The cookie is used to store information that is related to the specific device used. However, this does not mean that we are immediately aware of your identity.
In addition, to improve usability, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your device for a specified period of time. If you visit our site again to take advantage of our services, it will automatically recognize that you have already been with us and what inputs and settings you have made, so you do not have to re-enter them.
Insofar as the aforementioned cookies are personal data, they are used on the basis of our legitimate interests.

We use the services of Brandwatch GmbH (Gutenbergstrasse 77A, 70197 Stuttgart). This is a social media monitoring tool that helps us to identify and monitor content on third-party sites (e.g., posts, tweets, blogs, news, forum posts, and social media platforms). This gives us a detailed insight into customer opinions and any topics on the Internet that mentions our company name(s) or talks about our brand(s). In doing so, so-called "crawlers" search available online sources to seek out the relevant hits. Brandwatch searches both publicly available data on the Internet and closed-loop third-party networks with which they have directly concluded contracts in order to access their data.
The data Brandwatch collects varies depending on the source of the data. The following personal data may be collected:
- your name, username, nickname or other identifier;
- the contents of data you have posted using that name, username, nickname, or other identifier, including comments, phrases, opinions, posts, etc.;
- your profile picture;
- your job title or industry;
- your interests;
- Your location;
- your gender and
- any other information that you post on any Internet site or on any third party platform that provides Brandwatch with data.
Our legitimate interests in the use of Brandwatch are for the purposes of market and opinion research and for marketing and PR purposes. Data processing is external and separate from our corporate web and social media sites, so we are not responsible for any data processing by Brandwatch.
If you object to the use of your information by Brandwatch, or require information about the data stored by them, or if you wish to exercise any other right that you are entitled to, please contact Brandwatch at email@example.com. For more information on privacy at Brandwatch, please click here.
We use the services of Falcon.io ApS (H.C. Andersens boulevard 27, 1st floor, 1553 Copenhagen V, Denmark). This is a social media management tool that allows us to consistently manage our social media profiles and activities. Each user interaction with us is automatically and individually tracked so we can respond to customer requests quickly and efficiently. In addition, we can see whether our companies or our products are mentioned on the social media platforms we use, and then directly contact those users or provide them with content. This gives us a detailed insight into customer opinions. Furthermore, the tool also allows us to create our own campaign pages and to show personalized and interest-based advertising, as well as to measure the results of these.
Our use of Falcon.io is further to our legitimate interests in the purposes mentioned above. Data processing is external and separate from our corporate website and social media site, so we are not responsible for any data processing by Falcon.io.

The tracking measures listed below and used by us are based on our legitimate interests. With the tracking measures used, we seek to ensure a tailored design, and the continuous optimization of our website. We also use the tracking tools to statistically record the use of our website and evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing the content we show you.
a) Google Analytics
For the purpose of customizing and continually optimizing our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, hereinafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymised usage profiles are created and cookies (see paragraph 4) are used. Information is generated by the cookie about your use of the website such as:
- browser type / version,
- used operating system,
- Referrer URL (the previously visited page),
- host name of the accessing terminal (IP address),
- time of server request,
and are transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage for the purposes of market research and tailor our website design. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with any other data provided by Google. The IP addresses are anonymized, so that such a merger is not possible (IP masking). Google complies with the US-EU and US-Swiss Privacy Shield Agreements and is registered with the US Department of Commerce's Privacy Shield Programs.
You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we must point out that in this case not all features of our website may be fully functional.
In addition, you may prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on.
As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be set that will prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid on that browser and only for our website, and is stored on your device. If you delete cookies in that browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
For more information about privacy related to Google Analytics, see the Google Analytics Help Center.
b) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
In order to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our content, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. In doing so, Google Adwords will set a cookie (see section 4) on your device if you have reached our website via a Google ad.
These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If a user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer's website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user previously clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page.
Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. The information gathered using the cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers are notified of the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.
The targeting measures listed below and used by us are based on our legitimate interests (hereafter for letters a)a)a)b) and a)c)), respectively based on your express prior consent (hereafter for letter a)d)). Through the targeting measures we use, we want to make sure that only advertising that meets your actual or inferred interests is displayed on your devices.
a) Google Adwords Remarketing
We must point out, however, that you may not be able to use all the features of the Website if you do so. By using this Website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above. For more information about Google's terms, click here.
b) Double Click
On our website, information for the optimization of advertising impressions is collected and evaluated using cookies (see section 4). For this purpose, we use Google Inc. targeting technologies (Double Click, Double Click Exchange Buyer, Double Click Bid Manager). These technologies enable us to target you with individual interest-based advertising. The cookies used, for example, provide information about which of our products you are interested in. On the basis of the information, we can also show you third-party content that is specifically geared to your interests, as they result from your previous user behavior. The collection and evaluation of your user behavior is anonymous and does not enable us to personally identify you. In particular, this information will not be merged with personally identifiable information about you.
The cookie will be automatically deleted after 30 days.
You can also set preferences for showing interest-based advertising through the Google Ads Settings Manager.
c) Facebook Retargeting / Remarketing
Our pages include remarketing tags from the Facebook social network, 1601 South California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). When you visit our pages, the remarketing tags make a direct link between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook receives the information that you have visited our site along with your IP address. As a result, Facebook can link your visit to our pages to your user account. We can then use this information for the display of Facebook Ads. Facebook complies with the US-EU and US-Swiss Privacy Shield Agreements and is registered with the US Department of Commerce's Privacy Shield Programs.
We must point out that as the provider of the pages we are not aware of the content of the data transmitted to, and their use by, Facebook.
For more information, see the Facebook privacy statement.
d) Facebook Custom Audiences and Lookalike Audiences
In addition, to the extent you have provided express prior consent, we also use Facebook Custom Audiences and Facebook Lookalike Audiences. These are marketing services from Facebook. These allow us to display personalized and interest-based advertising on Facebook for certain groups of visitors to our website who also use Facebook.
Facebook Custom Audience and Facebook Lookalike Audiences pixels are integrated into our website. This is Java Script code that stores personally identifiable information about your use of the Website. These include your IP address, the browser you are using, and the source and destination pages. This information is transmitted to Facebook servers in the United States. There is an automatic check to see if you have saved a Facebook cookie. The Facebook cookie automatically determines whether you belong to the relevant target group for us. If you belong to the target group, we will show you relevant ads on Facebook. In this process, we are not personally identifying you by matching this data with data we hold. Facebook complies with the US-EU and US-Swiss Privacy Shield Agreements and is registered with the US Department of Commerce's Privacy Shield Programs.
You may object to the use of the Custom Audiences and Lookalike Audiences services at any time by e-mail to email@example.com.
