Cookies

Websites sometimes use what are known as Cookies. Cookies do not do any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies that we use are known as “session cookies”. There are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. The cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser again next time you visit.

You can set your browser in such a way that you are notified about the storage of cookies and to only allow cookies once, accept cookies for specific cases or generally exclude them, as well as automatically delete cookies when you close your browser. This website’s functionality may be restricted if cookies are disabled.

Cookies are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide specific functions that you need (e.g. basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies to ensure that services that it provides are technically flawless and optimised. If other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, they are handled separately in the privacy policy.

Server log files

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

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of computer trying to gain access
  • Time of server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other sources of data.

The legal basis for collecting this data is Art. 6, (1) (f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in displaying its website in a way that is technically flawless, and in optimising it – thus, server log files must be collected for this purpose. 

Contact form

When you send us enquiries by the contact form, we store your data from the contact form including the contact details given for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in the event of any follow-up queries. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR). You may revoke this consent at any time. To do this, just send us an informal message to let us know. The legality of the data processing procedures that have already taken place up to the objection shall remain unaffected by the objection.

The data you entered in the contact form shall remain with us until you request its deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose of storing data no longer applies (e.g. once your enquiry has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – shall remain unaffected.

Registering on this website

You can register on our website to use additional functions on the site. We only use the data entered for this purpose to utilise the respective site or service that you have registered for. The mandatory data that are requested during registration must be given in full. Otherwise, we will reject the registration.

For important changes such as the scope of the website, or if technical changes are required, we will use the email address given during registration to notify you in this manner.

The legal basis for processing data entered during registration is your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR). You may revoke any consent you have given at any time. To do this, just send us an informal message to let us know. The legality of the data processing that has already taken place shall remain unaffected by the objection.

The data collected during registration is saved by us as long as you are registered on our website and then deleted. Statutory retention periods shall remain unaffected.

5. Social media

Sharing content via plugins (Facebook, Google+1, Twitter & Co.)

Content on our pages can be shared on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+ in a way that is compliant with data privacy law. This site uses the eRecht24 Safe Sharing Tool for this. This tool only establishes a direct contact between networks and users when the users actively click on this button.

User data is not automatically transmitted to operators of this platform by this tool. If the user is registered with one of the social networks, an information window appears when using the social buttons from Facebook, Google+1, Twitter & Co., in which the user can confirm the text before sending.

Users may share the contents of this site on social networks in a way that is compliant with data privacy law without full surf profiles being created by network operators.

6. Analysis tools and advertising

Facebook Pixel

Our website uses the Pixel user action from Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) to measure conversions.

In this way, site visitor behaviour can be tracked after they have been redirected to a provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook ad. Facebook ad effectiveness can be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes, and future advertising campaigns can be optimised as a result.

The data collected is anonymous to us as the operator of this website, we cannot draw any conclusions as to user identity. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook provided that a connection can be established to the respective user profile, and Facebook can use data for its own advertising purposes, in line with Facebook’s Data Usage Guidelines. As a result, Facebook can enable ads to appear on Facebook pages, as well as outside Facebook. As the website operator, we cannot influence this type of data use.

You can find additional notes on protecting your privacy in Facebook's data privacy notes: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

You can also disable the “Custom Audiences” remarketing function in ad settings at https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. You must be registered with Facebook to do this.

If you don't have a Facebook account, you can disable user-based advertising from Facebook on the website of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of your data and email address, as well as its use for sending the newsletter at any time via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing procedures that have already taken place shall remain unaffected by the objection.
