1.3 Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
When processing personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislature in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person is subject.

This means that after your registration we send an e-mail to the e-mail address you have specified, asking you to confirm that you would like to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 48 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. We also store your IP addresses as well as the time of registration and confirmation. The registration is logged on the basis of our legitimate interest in being able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to be able to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.

All data collected are pseudonymised and the IDs are not linked to your other personal data, preventing direct linkage to a particular individual.

§12 Use of Adwords Conversion
12.1 We make use of Google Adwords to bring attention to our product lines with the help of advertising materials (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. Based on the data from our advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. We are interested thereby in showing you advertisements that are of interest to you, make our website more pertinent to you, and to achieve a fair reckoning of advertising costs.
12.2 These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called "Ad Servers". For this purpose, we use Ad Server Cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the insertion of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. With this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (mark that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.
12.3 These cookies enable Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations, we establish which of the used advertising measures are most effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
12.4 Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool, and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: By integrating AdWords Conversion, Google receives information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website, or clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.
12.5 You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways:
a) adjusting your browser software accordingly; in particular the suppression of third party cookies means that you will not receive any ads from third party providers;
b) disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the site "https://www.googleadservices.com", in which case this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies;
c) deactivating the interest-based ads of providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulation campaign via the link https://www.aboutads.info/choices, in which case this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies;
d) permanent deactivation in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browser under the link https://ww.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that in this case functionality may be limited.
13.1 In addition to Adwords Conversion, we use the Google Remarketing application. This is a process we use if we would like to contact you again. This application allows our advertisements to appear when you continue to use the Internet after you visit our website. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, which are used by Google to record and evaluate your usage behaviour when visiting various websites. This is how Google can determine your previous visit to our website. According to Google's own statements, Google does not merge the data collected in the context of remarketing with your personal data, which may be stored by Google. According to Google, pseudonymisation is used for remarketing in particular.
