(“Facebook”) is certified for the EU-US Privacy Shield regulation with the US Department of Commerce regarding the collection and processing of personal data of advertisers on Facebook, customers and business partners in the European Union (“Partners”) regarding advertisements and measurements and the products and services described in the certification of Facebook. Please see www.privacyshield.gov for more about the Privacy Shield programme. You can find Facebook’s privacy policy in respect of the EU-US Privacy Shield here.

Facebook social plugins

This website uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the social networking site facebook.com operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). Plugins are identified by one of the Facebook logos or by the wording “Facebook Social Plugin”. Here you can find a summary of the Facebook plugins and what they look like.

When you call up one of our web pages that includes a plugin of this type, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. Facebook sends the plugin’s content directly to your browser, which integrates it into the page. This means that we have no influence over the scope of data that Facebook obtains via this plugin and we are able to inform you about it only on the basis of our current state of knowledge.

Integrating plugins means that Facebook receives the information that your browser has opened any of our web pages, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged into Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server (potentially in the USA) and stored there. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook will be able to associate your visit to your website with your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by using the Like button or posting a comment, the corresponding information will be transmitted by your browser directly to Facebook and saved there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and shown to your Facebook friends. If you are not a member of Facebook it may still be possible for Facebook to find out your IP address and store it.

For information on the purpose and scope of data collection, further processing and use of your data by Facebook, your rights and your options for protecting your privacy, please see Facebook’s privacy policy.

If you are a member of Facebook and do not want Facebook to be able to link the data collected from our website directly to your Facebook profile, you need to log out of Facebook before visiting our website.

You can also block Facebook social plugins using add-ons from third parties for your browser, such as the “Facebook blocker”: Please find out about how your browser uses social plugins and cookies via the settings. You can obtain this information from the manufacturer of your browser. Moreover, third parties also offer so-called browser extensions and plugins with which you can configure how your browser handles cookies and personal information.

Data collected in this way are anonymous and do not give us access to personal information about individual users. However, such data are stored and processed by Facebook, and we provide you with such information as is available to us on this point. Facebook is able to link such data with your Facebook account and use it for its own promotional purposes, in accordance with the Facebook data use policy https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Conversion Tracking

Our website also uses Google Conversion Tracking, which installs a cookie on your computer if you have been directed to our website via a Google advertisement. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to acquire personal identification data. If a user visits a particular page of our website and if the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google will be able to see that the user clicked on the advertisement and has been forwarded to that page. Each Google AdWords client is allocated a different cookie, and so cookies cannot be tracked via AdWords clients’ websites. Information collected by conversion cookies is used to provide aggregate conversion statistics to AdWord clients who use conversion tracking. Clients are informed about the total number of users who have clicked on the advertisement and been forwarded to a page with a conversion tracking tag.

AdRoll

Our website uses AdRoll retargeting technology (AdRoll, 972 Mission St, 3rd Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103, U.S.A.) This makes it possible to specifically target internet users, who have already shown an interest in our website and offers, with advertising. We know from studies that displaying personalised advertising tailored to the interests of the internet user is more appealing than advertising that does not have such a personal connection. In the case of retargeting, advertising is displayed on the basis of a cookie-specific analysis of prior user behaviour. No personal data, except for the IP address, is stored here and it goes without saying that retargeting technology is used in accordance with currently valid laws on data protection.
