Privacy statement

We are pleased that you are visiting this homepage and would like to thank you for your interest in the offered services. The trust you have placed in us is very important for us and commits us to handle your data carefully and protect them against misuse.

We want you to feel safe and comfortable when you visit our website. Therefore, we take the protection of your personal data and their confidential handling very seriously. Thus we act in accordance with applicable legislation concerning the protection of personal data and data security.

The use of the websites of the company CSB-System SE (in short: “CSB”) shall be possible in general without providing personal data. Provided that a data subject intends to use particular services of our company via our website, the processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject shall always comply with the General Data Protection Regulation and the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to CSB. With this privacy statement our company wishes to inform the public about the kind, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Moreover, data subjects shall be informed by this Privacy Statement about the rights given to them.

CSB, as the controller responsible for the processing, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to assure most effectively the protection of the processed personal data. Nevertheless, web-based data transfers might be subject to security holes, which means that absolute protection cannot be assured.

4. Cookies

The websites of CSB use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows accessed websites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies CSB can provide the users with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The user of a website that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user’s computer system.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies already set may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject disables the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it can happen that not all functions of our website can be used to the full extent.

5. Collection of general data and information (log files) when using the website

The website of CSB collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. These general data and information are stored in the server log files. The following data may be collected

(1)  The browser types and versions used,

(2)  The operating system used by the accessing system,

(3)  The website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers),

(4)  The sub-websites, which are driven via an accessing system on our website,

(5)  The date and time of access to the website,

(6)  An Internet protocol address (IP address),

(7)  The Internet service provider of the accessing system,

(8)  Data and information used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information CSB does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to

(1) deliver the content of our website correctly,

(2) optimize the content of our website, as well as carry out advertising and marketing campaigns,

(3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, as well as

(4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the case of a cyber attack.

Therefore, CSB analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

6. Registration on our website, use of contractual services and career portal

You may register in our website by providing personal data and use the services of CSB. The respective input mask used for the registration and in the framework of rendering the services determines the personal data transferred to us.

The personal data entered by the data subject shall be exclusively collected and stored for rendering the contractual services, for advertising and marketing campaigns, as well as for the internal use by the controller responsible for processing and internal purposes. We can initiate the disclosure to one or several processors who will also use the personal data exclusively for internal use to be assigned to us.

Furthermore, by registration in our website

(1)  the IP address of the data subject assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP)

(2)  the date, as well as

(3)  the time of registration is stored.

These data are stored on the basis that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and these data enable the investigation of committed crimes, if necessary. In this respect the storage of these data is necessary for protecting the controller responsible for the processing. As a general rule, these data shall not be disclosed to a third party, unless there is a legal obligation to do so or the disclosure is for prosecution purposes.

The registration of the data subject by the voluntary indication of personal data is for offering the data subject contents or services which may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of things. Registered users shall be free to amend personal data entered into with the registration or have these entirely deleted from our data stock at any time.

CSB shall use any personal data transmitted in the context of an application exclusively for processing the application for the job posting. The data will only be made available to the persons involved in the application process. All employees in charge of data processing are bound to keep the data confidential. The data will be deleted six months after conclusion of the application process, unless the applicant has agreed in written form that CSB can keep the data for a potential later contact.

At any time upon request we will inform every data subject about the personal data of the data subject that have been stored. Moreover, we will correct or delete personal data and applicant profiles upon request or information by the data subject, provided that legal retention obligation does not object.

7. Subscription of our newsletter

In our website users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company newsletter. The input mask used for this determines the personal data to be transferred to the controller responsible for processing when the newsletter is ordered. In the context of the registration process the consent of the user for processing the data is obtained and reference is made to this Privacy Statement.

CSB shall inform customers and business partners on a regular basis by means of a newsletter about company offers. As a general rule, data subjects can only receive the company newsletter if

(1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and

(2) the data subject registers for the newsletter dispatch.

Due to legal reasons a one-time confirmation mail will be sent to the data subject’s e-mail address entered for the newsletter dispatch by double opt-in process. This confirmation e-mail shall be for verification that the owner of the e-mail address, as data subject, has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.

Along with the registration to the newsletter we also store

(1)  the IP address of the data subject on the computer system used at the time of log-in, which were given by the Internet Service Provider (ISP), as well as 

(2)  the date and

(3)  time of registration.

The collection of these data is necessary to track the (potential) misuse of the data subject’s e-mail address at a later time and shall be for legal protection of the controller responsible for processing.

The personal data collected in line with the newsletter registration shall be used for sending our newsletter and to carry out advertising and marketing campaigns. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter can be informed by e-mail, provided that this is necessary for operating the newsletter service or a registration in this respect. This might be the case if the newsletter offer or technical conditions are changed.

