12.2. We further process your data in accordance with legal requirements based on our legitimate interests. These processing purposes include statistical analyzes that serve on the one hand to optimize our online service and on the other to fulfill our own business purposes. In this context, we may create so-called User Profiles (hereinafter “Profiles”) based on recorded data (e.g. addresses, profile descriptions, profile access, assigned jobs, bid and request profiles). To protect your interests, we process your data for the above-mentioned purposes using pseudonyms wherever possible, i.e. profiles are recorded without any means of identification, such as names or email addresses. Only if it is necessary that the Profile can be attributed to the User, for example in order to display user information based on his behavior, do we establish a connection between the Profile and a specific User. If it is not necessary that the Profile can be attributed to the User (for example, if we are only interested in statistics), user details are processed anonymously, ie profiles and analysis results cannot be assigned to individual users, thus identifying them.

18.3. Subscription for our newsletter includes the so-called double application procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an email asking for confirmation of registration. This confirmation is needed to prevent people from registering with another person's email address. Newsletter registrations are recorded so that evidence of the registration process can be prepared in accordance with legal requirements. This includes recording the time of registration and confirmation of that IP address. Changes to your data recorded by the shipping service provider are also recorded.

18.4. We use the following service providers to send our newsletters based on our legitimate interests in a cost-effective, user-friendly and secure manner in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f. GDPR.

When it is accessed, technical information is recorded, for example about your browser and system, your IP address and the time it is accessed. This information is used to technically improve services based on technical data or target groups and their reading behavior, where they are accessed (determined by IP addresses) or when they are accessed. The recorded statistics also include details on whether the newsletters are open, when they are open and which links are clicked on. Although this information may be attributed to certain newsletter recipients for technical reasons, neither We nor the shipping provider endeavor to monitor individual users. Instead, analytics allow us to identify our users ’reading habits and customize our content accordingly or submit different content based on our users’ interests.

22.2. If we ask the user for consent (especially in the context of the so-called “cookie inscription”), the legal basis of this processing is Art. 6. paragraph 1. a. GDPR. Otherwise, the User's personal data will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic functioning of our online offer in terms of Article 6, paragraph 1 f) of the GDPR.

22.3. Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of assessing the use of our website by users, compiling reports on activities on the website and providing other services related to the use of the website and the use of the Internet. This process may involve creating pseudonymized user use profiles from the processed data.

22.4. We use Google Analytics to serve ads placed by Google and its affiliates as part of our advertising services only to those users who have shown interest in our online offerings or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined by the websites visited). ) that we transmit to Google (so-called remarketing audience or Google Analytics). With the help of a remarketing audience, we’d also like to ensure that our ads are in line with potential user interest and that they don’t interfere.

22.5. We use Google Analytics only with IP anonymization enabled. This means that Google shortens the IP address of users within the Member States of the European Union and other countries that are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the US and truncated there.

22.6. The IP address transmitted by the User's browser is not associated with any other data held by Google. Users can prevent cookies from being installed on their computer by adjusting their browser settings accordingly. Users may also prevent Google from collecting data generated by cookies in connection with their use of the Website and may prevent Google from processing this information by downloading and installing a browser add-on from the following link:

22.7. Additional information about Google's use of the data, your preferences and opt-out options can be found on the Google Web site: ('How Google uses data from sites or applications that use our services '), (' Use of data for advertising purposes '), (' Manage the information that Google uses to show you advertising ').

22.8. Personal data will be anonymous or deleted after a period of 14 months.

23. Google Conversion and Advertising Services

23.1. We use Google's conversion and advertising services, display, marketing and remarketing services (hereinafter referred to as “Google Marketing Services“) provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”).

23.2. If we ask the user for consent (especially in the context of the so-called “cookie inscription”), the legal basis of this processing is Art. 6. paragraph 1. a. GDPR. Otherwise, the User's personal data will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic functioning of our online offer in terms of Article 6, paragraph 1 f) of the GDPR.

