Wordfence protects our website from unwanted access or malicious cyberattacks. To do this, our website establishes a permanent connection to Wordfence’s servers so that Wordfence can check its databases against the accesses made to our website and block them if necessary. The use of Wordfence is based on Article 6 Para. 1 (f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its website against cyberattacks as effectively as possible. The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission. You can find details here: https://www.wordfence.com/help/general-data-protection-regulation/ .

We have concluded an order processing contract with Wordfence. This is a contract required by data protection law and ensures that Wordfence processes the personal data of our website visitors strictly in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

In exceptional cases, from which website users are usually not affected, Wordfence uses cookies. Below, we explain what each cookie does, which users the cookie is set for and how the cookie helps protect the site.

(1) wfwaf-authcookie- (Hash): This cookie is used by the Wordfence firewall to carry out a capability check on the current user before WordPress loads. It’s only set for users who can log into WordPress. The Wordfence firewall uses this cookie to recognise logged-in users and allow them increased access. Wordfence can also detect users who are not logged in and restrict their access to secure areas. The cookie informs the firewall what level of access a visitor has, so that the firewall can make informed decisions about who should be allowed and who should be blocked.

(2) wf_loginalerted_ (Hash): This cookie is used to notify the Wordfence administrator when an administrator logs in from a new device or location. This cookie is set for administrators only and is used to help site operators know if an admin has logged in from a new device or location.

(3) wfCBLBypass: Wordfence offers a site visitor the option of bypassing country blocking by accessing a hidden URL. This cookie can be used to track who can bypass country blocking. When a hidden URL defined by the site administrator is accessed, this cookie is used to check whether the user can access the site from a country restricted by country blocking. This is set for anyone who knows the URL that enables the default country blocking to be bypassed. This cookie is not set for anyone who does not know the hidden URL to bypass country blocking. This cookie gives site owners the ability to allow certain users of blocked countries even though their country has been blocked.

 

11. Web analysis by Google Analytics (Analysis cookies)

11.1. Scope of the processing of personal data

 
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to assess your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities for the website operators and to provide further services connected to the use of the website and the use of the internet. Google may potentially also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address to other data.

You can prevent the storage of the cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software; furthermore, you can prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en . However, we must point out that in this case, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.

IP anonymisation: We use the function “activation of the IP anonymisation” on this website. This means that your IP address is first shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA and thus anonymised. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

By consenting to the use of analysis cookies, at the same time you agree pursuant to Art. 49 Para. 1 Item a GDPR that your data may be processed in the USA. The ECJ does not confirm an appropriate data protection level for the USA that matches the EU standards (ECJ, C-311/18, Schrems II), especially since your data may be processed by the US authorities for monitoring purposes without any effective legal protection being available against such measures.

12. Remarketing (Marketing Cookies)

This website uses Google’s remarketing function. The function serves to present advertisements of interest to the website visitors within the Google advertising network. This technology enables us to display automatically created, target group-oriented advertisements after your visit to our website. The displays are based on the products and services that you clicked on during your last visit to our website. To this end, a so-called “cookie” is stored in the browser of the website visitor, which makes it possible to recognise the visitor when he calls up websites that belong to the Google advertising network. Cookies are small text files that are stored in your browser when you visit our website. Normally, Google stores information such as your web request, the IP address, the browser type, the browser language, the date and the time of your request. This information serves to associate the web browser with a specific computer.

You as the user have the option to deactivate the use of cookies by Google; you can do so by calling up the page to deactivate Google at https://www.google.com/ads/preferences .

Your IP address will be shortened before storage so that no personal reference is required.

14. LinkedIn Insight Conversion Tool

We use the LinkedIn Insight Conversion Tool of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, which allows us to obtain information about the use of our website and to provide you with advertising content on other websites that is tailored to your interests. For this purpose, a cookie with a validity of 120 days is set in your browser, which enables LinkedIn to recognize you when you visit a website.

16. Reddit Pixel (Conversion Tracking)

Purpose: Marketing
Recipient country: USA

On our website we use the Reddit Conversion Pixel, an analysis service of Reddit Inc., 520 Third Street, Suite 305, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA ("Reddit").

Within the scope of this service, data is transmitted to the USA or such transmission cannot be ruled out. We would like to point out that, in the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of data protection in the case of data transfer to the USA and that there are therefore various risks (such as possible access by US secret services).

For this tool, a so-called tracking pixel is integrated on our website. When you visit our pages, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Reddit server via this tracking pixel. Reddit thereby receives, among other things, the information from your browser that our page was called up from your end device. We would like to point out that we have no influence on the scope of the transmitted data and its further use by Reddit and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Reddit conversion pixels, Reddit receives the information that you have called up the corresponding web page of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Reddit service, Reddit can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Reddit or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will find out and store your IP address and other identifying features.

The processing of your data is based on your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. 

You can find more information on data protection and your settings options in this regard at https://www.redditinc.com/policies/privacy-policy

17. TikTok Pixel

On our website, we use the so-called TikTok pixel of the social network TikTok, which is operated by TikTok Technology Limited, 10 Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin, D02 T380, Ireland ("TikTok"). The parent company of TikTok is based in China.

ATTENTION: Within the scope of this service, data transfer to China takes place or cannot be ruled out.

With the help of the TikTok pixel, it is possible for TikTok, on the one hand, to determine you as a visitor to our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "TikTok ads"). Accordingly, we use the TikTok pixel to display the TikTok ads placed by us only to those TikTok users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to TikTok (so-called "Custom Audiences").

With the help of the TikTok pixel, we also want to ensure that our TikTok ads correspond to the potential interest of users and are not harassing. The TikTok pixel also allows us to track the effectiveness of the TikTok ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a TikTok ad (so-called "conversion").

The processing of the data by TikTok takes place within the framework of the data use policy at https://www.tiktok.com/legal/privacy-policy?lang=en of TikTok .

Specific information and details about the TikTok Pixel and how it works can be found in the TikTok help section at https://support.tiktok.com/en

The use of the TikTok pixel as well as the storage of "conversion cookies" is based on your consent according to Art. 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke this consent at any time.

For the processing of data for which TikTok acts as a data processor, we have concluded a data processing agreement with TikTok in which we oblige TikTok to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties.
