  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page)

Cookies

We use so-called cookies on our website. These are small files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your terminal device when you visit our site. The use of so-called necessary cookies helps us to make our website more appealing to you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted after leaving our site. In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimize the degree of user-friendliness, which are stored on your terminal device for a certain specified period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognized that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made, so that you do not have to enter them again (e.g. shopping cart function). You can set your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer, or a notice always appears before a new cookie is stored. The complete deactivation of cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of our website. You can also delete stored cookies yourself at any time.

e-tracker

This website also uses technologies from e-tracker GmbH (www.etracker.com) to collect and store data for marketing and optimization purposes. From this data, usage profiles can be created under a pseudonym. Cookies are used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the site visitor’s Internet browser. The cookies allow the recognition of the Internet browser. The data collected with the etracker technologies will not be used to personally identify the visitor to this website without the consent of the person concerned (to be granted separately), and it will not be merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. Reference is made to this data protection policy and the technologies of etracker-GmbH when the user accesses the homepage. The identification of the user and the merging of data only takes place if the visitor has actively given their consent via the so-called “cookie box”. The visitor can revoke their consent at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation. Incidentally, data collection and storage can be objected to at any time with effect for the future.

Google Analytics

This website also uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are small text files that are automatically generated by your browser and stored on your computer to enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Your IP address or your user data – if you are logged in to Google at the same time – will be shortened beforehand by Google within the EU member states or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf – and on the basis of a written contract stipulating a commission processing agreement – Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide us with further services related to the use of the website and the Internet.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and rendering other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

Google Analytics is only used with your prior consent. You can revoke your consent at any time or delete cookies stored in your browser or set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually about their acceptance or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases, or in general. You can prevent the collection and further processing of your data by Google by downloading and installing the plug-in at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be limited. The revocation of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation. More information on the terms of use and data protection can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/. It should be noted that, on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure the anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

Google also processes your data, in particular, in the USA. We would like to point out that, according to current European law, there is no adequate level of protection for personal data in the USA. There is currently no adequacy decision for a data transfer to the USA. Data transfer to the USA is, therefore, associated with unknown risks, which is why we obtain your consent before transferring data. Your data will not be shared with Google without your consent

Google reCaptcha

We use the service “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) provided by Google on our website. With reCAPTCHA, we check and ascertain whether the data entry on our website (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a human or by an automated program (so-called “bot”). For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website.

The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google. reCAPTCHA is only used with your prior consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. This has no effect on past processing operations.
