  1. collection of personal data for informational use

Each time you access our website, we collect the following information about your computer: the IP address of your computer, the request from your browser and the time of this request. In addition, the status and the amount of data transferred as part of this request are recorded. We also collect product and version information about the browser used and the operating system of your computer. We also record the website from which our website was accessed. The IP address of your computer is only stored for the duration of your use of the website and is then immediately deleted or anonymized by shortening it. We use this data for the operation of our website, in particular to detect and eliminate errors on the website, to determine the utilization of the website and to make adjustments or improvements. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

  1. cookies & local storage
  2. 1.

We may also collect information about your use of our website through the use of so-called browser cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your data carrier and that store certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. A cookie usually contains the name of the domain from which the cookie data was sent, as well as information about the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier. Cookies enable our systems to recognize the user’s device and make any default settings immediately available. As soon as a user accesses the platform, a cookie is transferred to the hard disk of the user’s computer. Cookies help us to improve our website and offer you a better, more personalized service. They enable us to recognize your computer when you return to our website and thereby:

  • to store information about your preferred activities on the website and thus tailor our website to your individual interests. This includes, for example, advertising that corresponds to your personal interests.
  • speed up the processing of your requests.
  1. 2.

The cookies we use only store the data explained above about your use of the website. This is not done by assigning it to you personally, but by assigning an identification number to the cookie (“cookie ID”). The cookie ID is not merged with your name, IP address or similar data that would allow the cookie to be assigned to you.

 

  1. 3.

A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. In terms of their function, a distinction is made between cookies:

  • Technical cookies: These are strictly necessary to move around the website, use basic functions and ensure the security of the website; they do not collect information about you for marketing purposes or store which websites you have visited;
  • Performance cookies, statistical cookies: These collect information about how you use our website, which pages you visit and, for example, whether errors occur when using the website; they do not collect any information that could identify you – all information collected is anonymous and is only used to improve our website and to find out what interests our users;
  • Advertising cookies, targeting cookies: These are used to offer the website user needs-based advertising on the website or offers from third parties and to measure the effectiveness of these offers; advertising and targeting and statistics cookies are stored for a maximum of 13 months;
  • Sharing cookies: These are used to improve the interactivity of our website with other services (e.g. social networks); sharing cookies are stored for a maximum of 13 months.
  1. 4.

Any use of cookies that is not absolutely technically necessary constitutes data processing that is only permitted with your express and active consent in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG and only takes place in compliance with this legal provision. This applies in particular to the use of advertising, targeting or sharing cookies. In addition, we only pass on your personal data processed by cookies to third parties if you have given your express consent in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG.

 

  1. 5.

Below you will find an overview of the cookies used on our website and your current consent status.

 

  1. 6.

You can determine yourself whether cookies can be set and retrieved using the settings in your browser. For example, you can completely deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser, restrict it to certain websites or configure your browser so that it automatically notifies you as soon as a cookie is to be set and asks you for feedback. You can block or delete individual cookies. For technical reasons, however, this may result in some functions of our website being impaired and no longer functioning fully.

 

  1. 7.

If cookies are only used on our website with your consent, you can also make the settings mentioned under 4. 6. in our Cookie Consent Tool by clicking on the Cookiebot icon at the bottom left of the browser window.

 

  1. data security

All information that you transmit to us is stored on servers within the European Union. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure, which is why we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to our website via the Internet. However, we take technical and organizational measures to protect our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, modification or dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons. In particular, your personal data is transmitted to us in encrypted form. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) or TLS (Transport Layer Security) coding system.

 

  1. use of CookieBot
  2. 1.

We have integrated the consent management tool “Cookiebot” from Usercentrics A/S, Havnegade 39, 1058 Copenhagen, Denmark (Usercentrics) on our website in order to obtain consent for data processing or the use of cookies or comparable functions. With the help of “Cookiebot”, you have the option of giving or refusing your consent for certain functionalities of our website, e.g. for the purpose of integrating external elements, integrating streaming content, statistical analysis, reach measurement and personalized advertising. You can use “Cookiebot” to give or refuse your consent for all functions or give your consent for individual purposes or individual functions. You can also change the settings you have made at a later date using the icon at the bottom left of the website you are visiting.

