In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information can be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of marketing campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future content to the interests of the recipients.

5 Advertisement

5.1 Google Ads With Conversion Tracking 

We use Google Ads, an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to display ads in Google search results and on other websites. Advertisers define keywords on the basis of which ads will be displayed if people search for them. Google Ads belongs to Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland. 

Google Ads sets a conversion cookie if users come to our website via the advertisements.

Google receives the information that you have clicked on an ad from us. The unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) are usually stored as analysis values of a cookie. 

We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: 

If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is the possibility that the provider learns your IP address and stores it. 

5.1.2 Purpose of Data Processing 

Google Ads is used for the purpose of advertising the website. Personalized and interest-oriented advertising by third-party companies serves to market the solutions and services offered by us.

5.1.4 Duration of Storage, Possibility of Objection and Elimination 

The cookie set by Google Ads has a lifespan of 30 days and collects anonymized user data. In this way, returning users and their page views can be identified within this time frame. Google and we as operators of the site can see whether defined goals, so-called conversions, have been achieved on the website. This information is used to measure success and optimize advertising measures. The data collected in this way includes, among other things, the IP address of the internet connection you are using. This information is transferred by Google to the USA, stored and possibly passed on to third parties. 

As already described, you can object to the storage and evaluation of this data by Google at any time. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is permanently stored in your browser, which causes Google not to collect any data for storage and analysis.
