Among other things, Facebook enables users of the social network to create private profiles, upload photos, and network via friend requests.

If a data subject lives outside the USA or Canada, the controller for the processing of personal data is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Facebook component to download a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook.
A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE As part of this technical process, Facebook receives information about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes with each call-up to our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website, which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, such as the “Like” button, or if the data subject makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
Facebook always receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time as the time our website is accessed; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not.

8. USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS
On this website, the controller has integrated the Google Analytics component. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, collection, and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data about the website from which a data subject came to a website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed, or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is the
Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis.
As part of this technical process, Google receives knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.
By means of the cookie, personal information, such as the access time, the place from which access was made, and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject, are stored. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
If the information technology system of the data subject is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics.

9. USE OF GOOGLE ADWORDS
On this website, the controller has integrated Google AdWords. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in both Google’s search engine results and the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to define certain keywords in advance by means of which an ad is displayed in Google’s search engine results only if the user retrieves a keyword-relevant search result from the search engine. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed by means of an automatic algorithm and taking into account the previously defined keywords on topic-relevant websites.
The operating company of Google AdWords services is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertising on our website.
If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the data subject by Google. What cookies are have already been explained above? A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the data subject. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to track whether certain subpages, such as the shopping cart from an online shop system, have been accessed on our website. Through the conversion cookie, both we and Google can understand whether a data subject who came to our website via an AdWords ad generated sales, i.e. completed or canceled a purchase of goods.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other advertisers of Google AdWords receive information from Google by means of which the data subject could be identified.
By means of the conversion cookie, personal information, such as the websites visited by the data subject, is stored. Each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to the interest-based advertising by Google. For this purpose, the data subject must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers he or she uses and make the desired settings there.

This cookie records both your visit and the use of our website in an anonymous form. However, personal data will not be passed on. If you subsequently visit the website of a third party who in turn also uses Google’s advertising network, advertisements may appear that are related to our website or to our offers there.
To permanently deactivate this function, Google offers for the most common Internet browsers via
https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin a browser plugin.
