1. Scope of personal data processing
We only collect and use personal data of our users insofar necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services. If this is not the case, personal data will only be used with the consent of the user on a regular basis. An exception applies in such cases where prior consent cannot possibly be obtained and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
2. Legal basis of processing
Insofar as we obtain the consent of personal data of the affected individual for the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(a) of the Basic EU Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will serve as the legal basis. For the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract, of which the data subject is a part, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another individual requires the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to protect a justified interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Article 6(1)(f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the performance of our business activities.
3. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
WERDER processes and stores the personal data of the data subject only for as long as it is necessary for storage purposes. Furthermore, data may be stored insofar as this has been specified by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other rules to which the person responsible for the processing is subject. As soon as the storage purpose ceases to apply or a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned regulations expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or deleted.
4. Security of your data
We take all reasonable technical and organizational precautions to protect your information. All webpages that request sensitive information from you are encrypted before being transmitted to us. This provides the best possible protection against unauthorized access.
1. Log Files
When you visit a page of our website, by default our web server collects the name of the retrieved file, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred, and any error messages.
The following data may be collected:
The processing of data serves to deliver the content of our website, in order to guarantee the functionality of our information technology systems and to optimize our website. The data of the log files are always stored separately from other personal data of the users.
How can I prevent the storage of cookies?
You can configure your browser so that it accepts cookies only with your permission. Any remaining cookies can be deleted. However, disabling cookies may limit the functionality of our website. Instructions on how to disable cookies are available at Link.
3. Google Services
(Google Analytics, Google Universal Analytics, and Google DoubleClick)
a) Google Tools for Analyzing Usage Behavior with Pseudonymous Identifiers
To make the use of our webpages more comfortable for our customers, our site uses the analytics and advertising tools Google Analytics (including the Universal Analytics features) and DoubleClick by Google, created by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 ("Google").
b) How Do the Tools Work?
Google Analytics uses "cookies" (see Section 1), which are stored on your computer. These cookies enable us to analyze your use of our website.
Universal Analytics allows us to analyze activities on our websites across devices (for example, if you access our site by computer and later by smartphone). It does so by assigning a pseudonym to the user, rather than to the device. The pseudonym is a "User ID," a unique sequence of numbers that is not personally identifiable. You are assigned a User ID when you register at werder.de or when you log into your existing customer account. Google only receives the User ID and the usage data associated with the User ID. As a result, it impossible to attribute the usage data to a specific person.
c) What Happens to My Information?
The information collected by these applications is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities, and to provide us, as the website operator, with additional services related to website and Internet usage. Google does not merge the information transmitted from your browser in connection with these Google services with any other data. In order to enhance the protection of your information, we use Google Analytics and Universal Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp().” This extension processes IP addresses only in an abbreviated form to prevent any of your information from being traced directly to you.
d) How Can I Prevent My Information from Being Collected and Processed?
By using our website, you agree to have information collected and processed by Google in the manner and for the purposes described here. However, you may opt out of the collection and/or processing of your information at any time with future effect:
You can prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting the relevant settings on your browser. However, please be advised that if you opt out of using cookies, you may not be able to use all of the features of this website.
You can also prevent your information from being collected by Google Analytics and Universal Analytics and then transmitted to Google for processing. To do so, download and install the browser plugin available at Link
You can deactivate DoubleClick cookies by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at Link in the section on the DoubleClick deactivation add-on. Alternatively, you can deactivate DoubleClick cookies on the Digital Advertising Alliance website, Link
4. Google AdWords Conversion Tracking
In order to evaluate and optimize our online advertising, our website uses the "conversion tracking" feature of the advertising program Google AdWords. This feature lets us identify whether users access our website through Google ads and, if so, how many users access us this way. When you click on a Google ad, Google places a "conversion cookie" on your device. This cookie has a 30-day "lifetime." If a user accesses one of our webpages through our Google ad within these 30 days, Google identifies which ad brought the visitor to our site and shares this information with us. Personal information that could be used to identify individual visitors is not collected. We only receive a statistical analysis of the total number of users who clicked on our ads and were directed to our site.

You can opt out of conversion cookies, and therefore prevent conversion tracking, by:

6. Facebook - Pixel
With the given consent, which you have confirmed by clicking the following button when visiting our website:
We use another conversion - tracking - tool, Facebook - pixels, a service of the,
1601 S. California Ave,
With this service, we as well as Facebook can keep track of the user’s actions after they have clicked on a Facebook advertisement. This way, we can analyze the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and marketing research purposes with the aim of optimizing advertisement activities.
The collected data is kept anonymously which means we cannot trace the identity of the user. However, the data will be saved by Facebook, so Facebook can bring a connection between the advertisement and the user profile. Facebook will use this information for their advertisement purposes, according to the Facebook record usage policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy)/). You can allow Facebook as well as their partner organizations the display of advertisements on and off of the Facebook page. A cookie can be installed on your computer for this purpose.
We only implement a Facebook pixel with your personal consent. This consent for implementing the custom audience pixel can only be given by users who are older than 13 years. In case you are younger than 13 years, we kindly request you to ask your legal guardian for their consent. You can revoke your consent any time.

Parts of our website may include Share buttons for the social networking sites Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ ("networks"). The Share buttons can be identified by the Share icon, which is displayed next to the word "SHARE." When you click on this button, icons for the three networks appear.

If you are logged into the relevant network at the same time, the visit to our website can be associated with your account. If you want to prevent this association, you should log out of the network before clicking on the Share button.
