Cookies

In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies or other technologies like pixels (hereinafter referred to as “Cookies”) are used on your computer when visiting and using my website. Cookies are small text files that are stored by your browser on your device to save certain information or image files, such as pixels. The next time you visit my website on the same device, the information saved in the cookies will subsequently be transmitted either to my website (“First Party Cookie”) or to another website to which the cookie belongs (“Third Party Cookie”).

Through the information saved and returned, the respective website recognizes that you have already accessed and visited it with the browser you use on that device. I use this information to be able to design and display the website in an optimum way in line with your preferences. In that respect, only the cookie itself is identified on your device. Beyond this extent, your personal data will only be saved upon your express consent or if it is strictly necessary to be able to use the service offered to and accessed by you accordingly.

This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:

Technical cookies (Type A) Functional and Performance Cookies (Type B) Consent based Cookies (e.g. Marketing) (Type C) You can find more information on the cookie types set and used in the description of the tools implemented on my websites in this privacy policy.

2.1.1. Technical cookies (Type A) Technical cookies guarantee functions without which you cannot use my web pages as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by us and are therefore first party cookies. This means that all information stored in the cookies will be returned to my website.

Technical cookies serve, for example, to ensure that you as a registered user always remain logged in when accessing various subpages of my website and thus do not have to re-enter your login data every time you access a new page.

The use of technical cookies on my website is possible without your consent. For this reason, technical cookies cannot be activated or deactivated individually. However, you can deactivate cookies in your browser at any time (see below).

Legal basis: Art. 6 (1) b GDPR. (situation similar to a contract)

2.1.2. Functional and Performance Cookies (Type B) Functional cookies enable my website to store information already provided (such as registered name or language selection) and to offer you improved and more personalized functions based on this information. These cookies collect and store only pseudonymised information so that they cannot track your movements on other websites.

Performance cookies collect information about how my websites are used in order to improve their attractiveness, content and functionality. These cookies help us, for example, to determine whether and which subpages of my website are visited and in which content users are particularly interested. In particular, I record the number of visits to a page, the number of subpages accessed, the time spent on my website, the order of the pages visited, which search terms led you to us, the country, region and, if applicable, the city from which access is made, and the proportion of mobile devices accessing my websites. I also capture movement, clicks and scrolling with the computer mouse to understand which areas of my website are of particular interest to users. As a result, I can tailor the content of my website more specifically to the needs of my users and optimize my offering. The IP address of your computer transmitted for technical reasons is automatically made anonymous and does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the individual user.

The functional and performance cookies are so-called “strictly necessary” cookies within the meaning of the ePrivacy Directive 2002/58 EC, which do not require consent.

Web Analytics

Google Analytics

Purpose/Information This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Ltd. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses a specific form of cookie, which is stored on your computer and enables an analysis of your use of my website. The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

I would like to point out that Google Analytics has been expanded on this website to include the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure the anonymized recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). Due to the IP anonymization on this website, your IP address is shortened by Google within the territory of the EU and the Treaty States of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Google uses this information on my behalf to analyze your use of this website in order to compile reports on website activities and provide additional services related to website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

I use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the usage of my website. I can use the statistics obtained to improve my offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. In addition, I gain information about the functionality of my site (for example to detect navigation problems).

In the configuration of Google Analytics, I ensured that Google receives this data as a processor and is therefore not allowed to use this data for its own purposes. The “Google Analytics Advertising Features” configuration is independent from this and is described in the appropriate section below, provided it is also used on this website.

Used Cookies: Type B. For further information, see Cookie Section.

Transfer to third countries are possible. As an appropriate safeguard I have agreed on standard contractual clauses pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR. More information on this topic is published here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside-eu_en.

Deletion/Objection: You can deactivate Google Analytics via the Cookie Settings here.

Legal basis: Art. 6 (1) f GDPR. (legitimate interest)

Social Plug-ins

Social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) of social networks are used on my websites, in particular the “Share” or “Share with friends” button of Facebook, whose website facebook.com is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Facebook Ireland Limited, Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland, is responsible for Facebook.com in Europe. The plug-ins are usually marked with a Facebook logo.

Besides Facebook, I use plug-ins from “Twitter” (Provider: Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103), “LinkedIn” (Provider: LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, California 94043, USA), “XING” (Provider: Xing AG, Gänsemarkt 43, 20354 Hamburg, Germany) and “Pinterest” (Provider: Pinterest Inc., 808 Brannan Street San Francisco, CA 94103, USA).

