The retargeting technologies make it possible to approach internet users, having already shown interest for our shop and our products, again with advertisements on afterwards visited websites of third parties. This advertisement is often aligned to the sites visited before (Art. 6 (1) b), f) GDPR). Our legitimate interest is the improvement of the performance of our advertisement means and the targeted readdressing of you as person interested in our performances and products. Fading in such advertisement means on the websites of third parties is carried out on the basis of a cookie technology and an analysis of the previous user habit. This way of advertisement is implemented completely anonymously, because we do not get to know anything of the communication of your browser with the servers of the retargeting provider.

When you would like to get to know more about the configuration capabilities for interest-related advertising, we recommend to have a look at the following websites of online advertising initiatives:
8. Fingerprinting and cross device tracking – intelliAD
This website uses the Fingerprinting and the Cross Device Tracking technology of intelliAd Media GmbH, Sendlinger Str. 7, 80331 München (Munich), Germany (“intelliAd”).
The fingerprinting is used when you visit our website by calling up our website via a link (e. g. even a link in an ad banner). Fingerprinting enables us the statistic analysis as the legitimate intertest, which links have been especially useful for our customers. There will be no analysis for the individual person. Implementing the fingerprinting for the first time, the working memory of the IntelliAd servers will store your complete IP-address and the user agent information of your browser will be converted in a mathematical value, a so called hash value, thus the information is encrypted. In addition, the same procedure is carried out on our server. The both created and identical hash values are aligned and replaced by a user identifier, which will also be used directly in later sessions (Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR). Afterwards, IP-address and user agent information will be erased out of the working memory of the IntelliAd server. It is not possible to recalculate out of the hash value, so from this point of time on, no personal data is processed anymore. The user identifier will be created at your first visit by chance. In case you later on log in the shop from another device, the user identifier is the same as the already existing. The user identifier will be stored as a cookie on your devices, with which you visit our website, and after a login in our shop in order to enable us to allocate your activities with your device at a new visit to the original link, with which you had visited our website before (Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR). Our legitimate interest is the statistical evaluation for the optimization of our offers.
The user identifier is also used with the simultaneously used technology of cross device tracking, for which the cookie technology is used, as well. After you have logged in on a device, it is analyzed whether a user identifier to your customer database already exists in order to store the same user identifier on all your devices into the cookie. Then we forward the so called user identifier, an IntelliAd, in order to enable IntelliAd to allocate your activities to the original link in the meaning of the afore described fingerprinting, which corresponds to our legitimate interest for accurate statistics and thereby the gapless evaluation of our marketing campaigns, (art. 6 (1) f GDPR). Our user identifier does not contain information which would enable IntelliAd to identify your person precisely (so called hash function). IntelliAd does not store complete IP-addresses of you, so the IntelliAd procedure is anonymous. IntelliAd stores the produced data in the form summarized in groups. We obtain a statistical analysis by IntelliAd, for which creation IntelliAd summarizes group data. Thus, we cannot realise with reference to your person, how you have used our shop and websites of third parties with your devices. We may quote from the statistics how we can improve our offer in case of use of various devices or for various groups of customers. IntelliAd uses multi-level encryption for the storage of the user identifier and the used cookies will be erased from your browser after 6 months.
In both procedures, the same user identifier is used.
To object against the storage of the (anonymously collected) visitor data, please use the IntelliAd opt-out function:LINK
