Privacy Policy

Data protection

We have written this data protection declaration (version 02.12.2020-311237045) to provide you with the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 to explain what information we collect, how we do it Use data and what choices you have as a visitor to this website.

Unfortunately, it is in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical, but we have tried to describe the most important things as simply and clearly as possible.

Automatic data storage

When you visit websites these days, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website.

If you visit our website as you are now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically saves data such as

  • the address (URL) of the accessed website
  • Browser and browser version
  • the operating system used
  • the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)
  • the host name and the IP address of the device from which access is being made
  • Date and time

in files (web server log files).

As a rule, web server log files are stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass this data on, but we cannot rule out that this data will be viewed in the event of illegal behavior.

Cookies

Our website uses HTTP cookies to save user-specific data.
In the following we explain what cookies are and why they are used so that you can better understand the following data protection declaration.

What exactly are cookies?

Whenever you surf the Internet, you are using a browser. Well-known browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Most websites save small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.

One thing cannot be dismissed out of hand: Cookies are really useful little helpers. Almost all websites use cookies. More precisely, they are HTTP cookies, as there are also other cookies for other areas of application. HTTP cookies are small files that our website stores on your computer. These cookie files are automatically stored in the cookie folder, so to speak the & # 8220; brain & # 8221; Your browser. A cookie consists of a name and a value. When defining a cookie, one or more attributes must also be specified.

Cookies store certain user data from you, such as language or personal page settings. When you call up our site again, your browser transmits the “user-related” information back to our site. Thanks to cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you your usual standard settings. In some browsers each cookie has its own file, in others such as Firefox all cookies are stored in a single file.

There are both first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly from our side, third-party cookies are created by partner websites (e.g. Google Analytics). Each cookie must be evaluated individually, as each cookie stores different data. The expiry time of a cookie also varies from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other “pests”. Cookies cannot access information on your PC either.

This is how cookie data can look like:

  • Name: _ga
  • Expiry time: 2 years
  • Usage: Differentiation of website visitors
  • Example value: GA1.2.1326744211.152311237045

A browser should support the following minimum sizes:

  • A cookie should be able to contain at least 4096 bytes
  • At least 50 cookies should be able to be stored per domain
  • A total of at least 3000 cookies should be able to be stored

What types of cookies are there?

The question of which cookies we use in particular depends on the services used and is clarified in the following sections of the data protection declaration. At this point we would like to briefly discuss the different types of HTTP cookies.

There are 4 types of cookies:

Absolutely necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary to ensure basic functions of the website. For example, these cookies are needed when a user puts a product in the shopping cart, then continues surfing on other pages and only goes to checkout later. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes his browser window.

Functional cookies
These cookies collect information about user behavior and whether the user receives any error messages. These cookies are also used to measure the loading time and the behavior of the website in different browsers.

Targeted cookies
These cookies ensure better user-friendliness. For example, entered locations, font sizes or form data are saved.

Advertising cookies
These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They serve to deliver customized advertising to the user. That can be very practical, but also very annoying.

Usually when you visit a website for the first time you will be asked which of these types of cookies you would like to allow. And of course this decision is also saved in a cookie.

How can I delete cookies?

You decide how and whether you want to use cookies. Regardless of which service or website the cookies originate from, you always have the option to delete cookies, only partially allow them or deactivate them. For example, you can block third-party cookies, but allow all other cookies.

If you want to find out which cookies have been stored in your browser, if you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:

Chrome: delete cookies in Chrome, activate and manage

Safari : Managing cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: deleting and managing cookies

If you generally do not want cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. For each individual cookie, you can decide whether or not to allow the cookie. The procedure is different depending on the browser. It is best to search for the instructions in Google with the search term “Delete cookies Chrome” or “Deactivate cookies Chrome”. in the case of a Chrome browser or swap the word & # 8220; Chrome & # 8221; against the name of your browser, e.g. Edge, Firefox, Safari from.

How about my data protection?

The so-called “cookie guidelines” have existed since 2009. It states that the saving of cookies requires your consent. Within the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these guidelines. In Germany, the cookie guidelines have not been implemented as national law. Instead, this guideline was largely implemented in Section 15 (3) of the Telemedia Act (TMG).

If you want to know more about cookies and are not afraid of technical documentation, we recommend https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6265 , the request for comments from the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) named & # 8220; HTTP StaTe Management Mechanism & # 8221 ;.

TLS encryption with https

We use https to transfer data securely on the Internet (data protection through technology design Article 25 (1) GDPR ). By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognize the use of this data transmission protection by the small lock symbol in the top left of the browser and the use of the https (instead of http) scheme as part of our Internet address

Google Maps Privacy Policy

We use Google Maps from Google Inc. on our website. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services in Europe. With Google Maps we can show you locations better and thus adapt our service to your needs. By using Google Maps, data is transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers. Here we want to go into more detail about what Google Maps is, why we have this Google service, which data is stored and how you can prevent this.

What is Google Maps?

Google Maps is an internet map service from Google. With Google Maps you can search for exact locations of cities, attractions, accommodations or companies online using a PC, tablet or app. If companies are represented on Google My Business, additional information about the company is displayed in addition to the location. In order to show how to get there, map sections of a location can be integrated into a website using HTML code. Google Maps shows the earth’s surface as a road map or as an aerial or satellite image. Thanks to the Street View images and the high-quality satellite images, very precise representations are possible.

Why do we use Google Maps on our website?

