We use plugins from various social networks on our websites.
This website uses the following social plugins of the social network Facebook:
Plugins by Youtube.de/Youtube.com are used on this website and are operated by the YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When a user visits a website that contains such a plugin, their browser connects directly with YouTube’s servers. Through this the YouTube servers are informed of the websites which the user has visited. If you are logged in as a member of YouTube, YouTube assigns this information to the platforms of your respective personal accounts. When you use these plug-ins, such as clicking/start buttons of a video or sending a comment, this information will be assigned to your YouTube account, which can only be prevented by you logging out before using the plugin. More information can be found under the data protection declaration under www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy
This website uses the buttons of the service Twitter, which is provided by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. These plugins are, for example, indicated by terms such as “Tweet” or the Twitter logo. This enables people to share a post or a page from this website on Twitter. If a user visits a website containing such a button, their browser connects directly to Twitter’s servers. The content of the Twitter buttons is delivered directly by Twitter to the user’s browser. We have therefore no effect on the amount of data, which Twitter collects with the help of this plugin and can only inform the user through the knowledge available to us: afterwards the log data, such as the user’s IP address or previous websites visited, will be transmitted. More information can be found under Twitter’s data protection declaration twitter.com/privacy
Plugins of the LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (hereinafter referred to as “LinkedIn”) are integrated in this website. The LinkedIn plug-in can be recognized by the LinkedIn logo or the “share button” (“recommended”) on this website. When visiting this website, a direct connection is made between your browser and the LinkedIn server via the plugin. As a result, LinkedIn receives the information that you have visited this website using your IP address. If you click on the LinkedIn “share button” while you are logged in to your LinkedIn account, you can link the contents of this website to your LinkedIn profile. As a result, LinkedIn can associate the visit to this website with your user account. We would like to point out that as website operators we receive no information of the content in the transmitted data or their use through LinkedIn. Details for data collection (purpose, scope, further processing, use), as well as your rights and options can be found under LinkedIn’s data protection information. LinkedIn provides this information under www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.
We use – like almost every website operator – analysis tools in the form of tracking software to determine the frequency of use and the number of users to our website.
Using the analysis tool “Google Analytics”

Within the framework of the Google Analytics advertising function, remarketing and reports on performance will be used according to demographic characteristics and interests. These procedures serve the purpose of aligning advertising more with the interests of individual users through the help of information about user behavior. In the context of remarketing, personalized advertising measures can be switched to other websites based on your surfing behavior on PM-International’s website. Thus the advertising materials can contain products, which you have previously looked at on PM-International’s website. If you have agreed to your web and app browser being connected with Google through your Google account and that the information from your Google account can be used to personalize ads, then Google will use this data for comprehensive remarketing.
