4.3 WhatsApp business

We offer visitors to our website the opportunity to contact us via the WhatsApp messaging service of WhatsApp Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. For this we use the so-called "Business Version" of WhatsApp.

If you contact us via WhatsApp on the occasion of a specific transaction (e.g. an order placed), we will save and use the mobile phone number you use on WhatsApp and - if provided - your first and last name in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b. DSGVO for processing and answering your request. On the same legal basis, we may ask you via WhatsApp to provide additional data (order number, customer number, address or e-mail address) in order to be able to assign your request to a specific transaction.

Sending the e-mail newsletter to existing customers

According to Section 7 (3) UWG, we do not have to obtain your separate consent for this. In this respect, data processing takes place solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalized direct advertising in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. If you initially objected to the use of your e-mail address for this purpose, we will not send you an e-mail. You are entitled to object to the use of your e-mail address for the aforementioned advertising purpose at any time with effect for the future by notifying the person responsible named at the beginning. You only incur transmission costs for this according to the basic tariffs. After receipt of your objection, the use of your e-mail address for advertising purposes will be stopped immediately.

6) Online Marketing

Facebook pixel for creating custom audiences with advanced data matching (without cookie consent tool)
Within our online offer, the so-called "Facebook Pixel" of the social network Facebook is used in the mode of extended data comparison, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook").
On the basis of their express consent, if a user clicks on an advertisement placed by us on Facebook, the URL of our linked page will be appended by Facebook Pixel. After forwarding, this URL parameter is then written to the user's browser via cookie, which our linked page sets itself. In addition, specific customer data such as the e-mail address, which we collect on our website linked to the Facebook ad for transactions such as purchases, account logins or registrations, is recorded by this cookie (extended data comparison). The cookie is then read by the Facebook pixel and enables the data, including specific customer data, to be forwarded to Facebook.
With the help of the Facebook pixel with extended data comparison, Facebook is able to precisely determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel with extended data synchronization in order to only display the Facebook ads we have placed to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products that are determined based on the websites visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”). With the help of the Facebook pixel with extended data comparison, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the user and are not annoying. This allows us to further evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by understanding whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion"). Compared to the standard version of Facebook Pixel, the advanced data matching feature helps us to better measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns by recording more attributed conversions.
All transmitted data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook uses the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook data usage guidelines (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/) can use. The data can enable Facebook and its partners to place advertisements on and outside of Facebook.
These processing operations only take place if you have given your express consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
Consent to the use of the Facebook pixel may only be given by users who are older than 13 years of age. If you are younger, we ask that you ask your legal guardian for permission.
The information generated by Facebook is usually transmitted to a Facebook server and stored there. This can also result in transmission to the Facebook Inc. servers in the USA. You can revoke your consent at any time by deactivating Facebook pixel tracking. For this purpose, you can set an opt-out cookie by clicking on the link below, which deactivates Facebook pixel tracking:
Disable Facebook pixel
This opt-out cookie only works in this browser and only for this domain. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must click the link above again.
