INDIVIDUAL ADVERTISING (retargeting)
In order to make online marketing more customer-oriented, we use retargeting technology on our website. This means that we store pseudonym data regarding, for example, which products you viewed or what type of products you put in your shopping basket or your list. In this way we are able to send or show you advertising of interest to you, such as newsletters and product recommendations that correspond to your areas of interest. Retargeting advertising is displayed using a cookie-based analysis of the previous user behavior. No personal data is stored during this process.

USE OF FACEBOOK SOCIAL PLUGINS
This Offer uses social plugins ("Plugins") of the facebook.com social network, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). Plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos (a white "f" on a blue tile or a "thumbs-up" sign) or are marked "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be found at: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins.
Through the integration of Plugins, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding page of the Offer. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can connect the visit at the website with your Facebook account. When you interact with the Plugins, for example if you click on the Like button or write a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted by your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, the possibility still exists that Facebook can find out your IP address and store it.
The purpose and scope of data collection and subsequent processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the corresponding rights and possibilities of settings for protecting privacy of the user can be found in the Facebook data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
