Facebook Remarketing

This site uses the Remarketing “Custom Audiences” feature of Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”). This function is used to present visitors to this website as part of a visit to the social network Facebook (“Facebook Ads”). The remarketing tag of Facebook was implemented on this website. Through this tag a direct connection to the Facebook servers is made when visiting the website. You will be directed to the Facebook server that you visited this site, and Facebook will assign this information to your personal Facebook user account. For more information on how Facebook collects, uses, and protects your privacy, see the Facebook privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

LinkedIn Remarketing

This website uses the analysis and conversion tracking technology of the LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The technology is designed to provide visitors to the Linkedin career network website with interest-focused advertisements. For this the Insight-Tag from Linkedin was integrated into this website. When visiting the website – providing that you are, in parallel, logged into your Linkedin account – a link to the Linkedin servers is created via this tag. Thus Linkedin assigns your visit to the website to your personal user account. This LinkedIn technology allows you to view more relevant ads based on your interests. LinkedIn also provides WITTENSTEIN with aggregated and anonymous reports of ad activities and information about how you interact with this website.
