We use the online marketing process Google "Doubleclick" to place advertisements in the Google advertising network (e.g. in search results, in videos, on websites, etc.). Double Click is characterized by the fact that ads are displayed in real time based on the presumed interests of the users. This allows us to display advertisements for and within our online offer in a more targeted manner in order to only present users with advertisements that potentially correspond to their interests. If a user e.g. Ads for products are shown that he was interested in on other online offers, this is called "remarketing". For these purposes, when our and other websites on which the Google advertising network is active, a code is immediately executed by Google and so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also called " Web Beacons "called) integrated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie is created on the device, i.e. a small file is saved (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). This file records which websites the user has visited, which content he is interested in and which offers the user has clicked, as well as technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information on the use of the online offer.


The IP address of the user is also recorded, although it is shortened within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and only transferred in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. The aforementioned information can also be combined by Google with information from other sources. If the user then visits other websites, they can be shown advertisements tailored to them according to their presumed interests on the basis of their user profile.

The data of the users are processed pseudonymously within the framework of the Google advertising network. I.e. Google stores and processes e.g. not the name or e-mail address of the user, 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 expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymisation. The information collected about users by Google Marketing Services is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the USA.
