Specifically, we use the following tracking cookies (and tracking pixels) for promotional purposes:9.4.1 Google Adwords with conversion tracking
This Website uses the online advertising service Google Adwords with conversion operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).
We use the service to place ads on the results page of a Google search or a Google advertising network website using Google (so-called AdWords). Our purpose is to draw your attention to our offers. Conversion tracking enables us to measure how successful our individual advertising measures are by means of certain parameters (e.g. insertion of advertisements or clicks by the user).
When you click on an ad placed by Google, Google stores a conversion tracking cookie on your computer. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (mark that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.
These cookies help Google recognize your browser. If you visit certain websites on an AdWords customer's website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer may recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to the website. A different cookie is assigned to each AdWords customer. Cookies therefore cannot be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. We do not collect and process any personal data when using Google AdWords. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google with the total number of users who clicked on an ad and were redirected to a website with a conversion tracking tag. On the basis of these evaluations we can recognize which of the used advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
Due to the technologies used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to a Google server in the USA. The transfer of your information to a third country outside the EU is covered by an adequacy decision of the Commission within the meaning of Art. 45 GDPR, as Google has self-certified its adherence to the principles of the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework
). By integrating AdWords with conversion tracking, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our web presence or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate the data with your account. Even if you are not registered or logged in to Google, it is possible that Google may obtain and store your IP address.
Further information on data processing in the context of Google AdWords can be found at http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy
The controller has integrated DoubleClick by Google components on this website. DoubleClick is a brand of Google, under which mainly special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers. DoubleClick by Google's operating company is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
DoubleClick by Google transmits data to the DoubleClick server with every impression, click, or other activity. Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to the affected person's browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. The purpose of the cookie is to optimize and display advertising. The cookie is used, among other things, to serve and display user-relevant advertisements, as well as to generate reports on advertising campaigns or to improve them. Furthermore, the cookie is used to avoid multiple impressions of the same advertising.
DoubleClick uses a cookie ID required to complete the technical process. For example, the cookie ID is needed to display an ad in a browser. DoubleClick can also use the cookie ID to see which ads have already appeared in a browser to avoid duplication. DoubleClick also allows the cookie ID to track conversions. Conversions are captured, for example, when a user has previously shown a DoubleClick ad and then, with the same internet browser, makes a purchase on the advertiser's website.
A DoubleClick cookie does not contain any personally identifiable information. However, a DoubleClick cookie may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier identifies the campaigns the user was already in contact with.
Each time one of the pages of this website is accessed and a DoubleClick component is integrated, the Internet browser on the subject's information technology system is automatically prompted by the relevant DoubleClick component for purposes to submit online advertising and commission billing to Google. As part of this technical process, Google will be aware of data that Google uses to create commission billing. Google can understand, among other things, that the person has clicked on certain links on our website.
The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, cookies already set by Google can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs.
