Meta and we are jointly responsible for the collection of your data and the transfer of this data to Meta when the service is integrated. The basis for this is an agreement between us and Meta on the joint processing of personal data, in which the respective responsibilities are defined. The agreement is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/legal/terms/businesstools. According to this agreement, we are responsible in particular for the fulfilment of the information obligations in accordance with Arts 13 and 14 GDPR, for compliance with the security requirements of Art. 32 GDPR with regard to the correct technical implementation and configuration of the service, and for compliance with the obligations in accordance with Arts 33 and 34 GDPR, insofar as a violation of the protection of personal data affects our obligations under the agreement on joint processing.

The application serves to address the visitor to the website with interest-related advertising on the social networks Facebook and Instagram. We have implemented Meta’s remarketing tag on our website for this purpose. This tag sets up a direct connection to Meta’s servers when you visit our website. This informs the Meta server which of our web pages you have visited. Meta assigns this information to your personal Facebook and/or Instagram user account. When you visit the social networks Facebook or Instagram, you will then be shown personalised, interest-related ads.
The application also serves the purpose of creating conversion statistics.

Use of the Pinterest tag
We use the Pinterest tag of Pinterest Europe Limited (Palmerston House, 2nd, Fenian Street, Floor, Dublin 2, Ireland "Pinterest") on our website.
The application serves to address the visitor to the website with interest-related advertising on the social network Pinterest. We have implemented Pinterest’s conversion tag on our website for this purpose. This tag sets up a direct connection to Pinterest’s servers when you visit our website. This informs the Pinterest server which of our web pages you have visited. Pinterest associates this information with your personal Pinterest user account if you are logged into the social network. When you visit Pinterest, you will then be shown personalised, interest-related Pinterest ads. If you reach our website via a Pin on the Pinterest social network, a cookie for conversion tracking is placed on your computer. These cookies have limited validity, do not contain any personal data and thus cannot be used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our site and the cookie has not expired, we and Pinterest may recognise that you have clicked the Pin and been directed to that page. The information collected using the conversion cookie serves the purpose of producing conversion statistics and thereby optimising our website. These can involve the processing of, among other things, the following information: Total number of users who clicked one of our Pins and were redirected to our website, subpages visited on our website (e.g. category or product pages), search queries on our website, your shopping cart contents, completed transactions.
Your data may be transmitted to the USA. For the USA, there is an adequacy decision of the EU Commission, the Trans-Atlantic Data Privacy Framework (TADPF). Pinterest is not certified under the TAPF.