All of our efforts on this page are aimed at providing you with a useful and meaningful time on our website. By integrating Google Maps, we can provide you with the most important information on various locations. You can see at a glance where we are based. The route description always shows you the best or fastest way to us. You can find the route for routes by car, public transport, on foot or by bike. For us, the provision of Google Maps is part of our customer service.

What data is saved by Google Maps?

In order for Google Maps to be able to offer its full service, the company must record and save data from you. This includes the search terms entered, your IP address and the latitude and longitude coordinates. If you use the route planner function, the entered start address is also saved. However, this data storage happens on the Google Maps website. We can only inform you about this, but we cannot influence it. Since we have integrated Google Maps into our website, Google places at least one cookie (name: NID) in your browser. This cookie stores data about your user behavior. Google uses this data primarily to optimize its own services and to provide you with individual, personalized advertising.

The following cookie is set in your browser due to the integration of Google Maps:

Name: NID
Value: 188 = h26c1Ktha7fCQTx8rXgLyATyITJ311237045-5
Purpose: NID is used by Google to adapt advertisements to your Google search. With the help of the cookie, Google “remembers” your most frequently entered search queries or your previous interaction with advertisements. This way you always get customized advertisements. The cookie contains a unique ID that Google uses to collect your personal settings for advertising purposes.
Expiry date: after 6 months

Note: We cannot guarantee that the information stored is complete. Changes can never be ruled out, especially when using cookies. In order to identify the NID cookie, a separate test page was created, where only Google Maps was integrated.

How long and where is the data stored?

The Google servers are located in data centers all over the world. Most of the servers are in America, however. For this reason, your data is also increasingly stored in the USA. Here you can read exactly where the Google data centers are located: https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de

Google distributes the data on various data carriers. This means that the data can be accessed more quickly and is better protected against any attempts at manipulation. Each data center also has special emergency programs. If, for example, there are problems with the Google hardware or a natural disaster paralyzes the servers, the data is almost certainly still protected.

Google stores some data for a specified period of time. For other data, Google only offers the option of manually deleting them. The company also anonymizes information (such as advertising data) in server logs by deleting part of the IP address and cookie information after 9 and 18 months, respectively.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

With dhe automatic deletion function of location and activity data introduced in 2019, information about location and web / app activity & # 8211; depending on your decision & # 8211; either stored for 3 or 18 months and then deleted. You can also delete this data manually from the history at any time using your Google account. If you want to completely prevent your location from being recorded, you must pause the “Web and app activity” section in your Google account. Click Data & Personalization, then click the Activity Settings option. Here you can switch the activities on or off.

You can also deactivate, delete or manage individual cookies in your browser. Depending on which browser you are using, this always works a little differently. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete cookies in Chrome , activate and manage

Safari: Managing cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

If you generally do not want cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. So you can decide for each individual cookie whether you allow it or not.

Google is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on this at https: / /www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI . If you want to learn more about data processing by Google, we recommend the company’s own data protection declaration at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de .

Google Fonts privacy policy

We use Google Fonts on our website. These are the & # 8220; Google Fonts & # 8221; by Google Inc. For the European area, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services.

You do not have to log in or store a password to use Google fonts. Furthermore, no cookies are stored in your browser. The files (CSS, fonts / fonts) are requested via the Google domains fonts.googleapis.com and fonts.gstatic.com. According to Google, the requests for CSS and fonts are completely separate from all other Google services. If you have a Google account, you don’t have to worry that your Google account details will be transmitted to Google while you are using Google Fonts. Google records the use of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and the fonts used and stores this data securely. We will take a closer look at what the data storage looks like in more detail.

What are Google Fonts?

Google Fonts (formerly Google Web Fonts) is a directory with over 800 fonts that Google makes it available to its users free of charge.

Many of these fonts are released under the SIL Open Font License, while others are released under the Apache license. Both are free software licenses.

Why do we use Google Fonts on our website?

With Google Fonts we can use fonts on our own website, but do not have to upload them to our own server. Google Fonts is an important building block for the quality of our websitekeep e high. All Google fonts are automatically optimized for the web and this saves data volume and is a great advantage, especially for use with mobile devices. When you visit our site, the small file size ensures a fast loading time. Furthermore, Google Fonts are secure web fonts. Different image synthesis systems (rendering) in different browsers, operating systems and mobile devices can lead to errors. Such errors can partially distort texts or entire websites. Thanks to the fast content delivery network (CDN), there are no cross-platform problems with Google Fonts. Google Fonts supports all common browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera) and works reliably on most modern mobile operating systems, including Android 2.2+ and iOS 4.2+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod). So we use Google Fonts so that we can present our entire online service as beautifully and uniformly as possible.

What data is stored by Google?

When you visit our website, the fonts are downloaded from a Google server. This external call transfers data to the Google server. In this way, Google also recognizes that you or your IP address are visiting our website. The Google Fonts API was developed to reduce the use, storage and collection of end-user data to what is necessary for the proper provision of fonts. By the way, API stands for “Application Programming Interface” and serves, among other things, as a data transmitter in the software area

Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests with Google and is therefore protected. With the usage figures collected, Google can determine how well the individual fonts are being received. Google publishes the results on internal analysis sites such as Google Analytics. Google also uses data from its own web crawler to determine which websites use Google fonts. This data is published in Google Fonts’ BigQuery database. Entrepreneurs and developers use the Google BigQuery web service to examine and move large amounts of data.

It should be noted, however, that information such as language settings, IP address, version of the browser, screen resolution of the browser and the name of the browser are automatically transmitted to the Google server with every Google Font request. It is not clear whether this data is saved or not clearly communicated by Google.

How long and where is the data stored?

Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on its servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. This enables us to use the fonts with the help of a Google stylesheet. A stylesheet is a format template that can be used to quickly and easily e.g. can change the design or font of a website.

The font files are saved by Google for one year. Google’s goal is to fundamentally improve the loading time of websites. If millions of web pages refer to the same fonts, they are cached after the first visit and immediately reappear on all other web pages visited later. Sometimes Google updates font files to reduce file size, increase speech coverage, and improve design.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

The data that Google stores for a day or a year cannot simply be deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is accessed. In order to be able to delete this data prematurely, you have to contact Google support at https: / /support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=311237045 . In this case you only prevent data storage if you do not visit our site.

Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unrestricted access to all fonts. We can therefore have unlimited access to a sea of ​​fonts and thus get the most out of our website. You can find more about Google Fonts and other questions at https://developers.google.com / fonts / faq? tid = 311237045 . Although Google deals with data protection issues there, it does not contain really detailed information about data storage. It is relatively difficult to get really precise information about stored data from Google.

Which data is basically collected by Google and for what purposeData used can also be found on https://www.google.com / intl / en / policies / privacy / read.

Google Fonts Local Privacy Policy

We use Google Fonts from Google Inc. on our website. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for the European area. We have the google fonts locally, i.e. on our web server & # 8211; not on the servers of Google & # 8211; involved. This means there is no connection to Google servers and therefore no data transmission or storage.

What are Google Fonts?

In the past, Google Fonts was also called Google Web Fonts. This is an interactive directory with over 800 fonts, the Google provides free of charge. With Google Fonts you could use fonts without uploading them to your own server. But in order to prevent any information transfer to Google servers in this regard, we have downloaded the fonts to our server. In this way we act in compliance with data protection regulations and do not send any data to Google Fonts.

Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unrestricted access to all fonts. We can therefore have unlimited access to a sea of ​​fonts and thus get the most out of our website. You can find more about Google Fonts and other questions at https://developers.google.com / fonts / faq? tid = 311237045 .

OpenStreetMap privacy policy

We have integrated map sections from the online map tool “OpenStreetMap” on our website. This is a so-called open source mapping, which we can call up via an API (interface). This function is offered by the OpenStreetMap Foundation, St John’s Innovation Center, Cowley Road, Cambridge, CB4 0WS, United Kingdom. By using this map function, your IP address will be forwarded to OpenStreetMap. In this data protection declaration you will find out why we use functions of the OpenStreetMap tool, where which data is stored and how you can prevent this data storage.

What is OpenStreetMap?

The OpenStreetMap project was launched in 2004. The aim of the project is and was to create a free world map. Users around the world collect data on buildings, forests, rivers and roads, for example. Over the years, an extensive digital map of the world was created by users. Of course the map is not complete, but in most regions it is equipped with a lot of data.

Why do we use OpenStreetMap on our website?

Our website is primarily intended to be helpful to you. From our point of view, this is always the case when information is found quickly and easily. Of course, on the one hand this is about our services and products, on the other hand you should also have other helpful information available. That is why we also use the OpenStreetMap map service. For example, we can show you exactly how to find our company. The map shows you the best route to us and your journey will be child’s play.

Which data is saved by OpenStreetMap?

When you visit one of our websites that OpenStreetMap offers, user data is transmitted to the service and stored there. OpenStreetMap collects information about your interactions with the digital map, your IP address, data on your browser, device type, operating system and on what day and at what time you used the service. Tracking software is also used to record user interactions. The company specifies the analysis tool “Piwik” in its own data protection declaration.

The collected data are then available to the relevant working groups of the OpenStreetMap Foundation. According to the company, personal data will not be passed on to other people or companies unless legally necessary. The third party provider Piwik stores your IP address, but in a shortened form.

The following cookie can be set in your browser when you interact with OpenStreetMap on our website:

Why do we use Mapbox API on our website?

We want to offer you a comprehensive service on our website as well and this should not simply end with our services or products. No, all of our content should also be of use to you. And that includes, for example, route maps that show you the way to our company.

Which data is saved by the Mapbox API?

If you call up one of our sub-pages that has integrated an online map from Mapbox, data about your user behavior can be collected and saved. This has to be the case so that the integrated online maps work properly. It is also possible that the data collected by Mapbox will be passed on to third parties, but no personal data. This happens either if this is necessary for legal reasons or if Mapbox explicitly instructs another company. The map contents are transmitted directly to your browser and integrated into our website.

Mapbox automatically collects certain technical information when requests are made to the APIs. In addition to your IP address, this includes browser information, your operating system, content of the request, restricted location and usage data, the URL of the website you visited and the date and time of the website visit. According to Mapbox, the data is only used to improve its own products. Mapbox also collects randomly generated IDs in order to analyze user behavior and determine the number of active users.

Google Analytics privacy policy

We use the analysis tracking tool Google Analytics (GA) from the American company Google Inc. on our website. For the European area, the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services responsible. Google Analytics collects data about your actions on our website. For example, if you click on a link, this action is saved in a cookie and sent to Google Analytics. With the help of the reports we receive from Google Analytics, we can better adapt our website and our service to your needs. In the following we will go into more detail about the tracking tool and inform you above all about which data is saved and how you can prevent this.

What is Google Analytics?

Google Analytics is a tracking tool that is used to analyze the traffic on our website. In order for Google Analytics to work, a tracking code is built into the code of our website. When you visit our website, this code records various actions that you carry out on our website. As soon as you leave our website, this data is sent to the Google Analytics server and stored there.