 

  1. 2.

The purpose of integrating “Cookiebot” is to allow the users of our website to decide on the aforementioned matters and to offer the possibility of changing settings already made during the further use of our website. In the course of using “Cookiebot”, personal data and information about the end devices used (IP address, language, browser, etc.) are processed and sent to CookieYes Limited. The information about the settings you have made is also stored on your device.

 

  1. 3.

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c), Art. 6 para. 3 sentence 1 lit. a), Art. 25, Art. 5 para. 2 GDPR and alternatively Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. We store the cookie required to store your consent on the basis of § 25 para. 2 no. 2 TTDSG. “Cookiebot” helps us to process the data of our users in order to fulfill our legal obligations (e.g. obtaining informed consent and the obligation to provide proof thereof). Our legitimate interests in processing that goes beyond the obtaining and verifiability of the consent obtained lie in the evaluation of consent rates and other functionalities.

 

  1. 4.

“Cookiebot” stores your data for as long as your user settings are active. After one year after the user settings have been made, you will be asked for your consent again. The user settings made will then be stored again for this period, unless you delete the information about your user settings in the terminal device capacities provided for this purpose yourself beforehand. We have concluded the standard data protection clauses (SCC) with “Cookiebot”. In addition, an adequacy decision of the EU Commission exists for the United Kingdom.

 

  1. 5.

You can object to the processing if the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR. You have the right to object on grounds relating to your particular situation. To object, please send an email to privacy@cookiebot.com.

 

 

  1. no disclosure of your personal data

We do not pass on your personal data to third parties unless you have consented to the data being passed on or we are entitled or obliged to pass on data on the basis of statutory provisions and/or official or court orders. In particular, this may involve providing information for the purposes of criminal prosecution, averting danger or enforcing intellectual property rights.

  1. social media profiles
  2. 1.

We have various presences on social media platforms. We operate these sites with the following providers:

We would like to point out that you use our presence on social media platforms and their functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). When you visit our websites, the providers of the social media platforms collect your IP address and other information in the form of cookies on your end device. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the accounts, with statistical information about the interaction with us. The legal basis in each case is your consent: for the setting of cookies this is § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, for the subsequent data processing Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

 

 

  1. 3.

The data collected about you in this context is processed by the platforms and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union, in particular the USA. According to their own statements, all of the aforementioned providers maintain an adequate level of data protection that corresponds to that of the former EU-US Privacy Shield and we have concluded the standard data protection clauses with the companies (with the exception of Xing, as this provider is based within the EU). We do not know how the social media platforms use the data from your visit to our account and interaction with our posts for their own purposes, how long this data is stored and whether data is passed on to third parties. Data processing may differ depending on whether you are registered and logged in to the social network or whether you visit the site as a non-registered and/or non-logged-in user. When you access a post or the account, the IP address assigned to your end device is transmitted to the provider of the social media platform. If you are currently logged in as a user, a cookie on your device can be used to track how you have moved around the network. Buttons integrated into websites enable the platforms to record your visits to these websites and assign them to your respective profile. This data can be used to tailor content or advertising to you. If you want to avoid this, you should log out or deactivate the “stay logged in” function, delete the cookies on your device and restart your browser.

The legal basis for the processing of your data on the social media platform is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

 

  1. 5.

To exercise your rights as a data subject, you can contact us or the provider of the social media platform. If one party is not responsible for responding or must receive the information from the other party, we or the provider will then forward your request to the respective partner. Please contact the operator of the social media platform directly for questions about profiling and the processing of your data when using the website. If you have any questions about the processing of your interaction with us on our site, please write to the contact details provided by us above.

 

  1. 6.

Within the company, only those persons have access to your data who need it for the proper course of our application procedure.

