We use the double opt-in procedure for our newsletter subscription. This means that after you subscribe, we send you an email at the email address you indicated in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. By confirming, you are giving us your express consent to the receipt of the newsletter and the associated processing of your personal data. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) 1 a) GDPR.

6. Social Media Plug-ins

Our website www.kiekert.com currently uses the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Twitter, Xing and LinkedIn. Therefore, we use the so called “two-click-solution”. If you visit our website, no data will be transferred to the plug-in provider in principle. You can identify the provider of each plug-in by its logo or its initial letter shown on our website. We offer the opportunity to directly communicate with the provider of each plug-in via those buttons. Only if you click on the respective button, this provider will receive an information that you are a visitor of our website. In addition, the data mentioned under item 2 of this policy will be transferred. With regards to Facebook and Xing, your IP address will be anonymized immediately after collection of the data according to the information given by the respective German providers. As a consequence, your personal data will be processed to the respective provider and stored there (in case of US providers your data will be stored in the USA) if you activate a plug-in. As the plug-in providers especially collect data via cookies, therefore we recommend to delete all cookies in the security settings of your browser before clicking on the respective plug-in button.

We do not have any influence on the data being collected by the providers and their ways of data processing nor do we know in detail, to which extent and purposes data are being collected and processed or for how long those data will be stored. Also, we do not have information on the terms, after which data are deleted by the plug-in providers.

Each plug-in provider will store your personal data as a user profile and will use them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or user-friendly design of its own website. Such analysis especially takes place (even for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of demand-actuated advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object creation of such user profiles, therefore you will have to contact the provider of the respective plug-in. The plug-ins enable you to interact with the social networks and with other users for optimizing our offers for you and to make our offers more interesting for you as a user. The use of social media plug-ins is based on Art. 6 (1) 1 f) GDPR.

A transfer of data takes place independently from whether you own a user account on the respective social media network and whether you are logged in or not. In case you are logged in on the respective network at the time of using the plug-in, all data collected on our website will directly be connected with you user account on this social network. If you use the activated button, e.g. to link a page, the plug-in provider will store also this information in your user account and share it with your contacts within this network. We therefore recommend to log-out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating a plug-in button on our website to avoid a connection to your personal account by the provider of the respective plug-in.

Further information on purposes and extent of data collection and data processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the subsequently mentioned privacy policies of each provider. There you can also find further information on your rights and options for settings to protect your privacy.

7. Advertising, Remarketing and automated individual decisions incl. profiling

 

a. Facebook Ads Conversion Tracking (Facebook Pixel), Custom Audiences and Lookalike Audiences

In the context of our online services, we are using the so called “Facebook Pixel” provided by the social network Facebook, which is implemented on our website by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA and in case you are located in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin, Ireland, in order to meet our legitimate interests of analyzing, optimizing and economic operation of our online services.

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Framework (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework) and thereby guarantees to fulfill the requirements of European data protection laws.

By using the Facebook Pixel, it is possible to determine the visitors of our online services as a target group for our advertisements (so called “Facebook Ads”). As a consequence, we use Facebook Pixel to show our Facebook Ads only to those users who have shown interest in our online services or who fulfill certain characteristics (e.g. interest in certain topics or products, which is identified by the websites visited), which we specify for Facebook upfront (so called “Custom Audiences”). Furthermore, Facebook will identify users, which show similar user behavior as the users identified by “Custom Audiences” so that relevant Facebook Ads can be shown to those users as well (“Lookalike Audiences”).

Supported by Facebook Pixel, we are also able to track the effectiveness of our advertisements on Facebook for statistical and market research purposes. In this context, we observe whether users have been forwarded to our website after clicking on one of our Facebook advertisements (so called “Conversion Tracking”).

