Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when the website is visited. This is above all technical data (for example Internet browser, operating system or the time at which a page has been accessed). The collection of this data automatically takes place as soon as you enter our website.

 

What do we use your data for?

Part of the data is collected in order to ensure an error-free provision of the website. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour.

Analytical tools and tools of third parties

When you visit our website, your surfing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This occurs in particular with cookies and with so-called analysis programs.

You can object to this analysis or prevent it with the non-use of certain tools. Detailed information can be found in the following Data Protection Declaration.

4. Data Collection on our Website

Cookies

The internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are deposited on your computer and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.

You can alter the settings of your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow them only in individual cases, accept cookies in specific cases or generally exclude them as well as enabling the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. 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 wish to use (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of their services. Insofar as other cookies (such as cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, they will be treated separately in this Data Protection Declaration.

 

Server Log Files

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Utilized operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of server request

A combination of this data with other data sources is not carried out.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

 

5. Social Media

Facebook-Plugins (Like & Share-Button)

We use social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA, on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation, and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. of the GDPR). The plugins can display interaction elements or contents (e.g. videos, graphics, or text contributions), and are recognised by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile, the word “Like”, or a “Thumbs up” sign), or with the additional text “Facebook Social Plugin”. When a user opens a function of this online offer that contains such a plugin, their device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly by Facebook to the user’s device and from here integrated into the online offer. User profiles for the user can be generated from the processed data in this way. We thus have no influence on the scope of data that Facebook gathers using this plugin and are therefore informing the user about our state of knowledge. An overview can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not wish that Facebook collects their data via this online offer and links this to their member data stored by Facebook, then they must log out from Facebook before using our online offer and delete the cookies. Additional settings and objections on the use of data for marketing purposes are possible in the Facebook profile. More info: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.

Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google’s services for you and others. To use the Google + button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile, which must contain at least the chosen profile name. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name you’ve used when sharing content with your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your e-mail address or other identifying information from you.

In addition to the above uses, the information you provide in accordance with the applicable Google privacy policies are used. Google may release aggregate statistics on the +1 activities the user or transmits them to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or linked sites.
