8) Online Marketing

8.1 Facebook pixels for creating custom audiences
Within our online offer the so-called “Facebook pixel” of the social network Facebook is used, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).
If a user clicks on an advertisement placed by us, which is played on Facebook, an addition is added to the URL of our linked page by Facebook Pixel. To the extent that our pixel page allows data to be shared with Facebook, this URL parameter is written to the user’s browser via a cookie that our linked page itself sets. This cookie is then read by Facebook Pixel and enables the data to be forwarded to Facebook.
With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is on the one hand able to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the presentation of ads (so-called “Facebook ads”). 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 offer 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 the users and do not appear to be annoying. This allows us to further evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by tracking whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion”).
The data collected is anonymous to us, so we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. 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 Guidelines (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 based on our predominantly legitimate interest in the evaluation, optimization and economic operation of our online offering and our advertising measures in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The information generated by Facebook is usually transferred to a Facebook server and stored there, this may also result in a transfer to the servers of Facebook Inc. in the USA. Facebook Inc. with headquarters in the USA is certified for the us European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.
In order to object to the collection by the Facebook pixel and the use of your data to display Facebook ads in general, you can set an opt-out cookie by clicking on the link below, which deactivates Facebook pixel tracking:

By using this service, our location will be displayed to you and any directions you may require will be made easier.

If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want your profile to be associated with Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google saves your data (even for users who are not logged in) as user profiles and evaluates them.
