9) Online Marketing

9.1 Facebook pixel for creating custom audiences with advanced data matching (with cookie consent tool)
Within our online offer, the so-called "Facebook pixel" of the social network Facebook is used in the mode of extended data comparison, which is operated by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook").
On the basis of their express consent, if a user clicks on an advertisement placed by us on Facebook, the URL of our linked page will be appended by Facebook Pixel. After forwarding, this URL parameter is then written to the user's browser via cookie, which our linked page sets itself. In addition, specific customer data such as the e-mail address, which we collect on our website linked to the Facebook ad for transactions such as purchases, account logins or registrations, is recorded by this cookie (extended data comparison). The cookie is then read by the Facebook pixel and enables the data, including specific customer data, to be forwarded to Facebook.
With the help of the Facebook pixel with extended data comparison, Facebook is able to precisely determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel with extended data synchronization in order to only display the Facebook ads we have placed to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products, which are determined based on the websites visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”). With the help of the Facebook pixel with extended data comparison, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the user and are not annoying. This allows us to further evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by understanding whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion"). Compared to the standard version of Facebook Pixel, the advanced data matching feature helps us to better measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns by recording more attributed conversions.
All transmitted 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 ( https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ ). The data can enable Facebook and its partners to place advertisements on and outside of Facebook.
These processing operations only take place if you have given your express consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
The information generated by Facebook is usually transmitted to a Facebook server and stored there. This can also result in transmission to the servers of Meta Platforms Inc. in the USA. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the “Cookie Consent Tool” provided on the website.


- Google Ads conversion tracking
This website uses the online advertising program "Google Ads" and, as part of Google Ads, conversion tracking by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). We use Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising material (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. We are pursuing the goal of showing you advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of the advertising costs incurred.
The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an Ads ad placed by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. This means that cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Google Ads customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers find out 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 with which users can be personally identified.
As part of the use of Google Ads, personal data may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. come in the US.
Details on the processing triggered by Google Ads Conversion Tracking and how Google handles data from websites can be found here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites

In order to address users whose data we have received in the context of business or business-like relationships in an even more interest-based advertising manner, we use a customer comparison function as part of Google Ads. To do this, we electronically transmit one or more files with aggregated customer data (mainly email addresses and telephone numbers) to Google. Google does not have access to clear data here, but automatically encrypts the information in the customer files during the transmission process using a special algorithm. The encrypted information can then only be used by Google to assign it to existing Google accounts that the data subject has set up. This enables personalized advertising to be played out via all Google services linked to the respective Google account.
Customer data is only transmitted to Google if you have given us your express consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. Further information on Google's data protection measures in relation to the customer comparison function can be found here: https://support.google.com/google-ads/answer/6334160?hl=de&ref_topic=10550182

GMP uses cookies to serve ads relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads multiple times. Google uses a cookie ID to record which ads are displayed in which browser and can thus prevent them from being displayed more than once. In addition, GMP can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions that are related to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees a GMP ad and later, using the same browser, goes to the advertiser's website and buys something through that website. According to Google, GMP cookies do not contain any personal information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server.