Due to the use of these marketing tools, your web browser will establish a direct connection to the server of Facebook. We do not have influence on the extent to which Facebook collects and further uses data by way of this tool, therefore we can only inform you according to our state of knowledge: By the integration of Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook is being informed that you have called up the respective website of our internet presence or clicked on one of our advertisements. As far as you are registered with Facebook, Facebook will be able to match your visit on our website with your account. Even in case you are not registered with Facebook or not logged into your account, it may be possible that Facebook recognizes your IP address and possibly further identifiers and stores such data.

You may deactivate the function “Facebook Custom Audiences” on the website https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads# if you wish.

The legal basis for data processing in this case is Art. 6 (1) 1 f) GDPR. Further information on data processing performed by Facebook is available under https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

 

b. Google Adwords, Ad Manager, Ad Manager Audience Extension and Remaketing

We are using the tool “Google Adwords” to draw attention to our offers on external websites supported by marketing media (so called Google Adwords). In relation to the data of our marketing campaigns, we are able to evaluate the success of each of our marketing campaigns as we are interested in only showing advertisements to you which you may be interested in, to design our website in a more interesting manner and to achieve a fair calculation of our advertisement costs.

The mentioned marketing media are delivered by Google via so called “Ad Servers”. For this purpose, we are using Ad Server Cookies, by which certain parameters for success measurement such as display of advertisements or clicks by website users can be evaluated. As far as you get on our website by being linked from a Google advertisement, Google Adwords will store a Cookie on your computer. Those Cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and shall not be used to identify you in person. Together with such Cookie, the analytical data of Unique Cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), most recent impression (relevant for Post-View-Conversions) as well as opt-out information (tagging that the user does not whish to be contacted again) will be stored.

The mentioned Cookies enable Google to recognize your web browser. As far as a user visits certain website of an Adwords customer and the Cookie stored on the user`s computer has not expired, Google and the customer are able to identify that such user has clicked on an advertisement and has been forwarded to the respective website. Each Adwords customer is allocated to a different Cooke; therefore, the Cookies cannot be tracked through the website of Adwords customers. We do not collect or process personal data in the context of these marketing features, we only receive statistical analyses from Google. Based on these analyses, we can determine which of our marketing activities are most effective. We do not get any further data resulting from the use of the marketing features and in particular, we are not able to identify users based on such information.

Due to the use of the mentioned marketing features, your browser will automatically establish a direct connection to the server of Google. We do not have influence on the extent to which Google collects and further uses data by way of this tool, therefore we can only inform you according to our state of knowledge: By the integration of Google Adwords, Google will receive the information that you have called up the respective part of our internet presence or clicked on one of our advertisements. As far as you are registered with a service of Google, Google will be able to match your website visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or not logged into your account, it may be possible that Google recognizes and stores your IP address.

You can prevent your participation in the mentioned tracking by different means: a) by adjusting your personal settings of your browser software; in particular the suppression of third party cookies will lead to the situation that you do not get any advertisements from third party suppliers; b) by deactivating of Cookies for conversion tracking, for this you need to adjust the settings of your browser in a way that Cookies of the domain „www.googleadservices.com“ are blocked (possible under https://www.google.de/settings/ads); these settings will be deleted when you delete your Cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-related advertisements of the providers, which are members of the self-regulating campaign “About Ads” on the website http://www.aboutads.info/choices; these settings will be deleted when you delete your Cookies; d) by permanent deactivation of Cookies in your browser Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome on the website http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that in such case not all functions of this service may be available to their full extent.

The legal basis for processing of your data in this case is Art. 6 (1) 1 f) GDPR.

In addition to Adwords Conversion, we are using the tools Google Remarketing, Google Ad Manager and Google Ads Similar Audiences.

Google Remarketing is a function by which we would like to contact you again. This tool enables that our advertisements are displayed to you during your further internet use after your visit on our website. This is conducted by Cookies stored in your browser, by which Google is tracking and evaluating your user behavior during the visit of different websites. Google will be able to recognize your previous visit(s) on our website. According to the information provided by Google, the data collected in the context of remarketing will not be matched with or linked to your personal data stored by Google in other contexts and pseudonymization is used by Google while performing remarketing.

