Some cookies are "session cookies. Such cookies are automatically deleted after your browser session ends. On the other hand, other cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us to recognise you when you return to our website.
With a modern web browser you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured so that cookies are automatically deleted when you close the program. Disabling cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.
The setting of cookies, which are necessary for electronic communication processes or the provision of certain functions you require (e.g. shopping basket), is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f DSGVO. As operators of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and smooth provision of our services. If other cookies are set (e.g. for analysis functions), these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.
Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of the web analysis service is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses "cookies". These are small text files that your web browser stores on your end device and enable an analysis of website use. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Server location is usually the USA.
The setting of Google Analytics cookies is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise our website and, where applicable, advertising.
We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymisation function. It ensures that Google truncates your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before sending it to the USA. There may be exceptional cases in which Google transfers the full IP address to a server in the USA and shortens it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports on website activities and to provide us with further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet. There is no consolidation of the IP address transmitted by Google Analytics with other Google data.
The setting of cookies by your web browser can be prevented. However, some functions of our website could be restricted as a result. You can also prevent the collection of data concerning your website usage, including your IP address, and subsequent processing by Google. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plugin accessible via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Opposition to data collection:
In order to fully comply with the legal data protection requirements, we have concluded a contract with Google for order processing.
Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics
Our website uses the "demographic features" function of Google Analytics. It can be used to generate reports that contain information on the age, gender and interests of visitors to the site. This data comes from interest-based advertising by Google and from visitor data from third parties. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time. You can do this via the ad settings in your Google Account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the section "Objection to data collection".
Google AdWords und Google Conversion-Verfolgung
Our website uses Google AdWords. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.
AdWords is an online advertising programme. As part of the online advertising programme we work with conversion tracking. After a click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your end device. Google AdWords cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. The cookie enables Google and us to recognise that you have clicked on an ad and been redirected to our website.
Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies are not trackable through websites of AdWords customers. Conversion cookies are used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. Adwords customers find out how many users clicked on their ad and were redirected to pages with conversion tracking tags. However, AdWords customers do not receive any information that allows for personal identification of the users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to any use. In this case the conversion cookie must be deactivated in the user settings of the browser. In this way, no inclusion in the conversion tracking statistics takes place.
The storage of "conversion cookies" takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. As website operators, we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise our website and our advertising.
Details on Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking can be found in the Google data protection regulations: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.
