5. GOOGLE ADWORDS UND GOOGLE CONVERSION-TRACKING

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising platform of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).

As Google AdWords client, we are using a tool known as conversion tracking. If you click a Google ad, a cookie will be set for conversion tracking. Cookies are tiny text files which your Internet browser stores on your computer. Most of these cookies expire after 30 days, some expire after three months. Cookies are not intended to personally identify the user. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we can see that the user has clicked the ad and was transferred to that page.

A different cookie is assigned to each Google AdWords client. The cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords clients. Information collected via the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for Adwords clients that opted for conversion tracking. Adwords clients will learn the total number of users that have clicked their adverts and were referred to a page featuring a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive information which would allow them to identify the user.

If you want to opt out of tracking, you may adjust the settings of your Internet browser to deactivate the Google conversion tracking cookie. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

“Conversion cookies” are stored according to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. As operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour to optimise the services offered on our website and our adverts. If you want to learn more about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking, please go to the Google privacy policies at: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

You can adjust the settings of your browser to receive information when cookies are set, you may allow cookies only in a particular case, you may disable cookies in certain cases or generally, and you may activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. If you disable cookies, you might not benefit from the full functionality of this website.

6. SALESVIEWER®-TECHNOLOGY

This website uses SalesViewer, an analytic tool of SalesViewer GmbH, for the purpose of marketing, market research, and optimization. 

Our website uses a Javascript-based tracking code in order to identify the following visitor data:

  • Visitor’s name, origin, and industry
  • the website (URL) visited prior to our website (URL referrer)
  • certain keywords
  • visitor behaviour (such as subpages visited, time and duration of visits)

The legal basis of processing is our legitimate interest in achieving the purposes of marketing, market research and optimization pursued by us.

No cookies or similar files are stored on devices for the purpose of these processing activities.

SalesViewer identifies the visiting company by matching generally accessible information. The website visitor’s online identifier is encrypted using the hashing function and is transferred to SalesViewer as pseudonymised data after filtering private accesses. SalesViewer matches the online identifiers with a database containing only company-related data and provides us with such data on an Internet platform, if the match produces a hit. We are able to search for other, generally accessible data (such as contact and address data) on that platform.

You can object to the collection and storage of data at any time with effect for the future by clicking the link https://www.salesviewer.com/opt-out, to prevent the collection of data by SalesViewer® on this website in the future. If you do so, an opt-out cookie will be placed on your device for this website. If you erase your cookies on this browser, you have to click this link again.

7. YOUTUBE

We have integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an online video portal which allows you to upload, watch, like and comment video clips free of charge.

YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, of 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., of 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

We use the “extended data protection mode” option provided by YouTube. According to YouTube, although YouTube still contacts the Double Klick service of Google in “extended data protection mode”, Google’s privacy policy states that no personally data are analysed.

If you visit the subpages of our website on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) is integrated, a connection is created to the YouTube servers and YouTube receives your IP address in order to send the embedded video to your browser and to play it. YouTube is thereby informed which subpages of our website you visit and which videos you play. If you are logged into YouTube at the same time, that information is allocated to your YouTube account. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account before you visit our website. We are not aware how YouTube uses your data after allocation to your YouTube account and cannot influence any such use.

Google provides further information on YouTube’s privacy policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

The legal basis of processing is our legitimate interest in a creative and up-to-date online presence of our company and an attractive and modern presentation of its products and services.