The data subject may cancel the newsletter subscription at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data granted by the data subject for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. To revoke the consent a corresponding link is incorporated in every newsletter. Moreover, there is the possibility to unsubscribe from the newsletter directly in the website of the controller responsible for processing or inform the controller responsible for processing otherwise.

8. Blog

In the context of our blog registered users can enter comments or other posts. Here, your IP address will be stored for seven days. This is for our protection if anyone enters comments or posts of unlawful content (insults, illegal political propaganda, etc.)

The subsequent comments can be subscribed to by the users with their consent. Users will receive a confirmation e-mail to verify that they are the owner of the entered e-mail address. Users may unsubscribe to ongoing comment subscriptions at any time. The confirmation e-mail will contain information on revocation possibilities.

9. Contact possibilities via the website

Due to legal provisions the website of CSB contains information enabling quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us. This also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts us by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller responsible for processing are stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry or contacting the data subject, as well as for carrying out advertising or marketing campaigns.

10. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

We process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European directive and regulation legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller responsible for processing is subject to.

If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European directive and regulation legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with legal requirements.

11. Rights of the data subject

  • a)    Right to confirmation

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European directive and regulation legislator to obtain from the controller responsible for processing the confirmation whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed.

The CSB employee shall promptly ensure that the deletion request is complied with immediately.

Where CSB has made personal data public and our enterprise, as controller, is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) GDPR to delete the personal data, CSB, in consideration of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other data controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested the deletion by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. The CSB employee will arrange the necessary measures on a case-by-case basis.

The right to deletion shall not exist when processing is necessary

If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by CSB, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller responsible for processing. The CSB employee will arrange the restriction of processing.

  • f)    Right to data portability

Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European directive and regulation legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

If you object to processing, your personal data will no longer be processed by CSB, unless we are able to prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or the processing is for asserting, exercise or defense of legal claims.

If CSB processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to processing for direct advertising, CSB will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject shall have the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning him or her by CSB for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89(1) GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.

12. Data protection regulations as to the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

The controller responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) in this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the acquisition, collection and evaluation of data on the behavior of visitors of websites. A web analysis service collects data from which website the data subject has accessed a website (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used for optimizing a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of web marketing.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The controller responsible for processing uses the add-on “_gat._anonymizelp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this add-on the IP address of the connection to the Internet of the data subject is abbreviated by Google and anonymized, if our websites are accessed by a member state of the European Union or another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is the analysis of the flow of visitors of our website. Google uses inter alia the collected data and information to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us indicating the activities on our websites, and to render further services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics sets a cookie into the IT system of the data subject. The meaning of cookies was already explained above. Via cookies Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. Every single access to one of the individual pages of this website which is operated by the controller responsible for processing and into which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser in the IT-system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transfer data to Google for the purpose of an online analysis. In the context of this technical process Google will obtain knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address or the data subject which serve to enable Google to trace the origin of the visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission settlements.

By means of the cookie personal information, such as the time of access, the location from which the access was made and the access frequency of our website by the data subject will be stored. Every time our websites are accessed these personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject will be transferred to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. If need be, Google will disclose the personal data collected via the technical process to a third party.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent that Google sets a cookie in the IT system of the data subject. Moreover, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Moreover, the data subject shall be able to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics, related to the use of this website, as well the processing of these data by Google. For this the data subject must download and install a browser add-on via the link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data or information as to accesses of websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as an objection. If the IT-system of the data subject is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later stage, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics. Provided that the browser add-on has been disabled or deactivated by the data subject or another person to be assigned to his or her sphere of influence, the browser add-on may be reinstalled or reactivated.

Further information and the applicable data protection regulations of Google can be retrieved under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and

The current privacy information with regard to the “Share button”, as well as further relevant information in this context can be referred to under https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection 

17. Legal bases of processing

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR shall be the legal basis for processing for which we obtain the consent for a certain processing purpose. If the processing of personal data for the performance of a contract the data subject is party to, as for instance with processing operations required for the supply of goods or rendering another service or return service, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same shall be applicable for processing operations required for the performance of pre-contractual measures, for instance in the case of queries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as the compliance with tax duties, the processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. c. GDPR. In rare cases, processing of personal data may become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would for instance be the case if a visitor is injured in our company and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be forwarded to a physician, hospital or another third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. In the end the processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned legal grounds are based on this basis if the processing is necessary to protect a vital interest of our company or a third party, unless interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedom of the data subject prevail. We are entitled to such processing operations because they are explicitly mentioned by the European legislator. In this regard the latter’s opinion was that a legitimate interest could be assumed, if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

18. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing or personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest will be the performance of our business activities in favor of the welfare of our staff members and our shareholders.