Google processes the data and we receive reports on your user behavior. These reports can include the following:

  • Target group reports: With target group reports, we get to know our users better and know more precisely who is interested in our service.
  • Ad reports: Ad reports make it easier for us to analyze and improve our online advertising.
  • Acquisition reports: Acquisition reports give us helpful information on how we can get more people interested in our service.
  • Behavioral reports: Here we learn how you interact with our website. We can understand which way you cover our site and which links you click.
  • Conversion reports: Conversion is a process in which you carry out a desired action based on a marketing message. For example, when you go from being a pure website visitor to being a buyer or newsletter subscriber. With the help of these reports, we can find out more about how our marketing measures are received by you. This is how we want to increase our conversion rate.
  • Real-time reports: Here we always find out immediately what is happening on our website. For example, we can see how many users are reading this text.

Why do we use Google Analytics on our website?

Our goal with this website is clear: We want to offer you the best possible service. The statistics and data from Google Analytics help us to achieve this goal.

The statistically evaluated data show us a clear picture of the strengths and weaknesses of our website. On the one hand, we can optimize our site so that interested people can find it more easily on Google. On the other hand, the data helps us to better understand you as a visitor. We therefore know very well what we need to improve on our website in order to offer you the best possible service. The data also help us to carry out our advertising and marketing measures more individually and cost-effectively. After all, it only makes sense to show our products and services to people who are interested.

What data is stored by Google Analytics?

Google Analytics uses a tracking code to create a random, unique ID that is linked to your browser cookie. This is how Google Analytics recognizes you as a new user. The next time you visit our site, you will be recognized as a “returning” user. All collected data is saved together with this user ID. This is the only way to evaluate pseudonymous user profiles.

Tags such as cookies and app instance IDs are used to track your interactionsf our website measured. Interactions are all types of actions that you carry out on our website. If you also use other Google systems (such as a Google account), data generated by Google Analytics can be linked to third-party cookies. Google does not pass on Google Analytics data unless we as the website operator approve it. Exceptions may be made if required by law.

The following cookies are used by Google Analytics:

Name: _ga

Here we show you an overview of the most important data that is collected with Google Analytics:

Heatmaps: Google creates so-called heatmaps. Heatmaps show exactly those areas that you click on. In this way we get information about where you are “on the way” on our site.

Duration of session: Google describes the duration of the session as the time that you spend on our site without leaving the site. If you have been inactive for 20 minutes, the session ends automatically.

Bounce rate : A bounce rate is when you only view one page on our website and then leave our website again.

Account creation: When you create an account or place an order on our website, Google Analytics collects this data.

IP address: The IP address is only shown in abbreviated form so that no clear assignment is possible.

Location: The country and your approximate location can be determined via the IP address. This process is also known as IP location determination.

Technical information: The technical information includes your browser type, your Internet provider or your screen resolution.

Source of origin: Google Analytics or us, of course, are also interested in which website or which advertising you came to our site.

Further data are contact details, any ratings, the playing of media (e.g. when you play a video on our site), the sharing of content via social media or adding to your favorites. The list does not claim to be complete and only serves as a general guide to data storage by Google Analytics.

How long and where is the data stored?

Google has your servers all over the world. Most of the servers are located in America and consequently your data is mostly stored on American servers. Here you can read exactly where the Google data centers are located: https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de

Your data will be distributed on different physical data carriers. This has the advantage that the data can be accessed more quickly and is better protected against manipulation. Every Google data center has appropriate emergency programs for your data. If, for example, the hardware at Google fails or natural disasters paralyze servers, the risk of a service interruption at Google remains low.

A standard storage period for your user data of 26 months is set for Google Analytics. Then your user data will be deleted. However, we have the option of choosing the retention period for user data ourselves. We have five variants available for this:

  • Deletion after 14 months
  • Deletion after 26 months
  • Deletion after 38 months
  • Deletion after 50 months
  • No automatic deletion

When the specified period has expired, the data is deleted once a month. This retention period applies to your data that is linked to cookies, user identification and advertising IDs (e.g. cookies from the DoubleClick domain). Report results are based on aggregated data and are stored independently of user data. Aggregated data is a merging of individual data into a larger unit.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

According to the data protection law of the European Union, you have the right to receive information about your data, to update it, to delete it or to restrict it. With the help of the browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, dc.js), you prevent Google Analytics from using your data. You can download the browser add-on under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de Download and install. Please note that this add-on only deactivates data collection by Google Analytics.

If you generally want to deactivate, delete or manage cookies (independent of Google Analytics), there are separate instructions for each browser:

Chrome: Delete cookies in Chrome , activate and manage

Safari: Managing cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

Google Analytics is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on this at https: / /www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&tid=311237045 . We hope we have been able to provide you with the most important information about data processing by Google Analytics.

Google Analytics IP anonymization

We have implemented the IP address anonymization of Google Analytics on this website. This function was developed by Google so that this website can comply with the applicable data protection regulations and recommendations of the local data protection authorities if they prohibit the storage of the full IP address. The anonymization or masking of the IP takes place as soon as the IP addresses arrive in the Google Analytics data collection network and before the data is stored or processed.

You can find more information on IP anonymization at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=de .

Google Analytics reports on demographics and interests

We have switched on the functions for advertising reports in Google Analytics. The demographics and interests reports include age, gender and interests. So we can & # 8211; without being able to assign this data to individual persons & # 8211; get a better picture of our users. You can find out more about the advertising functions on https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3450482?hl=de_AT&utm_id=ad .

You can use the activities and information of your Google account under “Settings for advertising” on https: // Close adssettings.google.com/authenticated with the checkbox.