The remarketing tool “Google Ad Manager” is working with the Cookie “DoubleClick by Google”. DoubleClick is using Cookies to provide relevant advertisements to users, to improve the reports on the performance of our campaign and to avoid that the same advertisements are displayed to a certain user multiple times. Google recognizes by way of a Cookie ID, which kind of advertisements are displayed in which browser and is thereby able to avoid multiple displaying. Furthermore, DoubleClick is able to track so called Conversions, which are related to advertisement inquiries. This may be the case for example where a DoubleClick advertisement is shown to a user and such user calls up the website of the advertiser and purchases products on this website. According to Google, DoubleClick Cookies do not contain personal data. Your web browser will automatically establish a direct connection to the server of Google. We do not have influence on the extent to which Google collects and further uses data by way of this tool, therefore we can only inform you according to our state of knowledge: By integration of the DoubleClick Cookie, Google will receive the information that you have called up the respective part of our internet presence or clicked on one of our advertisements. As far as you are registered with a service of Google, Google will be able to match your website visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or not logged into your account, it may be possible that Google recognizes and stores your IP address.

You can prevent your participation in the mentioned tracking by different means: a) by adjusting your personal settings of your browser software; in particular the suppression of third party cookies will lead to the situation that you do not get any advertisements from third party suppliers; b) by deactivating of Cookies for conversion tracking, for this you need to adjust the settings of your browser in a way that Cookies of the domain „www.googleadservices.com“ are blocked (possible under https://www.google.de/settings/ads); these settings will be deleted when you delete your Cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-related advertisements of the providers, which are members of the self-regulating campaign “About Ads” on the website http://www.aboutads.info/choices; these settings will be deleted when you delete your Cookies; d) by permanent deactivation of Cookies in your browser Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome on the website http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that in such case not all functions of this service may be available to their full extent.

The legal basis for the processing of your data in this case is Art. 6 (1) 1 f) GDPR. Further information on “DoubleClick by Google” is available on https://www.google.de/doubleclick.

The feature “Google Ads Similar Audiences” is using the data collected by Google Remarketing to display advertisements to users who have shown a similar behavior to those who are already listed in our remarketing list due to their previous visit of our website. In case you do not whish to participate in this method, you may exclude it in your Google settings under https://adssettings.google.com. The legal basis for processing of your data in this case is Art. 6 (1) 1 f) GDPR.

Further information regarding data protection on Google can be found on http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy as well as on https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html.

c. Google Tag Manager

On our website, we are using Google Tag Manager. This allows us to organize website tags by an interface. This tool itself consists of a cookie free domain and does not acquire personal data, but it ensures triggering of other tags, which themselves may acquire personal data. Google Tag Manager does not access these data. As far as you have deactivated certain tracking tags on a domain or cookie level, such deactivation will persist when such tags are implemented by use of Google Tag Manager.

 

d. LinkedIn Conversion Tracking and Retargeting

We are using the analysis and Conversion Tracking technology of the platform LinkedIn Inc. (2029 Stierlin Ct, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereinafter „LinkedIn“).

By use of the mentioned technology, LinkedIn is able to provide to you more relevant advertisements based on your interests. Furthermore, LinkedIn will provide to us aggregated and anonymous reports on display activities as well as information on the way in which you interact with our website. For this purpose, LinkedIn uses a Javascript code (Insight Tag), which places a Cookie in your web browser or uses a pixel. By way of the LinkedIn Insight Tag, data related to the use of our website are being acquired including URL, Referrer URL, IP address, characteristics of devices and browser, time stamp and website views. All data acquired by LinkedIn Insight Tag will be anonymized within 7 days. Such anonymized data will be deleted within 90 days.

In connection with the use of LinkedIn Conversion Tracking, the information acquired will be processed also on servers of LinkedIn within the USA. LinkedIn is certified under the the EU-US Privacy Shield and therefore guarantees compliance with European data protection regulations.
