We use the functions of Google Retargeting. With the help of Google Retargeting, it is possible for us to address you again with the help of advertisements.

This technology allows Google to determine whether you have visited our websites. According to Google, this data is not merged with personal data. In addition, according to Google, pseudonymization is used for retargeting.

Within our online offer, the so-called “Facebook pixel” of the social network Facebook is used due to our legitimate interests in analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer and for these purposes.

With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display Facebook ads only to Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”). 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. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion”).

You can object to the collection by the Facebook pixel and use of your data to display Facebook ads. To set what types of ads are shown to you within Facebook, you can go to the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions there about usage-based advertising settings. The settings are platform-independent (desktop or mobile).
