B. GATHERING AND STORING OF PERSONAL DATA WHEN VISITING OUR WEBSITE

We are informing you below about the procedures that take place when accessing our website that are relevant under data protection law.

B1. Logfiles

Every time you access our website, we automatically gather data and information from the computer system that you use to access the website.

In the process, the following data is gathered:

(1) Information on your browser type and the browser version used
(2) Information on your operating system
(3) Information on your Internet Service Provider
(4) The date and time of your access
(5) Websites from which your system accesses our website
(6) Websites that are accessed by your system via our website

The data is stored in the log files of our system. Not affected by this are your IP address or other data which enable the data to be assigned to you. This data is not stored together with other personal data of yours. The legal basis for the temporary storage of this data is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

Both the gathering of data and the saving of data in log files are absolutely necessary for the provision and operation of our website. Therefore, you do not have the option to object.

 

B2. Cookies

We deploy so-called “cookies” on our website. These are small files that your browser creates automatically and which are stored on your computer system if you visit our site. Cookies do not harm your computer system, and do not contain any viruses, Trojan horses or other malware.

We deploy cookies in order to improve our website, thus, for example, to design it to be more user-friendly and adapt it to users’ interests.

In that respect, the following data is stored in the cookies and transmitted:

(1) Language settings
(2) Items in your shopping cart
(3) Login details
(4) Frequency of product views
(5) History of the ordering process
(6) Making use of website functions

The data gathered in this way is pseudonymised by means of technical precautions. It is therefore not possible to allocate the data to you. The data is not stored together with any other personal data.

The data processed by cookies is necessary for the purposes mentioned, in order to protect our legitimate interests, as well as those of third parties, pursuant to Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. In order to prevent this, you may, however, configure your browser in such a way that no cookies are stored on your computer system, or that a notice always appears before a new cookie is placed. Completely deactivating cookies may, however, lead to you not being able to use all the functions of our website.

 

B3. Website analysis
We use services of third parties to evaluate the visit to our site by the user.

(1) Google Analytics

We use the “Google Analytics” service on this website. This is a web analysis service of Google, Inc., (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre, Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).
This service enables us to create pseudonymised usage profiles and use cookies (see Clause B. 2). The information generated by the cookie on your use of this website, such as

(1) Browser type/version
(2) Operating system
(3) Referring URL (the page visited previously)
(4) Time and country of the server request

is transmitted to a server of Google Inc. in the USA and stored there. The information will be used to evaluate the use of the website, compile reports on the website activities, and provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for market research purposes and to design these web pages in line with requirements. This information may also be transmitted to third parties, in so far as such is required by law or if third parties process such data by order. Your IP address will never be merged with other data of Google. The IP addresses are anonymised, so that the allocation of data will not be accessible to anyone.

You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting a corresponding setting in the browser software. We would like to point out that, in such a case, it may not be possible to use all the functions of this website in their entirety.

You can, moreover, prevent generation of the data by the cookie which relates to your use of the website from being recorded, as well as the processing of such data by Google Inc., by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

As an alternative to the browser add-on, in particular with browsers on mobile terminals, you can additionally prevent your data from being recorded by Google Analytics by clicking on this link: An opt-out cookie is placed, which prevents your data from being recorded when visiting this website in future. The opt-out cookie only applies in this browser, and only to our website, and will be placed on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you need to re-set the opt-out cookie.

Google Analytics Opt-out

You can find further information on data privacy in connection with Google Analytics, for instance in the Google Analytics Help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en).

The cookies are stored for a period of 26 months.

For the optimisation and evaluation of our website, it is necessary to deploy Google Analytics pursuant to Art. 6(1)(F) GDPR. You can, via the following link, prevent the data from being gathered (opt-out): http://www.google.com/ads/preferences.

 

(2) Jetpack

In addition, the “Jetpack” service is used, which is offered by Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street #343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA.

This service enables us to create statistics about the visit to our website. This is done by deploying cookies (see Clause B. 2.), which are stored on your computer system.

The information from the cookies, and thus the visitor statistics, is stored in the USA. The data privacy policy on the cookies captured can be inspected here: https://jetpack.com/support/cookies/

The use of Jetpack is necessary, pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, in order to optimise and evaluate our website. Inter alia via the following link, you can prevent data from being gathered (opt-out): EDAA http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/.

 

B4. Website marketing

(1) Google AdWords

We use the “Google AdWords” marketing service on this website. This service is provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).

This service enables us to place advertisements concerning our content with greater precision and evaluate them according to users’ interests. This is done by deploying cookies (see Clause B. 2.), which are stored on your computer system if you came to our website via a Google advertisement (a so-called “conversion cookie”). That makes it possible to track from which page you were re-routed. The service is, however, not aimed at identifying you personally.

If you would prefer not to take part in the tracking procedure, you can also reject the placing of a cookie that would be required for this – for instance by setting your browser accordingly, so that the automatic placing of cookies is deactivated. You can, however, also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking, by setting your browser in such a way that cookies from the domain www.googleadservices.com are blocked. You will find Google’s data privacy briefing on the conversion tracking here: (https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html).

Such advertising efforts are necessary in order to assess our website and optimise the advertising efforts in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. You can, via the following link, prevent the data from being gathered (opt-out): http://www.google.com/ads/preferences.

(2) Facebook-Pixel

In addition, we use an advertising measure of the Facebook network, the so-called “Facebook Pixel”. This is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. This concerns a script (“pixel”), that we use on our website. If you are simultaneously logged into the website of Facebook Ireland Ltd. when visiting our website, Facebook Ireland Ltd. may recognise that you have visited our website. That means that advertisements that are more targeted, and therefore more in line with your interests, can be shown on the network of Facebook Ireland Ltd. It can also be ascertained from that whether any users (and which ones) have been routed to our website by clicking on an advertisement in the network of Facebook Ireland Ltd.

You can infer the purpose and scope of the gathering of data and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook Ireland Ltd., as well as your rights and setting options for protecting your privacy in this respect from Facebook Ireland Ltd.’s data privacy policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). You can adjust the settings for the Facebook advertisements yourself (https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads).

This advertising measure of Facebook is necessary to promote our website and optimise the advertising efforts pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Inter alia using the following links to pages of third party providers, you can prevent data from being gathered (opt-out): NAI – http://optout.networkadvertising.org/ or EDAA http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/
