3. Data collection on our website

3.1 cookies

Some of the websites use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer 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 we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting 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 you close the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you require (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for analyzing your surfing behavior) are stored, these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.

3.2 Server log files

The provider of the pages 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 will not be merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

4. Cooperation with contract processors and third parties

If we disclose data to other persons and companies (contract processors or third parties) as part of our processing, transmit them to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this is only done on the basis of legal permission (e.g. if the data is transmitted to third parties, such as to payment service providers, according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR is required to fulfill the contract), you have consented, a legal obligation provides for this or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).
If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called "order processing contract", this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.

4.1 Transfers to third countries

If we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) or if this happens in the context of the use of third-party services or disclosure or transmission of data to third parties, this will only take place if it happens to fulfill our (pre) contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or have the data processed in a third country only if the special requirements of Art. 44 ff. GDPR are met. This means that processing is carried out, for example, on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination of a data protection level corresponding to the EU (e.g. for the USA through the "Privacy Shield") or compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations (so-called "standard contractual clauses").

4.2 Integration of services and content from third parties

We use content or service offers from third-party providers within our online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. Integrate services such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”).
This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since they would not be able to send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We strive to only use content whose respective provider only uses the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party providers can also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. The "pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information can also be stored in cookies on the user's device and contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and other information about the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.

4.3 Google Fonts

We use Google Fonts on our website to display external fonts. This is a service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. Through certification according to the EU-US data protection shield ("EU-US Privacy Shield") https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active Google guarantees that the EU's data protection requirements will also be complied with when processing data in the USA. In order 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 Article 6 (1) lit.f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the optimization and economic operation of our website. Through the connection to Google established when you visit our website, Google can determine from which website your request was sent and to which IP address the representation of the font is to be transmitted. Google offers below https://policies.google.com/privacy further information, in particular about the possibilities of preventing the use of data.

4.5 Google

We appreciate the trust you have placed in us and we know that it is our responsibility to protect your data. We therefore inform you about what data we collect when you use our products and services, why we collect the data and how we optimize our products and services on the basis of this data. In the Data protection declaration and the data protection principles of Google is described how we handle personal data when you use our products and services, including Google Analytics.
In Google Analytics, interactions of visitors (users) on websites are primarily recorded using their own cookies. Users can deactivate cookies or delete them individually. Further information
In addition, an optional Browser add-on supports. If users install and activate it, their data will be prevented from being recorded by Google Analytics when they visit websites. However, the add-on only deactivates Google Analytics. If the Google Analytics for Apps SDK or Google Analytics for Firebase SDK is used on a website or in an app, an app instance ID is recorded by Google Analytics. This is a randomly generated number that identifies a single app installation. If a user resets their advertising ID on Android or iOS, the app instance ID is also reset.
If Google Analytics has been implemented in apps or websites together with other Google advertising products such as Google Ads, additional advertising IDs may be collected. Users can use this function in the Advertising settings deactivate and change your settings for this cookie. Further information
IP addresses (Internet protocol addresses) are also recorded in Google Analytics to ensure the security of the service and to provide website owners with information about the country, region or city their users come from. This is also known as IP geolocation. In Google Analytics, recorded IP addresses can be anonymized using so-called IP masks. Please see below for more information. However, website owners have access to the IP addresses of their users even when Google Analytics is not used.
