  5. Google (Re)Marketing Services
    • We use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“Google”) in the area of ​​marketing and re-marketing (“Google Marketing Services” for short).

    • Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thereby offers an appropriate guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.
    • By using Google Marketing Services, we can display advertisements for and on our website in a more targeted manner. We only want to present you with advertisements that are particularly interesting or might interest you. For example, if you are shown advertisements for products that you were interested in on other websites, this is usually referred to as “remarketing”.
    • For these purposes, when you visit our and other websites on which Google Marketing Services are activated, Google immediately executes a code from Google and so-called (re-)marketing tags are then integrated into the website. These (re-)marketing tags are invisible codes or graphics and are also called “web beacons”. These usually set an individual cookie, i.e. a small file, on the user's device.
    • The cookies can be set by different domains (e.g.,,,,, The cookie records which websites you have visited and what content you have chosen interested and which offers you clicked on.

If you then visit other websites, you may be shown advertisements tailored to your interests.
    • As part of Google Marketing Services, user data is processed pseudonymously. For example, Google does not store and process your name or email address, but rather processes the relevant data related to the cookies within the framework of pseudonymous user profiles. This means that, from Google's perspective, the advertisements are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but only for the cookie holder, so to speak. Who this owner is is irrelevant. The situation is different if you have expressly permitted Google to process your data without this pseudonymization. When you use Google Marketing Services, the information collected about you is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the USA.
    • We also use another Google marketing service, namely “Google AdWords”, an online advertising program from Google. Here, each AdWords customer receives a different “conversion cookie”. This means that cookies cannot be tracked across AdWords customers' websites.

As an AdWords customer, we learn the total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag.
