7. Cookies

In order to grant our website an attractive design and to offer specific features to users, we use so called cookies on some of our web pages. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device. Some of the implemented cookies are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal device, enabling us or our partner companies (cookies of third-party providers) to recognize your browser upon your next visit (persistent cookies). When cookies are placed, they collect and process specific user information in each individual case, such as browser and location data as well as IP address. Persistent cookies will be automatically deleted after a pre-set time which may vary depending on the cookie. In some cases, cookies are used to simplify the ordering process by saving settings (e.g. remembering the contents of a virtual shopping basket for a later visit to the website). Insofar as personal data is being processed by individual cookies implemented by us, this takes place in compliance with art. 6, para. 1, lit. b GDPR, either for the performance of the contract or, in compliance with art. 6, para. 1, lit. f GDPR, where it is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests aiming at the best possible functionality of the website as well as a client-friendly and effective arrangement of the website visit.

 

  • Session Cookies

We use session cookies which are archived only during the current visit to our website (e.g. to store your login status and thus enable the use of our online offer). A randomly generated unique identification number, called a session ID, is stored in each session cookie. Furthermore, the cookie contains information about its origin and the storage period. These cookies cannot store other data.  Session cookies are deleted as soon as you stop using our online offer and log out or change the browser settings, for example.

 

  • Cookies for range measurement and website improvement.

Based on our legitimate interest (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offers, as set forth in art. 6. para. 1, lit. f GDPR), we use the following cookies for the range measurement and analysis of use, aiming at improving our website.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the users is usually transferred to a server of Google in the USA and stored there.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thus guarantees compliance with the European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).

Google will use this information on our behalf, in order to allow us to evaluate the user’s use of our online offer, to compile reports about the internal activities of this online offer and to provide us with further services connected to the use of this online offer and the Internet. In this process, pseudonymous user profiles can be created with the processed data.

We only implement Google Analytics with active IP anonymization. That means that the IP address of the user is abbreviated by Google in its route inside of the Member States of the European Union or other countries which are contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the complete IP address is transferred to the server of Google in the USA and abbreviated there.

The IP address of the user transferred by the browser is not merged with other data of Google. Users can prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting the settings on their browser software; furthermore, users can prevent that the data generated by the cookie and connected to your use of our online offer is transferred to Google and processed by Google. For that, you can download and install the browser plugin available at: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

This feature is employed to present to visitors of this website interest-based advertisements (“Facebook ads”) when using the social network Facebook. For this purpose, the Facebook remarketing tag has been implemented on this website. Upon a visit to this website, a direct connection to the Facebook servers is established by means of this tag. In the course of this, Facebook is notified that you have visited this website and thus adds this information to your personal Facebook account. More detailed information concerning the collection and use of data by Facebook, as well as the rights and possibilities with regard to privacy protection are available in the Privacy Policy of Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

The browser of the website’s visitor stores so called “cookies,” which are text files stored on your computer enabling the user to be recognized when visiting websites that belong to the advertising network of Google. Advertisements related to contents accessed by the user on websites that implement the remarketing feature of Google can then be displayed to the user on those websites. According to its own statements, Google does not collect personal data in the course of this process.

Among the Google marketing services that we use is the online advertising program “Google AdWords.” In the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords client receives a different “conversion cookie.” Cookies can therefore not be tracked across the websites of AdWords clients. The information obtained by means of the cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords clients that have opted for conversion tracking. AdWords clients are notified about the total number of users that have clicked on their advertisement and have been forwarded to a web page furnished with a conversion tracking tag. However, no information that personally identifies the user is obtained in this process. Based on the Google marketing service “DoubleClick,” we can integrate our own advertisements or advertisements of third parties.  DoubleClick uses cookies which enable Google and its partner sites to place advertisements based on users’ visits to this site or other sites on the Internet.
