Use of the Snap Pixel

We use the so-called "Snap Pixel" of the social network Snapchat, which is operated by Snap Inc., Market Street, Venice, CA 90291, USA ("Snapchat"), to analyze and optimize our website and services.

By means of the Snap pixel, it is possible for Snapchat, on the one hand, to determine the visitors to our website as a target group for the display of ads (so-called "Snapchat ads"). Accordingly, we use the Snapchat pixel to display the Snapchat ads placed by us only to those Snapchat users who have also shown an interest in our website or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Snapchat (so-called "Custom Audiences"). With the help of the Snap Pixel, we also want to ensure that our Snapchat ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect. By means of the Snap Pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of the Snapchat ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Snapchat ad (so-called "conversion").

The processing of data by Snapchat takes place within the framework of Snapchat's data privacy policy, which can be accessed here: https://www.snap.com/en-US/privacy/privacy-center/. The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 (1) a GDPR. We only use the cookies required for this service (so-called marketing cookies) with your consent.
