In order to address users whose data we have received in the context of business or business-like relationships in a more interest-oriented advertising manner, we use a customer matching function in the context of Google Ads. For this purpose, we transmit one or more files with aggregated customer data (primarily email addresses and telephone numbers) electronically to Google. Google does not have access to clear data, but automatically encrypts the information in the customer files during the transmission process using a special algorithm. The encrypted information can then only be used by Google to assign it to existing Google accounts that the data subjects have set up. This enables personalised advertising to be played via all Google services linked to the respective Google account.
Customer data will only be transferred to Google if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.

GMP uses COOKIES to serve ads that are relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads more than once. Google uses a cookie ID to record which ads are displayed in which browser and can thus prevent them from being displayed more than once. In addition, GMP can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions that are related to ad requests.

According to Google, GMP COOKIES do not contain any personal information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google’s 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 state of knowledge as follows: Through the integration of GMP, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement 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, it is possible that the provider will obtain and store your IP address. The use of GMP may also result in the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.
All processing described above, in particular the setting of COOKIES for the reading of information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

9) Web analytics services

Google (Universal) Analytics with Google Signals
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). Google (Universal) 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 the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics exclusively with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”, which ensures anonymisation of the IP address by shortening it and excludes direct personal reference. The extension means that your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google LLC.server in the USA and shortened there.
Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. In this context, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google (Universal) Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Google Analytics also enables the creation of statistics with statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors on the basis of an evaluation of interest-based advertising and with the inclusion of third-party information via a special function, the so-called “demographic characteristics”. This allows the definition and differentiation of user groups of the website for the purpose of the target group-optimised orientation of marketing measures. However, data records collected via the “demographic characteristics” cannot be assigned to a specific person.
All of the processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics COOKIES for reading out information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Without this consent, Google Analytics will not be used during your visit to the website.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service in the “Cookie Consent Tool” provided on the website. We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics, which obliges Google to protect the data of our site visitors and not to pass it on to third parties. For the transfer of data from the EU to the USA, Google refers to the so-called standard data protection clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European level of data protection in the USA.
Further information on Google (Universal) Analytics can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de
This website also uses the Google Signals service as an extension of Google Analytics. With Google Signals, we can have Google create cross-device reports (so-called “cross-device tracking”). If you have activated “personalised ads” in your Google account settings and you have linked your internet-enabled devices to your Google account, Google can analyse user behaviour across devices and create database models based on this, provided you have given your consent to the use of Google Analytics in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO (see above). The logins and device types of all page visitors who were logged into a Google account and performed a conversion are taken into account. The data shows, among other things, on which device you first clicked on an ad and on which device the associated conversion took place. We do not receive any personal data from Google in this regard, but only statistics compiled on the basis of Google Signals. You have the option of deactivating the “personalised ads” function in the settings of your Google account and thus switching off the cross-device analysis. To do this, follow the instructions on this page: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de

10.1 Use of Youtube videos
This website uses the Youtube embedding function to display and play videos from the provider “Youtube”, which belongs to Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).
The extended data protection mode is used here, which, according to the provider, only triggers the storage of user information when the video(s) is/are played. If the playback of embedded Youtube videos is started, the provider “Youtube” uses COOKIES to collect information about user behaviour. According to information from “Youtube”, these are used, among other things, to collect video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to prevent abusive behaviour. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account when you click on a video. If you do not wish to have your data associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right. The use of YouTube may also result in the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.
Independently of a playback of the embedded videos, a connection to the Google network is established each time this website is called up, which may trigger further data processing operations without our influence.
All processing described above, in particular the reading of information on the end device used via the tracking pixel, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.

The service includes the sending of the IP address and, if applicable, further data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google and is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in determining individual personal responsibility on the Internet and the prevention of abuse and spam. The use of Google reCAPTCHA may also involve the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

If you do not wish to have your data associated with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. The collection, storage and evaluation are carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of Google’s legitimate interest in displaying personalised advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of Google websites. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right. If you do not agree to the future transmission of your data to Google in the context of the use of Google Maps, you also have the option of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser.

For security purposes, this website uses the plugin “CLEANTALK”, a service of Defiant Inc, 800 5th Ave Ste 4100, Seattle, WA 98104, USA (hereinafter “CLEANTALK”). The plugin protects the website and the associated IT infrastructure from unauthorised third-party access, cyber attacks and viruses and malware. CLEANTALK collects the IP addresses of users and, where applicable, other data about your behaviour on our website (in particular URLs accessed and header information) in order to detect and prevent illegitimate page accesses and threats. In doing so, the collected IP address is compared with a list of known attackers. If the captured IP address is identified as a security risk, CLEANTALK can automatically block it from accessing the site. The information collected in this way is transferred to a server of Defiant Inc. in the USA and stored there.
The data processing described above is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interests in protecting the website from harmful cyber attacks and in maintaining structural and data integrity and security.
Defiant Inc. invokes the standard data protection clauses according to Art. 46 sentence 2 lit. c DSGVO as the legal basis for the transfer of data to the USA.
If website visitors have login rights, CLEANTALK also sets COOKIES (= small text files) on the respective end device used by the visitor. With the help of the COOKIES, certain location and device information can be read out, which enables an assessment of whether the login-authorised access originates from a legitimate person. At the same time, access rights can be evaluated via the COOKIES and released via a site-internal firewall according to the authorisation level. Finally, the COOKIES are used to register irregular access by site administrators from new devices or new locations and to notify other administrators of this.
These COOKIES are only set if a user has login rights. CLEANTALK does not set COOKIES for site visitors without login rights.
If personal data is processed via the COOKIES, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit f. DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in preventing illegitimate access to the site administration and defence against unauthorised administrator access.
We have concluded a data processing agreement with Defiant Inc., with which we oblige the company to protect the data of site visitors and not to pass it on to third parties.