 

  1. 7.

If you use our application tool, we use a specialized software provider for the application process. This provider acts as a service provider for us and may also obtain knowledge of your personal data in connection with the maintenance and servicing of the systems.

You can find more details on this under section 12.10

 

  1. third-party tools
  2. 1 Use of Google Tag Manager
  3. 1. 1. This website uses Google Tag Manager, a cookie-free domain that does not collect any personal data
  4. 1. 2. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If you have made a deactivation at domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager.
  5. 1. 3. The use of Google Tag Manager is in the interest of simple administration and development of our website Google Tag Manager is used to efficiently control content on various pages, reduce the potential for errors, prevent outdated processes and thus also ensure secure websites for the user. The legal basis for its use is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
  6. 2 Use of Google Analytics

12 .2. 1.   This website uses Google Analytics, a web tracking service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”) The purpose of our use of the tool is to enable us to analyze your user interactions on websites and in apps and to use the statistics and reports obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.

  1. 2. 2 We record the interactions between you as a user of the website and our website primarily with the help of cookies, device/browser data, IP addresses and website or app activities. In Google Analytics, your IP addresses are also recorded to ensure the security of the service and to provide us as the website operator with information about the country, region or location from which the respective user originates (so-called “IP location determination”). For your protection, however, we naturally use the anonymization function (“IP masking”), i.e. Google truncates the IP addresses by the last octet within the EU/EEA.
  2. 2. 3 Google acts as a processor and we have concluded a corresponding contract with Google. The information generated by the cookie and the (usually shortened) IP addresses about your use of this website are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and processed there. For these cases, Google has, according to its own information, imposed a standard that corresponds to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has promised to comply with applicable data protection laws when transferring data internationally. We have also agreed so-called standard contractual clauses with Google, the purpose of which is to maintain an appropriate level of data protection in the third country.
  3. 2. 4 The legal basis for the collection and further processing of the information (which takes place for a maximum of 14 months) is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR). Any necessary cookies will also only be set with your consent in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG. You can withdraw your consent at any time without this affecting the permissibility of processing up to the time of withdrawal. In apps, you can reset the advertising ID in the Android or iOS settings. The easiest way to revoke your consent is via our Consent Manager or by installing the Google browser add-on, which can be accessed via the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en/.

Google provides information on data processing when using Google Analytics at the following link:support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en/. General information on data processing, which according to Google should also apply to Google Analytics, can be found in Google’s privacy policy at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

 

  1. 3 Use of Google Ads
  2. 3. 1. We use Google Ads to draw attention to our offers with the help of advertisements If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your device. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR, i.e. the integration only takes place with your consent. If a cookie is required for this downstream data processing, it will be set in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by clicking on the cookiebot icon at the bottom left of the browser window and making the appropriate settings.
  3. 3. 2. The advertising material is delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers” For this purpose, we and other websites use so-called ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. We can obtain information about the success of our advertising campaigns via the Google Ads cookies stored on our website. These cookies are not intended to identify you personally. The unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that a user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.
  4. 3. 3. The cookies set by Google enable Google to recognize your internet browser If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer so that the cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of other Ads customers. By integrating Google Ads, Google receives the information that you have called up 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 your IP address and store it.

 

  1. 3. 4. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server We ourselves do not independently collect personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures, but only provide Google with the opportunity to collect the data. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google, which provide information on which advertisements were clicked on how often and at what prices. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
  2. 3. 5. you may withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. The easiest way to revoke your consent is via our Consent Manager or via the following functions: a) by setting your browser software accordingly, in particular by suppressing third-party cookies so that you do not receive any ads from third-party providers; b) by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, www.google.de/settings/ads, whereby this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the “About Ads” self-regulation campaign via the link www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently deactivating them in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers under the link www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

  4. 4 Google Conversion Tracking

12 .4. 1.   We use Google Ads with the additional application “Google Conversion Tracking” This is a procedure with which we can check the success of our advertising campaigns. For this purpose, the advertisements are provided with a technical provision, e.g. an ID, with which we can determine how a user interacts after clicking on the advertisements and whether one of our services is actually used. This provides us with statistical information about the total number of readers of our advertisements, which advertisements are particularly popular and, if applicable, further information about the consequences of the advertisement.

