7. Web Analytics & Third-Party Services
The legal basis for the use of locally deployed web analysis tools is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR, i.e., the protection of our legitimate interests in consideration of the interests of our website visitors. Our interest is the analysis of the use of our website by our website visitors, to improve our offer and to make it more interesting for you as a user. If the analysis tool used also serves other purposes or we use it for other interests, we will inform you about this directly in the explanations for the respective analysis tool.
The legal basis for the use of third-party providers to perform web analytics is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a.
a) Google Adwords Conversion
- We use the offer of Google AdWords on our website to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media (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.
- These advertising materials are delivered by Google via so-called "Ad Servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity 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 (marking 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 the website of an Adwords customer and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Adwords customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising tools; in particular, we cannot identify users based on this information.
- Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google's server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google using this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the relevant 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 learn and store your IP address.
- The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Your consent is given based on the cookie banner used on our website. Your personal data will also be processed by Google in the USA, this transfer and processing will only take place based on the EU standard data protection clauses, which Google fully acknowledges.

- Furthermore, data processing beyond this only takes place if you have consented to Google linking your Internet & app browsing history with your Google account and using information from your Google account to personalize ads that you view on the web.
- If you are logged into Google while visiting our website, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data to create and define target group lists for cross-device remarketing.

The legal basis for the use of the plug-in is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR. Consent is given through your selection in the cookie banner.
- By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding sub-page of our website. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether there is no user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.
d) Google Web Fonts
- This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated using cookies about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
- The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.
- You may refuse the storage of cookies by deselecting the category "Analytics & Performance" in the cookie banner. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will learn and store your IP address and other identifiers.

- When you visit one of our pages equipped with a Vimeo plugin, your browser connects to the servers of Vimeo. This is a service of the provider Vimeo Inc, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

This includes your IP address, technical information about your browser type, operating system or very basic device information. In addition, Vimeo stores information about which website uses the Vimeo service and what actions (web activities) you perform on our website. These web activities include, for example, the duration of the session, the bounce rate or the button you clicked on our website with an integrated Vimeo function.
- If you are logged in as a registered Vimeo member, more data can usually be collected because more cookies may already have been set in your browser. In addition, your actions on our website are directly linked to your Vimeo account. To avoid this, you can log out of Vimeo while "surfing" our website. (4) We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country in the sense of EU data protection law. American companies are obliged to disclose personal data to the security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that U.S. authorities (e.g., intelligence agencies) may process your data on U.S. servers for monitoring purposes.
