Google Tag Manager
Wir nutzen auf unserer Seite den Dienst Google Tag Manager der Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94.043 USA. Mit dem Google Tag Manager können Vermarkter Website-Tags über eine Oberfläche verwalten. Bei einem Tag handelt es sich um eine Markierung oder Auszeichnung eines Datenbestandes. Die über den Google Tag Manager eingerichteten Tags sorgen für die Erfassung von Daten, die an das Zielsystem weitergegeben werden. Weil die Daten nur durchgereicht werden, erhebt bzw. speichert das System die ermittelten Daten nicht selbst. Der Tag Manager sorgt somit lediglich für die Auslösung anderer Tags, die ihrerseits unter Umständen Daten erfassen. Zu diesen jeweiligen Drittanbietern finden sich entsprechende Erklärungen in dieser Datenschutzerklärung. Der Google Tag Manager verwendet diese Daten aber nicht. Haben Sie eine Deaktivierung von Cookies eingestellt oder sonst vorgenommen, wird diese für alle Tracking-Tags beachtet, die mit dem Google Tag Manager eingesetzt wurden, das Tool ändert also Ihre Cookie-Einstellungen nicht.

Your browser will contact the Google servers, which will inform Google that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Due to our legitimate interest in a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers and in making it easy to find the places we have indicated on the website, the legal basis results from Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

4.2. Social Media
We also offer you comprehensive personal support and the option of remaining in contact with us by way of our pages in social media (Facebook, YouTube, Xing, LinkedIN) on the basis of Art. 6, Para. 1, Page 1, Item f of the GDPR. These social media services collect personal data themselves, for example, by way of the profile you created there or via social plugins implemented in the websites of third parties.
If you access a website of our Internet presence that contains such a plugin, your browser creates a direct connection to the servers of the companies involved. The content of the plugins is transmitted by these companies directly to your browser and embedded in the website. For this reason, we have no influence on the scope of data that the companies involved collect with the help of these plugins. We just want to tell you what we know about this:
By embedding the plugins, the companies involved collect the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our Internet presence. If you are logged into one of the companies cited above, the company can attribute the visit to your account there.
If you interact with the plugins, the corresponding information is transferred directly from your browser to the company in question and stored there. If you do not have an account with one of the companies cited above, it is still possible that the company can learn your IP address and store it.
As a result, it may still be possible that the company listed above will record every visitor to our Internet presence based on their IP address and the URL accessed. This is even the case if the visitors do not click on the plugins and if they are not logged into the company with a user account.
You can find the purpose and scope of the data collection and further processing and data usage by these companies as well as your rights in this regard and the setting options for protecting your privacy in the following privacy policies:

Facebook Pixel, Facebook Custom Audiences und Facebook Conversion

With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for us to track the success of our own Facebook advertising campaigns and to optimise the play-out of Facebook advertising campaigns (so-called Facebook ads) to interested target groups.
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 or who have certain characteristics (e.g., interests in certain topics or products determined based on the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Facebook Custom Audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of users and do not have a harassing effect. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can further track the effectiveness of the 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 "Facebook Conversion API").
In connection with the Facebook Conversion API, the following data is used:
- Usage data (e.g. web pages visited, interest in content, access times).
- Meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).
- Location data (information about the geographical position of a device or person).
- Extended data processing: email address, phone number, gender, date of birth, first and last name, address, user IDs.
The processing of data by Facebook is carried out within the framework of Facebook's data use policy. For general guidance on the display of Facebook ads, please refer to Facebook's Data Use Policy: www.facebook.com/policy.php. Specific information and details about the Facebook Pixel and how it works can be found in Facebook's help section: www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.
You can object to the collection by the Facebook pixel and use of your data to display Facebook ads. To adjust which types of ads are displayed to you within Facebook, you can visit the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions there regarding the settings for usage-based advertising: www.facebook.com/settings.
