We provide data to our partners, other trusted companies or individuals who process them on our behalf. This is done on the basis of our instructions and in accordance with applicable law, as well as appropriate confidentiality and security measures with which we ensure the protection of your data at all times.
Insofar as we collect data with the help of web analysis tools and use web advertising tools and in this context work together with independent third parties (who not contractors are of order processing), we will inform you in detail in section 3. At this point, you will also receive information on how you can exercise your opt-out and what technical options you have to prevent data collection.

Where is your personal information processed?
Your personal data will be processed by us or by the parties referred to in paragraph 1.4, both within and outside the European Union ("EU") and the European Economic Area ("EEA"). Please note: If your information is transmitted from your home country to another country, the laws that govern your privacy may differ from those in your country (and may provide a lower level of protection). For example, in non-EEA countries, there are other conditions under which law enforcement agencies may access your data than within the EEA. If we transfer your information to a country outside the EEA, we will take appropriate measures to ensure an adequate level of data protection (such as the conclusion of standard contractual clauses).
How long do we keep your data?
We will no longer save your information as fulfilling the purpose for which it was collected or as long as we have a legitimate interest in the storage and this interest outweighs your interest in the deletion, unless there is a longer storage legal basis (eg also due to commercial or tax law according to article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter c GDPR: In such an archiving the data for other accesses are blocked and after expiration of the legal retention periods deleted and destroyed in accordance with data protection). Afterwards we will delete your data. The respective retention periods depend on the underlying purpose and the type of data.

Technologies of self-reliant third parties
Furthermore, there are technologies on our website that are operated by independent third parties.
Google Analytics Remarketing
Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in combination with the functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick, which work on all devices. The provider of these solutions is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This function makes it possible to connect the advertising target groups generated with Google Analytics
Remarketing with the functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick, which work on all devices. This makes it possible to display interest-based customized advertising messages, depending on your prior usage and browsing patterns on a device (e.g. cell phone) in a manner tailored to you as well as on any of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have given us pertinent consent, Google will connect your web and app browser progressions with your Google account for this purpose. As a result, it is possible to display the same personalized advertising messages on every device you log into with your Google account.
To support this function, Google Analytics records Google authenticated IDs of users that are temporarily connected with our Google Analytics data to define and compile the target groups for the ads to be displayed on all devices.
You have the option to permanently object to remarketing / targeting across all devices by deactivating personalized advertising in your Google account. To do this, please follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
The consolidation of the recorded data in your Google account shall occur exclusively based on your consent, which you may give to Google and also revoke there (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). Data recording processes that are not consolidated in your Google account (for instance because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the consolidation of data), the recording of data is based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the anonymized analysis of website visitor for advertising purposes.

Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online promotional program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
In conjunction with Google AdWords, we use a tool called Conversion Tracking. If you click on an ad posted by Google, a cookie for Conversion Tracking purposes will be placed. Cookies are small text files the web browser places on the user’s computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we will be able to recognise that the user has clicked on an ad and has been linked to this page.
A different cookie is allocated to every Google AdWords customer. These cookies cannot be tracked via websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained with the assistance of the Conversion cookie is used to generate Conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted to use Conversion Tracking. The users receive the total number of users that have clicked on their ads and have been linked to a page equipped with a Conversion Tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that would allow them to personally identify these users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you have the option to object to this use by easily deactivating the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via your web browser under user settings. If you do this, you will not be included in the Conversion Tracking statistics.
The storage of “Conversion” cookies and the use of this tracking tool are based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user patterns, in order to optimize the operator’s web offerings and advertising.
