5. Analytics and advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses functions provided by the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses files known as “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and analyse how you use our website. The information collected by this cookie about your use of our website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it is then stored.

Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f ) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour to optimise its website and advertising.

IP anonymization

We have enabled IP anonymisation on this website. Within the member states of the European Union or other contracting states to the agreement in the European Economic Area, Google will shorten your IP address before it is transferred to the USA. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide the website operator with other services connected to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transferred from your browser for the purposes of Google Analytics is not combined with any other data from Google.

Browser plugin

You can prevent cookies from being stored on your computer by selecting the appropriate browser settings. Please be aware, however, that doing so may mean you will not be able to use all of the functions of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being transferred to and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

Demographics information in Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics Demographics. This function allows reports to be generated containing statements about the age, gender and the interests of visitors to the site. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This data cannot be associated with specific individuals. You can disable this function in your Google account’s advertising settings at any time or forbid the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the “Objection to data collection” section of this policy.

Google AdSense

This website uses Google AdSense, a service that integrates adverts from Google Inc. (“Google”). The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google AdSense uses “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and analyse how you use our website. Google AdSense also uses web beacons (invisible graphic images). Web beacons enable information such as visitor traffic to be analysed on this site.

The information generated by cookies and web beacons about your use of this website (including your IP address) and the distribution of advertising formats is transferred to and stored by Google on a server in the USA. Google may pass on this information to its contractual partners. However, Google will not combine your IP address with other data they store.

AdSense cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour to optimise its website and advertising.

You can prevent cookies from being installed on your computer by selecting the appropriate browser settings. Please be aware, however, that doing so may mean you will not be able to use all of the functions of this website. By using this website, you consent to data about you being processed by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Google Analytics Remarketing

Our website uses Google Analytics Remarketing in combination with the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This feature allows the advertising target groups generated with Google Analytics Remarketing to be linked with the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. Interest-based, personalised advertising, customised according to your previous usage and browsing behaviour on one end device (e.g. cell phone), can then be displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

Once you have given your consent to this service, Google will link your web and app browsing history with your Google Account. The same personalised advertising can then be displayed on any device you use to sign into your Google Account.

To support this feature, Google Analytics collects the Google-authenticated IDs of users temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data for the purposes of defining and generating target groups for cross-device advertising.

You can opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting permanently by disabling personalised advertising in your Google Account. To do this, please go to the link below: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The aggregation of the data collected in your Google Account data is based solely on your consent, which you may give or withdraw from Google (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). For data collection operations not combined with your Google Account (for example, because you do not have a Google Account or have exercised your right to object), the basis for data collection is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing anonymous user behaviour for promotional purposes.

Further information and data protection definitions can be found in Google’s privacy policy at: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

Google AdWords and Google Conversion-Tracking

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).

We use Google AdWords for conversion tracking. When you click on an ad delivered by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is placed on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are placed on the user’s computer by the internet browser. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to identify you as an individual. When the user visits certain pages on this website and the cookie is still valid, we and Google know that the user has clicked on the advert and was forwarded to this page.

Each Google AdWords client receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot, therefore, be tracked by websites operated by AdWords clients. The information collected by conversion cookies is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords clients who have decided to use conversion tracking. These clients find out the total number of users who have clicked on their advert and were forwarded to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to identify users as individuals. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can opt out by deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie in your browser settings. You will then no longer be included in conversion tracking statistics.

Conversion cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour to optimise its website and advertising.

More information on Google AdWords and Google conversion tracking can be found in Google’s privacy policy: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

You can adjust your browser settings so that you receive a notification when a cookie is placed on your computer and can accept them on a case-by-case basis, decline cookies in certain situations or in general, and automatically delete cookies when you close your browser. If you disable cookies, you may not be able to use all of the functions on this website.

Facebook Pixel

Our website measures conversion using Facebook pixel, provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).

pixel is used to track visitor behaviour after they click on a Facebook advert and are forwarded to our website. This information can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook adverts for statistical purposes and market research and to optimise future advertising measures.

The data collected remains anonymous to us, the operator of this website, and we cannot use it to draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. This data is, however, stored and processed by Facebook, who may be able to connect it to a particular user profile and use it for their own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook Data Use Policy. Facebook can then use this data to display ads on Facebook and pages outside of Facebook. The website operator has no influence on how this data is used by Facebook.

Further information on protecting your privacy can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

You can also disable the Custom Audiences remarketing feature in your Facebook ad settings at: https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen You must be logged into Facebook to do this.