  1. 4. 2. the legal basis for the processing of your data is also in this respect Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR, i.e. the integration only takes place with your consent. You can prevent or stop using the conversion tracking function in the same way as described above for Google Ads. If a cookie is required for this downstream data processing, it will be set in accordance with Section 25 (1) of the GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by clicking on the cookiebot icon at the bottom left of the browser window and making the appropriate settings.

If you do not wish your data to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

We may also collect information about your use of our website through the use of so-called browser cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your data carrier and that store certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. A cookie usually contains the name of the domain from which the cookie data was sent, as well as information about the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier. Cookies enable our systems to recognize the user’s device and make any default settings immediately available. As soon as a user accesses the platform, a cookie is transferred to the hard disk of the user’s computer. Cookies help us to improve our website and offer you a better, more personalized service. They enable us to recognize your computer when you return to our website and thereby:

  • speed up the processing of your requests.
  1. 2.

The cookies we use only store the data explained above about your use of the website. This is not done by assigning it to you personally, but by assigning an identification number to the cookie (“cookie ID”). The cookie ID is not merged with your name, IP address or similar data that would allow the cookie to be assigned to you.

 

  1. 3.

A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. In terms of their function, a distinction is made between cookies:

  • Technical cookies: These are strictly necessary to move around the website, use basic functions and ensure the security of the website; they do not collect information about you for marketing purposes or store which websites you have visited;
  • Performance cookies, statistical cookies: These collect information about how you use our website, which pages you visit and, for example, whether errors occur when using the website; they do not collect any information that could identify you – all information collected is anonymous and is only used to improve our website and to find out what interests our users;

  • Sharing cookies: These are used to improve the interactivity of our website with other services (e.g. social networks); sharing cookies are stored for a maximum of 13 months.
  1. 4.

Any use of cookies that is not absolutely technically necessary constitutes data processing that is only permitted with your express and active consent in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG and only takes place in compliance with this legal provision. This applies in particular to the use of advertising, targeting or sharing cookies. In addition, we only pass on your personal data processed by cookies to third parties if you have given your express consent in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG.

  1. data security

All information that you transmit to us is stored on servers within the European Union. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure, which is why we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to our website via the Internet. However, we take technical and organizational measures to protect our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, modification or dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons. In particular, your personal data is transmitted to us in encrypted form. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) or TLS (Transport Layer Security) coding system.

 

  1. use of CookieBot

We have integrated the consent management tool “Cookiebot” from Usercentrics A/S, Havnegade 39, 1058 Copenhagen, Denmark (Usercentrics) on our website in order to obtain consent for data processing or the use of cookies or comparable functions. With the help of “Cookiebot”, you have the option of giving or refusing your consent for certain functionalities of our website, e.g. for the purpose of integrating external elements, integrating streaming content, statistical analysis, reach measurement and personalized advertising. You can use “Cookiebot” to give or refuse your consent for all functions or give your consent for individual purposes or individual functions. You can also change the settings you have made at a later date using the icon at the bottom left of the website you are visiting.

 

  1. 2.

The purpose of integrating “Cookiebot” is to allow the users of our website to decide on the aforementioned matters and to offer the possibility of changing settings already made during the further use of our website. In the course of using “Cookiebot”, personal data and information about the end devices used (IP address, language, browser, etc.) are processed and sent to CookieYes Limited. The information about the settings you have made is also stored on your device.

We store the cookie required to store your consent on the basis of § 25 para. 2 no. 2 TTDSG. “Cookiebot” helps us to process the data of our users in order to fulfill our legal obligations (e.g. obtaining informed consent and the obligation to provide proof thereof). Our legitimate interests in processing that goes beyond the obtaining and verifiability of the consent obtained lie in the evaluation of consent rates and other functionalities.

