4. Data Collection on our Website


Some of our internet pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer, nor do they contain any viruses. Cookies help make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored in your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are session cookies, which are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser when you next visit our page.

When users access our website, a banner informs them that we use cookies for analytical purposes and refers to this Data Policy.

Cookies that are required to conduct electronic communication procedures or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping basket functions) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in storing cookies in order to provide their services in an optimised and technically faultless manner. If other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, they will be treated separately in this Data Policy.

When you switch the contrast option in the navigation bar of this website on and/or off, a cookie with the corresponding setting and a storage period of 1 (one) year will be placed so that your browser displays this website accordingly over the course of several sittings. Deleting your browser cookies will reset this information.

Duration of storage, objection and removal options

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer, which transmits the cookies to our page. As the user, you therefore have complete control over the use of cookies.

You can change your browser settings so that you are informed when cookies are placed and can allow cookies to only be placed in individual cases; to accept cookies in certain cases; to exclude cookies in general; and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.

5. Analytics Tools and Advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses functions provided by Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of this website. The information on said use that has been generated by the cookie will usually be transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is then stored.

The storage of Google Analytics cookies and the use of this analytics tool is based on Art. 6 (1) lit f GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour to optimise their web offer as well as their advertising.

IP anonymisation

On this website, we have activated the IP anonymisation function. This ensures that Google shortens IP addresses within Member States of the European Union or other States that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to their transmission to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this website; to compile reports on website activities; and to render other services related to the use of the website and the internet to the operator of the website. Google will not combine the IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics with any other data.

Browser plug-in

You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing the settings in your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website in full. In addition, you can prevent the storage of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Objection to the collection of data

You can prevent your data being collected by Google Analytics by clicking the following link. This will place an opt-out cookie that prevents your data from being collected when you visit this website in future: Deactivate Google Analytics.

To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. The provider of this page has no influence over this data transmission.

Google Maps has been used in the interest of providing an appealing presentation of our online offers and to make it easier to find the locations mentioned on our website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
