When you use Apple Pay on iPhone or Apple Watch to complete a purchase made through Safari on Mac, the Mac and the authorization device communicate over an encrypted channel on Apple's servers. Apple does not process or store any of this information in a format that personally identifies you. You can disable the ability to use Apple Pay on your Mac in your iPhone's settings.

Facebook Pixel for creating Custom Audiences (with Cookie Consent Tool)
Within our online offer, the so-called "Facebook Pixel" of the social network Facebook is used, which is operated by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook").
If a user clicks on an advertisement placed by us, which is played on Facebook, the URL of our linked page is added by Facebook Pixel. If our site allows data to be shared with Facebook via pixels, this URL parameter is written to the user's browser via a cookie, which our linked site sets itself. This cookie is then read by Facebook Pixel and enables the data to be forwarded to Facebook.
With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is on the one hand able to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook Ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to only display the Facebook ads we have placed 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, which are based on the visited website). websites are determined), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interests of users and are not annoying. This allows us to further evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by understanding whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion").
The data collected is anonymous to us, so we cannot 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 in accordance with the Facebook data usage guidelines ( https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ ). The data can enable Facebook and its partners to place advertisements on and outside of Facebook.
The data processing associated with the use of the Facebook pixel will only take place if you have given your express consent in accordance with Article 6(1)(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.

When using Google Analytics 4, the IP address transmitted by your end device when you use the website is automatically and automatically collected and processed in an anonymous manner, so that a direct personal reference to the information collected is excluded.

This makes it possible to determine and differentiate between groups of users of the website for the purpose of target group-optimized alignment of marketing measures. However, data collected via the "demographic characteristics" cannot be assigned to a specific person and therefore not to you personally.

tik tok pixels
This website uses the "TikTok Pixel", a tracking technology of the "TikTok" social network from TikTok Technology Limited, 10 Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin, D02 T380, Ireland ("TikTok").
With the help of cookies (small text files that are stored on the end device used), information about surfing behavior on our website is collected in pseudonymised form, transmitted to TikTok, stored there and evaluated in order to then enable the display of interest-based and personalized product recommendations on TikTok. The object of the information collected and processed in pseudonymised form is basically the device ID, the device type, time stamp, the operating system used and the IP address. The information can be assigned to the person of the user with the help of further information that TikTok has stored about the user, for example due to the ownership of an account on the social network "TikTok". TikTok can also combine the information collected via the pixel with other information that TikTok has collected via other websites and/or in connection with the use of the "TikTok" social network, and thus create pseudonymised usage profiles. Under no circumstances can the information collected be used to personally identify visitors to this website.
The TikTok Pixel also allows us to understand the effectiveness of advertisements on TikTok. If the user is redirected from an ad on TikTok to pages of this website and the cookies have not yet expired, the pixel records certain user actions predefined by us and can track them (e.g. completed transactions, leads, search queries on the website, product page views). When such an action is carried out, your browser sends an HTTP request to the TikTok server via the TikTok pixel from the cookie, with which certain information about the action is transmitted. Through this transmission, TikTok can create statistics about the usage behavior on our website after forwarding a TikTok ad, which we use to optimize our offer.
All of the processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for reading information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) (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.

The duration of the storage of personal data is based on the respective legal basis, the processing purpose and - if relevant - also based on the respective statutory retention period (e.g. commercial and tax retention periods).
When processing personal data on the basis of an express consent in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR, this data is stored until the person concerned revokes his consent.
If there are statutory retention periods for data that are processed as part of legal or similar obligations on the basis of Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR, this data will be routinely deleted after the retention period has expired, provided that it is no longer required to fulfill or initiate a contract and/or we have no legitimate interest in further storage.
When personal data is processed on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, this data is stored until the data subject exercises his or her right to object under Article 21 (1) GDPR, unless we can provide compelling reasons worthy of protection for processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
When processing personal data for the purpose of direct advertising on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR, this data is stored until the data subject exercises his right of objection under Article 21 Paragraph 2 GDPR.
Unless otherwise stated in the other information in this declaration on specific processing situations, stored personal data will be deleted when they are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
