c. Duration of storage
Unless otherwise stated in the following notices, we will only store the data for as long as is necessary to achieve the processing purpose or to fulfil our contractual or statutory obligations.

Google AdWords Remarketing
We use Google Adwords to advertise this website in Google search results and on third-party websites. When you visit our website, Google sets a remarketing cookie, which automatically uses a pseudonymous cookie ID and the pages you visit to enable interest-based advertising. This serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in optimum marketing of our website within the framework of a weighing of interests pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The data collected in this context will be deleted after we have ceased to use Google AdWords Remarketing for the intended purpose and at the end of its use.
Further data processing will only take place if you have agreed to Google linking your web and app browser history to your Google account and using information from your Google account to personalize ads you see on the web. In this case, if you are logged in to Google while browsing our site, Google will use your information in conjunction with Google Analytics data to create and define cross-device remarketing audience lists. Google will temporarily link your personal data to Google Analytics data in order to create target groups.
Google AdWords Remarketing is a service provided by Google LLC (www.google.de). The Google LLC is headquartered in the USA and is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. A current certificate can be viewed here. Due to this agreement between the USA and the European Commission, the latter has determined an appropriate level of data protection for companies certified under the Privacy Shield.

Facebook Website Custom Audiences
We use communication tools of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, in particular the product "Website Custom Audiences". This serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in optimal marketing of our website within the scope of a weighing of interests pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. In principle, only pseudonymised data is transmitted to Facebook for analysis and marketing purposes. The Facebook cookie is used for the Custom Audiences website product.

8. Social Plugins
So-called social plugins ("plugins") from social networks are used on our website.
When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook, Google, Twitter or Instagram servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly to your browser by the respective provider and integrated into the page. By integrating the plugins, the providers receive the information that your browser has called the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile or are not currently logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a server of the respective provider (possibly to the USA) and stored there. If you are logged in to one of the services, the providers can assign the visit to our website directly to your profile in the respective social network. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the "Like" or "Share" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a server of the provider and stored there. The information is also published in the social network and displayed there to your contacts. This serves to protect our predominantly legitimate interests in an optimal marketing of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers as well as a contact option and your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in the data protection information of the providers.
