According to this, "personal data" is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Information about your usage behavior on this website can also be personal data if it is possible to draw conclusions about your person from this information.

The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user or if the processing is permitted by legal regulations.

3. Legal basis for processing personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter a) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data required to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the first interest, Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

4. Data Deletion and Data Storage
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage can also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject.

1. Description and scope of data processing
We use the Google Ads service. Google Ads is an online advertising program from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google").

Google Ads allows us to combine our ads with specific search terms. These ads can be displayed when entering search queries on websites of the Google advertising network. We also use ads remarketing lists for search ads. This allows us to customize search ad campaigns for users who have previously visited our site. The Services allow us to combine our ads with specific search terms or to serve ads to previous visitors, such as those promoting services that visitors viewed on our website. When you click on an ad or visit our website, Google places a cookie on the user's computer. This information is used in order to be able to specifically address the visitor in a later search query. For this purpose, a so-called "DoubleClick" cookie is usually sent to the browser when a user calls up a page with DoubleClick ads. Information on the DoubleClick cookie technology used can be found here. Further information can also be found in Google's notes on website statistics and in the data protection regulations.

With the help of this technology, Google and we as a customer receive information that a user has clicked on an ad and was forwarded to our website in order to contact us via the contact form. The information obtained in this way is used exclusively for statistical evaluation for advertising optimization. We do not receive any information that personally identifies visitors. The statistics provided to us by Google include the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and, if applicable, whether they were redirected to a page on our website that had a conversion tag. Based on these statistics, we can understand which search terms caused our ad to be clicked on particularly often and which ads led to contact being made via the contact form for ordering brochures.
