10.2 Use of payment service providers (payment services)

- Apple Pay
If you choose the payment method „Apple Pay“ of Apple Distribution International (Apple), Hollyhill Industrial Estate, Hollyhill, Cork, Ireland, the payment will be processed via the „Apple Pay“ function of your iOS, watchOS or macOS-operated terminal device by debiting a payment card deposited with „Apple Pay“. Apple Pay uses security features integrated into the hardware and software of your device to protect your transactions. To authorize a payment, it is therefore necessary to enter a code previously defined by you and to verify it using the „Face ID“ or „Touch ID“ function of your device.
For the purpose of payment processing, the information you provide during the ordering process, along with information about your order, is passed on to Apple in encrypted form. Apple then re-encrypts this data with a developer-specific key before the data is transmitted to the payment service provider of the payment card stored in Apple Pay for payment processing. The encryption ensures that only the website through which the purchase was made can access the payment data. After the payment has been made, Apple will send your device account number and a transaction-specific dynamic security code to the originating website to confirm the payment. If personal data is processed during the described transmissions, the processing is carried out exclusively for the purpose of handling payments in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter b GDPR.
Apple retains anonymized transaction information, including the approximate amount of the purchase, the approximate date and time, and whether the transaction was completed successfully. Anonymization completely eliminates the possibility of personal identification. Apple uses the anonymized data to improve „Apple Pay“ and other Apple products and services.
When you use Apple Pay on iPhone or the Apple Watch to complete a purchase made through Safari on Mac, the Mac and the authorization device communicate through an encrypted channel on Apple’s servers. Apple does not process or store this information in a format that can identify you personally. You can disable the ability to use Apple Pay on your Mac in your iPhone preferences. Go to „Wallet & Apple Pay“, and disable „Allow payments on Mac“.

For all transactions via Google Pay, Google acts merely as an intermediary to process the payment process. The transaction is carried out exclusively in the relationship between the user and the source website by debiting the means of payment deposited with Google Pay.
If personal data is processed during the described transmissions, the processing is carried out exclusively for the purpose of handling payments in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 letter b GDPR.
Google reserves the right to collect, store and evaluate certain transaction-specific information for each transaction made via Google Pay. This includes the date, time and amount of the transaction, the merchant’s location and description, a description provided by the merchant of the goods or services purchased, photos that you attached to the transaction, the name and email address of the seller and buyer or the sender and recipient, the payment method used, your description of the reason for the transaction and, if applicable, the offer associated with the transaction.
. According to Google, this processing takes place exclusively in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of the legitimate interest in proper accounting, verification of transaction data and the optimization and functional maintenance of the Google Pay service.

Use of Youtube videos

This website uses the Youtube embedding feature to display and play videos from the provider „Youtube“, which is part of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland („Google“).

The extended data protection mode is used here, which, according to the provider, only starts storing user information when the video(s) are played. If the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider „YouTube“ uses cookies to collect information about user behavior. According to information from „Youtube“, these serve, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive behaviour. If you are logged in to Google, your information is associated directly with your account when you click on a video. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as user profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of Google’s legitimate interests in the insertion of personalized advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right. In the course of using YouTube, personal data may also be transferred to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. Regardless of any playback of the embedded videos, each time this website is accessed, a connection to the Google network is established, which may trigger further data processing operations without our influence.

For further information on data protection at „YouTube“, please refer to the provider’s privacy policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy

In so far as legally required, we have obtained your consent for the above processing of your data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. In order to exercise your revocation, deactivate this service in the „Cookie-Consent-Tool“ provided on the website.

13) Online marketing

13.1 Facebook pixels for the creation of custom audiences with advanced data synchronization (with Cookie-Content-Tool)
Within our online offer the so-called „Facebook pixel“ of the social network Facebook is used in the mode of extended data synchronization, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland („Facebook“).
Based on his or her express consent, when a user clicks on an advertisement placed by us on Facebook, an addition is added to the URL of our linked page by Facebook pixels. This URL parameter is then written into the user’s browser by a cookie that is set by our linked site itself. In addition, this cookie records specific customer data such as the e-mail address that we collect on our website linked to the Facebook ad during transactions such as purchase transactions, account logins or registrations (extended data reconciliation). The cookie is then read by Facebook Pixel and enables the data, including the specific customer data, to be forwarded to Facebook.
With the help of the Facebook pixel with extended data synchronization, Facebook is able to precisely determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the presentation of ads (so-called „Facebook ads“) on the one hand. Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel with extended data synchronization to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offering or who exhibit certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called „custom audiences“). With the help of the Facebook pixel with extended data matching, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and are not annoying. This allows us to further evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by tracking whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called „conversion“). Compared to the standard Facebook pixel version, the advanced data matching feature helps us better measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns by capturing more assigned conversions.
