Your contact data will be used strictly for notifications about updates owed by us and will only be processed by us to the extent necessary for the respective information.

To process your order, we also work with the following service provider(s), who support us in whole or in part in the execution of closed contracts. Certain personal data is transmitted to these service providers in accordance with the following information.

8.2 Use of Payment Service Providers

PayPal

On this website, one or more online payment methods from the following provider are available: PayPal (Europe) S.a.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg.

When selecting a payment method from the provider where you pay in advance, the payment data you provided during the order process (including name, address, bank and credit card information, currency, and transaction number) will be passed on to the provider in accordance with Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR. In this case, your data is only disclosed to the extent necessary for the payment transaction with the provider.

When selecting a payment method where we pay in advance, you will also be asked to provide certain personal data (first and last name, street, house number, postal code, city, date of birth, email address, telephone number, and, if applicable, data on an alternative payment method) during the order process.

In such cases, to maintain our legitimate interest in determining your ability to pay, we will transmit this data to the provider for the purpose of a credit check in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The provider checks whether the payment option selected by you can be granted with regard to payment and/or default risks based on the personal data you provided, as well as other data (such as shopping cart, invoice amount, order history, payment experiences).

The credit report may include probability values (so-called score values). Insofar as score values are incorporated into the result of the credit report, they have their basis in a scientifically recognized mathematical-statistical procedure. Address data is one of the factors taken into account in calculating score values, among other things.

You can object to the processing of your data at any time by sending a message to us or to the provider. However, the provider may still be entitled to process your personal data if this is necessary for the proper processing of payments under the contract.

Google AdSense

This website uses Google AdSense, an online advertising service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).

The information generated by the cookie and/or web beacon (including your IP address) about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there. This may also involve a transfer to Google LLC servers in the USA.

Google uses the information obtained to evaluate your usage behavior with regard to AdSense ads. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google AdSense will not be merged with other Google data. The information collected by Google may be transferred to third parties if required by law and/or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

10) Retargeting/ Remarketing und Conversion-Tracking

10.1 Facebook Pixel for Creating Custom Audiences with Extended Data Matching (with Cookie Consent Tool)

Within our online offering, we use the service “Facebook Pixel” from the following provider in extended data matching mode: Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).

When a user clicks on an advertisement we placed on Facebook, the “Facebook Pixel” extends the URL of our linked page with a parameter. This URL parameter is then added to the user’s browser after redirection by a cookie set by our linked page itself. In addition, this cookie collects specific customer data, such as the email address, which we collect on our website linked to the Facebook ad during processes such as purchases, account registrations, or sign-ups (extended data matching). The cookie is then read and allows the transmission of data, including specific customer data, to Facebook.

We use “Facebook Pixel” with extended data matching to make our Facebook ads (so-called “Facebook Ads”) more effective and ensure that they correspond to the interests of users or have certain features (e.g., interests in specific topics or products determined based on visited websites) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”).

Furthermore, we analyze the effectiveness of our ads by tracking whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on an ad (conversion). Compared to the standard version of “Facebook Pixel,” the extended data matching feature helps us better measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns by capturing more attributed conversions.

All transmitted data is stored and processed by Facebook, allowing it to be assigned to the respective user profile, and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with Facebook’s data usage policies (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). The data may allow Facebook and its partners to place ads on and off Facebook.

All the processing described above, especially the setting of cookies for reading information on the used end device, is only carried out if you have given us your explicit consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the “Cookie Consent Tool” provided on the website.

We have concluded a data processing agreement with the provider, which ensures the protection of data of our site visitors and prohibits unauthorized disclosure to third parties.

The information generated by Facebook is usually transferred to a Facebook server and stored there; in this context, there may also be a transfer to servers of Meta Platforms Inc. in the USA.

For data transfers to the USA, the provider has joined the EU-US Privacy Shield, which, based on an adequacy decision by the European Commission, ensures compliance with the European data protection level.

10.2 Google Ads Conversion Tracking

This website uses the online advertising program “Google Ads,” and within Google Ads, the conversion tracking of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).

We use Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertisements (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. Our aim is to show you advertisements that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you, and to achieve a fair calculation of the advertising costs incurred.

The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked across the websites of Google Ads customers. The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have decided to use conversion tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.

As part of the use of Google Ads, personal data may also be transferred to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

To address users who we receive data from in the context of business or business-related relationships in a more targeted manner, we use a customer matching function as part of Google Ads. To do this, we electronically transmit one or more files with aggregated customer data (especially email addresses and phone numbers) to Google. Google does not have access to clear data but automatically encrypts the information in the customer files using a special algorithm during the transmission process. Google can then only use the encrypted information to assign it to existing Google accounts that the individuals have set up. This allows personalized advertising to be displayed across all Google services associated with the respective Google account.

The transmission of customer data to Google only takes place if you have given us explicit consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. Further information on Google’s data protection measures regarding the customer matching function can be found here: https://support.google.com/google-ads/answer/6334160?hl=de&ref_topic=10550182 Google’s privacy policy can be viewed here: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/

10.4 Google Marketing Platform

This website uses the online marketing tool Google Marketing Platform operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“GMP”).

GMP uses cookies to display ads relevant to users, improve campaign performance reports, or prevent a user from seeing the same ads multiple times. Google collects information about which ads are displayed in which browser via a cookie ID and can thus prevent them from being shown multiple times. In addition, GMP can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions that relate to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees a GMP ad and later, when using the same browser, visits the advertiser’s website and buys something through this website. According to Google, GMP cookies do not contain personal information. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to 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 inform you according to our level of knowledge as follows: By integrating GMP, Google receives information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an ad 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, there is a possibility that the provider will find out and store your IP address. As part of the use of GMP, personal data may also be transferred to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

All the processing described above, especially the setting of cookies for reading information on the used end device, is only carried out if you have given us your explicit consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
