You can of course withdraw your declaration(s) of consent at any time with effect for the future. To do this, please consult the responsible party in accordance with § 1.

The personal data of the party concerned are deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of their storage ceases to apply. Storage beyond this may be carried out if this is intended by the European or national legislator in Union directives, laws or other regulations by which we are governed. Blocking or deletion of the data is also carried out if a storage period specified by the stipulated standards expires unless it is necessary to continue to store the data in order to conclude or fulfil an agreement.

§ 2 Definitions

The data protection declaration is based on the definitions used by the European regulatory authority in accordance with the decree of the General Data Protection Regulation of the EU (referred to in the following as “GDPR”). The Data Protection Regulation should be easily legible and understandable. To ensure this, the main terms are described in the following:

a) Personal data designates all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (referred to in the following as the “party concerned”). A natural person is considered as identifiable if he or she can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, identification number, location details, online identification or to one or more particular characteristics which are an expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychic, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.

b) The party concerned is every identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the party responsible for processing.

c) Processing is any procedure carried out with or without the aid of automated processes or any such series of procedures in connection with personal data, such as the collection, logging, organisation, classification, storage, adjustment or alteration, reading out, querying, use, publication via transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.

d) Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data which consists of these personal data being used to evaluate certain personal aspects which refer to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects with regard to work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, place of abode or relocation of this natural person.

e) Pseudonymisation refers to processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific party concerned insofar as this additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data are not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.

f) The person responsible or the person responsible for processing is the natural or legal entity, authority, institution or other office which decides solely or together with others on the purposes and means of processing of personal data. If the purposes and means of this processing are stipulated by European Union law of the member states, the responsible party or the certain criteria of his / her nomination can be stipulated in accordance with European Union law or the law of the member states.

g) The order processor is a natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or other office which processes personal data on behalf of the person responsible.

h) The recipient is a natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or other office to whom personal data are divulged, regardless of whether this is a third party or not. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a certain inspection order in accordance with European Law or the law of member states are not deemed to be recipients.

i) A third person is a natural person or legal entity, authority, institution or other office apart from the party concerned, the person responsible, the order processor and the persons who are authorised under the direct responsibility of the party responsible or of the order processor to process the personal data.

j) Permission is every declaration of intent voluntarily issued by the party concerned for the relevant case in an informed manner and unambiguously in the form of a declaration or any other clear confirmatory action with which the party concerned indicates that he / she agrees to processing of his or her personal data.

§ 3 Provision of the website and creation of logfiles

(1) In the event of use of the website for information purposes only, i.e. without subscribing or providing us with other information, we automatically collect the following data and information from the computer accessing the website:

  • the IP address of the user
  • information on the browser type and version used
  • the operating system of the user
  • date and time of access
  • websites from which the system of the user accesses the website.

The data are stored in the logfiles of our server. These data are not stored together with other personal data of the user. When using these data, we do not draw any conclusions with regard to the party concerned. The data are only evaluated for statistical purposes.

(2) The legal basis for temporary storage of the logfiles is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence (f) GDPR.

(3) Temporary storage of the data by the system is necessary in order to
a) deliver the website to the computer of the user. To this end, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.
b) optimise the contents of our website and advertising thereof
c) ensure operability of our IT systems and the technology of our website
d) provide law enforcement agencies with the necessary information for prosecution in the event of a cyber-attack.

For these purposes, our legitimate interest also lies in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (f) GDPR.

(4) The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose of their collection – in this case when no longer used. In the case of storage of the data in logfiles, this is after a maximum of seven days. Storage is possible beyond this. In this case, the IP addresses are deleted or anonymised so that it is no longer possible to assign them to the calling client.

(5) Data logging to provide the website and storage of the data in logfiles is essential to operate the website, for which reason it cannot be withdrawn.

§ 4 Use of cookies

(1) This website uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files which are transmitted by a server to your browser as soon as you visit a website and are stored locally on your terminal (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone etc.) and filed on your computer and provide the user (i.e. us) with certain information. Cookies do not damage the computer and do not contain any viruses. Every cookie contains a characteristic string (so-called cookie ID) which allows a clear identification of the browser when called again.

(2) We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly, for example to help you to fill in forms more easily or to give you access to our multimedia content. Some elements of our website make it necessary to identify the calling browser also after changing pages. We also use cookies on our website

  • which enable an analysis of your surfing habits,
  • to include user-oriented advertisements as well as for market research purposes.

