Web analytics service Google Analytics / Universal Analytics
Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files, which are saved on the computer of the user, and which facilitate an analysis of the website use. The information generated by the cookie regarding the use of this website are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it is saved. When activating the IP anonymisation on this website, the IP-address of the user however, is truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other contractual states of the treaty regarding the European Economic Area.
The full IP-address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it is truncated only in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use these information to evaluate the use of the website for compiling reports on the website activities, and render further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP-address transmitted from the user browser in the outline of Google Analytics is not merged with other data by Google. The user is able to impede that the cookies are saved with a corresponding setting in the browser software. However, Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH indicates that in this case possibly not all functions of this website can be entirely used.
Furthermore, Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH uses Google Analytics reports for recording demographic characteristics and interests.

In addition, the user can prevent recording of the data produced by the cookie and use of the data referring to the use of the website (incl. your IP-address) by Google, as well as processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the following link in the browser plug-in: Link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
Alternative to the browser plug-in or within browsers on mobile devices, the following link is valid for placing an opt-out cookie, which will impede in future recording by Google Analytics within this website (this opt-out cookie does only function in this browser and only for this domain, deleting the cookies in this browser, click again on the link): <a href=”javascript:gaOptout()”>Google Analytics disable</a>

Information regarding the incorporation of the opt-out cookie can be found via the following link: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/?hl=de#disable
Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH points out that the website Google Analytics is used with the extension “_anonymizeIp()” and the IP-addresses therefore are processed only in a truncated way precluding any direct personal identification.

Web analysis service Matomo (previously PIWIK)
On this website data are gathered and stored using the web analysis service software Matomo (www.matomo.org) for marketing and optimisation purposes. From these data user profiles are created using a pseudonym, for which cookies are used. Cookies are small text files, which are locally saved in the cache of the site user’s web browser. The cookies facilitate recognition of the web browser. The data collected with the Matomo technology (including your anonymised IP-address) are transmitted to the server of Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH and are stored for purposes of analysing usage, which is important for the website optimisation by Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH. The information generated by the cookie in the pseudonym user profile are not used to personally identify the user of this website, and are not merged with person-related data from the carrier of this pseudonym. In case the user does not agree with storage and evaluation of this data from the visit to the website from Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH, and wishes to disagree in future, the user can impede use of cookies and therefore the participation in tracking. For this purpose the user can set his browser such that the user becomes notified about cookies being established, and can individually decide acceptance or to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally. In case of not accepting cookies the function of the website Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH can be restricted.

Web Analytics Service DoubleClick
In the context of using Google Analytics this website utilises the web analytics service DoubleClick, which allows to recognise the browser of the user while visiting other websites. The collected data are only evaluated for statistical purposes and in anonymised form. The information generated by the cookie regarding the use of the website from Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it is saved. Prior to transmission within member states of the European Union or other contractual states of the treaty regarding the European Economic Area, the IP-address is truncated by activating the IP-anonymisation.
Only in exceptional cases the IP-address is fully transmitted to a Google server in the USA before it is truncated there. The anonymised IP-address transmitted from the user browser in the outline of Google Analytics is not merged with other data by Google. DoubleClick cookies do not contain personal data.
The generated information are used for compiling reports about the activities  on this website, and to render further services in connection with this website. As far as required by law, Google transmits this information to third parties if necessary, or if third parties are processing these data by order of Google.

At any time the user has the choice to object for the future the tracking web analysis, or to deactivate the DoubleClick cookie. The extension required for the browser can be downloaded on the according Google website and installed. When using several terminals or browsers by the user, the opt-out must be executed for every terminal or browser. For this purpose the user can click on the following link: http://google.com/ads/preferences/html/opt-out.html

Use of Google Maps
On the website of Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH is used Google Maps (API) from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Maps is a web service for presentation of interactive maps for visually presenting geographical information. Already when calling those subpages the map of Google Maps is integrated, information about use of the website from Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH (as e.g. the IP-address of the user) is transmitted to the Google server in the USA where it is saved.
As far as required by law, Google transmits this information to third parties if necessary, or if third parties are processing these data by order of Google. Google will not connect the IP-address of the user with other data from Google. However, technically it would be possible that Google applies the user data received by using Google Maps for identification of the users, creating from this personal profiles of users, or processing and using these for other purposes, beyond the control of Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH. The terms of use from Google can be read under http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html.
The additional terms of use for Google Maps can be read under https://www.google.com/intl/de_US/help/terms_maps.html.
Detailed information regarding data protection related to the use of Google Maps can be found on the Google internet page („Google Privacy Policy“): http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

If the user disagrees with the future transmission of his data to Google in the context of using Google Maps, there is the option to completely deactivate Google Maps web service by disconnecting the JavaScript application in the user browser. Then it is not possible to use Google Maps and therefore neither the map display on the internet page from Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH.

Google AdWords – Conversion-Tracking
The Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH website uses the online advertising programme “Google AdWords”, and Conversion-Tracking in the context of Google AdWords. The cookie for Conversion-Tracking is set if a user clicks on an advertisement placed by Google. Cookies are small text files, which are saved in your computer system. These cookies become invalid after 30 days and are not for personal identification. When the user visits this website and the cookie is still not expired, Google and Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH can identify that the user has clicked on the advertisement and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords user receives a different cookie. Therefore, it is not possible to trace cookies via the website of AdWords users.

The information obtained with Conversion-Cookies are used for creating Conversion-Statistics for AdWords users having decided for Conversion-Tracking. Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH learns the total number of users having clicked on their advertisement and were redirected to a page provided with a Conversion-Tracking Tag. However, Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH does not receive information used for personal identification of users. If the user does not want to take part in Tracking he can object this use by deactivating the cookie of the Google Conversion-Tracking in the web browser under user settings. Thereafter, the user is not included in the Conversion-Tracking Statistics. Further information regarding the data protection regulations by Google: http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/

Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH uses Retargeting technology provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). This allows to purposefully address users of the Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH website who already showed interest for offers from Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH with personalised, interest-based advertising. Display of the advertising material takes place on the base of cookie-based analysis of the earlier usage behaviour, but without storing personal data. In cases of Retargeting technology a cookie is stored on the computer or mobile terminal of the user for recording anonymised data on interests, for matching the advertisement individually to the stored information. These cookies are small text files, which are saved in your computer or mobile terminal. As a result the user receives display of advertisement most probably matching the respective interests in product and information. The user is able to permanently object setting of cookies for ads preferences by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/
