Advertisers use this information to align their campaigns with these interests, which is beneficial for users and advertisers alike. For Google, advertisements are personalized when recorded or known data determine or influence the selection of advertisements. This includes previous searches, activities, website visits, the use of apps, demographic and location information.

For more information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options, see Google's data protection declaration ( https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads ) as well as in the settings for the display of advertisements by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated ).
Google AdWords and conversion measurement
We use the services of the Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, ("Google"). Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active). We use the online marketing process Google "AdWords" to place advertisements in the Google advertising network (e.g., in search results, in videos, on websites, etc.) so that they can be displayed to users who have a presumed interest in the advertisements. This allows us to display advertisements for and within our online offer in a more targeted manner in order to only present users with advertisements that potentially correspond to their interests. If, for example, a user is shown advertisements for products that he was interested in on other online offers, this is referred to as "remarketing". For these purposes, when our and other websites on which the Google advertising network is active, a code is immediately executed by Google and so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as " Web Beacons ”) integrated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, i.e. a small file, is saved on the user's device (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). This file records which websites the user has visited, which content he is interested in and which offers the user has clicked, as well as technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information on the use of the online offer. We also receive an individual "conversion cookie". The information obtained with the help of the cookie is used by Google to generate conversion statistics for us. However, we only find out the anonymous total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified. User data is processed pseudonymously within the Google advertising network. This means that Google does not store and process e.g. the name or email address of the user, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. This means that from Google's point of view, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie owner, regardless of who this cookie owner is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected about the users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the USA. For more information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options, see Google's data protection declaration ( https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads ) as well as in the settings for the display of advertisements by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated ).

The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user's device, which integrates it into the online offer. In doing so, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to our level of knowledge. By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the relevant information is transmitted directly from your device to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out his IP address and save it. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is saved in Germany. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the related rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users can be found in Facebook's data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ . If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him through this online offer and link it to his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook before using our online offer and delete his cookies.