(3) When accessing our website, you are informed of the use of cookies and your permission is obtained to process the personal data used in this connection. This data protection declaration is also referred to in this connection.

(4) The legal basis for processing personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (f) GDPR. With the consent of the user, the legal basis for processing personal data using cookies for the purposes of analysis and advertising is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (a) GDPR.

(5) Technically necessary cookies are used to facilitate your use of the website. Some features of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For this it is necessary to also recognise your browser after you change pages. Cookies are used in particular to make the website safer and more customer-friendly, in particular to collect use-related information, such as frequency of use and number of users of the pages and page use behaviour. The user data collected by technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles. Technically unnecessary cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its contents. The analysis cookies enable us to learn how the website is used and we can thus constantly improve our services. With the advertising cookies, we can integrate or show you advertising to match your interests. This information is also used if you visit the website again with the same terminal device, to automatically recognise you and to facilitate navigation for you.

(6) Permanent cookies also remain stored when the browser session is ended and can be called again when the site is revisited. The cookies are stored on your computer and transmitted from it to our page. You therefore have full control over the use of cookies. If you do not wish data to be collected via cookies, you can use the “Settings” menu in your browser to select whether you are informed of the use of cookies or generally exclude the setting of cookies or also individually delete cookies. It is pointed out, however, that certain functions of this website may not be available if cookies are disabled. If these are session cookies, these are automatically deleted when you leave the website.

§ 5 Contact form and e-mail contact

(1) Our website contains a contact form which can be used for making contact in electronic form. For this, you must first decide which means of communication you prefer. According to this type of communication, the data entered in the input mask are sent to us and stored. These data are:

  • e-mail address
  • message
  • name
  • form of address
  • subject
  • company
  • optional as per version: address, telephone, fax

When the message is sent, the following data are also stored:

  • the IP address of the user
  • date and time of registration

For processing of data, your permission is obtained during the sending process and reference is made to this data protection declaration. Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the personal data transmitted with the e-mail are stored. If these represent information on communication channels (for example e-mail address, telephone number), you also agree to be contacted by us via this communication channel in order to respond to your enquiry.
The data are not transmitted to third parties in this connection. The data are only used for processing the conversation.

(2) With the consent of the user, the legal basis for processing of the data is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (a) GDPR. The legal basis for processing the data which are transmitted by sending an e-mail is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (f) GDPR. If contact by e-mail is aimed at concluding an agreement, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (b) GDPR.

(3) Personal data from the input mask are only used by us to facilitate communication. Naturally, we will only use the data from your e-mail enquiries for the purpose for which you provide them when contacting us. The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our IT systems. This is also in line with our legitimate interest.

(4) The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose of their collection. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form and those sent via e-mail, this is the case when the individual conversation with the user is ended. The conversation is ended when the circumstances indicate that the matter concerned has been conclusively clarified. The personal data additionally collected during the sending process are deleted after six months at the latest. If the objective of the e-mail is to conclude an agreement, the data are deleted after expiry of the statutory storage periods (according to commercial or tax law).

(5) You can withdraw your permission to process the e-mail and its contents at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued. To do this, please consult the responsible party in accordance with § 1. However, this right of withdrawal only exists if the e-mail contact does not serve to prepare or implement an agreement.

§ 6 Newsletter

(1) With your permission, you can subscribe to our free newsletter, with which we inform you of current interesting offers. The goods and services advertised are specified in the declaration of consent. For subscriptions to our newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in process. This means that after you subscribe, we send you an e-mail to the specified e-mail address asking you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your subscription within 7 days, your information is blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store each of the IP addresses you use and times of subscription and confirmation. The purpose of the process is to prove your subscription and if necessary resolve a possible misuse of your personal data. If you purchase goods or services from our website and give your e-mail address for this, this may subsequently be used by us to send a newsletter. In such a case, the newsletter serves exclusively to directly advertise our own similar goods or services.

The only mandatory disclosure for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. The disclosure of further data [form of address, name] is voluntary and is used to be able to address you personally. The data are not forwarded to third parties.

