      2.2.2 Google Analytics

Purpose/Information:
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Ltd. (“Google”). The configuration of Google Analytics has been modified by us to the measurement only function, unless separate consent for further advertising features has been given.
Google Analytics uses a specific form of cookie, which is stored on your computer and enables an analysis of your use of our website. The cookies set by Google Analytics for measurement are first party cookies, which means that data subjects’ cookie values will be different for each customer (i.e. there is not a single Google Analytics cookie ID that is used on all sites using Google Analytics). The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. 
We would like to point out that Google Analytics has been expanded on this website to include the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure the anonymised recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). Due to the IP anonymization on this website, your IP address is shortened by Google within the territory of the EU and the Treaty States of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. 
Google uses this information on our behalf to analyse your use of this website in order to compile reports on website activities and provide additional services related to website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. 
We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the usage of our website. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. In addition, we gain information about the functionality of our site (for example to detect navigation problems).
In the configuration of Google Analytics, we ensured that Google receives this data as a processor and is therefore not allowed to use this data for its own purposes. The "Google Analytics Advertising Features" configuration is independent from this and is described in the appropriate section below, provided it is also used on this website. 
Cookies/Tools: Type B. More information can be found in the “Cookies/Tools” section.

Recipients:
Main service provider: Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Analytics Terms of Service: https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html, General overview on Google Analytics security and privacy principles: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en, as well as Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en. 
Transfers to third countries are possible. As an appropriate safeguard standard contractual clauses pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR were concluded. For third countries/companies which fall under an adequacy decision, the adequacy decision also applies. More information on this topic is published here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside-eu_en.

This enables us to analyse and regularly improve our services and make them more interesting for you as a user. Cookies are stored on your computer for these analyses. The information collected in this way is stored exclusively on a server in the EU. You can prevent the storage of cookies by making the proper setting using your browser software. Before the analyses are carried out, the IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, so that direct personal contact can be ruled out.

     2.2.4 Google Ads (formerly Google Adwords)

    Purpose/Information:
Google Ads Conversion
We use the services of Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertisements (so-called Google Ads) on external websites. We can determine in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns how successful the individual advertising measures are. We are interested in showing you advertisements that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.
The advertisements 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 insertion 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 device. 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 (mark that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.
These cookies enable Google to recognise your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer's website and the cookie stored on their device has not expired, Google and the customer can recognise that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Ads customer is assigned a
 
different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Ads customers. We do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations we can recognise which of the used advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically starts a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and the further use of the data which are raised by the use of this tool by Google and inform you therefore according to our knowledge: By the integration of Ads conversion Google receives the information that you called the appropriate part of our internet appearance or clicked an announcement of us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the providers may obtain and store your IP address.
Google Ads Remarketing
We use the remarketing function within the Google Ads service. The remarketing function allows us to present to users of our website advertisements based on their interests on other websites within the Google advertising network (in Google search or on YouTube, so-called "Google ads" or on other websites). For this purpose, the interaction of users on our website is analysed, e.g. which offers the user was interested in, in order to be able to display targeted advertising to users even after visiting our website on other pages. To do this, Google stores cookies in the browsers of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google Display Network. This cookie is used to record the visits of these users. The number is used to uniquely identify a web browser on a particular device.
Cookies/Tools: Type C. More information can be found in the “Cookies/Tools
section.
Recipients:
Main service provider: Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Transfers to third countries are possible. As an appropriate safeguard standard contractual clauses pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR were concluded. For third countries/companies which fall under an adequacy decision, the adequacy decision also applies. More information on this topic is published here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside- eu_en.
Further recipients can be found in the general recipients section 1.4.
Deletion/withdrawal:
You can deactivate this tool via the Cookie Settings here.
Cookie lifetime: up to 180 days (this applies only for cookies which have been set by this website).
Legal basis:

2.2.5 Google Analytics Advertising Features

 Purpose/Information:
This website also uses the extended functions of Google Analytics (Google Analytics Advertising Features) in addition to the standard functions. The Google Analytics Advertising Features implemented on this website include:
Google Display Network Impression Reporting
Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting
Remarketing Audiences based on specific behaviour, demographic, and interest data, sharing those lists with Google Ads
Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data for advertising purposes, including the collection of data via advertising cookies and identifiers
We therefore use first-party cookies (e.g. Google Analytics cookies) and Google advertising cookies and identifiers together in order to optimise our website.
Cookie/Tools: Type C. More information can be found in the “Cookies/Tools” section.
Recipients:
Main service provider: Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

