4.Data collection on our website

 

Cookies

The websites sometimes use what are known as cookies. Cookies cause no damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. The purpose of cookies is to make our service more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files which are placed on your computer and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are what are known as ‘session cookies’. They are automatically erased after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you erase them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit.

You can adjust your browser to ensure that you are informed of the use of cookies and only permit cookies on a case-by-case basis, prohibit the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate automatic erasure of cookies when you close your browser. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies which are required to perform the electronic communications process or to provide functions you require (e.g. basket function) are stored based on Article 6 section 1 f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically flawless and optimised provision of its services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are dealt with separately in this data protection policy.

 

Server log files

The provider of the websites automatically collects and stores information in what are known as server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the computer accessing the website
  • Time of server query
  • IP address

This data is not combined with data from other sources.

The basis for data processing is Article 6 section 1 f of the GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the performance of an agreement or pre-contractual activities.

 

Contact form

If you send us queries via contact form, your details from the contact form, including the contact details you provide there, are stored by us for the purpose of processing your query and for any follow-up queries. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form therefore takes place exclusively based on your consent (Article 6 section 1 a of the GDPR). You may withdraw this consent at any time. To do this, you may simply provide us with an informal notification by email. The legality of the data processing procedures up until the point of withdrawal shall remain unaffected by the withdrawal.

We shall retain the data you enter in the contact form until you ask us to erase it, withdraw your consent to its storage or the purpose of data storage no longer exists (e.g. when the processing of your query is complete). Obligatory statutory provisions – particularly retention periods – shall remain unaffected.

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the Google Analytics web analytics service. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses what are known as ‘cookies’. These are text files stored on your computer that enable your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie on your use of the website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there.

Google Analytics cookies are usually stored based on Article 6 section 1 f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour, in order to optimise their web service and their advertising.

 

IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that Google will abbreviate the IP address within the member states of the European Union or other signatories of the treaty creating the European Economic Area prior to its transmission to the United States. Your full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there in exceptional cases. Google uses this information on behalf of the website operator to evaluate your use of the website, compile website activity reports and provide further services associated with the use of both the website in particular and the Internet in general to the website operator. The IP address transmitted from your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.

You can prevent cookies from being stored on your device using the relevant setting in your browser software; we would like to explicitly state, however, that you may not be able to completely use all of this website’s functions if you deactivate cookies.

This website uses the ‘demographic features’ function of Google Analytics. Reports containing statements on the age, gender and interests of site visitors can therefore be compiled. This data comes from Google’s interest-based advertising and from visitor data made available by third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific individual. You can disable this function at any time using the ad settings in your Google account or categorically prohibit Google Analytics’ collection of your data as described in the ‘Objection to data collection’ section.

 

WordPress Stats

This website uses the WordPress tool Stats to statistically evaluate visitor access. The provider is Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street #343, San Francisco, CA 94110–4929, USA.

WordPress Stats uses cookies which are stored on your computer and allow use of the website to be analysed. The information on the use of our website generated via the cookies is stored on servers in the United States. Your IP address is anonymised after processing and before storage.

WordPress Stats cookies remain on your end device until you erase them.

WordPress Stats cookies are usually stored based on Article 6 section 1 f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the anonymised analysis of user behaviour, in order to optimise their web service and their advertising.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use Google reCAPTCHA (hereinafter referred to as ‘reCAPTCHA’) on our websites. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (‘Google’).

reCAPTCHA should be used to check whether data is input into our websites (e.g. in a contact form) by a person or an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyses the website visitor’s behaviour based on various characteristics. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor accesses the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates different information (e.g. IP address, duration of website visitor’s visit to the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected in the analysis is forwarded to Google.

The reCAPTCHA analyses all run in the background. Website visitors are not informed that an analysis is taking place.

Data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 section 1 f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its web services from improper automated spying and spam.

For more information on Google reCAPTCHA and Google’s privacy policy, please see the following links: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/android.html.