(2) To send the newsletter, we use the service provided by CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede, Germany. CleverReach is a service with which sending of the newsletter can be organised and analysed. To this end, the logged data described above (IP address, time of subscription / confirmation) and the data entered are stored on servers of CleverReach in Germany or Ireland. The data are only collected in pseudonymised form, i.e. the IDs are not linked to your other personal data. A direct link to a person is excluded. Use of CleverReach enables us to analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients. For example, it is possible to analyse how many recipients have opened the newsletter and how often which link in the newsletter has been clicked.

With the aid of so-called “conversion tracking”, it is also possible to analyse whether a previously defined action (e.g. the purchase of a product on our website) has been effected after clicking the link in the newsletter. This in turn serves to become familiar with the reading habits of the users and adapt contents accordingly. However, there is no intention to observe individual users. This is also in line with our legitimate interest. Further information on data analysis by the CleverReach newsletter is available at: https://www.cleverreach.com/de/funktionen/reporting-und-tracking/. Data processing for analysis is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests (Art. 6 Section 1 (f) GDPR). If you do not want analysis by CleverReach, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide an appropriate link for this in every newsletter. We store your data kept by us for the purpose of receiving the newsletter until you unsubscribe and thereafter they are deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of CleverReach. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the members’ area) remain unaffected in this regard. Further details are given in the privacy policy of CleverReach at: https://www.cleverreach.com/de/datenschutz/. We have concluded an agreement on processing of order data with CleverReach and fully implement the strict regulations of the German data protection authorities by using CleverReach.

(3) With the consent of the user, the legal basis for processing of the data after subscribing to the newsletter is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (a) GDPR. The legal basis for sending the newsletter based on a previous agreement is Art. 7 Section 3 UWG (“Gesetz gegen unlauteren Wettbewerb” = “Act against Unfair Competition”). Use of the technology service provider CleverReach, performance of statistical surveys and analysis as well as logging of the subscription process are carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (f) GDPR.

(4) The e-mail address of the user is collected in order to send the newsletter. Other personal data (IP address, time of subscription / confirmation) in the course of the subscription process are used to prevent misuse of the services or of the e-mail address used. Any further information provided is only used to be able to address you personally in the newsletter.

(5) The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose of their collection. Your e-mail address and your other personal data are thereafter only stored as long as you are still subscribed to the newsletter. The other personal data collected during the subscription process (IP address, time of subscription / confirmation) are generally deleted after a period of six months.

(6) You can cancel subscription to our newsletter at any time and thus withdraw your permission by clicking the box “Unsubscribe from newsletter” in our newsletter boilerplate or by sending us an e-mail to info@allmatic.de or sending a message to the contact details given on the Site Notice page. This also enables withdrawal of the permission to store the personal data collected during the subscription process (IP address, time of subscription / confirmation). When you unsubscribe from the newsletter, we simultaneously delete your data in CleverReach and the statistical analyses. Unfortunately, a separate cancellation of dispatch by CleverReach or statistical analysis is not possible.

§ 7 Registration

(1) We offer you possibilities to register on our website by submitting personal data. The data are entered in the input mask and sent to us and stored. These data are generally not forwarded to third parties if there is no legal obligation to forward them or forwarding involves criminal or legal proceedings. The following data are collected in the course of the registration process:

  • e-mail address
  • personally selected password
  • company
  • name
  • address
  • optional: form of address, position, VAT ID, telephone, fax, mobile
  • IP address
  • date and time of registration

You can manage and alter all information in the protected customer area.

(2) For registration, we use the so-called double opt-in process. This means that after you subscribe, we send you an e-mail to the specified e-mail address asking you to confirm that you wish to register. If you do not confirm your subscription within 7 days, your information is blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store each of the IP addresses you use and times of subscription and confirmation. The purpose of the process is to prove your subscription and if necessary resolve a possible misuse of your personal data.

(3) With the consent of the user, the legal basis for processing of the data is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (a) GDPR. If subscription serves to fulfil an agreement to which you are a contractual partner or to implement pre-contractual measures, the additional legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (b) GDPR.

(4) Registration is necessary for provision of certain contents and services on our website and to prevent misuse and if necessary to investigate criminal offences(further description of contents and services) Registration is necessary to fulfil the agreement or to carry out pre-contractual measures (further description of the agreement; standards as per EGBGB = Introductory Act to the German Civil Code and BGB = German Civil Code)

(5) The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose of their collection. This is the case for the data collected during the registration process as soon as you delete your access. We also store the data submitted voluntarily for the time up to deletion of the account if you do not delete these previously. This is the case during the registration process to fulfil an agreement or to implement pre-contractual measures if the data are no longer required for implementation of the agreement. It may also be necessary to store personal data of the contractual partner after conclusion of an agreement in order to fulfil contractual or legal obligations. Long-term commitments require storage of personal data during the term of the agreement. In addition, warranty periods must be observed and the data stored for tax purposes. The storage periods to be observed cannot be generally defined but must be determined in each case for the individual agreements and contractual parties.

