Use of Google Inc.’s remarketing or “similar target audiences” feature
The provider uses the Google Inc. (“Google”) remarketing and “similar target audiences” feature on the website. This feature enables the provider to address website visitors with targeted advertising and to personalise the provider’s website for the visitor, as interest-based advertisements are activated when they visit other websites in the Google Display network.
Further information on Google Remarketing and Google’s privacy statement can be found at: http://www.google.com/privacy/ads/
Use of Google AdWords Conversion Tracking
We use the online advertisement programme, “Google AdWords” and Conversion Tracking as a part of Google AdWords. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service belonging to Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google"). When you click on an advertisement shown by Google, a cookie for Conversion Tracking is stored on your computer. These cookies become invalid after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we realise and Google may realise that you have clicked on the advertisement and proceeded to that page.
Every Google AdWords customer has a different cookie. Thus, it is not possible to be able to track cookies via the websites of AdWords customers.
The information that is gathered by means of the conversion cookie, serve to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers, who have opted for conversion tracking. In doing so, the customer discovers the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. They will however, not receive any information which allows them to personally identify the user. If you would not like to take part in tracking, you can object to this use, by preventing the installation of cookies, by disabling the appropriate settings on your browser (disable option). You are then not included in the conversion tracking statistics. Further information on Google’s privacy statement can be found at: http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/
Use of Google Analytics
Use of Piwik
Data is collected and stored on this website by Piwik software (www.piwik.org) for marketing and optimisation purposes. User profiles can be created from this data, under a pseudonym. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files, which are stored locally in the site visitor’s internet browser cache. Cookies enable the internet browser to be recognised. Without the explicit consent of the person concerned, the data collected with Piwik technology cannot be used to personally identify the website visitors and cannot be merged with the personal data of the pseudonym owner. The data collection and storage can be revoked at any time with future effect.
Use of Facebook Plugin
Plug-ins from the social network site facebook.com (which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook" )) are used on this website.
If you view our website via webpages with such a plug-in, a connection is established with the Facebook servers and the plug-in is featured on the website via a notification to your browser. The internet pages which you have visited are then transmitted to the Facebook server. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plug-in functions (e.g. by clicking the “Like” button, leaving a comment), this information is also assigned to your Facebook account, which you can prevent by logging out before using the plug-in. You can find more information on Facebook’s collection and usage of data and about your rights and options concerning your privacy protection in Facebook’s data protection notice.
Use of Google “+1” button
The “+1” button from the social network, Google Plus (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043 USA, (subsequently “Google”) is used on this website. If you view our website via webpages with a “+1” button, a connection is established with the Google servers in the USA and the button is featured on the website via a notification to your browser. Here, both your IP address as well as information about which of our web pages you have visited, are sent to the Google server. This applies regardless of whether you have registered with and/or logged in to Google Plus. The information will still be sent even with unregistered users or users who have not logged in. The “+1” button is not used to record your internet visit. Google does not permanently record your browsing history with the display of the “+1” button and does not evaluate your visit to a page with the “+1” button in any other way. Google stores data about your visit for around two weeks for system maintenance and troubleshooting purposes. This data is not however organised according to individual profiles, user names or URLs and is not forwarded to us.
If you are also a Google Plus member and are logged in at the same time as you are using the plug-in, the information collected about your website visit is linked to your Google Plus account and made known to other users. Even in the case of interactions, which are possible with various Google plug-ins, the appropriate information about you is collected, transmitted to Google and stored. You can see an overview of the different types of Google plug-ins here: https://developers.google.com/+/plugins
In the event that you have made your profile publicly available in the Google Plus settings, your “+1” can be displayed by Google as indicators, together with your profile name and photo in Google Services (such as in search results or in your Google profile) or in other places on websites and advertisements on the internet. If you do not want Google to associate the collected information to your Google Plus profile, you must log out of Google Plus before visiting our page.
You can find more information on Google’s collection and usage of data and about your rights and options concerning your privacy protection, in Google’s data protection notice.
You also have the option of preventing Google plug-ins from loading by installing the appropriate add-ons in your browser.
