3. Information on data processing

Your data processed during the use of our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies, the deletion of the data does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations and no other information is provided below on individual processing procedures.

Server data

For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted by your Internet browser to us or to our web space provider. These so-called server log files are used to collect, among other things, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you accessed our website (referrer URL), the website(s) of our website that you visit, the date and time of the respective access as well as the IP address of the Internet connection from which the use of our website takes place. The data collected in this way is stored temporarily, but not together with other data about you. This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website. The data is deleted again after seven days at the latest, unless further storage is required for evidence purposes. Otherwise, the data is exempt from deletion in whole or in part until final clarification of an incident.

Cookies

a) Session cookies/Session cookies

We use so-called cookies with our Internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are placed and stored on your terminal device by the Internet browser you use. Through these cookies, certain information from you, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, is processed to an individual extent. This processing makes our website more user-friendly, effective and secure, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our website in different languages or the offer of a shopping cart function. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit b.) DSGVO, insofar as these cookies data are processed for contract initiation or contract execution. If the processing does not serve the purpose of initiating or executing a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. When you close your internet browser, these session cookies are deleted.

b) Third-party cookies

Where applicable, cookies from partner companies with which we cooperate for the purposes of advertising, analysis or the functionalities of our website are also used with our website. The details of this, in particular the purposes and legal basis for the processing of such third-party cookies, can be found in the following information.

c) Removal option

You can prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by setting your internet browser. Likewise, you can delete already stored cookies at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on your specific Internet browser used. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. In the case of so-called Flash cookies, however, processing cannot be prevented via the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the specific Flash player you use. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash player or contact the manufacturer or user support. However, if you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, this may mean that not all functions of our website can be fully used.

Contract processing

The data you provide for the use of our goods and/or services are processed by us for the purpose of contract execution and are necessary to this extent. Conclusion and processing of the contract are not possible without the provision of your data. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. We delete the data with complete contract execution, but must observe the retention periods under tax and commercial law. In the context of contract processing, we pass on your data to the transport company commissioned with the delivery of goods or to the financial service provider, insofar as the transfer is necessary for the delivery of goods or for payment purposes. The legal basis for the transfer of data is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO.

Newsletter

If you register for our free newsletter, the data you requested for this purpose, i.e. your e-mail address and – optionally – your name and address, will be transmitted to us. At the same time, we store the IP address of the Internet connection from which you access our website as well as the date and time of your registration. During the further registration process, we will ask for your consent to send you the newsletter, describe the content in detail and refer to this privacy policy. We use the data collected in this process exclusively for sending the newsletter – in particular, they are therefore not passed on to third parties. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. In accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO, you can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time with effect for the future. To do so, you only need to inform us of your revocation or use the unsubscribe link contained in each newsletter.

Contact requests / contact option

If you contact us via contact form or e-mail, the data you provide will be used to process your request. The provision of the data is necessary for processing and answering your request – without their provision, we can not answer your request or at best limited. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. Your data will be deleted if your request has been answered conclusively and the deletion does not conflict with any legal obligations to retain data, such as in the case of any subsequent contract processing.

User contributions, comments and ratings

We offer you the opportunity to publish questions, answers, opinions or ratings, hereinafter referred to as “contributions”, on our website. If you make use of this offer, we process and publish your contribution, date and time of submission as well as the pseudonym used by you, if applicable. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. In accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO, you can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To do this, you only need to inform us of your revocation. In addition, we also process your IP and e-mail address. The IP address is processed because we have a legitimate interest in initiating or supporting further steps if your contribution infringes the rights of third parties and/or it is otherwise illegal. The legal basis in this case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the legal defense that may be necessary.

YouTube

We maintain an online presence on YouTube to present our company and our services and to communicate with customers/prospects. YouTube is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA. In this respect, we would like to point out that there is a possibility that user data may be processed outside the European Union, in particular in the USA. This may pose increased risks to users in that, for example, it may be more difficult to access user data at a later date. We also do not have access to this user data. The access possibility lies exclusively with YouTube. The privacy policy of YouTube can be found at httpss://policies.google.com/privacy.

Linking social media via graphic or text link

We also promote presences on the social networks listed below on our website. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents a connection from being automatically established to the respective server of the social network when a website with a social media advertisement is called up in order to display a graphic of the respective network itself. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic is the user redirected to the service of the respective social network. After the user has been forwarded, information about the user is collected by the respective network. It cannot be ruled out here that processing of the data collected in this way takes place in the USA. This is initially data such as IP address, date, time and page visited. If the user is logged into his user account of the respective network during this time, the network operator may be able to assign the collected information of the specific visit of the user to the personal account of the user. If the user interacts via a “Share” button of the respective network, this information can be stored in the user’s personal user account and may be published. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking on the graphic. In addition, it is possible to configure the respective user account accordingly. The following social networks are integrated into our site by linking:

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our website. This is a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. The Google Analytics service is used to analyze the usage behavior of our website. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website. Usage and user-related information, such as IP address, location, time or frequency of visits to our website, is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization function. Through this function, Google already shortens the IP address within the EU or EEA. The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of the visit to our website and the usage activities there. This data may also be used to provide other services related to the use of our website and the use of the Internet. Google states that it will not associate your IP address with any other data. In addition, Google provides further data protection information for you at httpss://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners, e.g. on the options for preventing the use of data. In addition, Google offers a so-called deactivation add-on together with further information on this at httpss://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. This add-on can be installed with the most common Internet browsers and offers you further control over the data that Google collects when you visit our website. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that information about the visit to our website should not be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services. If and which other web analytics services are used by us, you will of course also find out in this privacy policy.

Google Fonts

On our website, we use Google Fonts to display external fonts. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. To enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established when our website is accessed. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the optimization and economic operation of our website. Through the connection to Google established when calling up our internet presence, Google can determine from which website your request has been sent and to which IP address the display of the font is to be transmitted. Google offers further information at httpss://adssettings.google.com/authenticated httpss://policies.google.com/privacy, in particular on the options for preventing the use of data.

YouTube

We use YouTube on our website. This is a video portal of YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, hereinafter referred to as “YouTube”. YouTube is a subsidiary of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. We use YouTube in connection with the “Enhanced Privacy Mode” function in order to be able to show you videos. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in improving the quality of our website. According to YouTube, the “enhanced data protection mode” function means that the data described in more detail below is only transmitted to the YouTube server when you actually start a video. Without this “Enhanced Privacy Mode”, a connection to the YouTube server in the USA is established as soon as you call up one of our Internet pages on which a YouTube video is embedded. This connection is necessary to be able to display the respective video on our website via your Internet browser. In the course of this, YouTube will at least record and process your IP address, the date and time as well as the website you visited. In addition, a connection to Google’s advertising network “DoubleClick” is established. If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube will assign the connection information to your YouTube account. If you wish to prevent this, you must either log out of YouTube before visiting our website or make the appropriate settings in your YouTube user account. For the purpose of functionality as well as for the analysis of user behavior, YouTube permanently stores cookies on your end device via your Internet browser. If you do not agree with this processing, you have the option to prevent the storage of cookies by a setting in your Internet browser. You can find more information on this above under “Cookies”. Google provides further information on the collection and use of data as well as your rights and protection options in this regard in the data protection information available at httpss://policies.google.com/privacy.

Google AdWords with conversion tracking

In our website, we use the advertising component Google AdWords and the so-called conversion tracking. This is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. We use the conversion tracking for targeted advertising of our offer. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website. If you click on an ad placed by Google, the conversion tracking we use stores a cookie on your terminal device. These so-called conversion cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve to identify you personally. If the cookie is still valid and you visit a specific page of our website, both we and Google can evaluate that you have clicked on one of our ads placed on Google and that you have subsequently been redirected to our website. Google uses the information obtained in this way to provide us with statistics about visits to our website. In addition, this provides us with information about the number of users who clicked on our ad(s) and about the pages of our website that were subsequently accessed. However, neither we nor third parties who also use Google AdWords are able to identify you in this way. You can also prevent or restrict the installation of cookies using the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. At the same time, you can delete cookies that have already been stored at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on your specific Internet browser used. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. Furthermore, Google also offers further information on this topic and in particular on the options for preventing data use at httpss://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html httpss://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/ https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

Google AdSense

In our website, we use Google AdSense to integrate advertisements. This is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. Google AdSense stores cookies as well as so-called web beacons on your end device via your internet browser. This enables Google to analyze how you use our website. The information collected in this way, along with your IP address and the advertising formats displayed to you, is transferred to Google in the USA and stored there. Furthermore, Google may pass this information on to contractual partners. However, Google declares that your IP address would not be merged with other data of yours. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website. If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. Details on this can be found above under the item “Cookies”. In addition, Google offers further information at httpss://policies.google.com/privacy httpss://adssettings.google.com/authenticated, in particular on the options for preventing the use of data.

Google Remarketing or “Similar Target Groups” Component by Google

We use the remarketing or “similar target groups” function on our website. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. We use this function to display interest-based, personalized advertising on third-party websites that also participate in Google’s advertising network. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website. In order to enable this advertising service, Google stores a cookie with a sequence of numbers on your terminal device during your visit to our website via your internet browser. This cookie records both your visit and the use of our website in anonymized form. However, no personal data is passed on in the process. If you subsequently visit the website of a third party that also uses the Google advertising network, advertisements may appear that relate to our website or our offers there. To permanently disable this function, Google offers a browser plugin for the most common Internet browsers via httpss://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. The use of cookies from certain providers can also be deactivated by opting out via https://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices or https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/, for example. Through cross-device marketing, Google may be able to track your usage behavior across multiple devices, so that you may be shown interest-based, personalized advertising even if you switch devices. However, this requires that you have consented to the linking of your browsing history with your existing Google account. Google offers further information on Google Remarketing at httpss://www.google.com/privacy/ads/.
