Logging and Evaluating Usage Behavior for Interest Based Advertisement (also for Third Parties)

We want to present to our users advertisements, which are tailored to their interests or special offers (“interest based advertisement”), and want to limit the frequency of the visibility of certain advertisements - limit how often they see certain advertisements.

For this purpose, we use the following tools. The usage profiles created by the tools using advertising cookies or third party advertising cookies, so-called web beacons (invisible graphics which are also called pixels or counting pixels) or similar technologies. Usage profiles are not combined with personal data.

The tools are used by the providers to show our users in our online offer and in third party offers interest-based advertisements and to steer the frequency with which users see certain advertisements. Regarding the processing of data in connection with the tools, the providers serve as controllers as long as we have not stated otherwise. The tools’ providers forward information, for the purposes mentioned before, to third parties, if necessary.

The tools either do not process user IP addresses at all or shorten them immediately upon collection. You can find information on a tool's provider for each tool as well as information on how to object to the data collection performed by this tool.

Be advised that with regard to tools which use opt out cookies, the opt out function is related to a device or browser and is thus valid for the terminal device or browser used at this time. In case you use several terminal devices or browsers you must opt out on every device and in every browser used.

Additionally, you are able to generally avoid the creation of usage profiles by generally deactivating cookie usage.
