Google AdWords and conversion measurement

We use Google’s online marketing method “AdWords” to place ads on the Google advertising network (e.g., in search results, in videos, on websites, etc.) to show them to users who have a suspected interest in the ads. This allows us to better target advertisements for and within our online offering so that we only present ads to users that potentially match their interests. If a user e.g. Showing ads for products he was looking for on other online offers is called remarketing. For these purposes, upon access to our and other websites where the Google Advertising Network is active, Google will immediately execute a code from Google and become so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also as ” Web beacons “) incorporated into the website. With their help, the user is provided with an individual cookie on the device. a small file is saved (instead of cookies, comparable technologies can be used). In this file is noted which web pages the user visited, for what content he is interested and what offers the user has clicked, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time and other information on the use of the online offer.

Furthermore, we receive an individual “conversion cookie”. The information obtained through the cookie is used by Google to generate conversion statistics for us. However, we only hear about the anonymous total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies users.

The data of the users are pseudonym processed in the context of the Google advertising network. That Google stores and processes e.g. not the name or e-mail address of the users, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. That from the perspective of Google, the ads are not managed and displayed to a specifically identified person, but to the cookie owner, regardless of who that cookie owner is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the United States.

If we ask users for consent (for example, in the context of a cookie consent), the legal basis of this processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. a. DSGVO.

Online presence in social media

We maintain online presence within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, prospects and users active there and to inform them about our services.

As for US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we point out that they are committed to upholding the EU’s privacy standards.

Furthermore, the data of the users are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, e.g. user profiles are created from the user behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles may in turn be used to e.g. Place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are allegedly in line with users’ interests. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users, in which the user behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, in the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the devices used by the users (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and logged in to them).

The processing of personal data of users is based on our legitimate interests in an effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO.
