Retargeting and remarketing
Retargeting or remarketing are understood to mean technologies in which users who have previously visited a certain website are shown suitable advertising even after they have left this website. For this it is necessary to recognize Internet users beyond their own website, for which cookies from the respective service providers are used; in addition, previous usage behavior is taken into account. For example, if a user looks at certain products, these or similar products can later be displayed as advertising on other websites. It is personalized advertising that is adapted to the needs of each user. For this personalized advertising it is not necessary for the user to be identified beyond recognition. We therefore do not merge the data used for retargeting or remarketing with other data.
We use such technologies to place advertisements on the Internet. We use third-party providers to place the advertisements. Among other things, we use offers from Google, which enable the automatic display of products that are of interest to Internet users. This function is implemented by cookies. Further information on this technology can be found in the Google data protection provisions at The installation of cookies for Google Remarketing and Google AdWords Conversion Tracking can be prevented by setting the respective browser software by calling up the website http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ads/ and changing the corresponding setting.
