    - “Google Remarketing”: We use the offer of Google AdWords to draw attention to our attractive offerings with the help of advertising materials (so-called Google AdWords) on external websites. We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are by assessing the data of the advertising campaigns. We do this in pursuit of our interest in showing you advertisements that may be of interest to you, to make our website more interesting, and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs. These advertising materials are supplied by Google via so-called 'ad servers'. To do this, we use ad server cookies, which measure certain performance metrics such as the display of ads or user clicks. If you access our website through a Google ad, Google AdWords will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. This cookie will typically store the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions), and opt-out information (indicator that the user does not want to be addressed anymore) as analysis values. These cookies allow Google to recognise your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an AdWords customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the customer will be able to detect that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. Each AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked here via the websites of AdWords customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations, we can identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data on the use of the advertising material, and in particular we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no control over the extent and the further use of the data, which is collected through the use of this tool by Google, and inform you therefore according to our knowledge level: By incorporating AdWords conversion, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or have clicked on one of our ads. If you are registered with a service provided by Google, Google may associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or are not logged in, there is a chance that the provider will find and store your IP address. You can prevent the participation in this tracking process in various ways: a) by setting your browser software accordingly, in particular, the suppression of third-party cookies will prevent you from receiving any third party advertisements; b) by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser so that cookies from the domain 'www.googleadservices.com' are blocked, https://www.google.com/settings/ads, whereby this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based advertisements of the providers that are part of the 'About Ads' self-regulation campaign via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently deactivating them in the browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plug-in. We point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the features of these offerings in full. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 (1), sentence 1, lit. f GDPR.
