Processing of personal data

Within the framework of the website, we process your personal data as follows (for further data processing within the framework of the website, please refer to the following sections of this data protection declaration):

Visit of the website

When using our website, our hosting provider logs so-called "log file" data each time the server is accessed, such as the name of the website accessed, previously visited page ("referrer" URL), product and version information of the browser and operating system used, requesting provider, date and time of access, search engines used, country of access, data volume transmitted, names of downloaded files and IP address.

The legal basis for processing is Article 6(1)(f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest in storing log file data lies in guaranteeing system security, including the clarification of misuse. The IP addresses will be deleted after a maximum of 7 days, unless they are needed longer due to a security-relevant incident, e.g. for reconnaissance or for evidence purposes.

You are not entitled to a right of objection against our above-mentioned processing of your personal data, since the aforementioned compelling reasons worthy of protection for our processing outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, and our processing also serves a possible assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Contact requests:

With contact inquiries we process your personal data such as name, address, e-mail address etc., which we need for the answer of your inquiry.

The legal basis for processing your personal data in the context of contact enquiries is Art. 6 Para. 1 b) Basic Data Protection Ordinance.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data collected in the context of registration or orders is Art. 6 para. 1 b) and Art. 6 para. 1 c) Basic Data Protection Ordinance.

We store the personal data that we require for sending the newsletter until you revoke your consent to receive the newsletter.

6. Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

On our website we use Google Adwords Conversion Tracking of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").

Google Adwords Conversion Tracking, an analysis service provided by Google Inc., uses cookies that are stored on your device to help the website analyze how users use the site by clicking on a Google ad. For this purpose, a so-called conversion tracking tag or code snippet is integrated into our website or app. As soon as a user clicks on this display, a temporary cookie is stored on his device. If the user then carries out a customer activity that is of interest to us (for example, purchases, registrations, filling out a contact form), Google and we as the website operator can recognize this. Google Adwords Conversion Tracking is used to analyze which keywords, ads, ad groups and campaigns are most successful for us. This enables us to make informed decisions about our online advertising and optimize campaigns in line with our business objectives. Our legitimate interest in using Google Adwords Conversion Tracking therefore lies in the analysis, optimisation and cost-effective operation of our online advertising.

The legal basis for data processing within the framework of Google Adwords Conversion Tracking is Art. 6 Para. 1 f) DSGVO.

8. Facebook Pixel / Facebook Custom Audience

Facebook Custom Audience is used on individual pages of our website. Facebook is used by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. Calif.

Facebook Custom Audience enables target group-oriented advertising on Facebook. The Facebook Pixel also allows us to associate which visits to our website are made by clicking on our Facebook ads. Facebook Custom Audience and Facebook Pixel therefore serve our legitimate interest in analysing, optimising and economically operating our online advertising.

When using Facebook Custom Audience via the customer list, our customer list is transmitted to Facebook and converted into fixed character strings using a hash procedure. Facebook can use this data to compare which of our customers are also members of Facebook and then play Facebook advertising to these customers or a part of these customers selected according to certain characteristics (e.g. age or interests) or to a comparable target group.

When using Facebook Custom Audience using the pixel method, an invisible Facebook pixel is integrated on our website which, among other things, transmits the Facebook user ID of the user (logged in to Facebook) and data for the use of our website to Facebook. This enables Facebook to track the online behavior of the users of our website. Facebook can display targeted advertisements to registered users (for example, for a product not purchased after an aborted order process).

In the pixel process as part of a so-called "extended comparison", such data (e.g. surname, first name, e-mail address, date of birth, etc. of users registered with us) are also transmitted to Facebook which enable Facebook to determine whether they are Facebook members even for visitors to our website who are not logged on to Facebook (in order to include such Facebook members in the above-mentioned target group advertising, if necessary).

You can object to your collection by the Facebook pixel at any time. See Letter d. in the "Cookies" section of this Privacy Statement.

In your Facebook account, you can also set what types of ads you see on Facebook.