(6) If the data are required to fulfil an agreement or to carry out pre-contractual measures, advance deletion of the data is only possible if contractual or legal obligations do not prevent deletion. Otherwise you are free to have all personal data disclosed on registration deleted from the database of the person responsible for processing by declaring your withdrawal to the person responsible by e-mail or by post in accordance with § 1. In this case, your data are immediately deleted.

§ 8 SSL encryption

Our website uses SSL encryption in cases where confidential or personal data are transferred. This encryption is used, for example, in the event of payment transactions and enquiries addressed to us via this website. To ensure that this encryption is also actually active, this must be monitored by you. The status of encryption is displayed in the browser. In the event of encryption, this changes from “http://” to “https://”. In the case of encryption, your data cannot be read by third parties. If encryption is not active, please contact us in confidence via another means.

§ 9 E-Commerce

(1) If you would like to order from our online shop, you will be required to provide your personal details to conclude an agreement so that we can process your order. Compulsory information required for processing the agreements is marked separately. All other information is voluntary. The data are entered in the input mask and sent to us and stored. The following data are collected when using the internet shop:

  • name
  • address
  • e-mail address
  • password
  • company
  • VAT ID if foreign EU country is selected
  • optional: form of address, position, telephone, fax, mobile
  • IP address
  • date and time of order

Data are only forwarded to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of processing the agreement, invoicing or for collection of the payment or if you have expressly given your permission. In this regard, we only forward the data required in the individual case. The data recipients are

  • The individual delivery / shipping company (forwarding of name and address)
  • Banks for collecting debts if you have selected direct debit as your form of payment
  • Payment service provider – depending on selection of means of payment.

You can voluntarily open a customer account via which we can store your data for further purchases in future. When you open an account under “My account”, the data provided by you are revocably stored.

(2) The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (b) GDPR. The legal basis for processing the voluntary data is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (a) GDPR.

(3) The obligatory information collected is required to fulfil the agreement with the user (for the purpose of sending the goods and confirming the content of the agreement). We therefore use the data to reply to your enquiries, to process your order, if necessary to check creditworthiness or to collect a debt as well as for technical administration of the websites. Voluntary information is given to prevent misuse and if necessary to investigate criminal offences. We can also process the data provided by you to inform you of other interesting products from our range or to send you e-mails with information.

(4) The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose of their collection. Due to commercial and tax law, we are obliged to store your address, payment and order details for a period of ten years after execution of the agreement. If a long-term commitment exists between us and the user, we store the data for the complete term of the agreement and for a period of ten years thereafter (see above). With regard to the data voluntarily given, we will carry out another necessity test of the data five years after the execution of the agreement has expired if no further agreement is concluded with the user within this period.

(5) If the data are required to fulfil an agreement or to carry out pre-contractual measures, advance deletion of the data is only possible if contractual or legal obligations do not prevent deletion. Otherwise you are free at any time to have all personal data submitted on registration deleted from the database by the responsible party in accordance with § 1. With regard to the voluntary data, you can declare your withdrawal to the responsible party at any time in accordance with § 1. In this case, the voluntary data are immediately deleted.

§ 11 Web analysis by Google Analytics

(1) We use the service of Google Inc. on our website (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. The software installs a cookie on your computer (for cookies, see § 4). If individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data are stored: a) Two bytes of the IP address of the calling system of the user b) The accessed website c) Entry pages, exit pages d) The length of stay on the website and the opt-out rate e) The frequency of visits to the website f) The country and region of origin, language, browser, operating system, screen resolution, use of Flash or Java g) Search engines and search terms used. The information generated by the cookie on the use of this website by the user is generally transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and stored there. This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. The software is set such that the IP addresses are not fully stored but only in abbreviated form. In this way, assignment of the abbreviated IP address to the calling computer is no longer possible. The full IP address is only transmitted to the server of Google in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. However, the IP address sent from your browser to Google Analytics is not combined with other data of Google.

