We use the Friendly Captcha tool on our website. This is offered by Friendly Captcha GmbH, Am Anger 3-5, 82237 Woerthsee, Germany.

The tool is used to prevent automated and abusive requests by so-called "bots".

Friendly Captcha processes and stores the following data in the above-mentioned process:

  • Anonymized IP address of the requesting computer
  • Information about the browser and operating system used
  • Anonymized counter per IP address to control the cryptographic tasks
  • Website from which the access took place (so-called referrer URL)
  • The data is used to protect against bots.

The legal basis for the processing is the legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR to prevent abusive access or spam attacks by bots.

  1. Retargeting/remarketing and conversion tracking

11.1 Facebook pixel for the creation of custom audiences

Within our online offering, we use the "Facebook Pixel" service of the following provider: Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook")

If a user clicks on an advertisement placed by us on Facebook, a parameter is added to the URL of our linked page with the help of "Facebook Pixel". This URL parameter is then entered into the user's browser after redirection by a cookie that our linked page sets itself.

On the one hand, this enables Facebook to determine the visitors to our online offering as a target group for the display of ads (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the service to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called "custom audiences").

On the other hand, "Facebook Pixel" can be used to track whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad and what actions they take there (so-called "conversion tracking").

The data collected is anonymous for us, so it does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes.

All processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for reading information on the terminal device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the "cookie consent tool" provided on the website.

We have concluded an order processing contract with the provider, which ensures the protection of the data of our website visitors and prohibits unauthorized disclosure to third parties.

The information generated by Facebook is usually transmitted to a Facebook server and stored there; in this context, it may also be transmitted to Meta Platforms Inc. servers in the USA.

For data transfers to the USA, the provider has signed up to the EU-US Data Privacy Framework, which ensures compliance with the European level of data protection on the basis of an adequacy decision by the European Commission.
