We use the online advertising program "Google AdWords" and conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords. Google Conversion Tracking is an analytical service provided by Google LLC, Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google“). When you click on a Google ad, a cookie for conversion tracking is stored on your computer. The cookies expire after 30 days. These cookies do not contain personal data and cannot be used to identify you.
If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and RocApply can detect that you have clicked on the ad and were re-directed to this page.

With a conversion tracking tag, customers can see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were re-directed to their page. They do not, however, receive information that can personally identify users.

We use the remarketing or “similar target group” function provided by Google LLC, Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google“) on our websites. This feature enables us to provide users of our website with targeted advertising by displaying personalized, interest-based advertisements when you visit other websites in the Google Display Network.
Due to our legitimate interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer and for these purposes within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f. of the GDPR we use the so-called "Facebook pixel" of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are a resident of the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook").
With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is on the one hand able to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the presentation of advertisements (so-called "Facebook Ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display our Facebook Ads only to Facebook users who have shown an interest in our Websites or who have specific characteristics (e. g. interests in certain topics or products determined by the websites visited) that we submit to Facebook (so-called "custom audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to make sure that our Facebook Ads are in line with the potential interest of users and do not have a nuisance effect. Using the Facebook pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of Facebook Ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users have been redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook Ad (so-called "conversion").
The Facebook pixel is directly integrated into our web pages by Facebook and can store a so-called cookie, i. e. a small file, on your device. If you then log in to Facebook or visit Facebook when you are logged in, your visit to our online offer will be noted in your profile. The data collected about you is anonymous for us, i. e. it does not allow us to draw conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that it can be linked to the respective user profile and used by Facebook as well as for its own market research and advertising purposes. If we transfer data to Facebook for comparison purposes, it is encrypted locally in the browser and only then sent to Facebook via a secure https connection. This is done with the sole purpose of matching the data encrypted by Facebook.
Facebook's processing of the data is governed by Facebook’s Data Usage Policy. For specific information and details about the Facebook pixel and how it works, please visit the Facebook Help Center.
You may object to the collection by the Facebook pixel and use of your data to display Facebook ads. To set what kind of ads you see on Facebook, you can go to the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions on how to set up use-based advertising.
