3. Data collection on our website

Cookies

This website uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our online offering more user friendly, effective and safer. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies." These cookies are deleted automatically at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your end device until you delete them. These cookies make it possible for us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.

You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed of the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies in specific cases or in general and automatically delete cookies when saving the browser. Deactivating cookies may result in limited functionality of this website.

Cookies which are required for electronic communication procedures or the provision of specific functions you desire (e.g. shopping cart function) are saved based on Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in saving cookies for the technical error-free and optimized provision of their services. If other cookies are saved (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behavior), they are handled separately in this privacy protection declaration.

Deactivating cookies of all or specific websites

You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed of the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies in specific cases or in general and automatically delete cookies when saving the browser. Deactivating cookies may result in limited functionality of websites.

Server log files

The provider of this website automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files which your browser sends to us automatically. This includes:

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

This information is not merged with other information sources. The basis for this information processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 letter b of the GDPR, which permits the processing of information for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form

If you would like to send us requests using a contact form, your input from the request form – including contact information specified by you there – is saved by us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of any follow-up questions. We do not pass on this information without your consent.

Processing of the information entered in the contact form thus occurs solely based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 letter a of the GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. A free-form message via e-mail sent to us is sufficient for this. The legality of information processing instances which occurred prior to the withdrawal of consent remains unaffected by the withdrawal.

The information you enter in the contact form remains with us until you request that we delete it, withdraw your consent to save it or the reason for saving the information no longer exists (e.g. once your request has been processed to completion). Any mandatory legal regulations – retention periods in particular – remain unaffected.

You can register on our website to use additional functions on the site. Information entered here is used by us solely for the purpose of utilizing the respective offer or service for which you registered. Required information requested during registration must be fully specified. Otherwise, we will decline the registration.

Collected customer information is deleted following termination of the contract or business relationship. Legally binding retention periods remain unaffected by this

4. Data collection by Google products

The Google Analytics analysis program

This website uses functions of the Google Analytics web analysis service. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States of America.

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies." Cookies are text files which are stored on your computer and which allow the analysis of use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to and stored on a Google server in the United States.

Google Analytics cookies are saved based on Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behavior for optimizing both their online offering and their advertisements.

IP anonymization of Google Analytics

We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This causes Google to truncate your IP address within member states of the European Union and in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transferred to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the entire IP address transferred to a Google server in the United States and truncated there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide additional services associated with the use of this website and Internet use to the website operator. The IP address transferred from your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other information by Google.

Objection to information collection by Google Analytics

You can prevent the storage of cookies by making a corresponding setting in your browser software. We would like to point out, however, that you may not be able to fully utilize all the function of this website in this case.

Order data processing by Google Analytics

Google AdWords and Google conversion tracking

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

Within the context of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. If you click an advertisement placed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is set. Cookies are small text files stored on the computer of the user by the web browser. These cookies become invalid after 30 days and do not serve to personally identify the user. If the user visits specific pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, both we and Google are able to identify that the user has clicked the advertisement and was directed to this page.

Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked via the website of AdWords customers. Information gathered using conversion cookies serve to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have chosen to use conversion tracking. Customers are provided with information on the total number of users who clicked their advertisement and were directed to a page featuring a conversion tracking tag.

However, they do not receive any information with which users can be identified. If you would not like to participate in tracking, you can object to its use by easily deactivating the cookie of Google conversion tracking using your web browser in the user settings. This results in your not being included in conversion tracking statistics.

Conversion cookies are saved based on Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behavior for optimizing both their online offering and their advertisements. More information on Google AdWords and Google conversion tracking can be found in the privacy protection regulations of Google:
https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed of the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies in specific cases or in general and automatically delete cookies when saving the browser. Deactivating cookies may result in limited functionality of this website.
