7. Social media, plugins and tools

7.1 YouTube plugin

Data processing

We have integrated YouTube videos into our online offering, which are stored on the YouTube platform and can be played directly from our website. YouTube is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter as ‘Google’). The videos are all embedded in the so-called ‘2-click-mode’, which means that no data about you as a user is being transferred to Google if you do not activate the video function. Before the video function’s activation, only a preview image loaded from our own web server is being displayed.

Data will only be transferred to Google if you activate such video functions. Once being activated, we have no influence on this data transfer. The data transfer is carried out regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account.

Purposes and legal basis

We use YouTube videos on our website to present those to you in an easy way.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR. You grant this consent by activating the video function. If activated, your personal data will be transferred to Google as described above.

In the course of the data transfer to Google, your personal data will be transferred to servers of Google, which might also be located in the USA. The USA is a country that does not have a level of data protection which is adequate to that of the EU. In particular, this means that personal data can be accessed by US authorities in a simplified manner and that there are only limited rights to such measures. If you activate the YouTube video function, you expressly consent to the transfer of data to Google and to the transfer of your personal data to servers located in the USA.

If you have given your consent, you have the right to revoke it at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

 

Further information

Further information on data processing, in particular on the legal basis and storage period by YouTube, can be found in the provider’s privacy policy (https://policies.google.com/privacy) and in the Privacy controls on the YouTube platform (https://www.youtube.com/intl/ALL_de/howyoutubeworks/user-settings/privacy/). There you will also find further information on your rights and setting options to protect your privacy.

Google may also process your personal information in the United States, a third country without an adequate level of data protection. In this respect, the updated standard contractual clauses by the European Commission shall apply that can be accessed under

https://business.safety.google/adsprocessorterms/sccs/eu-p2p-intra-group/

https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj?uri=CELEX:32021D0914&locale=de

7.2 Google Ads and Conversion Tracking

Data processing

The use of marketing cookies and tracking mechanisms enables us and our partners to show you interest-based offers based on an analysis of your usage behaviour.

We use the services of Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords) so that we can place advertisements on external websites for the purpose of drawing attention to attractive offers. Service provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, parent company: Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; Website: https://marketingplatform.google.com. Using the data gathered from these advertising campaigns, we are able to determine how effective individual advertisements are. We use this tool to show you advertisements that might interest you, to make our website more appealing to your specific interests, and to calculate our advertising costs in a fair manner.

Furthermore, we measure the conversion of the advertisement (“conversion tracking”). However, we only learn the anonymous total number of users who clicked on our advertisement and were redirected to a page marked with a so-called “conversion tracking tag”. However, we ourselves do not receive any information with which users can be identified.

These advertisements are delivered by Google via what are known as ad servers. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies that enable us to gauge success by means of a number of metrics, such as how often advertisements are displayed and how many times they are clicked by users. If you are linked to our website by a Google advertisement, Google Ads will save a cookie on your PC. These cookies will normally expire after 90 days and are not used to identify you personally. A cookie of this type will normally contain data for analysis such as the unique cookie ID, the number of ad impressions for each placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (a flag specifying that the user no longer wishes to be shown advertisements).

These cookies allow Google to recognise your Internet browser. If a user visits specific pages on the website of an Google Ads customer and the cookie saved on the user’s computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer are able to discern that the user has clicked on the advertisement and was linked to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Google Ads customer. It is therefore not possible to track cookies via the websites of Google Ads customers. We do not collect or process any personal data ourselves in the aforementioned advertisements. Rather, we simply receive statistical analyses of the data from Google. Based on these analyses, we are able to determine which of the advertisements placed are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising, nor in particular are we able to use this information to identify users.

 

Purposes and legal basis

The legal basis for processing your personal data as part of the „Google Ads and Conversion Tracking“ service is your declaration of consent in accordance with point (a) of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR. Your personal data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was processed or if you revoke your consent. As a general rule, the relevant cookies are deleted after 90 days.

 

Further information

Google may also process your personal information in the United States, a third country without an adequate level of data protection. In this respect, the updated standard contractual clauses by the European Commission shall apply that can be accessed under https://business.safety.google/adsprocessorterms/sccs/eu-p2p-intra-group/

https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj?uri=CELEX:32021D0914&locale=de

If the processing is restricted, we may still store the data, but may not use it further. We keep lists of people who have requested a restriction on the use of their personal data to ensure that the restriction is respected;
  • right to data portability: the right to require us to obtain your personal data in a structured, common and machine-readable format in order to transfer it to another controller without hindrance by us;
