18. Data protection provisions on the application and use of Google remarketing
The data controller has integrated Google Remarketing services on this website. Google remarketing is a function of Google AdWords that enables a company to show advertisements to those Internet users who have previously been on the company’s website. The integration of Google Remarketing therefore allows a company to create user-related advertising and consequently to display interest-relevant advertisements to the Internet user.

Google Remarketing is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The purpose of Google remarketing is to display interest-related advertising. Google remarketing enables us to display advertisements via the Google advertising network or to display them on other websites that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of Internet users.

Google remarketing places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to recognize the visitor to our website if he subsequently calls up websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Every time you visit a website on which the Google Remarketing service has been integrated, the internet browser of the data subject automatically identifies with Google. As part of this technical process, Google gains knowledge of personal data, such as the user’s IP address or surfing behavior, which Google uses, among other things, to display interest-relevant advertising.

Cookies are used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the data subject. Each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to Google’s interest-based advertising. For this purpose, the data subject must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.

Google+ is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google+ button has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically triggered by the respective Google+ button, a representation of the corresponding Google+ Button from Google. As part of this technical process, Google gains knowledge of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject. More detailed information about Google+ is available at https://developers.google.com/+/.

If the data subject is logged into Google+ at the same time, Google recognizes each time our website is accessed by the data subject and for the entire duration of their stay on our website, which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected by the Google+ button and assigned by Google to the respective Google+ account of the person concerned.

If the person concerned clicks one of the Google+ buttons integrated on our website and thereby makes a Google + 1 recommendation, Google assigns this information to the personal Google+ user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data. Google stores the data subject’s Google +1 recommendation and makes it publicly available in accordance with the conditions accepted by the data subject. A Google + 1 recommendation made by the data subject on this website will subsequently be used together with other personal data, such as the name of the Google +1 account used by the data subject and the photo stored in this data in other Google services. for example the search engine results of the Google search engine, stored and processed in the Google account of the person concerned or in other places, for example on websites or in connection with advertisements. Google is also able to link the visit to this website with other personal data stored by Google. Google also records this personal information for the purpose of improving or optimizing the various Google services.

The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to generate visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are used by us in turn to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future . Neither our company nor any other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could be used to identify the data subject.

The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the data subject. Each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to Google’s interest-based advertising. For this purpose, the data subject must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.