(2) The legal basis for processing the personal data is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (f) GDPR. For exceptional cases in which personal data are transmitted to the USA, Google has subscribed to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

(3) Google will use this information in order to analyse your use of the website and to compile reports on the website activities. By analysing the data obtained, we are able to compile information on the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to continually improve our website and its user-friendliness. For these purposes, our legitimate interest also lies in data processing. Anonymisation of the IP address sufficiently takes into account the interest of the users in protection of their data.

(4) The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required for our logging purposes. In our case this is after 14 months.

(5) The cookies used are stored on your computer and transmitted from it to our page. If you do not consent to the collection and logging of the usage data, you can prevent this via the appropriate setting of your browser software by disabling or limiting the use of cookies. Cookies already stored can be deleted at any time. However, in this case it may be that you cannot use all functions of this website to the full extent. In addition, you can prevent logging of the data generated by the cookie and data relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google as well as processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available at the following link and installing it. The current link is: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

§ 12 Google AdWords Conversion Tracking

(1) On our website we use the Google Conversion Tracking service to analyse Google AdWords. This is an analysis service of Google Inc. (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. The software installs a cookie on your computer (for cookies, see § 4), so-called “Conversion Cookie”. If individual pages of our website are accessed, information is stored by Google.
The information generated by the cookie on the use of this website by users is generally transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and stored there. If you visit certain pages of ours and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can detect that the advertisement has been clicked on and that you were thus redirected to our site.

(2) However, we do not receive any personal data ourselves.

(3) The information obtained with the aid of the conversion cookie is used to produce statistics for us. We can thus receive information on the number of users who have clicked on our advertisement and were forwarded to a page with a conversion tracking tag. By analysing the data obtained, we are able to compile information on the use of our advertisements. For these purposes, our legitimate interest also lies in data processing.

(4) The legal basis for processing the personal data is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (f) GDPR. For exceptional cases in which personal data are transmitted to the USA, Google has subscribed to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

(5) The cookie expires after 30 days. As we do not collect any data ourselves, we do not store any data either. If Google Inc. collects data, we have no influence on the deletion periods.

(6) The cookies used are stored on your computer and transmitted from it to our page. If you do not consent to the collection and logging of the usage data, you can prevent this via the appropriate setting of your browser software by disabling or limiting the use of cookies. Cookies already stored can be deleted at any time. However, in this case it may be that you cannot use all functions of this website to the full extent.

(7) The third-party provider is Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. Further information is available in the user terms at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, in the data protection overview at http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html and in the data protection declaration at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

§ 13 Lead Inspector

(1) For statistical analysis of visitor access, data are collected, processed and stored with technologies of Lead Inspector GmbH. The provider is Lead Inspector GmbH, Theodor-Heuss-Anlage 12, 68165 Mannheim, Germany, www.leadinspector.de.

(2) This is carried out for marketing purposes and to identify visitors to the website. Based on these data, Lead Inspector GmbH technology determines the address but only in cases in which it can ensure that the visitor is a company and not an individual. For this purpose, so-called cookies may be used (cf. § 4). The company details collected bye Lead Inspector GmbH may also include personal data. Lead Inspector GmbH may use information left on visiting the web pages in order to produce anonymised usage profiles. If IP addresses are collected, these are immediately anonymised after collection by deleting the last number block. This is also in our legitimate interest, but the data of users are protected by anonymisation.

(3) Data collection is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Section 1 sentence (f) GDPR.

(4) As the data are collected in anonymous form, no personal data are stored.

(5) Data collection and storage by Lead Inspector GmbH for this website can be withdrawn at any time with future effect at www.leadinspector.de/widerspruch.

§ 14 Google DoubleClick

(1) This website uses Google DoubleClick. This is a service to integrate advertisements of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. DoubleClick transfers data to the DoubleClick server with each impression and also with clicks or other activities. Each of these data transmissions triggers a cookie request to your browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick installs a cookie (for cookies, see § 4). Your browser is then assigned a pseudonymous identification number (ID) to check which advertisements were shown in your browser and which advertisements were viewed. The cookies enable Google and its partner websites, i.e. also us, to publish advertisements based on previous visits to our or other websites. With each access to one of our individual pages on which a DoubleClick component has been integrated, the internet browser is automatically prompted to send data for the purpose of online advertising and settling of commissions to Google.

