These can be external service providers as well as companies from the METRO Group, such as service centers used by various METRO Group companies (shared services centers). These service providers may be located both inside and outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. We use contractual agreements (so-called “Data Processing Agreement”) with the service providers to ensure that they process personal data in accordance with the requirements of the GDPR, even if the data processing takes place outside the European Union or the European Economic Area in countries in which otherwise, an adequate level of data protection is not guaranteed and there is no adequacy decision by the European Commission, as explained in point 5 below.

If, in the context of our processing, we disclose data to other persons and companies (contract processors or third parties), transmit the data to them or otherwise grant access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of a legal permission (e.g. if a transmission of the data to third parties, as required by payment service providers, pursuant to Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. b. GDPR to fulfill the contract), you have given your written consent, a legal obligation obliges it or based on our legitimate interests (e.g. the use of agents, webhosters, etc.).

Your IP address will be shortend by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internat usage to the website operator. The provided IP address provided by Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google information.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. You may also prevent the collection by Google of the data generated by the cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP adress) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available at the following link and install: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
We use Google Analytics to display advertisements displayed within Google and its affiliate advertising services, only those users who have shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain characteristics (eg interests in specific topics or products visited by them) Web pages) that we submit to Google (so-called „remarketing“ or „Google Analytics audiences“). With Remarketing Audiences, we also want to make sure that our ads are in line with the potential interest of users and are not annoying.
We use on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f. GDPR) we use the marketing and remarketing services („Google Marketing Services „), LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (“ Google „).
Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European privacy legislation (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
Google Marketing Services allows us to better target advertisements for and on our website so that we only present ads to users that potentially match their interests. If a user e.g. showing ads for products he’s been interested in on other websites is called remarketing. For these purposes, when Google and our other websites accessing Google Marketing Services are directly accessed by Google, a code will be executed by Google and so-called (re) marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also called „Web Beacons“) incorporated into the website. With their help, the user is provided with an individual cookie, i.e. a small file is saved (instead of cookies, comparable technologies can also be used). The cookies can be set by different domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. In this file is noted which web pages the user visited, for what content he is interested and what offers he has clicked, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visit time and other information on the use of the online offer. The IP address of the users is also recorded.The above information may also be linked by Google with such information from other sources. If the user then visits other websites, they can be displayed according to his interests, the ads tailored to him.
The data of the users are pseudonym processed in the context of the Google marketing services. That Google stores and processes e.g. not the name or e-mail address of the users, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. That from the perspective of Google, the ads are not managed and displayed to a specifically identified person, but to the cookie owner, regardless of who that cookie owner is. This does not apply if a user has explicitly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The information collected about users through Google Marketing Services is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the United States.
Among the Google marketing services we use is u.a. the online advertising program „Google AdWords“. In the case of Google AdWords, each advertiser receives a different „conversion cookie“. Cookies can not be tracked through AdWords advertisers‘ websites. The information collected through the cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Advertisers will see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.
Also we can use the service „Google Optimizer“. Google Optimizer allows us to understand how various changes to a website (such as changes to the input fields, the design, etc.) can take place in so-called „A / B testings“. Cookies are stored on users‘ devices for these purposes. Only pseudonymous data of the users are processed.
In addition, we may use the „Google Tag Manager“ to integrate and manage the Google Analytics and Marketing Services on our website.
If you wish to opt-out of interest-based advertising through Google Marketing Services, you can take advantage of Google’s recruitment and opt-out options: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.
19. Facebook, Custom Audiences and Facebook Marketing Services
Within our online offer is used due to our legitimate interests in analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer and for these purposes, the so-called „Facebook pixel“ of the social network Facebook, by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025 , USA, or, if you are located in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland („Facebook“).
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European privacy legislation (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is on the one hand possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called „Facebook ads“). Accordingly, we use the Facebook Pixel to display the Facebook Ads we have been sent only to those Facebook users who have shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain features (e.g. interests in certain topics or products visited by them), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called „Custom Audiences“). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to make sure that our Facebook ads are in line with the potential interest of users and are not annoying. With the help of the Facebook pixel we can also understand the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes, in which we see whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called „conversion“).
The processing of the data by Facebook is part of Facebook’s data usage policy. Accordingly, general notes on how to display Facebook Ads, in Facebook’s Data Usage Policy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. For specific information and details about the Facebook Pixel and how it works, visit the help section of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.
You may object to the capture by the Facebook Pixel and use of your data to display Facebook Ads. To set which types of ads you see within Facebook, you can go to the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions for the usage-based advertising settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings are platform independent, i. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
To prevent the collection of your data by means of the Facebook pixel on our website, please click the following link: Facebook opt-out Note: If you click the link, an „opt-out“ cookie will be saved on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, then you have to click the link again. Furthermore, the opt-out only applies within the browser you use and only within our webdomain on which the link was clicked.
You can also use the Cookies for distance measurement and promotional purposes via the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/) and in addition the US website (http://www.aboutads.info/choices) or the European website (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/).
20. Facebook social plugins
Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) 1 f. GDPR) we use social plugins („plugins“) of the social network facebook.com, which operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland („Facebook“). The plugins can represent interaction elements or content (eg videos, graphics or text contributions) and can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white „f“ on blue tile, the terms „Like“, „Like“ or a „thumbs up“ sign) or are marked with the addition „Facebook Social Plugin“. The list and appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European privacy legislation (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).
When a user invokes a feature of this online offering that includes such a plugin, their device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the device of the user and incorporated by him into the online offer. In the process, user profiles can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform the users according to our knowledge.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example, press the Like button or leave a comment, the information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this online offer and link it to his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook and delete his cookies before using our online offer. Other settings and inconsistencies regarding the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or via the US-American site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU page http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform independent, i.e. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
21. Integration of services and content of third parties
Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) 1 lit. f. GDPR), we make use of content or services offered by third-party providers in order to provide their content and services, such as Include videos or fonts (collectively referred to as „content“). This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also referred to as „web beacons“) for statistical or marketing purposes. The „pixel tags“ can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may include, but is not limited to, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring web sites, visit time, and other information regarding the use of our online offer.
The following presentation provides an overview of third-party providers as well as their contents, as well as links to their data protection statements, which contain further information on the processing of data and, for already mentioned here, contradictory possibilities (so-called opt-out) contain:
– If our customers use the payment services of third parties (for example, PayPal or Sofortüberweisung), the terms and conditions and the privacy notices of the respective third party, which are available within the respective websites, or transactional applications.
