Re-marketing

Our website uses the re-marketing function from Google Analytics in conjunction with the cross-device functions from Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The access provider is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (Google). These functions make it possible to link up the target groups generated by Google Analytics with the Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick cross-device functions. In this way interest-related, personalised advertising messages, which have been matched to your earlier user behaviour on an appliance such as a Smartphone, can also be displayed on another of your appliances, for instance on a tablet or notebook.

If you have given the appropriate consent, for this purpose Google links your web and app browser history with your Google account. In this way the same personalised advertising messages can be switched to every terminal on which you register with your Google account. To support this function Google Analytics collects user IDs, authenticated by Google, which are temporarily linked with our Google Analytics data, in order to define and generate target groups for the cross-device advertising. You can object on a permanent basis to re-marketing by deactivating personalised advertising in your Google account.

The data collected is collated in your Google account solely on the basis of your consent, which you may grant to or withdraw from Google pursuant to Article 6 (1) point (a) GDPR. In the case of data collection processes, which are not collated in your Google account, because, for example, you have not set up such an account or have objected to the compilation of data, the collection of data relies on Article 6 (1) point (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest results from the fact that we have a need for the anonymised analysis of visits to our website for advertising purposes.