23.3. Google Marketing Services allow us to display ads for and on our website in a more targeted way, helping us to show ads only to users who may be interested in them. The method we use, known as remarketing, involves, for example, showing users ads for products they have already shown interest in on other sites. To this end, our websites - and other websites where Google Marketing Services are active - contain a snippet of code that Google executes directly. This integrates so-called (re) marketing tags on the site (invisible image files or code, also known as web beacons). With the help of these tags, an individual cookie, ie a small file, is saved on the User's device (comparable technologies can be used instead). These cookies can be set from several different domains, including,,,, and This file records which websites the user visits, which content the user is interested in, and which offers the user clicks on, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, reference websites, duration of visits, and other information about website usage. The user's IP address is also recorded, although we would like to clarify that in the context of Google Analytics the IP address is abbreviated in the Member States of the European Union and in other countries that are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to the US Google server and truncated there. The IP address does not merge with user data in other Google offers or services. The above data may also be linked to comparable information from other sources. If the User subsequently visits other websites, he may be shown ads tailored to his interests.

23.4. User data is processed in a pseudonymous manner in the context of Google Marketing Services, ie Google does not store or process details such as the name or email address of the User, but processes relevant data within pseudonymous usage profiles based on cookies. This means that from Google's perspective, the ads are not managed or displayed to a named or otherwise identified person, but to the owner of the cookie and without it, regardless of who the cookie holder is. This is not the case, however, if the user has explicitly given Google permission to process their data in a non-pseudonymized manner. The information that users collect through Google Marketing Services is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the United States.

23.5. One of the Google marketing services we use is the Google AdWords online advertising service. In the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords client receives a different “conversion cookie.” Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked on AdWords customer sites. The data collected by conversion cookies is used to provide aggregate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. AdWords customers were informed of the total number of users who clicked on the ad and were redirected to a page labeled conversion tracking. However, they do not receive any information that would allow them to personally identify users.

23.6. Our websites may contain third-party advertisements from Google's DoubleClick marketing service. DoubleClick uses cookies that allow Google and its partner sites to display ads based on user visits to this website and / or other sites on the Internet.

23.7. We use the Google Optimize service, which allows us to monitor the effects of various changes on the website (eg changes in input fields, design, etc.) as part of the so-called “A / B tests”.

23.8. Google Bookmark Manager can be used to enable and manage Google's analysis and marketing services on our website. Google Tag Manager is a solution with which we can manage so-called website tags (and thus integrate Google Analytics and other Google marketing services into our online services). The Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) does not process any personal user data. With respect to the processing of users' personal information, reference is made to the Google services information contained in this Privacy Policy.

23.9. Google may process data for up to two years before it is anonymous or deleted.

23.10. Further information on Google's use of the data for marketing purposes can be found on the overview page: Google's privacy statement can be accessed at If you wish to object to interest-based advertising by Google's marketing services, you can use the setup and opt-out options provided by Google:

24. Facebook social plugins

24.1. Our internet service uses social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network, operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., Square 4 Grand Canal, Port of Grand Canal, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).

24.2. If we ask the user for consent (especially in the context of the so-called “cookie inscription”), the legal basis of this processing is Art. 6. paragraph 1. a. GDPR. Otherwise, the User's personal data will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic functioning of our online offer in terms of Article 6, paragraph 1 f) of the GDPR.

24.3. When the User accesses the function of this network service that contains such an add-on, his device establishes a direct connection with Facebook's servers. Facebook sends the content of the plugin directly to the user's device and the device integrates it into the Internet service. Usage profiles can be generated in relation to Users based on the processed data. Therefore, we have no control over the amount of data that Facebook has collected with the help of this plugin and therefore we inform users based on what we know.

24.4. When add-ons are installed, Facebook is notified when the User browses the relevant page of the network service. If the User is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can visit to visit their Facebook account. If users interact with add-ons, for example by clicking the ‘Like’ button or adding comments, their device sends the relevant data directly to Facebook and Facebook records it. If the User is not a member of Facebook, Facebook may nevertheless determine and report its IP address. According to Facebook, only anonymized IP addresses are recorded in Germany.

24.5. Users can find out about the purpose and scope of data collection on Facebook and their further processing and use, as well as the appropriate rights and settings to protect their privacy in the Facebook data privacy notice:

24.6. If the User is a member of Facebook and does not want Facebook to collect data about him through this online service or combine such data with membership data on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook before using our online service and must delete his cookies. Other settings can be selected and consent to the use of the data for advertising purposes can be revoked in the Facebook profile settings at or via the US website http: //www.aboutads. information / elections / or the EU website The settings are platform-independent, ie they apply to all devices such as desktops and mobile devices.

