Use of Google Adwords Conversion / Remarketing
We may use the Google Adwords offer to draw attention to our offers with the help of advertising materials (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. We are therefore interested in displaying you advertisements that are of interest to you, increasing the attractiveness of our website for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
These advertising materials are delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as displaying the advertisements or clicks by the users. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a cookie in your PC. These cookies usually expire 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 wants to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.
These cookies allow Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer’s website and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked through the websites of Adwords customers. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the advertising measures mentioned above. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations, we can identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising materials, in particular we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information.
Due to the marketing tools we may use, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to Google’s server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: By integrating AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement 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 find out and store your IP address.
You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in several ways:
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and stored by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted after closing the browser. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them or the storage period expires. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.
In some cases, cookies are used to simplify website processes by storing settings (e.B. keeping already selected options). If individual cookies implemented by us also process personal data, the processing will be carried out in accordance with Art. 1 lit. b GDPR either for the implementation of the contract or in accordance with Article 6 paragraph. 1 lit. f GDPR to safeguard our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website as well as a customer-friendly and effective design of the website visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only on a case-by-case basis, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed.
The cookie settings can be managed under the following links depending on the browser used:
• Internet Explorer
You can also manage the cookies of many companies and functions that are used for advertising individually. To do this, use the appropriate user tools:
• https://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or
Most browsers also offer a so-called “do-not-track” feature, which allows you to specify that you don’t want to be “tracked” by websites. When this feature is enabled, the browser informs ad networks, websites, and applications that you do not want to be tracked for behavioral advertising and the like.
