Google Ads and Google Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google Ads. Ads is an online advertising program from Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

As part of Google Ads, we use what is known as Conversion Tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that are placed on the user’s computer by the internet browser. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of users. 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 directed to that page.

Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of Ads customers. The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are informed about 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 that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can opt out of this usage by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via your internet browser’s 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 web offering and its advertising.

If consent is required for further processing, it will be obtained through the Consent Management Tool when entering the website. Any consent given under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR can be revoked at any time.

For more information on Google Ads and Google Conversion Tracking, please refer to Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

You can configure your browser settings to be informed about the setting of cookies, to allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general, and to enable automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

 

Google Analytics

This website uses the “Google Analytics” service to analyze website usage by visitors, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) and operated by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland). The service uses “cookies” – text files that are stored on your device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

This website uses IP anonymization. The IP addresses of users are shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. This shortening eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. The use of this service is based on our legitimate interest under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, so that we can adapt our offering on our website and its marketing to the needs of website visitors. If consent is required for further processing, it will be obtained through the Consent Management Tool when entering the website.

Google Tag Manager

The Google Tag Manager allows marketers to manage website tags through an interface. However, the Tag Manager itself, which deploys the tags, works without cookies and does not collect personal data. The Tag Manager is only responsible for triggering other tags, which in turn may collect data under certain circumstances. You can find relevant explanations about these third-party providers in this privacy policy. However, the Google Tag Manager does not use this data. If you have disabled or otherwise adjusted your cookie settings, this will be respected for all tracking tags deployed with the Google Tag Manager. In other words, the tool does not change your cookie settings.

Google may request your permission to share certain product data (e.g., your account information) with other Google products to enable certain features, such as simplifying the addition of new conversion tracking tags for Ads. Additionally, Google’s developers may periodically review product usage information to further optimize the product. However, Google will never share data of this kind with other Google products without your consent.

Youtube Plugin

The website uses the web interface to embed YouTube videos from the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The data is provided by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland).

The plugin has been configured to enable the extended data protection mode. According to YouTube’s self-disclosure, information about website visitors is only collected when the video is viewed. If the visitor decides to watch the video, data about their usage behavior is collected by YouTube and, if identifiable, associated with their profile and evaluated. Furthermore, cookies are stored on your device for later identification. As a third-party provider, YouTube can make changes at any time that may not be explained by us. Regardless of the extended data protection mode, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network.

Our legitimate interest in providing videos to our website visitors is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If we require consent under Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, it will be requested, obtained, and can be revoked at any time through our Consent Management Tool.

The transfer to the third country is based on the current standard contractual clauses of the European Commission. https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/
