7.4 Targeting cookies

7.4.1 The Facebook Pixel

This website uses the “Facebook Pixel”, offered by the social network Facebook, which is registered in Europe as Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

The Facebook Pixel initiates the processing of personal data by Facebook and enables the social network to identify users across all websites that use the Pixel — but only if those users have accounts with Facebook and log in to those accounts. This tracking procedure allows us to run advertising on Facebook and its affiliate services that is target-group-oriented and as such more relevant to the users. Our legitimate interest, as required by data protection laws, is to reach primarily existing customers, suppliers and current business partners.

The Facebook Pixel stores a cookie on your device when you access our website. If you are logged in to Facebook at the same time or subsequently log in to Facebook, the visit of this website will be noted in your Facebook profile. The Pixel collects Http headers (including data such as IP addresses, information about the web browser and page location), data about the Pixel itself as well as the Facebook cookie, button click data, form field names, and custom data events defined by us.

That information is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and can be used for market research and advertising purposes.

To prevent your personal data from being collected through the Facebook Pixel via this website, users can click this link.

Facebook processes the data in accordance with Facebook's Data Usage Policy.

For more information and details about the Facebook Pixel and how it works, please visit the Facebook Help Section.

7.4.2 The LinkedIn Insight Tag

This website uses the “LinkedIn Insight Tag”, offered by social network LinkedIn, registered in Europe as LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland ("LinkedIn"). The Insight Tag causes a cookie which is a tiny text file to be placed in your web browser when you visit this website. The Insight Tag is integrated into this website and enables LinkedIn to collect on our behalf data such as URL, referrer, IP address, device and browser characteristics, timestamp, and page views. If you are a LinkedIn member, demographic information, such as your approximate location, may also be collected. The cookie stored by the Insight Tag in your web browser remains there until you manually delete it or until it is automatically deleted after loading the Insight Tag for the last time.

This tracking procedure allows us to run advertising on LinkedIn that is target-group-oriented and as such more relevant to the users. Our legitimate interest, as required by data protection laws, is to reach primarily existing customers, suppliers, and current business partners. Furthermore, LinkedIn can compile statistics with aggregated data about the use and visit of our website.

To prevent your personal data from being collected through the LinkedIn Insight Tag via this website, you can prevent the storage of cookies in the settings of your web browser altogether. Alternatively, you can specifically object to the LinkedIn Insight Tag by setting an opt-out cookie that remains on your device until you delete your cookies. You can do so using this link.
