We use the online marketing process Google "AdWords" to place ads on the Google advertising network (e.g., in search results, in videos, on Web pages, etc.) so that they are displayed to users who have a suspected interest in the ads. This allows us to selectively display ads for and within our online offering to show users only ads that potentially correspond to their interests. For example, if a user displays ads for products for which he or she is interested, in other online offers, this is referred to as "remarketing". For these purposes, upon access of our website and other Websites where the Google advertising network is active, Google will immediately execute a Google code which will become the so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as " Web beacons ") incorporated into the website. With the help of the device, an individual cookie is stored for the user, i.e. a small file (instead of cookies, comparable technologies can also be used). This file is used to identify which Web pages the user is interested in, for which content he or she has clicked and what offers the user has selected, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring Web pages, visiting time and other Information on the use of the online offer.

We also receive an individual "conversion cookie". The information obtained using the cookie is used by Google to create conversion statistics for us.

However, we do not receive any information that personally identifies users.

The user's data is processed under the Google advertising network pseudonym. i.e. Google does not store and process the name or e-mail address of the users but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. i.e. from Google's point of view, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie holder, regardless of who this cookie holder is. This does not apply if a user has explicitly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected about users is sent to Google and stored on Google's servers in the United States.