2.2.6 Google Campaign Manager

Purpose/Information:
This website also uses the online marketing tool Campaign Manager by Google. Campaign Manager uses Cookies to display ads relevant to users, improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads more than once. Google uses a cookie ID to track which ads are displayed in which browser and to prevent them from being displayed more than once. In addition, Campaign Manager may use cookie IDs to collect so called conversions related to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees a Campaign Manager ad and later visits the advertiser's website with the same browser and buys something there.
Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server once visiting our website. We have no influence on the extent and the 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 Campaign Manager, Google receives the information that you have called the corresponding part of our Internet presence or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the providers may obtain and store your IP address.
In addition to that, Campaign Manager cookies (e.g. named as DoubleClick or Floodlight) allow us to understand whether you complete certain actions on our website(s) after viewing one of our display/video ads on Google or other platforms through Campaign Manager or clicking through one (conversion tracking).
Campaign Manager uses this cookie to understand the content with which you have interacted on our website(s) in order to be able to send you targeted advertising later.
Used Cookies: Type C. More information can be found in the “Cookies/Tools
section.
Recipients:
Main service provider: Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Transfers to third countries are possible. As an appropriate safeguard standard contractual clauses pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR were concluded.

Purpose/Information:
This website uses the online marketing tool Adform by Adform A/S Denmark. Adform uses cookies to display ads relevant to users, improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from seeing the same ad more than once. Adform uses a cookie ID to track which ads are displayed in which browser and to prevent them from being displayed more than once. In addition, Adform may use cookie IDs to collect conversions related to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees an Adform ad and later visits the advertiser's website with the same browser and buys something there. Adform cookies do not contain any personal information, such as email-address, name or addresses.
Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Adform server once visiting our website. By integrating Adform, Adform receives the information
 
that you have called the corresponding part of our Internet presence or clicked on an advertisement from us.
In addition to that, Adform cookies allow us to understand whether you complete certain actions on our website(s) after viewing one of our display/video ads on Adform or other platforms through Adform or clicking through one (conversion tracking). Adform uses this cookie to understand the content with which you have interacted on our website(s) in order to be able to send you targeted advertising later.

2.2.8 (Website) Facebook Custom Audiences / Conversion (“Facebook Pixel”)

Purpose/Information:
This website uses the so-called "Facebook Pixel" and the Conversions API of the social network "Facebook" by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (Meta) for the following purposes:
Facebook (website) Custom Audiences
We use the Facebook pixel and the Conversions API for remarketing purposes to be able to contact you again within 180 days. This allows us to display interest-based advertisements ("Facebook Ads") to users of the website when they visit the social network "Facebook" or other websites also using this tool. In this way, we pursue the interest in displaying advertisements that are of interest to you in order to make our website or offers more interesting for you.

Facebook conversion
We also use the Facebook Pixel and the Conversions API to ensure that our Facebook Ads match the potential interest of users and are not annoying. With the help of the Facebook Pixel, we can track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so- called "conversion").

Due to the marketing tools used (Facebook Pixel and Conversions API), your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Facebook server as soon as you have agreed to the use of cookies requiring your consent. Through the integration of the Facebook pixel and the usage of the Conversions API, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our internet presence or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account.
The processing of this data by Facebook takes place within the framework of Facebook's data policy [Link to https://www.facebook.com/policy.php]. Special information and details about the Facebook pixel, the Conversions API and its functionality can also be found in the Facebook help area [Link to https://www.facebook.com/business/help/742478679120153].
Cookie/Tools: Type C. More information can be found in the “Cookies/Tools” section.
Recipients:
Joint Controller:
We are jointly responsible with Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (Meta) for the collection and transfer of data in this process. This applies to the following purposes:
The creation of individualised or suitable ads, as well as for their optimization
Delivery of commercial and transaction-related messages (e.g. via Messenger)
The following processes are therefore not covered by joint controllership:
The process that takes place after the collection and transmission is within the sole responsibility of Meta.
The preparation of reports and analyses in aggregated and anonymised form is carried out as a Processor and is therefore within our responsibility.
We have concluded a corresponding agreement with Meta for joint controllership, which can be accessed here: https://www.facebook.com/legal/controller_addendum. This agreement defines the respective responsibilities for fulfilling the obligation under the GDPR with regard to joint controllership.
The contact details of the Controller and the data protection officer of Meta can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.
We have agreed with Meta that Meta can be used as a contact point for the exercise of data subject rights (see Section 1.3). Without prejudice to this, the jurisdiction of the Rights of Data Subjects is not limited.
Further information on how Meta processes personal data, including its legal basis and further information on the rights of data subjects can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy. We transfer the data within the scope of joint controllership based on the legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f GDPR.
Information on the data security conditions can be found here. https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/data_security_terms and on processing on the basis of standard contractual clauses can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/legal/EU_data_transfer_addendum.

