(1) Google Analytics
For the purpose of demand-oriented design and continual optimisation of our sites we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of the Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter referred to as “Google“). In this context, pseudonymous usage profiles are created and cookies used (see point 4). The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website, such as • browser type/version, • operating system used, • referrer URL (previously visited page), • host name of accessing computer (IP address), • time of server inquiry, is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on advertising activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and of the Internet for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these Internet pages. In no event, your IP address is amalgamated with other data of Google. The IP addresses are anonymised so that an assignment of date is not possible (IP masking). Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found at Google Analytics Help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de). We have agreed the standard data protection clauses with the Google LLC.
(2) Google Maps
This site uses the map service Google Maps via an API. Provider of the map service is Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The integration of this plugin by us is done by means of the so-called two-click method to protect visitors to our website in the best possible way. This means that your personal data (particularly your IP address) is not already transmitted to Google when calling up the website. Rather, you must activate the integrated map only by a click. With this click, you give consent that the map with our company location is loaded and data is thus transmitted to Google. As a rule, your data is transferred non-anonymous to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of Google: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/. We have agreed the standard data protection clauses with the Google LLC.
(3) Facebook Pixel
For conversion measurement, our website uses visitor action pixels and cookies of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). That way, the behaviour of website users can be tracked after they were transferred to our website by clicking on a Facebook advertisement. As a result, the effectiveness of the Facebook advertisements can be evaluated for statistical and market investigation purposes and optimised for future advertising measures. The collected data is anonymous to us as the operator of this website, so it does not provide any conclusions to the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profiles is possible and Facebook can use the data for own advertising purposes according to the Facebook data usage policy. Thereby, Facebook can make it possible to place advertisements on Facebook sites as well as outside these networks. The usage of this data cannot be influenced by us as site operator. In the data protection notices of Facebook, you can find further notes about the protection of your privacy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
On our website, we use Social Plugins from YouTube LLC (901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA) a subsidiary of Google LLC. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), to raise awareness of our company. The plugins are indicated by a YouTube logo, for example in the form of a “YouTube camera” or a “Play” button. The integration of these plugins by us is done by means of the so-called two-click method to protect visitors to our website in the best possible way. This means that your personal data (particularly your IP address) is not already transmitted to YouTube when calling up the website. Instead, you must activate the integrated “buttons” only by a click. With this click, you give consent that a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Through this integrated plugin, YouTube receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a YouTube profile or are not currently logged in to YouTube. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to a YouTube server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged into YouTube, YouTube can immediately link the visit on our website to your YouTube account. When you interact with the plugins, for example operate the “YouTube” button, this information is also transmitted directly to a YouTube server and stored there. Furthermore, the information is published on your YouTube account and shown to your contacts there. If you do not want YouTube to immediately link the data collected about our web appearance to your YouTube account, you must log out from YouTube before activating the plugins with YouTube. You can find further information on this in data protection declaration (https://www.youtube.de/t/privacy) of YouTube.

In this context, pseudonymous usage profiles are created and cookies used (see point 4). The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

(6) LinkedIn Insights Tag

c) Google Tag Manager
Our website uses “Google Tag Manager”, a service of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Irland (in the following referred to as "Google"). Google Tag Manager makes it possible for us a marketer to be able to administrate website tags by means of a user interface. The tool of Google Tag Manager which implements the tags is a domain without cookies and does not collect any personal data itself.
