i) Google Analytics

This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf.

ii) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

In order to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our website for you, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. In this process, Google Adwords sets a cookie (see section 5) on your computer if you have accessed our website via a Google ad.

These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer’s website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.

Each Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Adwords customers’ websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The Adwords customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also refuse the setting of a cookie required for this – for example, via a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the “” domain. Google’s privacy policy on conversion tracking can be found here (

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of the use of the website. This makes it possible to recognize our visitors as soon as they call up websites within Google’s advertising network. In this way, advertisements can be presented within the Google advertising network that are related to content that the visitor has previously accessed on websites of the Google advertising network that also use Google’s remarketing function. According to Google, Google does not collect any personal data in this context. You can deactivate this function by making the appropriate settings at

With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our offer as a target group for the display of ads (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect. The Facebook pixel is used by us for the effectiveness of the Facebook ads and for statistical and market research purposes.

The processing of data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook’s data usage policy. Accordingly, general notes on the display of Facebook ads, in Facebook’s data usage policy: Specific information and details about the Facebook Pixel and how it works can be found in Facebook’s help section:
