4. DATA COLLECTION ON OUR WEBSITE – COOKIES
Most of the cookies we use are “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted at the end of your visit to the website. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to identify your browser the next time you visit our website.
SERVER LOG FILES
The provider of the web pages automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. These include:
Browser type and browser version, the operating system you use, referrer URL
Host name of accessing computer, time of server query
This data will not be combined with other data sources.
The legal basis for the processing of the data is Article 6 (1) point f) of the GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us enquiries through the contact form, your data from the contact form, including the contact details you indicate there, will be stored by us for purposes of processing your enquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We shall not share this data without your consent.
The processing of the data submitted through the contact form therefore takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6 (1) point a) of the GDPR). You can withdraw this consent any time. You can do this simply by sending an informal message to us via e-mail. The legality of the data processing already carried out before withdrawal will not be affected by the withdrawal.
The data you submit via the contact form will remain with us until either you instruct us to delete it, you withdraw your consent for its storage or the purpose for its storage ceases to exist (e.g. after the processing of your inquiry is completed). Mandatory legal provisions– particularly those concerning retention periods – shall remain unaffected.
5. ANALYSIS TOOLS UND ADVERTISING / GOOGLE ANALYTICS
This website uses functions of the web analysis service, Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
The legal basis for storage of Google Analytics cookies is Article 6 (1) point f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour, in order to optimise both his web content and also his adverts.
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This function ensures that your IP-address will first be truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or in other States which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, before it is transmitted to the USA.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide other services related to the use of the website and Internet traffic in general to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser to Google Analytics will not be merged with other data by Google.
You can prevent the storage of your data through the relevant settings of your browser software; We would like to point out, however, that in this case you may probably not be able to use all the functions of this website fully. Furthermore, you can prevent the transmission of data generated by cookies regarding your usage of the website (including your IP address) to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available through the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out-cookie will be stored on your computer and this will prevent collection of your data when you visit the website in future: Deactivating Google Analytics.
Order data processing
We have signed a contract for order data processing with Google, and fully implement the strict guidelines of the German Data Protection Authorities when using Google Analytics.
Demographic features of Google Analytics
This website uses the “demographic features” from Google Analytics. Through this function, reports containing statements about age, gender and interests of the website visitor can be compiled. This data originates from interest-related adverts by Google and from visitor data from third party providers. This data cannot be associated with any particular person. You can deactivate this function any time via the display settings in your Google account, or you can generally reject the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section on “Objection to data collection”.
We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter known as “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. The provider of this service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).
Through reCAPTCHA, we can verify whether the data input on our website (e.g. in a contact form) is being entered by a human being or an automated programme. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor using different features. The analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor accesses the website. For analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various pieces of information (e.g. IP address, length of stay on the website by the website visitor or the mouse movements made by the user). Data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.
Analysis performed by reCAPTCHA runs completely in the background. Website users are not alerted to the fact that there is an analysis running in the background.
The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 (1) point f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting his online content against improper use for automated spying and against SPAM.
6. PLUG-INS AND TOOLS / GOOGLE WEB FONTS
This website uses the Web Fonts provided by Google, for the purposes of uniform display of fonts on the website. When you access a web page, your browser will load the necessary web fonts into the browser cache memory for the purposes of displaying texts and fonts correctly.
To do this, the browser you are using must establish a connection with the Google servers. Through this act, Google will get to know that our website was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts takes place in the interest of having a uniform and attractive display of our online content. This constitutes a legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 (1) point f) of the GDPR.
If your browser does not support Web Fonts, you computer will use a standard font.
This website uses the map services of Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary for us to store your IP address. This information is normally sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this website has no influence on this data transfer.
The use of Google Maps takes place in the interest of attractively displaying our online content and easily locating places indicated on our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 (1) point f) of the GDPR.
