Links to other websites
In addition, if you linked to our website from a third party website, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party website and recommend that you check the policy of that third party website.
Third Parties and Social Plugins
Our websites may also contain third-party offers. If you click on any such offers, we will transfer the amount of data required to the appropriate provider e.g. the fact that you found the offer in question on our website and, if applicable, additional information that you have already provided for this purpose on our websites.
On our websites, whenever we use so-called “social plugins” from social networks like Facebook, Twitter and others, we incorporate them in the manner described below. When you visit our websites, social media plugins are deactivated. That means no information whatsoever is transferred to the operators of those networks. If you wish to use one of the networks, click on the appropriate plugin in order to be connected directly to that network’s server. If you have a user account with that network and are logged in at the moment you activate the plugin, the network will be able to detect your visit to our websites and assign it to your user account. If you wish to prevent that, please log off from the network before activating the social plugin. When you activate a social plugin, the network transfers the content thus made available directly to your browser, which incorporates it into our websites. In that situation, data transfers initiated and controlled by the respective social network may also take place. Your connection to a social network, the data transfers that take place between the network and your system, and your interactions on that platform are governed exclusively by the respective network’s data protection provisions. The social plugin will remain active until you deactivate it or delete your cookies. Whenever you click on the link to an offer or activate a social plugin, your personal information may be transferred to providers in countries outside the European Economic Area that, from the standpoint of the European Union (“EU”), do not guarantee an “appropriate level of protection” meeting EU standards for processing personal information. Please keep these circumstances in mind before you click on a link or activate a social plugin, thereby causing your data to be transferred.
Analysis of personal data and use of tools
We want the content of our websites to match your preferences as closely as possible, thereby improving what we offer you. To identify especially popular areas of our websites, we use the following analysis tools: Google Analytics and Adobe Analytics.
When we employ these analytics tools, information may be transferred to servers located outside the EU and processed there. Please note the following: From the standpoint of the European Union, the United States does not provide an “appropriate level of protection” meeting EU standards for the processing of personal information in general. However, an equivalent level of protection can be created for individual instances of processing by a company through certification under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework or other instruments (e.g. the EU’s so-called standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data).
If you do not wish us to use the abovenamed analytics tools to collect and analyze information about your visit to our websites, you may permanently object to the practice (opt out) at any time.
We will comply with your rejection by placing an opt-out cookie in your browser. This cookie will only indicate that you have opted out. Please note that, for technical reasons, an opt-out cookie affects only the browser in which it has been installed. If you delete the cookie or use a different browser or device, you will need to opt out again.
Below you will find information about the providers of the analytics tools and the respective opt-out procedures:
- Google Analytics from Google Inc. (“Google”):
Google is certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. You can prevent your information from being transferred as well as collected and processed by Google. Google provides information about this at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
- Adobe Analytics from Adobe Systems Inc. (“Adobe”)
Adobe is certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework.You can follow this link to opt out of analysis using Adobe Analytics: http://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/opt-out.html.
We may use so-called targeting, retargeting and cookie-less technologies in order to tailor our online marketing (e.g. banner ads) more specifically to your needs and interest such as Adobe Target, Google Search Ad, Google Display & Video 360, Salesforce Data Management Platform and others. These are monitored and used when you visit other websites that work together with the providers of these (re-)targeting technologies, so as to inform you while meeting your interests as closely as possible.
When the above technologies are used, cookies on our websites and (in the case of retargeting) on the websites of others register your interest in our products and services. In the process, random identifiers (so-called cookie IDs) are used which are not brought into connection with your name, your address or similar information, even if this information is known to us (e.g. from an existing contractual relationship), unless you have consented to this.
During the retargeting process, we may also collect information about your interest in the products and services of our retargeting partners. When these targeting and retargeting tools are used, some data may be transferred to servers located outside the EU and processed there. For legal reasons, the use of tracking and (re-) targeting technologies is sometimes only possible with your express consent – so called opt in. In other cases you can object to the use of such technologies if you wish – so called opt out.
We only use online marketing products with your express consent, which you can grant by clicking on the “Agree” button in the so-called Cookie Information Layer (“Opt-in”). We store this consent in a cookie on your device so that you are not asked for consent again each time you visit our websites, and for legal reasons, also on our servers with the IP address and a time stamp; we delete this information or restrict its processing if you withdraw your consent or 6 months at the latest after your last visit to our websites.
Should you change your mind at any time, you can withdraw your consent. To delete cookies set with your consent when visiting our websites after your consent to these online marketing products is withdrawn, please delete the cookies in your browser.
Surely, you have the right to opt-out of our use of your personal information to provide Marketing to you in any of the ways described. Therefore from time to time, we may ask you to refresh your marketing preferences by asking you to confirm that you consent to continue receiving marketing information from us.