(2) It is also possible for DoubleClick to record conversions with the cookie ID. Conversions are recorded, for example, if you have previously been shown a DoubleClick advertisement and as a consequence you conclude a purchase on the website of the advertiser with the same internet browser.

(3) The cookies do not collect personal data. However, a DoubleClick cookie may contain additional campaign IDs. A campaign ID serves to identify the campaigns which you have already contacted.

(4) We have no influence over the data collected, nor do we know the full extent of the data collection and duration of storage. Your data are transmitted to the USA and analysed there. If you are logged in with your Google account, your data may be assigned to this.

(5) The purpose of the cookie is to optimise and display advertisements which may be of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to finance it. In this way, reports on advertising campaigns can also be produced or improved as well as to prevent multiple displays of the same advertising.

(6) The legal basis for processing your data is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (f) GDPR. For exceptional cases in which personal data are transmitted to the USA, Google has subscribed to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

(7) You can prevent the installation of cookies from Google DoubleClick in various ways: a) via a corresponding setting in your browser software. In particular, blocking of third-party cookies means that you do not receive advertisements from third party providers; in this case, however, you may not be able to use all functions of our web pages; b) by permanent disabling in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We point out that, in this case, you may not be able to use all functions of this site.

(8) Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing as well as further information on your rights and setting options to protect your privacy in this respect is available from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountainview, California 94043, USA; for further information on the data protection conditions for advertising, see http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

§ 15 Google AdWords Conversion with Remarketing

(1) This website uses Google AdWords. This is a service to integrate advertisements of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

(2) Google AdWords enables an advertiser to define key words with which an advertisement in the search engine results of Google is only displayed if a search result relevant to the key word is accessed. In the Google advertising network, the advertisements are distributed via an automatic algorithm and in accordance with the previously defined key words on websites relevant to the subject.

(3) Google AdWords is aimed at promotion of our website by displaying advertising on third-party sites which is relevant to interests, in the results of the Google search engine and through third-party advertisements on our site. We thus pursue the interest of displaying advertising to you which is relevant to your interest to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs. These advertising materials are provided by Google via so-called “Ad Servers”. For this, we use ad server cookies via which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the insertion of advertisements or clicks by users can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google AdWords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days. 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 (mark that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.

(4) These cookies enable Google to recognise your internet browser (see also § 4). If a user visits certain pages of an AdWords customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the customer can recognise that the user has clicked on the advertisement and has been redirected to this page. Each AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of AdWords customers. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations we can recognise which of the used advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.
We do not collect and process any personal data in the specified advertising measures.

(5) Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the server of Google. We have no influence over the data collected, nor do we know the full extent of the data collection and duration of storage. Your data are transmitted to the USA and analysed there. By the integration of AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you accessed the appropriate part of our website or clicked on one of our advertisements. In addition, both Google and we receive information via the conversion cookie whether you generated turnover if you accessed our website via an AdWords advertisement.

(6) Remarketing: In addition to AdWords Conversion, we use the Google Remarketing application. This is a function which enables us to display advertising to those users who have previously visited our website. This should display advertisements which are relevant to your interests. This is carried out via cookies stored in your browser via which your usage behaviour is recorded and evaluated by Google when various websites are visited. With every access to a website on which Google Remarketing has been integrated, the browser of the party concerned automatically identifies itself to Google. Google can thus identify your previous visit to our website. With this technical process, Google receives information on personal data, i.e. on your IP address or surfing behaviour. According to Google, the data collected in the context of remarketing is not linked to your personal data which may be stored by Google. However, these data are also transmitted to Google in the USA and stored there.

(7) The legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6 Section 1 sentence 1 (f) GDPR. For exceptional cases in which personal data are transmitted to the USA, Google has subscribed to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

(8) You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways:
a) via a corresponding setting in your browser software. In particular, blocking of third-party cookies means that you do not receive advertisements from third party providers; in this case, however, you may not be able to use all functions of our web pages.
b) by disabling the cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser so that cookies are blocked from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, whereby this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies;
c) by disabling the interest-based advertisements which are part of the self-regulation campaign “About Ads”, via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies;
d) by permanent disabling in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We point out that, in this case, you may not be able to use all functions of this site.

(9) Further information on data protection at Google is available here: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html. Alternatively, you can visit the website of Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at http://www.networkadvertising.org.

(3) No right to deletion exists if processing is necessary:

a) to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;
