Use of the remarketing or "similar target groups" function of Google Inc.
On our website, we use the remarketing or "similar target groups" function of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). This function serves the purpose of analyzing visitor behavior and visitor interests.
Google uses cookies to perform the analysis of website usage, which forms the basis for the creation of interest-based advertisements. The cookies are used to record visits to the website and anonymized data on website usage. No personal data of the website visitors is stored. If you subsequently visit another website in the Google Display Network, you will be shown advertisements that are highly likely to take into account previously accessed product and information areas.
Your data may also be transmitted to the USA. An adequacy decision of the European Commission is available for data transfers to the USA.
The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO for the legitimate interest of targeting visitors to the website with advertising by displaying personalized, interest-based advertising ads to visitors to the provider's website when they visit other websites in the Google Display Network.

The function displays videos deposited with YouTube in an iFrame on the website. The option "Extended data protection mode" is activated.

Duration of storage
After complete processing of the contract, the data will initially be stored for the duration of the warranty period, thereafter taking into account statutory, in particular tax and commercial law retention periods, and then deleted after expiry of the period, unless you have consented to further processing and use.

Right of objection
Insofar as we process personal data as explained above in order to protect our legitimate interests that prevail in the context of a balancing of interests, you may object to this processing with effect for the future. If the processing is carried out for direct marketing purposes, you can exercise this right at any time as described above. If the processing is carried out for other purposes, you will only have the right to object if there are grounds arising from your particular situation.

After exercising your right to object, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

This does not apply if the processing is for direct marketing purposes. Then we will not further process your personal data for this purpose.
