Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the data controller is called up, on which a Google AdSense component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject's information technology system is automatically triggered by the respective Google AdSense component to transmit data to Alphabet Inc. for the purpose of online advertising and commission accounting. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Alphabet Inc. obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Alphabet Inc. uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in Internet pages to enable log file recording and log file analysis, whereby a statistical evaluation can be performed. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Alphabet Inc. may see if and when a website was opened by a data subject, and which links were clicked by the data subject. Among other things, tracking pixels are used to evaluate the flow of visitors to a website.
Through Google AdSense, personal data and information, which also includes the IP address and is necessary for the collection and billing of the displayed advertisements, are transferred to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may disclose this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.
