Google Conversion Tracking and Google Remarketing
This website uses Google Conversion Tracking, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; „Google“) to measure the success of our advertising activities (AdWords). If you access our website through one of our Google ads, Google creates a cookie on your computer. Cookies do not collect data that personally identifies you. It helps us keep track of the number of people who clicked on a Google ad and were then transferred to our website. We do not receive any information on any other websites that you have visited. The data collected using Google Conversion Tracking allow us to compile statistics on the success and use of our AdWords campaigns. However, we do not collect or receive any information that would enable us to personally identify you.
Facebook Remarketing / Retargeting
Our site uses Facebook Rermarketing Tags for the social network Facebook, 1061 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, US. The remarketing tags establish a direct link between your browser and the Facebook server. This informs Facebook that you visited our website with your IP address. In turn, this allows Facebook to allocate the visit to our website to your user account. We can use the information obtained in this way for displaying Facebook ads. We would like to point out that, as the operator of the website, we receive no information from Facebook about the content and use of the data transmitted.
Further information is available in the Facebook data protection statement at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Facebook-Plugins (like button)

If you visit our pages, a direct connection is established via the plugin between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook thus receives information that you have visited our page with your IP address. If you click the ‘like button’ while you are logged in to your Facebook account, you can link contents of our pages to your Facebook profile. This way, Facebook can allocate your visit to our pages to your user account.

The +1 button allows you to publish information worldwide. Via the Google +1 button, you and other users receive personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you entered for a piece of content +1 as well as information concerning the page you were visiting when you clicked on +1. Your +1’s can be shown as tips together with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or your Google profile, or in other places on websites and in ads on the Internet.
Google records information on your +1 activities to improve Google services for you and others. To be able to use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you have used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who know your e-mail address or have other identifying information about you. In addition to the above-described uses, the information you provide is used in accordance with the applicable Google data protection/privacy policies. Google may publish aggregate statistics regarding the +1 activities of users or disclose these to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or associated websites.
Our pages incorporate Twitter functions. These functions are offered by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. By using Twitter and the ‘re-tweet’ function, the websites you visited are connected to your Twitter account and published to other users. During this process, data is also transferred to Twitter. We would like to point out that we, as providers of the pages, do not get any information on the contents of the transferred data or their actual usage by Twitter.
