Facebook Remarketing

Our website uses the visitor action pixel from Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook") for conversion measurement. Facebook Inc. is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement, which ensures the compliance of US companies with European data protection standards.

With the visitor action pixel, the behaviour of site visitors can be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider's website by clicking on a Facebook advertisement, and site visitors who log onto Facebook are shown the provider’s advertisements. As a result, the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements can be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures optimised.

The use of the visitor action pixel and the associated tracking is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. As website operator, we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both our website and our advertising.

The collected data is anonymous to us as the operator of this website; we cannot draw conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s data policy. As a result, Facebook can enable advertisements to be displayed on Facebook and outside of Facebook. This use of data cannot be influenced by us as the site operator. Further information about the protection of your privacy can be found in Facebook’s data policy:

You can also disable the remarketing "Custom Audiences" feature in the Ads Settings section at If you do not have a Facebook account, you can opt out of use-based advertising from Facebook on the website of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance:
