The legal basis for the use of Google Ads is § 15 para. 3 TMG in conjunction with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. DSGVO.

12. Online presence in social media
12.1. We maintain online presences in social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, interested parties and users and to inform them about our services.
12.2. Furthermore, social plugins ("plugins") are used on our websites. When you open our website with such a plugin, it establishes a direct connection with the servers of the social media platform via your browser. This transmits to them the information that you have accessed the page. If you are logged in with your respective account, the visit to our website can be directly assigned to your profile by clicking on the plugin. Even if you do not have a profile, it cannot be ruled out that your IP address is stored by the platform.

12.4. In addition, your data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, user profiles are created from user behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The user profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that allegedly correspond to the interests of the users. For this purpose, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users, in which the user behavior and the interests of the users are stored. In addition, data can also be stored in the usage profiles independently of the devices used by the users, especially if the users are logged in as members of the respective platforms.
12.5. The processing of users' personal data is based on our legitimate interest in effectively informing users and communicating with users pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. If users are asked for consent to data processing by the respective providers (i.e. you agree to this, e.g. by ticking a box or clicking a button), the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a. DSGVO, Art. 7 DSGVO.