Google Analytics deactivation link

If you click on the following deactivation link , you can prevent Google from recording further visits to this website. Warning: The deletion of cookies, the use of the incognito / private mode of your browser, or the use of another browser will result in data being collected again.

Google Analytics add-on for data processing

We have concluded a direct customer contract with Google for the use of Google Analytics by accepting the “data processing addendum” in Google Analytics.

You can find more about the addition on data processing for Google Analytics here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/3379636?hl=de&utm_id=ad

Google Analytics Google Signals Privacy Policy

We have activated the Google signals in Google Analytics. The existing Google Analytics functions (advertising reports, remarketing, cross-device reports and reports on interests and demographic characteristics) are updated in order to receive summarized and anonymized data from you, provided that you have allowed personalized ads in your Google account.

The special thing about it is that it is a cross-device tracking. That means your data can be analyzed across all devices. By activating Google signals, data is recorded and linked to the Google account. This enables Google to recognize, for example, when you are viewing a product on our website using a smartphone and only later buy the product using a laptop. Thanks to the activation of Google signals, we can start cross-device remarketing campaigns that would otherwise not be possible in this form. Remarketing means that we can also show you our offer on other websites.

In Google Analytics, further visitor data such as location, search history, YouTube history and data about your actions on our website are recorded by the Google signals. This gives us better advertising reports and more useful information about your interests and demographic characteristics from Google. This includes your age, what language you speak, where you live or what gender you belong to. There are also social criteria such as your profession, your marital status or your income. All these characteristics help Google Analytics to define groups of people or target groups.

The reports also help us to better assess your behavior, your wishes and interests. This enables us to optimize and adapt our services and products for you. By default, this data expires after 26 months. Please note that this data collection only takes place if you have allowed personalized advertising in your Google account. It is always aggregated and anonymous data and never individual data. You can manage or delete this data in your Google account.

Facebook-Pixel data protection declaration

We use the Facebook pixel from Facebook on our website. We have implemented a code for this on our website. The Facebook pixel is an excerpt from JavaScript code that loads a collection of functions with which Facebook can track your user actions, provided you have come to our website via Facebook ads. For example, if you purchase a product on our website, the Facebook pixel is triggered and saves your actions on our website in one or more cookies. These cookies enable Facebook to compare your user data (customer data such as IP address, user ID) with the data of your Facebook account. Then Facebook deletes this data again. The data collected is anonymous and cannot be viewed by us and can only be used in the context of advertising. If you are a Facebook user yourself and are logged in, your visit to our website is automatically assigned to your Facebook user account.

We want to show our services and products only to those people who are really interested in them. With the help of Facebook pixels, our advertising measures can be better tailored to your wishes and interests. In this way, Facebook users (provided they have allowed personalized advertising) see appropriate advertising. Furthermore, Facebook uses the collected data for analysis purposes and its own advertisements.

In the following we show you the cookies that were set on a test page by integrating Facebook pixels. Please note that these are only sample cookies. Different cookies are set depending on the interaction on our website.

Facebook automatic extended comparison data protection declaration

We have also activated the automatic advanced matching as part of the Facebook pixel function. This function of the pixel enables us to send hashed e-mails, names, gender, city, state, zip code and date of birth or telephone number as additional information to Facebook, provided that you have provided this data to us. This activation enables us to tailor advertising campaigns on Facebook even more precisely to people who are interested in our services or products.

Google Tag Manager Privacy Policy

For our website, we use the Google Tag Manager from Google Inc. For the European area, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. This Tag Manager is one of many helpful marketing products from Google. Using the Google Tag Manager, we can centrally integrate and manage code sections from various tracking tools that we use on our website.

In this data protection declaration we want to explain in more detail what the Google Tag Manager does, why we use it and in what form data is processed.

What is the Google Tag Manager?

The Google Tag Manager is an organization tool with which we can integrate and manage website tags centrally and via a user interface. Tags are small sections of code that, for example, record (track) your activities on our website. JavaScript code sections are used in the source code of our site for this purpose. The tags often come from internal Google products such as Google Ads orr Google Analytics, but also tags from other companies, can be integrated and managed via the manager. Such tags take on different tasks. You can collect browser data, feed marketing tools with data, integrate buttons, set cookies and also track users across multiple websites.

Why do we use Google Tag Manager for our website?

As the saying goes: organization is half the battle! And of course that also applies to the maintenance of our website. In order to make our website as good as possible for you and all people who are interested in our products and services, we need various tracking tools such as Google Analytics. The data collected by these tools shows us what interests you most, where we can improve our services and which people we should show our offers. And for this tracking to work, we have to integrate the corresponding JavaScript code into our website. In principle, we could incorporate each code section of the individual tracking tools separately into our source code. However, this takes a relatively long time and it is easy to lose track of things. That’s why we use the Google Tag Manager. We can easily integrate the necessary scripts and manage them from one place. In addition, the Google Tag Manager offers an easy-to-use user interface and you do not need any programming knowledge. This is how we manage to keep our day jungle in order.

What data is saved by Google Tag Manager?

The Tag Manager itself is a domain that does not set cookies and does not store any data. He acts as a mere “administrator” of the implemented tags. The data record the individual tags of the various web analysis tools. In the Google Tag Manager, the data is passed through to the individual tracking tools and not saved.

It looks completely different, however, with the integrated tags of the various web analysis tools, such as Google Analytics. Depending on the analysis tool, various data about your web behavior are usually collected, saved and processed with the help of cookies. To do this, please read our data protection texts on the individual analysis and tracking tools that we use on our website.

