The information created by the cookie about your use of our websites (such as your anonymized IP address) is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on these websites, your IP address is first shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union and in other countries which are contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. It is only in exceptional cases that the IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of these websites Google will use this information to analyze your use of the websites to create reports about the website activities and provide further services for the website operator in connection with the use of the websites and the Internet.

2.1.5 Google Tag Manager

This website uses “Google Tag Manager”. Google Tag Manager is a tool for managing website tags. The tool is a domain without cookies and does not record personal data. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may record data. Google Tag Manager does not access these data. If deactivation was performed on domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags which are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

 

2.1.6 Google Ads

We use the services of Google Ads for Internet-based advertising. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. 

The purpose of Google Ads is the advertisement of our website through insertion of interest-relevant advertising on the Internet pages of third parties, and in the search engine results from Google. If a relevant person is directed to our website via a Google Ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the IT system of the relevant person by Google. A conversion cookie becomes invalid after 30 days and does not serve to identify the relevant person. The data and information collected through using the conversion cookie are used by Google to create visitor statistics for our website. These visitor statistics are used by us to evaluate the success of Google Ads. Neither our company nor other advertising customers of Google Ads receive information from Google, with which the relevant person could be identified.
The conversion cookies are used to store personal information, such as the webpages visited by the relevant person. The information generated by the cookie is sent to Google in the USA and stored there.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by means of a respective setting in the Internet browser used, thus permanently rejecting the placing of cookies. Such a configuration of the Internet browser used would also prevent the setting of a conversion cookie by Google. Furthermore, a cookie already set by Google Ads can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
The relevant person also has the option to not consent to the interest-related advertising by Google. For this purpose, the relevant person must open the link www.google.de/settings/ads in each of the Internet browsers used, and make the desired settings there.

Further information and the applicable privacy policies of Google can be accessed at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

 

2.1.7 Integration of YouTube videos

a) We have integrated YouTube videos in our online offer, which are stored at www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website.

b) By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the respective subpage of our website. Furthermore, the data listed under item 2.1.1 of this statement are sent. This occurs independently of YouTube providing a user account which you are logged into, or no user account being available. If you are logged into Google, your data is directly associated with your account. If you do not want to be associated with your profile at YouTube, you must log out before the button is activated. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the design of its websites as needed. Such an evaluation occurs in particular (even for users not logged in) for the provision of needs-based advertising and to notify other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of such user profiles, whereby you must address this right to YouTube.

c) Further information about the purpose and extent of the data collection and its processing by YouTube can be found in the privacy policy. It also contains further information about your rights and configuration options to protect your privacy. Google processes your personal data in the USA as well and has subscribed to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

3. Transmission and disclosure of your data to third parties

As a principle, we do not disclose your data to third parties without your consent.

Sometimes we use the support of third-party companies for processing electronic data. These are reliable service providers that we have carefully selected to process your data in accordance with our instructions. The legal basis for this is Art. 28 GDPR. Our service providers are, of course, obligated to handle the data carefully, to act only in accordance with our instructions and according to the applicable data protection regulations, and especially not to use the data for their own purposes nor pass them on to third parties.

In addition, individual cases may arise in which we are legally obliged to pass on your data on official orders as and insofar as this is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecution or to avert danger by police or other authorities. The legal basis for the passing on of the data in these cases is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) of the GDPR.

Finally, there may be cases in which your data is disclosed to companies associated with TOX® PRESSOTECHNIK GmbH & Co. KG (subsidiary or sister company) for one of the purposes mentioned under clause 2 for distribution of work within the TOX group. The purpose of the disclosure is to fulfil the tasks arising in the pursuit of business objectives within a group of companies in a structured manner within our group of companies and in accordance with our division of labour; the legal basis for this is Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR.

Insofar as personal data is processed outside the states of the European Economic Area ("EEA"), we protect your personal data by transmitting them and processing them within our group of companies exclusively in accordance with the standard contractual clauses stipulat-ed by the EU Commission in the sense of Art. 46 para. 2 lit c GDPR.
