The information generated by this about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. There is no adequacy decision of the EU Commission for the USA. The data transfer takes place, among other things, on the basis of standard contractual clauses as appropriate guarantees for the protection of personal data, viewable at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks (https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks) and https://business.safety.google/adsprocessorterms/.

Your data may be linked by Google to other data, such as your search history, your personal accounts, your usage data from other devices, and any other data Google may have about you.

Meta Platforms Ireland and we are jointly responsible for the collection of your data and the transmission of this data to Facebook when the service is integrated. This is based on an agreement between us and Meta Platforms Ireland on the joint processing of personal data, which defines the respective responsibilities. The agreement can be accessed at https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum (https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum). According to it, we are responsible in particular for complying with the information obligations under Articles 13, 14 of the GDPR, for complying with the security requirements of Article 32 of the GDPR with regard to the correct technical implementation and configuration of the Service, and for complying with the obligations under Articles 33, 34 of the GDPR to the extent that a personal data breach affects our obligations under the Joint Processing Agreement.

Use of Google Ads conversion tracking
We use the online advertising program "Google Ads" on our website and in this context conversion tracking (visit action evaluation). Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland).
When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is placed on your computer.

If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Thus, there is no way that cookies can be tracked across Ads customers' websites.
The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookie is used for the purpose of creating conversion statistics. Here, we learn the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified.
Your data may be transmitted to Google LLC servers in the USA. There is no EU Commission adequacy decision for the USA. The data transfer is based, among other things, on standard contractual clauses as appropriate safeguards for the protection of personal data, viewable at: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks (https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks) and https://business.safety.google/adscontrollerterms/ (https://business.safety.google/adscontrollerterms/).
