For our website, we use the Google Tag Manager of the company Google Inc. Provider is Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland). Via the Google Tag Manager, we can centrally incorporate and manage code sections of various tracking tools that we use on our website. The Tag Manager itself is a domain that does not set cookies or store data. It acts as a mere “manager” of the implemented tags. The data is collected by the individual tags of the various web analytics tools, such as Google Ads. Tags are small sections of code that, for example, record (track) your activity on our website. For this purpose, JavaScript code sections are inserted into the source code of our page. Such tags perform various tasks, such as collecting browser data, setting cookies or integrating buttons.

Depending on the analysis tool, various data about your web behavior is usually collected, stored and processed with the help of cookies. For this, please read our privacy texts on the individual analysis and tracking tools that we use on our website.

Please note that when using this tool, data from you may also be stored and processed outside the EU. If Google stores data, then this data is stored on Google’s own servers. The servers are distributed all over the world. Most of them are located in America. At you can read exactly where the Google servers are located.

How long the individual tracking tools store data from you can be found in our individual privacy texts for the individual tools.

From our side, there is a legitimate interest in analyzing the behavior of website visitors and thus to improve our offer technically and economically. With the help of Google Tag Managers, we can improve the economic efficiency. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO (Legitimate Interests).

b) Google Ads Conversion

Within the scope of Google Ads, we use the so-called conversion tracking. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. With Google’s conversion tracking tool, we record what happens after a user clicks on our Google Ads ad. We learn the total number of users who clicked on our ads and what actions you took. We do not receive any information that allows us to identify you personally. The cookie is deleted after 90 days. It can also be deleted manually by you using appropriate additional software. We use the information we receive to check the quality and success of our advertising measures.

We use Google Ads to draw attention to our offer on other websites as well. The goal is to ensure that our advertising campaigns reach only those people who are interested in our offers. With the conversion tracking tool we see which keywords, ads, ad groups and campaigns lead to the desired customer actions. We see how many customers interact with our ads on a device and then make a conversion. Through this data, we can calculate our cost-benefit factor, measure the success of individual advertising measures and consequently optimize our online marketing measures. We can also use the data obtained to make our website more interesting for you and adapt our advertising offer even more individually to your needs. On the basis of this cookie, it is then possible to determine whether you have also called up the “Contact” page after calling up our site, for example. a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser stores on the user’s computer.

Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked across Ads customers’ websites. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Customers will 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 any information with You can also prevent participation in conversion tracking by deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your Internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

Google itself uses cookies or comparable recognition technologies for identification purposes.

10. Marketing Automation Tool Mautic

We use the open source marketing tool Mautic on our website. Mautic is operated by us exclusively on servers in Germany. We only use the data internally and do not share it with third parties.

We use Mautic for e-mail marketing and campaigns. In so-called e-mail marketing, personalized e-mails are sent to you. These are based in part on your usage behavior on the website, when reading our e-mails and when interacting with the links contained therein. Furthermore, we also send e-mails as part of campaigns.

The software uses various technical procedures to assign individual activities to anonymous profiles or – with prior consent – to the profiles of individual users:

Tracking pixel

In order to recognize whether, for example, an e-mail has been opened, Mautic uses so-called tracking pixels. These are used to load a small graphic from the provider’s server, which has previously been assigned to an individual user profile.

Personalized Web Links

In order to recognize whether, for example, a user is accessing a link from an email, Mautic adds a unique identifier to these links, which has previously been assigned to an individual user profile.

IP address

The IP address currently used by website visitors is transmitted to us each time they visit our website. Mautic uses this to recognize users of the website.

The data collected in the process are:

  • the activity on our website

  • Number of page views and dwell time of the website visitor

  • the click path of the respective visitor

  • Downloads of files provided through the website

  • Landing page visits

  • Email opens from newsletters and campaigns

In the context of a registration or login on the website, the provider collects through the use of Mautic:

  • Contact information (such as name, postal or e-mail address, phone number).

  • Business contact information (such as your job title, the name of a business, business email address, telephone or fax number).

  • the IP address of the terminal from which the use of the website takes place

The released data is clearly recognizable for the user by filling out a form. Thereby, it is marked which data are necessary for sending the form.

Mautic will only be used if you have expressly given your consent to the use of so-called “first-party cookies” when using our website for the first time. You can revoke this consent at any time by contacting the person named by us above. In this case, all tracking data collected by means of Mautic will be deleted immediately.
