Our website uses the online marketing programme “Google Ads”, including conversion tracking. Google
conversion tracking is a service operated by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA
94043, USA; “Google”). If you click on adverts placed by Google, a cookie is placed on your computer for
conversion tracking. These cookies have limited validity, do not contain any personal data and thus cannot be
used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we
and Google can recognize that you have clicked on the advert and were forwarded to this page. Every Google
Ads customer receives a separate cookie. Therefore, it is not possible to track cookies relating to the websites of
Ads customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie serves the purpose of producing
conversion statistics. This allows us to find out the total number of users who have clicked on our adverts and
were forwarded to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information
with which could be used to personally identify users. Processing is carried out on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f

advertising on the social network Facebook. We have implemented Facebook’s remarketing tag on our website
for this purpose. This tag sets up a direct connection to Facebook’s servers when you visit our website. This
informs the Facebook server which of our web pages you have visited. Facebook assigns this information to your
personal Facebook user account. When you visit the social network Facebook you will then be shown
personalized, interest-related Facebook ads. Processing is carried out on the basis of art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR due to
our justified interest in the above purpose.