 

  1. 4.

“Cookiebot” stores your data for as long as your user settings are active. After one year after the user settings have been made, you will be asked for your consent again. The user settings made will then be stored again for this period, unless you delete the information about your user settings in the terminal device capacities provided for this purpose yourself beforehand. We have concluded the standard data protection clauses (SCC) with “Cookiebot”. In addition, an adequacy decision of the EU Commission exists for the United Kingdom.

 

  1. 5.

You can object to the processing if the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR. You have the right to object on grounds relating to your particular situation. To object, please send an email to privacy@cookiebot.com.

  6. 2 Use of Google Analytics

12 .2. 1.   This website uses Google Analytics, a web tracking service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”) The purpose of our use of the tool is to enable us to analyze your user interactions on websites and in apps and to use the statistics and reports obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.

  1. 2. 2 We record the interactions between you as a user of the website and our website primarily with the help of cookies, device/browser data, IP addresses and website or app activities. In Google Analytics, your IP addresses are also recorded to ensure the security of the service and to provide us as the website operator with information about the country, region or location from which the respective user originates (so-called “IP location determination”). For your protection, however, we naturally use the anonymization function (“IP masking”), i.e. Google truncates the IP addresses by the last octet within the EU/EEA.
  2. 2. 3 Google acts as a processor and we have concluded a corresponding contract with Google. The information generated by the cookie and the (usually shortened) IP addresses about your use of this website are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and processed there. For these cases, Google has, according to its own information, imposed a standard that corresponds to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has promised to comply with applicable data protection laws when transferring data internationally. We have also agreed so-called standard contractual clauses with Google, the purpose of which is to maintain an appropriate level of data protection in the third country.
  3. 2. 4 The legal basis for the collection and further processing of the information (which takes place for a maximum of 14 months) is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR). Any necessary cookies will also only be set with your consent in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG. You can withdraw your consent at any time without this affecting the permissibility of processing up to the time of withdrawal. In apps, you can reset the advertising ID in the Android or iOS settings.

  1. 3 Use of Google Ads
  2. 3. 1. We use Google Ads to draw attention to our offers with the help of advertisements If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your device. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR, i.e. the integration only takes place with your consent.

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by clicking on the cookiebot icon at the bottom left of the browser window and making the appropriate settings.
  3. 3. 2. The advertising material is delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers” For this purpose, we and other websites use so-called ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. We can obtain information about the success of our advertising campaigns via the Google Ads cookies stored on our website. These cookies are not intended to identify you personally. The unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that a user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.
  4. 3. 3. The cookies set by Google enable Google to recognize your internet browser If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer so that the cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of other Ads customers. By integrating Google Ads, Google receives the information that you have called up 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 your IP address and store it.

 

  1. 3. 4. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server We ourselves do not independently collect personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures, but only provide Google with the opportunity to collect the data. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google, which provide information on which advertisements were clicked on how often and at what prices. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
  2. 3. 5. you may withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. The easiest way to revoke your consent is via our Consent Manager or via the following functions: a) by setting your browser software accordingly, in particular by suppressing third-party cookies so that you do not receive any ads from third-party providers; b) by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, www.google.de/settings/ads, whereby this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the “About Ads” self-regulation campaign via the link www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently deactivating them in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers under the link www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

  4. 4 Google Conversion Tracking

12 .4. 1.   We use Google Ads with the additional application “Google Conversion Tracking” This is a procedure with which we can check the success of our advertising campaigns. For this purpose, the advertisements are provided with a technical provision, e.g. an ID, with which we can determine how a user interacts after clicking on the advertisements and whether one of our services is actually used. This provides us with statistical information about the total number of readers of our advertisements, which advertisements are particularly popular and, if applicable, further information about the consequences of the advertisement.

If you do not wish your data to be associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
  4. 6. 3. the information collected is stored on Google servers, including in the USA.
