In the context of  Google AdWords we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an  ad taken out by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are  small text files that the Internet browser places on the user's computer. These  cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If  the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet  expired, Google and ourselfes can recognise that the user has clicked on the ad  and has been redirected to this page.
Each Google AdWords  customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked through the  websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion  cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have  opted for conversion tracking. Customers see the total number of users who  clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking  tag. However, they will not receive any information that personally identifies  users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to this  use by easily deactivating the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via your  Internet browser under User Settings. You will then not be included in the  conversion tracking statistics. Conversion cookies are stored on the basis of  Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

We use “Google  reCAPTCHA” (below referred to as “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. The provider is  Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This website uses  remarketing tags, such as Facebook Pixel from the social network Facebook, 1601  South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The remarketing tags  establish a direct connection between the Facebook server and the user's  browser when visiting our website. This will transmit to the Facebook server  which of our websites the user has visited with his IP address. This  information is available to us for use when displaying Facebook Ads. This  allows the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements to be evaluated for  statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be  optimised. Facebook assigns this information to the user’s personal Facebook  account. We expressly point out that we are not aware of the content of the  transmitted data or its use by Facebook. The collected data is anonymous to us,  and we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users.

2.3.5  Social media plug-ins
Our website also uses  programs (plug-ins) from the following social networks:
  • Facebook
  • YouTube
  • Instagram
  • Vimeo.

These are offers from  the U.S. companies:
Facebook Inc. (1601 p.  California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA),

Instagram Inc. (1601  Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA), and

The plug-ins are  indicated on our website by the logos of the respective companies or e.g. the  addition “Like” and/or “Recommend”. When you visit a website on our Internet  site that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection  to the servers of the respective company, which in turn transmits the content  of the plug-in to your browser and integrates it into the displayed website.  This will forward the information that you have visited our website to such  companies. We have no influence on the data collected and on data processing,  nor are we aware of the full extent 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. The plug-in provider stores the data  collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of  advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such  an evaluation takes place in particular (also for users who are not logged in)  for the representation of advertisement tailored to suit a market need and in  order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our  website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles,  and you need to contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right.  Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social  networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer 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. If you are logged in to these companies  via your personal user account during your visit to our website, they can  assign the website visit to this account. By interacting with plug-ins, e.g. by  clicking the "Like" button or leaving a comment, this information is  transmitted directly to these companies and stored there.
If you visit one of our  pages equipped with a Vimeo plugin, a connection to the Vimeo servers is  established. The Vimeo server will be informed which of our pages you have  visited. Vimeo also obtains your IP address. This also applies if you are not  logged in to Vimeo or do not have an account with Vimeo. The information  collected by Vimeo is transmitted to the Vimeo server in the USA. If you are  logged in to your Vimeo account, you allow Vimeo to associate your surfing  behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging  out of your Vimeo account.
For more information on  the handling of user data, please refer to Vimeo's privacy policy at: https://vimeo.com/privacy
If you wish to prevent  such data transmission, you must log out of your account before visiting our  website.
