5. CREATION OF PSEUDONYMIZED USER PROFILES FOR WEB ANALYSIS
a) Tracking Tools
The tracking measures listed below and deployed by us are implemented on the basis of article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, letter f of DSGVO [GDPR]. With the tracking measures used we want to ensure a needs-oriented design and the progressive optimization of our website. We also employ tracking measures to statistically record the use made of our website and to evaluate it, for purposes of optimizing of our offer for you. These interests are to be seen as legitimate in the sense of the above-mentioned regulation.
Explanations of the respective purposes of the data processing, as well as data categories, can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.
b) Google Analytics
For purposes of a needs-oriented design and continuous optimization of our pages we use Google Analytics, a web-analysis service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter referred to as “Google”). In this connection, pseudonymized user profiles are created and cookies (see under point 4) are used. The information created by the cookie about your use of this website, such as
• browser type/version,
• operating system used,
• referrer URL (the site previously visited),
• host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
• time of server enquiry
is transferred to a Google server in the USA and is stored there. The information is utilized to evaluate the use made of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to produce further services associated with the use made of the website and of the Internet, for purposes of market research and needs-oriented design of these Internet pages. Where appropriate, this information is also passed on to third parties, provided this is legally prescribed, or to the extent that third parties process this data on commission. In no case will your IP address be used in connection with other Google data.
You can prevent the installation of the cookies by adjusting the browser-software settings appropriately. In this case, however, we draw your attention to the fact that not all of the functions of this website may then be fully available.
You can also prevent the acquisition of the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google in that you download and install the browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
As an alternative to the browser add-on, particularly in cases of browsers on mobile terminal devices you can also prevent recording by Google Analytics in that you click this link. This sets an opt-out cookie that prevents future recording of your data during your visit to this website: The opt-out cookie applies only in this browser and only for our website. It is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
You can find further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics in the Google Analytics help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en).
On this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();”, to ensure that IP addresses are only recorded anonymized, to prevent direct person-specific allocation (so-called IP masking).
c) Google Marketing and Remarketing Services
We make use, on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer in the sense of article 6, paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO [GDPR]), of the marketing and remarketing services (in short, “Google Marketing Services”) of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).
Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and hereby offers a guarantee of complying with the European data-protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
The Google marketing services allow us to show targeted advertisements for and on our website, thereby presenting users only advertisements that potentially appeal to their interests. If, for example, a user is shown advertisements for products for which he or she has shown an interest on other websites, one then speaks of “remarketing”. To this end, on calling up our and other websites on which Google marketing services are active, a code from Google is executed directly by Google and so-called (re)marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also referred to as “web beacons”) are integrated in the website. With their help an individual cookie, i.e. a small file, is stored on the user’s device (instead of cookies, comparable technologies can also be used). The cookies can be set by various domains, amongst others by google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com and googleadservices.com. In this file it is noted which web pages were visited by the user, in which content he or she showed an interest, and which offers were clicked, as well as technical information on the browser and the operating system, referring websites, the time of the visit and further details on the utilization of the online offer. The user’s IP address is also recorded, whereby we state, in the context of Google Analytics, that within the member states of the European Union and in other states contracting to the agreement on the European Economic Area the IP address is shortened and is only transferred un-shortened to a server of Google in the USA, and shortened there, in exceptional cases. The IP address is not brought together with data of the user within other offers from Google. The aforementioned information can also be brought together with such information from other sources by Google. If the user subsequently visits other websites, he or she can be shown advertisements adapted to him/her, corresponding to his/her interests.
In the context of Google marketing services, the user’s data is processed pseudonymized, i.e. Google stores and processes, for example, not the name or e-mail addresses of the users, but processes the relevant data, with respect to the cookie, within pseudonymized user profiles. In other words, from Google’s viewpoint the advertisements are not administrated for and shown to a specific, identified person, but for the cookie owner, regardless of whom this cookie owner is. This does not apply if a user has explicitly permitted Google to process the data without this use of pseudonyms. The information collected by Google marketing services on the users is transferred to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the USA.
One of the Google marketing services made use of by us is the online advertising program “Google AdWords”. In the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords customer receives a different “conversion cookie”. Cookies cannot therefore be subsequently tracked over the websites of Adwords customers. The information collected with the help of the cookies serves in the preparation of conversion statistics for Adwords customers that have opted for conversion tracking. The Adwords customers are told the total number of users who have clicked their advertisement and have been forwarded to a page containing a conversion-tracking tag. No information is contained, however, which allows users to be personally identified.
We can also make use of the service “Google Optimizer”. Google Optimizer allows us to understand, in the context of so-called “A/B testings”, what effects various changes to a website (e.g. changes in the input fields, in the design, etc.) can have. For these testing purposes cookies are stored in the users’ devices. Only pseudonymized user data is thereby processed.
We can, moreover, make use of “Google Tag Manager”, in order to integrate and to manage the Google analysis and marketing services on our website.
Further information on the use of data by Google for marketing purposes can be found on the overview page: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads, Google’s data-protection statement being accessible under https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.
If you want to object to the interest-specific advertising undertaken by Google marketing services you can use the settings and opt-out options made available by Google: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences.
6. FACEBOOK CUSTOM AUDIENCES AND FACEBOOK MARKETING SERVICES
Within our online offer use is made, on the basis of our legitimate interests in analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer and for this purpose the so-called “Facebook Pixel” of the social-network company Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are resident in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and hereby offers a guarantee of complying with the European data-protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
With the help of Facebook Pixels, Facebook is able to target the visitors to our online offer for the presentation of advertisements (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly we make use of Facebook Pixels to limit the use of Facebook ads placed by us to Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer, or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interest in certain topics or products, as determined on the basis of the web pages visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called “custom audiences”). With the help of Facebook Pixels we would also like to ensure that our Facebook ads appeal to potentially interested users and do not pester them. With the help of Facebook Pixels we can furthermore anticipate the effectiveness of the Facebook advertisements for statistical and market-research purposes, in that we can see whether users, after clicking a Facebook advertisement on our website, are passed on (so-called “conversion”).
