Google Maps

We use Google Maps from Google Inc. on our website. The company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services for the European region. Google Maps allows us to better show you locations and thus adapt our service to your needs. By using Google Maps, data is transmitted to Google and stored on Google servers. All our efforts on this site are aimed to offer you a useful and meaningful time on our website. By integrating Google Maps, we can provide you with the key information on various locations. You can see at a glance where we are located. The directions will always show you the best or fastest way to get to us.

Google Tag Manager

For our website, we use the Google Tag Manager of the company Google Inc. For the European area, the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. The Google Tag Manager is an organisational tool with which we can integrate and manage website tags centrally and via a user interface. Tags are small sections of code that, for example, record (track) your activities on our website. For this purpose, JavaScript code sections are inserted into the source code of our page. The tags often come from Google-internal products such as Google Ads or Google Analytics, but tags from other companies can also be integrated and managed via the manager. Such tags perform different tasks. They can collect browser data, feed marketing tools with data, embed buttons, set cookies and also track users across multiple websites. The data collected by these tools shows us what you are most interested in, where we can improve our services and which people we should still show our offers to. And for this tracking to work, we need to embed appropriate JavaScript codes into our website. The tag manager itself is a domain that does not set any cookies and does not store any data. It acts as a simple "administrator" of the implemented tags.The data is collected by the individual tags of the different web analytics tools. The data is virtually passed through to the individual tracking tools in the Google Tag Manager and is not stored. In the account settings of the Tag Manager, we have allowed Google to receive anonymised data from us. However, this is only the use and usage of our Tag Manager and not your data stored via the code sections. We allow Google and others to receive selected data in anonymised form. We thus consent to the anonymous sharing of our website data. Which summarised and anonymous data is forwarded exactly, we could not find out - despite long research. In any case, Google deletes all information that could identify our website. Google combines the data with hundreds of other anonymous website data and creates user trends within the framework of benchmarking measures. Benchmarking compares our own results with those of our competitors. Processes can be optimised on the basis of the information collected.

Google Ads

We use Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords) as an online marketing measure to advertise our products and services. As part of our advertising measures through Google Ads, we use the conversion tracking of the company Google Inc. on our website. In Europe, however, the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. With the help of this free tracking tool, we can better adapt our advertising offer to your interests and needs. Of course, we also want to gain an accurate overview of the cost-benefit factor of our advertising campaigns. That's why we use the conversion tracking tool from Google Ads. A conversion occurs when you go from being a purely interested website visitor to an acting visitor. This happens whenever you click on our ad and then perform another action, such as visiting our website. With Google's conversion tracking tool, we record what happens after a user clicks on our Google Ads ad. For example, we can see whether products are purchased, services are used or whether users have signed up for our newsletter. With the conversion tracking tool, we can see which keywords, ads, ad groups and campaigns lead to the desired customer actions. We can see how many customers interact with our ads on a device and then make a conversion. This data allows us to calculate our cost-benefit factor, measure the success of individual advertising measures and consequently optimise our online marketing measures. We can also use the data obtained to make our website more interesting for you and adapt our advertising offer even more individually to your needs.

We have integrated YouTube videos on our website to bring you interesting video content directly on our platform. YouTube is a video portal that has been a subsidiary of Google since 2006. This video portal is operated by YouTube, LLC, located at 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page on our website that has an embedded YouTube video, your browser automatically connects to YouTube or Google's servers, and depending on your settings, various data may be transferred. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all data processing within the European region.

To display videos on our website, we incorporate a code snippet provided by YouTube. These embedded videos complement our textual and visual content, providing you with additional valuable information. Furthermore, embedding videos on our website can improve our visibility on the Google search engine. Even when we run Google Ads advertisements, Google can use the collected data to show these ads to individuals genuinely interested in our offerings. When you visit one of our pages featuring an embedded YouTube video, YouTube sets at least one cookie, which stores your IP address and our URL. If you're logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can often associate your interactions on our website with your profile using cookies. This includes data such as session duration, bounce rate, approximate location, technical information like browser type, screen resolution, or your internet service provider. Additional data may encompass contact details, any reviews, content sharing on social media, or adding content to your favorites on YouTube. If you're not logged into a Google account or a YouTube account, Google stores data with a unique identifier linked to your device, browser, or app. This helps maintain your preferred language settings, for example. However, many interaction data points cannot be stored as fewer cookies are set. Google retains the collected data for varying durations. Some data can be deleted at any time, while others are automatically deleted after a limited period, and still others are stored by Google for an extended time. Some data (such as items in "My Activity," photos, documents, products) stored in your Google account will persist until you delete them. Even if you're not logged into a Google account, you can delete certain data associated with your device, browser, or app. To learn more about our privacy policies, please refer to the following link:

Google Remarketing

Additionally, we utilize Google's Remarketing feature, which enables us to display personalized advertisements on appropriate ad spaces on other websites. These ads are tailored to your interests as demonstrated on our website. This capability is limited to a maximum of 18 months. For further details, please refer to Google's privacy policy. (Source:


Meta Plug-ins

On our website, we have incorporated social plugins from Meta Platforms Inc. You can recognize these buttons by the familiar Facebook or Instagram logos, such as the "Like" button (the hand with a raised thumb), or by a distinctive "Facebook Plugin" label. A social plugin is a small component of Meta that is integrated into our site, each serving a unique function. The most commonly used functions include the well-known "Like" and "Share" buttons. For more detailed information on how each plugin is used, you can visit

We utilize these social plugins for two main reasons. First, they enhance your user experience on our site, and second, they enable Meta to optimize our advertising. It's important to note that we do not have precise knowledge about the specific data content. To understand how Facebook uses this data, you can review the company's data policy at



We utilize the Facebook Pixel from Meta on our website. To do this, we've implemented a code snippet on our website. The Facebook Pixel is a piece of JavaScript code that loads a set of functions, allowing Meta to track your user actions if you've reached our website through Facebook or Instagram ads. For instance, when you make a purchase on our website, the Facebook Pixel is triggered and stores your actions on our site in one or more cookies. These cookies enable Meta to match your user data (such as customer data like IP address and user ID) with the data from your Facebook or Instagram account. Meta subsequently deletes this data. The data collected is anonymous and not visible to us, and it is only used within the context of advertising campaigns.

With the retargeting feature of the Meta Pixel, we can display targeted ads outside of our website without identifying the ad recipient. If you're a Facebook or Instagram user and logged in, your visit to our website is automatically associated with your user account. Our goal is to show our services or products only to those individuals genuinely interested in them. Using the Facebook Pixel, our advertising efforts can be better tailored to your preferences and interests. Facebook or Instagram users who allow personalized advertising may see relevant ads. Additionally, Meta uses the collected data for analytical purposes and its own advertisements.

If you're logged into Facebook, you can adjust your ad settings at If you're not a Facebook user, you can generally manage your interest-based online advertising preferences at There, you have the option to deactivate or activate providers.

LinkedIn Insight Tag

We employ the LinkedIn Insight Tag on our website to gather information about our website visitors. When a website visitor is registered with LinkedIn, we can analyze key professional data (such as career level, company size, country, location, industry, and job title) of our website visitors. This analysis helps us better tailor our website to our target audiences. Additionally, we can measure whether website visitors make a purchase or take other actions (conversion tracking). This measurement works across devices (e.g., from PC to tablet). With the LinkedIn Insight Tag's retargeting feature, we can display targeted advertising outside of the website without identifying the ad recipient.

LinkedIn itself collects log files (URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser characteristics, and access timestamp). However, IP addresses are either truncated or hashed (pseudonymized), especially when used for cross-device targeting of LinkedIn members. LinkedIn removes direct identifiers of LinkedIn members after 7 days, and the remaining pseudonymized data is deleted within 180 days.

The data collected by LinkedIn cannot be directly attributed to specific individuals by us as the website operators. LinkedIn will store the collected personal data of website visitors on its servers in the United States and use them for its own advertising campaigns. For more details, please refer to LinkedIn's privacy policy at

§ 7 Note on Data Transfer to the US

Arivo utilizes tools from companies based in the US. Active tools may therefore transmit data to servers in the US. Arivo informs visitors that the US is not considered a safe third country within the context of EU data protection laws. US companies are obligated to disclose personal data to security authorities without the possibility of legal action by individuals affected. As a result, it cannot be ruled out that US authorities (e.g., intelligence agencies) may process, analyze, and retain data located on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence over these processing activities.
