9) Online Marketing

9.1 Facebook Pixel for the creation of Custom Audiences (with Cookie Consent Tool)
Within our online offer, the so-called "Facebook pixel" with activated automatic advanced matching of the social network Facebook is used, which is operated by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook").

If a user clicks on an ad placed by us that is played on Facebook, an addition is added to the URL of our linked page by Facebook Pixel. If our site allows data to be shared with Facebook via Pixel, this URL parameter is inscribed in the user's browser via a cookie that our linked site sets itself. This cookie is then read by Facebook Pixel and enables the data to be forwarded to Facebook.

With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook, on the one hand, to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads") and to process additional data, such as hashed e-mails, names, gender, city, state, postal code and date of birth or telephone number, provided that they have made this data available.

Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of users and do not have a harassing effect. This allows us to further evaluate the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by tracking whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion").

The data collected is anonymous for us, so it does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook data usage policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). The data may enable Facebook and its partners to place advertisements on and outside of Facebook.

The data processing associated with the use of the Facebook Pixel is only carried out with your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website.

9.2 Google Ads Conversion Tracking

We use the offer of Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. In this way, we pursue the aim of displaying advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of the advertising costs incurred.

The cookie for conversion tracking is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google Ads. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Google Ads customers' websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. The customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.

The use of Google Ads may also result in the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

Details on the processing triggered by Google Ads Conversion Tracking and Google's handling of data from websites can be found here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites

All processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for reading out information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website.

You can also permanently object to the setting of cookies by Google Ads conversion tracking by downloading and installing the Google browser plug-in available at the following link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin?hl=de

In order to address users whose data we have received in the context of business or business-like relationships in a more interest-oriented advertising manner, we use a customer matching function in the context of Google Ads. For this purpose, we transmit one or more files with aggregated customer data (primarily mail addresses and telephone numbers) electronically to Google. Google does not gain access to any clear data, but automatically encrypts the information in the customer files during the transmission process using a special algorithm. The encrypted information can then only be used by Google to assign it to existing Google accounts that the data subjects have set up. This enables personalized advertising to be played via all Google services linked to the respective Google account.

We have also set up Enhanced Conversions. Enhanced Conversions is a feature that improves the accuracy of conversion tracking, but protects user privacy by supplementing existing conversion tags with the hashed first-party conversion data from the website. Hashing the first-party data before sending it to Google Ads ensures privacy by converting personal information such as name and email address into a hashed string.

To optimize our website content and measure the success of advertising campaigns, we perform tracking via Google Analytics and Google Ads and thus track the behavior of our website visitors.

Of course, tracking only takes place if you have given your consent to this via the cookie banner.

In addition, we would like to point out that unless consent has been given for personal tracking, non-personal and cookie-free analysis takes place. The following data is processed in the process:

Function-related information (such as headers added passively by the browser):

  • Timestamp
  • user agent
  • Referral URL

Aggregate or non-personal data:

  • Indication of whether the current page or a previous page in the user's navigation history on the site contains ad click information in the URL (e.g., GCLID/DCLID)
  • Boolean information about consent status
  • Random number generated when the respective page is loaded

This allows us to track the flow of visitors to our website (but not individual usage patterns).

The transmission of customer data to Google will only take place if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. Further information on Google's data protection measures in relation to the customer matching function can be found here: https://support.google.com/google-ads/answer/6334160?hl=de&ref_topic=10550182

Google Marketing Platform

GMP uses cookies to serve ads that are relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads more than once. Via a cookie ID, Google records which ads are served in which browser and can thus prevent them from being displayed more than once. In addition, GMP can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions that are related to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees a GMP ad and later, using the same browser, calls up the advertiser's website and makes a purchase via this website. According to Google, GMP cookies do not contain any personal information.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our knowledge as follows: Through the integration of GMP, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider may obtain and store your IP address. In the context of the use of GMP, personal data may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

All processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for reading out information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp()", which ensures an anonymization of the IP address by shortening and excludes a direct personal reference. Through the extension, your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google LLC.server in the USA and shortened there.

On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. In this context, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google (Universal) Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Google Analytics also enables the creation of statistics with statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors on the basis of an evaluation of interest-based advertising and with the inclusion of third-party information via a special function, the so-called "demographic characteristics". This allows the definition and differentiation of user groups of the website for the purpose of targeting marketing measures. However, data records collected via the "demographic characteristics" cannot be assigned to a specific person.

Details on the processing triggered by Google Analytics and Google's handling of data from websites can be found here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites

All processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics cookies for the reading of information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. Without this consent, Google Analytics will not be used during your visit to the site.

You can revoke your given consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website.

The logins and device types of all page visitors who were logged into a Google account and executed a conversion are taken into account. The data shows, among other things, on which device you first clicked on an ad and on which device the associated conversion took place.

12.4 Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google") for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to Google's servers. This may also result in the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. In this way, Google obtains knowledge that our website was accessed via your IP address. The processing of personal data in the course of establishing a connection with the provider of the fonts is only carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website.

12.5 Algolia Search
We use the search engine of Algolia SAS, 55 Rue d'Amsterdam, 75008 Paris, France ("Algolia") on this website to provide a search and filter function via the search box in our web store and to improve the search results. For this purpose, Algolia collects and processes the following data:

  • IP address,
  • search query via the search function,
  • filter options selected, if applicable,
  • clicked search result,
  • automatically transmitted connection data.

For the search function, the search query is sent to Algolia and matched with our provided products to return matching search results. With the filter function, for example, the product category or other filters can be set, with the help of which the search results are narrowed down. To improve the search results, an anonymized analysis of the search queries and the clicked search results is carried out. For this purpose, no assignment to an IP address or a token takes place.

The IP address transmitted when using the search and filter function is anonymized after a short time and stored for 7 days. Search queries and results without assignment to an IP address or token are stored for 90 days.
If personal data is processed in this context, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in providing an error-tolerant search for articles and easier location of our products in the web store and thus in customer-friendly marketing of our offer.

Only if you give us your consent in this regard, we also use insights about your use of our search and filter function by means of the Analytics function to understand what you are interested in and to personalize search results accordingly for you and to suggest suitable products to you. For this purpose, in addition to the data mentioned above, viewed products and filters as well as other interactions such as clicks on autocomplete search results, adding products to the shopping cart or checkout/purchase completion to a user token are stored and evaluated to find out which product filters are particularly relevant for you and how you interact with our webshop. Algolia also uses so-called A/B tests, as part of which we evaluate the success of different design variants of the search and filter function and can adjust them accordingly. The personalized user profiles are kept for the last 90 days in each case. To enable the evaluation and personalization, Algolia sets a cookie with the User Token ("_ALGOLIA") with a lifetime of twelve months.

The legal basis for the storage of the cookie on the terminal device and the reading of data from it is your consent, which may be revoked at any time, pursuant to Section 25 (1) TTDSG and the legal basis for the associated processing of personal data is your consent, which may be revoked at any time, pursuant to Article 6 (1) sentence 1 a) GDPR.

13) Tools and miscellaneous

Cookie Consent Tool
This website uses a so-called "cookie consent tool" to obtain effective user consent for cookies and cookie-based applications that require consent. The "Cookie Consent Tool" is displayed to users in the form of an interactive user interface when they call up the page, on which consent for certain cookies and/or cookie-based applications can be given by ticking the appropriate box.

Further legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR. As the responsible party, we are subject to the legal obligation to make the use of technically unnecessary cookies dependent on the respective user consent.

You can find more information about the operator and the setting options of the cookie consent tool directly in the corresponding user interface on our website.
