They only help us to determine whether the same user who clicked on an affiliate link or was interested in an offer via our online offer took advantage of the offer, i.e. concluded a contract with the provider, for example.

Newsletter - success measurement

 

The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", ie a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from our server when the newsletter is opened or, if we use a shipping service provider, its server. As part of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of retrieval, are initially collected. 

This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the 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. However, it is neither our aim 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.

A separate revocation of the performance measurement is unfortunately not possible, in this case the entire newsletter subscription must be canceled.

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC (“Google”), on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the user is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law ( https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active ).

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and the internet. In doing so, pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.

We use Google Analytics to only display the advertisements placed within Google's advertising services and its partners to those users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products that are based on the visited Websites) that we transmit to Google (so-called "remarketing" or "Google Analytics audiences"). With the help of remarketing audiences, we would also like to ensure that our ads correspond to the potential interest of the users.

 

Google Adsense with personalized ads

 

We use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) , USA, ("Google").

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law ( https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active ).

We use the AdSense service, with the help of which advertisements are displayed on our website and we receive remuneration for their display or other use. For these purposes, usage data such as the click on an advertisement and the IP address of the user are processed, whereby the IP address is shortened by the last two digits. Therefore, the processing of the user data is pseudonymised.
 

We use Adsense with personalized ads. In doing so, Google draws conclusions about their interests on the basis of the websites visited by users or the apps used and the user profiles created in this way. Advertisers use this information to align their campaigns with these interests, which is beneficial for users and advertisers alike. For Google, advertisements are personalized when recorded or known data determine or influence the selection of advertisements. This includes previous searches, activities, website visits, the use of apps, demographic and location information. In detail, this includes: demographic targeting, targeting on interest categories, remarketing as well as targeting on lists for customer comparison and target group lists that have been uploaded to DoubleClick Bid Manager or Campaign Manager.

Google AdWords and Conversion Measurement

 

We use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) , USA, ("Google").

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

We use the online marketing process Google "AdWords" to place advertisements in the Google advertising network (e.g. in search results, in videos, on websites, etc.) so that they are displayed to users who have a presumed interest in the advertisements. This allows us to display advertisements for and within our online offer in a more targeted manner in order to only present users with advertisements that potentially correspond to their interests. If, for example, a user is shown advertisements for products that he was interested in on other online offers, this is referred to as "remarketing". For these purposes, when our and other websites on which the Google advertising network is active, a code is immediately executed by Google and so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as " "Web Beacons") integrated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, ie a small file, is saved on the user's device (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). This file records which websites the user has visited, which content he is interested in and which offers the user has clicked, as well as technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information on the use of the online offer.

We also receive an individual "conversion cookie". The information obtained with the help of the cookie is used by Google to generate conversion statistics for us. However, we only find out the anonymous total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.

The user data is processed pseudonymously within the Google advertising network. This means that Google does not store and process the name or email address of the user, for example, but processes the relevant data on a cookie-related basis within pseudonymous user profiles. In other words, from Google's point of view, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie owner, regardless of who this cookie owner is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymisation. The information collected about the users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the USA.

You can find more information about data usage by Google, setting and objection options in Google's data protection declaration ( https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads ) and in the settings for the display of advertisements by Google

Google Doubleclick

 

We use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) , USA, ("Google").

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

We use the online marketing process Google "Doubleclick" to place advertisements in the Google advertising network (e.g. in search results, in videos, on websites, etc.). Double Click is characterized by the fact that advertisements are displayed in real time based on the presumed interests of the users. This allows us to display advertisements for and within our online offer in a more targeted manner in order to only present users with advertisements that potentially correspond to their interests. If, for example, a user is shown advertisements for products that he was interested in on other online offers, this is referred to as "remarketing". For these purposes, when our and other websites on which the Google advertising network is active, a code is immediately executed by Google and so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as " "Web Beacons") integrated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, ie a small file, is saved on the user's device (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). This file records which websites the user has visited, which content he is interested in and which offers the user has clicked, as well as technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information on the use of the online offer.
 

