3.4 Use of technically unnecessary cookies and pixels based on consent

3.4.1 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by users is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, Google will truncate the user's IP address beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this website.
On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to us as the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
The legal basis for this is the declaration of consent given by you when calling up this website in the context of our cookie banner (Art. 6 para. 1 a, 7 DSGVO). You can revoke the consent you have given at any time with effect for the future. Please click this link to revoke your consent and prevent the collection by Google Analytics within this website in the future. In doing so, an opt-out cookie will be placed on your device. Please note that the opt-out cookie only works in the browser in which it was set. Even if you delete your cookies, you must click this link again.
Alternatively, you can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software. Users can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

3.4.2 Google Adwords
As an AdWords customer, we also use Google Conversion Tracking on our website. This is an analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). As part of this service, Google Adwords sets a cookie on your computer ("conversion cookie") if you have come to our website via a Google ad. These types of cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to identify you personally. If you visit certain pages of ours and if the cookie has not yet expired, it is possible for us and Google to recognize with the help of this cookie that someone clicked on the ad and was thus redirected to our site. Since each AdWords customer receives a different cookie, it is not possible to track the cookie across other AdWords customers' websites. The purpose of the conversion cookie is to use the information collected to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers. As an AdWords customer, we only learn the total number of users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any information that allows us to personally identify a user.
The legal basis for the processing is the declaration of consent given by you when calling up this website in the context of our cookie banner (Art. 6 para. 1 a, 7 DSGVO). You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To do so, configure your browser setting according to your wishes and, for example, refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "googleadservices.com". Please note that the browser settings you make only ever apply to the browser you are using.

We use the DoubleClick by Google service on our website to present you with advertisements that are relevant to you. DoubleClick by Google is a service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").
When using DoubleClick, a pseudonymous identification number (ID) is assigned to your browser in order to be able to determine that you have visited our site, which ads were displayed in your browser and which ads were called up. The cookies do not contain any information that allows us to identify you directly. The use of DoubleClick cookies only enables Google and its partner websites to serve ads based on previous visits to our website or other websites on the Internet.
The information generated by the cookies is transferred by Google to a server in the USA for analysis and stored there. A transfer of data by Google to third parties only takes place due to legal regulations or in the context of order data processing.
The legal basis for the processing is the declaration of consent given by you when calling up this website in the context of our cookie banner (Art. 6 para. 1 a, 7 DSGVO). You can revoke the consent you have given at any time with effect for the future.

Through the use of this technology, it is possible to address users who have already visited our websites and online services and are interested in the offer, through targeted advertising on the pages of the Google Partner Network again. The insertion of advertising is carried out through the use of cookies, i.e. small text files that are stored on the user's computer. The purpose of the data processing is to use the text files to analyse user behaviour when visiting the website and then to use them for targeted product recommendations and interest-based advertising.
The legal basis for the processing is the declaration of consent given by you when calling up this website in the context of our cookie banner (Art. 6 para. 1 a, 7 DSGVO).
The remarketing cookies used have a maximum validity of 60 days after your last visit. Please note that this period starts to run again when you visit our website again.

This includes, for example, your name, contact details, contractual details such as your tariff and your consumption and also technical or construction data if it was collected as part of our (pre-)contractual relationship (e.g. roof area, system performance data).

3. Other information provided

By this we mean all data that you have given us yourself or generated by means of our applications outside of our contractual or pre-contractual relationship. This can be, for example, your expressed interest in one of our products or services, but also, for example, a notice of an upcoming move or other changes to your home, which could have an impact on the optimal tariff for you. Another example is when you use our e-mobility driving simulation to find out whether an e-car could be useful for you.

4. Data that we collect in the context of your communication with us.

We understand this to mean data that we collect in connection with a communication with you in addition to the information provided in terms of content. This concerns in particular our assessment of your satisfaction.

The creation of your personal customer profile serves the purpose that we can refer you to content individually tailored to your interests, where we assume that they could be particularly helpful or interesting for you in your situation. It also allows us to provide you with more relevant offers that are more likely to be of interest to you. Furthermore, with the help of the customer profile, we can offer advice that meets your personal needs and give you more transparency around your energy consumption and costs and help you avoid unnecessary consumption.

The legal basis for the data processing is your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 a) DSGVO). The personal customer profile created will be deleted when it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was created, but at the latest when you withdraw your consent.
Please note that the granting/non-granting of consent does not affect data processing that is already permitted on the basis of other legal grounds (such as for contractual purposes (Art. 6(1)(b)) or for legitimate interest (Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO)).
