Google re-/marketing services “DoubleClick”

In accordance with our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) f of the GDPR), our website uses the “DoubleClick” marketing and remarketing services of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043 United States (“Google”). We use this service to position our offerings in the marketplace more effectively.

The information collected is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the United States. However, Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. This guarantees a level of protection comparable to European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

The purpose of DoubleClick is to enable us to display advertisements for and on our website more effectively so that we only present to you and other users advertisements that are potentially of interest to you. Remarketing means that, for example, we show advertising for a product in which you have expressed interest on another website. To this end, Google executes a code when you visit our website or other websites that also use DoubleClick. These remarketing tags are integrated in the website and are used to deposit an individual cookie or comparable technology on your device. These cookies can be set by different domains (e.g. doubleclick.net) and contain information on the websites that you have visited, the content you are interested in or the offering that you have clicked on. In addition, they hold technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, the time and date of visits as well as other data on the utilization of the offerings. If the user subsequently visits other websites, these websites can display advertising specifically tailored to him or her.

Your data is pseudonymized by Google to prevent it from being traced back to you. This does not apply if you have expressly permitted Google to process the data without pseudonymization.

Further information on the way that Google uses data for marketing purpose can be found at https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads. Google’s privacy statement can be found at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

Facebook custom audiences and Facebook marketing services

Our website uses the “Facebook Pixel”, which is owned by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or, if you are located in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd 4, Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). We similarly use this tool on the basis of our legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) f of the GDPR).
Facebook is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. This guarantees a level of protection comparable to European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
The Facebook Pixel enables Facebook, you and the other visitors to our website to be designated as a target group for advertisements (“Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use Facebook Pixel to reach out to customers more effectively on Facebook. This is because the Facebook ads that we use are only displayed to Facebook users who have previously shown an interest in our products and services or who have certain characteristics (e.g. an interest in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) (“custom audiences”). In this way, we seek to ensure that our Facebook ads are of interest to you rather than being a distraction. Finally, using the Facebook pixel allows us to track the effectiveness of our Facebook advertising for statistical and market research purposes as it allows us to see whether you were directed to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (“conversion”).
When you visit our website, the Facebook pixel is directly integrated and a cookie placed on your device. When you subsequently log onto Facebook or visit our Facebook page, this is noted in your Facebook profile. The data collected on you remains anonymous to us and cannot be traced back to you. However, it should be noted that this data is also stored and processed by Facebook and can be linked to your user profile. Facebook can use this information for its own market research and advertising purposes.
We also use the “advanced matching” feature. This involves the transmission of data such as users’ phone numbers, e-mail addresses, or Facebook IDs) to Facebook (encrypted) to create “custom audiences” or “look alike audiences”. Further information on advanced matching:
https://www.facebook.com/business/help/611774685654668).
The Facebook data usage policy applies to data processing by Facebook. It contains general information on the presentation of Facebook Ads: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. For more information about the Facebook Pixel and how it works, visit the help section of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.

To set the types of ads you see on Facebook, you can go to the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions for the usage-based advertising settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings apply across all platforms, i.e. for all devices such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

You can opt out of having your data collected by the Facebook Pixel to determine the ads that you are shown. You do this by clicking on the button below labeled “Deactivate Facebook pixel”. Clicking this button will place an opt-out cookie on your device. To delete the cookies already on your device, click on the link again. Please note that this opt-out only applies to the browser that you are currently using and only within this website.

We offer you newsletters via our mailing service Tripicchio AG, Engesserstr. 4 a, 79108 Freiburg, Germany.

This section describes the content of our newsletters as well as the registration, dispatch and statistical evaluation procedures and your rights of objection. By signing up for our newsletter, you agree to receive it and to accept the procedures described.

Content of the newsletter: We only send you newsletters, e-mail messages and other electronic notifications containing promotional information (“newsletters”) if you consent to them or if there is a legal basis for this. Our newsletters are aimed at various target groups, such as sales, business and press partners, investors or persons interested in our share, and provide information on news of the Company or (planned) investment products, for example.

Sign-up data: During the sign-up process, we ask you for your first and last name and your e-mail address. All other information is voluntary.

Double opt-in and logging: We use the double opt-in procedure for subscriptions to our newsletter. After you sign up for the newsletter, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your subscription. Only then will you receive our newsletter. This procedure is necessary so that we can be sure that you have actually requested the newsletter subscription. These subscriptions are logged so that we can document the sign-up process in accordance with the legal requirements. For this purpose, we record the time and date of subscription and confirmation for this purpose.
Statistical evaluation procedure: Our newsletters contain what is known as a “web-beacon”, i.e. a pixel-sized image file, which is retrieved from the server of the newsletter dispatcher when the newsletter is opened. In this connection, technical data such as your IP address are transferred. When newsletters are distributed, we use this data to determine, for example, the number of recipients the newsletter reaches, the opening and click rate, the devices on which the newsletter is downloaded and user involvement.

We use the dispatch service provider, collect and analyze statistical data and log the subscription procedure on the basis of our legitimate interests as defined in Article 6 (1) f of the GDPR. Our purpose in doing so is to offer a newsletter that is user-friendly and simultaneously secure and can also be operated efficiently by us.

Termination/cancellation: You can terminate the receipt of our newsletter at any time by using the unsubscribe option available in each newsletter. You will then no longer be contacted. In doing so, you also revoke your consent to receive the newsletter. The data collected for the purposes of sending you the newsletter will then be deleted.