25. Facebook remarketing, Facebook-Pixel and custom audience

25.1. Our internet service uses the so-called Facebook Pixel which belongs to the social network Facebook, run by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you reside in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., Grand Canal Square 4, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). Facebook Pixel allows Facebook to identify visitors to our online service as a target group for the presentation of so-called Facebook ads. Accordingly, we use the Facebook Pixel to present Facebook ads that we have placed only to those Facebook users who have expressed an interest in our online service (the so-called “Custom Audience”). In other words, with the help of Facebook Pixel, we want to ensure that our Facebook ads are in line with the possible interests of users, rather than being viewed as a nuisance. In addition, Facebook Pixel allows us to understand the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes, allowing us to see if users are taken to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad.

25.2. If we ask the user for consent (especially in the context of the so-called “cookie label”), the legal basis for this processing is Art. 6. paragraph 1. a. GDPR. Otherwise, the User's personal data will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic functioning of our online offer in terms of Article 6, paragraph 1 f) of the GDPR.

25.3. Facebook Pixel Facebook is turned on immediately after browsing one of our websites and can store a cookie, ie a small file, on your device. If you subsequently log in to Facebook or visit the page when you are already logged in to Facebook, your visit to our online service is recorded in your profile. The information collected about you is anonymous to us and therefore we cannot draw conclusions regarding the identity of the user. However, Facebook records and processes the data and can therefore link it to the appropriate user profile. Facebook uses the data in accordance with its data policy. Accordingly, further information on how the remarketing pixel works and on the presentation of Facebook ads in general can be found in Facebook’s data policy:

25.4. Based on the User's consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) of the GDPR, we use the 'Custom Audience from File' procedure provided by the social network Facebook, Inc. In this case the consent email addresses of the Users are transferred to Facebook. The transfer process is encrypted. The upload is for the sole purpose of determining the recipients of our Facebook ads. This ensures that ads are shown only to users who are interested in our information and services.

25.5. You can revoke your consent and object to the collection of data via Facebook Pixel, as well as the creation of a customized audience and the use of this data for the presentation of Facebook ads. You can access a page created by Facebook to do so, at, following the instructions there regarding usage-based advertising settings, or you can revoke your consent via the American Web website or the EU website The settings are platform-independent, ie they apply to all devices such as desktops and mobile devices.

26. LinkedIn marketing services

26.1. We use the marketing services of the social network LinkedIn. The provider is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

26.2. LinkedIn's marketing services allow us to display advertisements on the LinkedIn social network and to target advertiser services or to display advertisements only to users who may be of interest to them. For example, if a user is shown ads on other Internet services for products that interest them, this is called ‘remarketing’. Furthermore, we can track the success of our ads (so-called 'Conversion Measurement'). However, we only know the anonymous total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to the conversion tracking tag page. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies users.

26.3. For the above purposes, LinkedIn code will be implemented when users access our and other sites where LinkedIn's marketing services are active and so-called “insights“ (invisible graphics or codes, also called “web beacons“) bit will be embedded in websites. With the help of insight tags, an individual cookie, ie a small file, will be stored on the user's device (comparable technologies can be used instead of cookies). This file records which websites the user visits, what content they are interested in and which offer the user clicks on, further technical information about the browser and operating system, web pages with references, time of visits and further information on using the Internet service.

26.4. User data will be processed pseudonymically within the LinkedIn marketing services. That is. LinkedIn does not store or process a user's name or email address, but processes relevant data in a manner associated with cookies within pseudonymous user profiles. This means that from a LinkedIn point of view, ads are not managed or displayed for a specific person, but for the owner of the cookie, regardless of who the owner of the cookie is. This does not apply if the user has explicitly allowed LinkedIn to process the data without this pseudonymization. If you are registered with LinkedIn, LinkedIn may still link your interaction with our online services to your account.

26.5. If we ask the user for consent (especially in the context of the so-called "cookie label"), the legal basis for this processing is Art. 6. paragraph 1. a. GDPR. Otherwise, the User's personal data will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic functioning of our online offer in terms of Article 6, paragraph 1 f) of the GDPR.

26.6. Collected user data is transmitted to LinkedIn and stored on Google's servers in the United States.

26.7. For more information on the use of data in LinkedIn, see LinkedIn's Privacy Policy ( and Cookie Policy ( legal / cookie_policy). You may object to the above-mentioned use of your data by LinkedIn:
