Google Tag Manager itself does not create any user profiles, does not store any cookies and does not carry out any independent analyses. It is only used to manage and display the tools integrated within it.

Google Analytics (4)

This website uses functions from the Google Analytics Web analysis service. This is provided by Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The website operator obtains various usage data, such as page impressions, duration of the visit, operating systems used and the origin of the user. This data is compiled in a user ID and assigned to the respective terminal device of the website visitor.

With Google Analytics, we can also record your mouse and scrolling movements and clicks, among other things. Furthermore, Google Analytics uses various modelling approaches to supplement data records and uses machine learning technology for data analysis.

Google Analytics uses technologies that enable the user to be recognised for the purpose of analysing user behaviour (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The information about the use of this website recorded by Google is usually sent to a Google server in the USA where it is stored. The use of this service is based on your consent as per Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. a of the GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time.

With the aid of Google Signals, this data can be used for personalised advertising. If you have a Google account, the visitor data is linked to your Google account by Google Signals and used for personalised advertisements. The data is also used for creating anonymised statistics on the usage behaviour of our users.

 

Google Analytics e-commerce measurement

This website uses the function “e-commerce measurement” from Google Analytics. With the help of e-commerce measurement, the website operator can analyse the purchasing behaviour of website visitors to improve its online marketing campaigns. Consequently, information such as orders placed, average order values, shipping costs and the time between viewing and purchasing a product can be recorded. This data can be compiled by Google under a transaction ID, which is assigned to the respective user or their terminal device.

 

Mouseflow

This website uses Mouseflow. The service provider is Mouseflow Ltd., Flaesketorvet 68, 1711 Copenhagen V, Denmark (Europe) (website: https://www.mouseflow.com).

Mouseflow is a tool for analysing your usage behaviour on this website. With Mouseflow, we can record your mouse and scrolling movements and clicks, among other things. Mouseflow can determine how long your mouse pointer rests on a particular place. Mouseflow uses this information to generate so-called heat maps, which enable them to determine which parts of a website the visitors prefer looking at.

We can also determine how long you stay on a page and when you leave it. We can also determine at which point you cancel your entries in a contact form (so-called conversion funnels).

Moreover, direct feedback can be collected from website visitors with Mouseflow. This function is used for improving the web content of the website operator.

Mouseflow uses technologies that enable the user to be recognised for the purpose of analysing user behaviour (e.g. cookies or the use of device fingerprinting).

Since express consent was requested (e.g. consent to the storing of cookies), processing is performed exclusively based on Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. a of the GDPR; consent can be revoked at any time.

    5.2 Advertising and marketing

Google Ads

The website operator uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising program from Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Ads enables us to display adverts in the Google search engine or on third-party websites when the user enters certain search terms in Google (keyword targeting). Furthermore, targeted adverts can be displayed based on the user data available at Google (e.g. location data and interests) (target group targeting). We as the website operator can evaluate this data quantitatively, for example by analysing which search terms led to the display of our advertisements and how many advertisements led to subsequent clicks.

The use of this service is based on your consent as per Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. a of the GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time.

The European Commission has issued an adequacy decision for the USA, provided that companies are certified under the Data Privacy Framework Programme. Google is certified in this respect and therefore fulfils the requirements of the EU Commission.

 

Facebook & Instagram pixels

This website uses Facebook's visitor action pixel to measure conversions. The provider of this service is Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. However, according to Facebook, the data collected is also transferred to the USA and other third countries.

In this way, the behaviour of site visitors can be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider's website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimised.

The data collected is anonymous for us as the operator of this website; we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a link can be made to the respective user profile and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook Data Usage Policy. As a result, Facebook can enable the placement of adverts on Facebook pages and outside of Facebook. This use of the data cannot be influenced by us as the website operator.

The use of this service is based on your consent as per Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. a of the GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time.

The transmission of data to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.

Facebook is also certified in accordance with the Data Privacy Framework Programme.

If personal data is collected on our website with the help of the tool described here and forwarded to Facebook, we and Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland are jointly responsible for this data processing (Art. 26 of the GDPR). The joint responsibility is limited exclusively to the collection of data and its forwarding on to Facebook. The processing carried out by Facebook after forwarding is not part of the joint responsibility. The obligations incumbent on us jointly have been set out in an agreement on joint processing. The text of the agreement can be found at:

https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum. According to this agreement, we are responsible for providing the data protection information when using the Facebook tool and for the secure implementation of the tool on our website in accordance with data protection law. Facebook is responsible for the data security of Facebook products. You can assert data subject rights (e.g. requests for information) regarding the data processed by Facebook directly with Facebook. If you assert your data subject rights with us, we are obliged to forward them to Facebook.

