Facebook pixel and formation of target groups (custom audiences)
With the aid of the Facebook pixel (or comparable functions to transmit event data or contact information by means of interfaces in apps), it is possible for Facebook firstly to determine the visitors to our online offering as a target group for the depiction of ads (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display Facebook ads placed by us only to those users on Facebook and within the services of the partners cooperating with Facebook (so-called “audience network” who have also shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain characteristics (e.g. Interest in certain topics or products that are visible based on the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “custom audiences”). With the aid of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and are not perceived as tiresome. With the aid of the Facebook pixel, we can also monitor the effectiveness of the Facebook promotional ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were forwarded to our website after clicking on a Facebook promotional ad (so-called “conversion measurement”);service provider: Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland; website:; data privacy statement:; standard contractual clauses (warranty data privacy level for processing in third countries): The "Facebook EU data transfer addendum" ( applies in the case of contract processing by Facebook as the basis of the processing of event data of EU citizens in the US and the inclusion in the "platform terms and conditions of usage of Facebook" ( with regard to the autonomous processing of event data of Facebook within the framework of the placement of ads;

Google Ads conversion measurement
We use the online advertising program "Google Ads" from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, to place ads in the Google advertising network so that they are displayed to users who are presumed to be interested in the ads. As part of Google Ads, we use what is known as conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. However, we ourselves only receive the total number of users who have clicked on an ad and no information that can be used to identify users.You can find more information about Google Ads and Google conversion tracking in Google's privacy policy:
