Promotional Services

The PCG uses cookies, pixel tags and similar technology for promotional and marketing purposes.

The data we collect in this way is anonymous to us; we do not see personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook and Facebook may use it for its own promotional purposes outlined here: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy. You can object to the collection of your data by Facebook pixel or object to the use of your data for the purpose of displaying Facebook ads by contacting the following address: https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen.

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus guarantees compliance with European data protection legislation: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active.

The PCG uses the marketing and remarketing services of Google LLC (“Google”). These services allow us to advertise in a more targeted manner to website visitors and those whose information is similar to website visitors on other websites within the Google network. For these purposes, a code is used by Google when our website is accessed and what are referred to as (re)marketing tags are incorporated into the website. This service uses a cookie or comparable technology. Cookies can be set by various domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. This file records which apps users have visited, which content they are interested in and which offers have been used. In addition, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites or applications, the length of the visit as well as any additional data about the use of the online products and services are stored.

All user data will only be processed as pseudonymous data. Google does not store any names or e-mail addresses. All displayed ads are therefore not displayed specifically for a person, but for the owner of the cookie.

One of the Google marketing services we use is the online advertising program Google AdWords. In the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords customer receives a different conversion cookie. Cookies therefore cannot be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected by the cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. AdWords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information that personally identifies users.

We may include third-party advertisements based on the Google Marketing Service called DoubleClick. DoubleClick uses cookies to enable Google and its partner websites to place ads based on users’ visits to this website or other websites on the Internet.

Google services make use of Google’s Tag Manager. For more information about Google’s use of data for marketing purposes, please see the summary page: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads. Google’s privacy policy is available at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

If you wish to object to interest-based advertising by Google marketing services, you can do so using the settings and opt-out options provided by Google at http://www.google.com/ads/preferences.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus guarantees its compliance with European data protection legislation: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active.
