5. Collected data, purposes of data processing and legal basis
Every time a user accesses a Neumann page and every time a file is accessed, data about that process is stored in a log file. Depending on the access protocol used, the log record contains information with the following contents:

7. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event of activation of IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

8. Google Double Click
Neumann's website uses Doubleblick by Google. Doubleclick by Google uses cookies to show you advertisements that are relevant to you. Your browser will be assigned a pseudonymous identification number (ID) to check which ads have appeared in your browser and which ads have been viewed. The cookies themselves contain no personal information, according to Google. Using the DoubleClick cookie allows Google and its affiliate websites to serve ads based on previous visits to our or other websites on the Internet. The information generated by the cookies is transmitted by Google for evaluation to a server in the USA and stored there.

9. Google GA Audiences / Remarinessing feature

10. Facebook Remarketing / Retargeting (Custom Audiences Pixel)
The website uses the "Custom Audiences" remarketing feature of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). By means of this function and the use of the corresponding remarketing tag from Facebook, we may target users with advertising by displaying interest-based personalized Facebook ads when they visit Facebook.

When visiting the Neumann website, a direct link to the Facebook servers is made via the Facebook remarketing tags. The Facebook server communicates which of the Neumann websites you have visited. Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account.

Georg Neumann partly uses social plugins of the following providers on its internet presence:

The plugins allow you to share content and images with other people. When using the plugins, Georg Neumann wants to make sure that the data of the users will only be transmitted if that is desired.

By default, the plugin is disabled. Only when you click on one of the buttons as a user, the Plugin is activated and a connection to the servers of the provider is made.

By using the plugins, the providers receive the information that you have visited our website. If you click on one of the buttons while logged in to your respective account, you can link the contents of our pages to your profile. This allows the provider to assign the visit to our pages to your user account.