Art. 6 (1) a GDPR (consent)

2.2.9 Social Plug-ins

Purpose/Information:
Social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) of social networks (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest) are used on our websites, in particular the “Share” or “Share with friends” button of Facebook, whose website facebook.com is operated by Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland. The plug-ins are usually marked with a Facebook logo.
Besides Facebook, we use plug-ins from Twitter (Provider: Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103) and Pinterest (Provider: Pinterest Europe Limited, 2nd Floor, Palmerston House, Fenian Street, Dublin 2, Ireland).
For data protection reasons, we have deliberately decided against utilising direct plug-ins of social networks on our websites. Instead, we use the “Shariff” solution. With the aid of Shariff, we can determine for ourselves when and whether data is transmitted to the operator of the respective social network. For this reason, there is no automatic data transmission to social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest once you access our website. Data will be transmitted to social networks only if you actively click on the respective social network button. In this case, your web browser starts a connection to the respective social network's servers. By clicking on the respective button (e.g. “Pass on”, “Share” or “Share with friends”) you agree that your browser will produce a link to the respective social network's servers and transmit usage data to the respective operator of the social network and vice versa. We have no influence upon the nature and extent of the data that is then gathered by the social networks.
The social network providers store the data collected about you as user profiles and use these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for not logged in users) for the representation of demand-fair advertisement and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in providers to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.

3.1 Contacting/Communication/Collaboration

Purpose/Information:
When communicating and/or collaboration with us, e.g. by email or via contact form on our website, data exchange platform, be it e.g. as a consumer, test person, business partner or customer, the data you provide (your email address, if applicable your name and your telephone number, or personal data submitted during the conversation) will be stored and processed by us in order to e.g. answer your questions, requests or for the purpose of business related correspondence.
With regard to the cooperation with our suppliers, we have implemented an internal evaluation process which, in our legitimate interest, is intended to improve the business relationship by developing an "action plan". As a rule, we only process information about the company, but conclusions can be drawn about you as the contact person, if the communication with suppliers is examined with regard to response times, reliability and transparency.
We may ask you when you contact us by telephone as a consumer whether the telephone call may be recorded for quality assurance and training measures. If you agree to the recording, we will process all information that you share with us during the call (communication content, possibly also sensitive (health) data, as well as your phone number and other personal data).
When processing data arising in the course of communication, we have a legitimate interest in processing the data in accordance with legal requirements, for internal verification or in accordance with the respective communication request.
Recipients and sources:
In order to combat terrorism, we are obliged by law to carry out a comparison with sanctions lists. Therefore, we also process your data to meet legal requirements for comparison with these lists. Furthermore, we process your data in the Beiersdorf Group for the prevention and investigation of criminal offences and other misconduct, the assessment and control of risks, for internal communication and for
 
corresponding administrative purposes. If an affiliated company reports a need to work with you as a supplier, we will share our experiences from working with you with the affiliated company.
If you are a business partner, we will compare your data against published lists of misleading suppliers (e.g. warning lists of World Intellectual Property Organization and Bundesanzeiger Verlag GmbH) to make an informed decision about potential payments. We also regularly check your creditworthiness in certain cases (e.g. when concluding contracts). Our legitimate interest is the minimization of the financial risk. For this purpose, we cooperate with credit agencies from which we receive the necessary data. For this purpose we transmit your name and your contact data to the credit agencies.
If you are a business customer or partner, it may be necessary to transfer your personal data to prospective buyers as part of a company transaction. In the course of due diligence, usually anonymised data is processed. However, it may be necessary in specific individual cases to process personal data. Our legitimate interest lies in the execution of the company transaction.
Additionally we transfer the data to the following recipients:
- Customer/Consumer service providers
- Platform/hosting provider
Transfers to third countries are possible. As an appropriate safeguard standard contractual clauses pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR were concluded. For third countries/companies which fall under an adequacy decision, the adequacy decision also applies. Additionally binding corporate rules were approved at a platform/hosting provider. More information on this topic is published here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/data-transfers-outside- eu_en.

Deletion /Objection:
We delete the data arising in this context once storage is no longer necessary, unless statutory retention obligations exist or periods of limitation must be observed.
In case of consumer inquiries through our internal consumer management tool the personal data will be usually deleted after one year, if no other legal retention periods apply. As an exception, the data will be kept longer if the data is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Call recordings are stored for a maximum of 90 days.
You can object to these processes according to the requirements under 4.

4. Objection or Withdrawal of your consent to the Processing of Personal Data

If you have given your consent (Art. 6 (1) a GDPR) to the processing of your data, you can withdraw your consent at any time. Such a withdrawal influences the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have given it to us.

If we base the processing of your personal data on the weighing of interests (Art. 6 (1) f GDPR), you may object to the processing. This is the case if processing is not necessary in particular to fulfil a contract with you, which is described by us in the description of the functions / services. When exercising such objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust data processing or point out to you our compelling reasons worthy of protection, on the basis of which we will continue processing.
Of course, you can object to the processing of your personal data for purposes of advertising and data analysis at any time. You can inform us about your objection under the above-mentioned contact details for the controller.
