This includes the storage of the logon and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, changes to your data stored with the shipping service provider will be logged.

    Credentials: To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address. Optionally, we ask you to give a name, for the purpose of personal address in the newsletter.

    Google Universal Analytics

    We use Google Analytics in the design as "Universal Analytics" on. "Universal Analytics" means a process of Google Analytics, in which the user analysis is based on a pseudonymous user ID and thus a pseudonymous profile of the user is created with information from the use of different devices (so-called "cross-device tracking") ,

    Targeting with Google Analytics

    We use Google Analytics to display the advertisements displayed within Google's advertising services and its affiliates, only those users who have shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain characteristics (eg interest in specific topics or products visited by them) Web pages) that we submit to Google (so-called "Remarketing" or "Google Analytics Audiences"). With Remarketing Audiences, we also want to make sure that our ads meet the potential interest of users.

    Google Adsense with personalized ads

    We use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online service within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO) , USA, ("Google").

    Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

    We use the AdSense service, which allows ads to appear on our website and reward us for their display or other use. For this purpose, usage data, such as the click on an ad and the IP address of the users are processed, whereby the IP address is shortened by the last two digits. Therefore, the processing of the data of the users is pseudonymized. 

    We use Adsense with personalized ads. In doing so, Google draws conclusions about their interests on the basis of the websites visited by users or used apps and the user profiles created in this way. Advertisers use this information to align their campaigns with these interests, which benefits users and advertisers alike. For Google, ads are personalized when collected or known data determines or influences ad selection. These include previous searches, activities, site visits, apps, demographics, and location information. Specifically, this includes demographic targeting, interest category targeting, remarketing, and targeting of customer matching lists and audience lists uploaded to DoubleClick Bid Manager or Campaign Manager.

    Google Adsense with non-personalized ads

    We use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online service within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO) , USA, ("Google").

Therefore, the processing of the data of the users is pseudonymized. 

    We use Adsense with non-personalized ads. The ads are not displayed based on user profiles. Non-personalized ads are not based on past user behavior. Targeting uses contextual information, including coarse (eg, on-site) geotargeting based on the current location, content on the current website or app, and current search terms. Google prohibits any personalized targeting, including demographic targeting and user list targeting.

    Google AdWords and conversion measurement

    We use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online service within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO) , USA, ("Google").

    Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European privacy legislation (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

    We use Google's online AdWords marketing tool "AdWords" to place ads on the Google advertising network (eg, in search results, in videos, on websites, etc.) to show them to users who have a suspected interest in the ads. This allows us to better target advertisements for and within our online offering so that we only present ads to users that potentially match their interests. For example, if a user sees ads for products he's been looking for on other online offerings, that's called remarketing. For these purposes, upon access to our and other websites where the Google Advertising Network is active, Google will immediately execute a code from Google and become so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also as " Web beacons ") incorporated into the website. With their help, the user's device stores an individual cookie, ie a small file (instead of cookies, comparable technologies can also be used). In this file is noted which web pages the user visited, for what content he is interested and what offers the user has clicked, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time and other information on the use of the online offer.

    Furthermore, we receive an individual "conversion cookie". The information obtained through the cookie is used by Google to generate conversion statistics for us. However, we only hear about the anonymous total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies users.

    The data of the users are pseudonym processed in the context of the Google advertising network. For example, Google does not store and process users' names or e-mail addresses, but processes the relevant data in a cookie-related manner within pseudonymous user profiles. That is, from the perspective of Google, the ads are not managed and displayed to a specifically identified person, but to the cookie owner, regardless of who that cookie owner is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the United States.

    For more information about Google's data usage, hiring and disagreement options, please read Google's Privacy Policy (https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads) as well as in the settings for the presentation of advertising impressions by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated).

    Google Doubleclick

    We use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online service within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO) , USA, ("Google").

    Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European privacy legislation (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

    We use the online marketing method Google "DoubleClick" to place ads on the Google advertising network (eg, in search results, in videos, on websites, etc.). Double Click is characterized by displaying real-time ads based on the alleged interests of users. This allows us to better target advertisements for and within our online offering so that we only present ads to users that potentially match their interests. For example, if a user sees ads for products he's been looking for on other online offerings, that's called remarketing. For these purposes, upon access to our and other websites where the Google Advertising Network is active, Google will immediately execute a code from Google and become so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also as " Web beacons ") incorporated into the website. With their help, the user's device stores an individual cookie, ie a small file (instead of cookies, comparable technologies can also be used). In this file is noted which web pages the user visited, for what content he is interested and what offers the user has clicked, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time and other information on the use of the online offer. 

    The IP address of the users is also recorded, whereby this is shortened within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and only in exceptional cases completely transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The above information may also be linked by Google with such information from other sources. If the user subsequently visits other websites, they may be shown advertisements tailored to their interests based on their alleged interests based on their user profile.

    The data of the users are pseudonym processed in the context of the Google advertising network. For example, Google does not store and process users' names or e-mail addresses, but processes the relevant data in a cookie-related manner within pseudonymous user profiles. That is, from the perspective of Google, the ads are not managed and displayed to a specifically identified person, but to the cookie owner, regardless of who that cookie owner is.

    Range measurement with Matomo

    As part of Matomo's range analysis, the following data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer as defined in Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO): the type of browser you use and the browser version, the operating system you are using, your country of origin, the date and time of the server request, the number of visits, how long you spent on the site, and the external links you have activated. The IP address of the users is anonymized before being saved.

    Matomo uses cookies that are stored on users' computers and that allow an analysis of how users use our online offerings. In this case, pseudonymous user profiles of the processed data can be created. The cookies have a retention period of one week. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will only be stored on our server and will not be passed on to third parties.

    Users can object to the anonymized data collection by the program Matomo at any time with effect for the future by clicking on the link below. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in your browser, with the result that Matomo no longer collects session data. If users delete their cookies, however, this means that the opt-out cookie is also deleted and must therefore be reactivated by the users.

    The logs with the data of the users will be deleted after 6 months at the latest.

     

    VG Word / Scalable Central Measurement Method

    We use the "Scalable Central Measurement Method" (SZM) of INFOnline GmbH (INFOnline GmbH, Brühler Str. 9, D-53119 Bonn.) For the determination of statistical parameters for determining the copy probability of texts. Anonymous measurements are taken. Alternatively, traffic metering uses a session cookie or a signature created from various automatically transmitted information from your browser to recognize computer systems. IP addresses are only processed in anonymous form. The procedure was developed in compliance with data protection. The only goal of the procedure is to determine the copying probability of individual texts. At no time individual users are identified. Your identity always remains protected. You will not receive advertising through the system.

    Many of our pages are provided with JavaScript calls, through which we report the access to the collecting society Wort (VG Wort). We allow our authors to participate in the distributions of the VG Wort, which complies with the statutory remuneration for the use of copyrighted works in accordance with Art. § 53 UrhG.

    Here user data and metadata of the users are processed, whereby the IP addresses are shortened and the measurement procedures are pseudonymous. The shortened IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. The usage data in connection with a pseudonymous assignment value ("identifier") are stored for a maximum of 6 months.

    Users are also provided with an opt-out in order to object to the above mentioned purposes: https://optout.ioam.de, Further information can be found in the INFOnline privacy policy https://www.infonline.de/datenschutz/benutzer.

    Online presence in social media

    We maintain online presence within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, prospects and users active there and to inform them about our services.

    We point out that data of the users outside the area of the European Union can be processed. This can result in risks for the users, because for example the enforcement of the rights of the users could be made more difficult. As for US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we point out that they are committed to upholding the EU's privacy standards.

    Furthermore, the data of the users are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles can be created from the user behavior and resulting user interests. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are supposedly in line with the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users, in which the user behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, in the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the devices used by the users (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and logged in to them).

    The processing of personal data of users is based on our legitimate interests in an effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. If the users are asked by the respective providers for a consent in the data processing (ie their agreement eg by ticking a check box or confirmation of a button explain) is the legal basis of the processing Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.

    For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of contradiction (opt-out), we refer to the following linked information of the provider.

    Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be claimed most effectively from the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, then you can contact us.