19. Storage period of personal data

The criterion for the storage period of personal data shall be the respective legal retention period. Upon expiry of the period the respective data shall be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer necessary for the performance of the contract or contract initiation.

20. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; necessity for the conclusion of a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of a non-provision

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly prescribed by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may be a result of contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). From time to time it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data which subsequently must be processed by us. The data subject shall be obliged to provide personal data, if our company enters into a contract with him or her. The non-provision of personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject cannot be concluded. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject the latter must contact one of our staff members. Our staff member informs the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is prescribed by law or contract or necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide personal data and what consequences would have to be expected if personal data are not provided.

21. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company we waive automated decision-making or profiling.

The 2021 EU Standard Contractual Clauses and the UK SCC Addendum are available on the Citrix Trust Center at https://www.citrix.com/about/trust-center/agreements.html, and shall be between you and Citrix Systems, Inc., irrespective of your location. For such purposes, you will act as the data exporter on your behalf and on behalf of any of your entities, and Citrix will act as the data importer on its own behalf and/or on behalf of its affiliates. For purposes of Clause 7 of the 2021 EU Standard Contractual Clauses, any acceding entity shall enforce its rights through you.

7. Keyence (MERP)

KEYENCE DEUTSCHLAND GmbH (KD) is committed to respecting your privacy. The KD web site is structured so that, in general, you can visit KD on the web site without identifying or revealing yourself.

When you visit the KD web site, KD only collects the domain names, not the e-mail addresses, IP address, access status, referrers, etc. of the visitors that is technically necessary for KD to inform you of its website and to ensure its stability and security (based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR). 

This information is aggregated to measure the number of visitors, the time and length of your visit, the pages you look at on the KD website, etc. KD has implemented technical and organizational measures to ensure the protection of your personal data.

There are also several opportunities on the KD website, communications including phone, electronic means or others for you to provide KD with personal data about you and your interest, such as your name, mailing address and e-mail address. 

If you choose to share any personal data with KD, KD may store it and use it, by way of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, for follow up, marketing research and other marketing purposes, which may include sharing it with KEYENCE CORPORATION and other KEYENCE affiliated companies of other countries, some of which are outside the European Economic Area, with implementing security measures by way of standard contractual clauses.

8.  Analytics tools and tools provided by third parties

When you visit this website, your surfing behavior can be statistically evaluated. This is primarily accomplished by so-called analytics programs. Details on these analysis programs can be found in the following privacy statement.

Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries
We also use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are unsecure in terms of data protection legislation. When these tools are active, your personal data can be transmitted to and processed in such third countries. Please note that in these countries, a data protection level comparable to that in the EU cannot be guaranteed. For example, US companies are required to pass on personal data to security authorities without you, as the data subject, being able to take legal action against this. This means that it cannot be ruled out that US authorities (for example, intelligence agencies) process, evaluate, and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

 

9. Data collection on this website

This does not affect any legal storage requirements. Cookiebot is used to obtain the legally required consent to the use of cookies. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1) lit. c. GDPR.

 

10.  Analytics tools and advertisement

Google Tag Manager
We use Google Tag Manager, which is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Tag Manager is a tool that enables us to embed tracking and statistics tools as well as other technologies in our website. Google Tag Manager does not create any user profiles, does not save any cookies, and does not perform own analyses. Google Tag Manager is only used to manage and deploy the tools embedded with it. Google Tag Manager does, however, capture your IP address, which can also be transferred to the parent company of von Google in the US. The legal basis for the use of Google Tag Manager is Article 6(1) lit. f. GDPR. The website owner has a legitimate interest in a fast and simple integration and management of various tools on the website. Where a corresponding consent has been queried, processing is exclusively based on Article 6 (1) lit. a. GDPR and Section 25 (1) Federal Telecommunications-Telemedia Data Protection Act (“TTDSG”) in so far as the consent comprises the storage of cookies or the access to information on the user’s device (for example, device fingerprinting) under TTDSG. This consent can be revoked at any time.

 

11. Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the Google Analytics web analysis service, which is provided by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Analytics enables the website owner to analyze the behavior of website visitors. It supplies the website owner with various usage data, for example, pageviews, session duration, operating systems used, and user tracking. This data is combined in one user ID and allocated to the device of the website visitor.
Additionally, Google Analytics enables us, for example, to track your mouse and scroll movements and your clicks.