In the Tag Manager account settings, we have allowed Google to receive anonymized data from us. However, this only concerns the use and use of our Tag Manager and not your data, which is stored via the code sections. We enable Google and others to receive selected data in anonymized form. We therefore consent to our website data being passed on anonymously. In spite of long research, we were unable to find out which summarized and anonymous data are exactly forwarded. In any case, Google will delete all information that could identify our website. Google combines the data with hundreds of other anonymous website data and creates user trends as part of benchmarking measures. Benchmarking compares your own results with those of your competitors. Processes can be optimized on the basis of the information collected.

How long and where is the data stored?

When Google stores data, this data is stored on its own Google servers. The servers are distributed all over the world. Most of them are in America. Under https: //www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de you can read exactly where the Google servers are.

How long the individual tracking tools store your data can be found in our individual data protection texts for the individual tools.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

The Google Tag Manager itself does not set cookies, but manages tags from various tracking websites. In our data protection texts for the individual tracking tools, you will find detailed information on how you can delete or manage your data.

Google is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on this at https: // www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&tid=311237045 . If you want to learn more about the Google Tag Manager, we recommend the FAQs under https://www.google.com/intl /de/tagmanager/faq.html .

Google Site Kit Privacy Policy

We have integrated the WordPress plugin Google Site Kit from the American company Google Inc. into our website.

This also includes personal data such as your IP address.

We have separate sections of text in this data protection declaration for more detailed information on the individual services. For example, take a look at our privacy policy for Google Analytics. Here we go into the data collected very carefully. You will learn how long Google Analytics stores, manages and processes data, which cookies can be used and how you can prevent data storage. We also have our own data protection declarations with comprehensive information for other Google services such as Google Tag Manager or Google AdSense.

Newsletter privacy policy

If you subscribe to our newsletter, you submit the above personal data and give us the right to contact you by email. We use the data saved when registering for the newsletter only for our newsletter and do not pass it on.

Should you unsubscribe from the newsletter & # 8211; You can find the link for this at the bottom of every newsletter & # 8211; then we delete all data that was saved with the registration for the newsletter.

MailChimp privacy policy

Like many other websites, we also use the services of the newsletter company MailChimp on our website. MailChimp is operated by The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA. Thanks to MailChimp, we can very easily send you interesting news via newsletter. With MailChimp, we don’t have to install anything and can still draw on a pool of really useful functions. In the following we will go into more detail about this e-mail marketing service and inform you about the most important data protection-relevant aspects.

What is MailChimp?

MailChimp is a cloud-based newsletter management service. “Cloud-based” means that we don’t have to install MailChimp on our own computer or server. We use the service instead via an IT infrastructure & # 8211; which is available over the Internet – on an external server. This kind of software is also called SaaS (Software as a Service).

With MailChimp we can choose from a wide range of different email types. Depending on what we do with our newsletter, we can carry out individual campaigns, regular campaigns, autoresponders (automatic e-mail), A / B tests, RSS campaigns (broadcast in a predefined time and frequency) and follow-up campaigns.

Why do we use MailChimp on our website?

Basically we use a newsletter service so that we can stay in contact with you. We want to tell you what’s new with us or what attractive offers we currently have in our program. We always look for the simplest and best solutions for our marketing measures. And for this reason, we also decided to use Mailchimp’s newsletter management service. Although the software is very easy to use, it offers a large number of helpful features. In this way we can create interesting and beautiful newsletters in just a short time. With the design templates we offer, we design each newsletter individually and thanks to the “responsive design” our content is also displayed legibly and beautifully on your smartphone (or any other mobile device).

Thanks to tools such as the A / B test or the extensive analysis options, we can see very quickly how you get our newsletters. In this way we can react if necessary and improve our offer or our services.

Another advantage is Mailchimp’s “cloud system”. The data is not stored and processed directly on our server. We can retrieve the data from external servers and in this way save our storage space. In addition, the maintenance effort is significantly lower.

What data is saved by MailChimp?

The Rocket Science Group LLC (MailChimp) maintains online platforms that enable us to contact you (provided you have subscribed to our newsletter). If you become a subscriber to our newsletter via our website, you confirm your membership in a MailChimp e-mail list by e-mail. So that MailChimp can also prove that you have registered yourself in the “list provider”, the date of entry and your IP address are saved. MailChimp also stores your email address, your name, the physical address and demographic information, such as language or location.

This information is used to send you emails and to enable certain other MailChimp functions (such as evaluating the newsletter).

MailChimp also shares information with third parties to provide better services. MailChimp also shares some data with third-party advertising partners in order to better understand the interests and concerns of its customers so that more relevant content and targeted advertising can be provided.

Using so-called “web beacons” (these are small graphics in HTML e-mails) MailChimp can determine whether the e-mail has arrived, whether it has been opened and whether links have been clicked. All of this information is stored on the MailChimp servers. This gives us statistical evaluations and enables us to see exactly how well you received our newsletter. In this way we can adapt our offer much better to your wishes and improve our service.

MailChimp may also use this data to improve its own service. In this way, for example, the dispatch can be technically optimized or the location (country) of the recipient can be determined.

The following cookies can be set by Mailchimp. This is not a complete list of cookies, but rather an exemplary selection:

Sometimes it can happen that you open our newsletter for a better presentation via a given link. This is the case, for example, if your e-mail program does not work or the newsletter is not displayed properly. The newsletter is then displayed on a MailChimp website. MailChimp also uses cookies (small text files that save data on your browser) on its own websites. Personal data can be processed by MailChimp and its partners (e.g. Google Analytics). This data collection is the responsibility of MailChimp and we have no influence on it. In the “Cookie Statement” from MailChimp (under: https: / /mailchimp.com/legal/cookies/ ) you can find out exactly how and why the company uses cookies.