You can find further information on protecting your privacy in Facebook's privacy policy: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

LinkedIn Insight Tag

This website uses the Insight tag from LinkedIn. The provider of this service is LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.

With the help of the LinkedIn Insight Tag, we receive information about visitors to our website. If a website visitor is registered with LinkedIn, we can, among other things, analyse the key professional data (e.g. career level, company size, country, location, industry and job title) of our website visitors and thus better align our site to the respective target groups. Furthermore, we can use LinkedIn Insight Tags to measure whether visitors to our websites make a purchase or take another action (conversion measurement). Conversion measurement can also be carried out across devices (e.g. from PC to tablet). LinkedIn Insight Tag also offers a retargeting function that we can use to display targeted advertising to visitors to our website outside the website, whereby, according to LinkedIn, no identification of the advertising recipient takes place.

LinkedIn itself also records log files (URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser properties and time of access). The IP addresses are truncated or (if they are used to reach LinkedIn members across devices) hashed (pseudonymised). The direct identifiers of LinkedIn members are erased by LinkedIn after seven days. The remaining pseudonymised data will then be erased within 180 days.

The data collected by LinkedIn cannot be associated with specific individuals by us as the website operator. LinkedIn will store the personal data collected from website visitors on its servers in the USA and use it for its own advertising purposes. Details can be found in LinkedIn's data privacy statement at

https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy#choices-oblig.

The use of LinkedIn Insight is based on Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures, including social media. If express consent was requested, processing is performed exclusively based on Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. a of the GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time.

The transmission of data to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.

You can find details here: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/l/dpa und https://www.linkedin.com/legal/l/eu-sccs.

The European Commission has also issued an adequacy decision for the USA, provided that companies are certified under the Data Privacy Framework Programme. LinkedIn is certified in this respect and therefore fulfils the requirements of the EU Commission.

Object to the analysis of user behaviour and targeted advertising by LinkedIn under the following link: https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out.

Furthermore, LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in their account settings. To prevent LinkedIn from linking data collected on our website with your LinkedIn account, you must log out of your LinkedIn account before visiting our website.

We have concluded an order processing contract with the aforementioned provider in accordance with Art. 28 of the GDPR. This is a contract prescribed by data protection law that ensures that this service provider only processes the personal data of our website visitors upon our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

 

    5.3 Social media and communication

YouTube

This website incorporates videos from YouTube. The operator of these web pages is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in an enhanced data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode prevents YouTube from saving any information about the visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the enhanced data protection mode does not necessarily prevent the transmission of data to YouTube partners. YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network regardless of whether you watch a video.

When you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection is established to YouTube’s servers. The YouTube server is then informed about which of our pages you have visited. When you are logged in to your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to directly assign your surfing behaviour to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, after starting a video, YouTube can save various cookies to your terminal device, or use comparable recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way, YouTube can obtain information about the visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to record video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent fraud attempts.

Once a YouTube video is started, additional data processing operations are triggered over which we have no influence. Processing is performed exclusively based on Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. a of the GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time.

Further information about data protection at YouTube can be found in its privacy statement at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de

 

SOCIAL PLUGINS

Social buttons from social networks are used on our website. They are integrated into the page simply as HTML links, so that a connection to the servers of the respective provider is not yet established when accessing our website. When you click on one of the buttons, the website of the respective social network opens in a new window in your browser. There you can press the "like" or "share" button, for example.

 

Online presence on social media

If you have granted your consent to this to the respective social media operator as per Art. 6 (1) (1) (a) of the GDPR, when visiting our online presences on the aforementioned social media, your data is automatically collected and saved for the purposes of market research and advertising, from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms. These can be used, for example, to switch advertising banners inside and outside the platforms which are presumed to match your interests. Cookies are usually used to this end. For detailed information on the processing and use of the data by the respective social media operator, contact options and your rights and setting options in this regard for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the privacy notices of the provider linked to below.

For business reasons and in order to identify market trends and the wishes of contractual partners and users, we analyse the data we have on business transactions, contracts, enquiries, etc., whereby the group of data subjects may include contractual partners, prospects, customers, visitors and users of our online services.

The analyses are carried out for the purpose of business evaluations, marketing and market research (e.g. to determine customer groups with different characteristics). If available, we can take into account the profiles of registered users together with the information they provide, e.g. on services used. The analyses serve us alone and are not disclosed externally, unless they are anonymous analyses with summarised – i.e. anonymised – values. Furthermore, we take the privacy of users into consideration and process the data for analysis purposes as pseudonymously as possible and, where feasible, anonymously (e.g. as summarised data).

