3. Data collection on our website

Cookies

Some of our web pages use cook­ies. Cook­ies do not harm your com­put­er and do not con­tain any virus­es. Cook­ies help make our web­site more user-friend­ly, effi­cient, and secure. Cook­ies are small text files that are stored on your com­put­er and saved by your brows­er.

Most of the cook­ies we use are so-called “ses­sion cook­ies.” They are auto­mat­i­cal­ly delet­ed after your vis­it. Oth­er cook­ies remain in your device’s mem­o­ry until you delete them. These cook­ies make it pos­si­ble to rec­og­nize your brows­er when you next vis­it the site.

You can con­fig­ure your brows­er to inform you about the use of cook­ies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cook­ie. Alter­na­tive­ly, your brows­er can be con­fig­ured to auto­mat­i­cal­ly accept cook­ies under cer­tain con­di­tions or to always reject them, or to auto­mat­i­cal­ly delete cook­ies when clos­ing your brows­er. Dis­abling cook­ies may lim­it the func­tion­al­i­ty of this web­site.

Cook­ies which are nec­es­sary to allow elec­tron­ic com­mu­ni­ca­tions or to pro­vide cer­tain func­tions you wish to use (such as the shop­ping cart) are stored pur­suant to Art. 6 para­graph 1, let­ter f of DSG­VO. The web­site oper­a­tor has a legit­i­mate inter­est in the stor­age of cook­ies to ensure an opti­mized ser­vice pro­vid­ed free of tech­ni­cal errors. If oth­er cook­ies (such as those used to ana­lyze your surf­ing behav­ior) are also stored, they will be treat­ed sep­a­rate­ly in this pri­va­cy pol­i­cy.

Server log files

The web­site provider auto­mat­i­cal­ly col­lects and stores infor­ma­tion that your brows­er auto­mat­i­cal­ly trans­mits to us in “serv­er log files”. These are:

  • Brows­er type and brows­er ver­sion
  • Oper­at­ing sys­tem used
  • Refer­rer URL
  • Host name of the access­ing com­put­er
  • Time of the serv­er request
  • IP address

These data will not be com­bined with data from oth­er sources.

The basis for data pro­cess­ing is Art. 6 para­graph 1, let­ter f of DSG­VO, which allows the pro­cess­ing of data to ful­fill a con­tract or for mea­sures pre­lim­i­nary to a con­tract.

Contact form

Should you send us ques­tions via the con­tact form, we will col­lect the data entered on the form, includ­ing the con­tact details you pro­vide, to answer your ques­tion and any fol­low-up ques­tions. We do not share this infor­ma­tion with­out your per­mis­sion.

We will, there­fore, process any data you enter onto the con­tact form only with your con­sent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSG­VO. You may revoke your con­sent at any time. An infor­mal email mak­ing this request is suf­fi­cient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legal­ly processed.

We will retain the data you pro­vide on the con­tact form until you request its dele­tion, revoke your con­sent for its stor­age, or the pur­pose for its stor­age no longer per­tains (e.g. after ful­fill­ing your request). Any manda­to­ry statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions, espe­cial­ly those regard­ing manda­to­ry data reten­tion peri­ods, remain unaf­fect­ed by this pro­vi­sion.

4. Analytics and advertising

Google Analytics

This web­site uses Google Ana­lyt­ics, a web ana­lyt­ics ser­vice. It is oper­at­ed by Google Inc., 1600 Amphithe­atre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Ana­lyt­ics uses so-called “cook­ies”. These are text files that are stored on your com­put­er and that allow an analy­sis of the use of the web­site by you. The infor­ma­tion gen­er­at­ed by the cook­ie about your use of this web­site is usu­al­ly trans­mit­ted to a Google serv­er in the USA and stored there.

Google Ana­lyt­ics cook­ies are stored based on Art. 6 para­graph 1, let­ter f of DSG­VO. The web­site oper­a­tor has a legit­i­mate inter­est in ana­lyz­ing user behav­ior to opti­mize both its web­site and its adver­tis­ing.

IP anonymiza­tion

We have acti­vat­ed the IP anonymiza­tion fea­ture on this web­site. Your IP address will be short­ened by Google with­in the Euro­pean Union or oth­er par­ties to the Agree­ment on the Euro­pean Eco­nom­ic Area pri­or to trans­mis­sion to the Unit­ed States. Only in excep­tion­al cas­es is the full IP address sent to a Google serv­er in the US and short­ened there. Google will use this infor­ma­tion on behalf of the oper­a­tor of this web­site to eval­u­ate your use of the web­site, to com­pile reports on web­site activ­i­ty, and to pro­vide oth­er ser­vices regard­ing web­site activ­i­ty and Inter­net usage for the web­site oper­a­tor. The IP address trans­mit­ted by your brows­er as part of Google Ana­lyt­ics will not be merged with any oth­er data held by Google.

