stored on users’ devices for these purposes. Only pseudonymous data of the users are processed.

18.9. In addition, we may use the “Google Tag Manager” to integrate and manage the Google Analytics and Marketing Services on our website.

18.10. For more information about Google’s data usage for marketing purposes, please visit the overview page: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads, Google’s Privacy Policy is available at https://policies.google.com/privacy.

GDPR), we make use of content or services offered by third-party providers in order to provide their content and services, such as Include videos or fonts (collectively referred to as “content”). This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We strive to use only content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also referred to 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 include, but is not limited to, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web sites, visit time, and other information regarding the use of our online offer.
