4. SOCIAL MEDIA
SOCIAL MEDIA BUTTONS
Our pages use buttons (icons) from social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, XING, LinkedIn, Tumblr). To ensure data protection on our website, all icons are individually linked to the respective provider. This prevents the social media buttons integrated on our website from transmitting data to the respective provider when you first enter the page. Only by clicking on the associated button will a direct connection to the provider's server be established (consent). Only then will the respective provider receive the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you are logged into your respective social media account (e.g. Facebook) at the same time, the respective provider can assign your visit to our pages to your user account. This solution represents consent within the meaning of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter a GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.
Our users can share the contents of this site on social networks in compliance with data protection regulations without complete surfing profiles being created by the network operators.
5. ANALYSIS TOOLS AND ADVERTISING
GOOGLE ADWORDS AND GOOGLE CONVERSION TRACKING
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. If you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser stores on the user's computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages on 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 AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for 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, you will not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via your Internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
The storage of “conversion cookies” and the use of this tracking tool are based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.
You can find more information about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking in Google's data protection regulations: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Our website uses the visitor action pixel from Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) to measure conversions.
This allows the behavior of site visitors to be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider's website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimized.
The data collected is anonymous for us as the operator of this website; we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook data usage guidelines. This allows Facebook to enable the placement of advertisements on Facebook pages as well as outside of Facebook. As the site operator, we cannot influence this use of data.
The use of Facebook pixels is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures, including social media.
You can find further information on protecting your privacy in Facebook's data protection information: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
You can also deactivate the “Custom Audiences” remarketing function in the ad settings area at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. To do this you must be logged in to Facebook.
If you do not have a Facebook account, you can deactivate Facebook usage-based advertising on the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance website: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter . No further data is collected or only collected on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
The data entered into the newsletter registration form is processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, the e-mail address and their use to send the newsletter at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected.

YOUTUBE WITH EXTENDED DATA PROTECTION
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube website. The website is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
We use YouTube in extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the extended data protection mode does not necessarily exclude the passing on of data to YouTube partners. This means that YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network regardless of whether you are watching a video.
As soon as you start a YouTube video on our website, a connection to YouTube's servers is established. The YouTube server is informed which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, YouTube can store various cookies on your device after starting a video. With the help of these cookies, YouTube can receive information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve user experience and prevent fraud attempts. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
If necessary, further data processing operations may be triggered after starting a YouTube video, over which we have no influence.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offerings. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR.

OUR SOCIAL MEDIA APPEARANCES
DATA PROCESSING THROUGH SOCIAL NETWORKS
We maintain publicly accessible social media profiles. You can find the social networks we use in detail below.>/p>
Social networks such as Facebook, Google+ etc. can usually comprehensively analyze your user behavior when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media presence triggers numerous data protection-relevant processing operations. In detail:
If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or do not have an account on the respective social media portal. In this case, this data is collected, for example, via cookies that are stored on your device or by recording your IP address.
With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-based advertising can be shown to you inside and outside of the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the relevant social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on all devices on which you are logged in or were logged in.
Our social media presence is intended to ensure the broadest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

To protect your requests via internet forms, we use the reCAPTCHA service from Google Inc. (Google). The query is used to distinguish whether the entry was made by a human or improperly through automated, machine processing. The query includes sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be shortened 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 to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha is not merged with other Google data. The different data protection regulations of Google apply to this data. Further information about Google's data protection guidelines can be found at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de
