9) Google Analytics 4
10) Google signals
We have activated Google signals in Google Analytics 4. This updates existing Google Analytics features (ad reports, remarketing, cross-device reports, and interest and demographic reports) to get aggregated and anonymised data from you, provided you have allowed personalised ads in your Google account.
What makes this special is that it is cross-device tracking. This means your data can be analysed across devices. By activating Google signals, data is collected and linked to the Google account. Google can thus recognise, for example, if you view a product on our website via a smartphone and only buy the product later via a laptop. Thanks to the activation of Google signals, we can launch cross-device remarketing campaigns that would otherwise not be possible in this form. Remarketing means that we can also show you our offer on other websites.
In Google Analytics 4, Google signals also collect other visitor data such as location, search history, YouTube history and data about your actions on our website. This gives us better advertising reports from Google and more useful information about your interests and demographics. This includes your age, what language you speak, where you live or what gender you are. Social criteria such as your profession, marital status or income are also added. All these characteristics help Google Analytics 4 to define groups of people or target groups.
The reports also help us to better assess your behaviour, your wishes and interests. This allows us to optimise and adapt our services and products for you. This data expires by default after 26 months. Please note that this data collection only takes place if you have allowed personalised advertising in your Google Account. This is always aggregated and anonymous data and never data of individual persons. You can manage or delete this data in your Google Account.
11) Google reCAPTCHA
On our website, we use Google reCAPTCHA to check and prevent interactions on our website by automated accesses, e.g. by so-called bots. This is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as "Google".
This service enables Google to determine from which website a request is sent and from which IP address you use the so-called reCAPTCHA input box. In addition to your IP address, Google may also collect other information that is necessary for the provision and guarantee of this service.
Our legitimate interest lies in the security of our website and in the prevention of unwanted, automated access in the form of spam or similar. Google offers further information on the general handling of your user data at https://policies.google.com/privacy.
12) Google Remarketing
Our website uses the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google Ads and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This function makes it possible to link the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalised advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behaviour on one end device (e.g. mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have given corresponding consent, Google will link your web and app browsing history with your Google account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalised advertising messages can be served on every device on which you log in with your Google account.
To support this feature, Google Analytics 4 collects Google-authenticated IDs of users, which are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create target groups for cross-device ad advertising.
You can permanently opt-out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by deactivating personalised advertising in your Google Account; follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/

Our website uses the visitor action pixel from Facebook, Facebook Inc.,1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94025, USA ("Facebook") for conversion measurement. This makes it possible to track the behavior of site visitors 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 data collected 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, in accordance with the Facebook Data Use 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. You can also deactivate the "Custom Audiences" remarketing function in the Ad Settings section at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. To do this, you must be logged into Facebook.
