§ 6 Web tracking
(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Ltd ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated thereby about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
(2) The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, which means that personal references can be ruled out. Insofar as the data collected about you is related to a person, this is therefore immediately excluded and the personal data is thus immediately deleted.
(5) We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained allow us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.
For the possible cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google complies with the data protection requirements for data transfer to third countries pursuant to Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. For this purpose, so-called EU standard contractual clauses have been concluded. You can view these here: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks?hl=en
Google Tag Manager
This website uses the Tag Manager from Google. This service allows us to manage website tags through one interface. This Google tool only sets tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is regularly collected in the process. However, this may trigger other tags, which in turn may collect data. The Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags when they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.
This website uses the analysis tool Matomo, an open source web analysis tool (https://matomo.org/).
We use the open source tool Matomo to analyze our website. The purpose of the data processing is an analysis of your surfing behavior. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual pages of our website. This helps us to improve our website and its user-friendliness.
Basically, a consent-free and completely anonymized tracking is established, which is supplemented by an extended consent-required tracking based on cookies. The legal basis for the processing of data, which is carried out by setting cookies and thus accessing the end device, is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a of the GDPR. This procedure takes into account all current data protection requirements. A third tracking (census measurement) determines the absolute number of page views on the server side independently of the previously integrated and possibly rejected tracking variants.
The Matomo software runs exclusively on the server of our service provider. Your personal data is only stored there. The data is not passed on to third parties.
The software is set so that the IP addresses are not stored completely, but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (Ex: 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, an assignment of the shortened IP address to the calling computer is no longer possible.
You have the option at any time to revoke the consent you have given to the setting of cookies via the cookie management functions of the website. In addition, you have the option of preventing consent-free tracking by calling up the data protection declaration and excluding consent-free tracking with effect for the future under "Prevent tracking". This revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing of the data that has taken place to date.
Matomo Tag Manager
We use the tag manager to integrate the analysis tool Matomo Analytics. The conversion pixels of our Meta and TikTok social media channels are also integrated via the tag manager. In addition, the tag manager is used to tag the form path for competition participation so that we can better measure the progress of the form.
Deactivate the user analysis by setting the checkbox for the opt-out for cookieless tracking. A cookie will then be set that stores your privacy preferences. Your visits to this website will then no longer be collected by the web analytics tool. Please note that the Matomo deactivation cookie of this website will also be deleted if you remove the cookies stored in your browser. Moreover, if you use a different computer or a different web browser, you will have to repeat the deactivation procedure.

§ 7 Usage-based and advertising content
We use "Google Ads" (formerly Google AdWords) on our website, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Google"). Google Ads enables us to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media on external websites. This enables us to determine how successful individual advertising measures are. These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called "AdServers". For this purpose, we use so-called AdServer cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days. They are not intended to identify you personally. The following information is usually stored as analysis values for this cookie: unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions), opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed). These cookies enable Google to recognize your web browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Ads customers' websites. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising tools; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google's server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of Google Ads. According to our knowledge, Google receives the information that you have called up the relevant part of our website or clicked on an ad from us. If you have a user account with Google and are registered, Google can assign the visit to your user account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is the possibility that Google learns your IP address and stores it.
We use Google Ads for marketing and optimization purposes, in particular to serve relevant and interesting ads to you, to improve campaign performance reports and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs. This is also our legitimate interest in the processing of the above data by the third-party provider. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR and, insofar as we obtain your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
You can prevent the installation of cookies by deleting existing cookies and deactivating the storage of cookies in the settings of your web browser. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent. It is also possible to prevent the storage of cookies by setting your web browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com" (https://www.google.de/settings/ads). We would like to point out that this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies. In addition, you can deactivate interest-based ads via the link https://optout.aboutads.info. We would like to point out that this setting will also be deleted when you delete your cookies.
We also use the Enhanced Conversions feature from Google Ads to optimize our advertising measures via Google and in the Google advertising network and to be able to better control and measure their success. Data can be used to better identify groups of people within the Google advertising network who are most likely to want to carry out or initiate conversion events (e.g. signing contracts) via our website. This is done by transmitting your known email addresses and telephone numbers (email addresses and telephone numbers mathematically hidden, i.e. “hashed”) to Google after you have completed a conversion event (e.g. conclusion of a contract or expression of interest in our services) on our website website.

This website uses the visitor action pixel from Facebook for conversion measurement. The provider of this service is Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland. However, according to Facebook, the data collected is also transferred to the USA and other third countries.
This allows the behavior of page visitors to be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider's website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This allows the effectiveness of the Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimized.
The collected data is anonymous for us as the operator of this website, we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, according to the Facebook data usage policy. This allows Facebook to enable the placement of advertisements on Facebook pages as well as outside of Facebook. This use of the data cannot be influenced by us as the site operator.
The use of Facebook Pixel is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in effective advertising measures including social media. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to store cookies), the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
Data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here:

The processing also takes place in a third country for which there is no Commission adequacy decision. Therefore, the usual level of protection for the GDPR cannot be guaranteed for the transfer, as it cannot be ruled out that in the third country, e.g. authorities can access the collected data. The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. Details can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/customaudience and https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/dataprocessing.
The legal basis for the transmission of personal data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, which you can revoke at any time via the cookie settings of this website.

According to LinkedIn, the data centers for your members (who, like us, are registered with LinkedIn and have an account) are located in the USA. The USA may have lower requirements for lawful processing of personal data than within the EU. The LinkedIn services make it necessary for data to be transferred from the European Union (EU), to the United States of America (USA) and back. This also affects you as a visitor, insofar as you use services and certain functions of LinkedIn, e.g. when you make a comment on a post by us.
The data transfer to the USA is based on standard contractual clauses. You can find information from LinkedIn on this under the following links:

Target group oriented advertising
We also occasionally use the social media platforms described to play out targeted advertising.
For this purpose, we use target group definitions that are provided to us by the social media provider. We only use anonymous target group definitions - that is, we define characteristics based on, for example, general demographic information, behavior, interests and connections. The operator of the social media platform uses these to play out advertisements to its users accordingly. The legal basis for this is the consent that the operator of the social media platform has obtained from its users. If you wish to revoke this consent, please use the revocation options provided by the provider of the social media platform, as the social media platform operator is responsible for this processing. Occasionally, we or the provider of the social media platform also use publicly available data for target group definition. The legal basis for this processing, if you have given your consent, is Art. 6 (1) a GDPR or, if permissible and relevant, Art. 6 (1) f GDPR in conjunction with our legitimate interest in advertising that corresponds as closely as possible to the target group.
We do not use target group definition based on location data. We do not pass on any personal data to the operator of the social media platform as part of the target group definition.
