If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognized that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made, so that you do not have to enter them again.
Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a notice always appears before a new cookie is created. However, the complete deactivation of cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of our website.
5. analysis tools
a) General information about analysis tools
The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure a needs-based design and continuous optimization of our website. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you.
The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.
In the course of using the analysis tools, it is possible that personal data (such as your IP address) will be passed on or disclosed to third-party companies. These may also be located outside the European Economic Area (EEA), i.e. in third countries. Such processing will only take place with your consent, Art. 6 (1) lit a DS-GVO). We will inform you about the respective details of the transfer in the following at the relevant points.
Some third countries are certified by the European Commission as having a level of data protection comparable to the EEA standard through so-called adequacy decisions (a list of these countries and a copy of the adequacy decisions can be obtained here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/adequacy-decisions_en). However, in other third countries to which personal data may be transferred, there may not be a consistently high level of data protection due to a lack of legal provisions. According to the European Court of Justice, an adequate level of protection for data transfers to the USA can currently only be established under extremely strict conditions. Where we transfer data to third countries, we ensure that data protection is adequately guaranteed. This is possible via binding company regulations, standard contractual clauses of the European Commission for the protection of personal data pursuant to Art. 46 Para. 1, 2 lit. c DS-GVO (the 2021 standard contractual clauses are available at https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32021D0915&locale-en), certificates or recognized codes of conduct. Please contact our data protection officer if you would like more information on this.
b) Google Analytics
For the purpose of demand-oriented design and ongoing optimization of our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymized usage profiles are created and cookies (see under section 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as:
- Browser type/version,
- operating system used,
- Referrer URL (the previously visited page),
- Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
- Time of the server request,
In order to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our website for you, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. In this process, Google Adwords sets a cookie (see section 4) on your computer if you have accessed our website via a Google ad.
These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer's website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.
Each Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Adwords customers' websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The Adwords customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.
c) Use of the remarketing or "similar target groups" function of Google Inc.
For the purpose of demand-oriented design as well as optimization of this website, anonymized data is additionally collected and stored by solutions and technologies of econda GmbH and user profiles are created from this data using pseudonyms. Cookies may be used for this purpose, which enable the recognition of an Internet browser. However, usage profiles are not merged with data about the bearer of the pseudonym without the express consent of the visitor. In particular, IP addresses are made unrecognizable immediately after receipt, making it impossible to assign usage profiles to IP addresses. Visitors to this website can object to this data collection and storage at any time for the future here. The objection only applies to the device and the web browser on which it was set, please repeat the process on all devices if necessary.
If you delete the opt-out cookie, the subsequent requests will be stored by us again by default; you can object here.
e) Use of SalesViewer® technology

6. social media plug-ins
We use social plug-ins of the social networks Facebook on our website on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO in order to make Wilhelm Fricke better known via this. The underlying promotional purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the DSGVO. The responsibility for the data protection compliant operation is to be ensured by their respective providers.
Social media plugins from Facebook are used on our website to make their use more personal. For this purpose, we use the "LIKE" or "SHARE" button or the so-called Facebook pixel. This is an offer from Facebook.
When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin or pixel, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser, which then integrates it into the website.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. As a rule, a cookie is set for this purpose, with which interest data is collected using pseudonyms. Based on this information, interest-related advertisements about our offers are displayed on the websites of our partners. No directly personal data is stored and no usage profiles are merged with personal data about you.
If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly assign your visit to our website to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the "LIKE" or "SHARE" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.
Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of the Facebook pages (also called "retargeting"). For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook. If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
We use the "extended data protection mode" option provided by YouTube. When you visit a page that has an embedded video, a connection is established to the YouTube servers and the content is displayed on the website by notifying your browser. According to the information provided by YouTube, in "extended data protection mode" your data - in particular the information about which of our Internet pages you have visited, as well as device-specific information including the IP address - is only transmitted to the YouTube server in the USA when you watch the video. By activating this plugin and clicking on the video, you consent to this transmission.
