11. Google Analytics Remarketing

Our websites use Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This is a service by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This function enables linking the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This means that interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one device (e.g. mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browser history to your Google account for this purpose. As a result, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on every device on which you log in with your Google account.

To support this function, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated user IDs that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create target groups for cross-device advertising.

You can permanently object to cross-device remarketing / targeting by deactivating personalized advertising in your Google account by following this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb. The collected data are summarized in your Google account only based on your consent that you can grant or revoke at Google (Art. 6 Para. 1 Sub-para. a GDPR). For data collections that are not merged in your Google account (e.g. because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the merging), the collection of data is based on Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Sub-para. f GDPR. The website owner has a legitimate interest in the anonymized analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.
