We collect and process the following data when you use our Online Services (so called log files): browser type and browser version, used operating system, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer, time of the server request, IP address.
These log files are generated automatically by our servers when you use our Online Services and are necessary so that we can provide you with the desired service. We therefore process log files solely to be able to operate our Online Services, to identify you as a user authorized to access, to distribute web server requests in our server pool as well as for security reasons (e.g. for clarification of abusive and fraudulent activities). Thus, this data processing activity is necessary to ensure our legitimate interests in operating user friendly and secure Online Services.
Cookies are files that are transmitted from our web server to your web browser and are stored on your device for later retrieval. Through such cookies, our Online Services can store important data to provide you with our services and to make the use of our Online Services more comfortable for you.
We use the following types of cookies within our Online Services:
"Necessary Cookies"and "Functionality Cookies" are necessary to be able to provide you with our Online Services, to operate our services and serve for the proper functionality and security of our Online Services. These cookies are therefore necessary to pursue our legitimate interests in the provision of a user friendly and secure Online Service.
"Tracking Cookies", "Marketing Cookies" and "Web-Analysis Cookies" record your user behaviour and your interactions with our Online Services. Through these cookies, we can adapt our Online Services specifically to you as well as place advertisements suitable for you. We place such cookies only on the basis of your consent that you can withdraw at any time. Further details about all those cookies requiring your prior consent are outlined below.
We use the following Tracking, Marketing and Web-Analysis Cookies provided that you render your consent:
Provided that you have given your consent to cookies, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google") within our Online Services. The information generated through the Google Analytics cookie about the use of our Online Services are usually transmitted to the servers of Google in the United States of America and stored there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the usage of our Online Services by the users, to assemble reports about the activities within our Online Services and to deliver to us further services connected to the use of our Online Services. In doing so, pseudonymised user profiles of users can be generated from the processed data. Google will also potentially transmit the data to third parties if legally required or third parties process the data on behalf of Google. We use Google Analytics only with activated IP-anonymisation. This means that your IP address is shortened, in order to exclude a direct link to a specific device.

Google Ads (former Google Adwords)
We also use the advertising tool "Google Ads" to promote our website. As part of this, we use the "Conversion Tracking" analytics service provided by Google. If you have reached our website via a Google Ad, a cookie will be stored on your device. These socalled "conversion cookies" lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for your personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired yet, we and Google may recognize that you, as a user, clicked on one of our Google ads and were redirected to our site.
The information obtained through the "Conversion Cookies" is used by Google to create visitor statistics for our website. These statistics tell us the total number of users who clicked on our ad and also which pages of our website were subsequently accessed by the respective user. However, we do not receive any information that personally identifies users.
Facebook Pixel and Facebook Custom Audience
Our website uses the remarketing feature "Facebook-Pixel" from Facebook Inc. ("Facebook"). This function serves to present to visitors of this website, as part of their visit to the social network Facebook, interest-based advertisements ("Facebook Ads"). For this purpose, Facebook pixel was implemented on our website. Via Facebook pixels, a direct connection to the Facebook servers is made when visiting the website. It is transmitted to the Facebook server that you have visited this website and Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. Thus, we are together with Facebook joint controllers according to Art 26 GDPR.
We also use Facebook Custom Audience. Thereby, we upload our own contact lists that are compared with Facebook users. By this, we can create "Custom Audience" lists. We can then direct advertisements in the Facebook network (Facebook, Instagram) to these users (so-called "targeting"). We can also create such custom audience lists via the use of our website (via the Facebook pixel), the use of our apps or via certain interactions with our content (on Facebook or Instagram).
