A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his visit to an online offer. Temporary cookies, or “session cookies” or “transient cookies”, are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes his browser. In such a cookie, for example, the contents of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login jam can be stored. Cookies are described as “permanent” or “persistent” if they remain stored even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved if the user visits it after several days. Likewise, the interests of the users can be stored in such a cookie, which are used for range measurement or marketing purposes. Third-party cookies” are cookies that are offered by providers other than the person responsible for operating the online service (otherwise, if they are only the cookies of this person, they are called “first-party cookies”).

DSGVO), we use content or service offers from third parties in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as “content”).

This always presupposes that the third-party providers of such content are aware of the IP address of the users, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browsers. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We make every effort to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the content. Third party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as “web beacons”) for statistical or marketing purposes. Pixel tags” can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user’s device and may contain technical information on the browser and operating system, referring web pages, visiting time and other details on the use of our online offer, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.

Google ReCaptcha:

We integrate the function for detecting bots, e.g. when entering data in online forms (“ReCaptcha”) of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, Opt-Out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

The data may be processed in the USA. Privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, Opt-Out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

Google Analytics:

We use Google Analytics from Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94.043 USA. This is a tool that can be used to analyse the use of websites. Google uses various techniques to do this, including storing cookies on your computer. These store information about the use of our site, which we use to improve our offer.

The data collected by Google may be transferred by Google to countries outside the EU, especially the USA. Google has, however, subjected itself to the Privacy Shield Framework. You can find more information on your rights from this at http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/document/citizens-guide_en.pdf.

However, in accordance with the requirements of the German data protection authorities, we have taken steps to ensure that your data is adequately protected as far as possible. For example, we have ensured that your IP address is anonymised before it is transmitted to Google. This was done by activating the function Anonymizelp() within the Google Analytics Tracking Code. We have also concluded a contract with Google for commissioned data processing, according to which Google will not combine your data with other data collected by Google in order to determine your identity.

If this is not sufficient for you, you can also click on the link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Google Analytics also helps us to evaluate data from AdWords and the double-click cookie for statistical purposes.

Google Tag Manager:

With Google Tag Manager, marketers can manage website tags through one interface. However, the Tag Manager itself, which uses the tags, works without cookies and does not collect any personal information. The Tag Manager simply triggers other tags that may collect data. These third parties are explained in this privacy statement. Google Tag Manager does not use this information. If you have set or otherwise turned off cookies, this will be respected for all tracking tags used with Google Tag Manager, so the tool will not change your cookie settings.

Google may ask your permission to share some product information (such as your account information) with other Google products to enable certain features, such as making it easier to add new conversion tracking tags for AdWords. Google’s developers also review product usage information from time to time to further enhance the product. However, Google will never share such information with other Google products without your consent.

Use of Facebook Social Plugins:

We use social plugins on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) Social Plugins (“Plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The Plugins can display interaction elements or content (e.g. videos, graphics or text contributions) and can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile, the terms “Like”, “Like” or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnywAAC&status=Active).

If a user calls up a function of this online offer that contains such a plugin, his device establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the user’s device and integrated into the online offer by the user. User profiles can be created from the processed data. We therefore have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform the users according to our state of knowledge.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his or her Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example, by pressing the Like button or posting a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your device to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to find out his or her IP address and store it. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and settings to protect the privacy of users, can be found in the Facebook data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him/her via this online offer and link it with his/her membership data stored on Facebook, he/she must log out of Facebook before using our online offer and delete his/her cookies.
