However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website operator.

§ 8 Integration of Google Maps

(1) We use Google Maps on this website. This enables us to display interactive maps directly on the website and makes it easy for you to use the map function.

(2) Visiting our website means Google receives the information that you have accessed the relevant part of our website. The data specified in § 3 of this policy is also transmitted. This occurs regardless of whether you are logged into your Google user account, or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data is linked directly to your account. If you do not want your data to be linked to your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles, and evaluates them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. This evaluation is carried out (even for users who are not logged in) in particular to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, however you must contact Google in order to exercise this right.

§ 9 Use of Google Ads Conversion

(1) We use Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive services by means of advertising material on external websites. We can determine the success of individual advertising initiatives based on the data collected from the advertising campaigns. In doing so, we aim to display advertising that is of interest to you, to make our website more attractive to you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.

(2) This method of advertising is delivered by Google using ad servers. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters to gauge success, such as the display of advertising or clicks by users. If you reach our website via a Google ad, Google Ads stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies generally expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. With these cookies, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) as well as opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wants to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.

(3) These cookies enable Google to recognise your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of the website of an Ads customer, and the cookie stored on his or her computer has not expired, Google and the customer can identify that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that site. A different cookie is assigned to every Ads customer. Cookies cannot, therefore, be tracked via the websites of Ads customers. We do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. Google only supplies us with statistical evaluations. Based on these evaluations, we can identify which of the advertising measures we have used are particularly effective. Further data from the use of the advertising material is not provided to us; in particular, we cannot identify users by means of this information.

(4) As a result of the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence over the scope and further use of data collected by Google through the use of this tool, and inform you that, to the best of our knowledge: the integration of Ads Conversion means that Google receives the information that you have accessed the relevant part of our website or have clicked on one of our ads. If you are registered for a Google service, Google can link your visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google, or are not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.

(5) You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in several ways:

  1. By setting your browser software accordingly, in particular the restriction of third-party cookies means you will not receive advertisements from third-party providers;
  2. By deactivating cookies for conversion tracking, through setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, although this setting is cleared when cookies are deleted;
  3. By deactivating interest-related ads from the providers that are part of the self-regulation campaign “About Ads”, via the link  http://www.aboutads.info/choices, although this setting is cleared when cookies are deleted;
  4. 4. By permanently deactivating it in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browser at the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website.

(6) The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f of the GDPR. You can find further information about the Google privacy policy here: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy und https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html. Alternatively, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) website at http://www.networkadvertising.org Google has committed itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

§ 10 Remarketing

In addition to AdWords Conversion, we also use Google Remarketing. This is a procedure that we would like to use to contact you again. This allows you to see our advertisements on other websites after visiting our website. This is achieved by means of cookies stored in your browser, which Google uses to collect and evaluate your usage behaviour when visiting various websites. This enables Google to detect your previous visit to our website. Google does not, according to its own assertions, merge the data collected in the scope of remarketing with your personal data that may have been stored by Google. In particular, according to Google, pseudonymisation is used in remarketing.
