The tracking pixel establishes a connection between a user's click on an ad (touch point) placed on “billiger.de” and a completed order on our website. When an order is finalized, your browser sends an HTTP request to the billiger.de server via the tracking pixel, which transmits certain information.
This information includes the IP address of the end device (this IP address is anonymized by billiger.de before it is stored), the HTTP header (data package with various technical information automatically transmitted by your browser) and the date of the request. In addition, the order number and shopping cart value of your order are also transmitted and stored by “billiger.de”. This information is only recorded and transmitted to and stored by “billiger.de” if an order is actually placed after “billiger.de” has forwarded it to our website.
All processing described above, in particular the reading of information on the end device used via the tracking pixel, is only carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point a GPDR.

You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
