Revocation of your consent to data processing

Some data processing procedures are only possible with your express consent. A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of the data processing up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

The responsible supervisory authority with regard to data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based.

Right to data transferability

You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to yourself or to third parties. It is provided in a machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that data that you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the "https://" address line of your browser and the lock symbol in the browser line.

This data is not merged with other data sources. Data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Newsletter Data

To send our newsletter we need an e-mail address from you. A verification of the given e-mail address is necessary and the receipt of the newsletter is to be consented. Additional data is not collected or is voluntary. The data will only be used for sending the newsletter.

The data provided during the newsletter registration will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).

Cookies

Our website uses cookies. These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. Cookies help us to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. 

Some cookies are "session cookies." Such cookies are deleted automatically at the end of your browser session. However, other cookies will remain on your device until you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us to recognize you when you return to our website.

You can use a modern web browser to monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured so that cookies are automatically deleted when the program is closed. Deactivation of cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.

The setting of cookies, which are necessary for the exercise of electronic communication processes or the provision of certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket), takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and smooth provision of our services. If other cookies are set (e.g. for analysis functions), these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.

Google Analytics

Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. Provider of the web analysis service is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses "cookies." These are small text files that your web browser stores on your end device and enable an analysis of website usage. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Server location is usually the USA.

Google Analytics cookies are set on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise our website and, where applicable, our advertising.

IP anonymization

We use Google Analytics in conjunction with IP anonymization. It ensures that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the USA. There may be exceptional cases in which Google transmits the full IP address to a server in the USA and shortens it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Browser plugin

The setting of cookies by your web browser is preventable. However, some functions of our website may be restricted by this. You may also opt out of the collection of information about your use of the website, including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Objection to data collection

You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set which prevents the collection of your data on future visits to our website: Disable Google Analytics.

Details on how Google Analytics handles user data can be found in Google's privacy policy: support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245.

Job processing

To fully comply with legal data protection requirements, we have concluded an order processing agreement with Google.

Demographic features on Google Analytics

Our website uses the "demographic features" function of Google Analytics. It can be used to create reports that contain information on the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-related advertising by Google and from visitor data from third-party providers. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time. You can do this through the ad settings in your Google Account or by generally prohibiting Google Analytics from collecting your information, as explained in the "Opt-out of data collection" section.

Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking

Our website uses Google AdWords. Provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.

AdWords is an online advertising program. As part of the online advertising program, we work with conversion tracking. After a click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your end device. Google AdWords cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. The cookie enables Google and we to recognize that you clicked on an ad and were redirected to our website.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies are not trackable through AdWords customer websites. Conversion cookies are used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. Adwords customers can see how many users clicked on their ad and were redirected to pages with a conversion tracking tag. However, AdWords customers do not receive any information that enables personal identification of users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to its use. Here, the conversion cookie must be deactivated in the user settings of the browser. Thus no inclusion in the conversion tracking statistics takes place.

Conversion cookies" are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We as website operators have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise our website and our advertising.

Details on Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking can be found in Google's privacy policy: www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

You can use a modern web browser to monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Deactivation of cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.
