Retargeting and Remarketing

Retargeting or remarketing refers to technologies in which users who have previously visited a certain website are shown appropriate advertising even after leaving this website. For this purpose, it is necessary to recognize Internet users beyond their own website, for which purpose cookies of the corresponding service providers are used. In addition, previous usage behavior is considered. For example, if some user views certain products, they may later display these or similar products as advertisements on other websites. It is personalized advertising that is adapted to the needs of each user. It is not necessary for this personalized advertisement to be identified beyond the recognition of the user. The data used for the retargeting or remarketing will therefore not be merged with other data.

We use such technologies to display ads on the Internet. We use third-party providers to deliver such ads. We use, among other things, offers from Google, which allows an automatic display of interesting products for the Internet user. This function is implemented by cookies. Cookies for Google Remarketing and Google AdWords Conversion Tracking can be managed in your browser settings.

Social Media

On our websites, you will find links to the social network Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn as well as to our YouTube channels. The links are indicated by the respective logo of the provider.

Clicking on the links opens the corresponding social media pages for which this Privacy Policy does not apply. For details of the applicable provisions, please refer to the respective Privacy Policies of each provider.

Facebook Custom Audiences

Tower Websites use the Facebook Customer's remarketing feature "Custom Audiences" ("Facebook"). This allows users of the website to be shown interest-based advertisements ("Facebook Ads") as part of their visit to the social network Facebook or other websites that also use the process. We are interested in showing you advertisements that are of interest to you to make our online offers more interesting to you.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Facebook server. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected using this tool by Facebook and therefore inform you that according to our knowledge: By integrating Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online services or have clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a service of Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, there is a chance that the provider will find out and store your IP address and other identifying features.

Disabling the "Facebook Custom Audiences" feature is available to logged-in users at
