In this context, we would like to point out that there is the possibility of user data being processed outside of the European Union, in particular in the USA. This may pose increased risks to users in that, for example, it may be more difficult to access user data at a later date. We also do not have access to this user data as access lies exclusively with Pinterest.
We maintain an online presence on YouTube to present our company and services and to communicate with customers/interested parties. YouTube is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA.
In this context, we would like to point out that there is the possibility of user data being processed outside of the European Union, in particular in the USA. This may pose increased risks to users in that, for example, it may be more difficult to access user data at a later date. We also do not have access to this user data as access lies exclusively with YouTube.
To advertise our products and services and to communicate with interested parties or customers, we operate a company presence on the Facebook platform.
On this social media platform, we are jointly responsible with Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.
Facebook's data protection officer can be reached via contact form:
We have regulated this joint responsibility in an agreement regarding respective obligations based on GDPR terms. This agreement, from which mutual obligations arise, can be accessed at this link:
The legal basis for the processing of personal data that thereby takes place and is reproduced below is Art. 6, 1f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is in the analysis, communication and sales and promotion of our products and services.
Legal basis may also be the user's consent pursuant to Art. 6, 1a GDPR vis-à-vis the platform operator. The user can withdraw this consent for the future any time by notifying the platform operator in accordance with Art. 7 (3) GDPR.
When accessing our online presence on the Facebook platform, user data (e.g. personal information, IP address, etc.) is processed by Facebook Ireland Ltd. as platform operator in the EU.
This user data is used for statistical information about use of our company presence on Facebook. Facebook Ireland Ltd. uses this data for market research and advertising purposes and to create user profiles. Based on these profiles, it is possible for Facebook Ireland Ltd., for example, to advertise to users within and outside of Facebook according to their interests. If the user is logged into his Facebook account at the time of access, Facebook Ireland Ltd. can link this data to the respective user account.
In the event that users contact us via Facebook, the user's personal data entered on this occasion will be used to process the request. The user's data will be deleted by us, provided the user's inquiry has been conclusively answered and there are no legal retention obligations to the contrary, such as in cases of subsequent contract processing.
In order to process the data, Facebook Ireland Ltd. may also set cookies.
If the user does not agree to this processing, it is possible to prevent cookie installation by setting the browser accordingly. Cookies that have already been stored can be deleted any time. The settings for this depend on the respective browser. In the case of Flash cookies, processing cannot be prevented via browser settings, but by corresponding Flash player settings. If the user prevents or restricts cookie installation, this may mean that not all Facebook can be fully used.
It is not excluded that the processing by Facebook Ireland Ltd. is also carried out via Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025 in the USA.
Linking social media via graphic or text link
We also advertise our presence on social media listed below on our website. Integration takes place via linked graphic of the respective social media. Using this linked graphic prevents a connection to the respective social media server from being automatically established when a website featuring social media advertisement is opened. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic will the user be redirected to the service of the respective social media.
After the user has been forwarded, user information is collected by the respective social media. It cannot be ruled out that processing of data collected via this channel is carried out in the USA.
Initially this is data such as IP address, date, time and page visited. If the user is logged into his social media user account at this time, the operator may be able to assign collected data regarding the user’s specific visit to his/her personal account. If the user interacts via "share" button of the respective social media, this information can be stored in the user's personal account and may be published. If the user wants to prevent collected data from being directly assigned to his/her user account, he/she must log out before clicking on the graphic. In addition, it is possible to configure the respective user account accordingly.
The following social networks are integrated into our site by linking:

Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA.
"Facebook" social plug-in"
On our website, we use Facebook’s social media plug-in. Facebook is an internet service of Meta Platforms, Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. In the EU, this service is in turn operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland, subsequently both referred to as "Facebook".
Legal basis is Art. 6, 1 f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the quality improvement of our website.
Facebook provides further information about possible plug-ins and their respective functions at
If the plug-in is stored on one of the pages of our website you visit, your internet browser downloads a representation of the plug-in from Facebook's servers in the USA. For technical reasons, it is necessary for Facebook to process your IP address. In addition, date and time of your visit on our website are also recorded.
If you are logged in to Facebook while visiting one of our web pages featuring a plug-in, data it collects regarding your specific visit will be recognized by Facebook. Facebook may assign data thus collected your personal user account. If, for example, you use the so-called "Like" Facebook button, this data will be stored in your Facebook user account and possibly published via its platform. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of Facebook before visiting our website or prevent the Facebook plug-in from loading by using an add-on for your internet browser.
We use Google Analytics on our website. This is a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, subsequently referred to as "Google".
Google Analytics service is used to analyze the usage of our website. Legal basis is Art. 6, 1 f GDPR. Our legitimate interests lie in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.
Usage and user-related data, such as IP address, location, time or frequency of visits to our website, is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function. Through this function, Google shortens the IP address within the EU or EEA.
Data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of visits to our website including usage activities. This data may also be used to provide other services related to use of our website and internet use in general.
Google states that it will not associate your IP address with any other data. In addition, Google keeps a record of your IP address at
Google provides you with further information on data protection law, including information on how to prevent the use of your data.
In addition, Google offers a website with further information at
On our website, we use Google Maps to display our location and for giving directions. This service is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, subsequently referred to as "Google".
To enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established when you access our website.
If you open the Google Maps component integrated into our website, Google stores a cookie on your device via your internet browser. In order to display our location and give directions, your user settings and data are processed. Here, we cannot exclude that Google uses servers in the USA.
Legal basis is Art. 6, 1f GDPR. Our legitimate interests lie in optimizing our website’s functionality.
This connection allows Google to determine from which website your request was sent and to which IP address directions are to be transmitted.
If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing cookie installation by means of the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. Details can be found above under the item "Cookies".
We use Google Fonts on our website to display external fonts. This service is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, subsequently referred to as "Google".

YouTube is a subsidiary of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, subsequently referred to as "Google".
We use YouTube with the "Enhanced Privacy Mode" function in order to be able to show you videos. Legal basis is Art. 6, 1f GDPR. Our legitimate interests lie in improving the quality of our website. According to YouTube, the "enhanced data protection mode" function means that the data described in detail below is only transmitted to YouTube’s server when you actually start a video.
Without this "Enhanced Privacy Mode", a connection to YouTube’s server in the USA is established as soon as you open one of our website with an embedded YouTube video.
This connection is necessary in order to be able to display the respective video on our website via your Internet browser. YouTube will at least record and process your IP address, the date and time, as well as the website you visited in course of this. In addition, a connection to Google's advertising network "DoubleClick" is established.
If you are logged in to YouTube, YouTube will assign the connection data to your YouTube account. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of YouTube before visiting our website or make the appropriate settings in your YouTube user account.
For functionality purposes as well as for user behaviour analyses, YouTube permanently stores cookies on your device via your Internet browser.

Google Ads with conversion tracking
On our website, we use the advertising component Google Ads with so-called conversion tracking. This service is provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, subsequently referred to as "Google".
We use conversion tracking for targeted advertising of our offers. Legal basis is Art. 6, 1 f GDPR. Our legitimate interests lie in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.
If you click on an ad placed by Google our conversion tracking stores a cookie on your device. These so-called conversion cookies become invalid after 30 days and do not identify you personally.
If the cookie is valid and you visit a specific page on our website, both we and Google can evaluate that you clicked on one of our Google ads that redirected you to our website.
Google uses thus obtained data to provide us with statistics about visits to our website. In addition, this provides us with data about the number of users who clicked on our ad(s) to subsequently access our website pages. However, neither we nor third parties also using Google AdWords are able to identify you in this way.
You can prevent or restrict cookie installation by using the according settings in your internet browser. You can also delete already stored cookies any time. Necessary steps and measures depend on your specific Internet browser. If you have any questions, please use the help function or your internet browser history or contact its manufacturer or support.

Google Remarketing or "Similar Target Groups" Component from Google
We use the remarketing or "similar target groups" function on our website. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, subsequently referred to as "Google".
We use this function to display interest-based, personalized advertising on third-party websites also participating in Google's advertising network.
Legal basis is Art. 6, 1f GDPR. Our legitimate interests lie in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.
In order to enable this advertising service, Google stores a cookie with a number sequence on your device during your visit to our website via your internet browser.

Legal basis is Art. 6, 1f GDPR. Our legitimate interests lie in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website.
If you click on one of our ads placed on internet search engine "Bing", Microsoft stores a cookie for tracking functionality on your device via your internet browser. This tracking cookie becomes invalid after 180 days and is not used for your personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website when the cookie is still active, both Microsoft and we can recognize you clicked on an advertisement placed by us on Bing and have been redirected to our website.
Microsoft uses the data collected by tracking cookies to create visitor statistics for us. We thus receive data about the number of visits in reference to our advertisements on Bing as well as which of our website pages were accessed. However, we do not receive data allowing us to identify you personally.
In addition, Microsoft may be able to track your user behaviour across multiple devices via cross-device tracking. This enables Microsoft to show you personalized advertising across devices.
