Microsoft Bing Ads

Our website uses Bing Ads for remarketing and follow-up. This is a service of Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052 - 6399, USA, hereinafter referred to as “Microsoft”, based on so-called Universal Event Tracking (UEN).

Microsoft guarantees that it will follow the EU’s data protection regulations when processing data in the United States.


The legal basis for collecting and processing this information is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization, and economic operation of our site.


If you click on an advertisement placed by us on the Bing search engine, Microsoft stores a cookie on your terminal device to track your activity via your browser. This cookie expires after 180 days and is not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, both Microsoft and we may recognize that you have clicked on an advertisement placed by us at Bing and have been forwarded to our website from there.


Microsoft uses the information collected by the tracking cookie to compile visit statistics for us. This provides us with information on the number of hits triggered by the advertising placed on Bing and which pages on our site were subsequently accessed. However, we do not receive any information that could be used to identify you personally.


In addition, Microsoft may be able to track your user behavior across multiple devices using cross-device tracking. This enables Microsoft to display personalized advertising across all devices.


If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser. Further details can be found in the section about cookies above.


If you have a Microsoft account, you can also change the settings for personalized advertising there at http://choice.microsoft.com/de-de/opt-out.