How long and where is the data stored?

Since MailChimp is an American company, all collected data is also stored on American servers.

In principle, the data remains permanently stored on Mailchimp’s servers and is only deleted when you request it. You can have your contact deleted by us. This permanently removes all your personal data for us and anonymizes you in the Mailchimp reports. However, you can also request the deletion of your data directly from MailChimp. Then all your data will be removed there and we will receive a notification from MailChimp. After receiving the email, we have 30 days to delete your contact from all associated integrations.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

You can withdraw your consent to receive our newsletter at any time within the received email by clicking on the link in the area below. If you have unsubscribed by clicking on the unsubscribe link, your data will be deleted from MailChimp.

If you get to a MailChimp website via a link in our newsletter and cookies are set in your browser, you can delete or deactivate these cookies at any time.

Depending on the browser, deactivating or deleting works a little differently. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete cookies in Chrome , activate and manage

Safari: Managing cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

If you generally do not want cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. So you can decide for each individual cookie whether you allow it or not.

What is Google AdSense?

The Google AdSense advertising program has been around since 2003. In contrast to Google Ads (formerly: Google AdWords), you cannot advertise yourself here. Ads are displayed on websites such as ours via Google AdSense. The biggest advantage of this advertising service compared to some others is that Google AdSense only shows you ads that match our content. Google has its own algorithm that calculates which advertisements you will see. Of course, we only want to offer you advertising that interests you and offers you added value. On the basis of your interests or your user behavior and our offer, Google checks which advertisements are suitable for our website and for our users. At this point we would like to mention that we are not responsible for the selection of advertisements. We only offer advertising space on our website. The selection of the displayed advertising is made by Google. Since August 2013, the displays have also been adapted to the respective user interface. That means, regardless of whether you visit our website from your smartphone, PC or laptop, the displays adapt to your device.

Why do we use Google AdSense on our website?

Running a quality website takes a lot of dedication and effort. Basically, we’re never finished working on our website. We always try to maintain our site and keep it as up-to-date as possible. Of course, we also want to achieve economic success with this work. That’s why we decided to use advertisements as a source of income. The most important thing for us, however, is not to disturb your visit to our website with these advertisements. With the help of Google AdSense, you will only be offered advertising that matches our topics and your interests.

Similar to the Google indexing for a website, a bot examines the corresponding content and the corresponding offers on our website. The content of the advertisements is then adjusted and presented on the website. In addition to the content-related overlaps between the ad and the website, AdSense also supports interest-based targeting. This means that Google also uses your data to offer advertising tailored to you. In this way, you receive advertising that ideally offers you real added value and we have a higher chance of earning a little something.

What data is stored by Google AdSense?

Cookies are used, among other things, so that Google AdSense can display tailored, customized advertising. Cookies are small text files that store certain information on your computer.

In AdSense, cookies are supposed to enable better advertising. The cookies do not contain any personally identifiable informationn data. It should be noted, however, that Google data such as & # 8220; pseudonymous cookie IDs & # 8221; (Name or other identification feature is replaced by a pseudonym) or IP addresses are viewed as non-personally identifiable information. However, within the framework of the GDPR, this data can be considered personal data. Google AdSense sends a cookie to the browser after every impression (this is always the case when you see an ad), every click and every other activity that leads to a call to the Google AdSense server. If the browser accepts the cookie, it will be saved there.

Third-party providers may, as part of AdSense, place and read cookies in your browser or use web beacons to save data that they receive through the provision of advertisements on the website. Web beacons are small graphics that analyze the log file and record the log file. This analysis enables a statistical evaluation for online marketing.

Google can use these cookies to collect certain information about your user behavior on our website. These include:

  • Information on how to deal with an ad (clicks, impressions, mouse movements)
  • Information as to whether an advertisement has already appeared in your browser at an earlier point in time. This data will help prevent you from showing an ad more often.

In doing so, Google analyzes the data on the displayed advertising material and your IP address and evaluates them. Google uses the data primarily to measure the effectiveness of an ad and to improve the advertising offer. These data are not linked to personal data that Google may have about you via other Google services.

In the following we introduce you to cookies that Google AdSense uses for tracking purposes. We are referring to a test website that exclusively installed Google AdSense:

Google Ads (Google AdWords) Conversion-Tracking Privacy Policy

We use Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords) as an online marketing measure to advertise our products and services. We want to make more people aware of the high quality of our offers on the Internet. As part of our advertising measures through Google Ads, we use conversion tracking from Google Inc. on our website. In Europe, however, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. With the help of this free tracking tool, we can better adapt our advertising offer to your interests and needs. In the following article we want to go into more detail about why we use conversion tracking, which data is stored and how you can prevent this data storage.

What is Google Ads Conversion Tracking?

Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords) is the in-house online advertising system of the company Google Inc. We are convinced of the quality of our offer and want as many people as possible to get to know our website. In the online area, Google Ads offers the best platform for this. Of course, we also want to get a precise overview of the cost-benefit factor of our advertising campaigns. That’s why we use the Google Ads conversion tracking tool.

But what is a conversion actually? A conversion occurs when you change from a purely interested website visitor to an active visitor. This always happens when you click on our ad and then perform another action, such as visiting our website. With the conversion tracking tool from Google, we record what happens after a user clicks on our Google Ads ad. For example, we can see whether products are being purchased, services are being used or whether users have signed up for our newsletter.

Why do we use Google Ads conversion tracking on our website?