The IP address of the user is also recorded, although it is shortened within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and only transferred in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. The aforementioned information can also be combined by Google with information from other sources. If the user then visits other websites, they can be shown advertisements tailored to them according to their presumed interests on the basis of their user profile.

The user data is processed pseudonymously within the Google advertising network. This means that Google does not store and process the name or email address of the user, for example, but processes the relevant data on a cookie-related basis within pseudonymous user profiles. In other words, from Google's point of view, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie owner, regardless of who this cookie owner is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymisation. The information collected about users by Google Marketing Services is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the USA.

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law ( https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active ).

With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is on the one hand able to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the presentation of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to only display the Facebook ads placed by us to Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products that are based on the visited Websites) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we would also like to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and are not annoying. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also understand the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion").

The processing of the data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook's data usage guidelines. Accordingly, general information on the presentation of Facebook ads in Facebook's data usage guidelines:
  https://www.facebook.com/policy . Special information and details about the Facebook pixel and how it works can be found in the Facebook help section:  https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616 .

VG Wort / scalable central measuring method

 

We use the "Scalable Central Measurement Method" (SZM) from INFOnline GmbH (INFOnline GmbH, Brühler Str. 9, D-53119 Bonn.) To determine statistical parameters to determine the probability of texts being copied. Anonymous measured values are collected in the process. For the recognition of computer systems, the access number measurement alternatively uses a session cookie or a signature that is created from various automatically transmitted information from your browser. IP addresses are only processed in anonymised form. The procedure was developed taking data protection into account. The sole aim of the procedure is to determine the probability of individual texts being copied. At no time individual users are identified. Your identity is always protected. You will not receive any advertising through the system.

Many of our pages have JavaScript calls that we use to report access to the Verwertungsgesellschaft Wort (VG Wort). We enable our authors to participate in the distributions of the VG Wort, which ensure the legal remuneration for the use of copyrighted works in accordance with § 53 UrhG.

Usage data and metadata of the users are processed, the IP addresses are shortened and the measurement methods are pseudonymous. The shortened IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. The usage data in connection with a pseudonymous allocation value (“identifier”) are stored for a maximum of 6 months.

The users also have an opt-out to object to the collection for the aforementioned purposes:
  https://optout.ioam.de . Further information can be found in the INFOnline data protection declaration  https://www.infonline.de/datenschutz/benutzer .

 

Criteo

 

We use the online marketing services of the provider Criteo GmbH, Gewürzmühlstr. 11, 80538 Munich, Germany.

Criteo's services allow us to display advertisements for and on our website in a more targeted manner in order to only present users with advertisements that potentially correspond to their interests. If, for example, a user is shown advertisements for products that he was interested in on other websites, this is referred to as "remarketing". For these purposes, when our and other websites on which Criteo is active are accessed, Criteo immediately executes a code from Criteo and so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as "web beacons") are placed on the website "labeled) included. With their help, an individual cookie, ie a small file, is saved on the user's device (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). This file records which websites the user has visited, which content he is interested in and which offers he has clicked, as well as technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information on the use of the online offer. The aforementioned information can also be combined by Criteo with information from other sources. If the user then visits other websites, the advertisements tailored to him can be displayed according to his interests.

The processing of user data is pseudonymous, ie no clear user data (such as names) are processed and the users' IP addresses are shortened. The processing takes place only on the basis of an online identification, a technical ID. Any IDs communicated to Criteo (e.g. from a customer care system) or email addresses are saved as
  so-called hash values encrypted and as one  Series of non-identification characters stored.

Further information as well as options to object (opt-out) to the collection by Criteo can be found in the data protection provisions of Criteo:

Visual website optimizer

 

Within our online offer, based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), the Visual Website Optimizer service (an offer from Wingify Software Private Limited , 404, Gopal Heights, Netaji Subhash Place, Pitam Pura, Delhi 110034, India).

