5.1 Cookies
Our websites use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that do not cause any damage to your device. They are stored on your device either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies). Session cookies are automatically deleted when you end your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them or an automatic deletion by your web browser takes place.

Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as some website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping cart function or the display of videos).

In some cases, cookies from third parties (third-party cookies) may also be stored on your device when you visit our website. These enable us or you to use certain services provided by the third party.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions are processed based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically flawless and optimized provision of its services.

You can find out which cookies we currently use on our website and further information on them via this link: Cookie Settings

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the placing of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are disabled, the functionality of this website may be limited.

If cookies are used by third parties or for analysis purposes, we will inform you about this separately within this privacy policy and, if necessary, we will request your consent.

5.2 Cookie consent with Usercentrics
This website uses the cookie consent technology from Usercentrics to obtain your consent for the storage of certain cookies on your device and to document this in compliance with the data protection regulations.
The provider of this technology is Usercentrics GmbH, Rosental 4, 80331 Munich, Website: https://usercentrics.com/de/ (hereinafter referred to as "Usercentrics").

When you enter our website, the following personal data is transferred to Usercentrics:

  • Your consent(s) or the withdrawal of your consent(s)
  • Your IP address
  • Information about your browser
  • Information about your device
  • Time of your visit to the website
  •  

Furthermore, Usercentrics stores a cookie in your browser in order to be able to assign to you the consents given or your withdrawal. The data collected in this way is stored until you ask us to delete it, you delete the Usercentrics cookie yourself or the purpose for data storage no longer applies. Mandatory legal storage obligations remain unaffected.

The use of Usercentrics takes place in order to obtain the legally required consents for the use of cookies. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR.

5.3 Server Log Files
The provider of the websites automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.  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
  •  

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the technically flawless presentation and optimization of our website – for this purpose, the server log files have to be recorded.

5.4 Contact by e-mail, phone or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, phone or fax, your request, including any personal data resulting from it, will be processed and stored by us for the purpose of processing your request.

The processing of this data is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, provided that your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). Our legitimate interest lies in the effective processing of the enquiries addressed to us.

The data you send to us will remain with us until you request us to delete it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory statutory provisions, in particular statutory retention periods, remain unaffected.

5.5 Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to analyze and statistically evaluate the website usage. The resulting data is used to optimize our website as well as our advertising measures.

Google Analytics is a web analytics service operated and provided by Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; for Europe: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland).

Currently, there is no adequacy decision for the transfer of personal data to the United States. This does not ensure the security of the processing of personal data as under the European regulations. In particular, if personal data is transferred to the United States, there is a risk that US security authorities may have access to your personal data under the so-called "US-CLOUD Act" (regardless of the storage location) and process it for their own purposes.

The processing of your data is done on the basis of the consent you have given in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with Art. 49 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

Type of personal data

During your website visit, the following data, among others, is recorded:

  • Visitor-related data
    IP address (in truncated form, so that no clear assignment is possible)
    Origin (country and city)
    Language
    Operating system
    Device (PC, tablet or smartphone)
    Browsers and all used add-ons
    Resolution of the computer
  • Traffic data
    Origin from which the request comes (via which website or through which advertising material you came to us)

Google processes the website usage data on our behalf and contractually undertakes to take measures to ensure the confidentiality of the processed data. We have concluded a data processing agreement with Google. Google also processes this data for its own purposes (e.g. for profiling or linking to possible Google accounts).

The data collected by means of the "cookies" about your website usage is usually transferred to a Google server in the United States for analysis and stored there.

Storage time

Google Analytics stores cookies in your web browser for two years since your last visit. These cookies contained a randomly generated user ID with which you can be recognized on future website visits.

The recorded data is stored together with a randomly generated user ID, which enables the evaluation of pseudonymous user profiles. This user-related data is automatically deleted by us after two months.

Anonymize IP

This website uses IP anonymization (masking function "anonymizeIP"). The IP address of the users is truncated within the member states of the European Union and the European Economic Area and transmitted only anonymously. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

Withdrawal/Objection

You can prevent this processing by:

It is possible to set your browser so that no "cookies" are stored. However, this may result in our website not being fully functional.
