9.2 Signing in with Apple
Single sign-on login with Apple Single-Sign-On and LinkedIn
"Single sign-on" or "single sign-on" or "authentication" means methods that allow users to log in to a provider of single sign-on procedures (e.g. a social network) with the help of a user account. The prerequisite for single sign-on authentication is that the users are registered with the respective single sign-on provider and enter the required access data in the online form provided for this purpose, or are already registered with the single sign-on provider and confirm the single sign-on registration via button.
Authentication is done directly with the respective single sign-on provider. In the context of such authentication, we receive a user ID with the information that the user is logged in to the respective single sign-on provider under this user ID and an ID that is no longer usable for us for other purposes (so-called "User Handle"). Whether additional data is transmitted to us depends solely on the single sign-on method used, on the data releases selected in the context of authentication and also on which data users have released to the single sign-on provider in the privacy or other settings of the user account. Depending on the single sign-on provider and the choice of users, different data can be, usually the email address and the user name. The password entered by the single sign-on provider as part of the single sign-on procedure is not visible to us, nor is it stored by us.
Users are asked to note that their data stored by us can be automatically compared with their user account with the single sign-on provider, but this is not always possible or actually done. For example, if the e-mail addresses of the users change, they must change them manually in their user account with us. If agreed with the users, we may process the single sign-on application within the scope of or before the fulfilment of the contract, insofar as the users have been requested, within the framework of a consent and otherwise use it on the basis of the legitimate interests of our side and the interests of the users in an effective and secure registration system.
Should users decide to stop linking their user account with the single sign-on provider for the single sign-on procedure, they must disconnect from the single sign-on provider within their user account. If users wish to delete their data with us, they must cancel their registration with us.

13) Online-Marketing
13.1 Facebook Pixel for creating Custom Audiences with advanced data matching (with cookie-consent tool) Within our online offer, the so-called "Facebook pixel" of the social network Facebook is used in the mode of extended data matching, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook").
On the basis of his express consent, when a user clicks on an ad played on Facebook and placed by us, an addition is added to the URL of our linked page by Facebook Pixel. This URL parameter is then inscribed in the user's browser via cookie, which sets our linked page itself. In addition, this cookie collects specific customer data, such as the e-mail address that we collect on our website linked to the Facebook ad during transactions such as purchases, account registrations or registrations (extended data matching). The cookie is then read out by Facebook Pixel and allows the data, including the specific customer data, to be forwarded to Facebook.
With the help of the Facebook pixel with extended data matching, Facebook is on the one hand possible to precisely identify the visitors of our online offer as the target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel with extended data matching to display the Facebook ads we serve only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined by the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel with extended data matching, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads meet the potential interest of users and do not have a harassing effect. This allows us to further evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by tracking whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversionConversion"). Compared to the standard version of Facebook Pixel, the advanced data matching feature helps us better measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns by capturing more associated conversions. All transmitted data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook data usage policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/) ). The data may allow Facebook and its partners to run ads on and off Facebook.
These processing operations take place exclusively upon granting express consent in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR.
Consent to the use of the Facebook pixel may only be given by users older than 13 years of age. If you are younger, we ask you to ask your legal guardian for permission.
The information generated by Facebook is usually transmitted to a Facebook server and stored there, where it can also be transmitted to the servers of Facebook Inc. in the USA. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, remove the check mark placed in the "CookieConsentTool" on the websitenext to the "Facebook Pixel" setting.

This website uses the online marketing tool Google Marketing Platform of the operator Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("GMP").
GMP uses cookies to display ads relevant to users, improve campaign performance reports, or prevent a user from seeing the same ads multiple times. Using a cookie ID, Google records which ads are displayed in which browser and can thus prevent them from being displayed multiple times. The processing is based on our legitimate interest in the optimal marketing of our website in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit.f GDPR.
In addition, GMP can use cookie IDs to collect so-called conversions related to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees a GMP ad and later, when using the same browser, visits the advertiser's website and buys something through that website. According to Google, GMP cookies do not contain any personal information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge as follows: By integrating GMP, Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will find out and store your IP address. In the context of the use of GMP, personal data may also be transferred to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.
If you wish to object to participation in this tracking procedure, you can disable cookies for conversiontracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain www.googleadservices.com (see https://www.google.de/settings/ads), which will be deleted if you disable your cookies. Alternatively, you can contact the Digital Advertising Alliance at the Internet address www.aboutads.info about the setting of cookies and make your desired settings.

Our social media appearances
Data processing through social networks
We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The social networks we use in detail can be found below.
Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. can usually comprehensively analyse your user behaviour when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or advertising banners).

In this case, this data collection takes place, for example, via cookies, which are stored on your terminal device or by collecting your IP address.
With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, you can see interest-based advertising inside and outside your social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertisement may be displayed on all devices on which you are logged in or logged in.
Please also note that we cannot track all processing processes on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing operations may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals.

Please note that despite our joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have a full influence on the data processing processes of the social media portals. Our possibilities depend significantly on the company policy of the respective provider.
Speicherdauer
