3. Data collection on our website

Cookies

In part, the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our website presence more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called ‘session cookies’. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases (or in general) and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of art. 6 para. 1f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the error-free and optimised provision of his services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • The browser type and browser version
  • The operating system that is used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.
These data are recorded on the basis of art. 6 para. 1f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the error-free presentation and optimisation of his website – for this purpose the server log files must be recorded.

3. Cookies

In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your end device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted again after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your end device and enable us or our partner companies (third-party cookies) to recognise your browser the next time you visit us (so-called persistent cookies). If cookies are set, they collect and process certain user information to an individual extent, e.g. browser and location data and IP address values. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie.
In some cases, cookies are used to simplify the ordering process by saving settings (e.g. remembering the contents of a virtual shopping cart for a later visit to the website). Insofar as personal data is also processed by individual cookies used by us, the processing is carried out in accordance with art. 6 para. 1b GDPR either for the execution of the contract or, in accordance with art. 6 para. 1f GDPR in order to safeguard our legitimate interests in providing the best possible functionality of the website, a customer-friendly visit and the effective design of the site.
Under certain circumstances, we work together with advertising partners who help us to make our website presence more interesting for you. For this purpose, cookies from partner companies will also be stored on your hard disk when you visit our website (cookies from third parties). If we work with the aforementioned advertising partners, you will be informed individually and separately about the use of such cookies and the scope of the information collected in each case within the following paragraphs.
Please note that you can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and can decide individually whether to accept them, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases, or to exclude them in general. Each browser differs in the way it manages the cookie settings. This is described in the help menu of each browser, which explains how you can change your cookie settings.
