Social Media Plugin “Shariff Wrapper”

On our website we offer you the possibility to use so called “Social Media Buttons”. To protect your data, we use a solution called “Shariff”. Hereby the share buttons are implemented as static images, which contain a link to the corresponding social network site. If you click on such a button, you will be redirected to the respective social network site in the same way, as normal links would do as well. Only in that moment of time the provider of the social network site will get information about you, for example your IP address. If you do not click on such a share button, no data will be transmitted. Information about the collection and usage of your date on the social network sites can be found in the corresponding terms of use of the respective provider. More information about the plugin and the Shariff solution can be found here: Shariff Wrapper

Google Ads Shown to California Residents

About the California Consumer Privacy Act

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a new data privacy law that establishes various rights for California state residents. The law applies to companies that do business in California and meet one of several criteria related to revenue, data processing, and other factors. CCPA requires giving residents the right to opt out of the “sale” of their “personal information” (as the law defines those terms), with the opt-out offered via a prominent “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link on the “selling” party’s homepage. CCPA does recognize certain exceptions to the definition of “sale,” such that not all transfers of personal information are “sales.” For example, transferring personal information to a “service provider” under the law is not a sale.

About restricted data processing

Restricted data processing is intended to help advertisers, publishers, and partners meet their CCPA compliance needs. With restricted data processing, Google restricts how it uses certain unique identifiers, and other data processed in the provision of services to you, to only undertake certain business purposes. With respect to data to which restricted data processing applies, these business purposes include ad delivery, reporting and measurement, security and fraud detection, debugging, and improving and developing features for the products we offer you. Subject to the terms of our CCPA service provider addendum, we will act as your service provider with respect to data processed while restricted data processing is enabled.

Restricted data processing operates differently across our products. Advertisers, publishers, and partners should ensure that use of Google products and services, including restricted data processing, meets their CCPA compliance requirements. For products where action is required to enable restricted data processing, partners must decide for themselves when and how to enable it. Some may decide to enable restricted data processing on a per-user basis (for example, following a user opt-out by clicking on a “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” link).  Alternatively, for products that support it, some partners may decide to enable restricted data processing for all users in California.

Restricted data processing does not extend to the sending or disclosure of data to third parties that you may have enabled in our products and services, and you should ensure that you’ve taken all measures with respect to such third parties as required to meet your CCPA compliance needs. If you have shared data from one Google product with another via product integrations or through other means, data will be subject to the terms of the recipient product once shared.

Products and features that already operate using restricted data processing

These Google Ads products and features already operate using restricted data processing:

No actions are required by users of these products and features.

If you have shared data from one Google product with another via product integrations or through other means, data will be subject to the terms of the recipient product once shared.

Products and features that require action to enable restricted data processing

When you enable restricted data processing, Google will limit how it uses data. Certain features will be unavailable, including adding users to remarketing lists, adding users to similar audience remarketing seed lists, and related functionality. For App campaigns, enabling restricted data processing may mean that the users who install your app will continue to see ads for that app following installation.

Even when you have enabled restricted data processing, ads with third-party ad tracking or third-party ad serving, where eligible to serve (e.g. on the Google Display Network), will serve unless disabled by a publisher. Google’s contractual commitments regarding restricted data processing do not apply to such third-party tracking and serving vendors. You should ensure that you’ve taken appropriate measures with respect to such third parties as required to meet your CCPA compliance needs. For ads serving via cross-exchange for display, Google will not bid on bid requests where a publisher has sent an opt-out signal.

Note that, even when restricted data processing is enabled, conversion tracking and campaign measurement will continue to function as normal.
