ONLINE MARKETING

10.1 DoubleClick by Google

This website uses the online marketing tool DoubleClick by Google, operated by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("DoubleClick").

DoubleClick uses cookies to display ads relevant to users, improve campaign performance reports, or prevent a user from seeing the same ads multiple times. Google collects which ads are displayed in which browser via a cookie ID and can thus prevent them from being displayed multiple times. The processing is based on our legitimate interest in the optimal marketing of our website in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

In addition, DoubleClick can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions that relate to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees a DoubleClick ad and later visits the advertiser's website with the same browser and buys something there. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not contain any personal information.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google's server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: By integrating DoubleClick, Google receives information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an ad 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 learn your IP address and save it.

If you do not want to participate in this tracking process, you can block cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain www.googleadservices.com, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, although this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies. Alternatively, you can inform yourself about setting cookies and make settings regarding them at the Digital Advertising Alliance at www.aboutads.info. Finally, you can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and decide on a case-by-case basis or generally exclude the acceptance of cookies.

We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. We thus pursue the interest in displaying advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you, and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.

The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad served by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. These cookies generally lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve to personally identify you. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified. If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can block this usage by disabling the Google conversion tracking cookie in your internet browser under user settings.