For data protection reasons, I have deliberately decided against utilising direct plug-ins of social networks on my websites. Instead, I use the “Shariff” solution. With the aid of Shariff, I can determine for ourselves when and whether data is transmitted to the operator of the respective social network. For this reason, there is no automatic data transmission to social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, XING or Pinterest once you access my website. Data will be transmitted to social networks only if you actively click on the respective social network button. In this case, your web browser starts a connection to the respective social network’s servers. By clicking on the respective button (e.g. “Pass on”, “Share” or “Share with friends”) you agree that your browser will produce a link to the respective social network’s servers and transmit usage data to the respective operator of the social network and vice versa. I have no influence upon the nature and extent of the data that is then gathered by the social networks.

The social network providers 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 not logged in users) for the representation of demand-fair advertisement and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on my website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in providers to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins I offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that I can improve my offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.

The data is transferred regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in providers and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected with us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in providers also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. I recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as this way you can avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.

For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the data protection declarations of these providers as notified below. They will also provide you with further information about your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.

YouTube-Videos

I have integrated YouTube videos into my website, which are stored on http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from my website. These are all integrated in the “extended data protection mode”, i.e. no data about you as a user will be transmitted to YouTube, if you do not click on the videos to start playing them. Only when you play the videos the data referred to in the next paragraph will be transferred to YouTube. I have no influence on this data transfer.

By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of my website. In addition, the data specified in Section 2 of this privacy policy will be transmitted. This is independent of whether YouTube provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such evaluation takes place in particular (even for unlogged-in users) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on my website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by YouTube, please refer to the privacy policy. There you will also find further information about your rights and setting options to protect your privacy:

Online Advertising

2.6.1. Google Ads (formerly Google Adwords) Information/purpose: 2.6.1.1. Google Ads Conversion I use the services of Google Ads to draw attention to my attractive offers with the help of advertising materials (so-called Google Ads) on external websites. I can determine in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns how successful the individual advertising measures are. I are interested in showing you advertisements that are of interest to you, to make my website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.

The advertising materials are delivered by Google via so-called “Ad Servers”. For this purpose, I use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the insertion of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access my website via a Google ad, Google Ads stores a cookie on your device. 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 enable Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer’s website and the cookie stored on their device has not expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Ads customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Ads customers. I do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. I only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations I can recognize which of the used advertising measures are particularly effective. I do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, I cannot identify users on the basis of this information.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically starts a direct connection to the Google server. I have no influence on the extent and the further use of the data which are raised by the use of this tool by Google and inform you therefore according to my knowledge: By the integration of Ads conversion Google receives the information that you called the appropriate part of my Internet appearance or clicked an announcement of us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the providers may obtain and store your IP address.

I use the remarketing function within the Google Ads service. The remarketing function allows us to present to users of my website advertisements based on their interests on other websites within the Google advertising network (in Google search or on YouTube, so-called “Google ads” or on other websites). For this purpose, the interaction of users on my website is analyzed, e.g. which offers the user was interested in, in order to be able to display targeted advertising to users even after visiting my website on other pages. To do this, Google stores cookies in the browsers of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google Display Network. This cookie is used to record the visits of these users. The number is used to uniquely identify a web browser on a particular device.

Used Cookies: Type C. For further information, see Cookie Section.

(Website) Facebook Custom Audiences / Conversion (“Facebook Pixel”)

Information/purpose:

This website uses the so-called “Facebook Pixel” of the social network “Facebook” for the following purposes:

Facebook (website) Custom Audiences I use the Facebook pixel for remarketing purposes to be able to contact you again within 180 days. This allows us to display interest-based advertisements (“Facebook Ads”) to users of the website when they visit the social network “Facebook” or other websites also using this tool. In this way, I pursue the interest in displaying advertisements that are of interest to you in order to make my website or offers more interesting for you.

Facebook conversion I also use the Facebook Pixel to ensure that my Facebook Ads match the potential interest of users and are not annoying. With the help of the Facebook Pixel, I can track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to my website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion”).

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Facebook server as soon as you have agreed to the use of cookies requiring your consent. Through the integration of the Facebook pixel, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of my internet presence or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account.

The processing of this data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook’s data policy. Special information and details about the Facebook pixel and its functionality can also be found in the Facebook help area.

Used Cookies: Type C. For further information, see Cookie Section.