14. LinkedIn Insight Tag

This website uses the LinkedIn Insight Tag. This service is provided by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Data processing with LinkedIn Insight Tag
The LinkedIn Insight Tags supplies us with information on the visitors of our website. If a website visitor is registered with LinkedIn, we can analyze, for example, professional key data (such as the career stage, company size, country, location, industry, and job title) of our website visitors and optimize our site for the respective target groups. Furthermore, LinkedIn Insight Tags allow us to track whether visitors of our website make a purchase or perform other actions (conversion metrics). We can also measure conversions across devices (for example, from PC to tablet). LinkedIn Insight Tag additionally offers a retargeting function that enables us to display targeted advertisement outside our website to the visitors of our website, but – according to LinkedIn – without identifying the advertisement receiver. LinkedIn additionally registers so-called log files (URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser characteristics, and time of access). The IP addresses are truncated or, where they are used to reach LinkedIn members across devices, hashed (pseudonymized). The direct IDs of LinkedIn members are deleted by LinkedIn after seven days. The remaining pseudonymized data will be deleted within 180 days. We as the website owner cannot allocate the data collected by LinkedIn to specific individuals. LinkedIn will save the collected personal data of the website visitors on its servers in the USA and use it for own advertising activities. Details can be found in the privacy statement of LinkedIn on https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy#choices-oblig

Legal basis
Where a consent has been obtained, the use of the above service is exclusively based on Article 6 (1) lit. a. GDPR and Section 25 TTDSG. This consent can be revoked at any time.

Furthermore, LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in their account settings. To prevent the linking of data collected by LinkedIn on our website and your LinkedIn account, you need to sign out from your LinkedIn account before you visit our website.

Data processing agreement
We have entered into a data processing agreement (DPA) on the use of the above-mentioned service. This is an agreement required by data protection law, which ensures that this service processor processes the personal data of our website visitors only according to our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

 

15. Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Google uses specific cookies for Google Analytics. The information generated by the cookie on your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to and saved on a Google server in the USA. We use the stored information to evaluate your use of the website, to generate reports on website activities, and to provide other services related to the website use. Google will in no case associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

Please note that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIp()”. This function truncates IP addresses before transmitting them to a server in the USA. In this way, a direct personal reference in connection with the data stored is normally excluded. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transmitted to a server in the USA and truncated there.

We process the data we receive in line with our overriding interest in the optimal marketing of our online content in accordance with Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in showing you personalized advertisements and evaluating the use of our website.

You can object to the data collection at any time with effect for the future by using Google Analytics’ opt-out add-on for browsers on https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.  

In addition, please refer to the information on how Google uses data in the Google partner network on https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=en.

Further information on privacy is available on policies.google.com/privacy.

Personal data of users is deleted or anonymized automatically after 14 months. Data that has reached the end of its retention period is deleted automatically once per month.

 

16. Google Analytics Remarketing

Our website uses functions of Google Analytics Remarketing. The provider is Google. We use this function to activate personalized advertising based on your interests on third-party websites that are also part of Google’s advertising network.

To enable this advertising service, Google stores a cookie with a number sequence on your device through your internet browser while you visit our website. This cookie registers your visit and use of our website. If you subsequently access the website of a third party that also uses Google’s advertising network, advertisements may be displayed with references to our website and its content. According to statements from Google, the data collected in the context of Google Remarketing is not linked with your personal data that might have been stored by Google (for example, because you signed up for a Google service such as Gmail). According to Google, their Remarketing uses pseudonymization.

The legal basis for this is Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in evaluating the use of our website to be able to show you personalized advertisements, so we can ensure the efficient operation of our website.

On https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin, Google offers a plugin for the most common internet browsers to permanently deactivate this function.

With its so-called “Cross Device” marketing feature, Google may be able to track your

usage behavior across multiple devices so that personalized advertising based on your interests might be displayed although you switched to another device. However, this requires that you have a Google account and agreed to linking your browser histories with your Google account.

Google provides additional information about Google Remarketing on https://www.google.com/privacy/ads/.

Personal data of users is deleted or anonymized automatically after 24 months. Data that has reached the end of its retention period is deleted automatically once per month.

 

17. Google Ads Conversion Tracking

This website uses the Conversion Tracking feature of Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising system from Google. When you click on an ad published by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking will be stored on your device. The information collected by means of the Conversion cookie is the basis for creating conversion statistics for us as a Google Ads customer. For example, to capture sales volumes and other conversions that result from your clicking on an ad published by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and they do not contain personal data, so they are not used for personal identification.

The legal basis for this processing of data is Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR (legitimate interest). We have a legitimate interest in showing you personalized advertisements and in evaluating the use of our website.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by means of corresponding settings in your browser software. In this case, however, we point out that you may not be able to use the full range of functionality of this website. Additionally, you can deactivate the display of advertising based on your interests on Google as well as Google advertising based

on your interests in the web (within the Google display network) in your browser by choosing “Off” on http://www.google.de/settings/ads or by deactivating this feature on http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. For more information on relevant options and on data privacy at Google, please refer to https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/?fg=1.

 

18. LinkedIn
