By using the fraud0 service, we can detect invalid traffic on our site, improve our online marketing efforts, clean marketing-relevant statistics and improve the usability of our website. 

The data obtained from this service is only used for analysis and mitigation of invalid and low-quality traffic. fraud0 processes data on our behalf and is contractually committed to measures to ensure the confidentiality of the processed data. A data processing agreement with fraud0 has been concluded. The fraud0 technology uses JavaScript pixels.

Data processing by fraud0 will only continue until a classification has been made. The data is stored for further bot analysis with a period of one year. 

Tracking across websites does not happen at any time. We process data by using the fraud0 bot detection service based on Art. 6 lit. f GDPR. It is in the interest of the website operator to classify the users of its website as valid or as invalid traffic. First and foremost, we are preventing fraud (recital 47 of the GDPR), but we can also correct the website statistics by removing invalid traffic shares from our statistics. This will allow us to use our online marketing budget more efficiently and therefore continue to provide our services (as usual/free of charge/at a reasonable price).
