Use of Facebook Custom Audiences
We use the services of Google Adwords to draw attention to our attractive offers by means of advertising materials (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. In relation to the advertising campaign data, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. We pursue thereby the interest to show you advertisement, which is of interest for you, to arrange our Website for you more interestingly and to reach a fair calculation of advertising costs.
These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called “Ad Servers”. For this purpose, we use Ad Server cookies to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as the insertion of ads or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and should not be used to identify you personally. The unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wants to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.
These cookies enable Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer’s website and the cookie stored on his or her computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in these advertising measures. Google merely provides us with statistical evaluations. On the basis of these evaluations, we can identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising media, in particular, we cannot identify the users on the basis of this information.