 

7. Safety

We have implemented technical and administrative security precautions to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All our employees, as well as service providers who work for us, are obligated to comply with the valid data protection laws.

Whenever we collect and process personal data, it is encrypted before it is transmitted. This means that your data cannot be misused by any third parties. Our protection measures are subjected to constant, on-going improvement processes and our data privacy statements are constantly updated. Please ensure that you have the current, valid version.

 

8. Processing personal data for promotional purposes

You can object to the use of your personal data for promotional purposes at any time, generally or just for individual measures, without any costs being incurred other than the transmission costs at the basic tariffs.

We authorised under the statutory regulations of §7, Para. 3 of the German Unfair Competition Act to use the email address that you specified upon contract conclusion for the direct marketing of similar goods or services of our own. You receive these product recommendations from us irrespective of whether you have subscribed to a newsletter.

If you do not want to receive such recommendations from us via email, you can object to the use of your email address for this purpose at any time without any costs being incurred other than the transmission costs at the basic tariffs. A notification in text form will suffice for this. A link to unsubscribe is always included in every email.

 

9. Who receives my data?

If we employ a service provider within the context of order processing, we continue to remain responsible for the protection of your data. All processors are contractually obligated to treat your data confidentially and only to process it within the course of service provision. The processors commissioned by us obtain your data, provided they require this data for the fulfilment of their respective task. Such processors may be, for example, IT service providers, who we require for the operation and security of our IT system, as well as commercial publishers and list brokers for our own marketing activities.

This data is provided to group companies, provided this is necessary for contract implementation. Customer data is saved in a company-related and separated manner, whereby our parent company acts as a service provider for the individual participating companies.

In the event of a legal obligation or as part of litigation, authorities, courts and external auditors could be the recipients of your data.

Furthermore, for the purpose of contract initiation and fulfilment, insurance providers, banks, credit agencies and service providers could be the recipients of your data.

 

10. How long will my data be saved for?

We will process your data until the end of the contractual relationship or until the expiry of any legal retention periods that apply (such as under the German Commercial Code, the German Fiscal Code or the German Working Hours Act); and also until the end of any legal disputes for which data is required as evidence.

 

11. What data protection rights do I have?

You have a right at all times to information, rectification, erasure or restriction of processing of your stored data, the right to object to processing and the right to data portability or to lodge a complaint according to the requirements of data protection law.

 

Right to information:
You have the right to obtain information from us as to whether and to what extent we process your personal data.

Right to rectification:
You have the right to demand rectification of any incomplete or inaccurate personal data that we process.

Right to erasure:
You have the right to demand that we erase your data if we process any of it unlawfully, or if the processing excessively interferes with your legitimate data-protection interests. Please note that there may be reasons why we might not be able to effect immediate erasure – e.g., in the case of data storage requirements stipulated by law.

Regardless of whether you exercise your right to erasure, we will immediately and completely erase your data as long as there is no transactional, contractual or legal retention requirement that would prevent this.

 

Right to restriction of processing:

You have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your data if

  • you contest the accuracy of the data, in which case the restriction will apply for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy of the data,
  • the processing is unlawful but you decline erasure of the personal data and instead request the restriction of their use,
  • we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need the data in order to exercise or defend legal claims, or
  • you have objected to the processing of your personal data.

 

Right to data portability:

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. Furthermore, you have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided

  • that we are processing these data on the basis of a revocable consent issued by you or to meet the requirements of a contract between us, and
  • this processing is carried out by automated means.

If technically possible, we can directly transmit your data to another controller upon your request.

 

Right to object:

If we process your data for legitimate reasons, you can object to this processing at any time; this would also apply to profiling based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing is for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims. You may object to the processing of your data for the purposes of direct marketing without providing a reason.

 

Right to lodge a complaint:

If you believe that we are processing your data in violation of German or European data protection law, we ask that you contact us so that we can resolve the matter. Of course, you also have the right to contact the supervisory authority responsible for you, the respective state office for data protection.

If you intend to assert one of the above rights against us, please contact our data protection officer. In case of doubt, we may request additional information to confirm your identity.

 

Do I have an obligation to submit data?

The processing of your data is required for the conclusion/fulfilment of the contract you enter with us. If you do not supply us with this data, we will usually have to decline concluding a contract with you or will no longer be able to implement an existing contract and must ultimately terminate it. However, you are not obligated to grant consent to data processing which is not relevant or not legally required for the fulfilment of a contract.

 

12. Amendments to this data privacy statement

 

We retain the right to amend our data privacy statements if this should be necessary due to new technologies. Please ensure that you have the current, valid version. If any fundamental amendments are made to this data privacy statement, we will post them on our website.
