Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
18.6. For more information about Google’s use of data and about setting and objection options, please visit the following Google webpages: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners (“Use of data by Google when using the websites or apps of our partners”), https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads (“Use of data for advertising purposes”), https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated(“Manage information Google uses to display advertising”).
19.1. On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. of the German Civil Code), we make use of the information provided on this website.

19.3. Google’s marketing services allow us to display advertisements for and on our website in a more targeted manner to show users only ads that potentially match their interests. If, for example, a user is shown ads for products in which he is interested on other websites, this is referred to as “remarketing”. For these purposes, when you visit our and other websites on which Google marketing services are active, Google directly executes a code from Google and incorporates so-called (re)marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as “web beacons”) into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, i.e. a small file, is stored on the user’s device (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). The cookies can be set by various domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com.

19.4. User data is processed pseudonymously within the framework of Google marketing services. I.e. Google does not store and process the name or e-mail address of the user, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. This means that, from Google’s point of view, the ads are not administered and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie holder, regardless of who this cookie holder is. This does not apply if a user has expressly permitted Google to process the data without this pseudonymisation. The information Google Marketing Services collects about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the United States.

AdWords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users.
19.8. We can also use the service “Google Optimizer”. Google Optimizer allows us to track the effects of various changes to a website (e.g. changes to input fields, design, etc.) within the framework of so-called “A/B-Testings”. For these test purposes, cookies are stored on the devices of the users. Only pseudonymous data of the users will be processed.

This includes storing the login and confirmation times as well as the IP address. Likewise the changes of your data stored with the dispatch service provider are logged.
24.4. Dispatch service provider: The newsletter is dispatched via “MailChimp”, a newsletter dispatch platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. You can view the data protection regulations of the shipping service provider here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/. The Rocket Science Group LLC d/b/a MailChimp is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with the European level of data protection (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TO6hAAG&status=Active).
24.5. If we use a shipping service provider, the shipping service provider may, according to its own information, use this data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without allocation to a user, to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for technical optimisation of the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or pass them on to third parties.
24.6. Registration data: To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address. Optionally we ask you to enter a name in the newsletter in order to address you personally.
24.7. Success measurement – The newsletter contains a so-called “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized file which is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened or, if we use a dispatch service provider, from its server. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are first collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services on the basis of technical data or target groups and their reading behaviour on the basis of their retrieval points (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or access times. Statistical surveys also include determining whether newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. It is, however, neither our endeavour nor, if used, that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
24.8. Germany: The dispatch of the newsletter and the performance measurement are carried out on the basis of the consent of the recipients accordingly Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 DSGVO i.V.m § 7 Abs. 2 No. 3 UWG or on the basis of the legal permission according to § 2 No. 3 UWG. § 7 Abs. 3 UWG.
24.9. Austria: The dispatch of the newsletter and the performance measurement are carried out on the basis of the consent of the recipients in accordance with § 2 of the Austrian law. Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 DSGVO i.V.m § 107 Abs. 2 TKG or on the basis of the legal permission pursuant to § 107 Abs. 2 and 3 TKG.
24.10. The logging of the registration procedure is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with the provisions of the German Data Protection Act. Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO and serves as proof of consent to receive the newsletter.
24.11. Newsletter recipients can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke their consent. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. At the same time, their consent to the measurement of success expires. A separate revocation of the performance measurement is unfortunately not possible, in this case the entire newsletter subscription must be cancelled. With the cancellation of the newsletter, the personal data are deleted, unless their retention is legally required or justified, in which case their processing is limited only to these exceptional purposes. In particular, we may store the deleted e-mail addresses for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before we delete them for the purpose of sending the newsletter in order to be able to prove that we have previously given our consent. The processing of these data is limited to the purpose of a possible defense against claims. An individual deletion request is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of a consent is confirmed at the same time.
25. integration of third party services and content
25.1. Within the scope of our online offer, we act on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. of the German Civil Code). DSGVO) content or service offers from third parties in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”). This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the user, since they would not be able to send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of these contents. We strive to use only those contents, whose respective offerers use the IP address only for the distribution of the contents. Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. The “pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may include technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visit times and other information about the use of our website, as well as may be linked to such information from other sources.
25.2. The following presentation provides an overview of third party
providers and their contents, along with links to their data protection
