Furthermore, the screen size of the device, the type of device, information on the browser, the country from which access was made and the preferred language are recorded. If personal data of you or third parties are displayed on a website, these are automatically hidden by Smartlook. They are therefore not traceable for us.

13.3 Meta Pixel
For marketing purposes, this website uses so-called conversion and retargeting tags (also "meta pixels") of the provider Meta, i.e. Metaplatforms Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (hereinafter Meta).
If we have your consent, the meta pixel will be set in your terminal device and the following information will be read out and the following data will be collected when you visit the website: Web pages visited, interest in content, access times, page views, first visit on the website, internal search queries, device information, your IP address, your location, your e-mail address, your telephone number, your gender, your first and last name, your date of birth, your user ID, your address.
We process this data for the following events, i.e. for the following purposes: page view (number of views of a particular website under a web browser), view content (pure visit on the website), add to cart (adding an item to the shopping cart), purchase (completion of the purchase with order confirmation) and initiate checkout (start the purchase process) have been collected and transmitted from there to our server. This website uses the meta pixel to analyze the general use of the website and to track the effectiveness of meta advertising ("conversion"). In addition, the meta pixel is used to show you individualized advertising messages based on your interest ("retargeting"). For this purpose, Meta processes data that the service collects via cookies and similar technologies on this website.
Due to the combined marketing tools used (Meta Pixel and Conversions API), your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the server of Metaplatforms Ireland Ltd. (Meta) as soon as we have your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a, 49 (1) lit. a GDPR in connection with § 25 (1) Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG). Insofar as the above-mentioned data is collected, processed and also transmitted to Meta for the event add to cart (adding an item to the shopping cart), purchase (completion of the purchase with order confirmation) and initiate checkout (starting the purchase process), this is done in accordance with § 25 (2) 2 Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG), because this information which is collected and processed is required for the desired telemedia service of the user, selection of the product and insertion into the shopping cart, the payment function and for the completion of the ordering process and the purchase. In terms of data protection law, on the other hand, the transmission to Meta and thus also to the USA is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a, 49 (1) lit. a GDPR.
The meta pixel is integrated by Meta when you call up our website immediately after you have given us your consent to user-based advertising (the creation of individualized or suitable advertisements, as well as for their optimization) in accordance with § 25 para. 1 TTDSG in conjunction with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, 49 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and can save a so-called cookie, i.e. a small file, on your device. If you subsequently log in to Facebook (Meta) or visit Facebook (Meta) while logged in, your visit to our website will be noted in your profile. The data collected about you is anonymous for us, so it does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Meta so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible. The processing of the data by Meta takes place within the framework of Meta's data usage policy. Accordingly, you can find more information on how the remarketing pixel works and generally on the display of Facebook ads in Facebook's data usage policy: https://www.facebook.com/privacy/policy.
It is not excluded that Metaplatforms Ireland Ltd. also transmits the collected data to the parent company in the USA, i.e. to an insecure third country where there is no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU. In this respect, your consent also constitutes consent to data processing in the USA.
The service provider of this tool, Meta Pixel, is the American company Meta Platforms Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The company Meta (Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland) is responsible for the European region.

Insofar as the above data is collected, processed and transmitted to Meta for the event purchase (conclusion of the purchase with order confirmation), this is done in accordance with § 25 (2) 2 Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act (TTDSG), because this information, which is collected and processed, is required for the telemedia service of the purchase requested by you. In terms of data protection law, however, the transmission to Meta and thus also to the USA is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a, 49 (1) lit. a GDPR.