Brows­er plu­g­in

You can pre­vent these cook­ies being stored by select­ing the appro­pri­ate set­tings in your brows­er. How­ev­er, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full func­tion­al­i­ty of this web­site.

Out­sourced data pro­cess­ing

We have entered into an agree­ment with Google for the out­sourc­ing of our data pro­cess­ing and ful­ly imple­ment the strict require­ments of the Ger­man data pro­tec­tion author­i­ties when using Google Ana­lyt­ics.

Demo­graph­ic char­ac­ter­is­tics at Google Ana­lyt­ics

This web­site uses Google Ana­lyt­ics ‘demo­graph­ic char­ac­ter­is­tics’ fea­ture. This allows reports to be cre­at­ed that con­tain state­ments about the age, gen­der and inter­ests of page vis­i­tors. This data comes from inter­est-based adver­tis­ing from Google, as well as third-par­ty vis­i­tor data. This data can­not be assigned to any spe­cif­ic per­son. You can dis­able this Fea­ture At any time via the Ad Set­tings in Your Google account or gen­er­al­ly pro­hib­it the col­lec­tion of your data by Google Ana­lyt­ics as shown under “Object­ing to the col­lec­tion of data.”

Google AdWords and Google Conversion tracking

This web­site uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online adver­tis­ing pro­gram of Google Inc., 1600 Amphithe­atre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, Unit­ed States (“Google”).

As part of Google AdWords, we use what is known as con­ver­sion track­ing. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cook­ie is set for con­ver­sion track­ing. Cook­ies are small text files that the Inter­net brows­er places on the user’s com­put­er. These cook­ies expire after 30 days and are not used for the per­son­al iden­ti­fi­ca­tion of users. If the user vis­its cer­tain pages of this web­site and the cook­ie has not expired, Google and we can rec­og­nize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been for­ward­ed to this page.

Each Google AdWords cus­tomer will receive a dif­fer­ent cook­ie. The cook­ies can­not be tracked through AdWords cus­tomers ’ web­sites. The infor­ma­tion obtained using the con­ver­sion cook­ie is used to cre­ate con­ver­sion sta­tis­tics for AdWords cus­tomers who have opt­ed for con­ver­sion track­ing. Cus­tomers will learn the total num­ber of users who clicked on their ad and were direct­ed to a page with a con­ver­sion track­ing tag. How­ev­er, you will not receive any infor­ma­tion that can be used to iden­ti­fy users per­son­al­ly. If you don’t want to par­tic­i­pate in track­ing, you can object to this usage by eas­i­ly dis­abling the cook­ie of Google con­ver­sion track­ing through their inter­net brows­er under user set­tings. They will not be includ­ed in the con­ver­sion track­ing sta­tis­tics.

“Con­ver­sion cook­ies” are stored based on Art. 6 para­graph 1, let­ter f of DSG­VO. The web­site oper­a­tor has a legit­i­mate inter­est in ana­lyz­ing user behav­ior to opti­mize both its web­site and its adver­tis­ing.

For more Infor­ma­tion about Google AdWords and Google Con­ver­sion track­ing, See Google’s Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy: https://​www​.google​.de/​p​o​l​i​c​i​e​s​/​p​r​i​v​a​cy/.

You can con­fig­ure your brows­er to inform you about the use of cook­ies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cook­ie. Alter­na­tive­ly, your brows­er can be con­fig­ured to auto­mat­i­cal­ly accept cook­ies under cer­tain con­di­tions or to always reject them, or to auto­mat­i­cal­ly delete cook­ies when clos­ing your brows­er. Dis­abling cook­ies may lim­it the func­tion­al­i­ty of this web­site.

5. Plugins and tools

Google Web Fonts

For uni­form rep­re­sen­ta­tion of fonts, this page uses web fonts pro­vid­ed by Google. When you open a page, your brows­er loads the required web fonts into your brows­er cache to dis­play texts and fonts cor­rect­ly.

For this pur­pose your brows­er has to estab­lish a direct con­nec­tion to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the inter­est of a uni­form and attrac­tive pre­sen­ta­tion of our web­site. This con­sti­tutes a legit­i­mate inter­est with­in the mean­ing of Art. 6 paraghraph 1, let­ter f of DSG­VO.

If your brows­er does not sup­port web fonts, a stan­dard font is used by your com­put­er.
