We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files that are saved locally on your computer by your web browser (e.g., Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer) when you visit our website. They are only saved there for a session ("session cookie") or longer ("persistent cookie").

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a "cookie ID," which is a unique identifier that consists of a string of characters that websites and servers use to associate the cookie with the specific browser on which the cookie is stored. This allows the visited websites and servers to distinguish the data subject's individual browser from other web browsers that contain other cookies. The specific web browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, we can provide the users of our website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies.

The information and offers on our website can be optimized to the user using a cookie. As we have already mentioned, cookies allow us to recognize our users when they revisit the website. The purpose of this recognition feature is to make it easier for users to use our website.

Some of our website's features cannot be offered without the use of technically required cookies. On the other hand, other cookies allow us to perform various analyses. Among other things, we use cookies to make our website more user-friendly and effective for you, for example, by tracking your use of our website and identifying your preferences.

If third parties process information using cookies, they will collect the information directly via your browser. Cookies do not damage your end device. They cannot execute programs and do not contain viruses. Our website uses different cookies whose nature and function are explained in more detail below.

Type of cookies used:

Type 1: Session cookies

Our website uses session cookies, which are automatically deleted as soon as you close your browser. These types of cookies are technically necessary to enable you to use our website.

Type 2: Persistent cookies

Our website also uses persistent cookies. Persistent cookies are cookies that, even if you close your browser, continue to be stored in your browser or on your hard drive for a longer period of time. They are activated each time you revisit the web page that has set the cookie or are recognized in some other way, for example, by an advertising network. The information stored in the persistent cookie is then transmitted to the website or advertising network. The storage period varies depending on the cookie. You can delete persistent cookies through your browser settings.

Origin of cookies:

First-party cookies

First-party cookies are created by the operator of the website that the user is visiting and cannot be read across websites.

Third-party cookies

Third-party cookies are not created by the operator of the website that the user is currently visiting, but rather by a third party who sets his own cookie through the operator's website. We will let you know in this data privacy policy if a third party sets cookies through our website.

Functions of the used cookies:

Function 1: Required cookies

These cookies are required for technical reasons so that you can visit our website and use the features we offer. This applies, for example, to cookies that ensure that your user-defined configuration of functionalities you have set up on our website is maintained across sessions. In addition, these cookies contribute to safe and proper use of the website.

Function 2: Performance-related cookies

You can analyze the website use and improve the performance and functionality of a website with the help of these cookies. For example, cookies collect information about how a website is used by its visitors, which pages of the website are accessed the most frequently, or whether error messages are displayed on certain pages. Please note: if you elect to use your existing right of objection to the use of these cookies, an opt-out cookie will be set in your browser that blocks the operator of the website or a third party from collecting any more data via cookies. If you delete this opt-out cookie, the operator or third party will once again be able to collect your data. Please learn about the lifetime of an opt-out cookie.

Function 3: Cookies for marketing

Advertising cookies (third party providers) allow various offers to be displayed that are tailored to your interests. These cookies can be used to track the user's web activity over a longer period of time. The cookies may even recognize you on several of the end devices you use.

These cookies will only be activated if you have given your consent. You can give your consent by actively clicking on "Accept" in the displayed notice (if necessary after selecting individual cookies or groups of cookies for which you give your consent). You can revoke your consent at any time by, for example, revisiting this consent banner and changing your settings. Your revocation does not affect the legality of the processing that was performed based on the previously granted consent until you revoked it.

Please note: if you elect to use your existing right of objection to the use of these cookies, an opt-out cookie will be set in your browser that blocks the operator of the website or a third party from collecting any more data via advertising cookies. If you delete this opt-out cookie, the operator or third party will once again be able to collect your data. Please learn about the lifetime of an opt-out cookie.

Because of the above-described intended uses, the legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is set forth in clause 1 of Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. The legal basis for technically required cookies (in other words, those that are necessary for the smooth functioning of our website) is Article 6 (1) (c) of the GDPR. If you have given us your consent to use cookies based on the notice displayed on the website ("cookie banner"), the legality of the use shall also be based on clause 1 of Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR.

7.1 Registration for our e-mail newsletter

If you subscribe to our e-mail newsletter, we will send you regular information about our services. Mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address alone. The indication of further possible data is voluntary and will be used to address you personally. When sending newsletters, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that we will only send you an e-mail newsletter if you have explicitly agreed to receive newsletters by us. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm (by clicking on a link) that you wish to receive our newsletter in the future. By activating the confirmation link, you give us your consent to use your personal data in accordance with Article 6 (1) a) GDPR. When you register for our newsletter, we will save your IP address entered by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of your registration. This allows us to trace any misuse of your e-mail address at a later date. The data collected by us when you register for the newsletter will be exclusively used for advertising purposes by way of the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter any time by using the link provided in the newsletter or by sending a corresponding message to the above-mentioned contact person. Following the cancellation of your registration, your e-mail address will be immediately deleted from our newsletter mailing list, unless you have explicitly consented to the further use of your data or unless we reserve the right to use your data for purposes beyond sending you the newsletter which are legally permissible and of which we will inform you in this statement.

7.2 Sending our newsletter to existing customers

If you have provided us with your email address when purchasing goods or services, we reserve the right to regularly send you offers by e-mail for goods or services similar to those you have already purchased. In accordance with Article 7 (3) of the German Law Against Unfair Competition (UWG), we are not required to obtain a separate consent from you to do so. In this case, data processing occurs solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalized direct advertising according to Article 6 (1) f) GDPR. In case you initially objected to the use of your e-mail address for this purpose, we will not send you any e-mails. You are entitled to object to the use of your email address for the aforementioned advertising purposes any time with future effect by notifying the contact person mentioned further above. In this case, no costs incur for you other than your basic data transmission costs. Upon receipt of your objection, we will immediately cease the use of your e-mail address for advertising purposes. If you wish to object to the analysis of your data for statistical evaluation purposes, you will have to unsubscribe from our newsletter.