Visual Website Optimizer allows in the context of so-called "A / B-Testings", "Click tracking" and "Heatmaps" to understand how different changes of a website affect (eg changes of the input fields, the design, etc.). A / B tests serve to improve the usability and performance of online offers. For example, users are shown different versions of a website or its elements, such as input forms, on which the placement of the content or the labeling of the navigation elements can differ. Subsequently, on the basis of the behavior of the user, for example, lingering on the website for a longer period of time or more frequent interaction with the elements, it can be determined which of these websites or elements correspond more to the needs of the user. "Click tracking" allows the movements of the users within an entire online offer to be monitored. Since the results of these tests are more accurate if the user interaction can be tracked over a certain period of time (e.g. can see whether a user would like to return), cookies are usually stored on the users' computers for these test purposes. "Heatmaps" are mouse movements by the user, which are combined to form an overall picture, with the help of which, for example, it can be recognized which website elements are preferred and which website elements users prefer less.

Cookies are only placed on users' devices for these test purposes. Only pseudonymous user data is processed. For further information we refer to the data protection declaration of Visual Website Optimizer:
  https://vwo.com/privacy-policy/ .

If you do not want the Visual Website Optimizer to record your usage behavior, you can object to the data collection using this link:
  https: // [PLEASE-INSERT YOUR DOMAIN] /? vwo_opt_out = 1 .

 

Crazy Egg

 


On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. our interest in the analysis, optimization and operation of our websites within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f. Of the GDPR, we use the analysis technology Crazy Egg from Crazy Egg, Inc. 16220 Ridgeview Lane, La Mirada, CA, 90638 USA. 

Crazy Egg allows so-called "A / B-Testings", "Click tracking" and "Heatmaps" to understand how various changes to a website affect (e.g. changes to the input fields, the design, etc.). A / B tests serve to improve the usability and performance of online offers. For example, users are shown different versions of a website or its elements, such as input forms, on which the placement of the content or the labeling of the navigation elements can differ. Subsequently, on the basis of the behavior of the user, for example, lingering on the website for a longer period of time or more frequent interaction with the elements, it can be determined which of these websites or elements correspond more to the needs of the user. "Click tracking" allows the movements of the users within an entire online offer to be monitored. Since the results of these tests are more accurate if the user interaction can be tracked over a certain period of time (e.g. can see whether a user would like to return), cookies are usually stored on the users' computers for these test purposes. "Heatmaps" are mouse movements by the user, which are combined to form an overall picture, with the help of which, for example, it can be recognized which website elements are preferred and which website elements users prefer less.

Technical data such as the selected language, system, screen resolution and browser type are also recorded. For technical reasons, this information is stored in a so-called session cookie. This means that this cookie is deleted after leaving the website and is not used to track users across multiple websites or to identify returning visitors.

The information collected does not contain any passwords, the IP address is anonymized and the information is not passed on to third parties.
 

The information is only used to improve the user-friendliness of our services. Further information can be found in Crazy Egg's privacy policy:

Online presence in social media

 

We maintain an online presence within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services.

We would like to point out that user data can be processed outside of the European Union. This can result in risks for the user because it could make it more difficult to enforce the users' rights, for example. With regard to US providers who are certified under the Privacy Shield, we would like to point out that they undertake to comply with the data protection standards of the EU.

Furthermore, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created from user behavior and the interests of the user resulting from this. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users' computers, in which the usage behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data can be stored in the usage profiles regardless of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).

The processing of the personal data of the users takes place on the basis of our legitimate interests in an effective information of the users and communication with the users according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit.f. GDPR. If the users are asked for their consent to the data processing by the respective providers (i.e. declare their consent, e.g. by ticking a check box or confirming a button), the legal basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.

For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the information provided by the providers linked below.

Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be most effectively asserted with the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. If you still need help, you can contact us.

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law ( https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active ).

When a user calls up a function of this online offer that contains such a plugin, his device establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly from Facebook to the user's device, which integrates it into the online offer. In doing so, usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to our level of knowledge.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your device to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out his IP address and save it. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is saved in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the related rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users can be found in Facebook's data protection information:
  https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ .
