YouTube

For inte­gra­tion and display of video content, our website uses plugins from YouTube. Provider of the video portal is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

When a page with inte­grated YouTube plugin is called up, a connec­tion to the YouTube servers is estab­lished. This tells YouTube which of our pages you have visited.

YouTube can assign your surfing beha­vior directly to your personal profile, if you are logged in to your YouTube account. By logging out you have the possi­bi­lity to prevent this.

YouTube is used in the inte­rest of an attrac­tive presen­ta­tion of our online offers. This repres­ents a legi­ti­mate inte­rest in the sense of Art. 6 para­graph 1 lit. f GDPR.

Details on the hand­ling of user data can be found in the YouTube privacy policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

Cookies

Our website uses cookies. They are small text files which are stored on the device with which you access this website. Cookies help us make our website more user-friendly, effec­tive and safe.

Most of the cookies we use are “session cookies”. They are auto­ma­ti­cally deleted after your browser session ends. However, other cookies remain on your device until you delete them yourself. These cookies enable us to reco­gnize your browser on your next visit.

You can monitor, delete or prevent cookies via your internet browser settings. Many internet brow­sers can be confi­gured so that cookies are deleted auto­ma­ti­cally when you close the program. Disab­ling cookies may limit the func­tio­n­a­lity of this website.

Cookies that are required to carry out the elec­tronic commu­ni­ca­tion process or to provide certain func­tions that you have requested (e.g. shop­ping basket func­tion) are stored on the basis of Art. 6(1)f GDPR. The website operator has a legi­ti­mate inte­rest in the storage of cookies for the tech­ni­cally flaw­less and opti­mized provi­sion of its services. If other cookies are set (e.g. for analysis func­tions), these are dealt with sepa­r­ately in this Privacy Policy

Google Analy­tics

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

Google Analy­tics uses so-called cookies, text files, which are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyze your use of the website. As a rule, the infor­ma­tion gene­rated by the cookie about your use of this website (inclu­ding your IP address), is trans­ferred to a Google server in the US and stored there.
The setting of Google Analy­tics cookies is based on Art. 6(1)f GDPR. Our justi­fied inte­rest in the use of this service derives from the fact that we must be able to analyze and opti­mize the use of our website

IP anony­miz­a­tion

We use Google Analy­tics in conjunc­tion with the IP anony­miz­a­tion func­tion. It ensures that Google shor­tens the IP address for those resi­ding within member states of the Euro­pean Union or in other states party to the Euro­pean Economic Area before sending it to the USA. The full IP address will only be trans­ferred to a Google server in the US and shor­tened there in excep­tional cases. Google uses this infor­ma­tion on behalf of the website owner in order to evaluate your website use, to compile reports about website acti­vi­ties and to provide the website owner with other services asso­ciated with the website and internet use. The IP address trans­mitted by your browser in the context of Google Analy­tics is not merged with other Google data.

Browser Plugin

You can prevent the storage of cookies with the rele­vant setting on your browser soft­ware. We do, however, point out that in this case, you might not be able to use all func­tions of this website to the full extent. You can also prevent the collec­tion of data as gene­rated by the cookie, which refers to your website use inclu­ding your IP address, is sent to and being processed by Google, by down­loading and instal­ling the appro­priate browser add-on: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

The right to object data collection

Alter­na­tively, you can prevent the collec­tion of data by Google Analy­tics by setting a specific opt-out cookie, which prevents the future collec­tion of your data when visi­ting this website.

You can obtain further infor­ma­tion in Google’s terms of use and the over­view of data protec­tion. For more infor­ma­tion about Terms of Use and Privacy, please see
https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

Order proces­sing

To fully comply with the legal data protec­tion requi­re­ments, we have concluded a contract with Google for order processing.

Demo­gra­phic data in Google Analytics

We have enabled the Google Analy­tics func­tion “demo­gra­phic data” on our website. It can be used to gene­rate reports that contain infor­ma­tion about age, gender and inte­rests of visi­tors to the site. This data comes from inte­rest-based adver­ti­sing by Google as well as from visitor data from third parties. 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 the collec­tion of your data by Google Analy­tics, as explained in the section “Opting out of data collection”.
