(3) Insofar as we disclose or transmit data to other persons and companies (Processors or Third Parties) as part of our processing or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of a statutory permission (e.g. if the transmission of data to Third Parties, such as payment service providers, in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 b GDPR is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract), if you have consented to such, if a legal obligation requires such or if such is done based on our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts (Wix .com Ltd, 40 Nemal Tel Aviv St., Tel Aviv, Israel,, CRM providers, etc.). If we commission third parties to process data, such will be done based on a so-called "Processing Contract" in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

Unless expressly stated in this Data Protection Declaration, data stored by us will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for its intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention requirements. We check every two years at the latest whether the necessity of storage still exists. If the data is not deleted because it is required for other and legally permissible purposes, its processing will be restricted. This means that the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies e.g. for data that must be kept on the basis of obligations arising from commercial or tax law.

§ 7 Google Fonts

(1) We use Google Fonts from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA for the uniform display of fonts. When a page is called up, the User's browser loads the required web fonts into their own browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. For this purpose, the User's browser must establish connections to the Google servers. This gives Google knowledge that our website has been accessed by the User's IP address.

(2) The integration of Google Fonts is necessary to design our website in line with the needed requirements. This constitutes our interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit f) GDPR (legitimate interest of us as Controller).

§ 8 Google Ads Conversion

(1) We use Google Ads (formerly Google Adwords) to draw attention to our offers with the help of advertising material (so-called Google Ads) on external websites. In relation to the data from the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. Our interest in doing so is to show you ads that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.

(2) These advertising materials are delivered by Google via so-called "ad servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of ads or clicks by Users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and should not be used to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (ensuring that the User does not wants to be addressed more) are stored.

(3) These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser. If a User visits certain pages of a Google Ads customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the User clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Google Ads customer. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked via the websites of Google Ads customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the advertising measures mentioned. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising material, in particular we cannot identify the Users based on this information.

(4) Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: By integrating Google Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on one of our ads. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign this information to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, there is a possibility that the provider will establish and store your IP address.

    (5) You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways: a) by setting your browser software accordingly, especially by suppressing third-party cookies which means that you will not receive any advertisements from third-party providers; b) by deactivating the cookies for conversion tracking, which you can do by change the settings of your browser so that cookies from the domain "" are blocked,, while this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based advertisements of the providers that are part of the self-regulation campaign "About Ads" via the link, while this setting is deleted if you delete your cookies; d) by permanent deactivation in the browsers of Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome under the link We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.
