We use Facebook Pixel for marketing and optimisation purposes, in particular to place ads at Facebook that are relevant and interesting for you and to improve our offer, make it more interesting for you as a user and to avoid any annoying ads.
Facebook pixel enables Facebook to display our ads on Facebook, so-called “Facebook Ads”, only to those Facebook users who were visitors on our website, in particular to those who have shown an interest in our online offer, used our contact form or showed an interest in certain subjects or products. In addition, Facebook pixel enables a verification whether a user was directed to our website after having clicked on our Facebook Ads. Facebook pixel uses first-party cookies as a standard which help to recognise a user on the Internet and to analyse their usage behaviour.
If you are logged into Facebook with your user account, your visit to our online offer will be noted in your user account. If you use our contact form as a result or log in later as a customer, you may no longer see advertisements on Facebook.
The data collected about you is anonymous for us, i.e. do not allow any conclusions to be drawn regarding the identity of the user or whether you visit our website from Facebook. However, Facebook may link such data with your Facebook user account.
We have no influence on the scope and the further use of data that is collected by Facebook through the use of Facebook pixel. According to our information, Facebook receives the information that you visited the relevant part of our website or clicked on one of our ads. If you have a user account with Facebook and are registered there, Facebook may allocate the visit to your user account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or did not log in, it is possible that Facebook may learn of and store your IP address and other identification features, if appropriate. If you disclose more information about yourself through lead ads, such will also be used by Facebook. The more data is collected, the more precisely Facebook will be able to place its ads and intensify them. Facebook uses such information through the so-called Audience Network to display advertising both on Facebook itself and on websites or applications of third parties.
We do not disclose any customer data to Facebook. The data collected through the cookies are the sole basis for the ads. We do not use the additional option to upload customer data in order to optimise the target groups.
You may object to the above-mentioned collection by Facebook Pixel and the use of your data to present Facebook Ads.

10.7 LinkedIn Insight Tag

We use the conversion tracking technology and the retargeting function of LinkedIn Corporation / LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton, Place, Dublin 2, Ireland (below referred to as “LinkedIn”) on our website.

This technology enables the display of personalised ads on LinkedIn for visitors of our website. Furthermore, it offers the option to create anonymous reports on the performance of the ads and information on website interactions. LinkedIn does not share personal data with us, but only provides summarised reports. For this purpose, the LinkedIn insight tag is also integrated on our website, to enable a connection to the LinkedIn server if you visit our website or are simultaneously logged on to your LinkedIn account.

The LinkedIn Insight Tag enables us to collect data about visits to our website, including the URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser characteristics as well as a timestamp. These data are encrypted, the IP addresses are truncated, and the members’ unique IDs are removed within seven days in order to pseudonymise the data.

LinkedIn additionally offers retargeting for website visitors so that we can use this data to display targeted advertising outside of our website without the member being identified. If you disclose more information about you through Lead Ads, these might also be used by LinkedIn. We have no influence on the scope and further use of data that is collected by the use of LinkedIn Insight Tag of LinkedIn.

We use the conversion tracking for the targeted advertising of our service: With the aid of this feature, we can target you on the Twitter platform with advertising based on your interests. Twitter uses so-called “tags” for this. Via such tag, visits to our website as well as usage data are recorded in pseudonymous form. If you subsequently visit Twitter, ad impressions will be displayed to you on the basis of your interests. Twitter will thus be informed by your browser that our website has been accessed from your device.
As a result of the integration of tags, Twitter will be informed that you have accessed the corresponding website. We have no influence over the scope of the data transmitted or their further processing by Twitter: Where you are registered with a Twitter service, Twitter may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Twitter or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may find out and store your IP address and other identifying features. The information generated by these tags concerning your use of our services will be transferred to a Twitter server in the USA and be stored there. If you nevertheless do not wish to have Twitter’s remarketing feature, you can deactivate this feature in the Ads Settings section of your Twitter account.

The legal basis for the use of Twitter conversion tracking is your consent given voluntarily. Twitter is the recipient of the data collected.

The cookies stored on your device will have a lifespan of up to 60 months.

Pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data, which takes place on the basis of Article 6 (1) (1) (f) GDPR (data processing to safeguard legitimate interests).

If you object, we will no longer process your personal data for the purposes covered by the objection, except the following cases:

  • we are able to prove compelling reasons worthy of protection which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject; or
  • the processing is for the purpose of the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Insofar as the objection only relates to data processing in connection with direct advertising, then we will no longer process your personal data for this purpose.

You do not need to use any form in order to do so, but may e.g. send an e-mail to datenschutz@presse-monitor.de or a message to the contact data provided above in Section 3.

  • Right to lodge a Complaint:
    In addition, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Article 77 of the GDPR in conjunction with Section 19 of the BDSG).

 

14. Effect of Non-Notification

If the personal data specified is not provided, we will be unable to collect them. The individual purposes described above might not be achieved.

15. No automated decision-making

We do not use fully automated decision-making as described in Article 22 of the GDPR for establishing and implementing contractual relationships.
