    Through the integration of Google AdSense, we pursue the purpose of being able to offer you interest-based advertisements, and to be able to finance our offer through the successful use of advertising media. For this, we are using the option “contextual-only advertisements” from Google AdSense. This means that Google will broadcast advertisements based on the content of our website and not on the interest profile created by you. Therefore, an analysis of your data for the purpose of profiling does not take place here. However, Google also uses cookies and web beacons in the scope of the “contextual-only advertisements” to prevent abuse, compile statistics, and prevent multiple visits.

    For this purpose, reCAPTCHA (No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA) displays a clickable checkbox “I’m not a robot” to you. To do so, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of a user as soon as they visit the website based on different characteristics. If necessary, you will also be shown various images after clicking on the checkbox, which you have to assign to a given image subject by clicking on the relevant images.

  16. 16. Header bidding

    On our website, we use the java script “prebid.js” from Prebid.org. This is an open source project, which enables us to start bidding requests on advertising platforms for advertising space provided by us.

    We provide advertising space on our website (e.g. areas on our website where banners can be displayed), which we would like to offer at the best possible conditions. In order to ensure this, the java script “prebid.js”, which is integrated by us, “asks” our header bidders (cf. below) if they would like to make an offer on our advertising spaces. The header bidder with the best bid wins the bid and the corresponding advertising material (advertisement) is displayed on our website.

    The header bidders inquired by us might, in the scope of the bidding process, receive information (including personal data) from you, and set cookies on your device in order to broadcast advertising material and enable the identification of your device.

    The legal basis for the processing of personal data as described above is art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. By being able to display advertisements via the so-called header bidding to our users, we finance our offer and are able to continue doing so for you.

    In each case, we are active as “publishers”, thus providing advertising space for others on our website.

    The legal basis for the processing of personal data as described above is art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. By being able to display personalized advertising to users, we can optimize our marketing and let it play out in a targeted manner. This is also the purpose of the integration.