We use Google Ads to draw attention to our offer on other websites. The aim is that our advertising campaigns really only reach those people who are interested in our offers. With the conversion tracking tool, we can see which keywords, ads, ad groups and campaigns lead to the desired customer actions. We see how many customers interact with our ads on a device and then convert. With this data we can calculate our cost-benefit factor, measure the success of individual advertising measures and consequently optimize our online marketing measures. Furthermore, with the help of the data obtained, we can make our website more interesting for you and adapt our advertising offer even more individually to your needs.

What data is stored in Google Ads conversion tracking?

We have integrated a conversion tracking tag or code snippet on our website in order to be able to better analyze certain user actions. If you now click on one of our Google Ads ads, the “Conversion” cookie from a Google domain is saved on your computer (usually in the browser) or mobile device. Cookies are small text files that store information on your computer.

Here are the data of the most important cookies for Google conversion tracking:

Name: Conversion
Value: EhMI_aySuoyv4gIVled3Ch0llweVGAEgt-mr6aXd7dYlSAGQ311237045-3
Purpose: This cookie saves every conversion that you make on our site after you have come to us via a Google ad.
Expiry date: after 3 months

Name: _gac
Value: 1.1558695989.EAIaIQobChMIiOmEgYO04gIVj5AYCh2CBAPrEAAYASAAEgIYQfD_BwE
Purpose: This is a classic Google Analytics cookie and is used to record various actions on our website.
Expiry date: after 3 months

Note: The _gac cookie only appears in connection with Google Analytics. The above list does not claim to be complete, as Google repeatedly uses other cookies for analytical evaluation.

As soon as you complete an action on our website, Google recognizes the cookie and saves your action as a so-called conversion. As long as you are surfing our website and the cookie has not yet expired, recognizewe and Google that you found us via our Google Ads ad. The cookie is read out and sent back to Google Ads with the conversion data. It is also possible that other cookies are used to measure conversions. Google Ads conversion tracking can be refined and improved with the help of Google Analytics. In the case of advertisements that Google shows in different places on the web, cookies with the name & # 8220; __ gads & # 8221; or “_gac” set. Since September 2017, various campaign information has been saved by analytics.js with the _gac cookie. The cookie saves this data as soon as you visit one of our pages for which Google Ads automatic tagging has been set up. In contrast to cookies that are set for Google domains, Google can only read these conversion cookies when you are on our website. We do not collect or receive any personal data. We get a report from Google with statistical evaluations. For example, we find out the total number of users who clicked on our ad and we can see which advertising measures were well received.

How long and where is the data stored?

At this point we want to point out that we have no influence on how Google uses the collected data. According to Google, the data is encrypted and stored on secure servers. In most cases, conversion cookies expire after 30 days and do not transmit any personal data. The cookies with the name “Conversion” and “_gac” (which is used in connection with Google Analytics) have an expiration date of 3 months.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

You have the option not to participate in Google Ads conversion tracking. If you deactivate the Google Conversion Tracking cookie via your browser, you block conversion tracking. In this case you will not be included in the statistics of the tracking tool. You can change the cookie settings in your browser at any time. This works a little differently for each browser. Here you will find instructions on how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete cookies in Chrome , activate and manage

Safari: Managing cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

If you generally do not want cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. For each individual cookie, you can decide whether or not to allow the cookie. By downloading and installing this browser plug-in on https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996 all” advertising cookies “are also deactivated. Please note that by deactivating these cookies you will not prevent the advertisements, but only the personalized advertisements.

Due to the certification for the American-European data protection agreement & # 8220; Privacy Shield & # 8221; the American group Google LLC must comply with the data protection laws applicable in the EU. If you would like to find out more about data protection at Google, we recommend the general data protection declaration from Google: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de .

Embedded social media elements data protection declaration

We integrate elements of social media services on our website around images, videos and textsto display.
When you visit pages that display these elements, data is transferred from your browser to the respective social media service and stored there. We do not have access to this data.
The following links lead you to the pages of the respective social media services where it is explained how they handle your data:

Facebook privacy policy

We use selected Facebook tools on our website. Facebook is a social media network operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2 Ireland. With the help of these tools we can offer you and people who are interested in our products and services the best possible offer. In the following we provide an overview of the various Facebook tools, which data is sent to Facebook and how you can delete this data.

What are Facebook tools?

In addition to many other products, Facebook also offers the so-called & # 8220; Facebook Business Tools & # 8221; at. This is the official name of Facebook. But since the term is hardly known, we decided to call them just Facebook tools. These include:

  • Facebook pixels
  • social plug-ins (such as the “Like” or “Share” button)
  • Facebook login
  • Account Kit
  • APIs (programming interface)
  • SDKs (collection of programming tools)
  • Platform integrations
  • Plugins
  • Codes
  • Specifications
  • Documentation
  • Technologies and services

With these tools, Facebook expands services and has the option of receiving information about user activities outside of Facebook.

Why do we use Facebook tools on our website?

We only want to show our services and products to people who are really interested in them. With the help of advertisements (Facebook ads) we can reach exactly these people. However, in order to be able to show users appropriate advertising, Facebook needs information about people’s wishes and needs. Information about user behavior (and contact details) is made available to the company on our website. As a result, Facebook collects better user data and can show interested people the right advertising about our products or services. The tools thus enable customized advertising campaigns on Facebook.

Facebook calls data about your behavior on our website “event data”. These are also used for measurement and analysis services. In this way Facebook can create “campaign reports” on our behalf about the impact of our advertising campaigns. Furthermore, analyzes give us a better insight into how you use our services, website or products. This enables us to optimize your user experience on our website with some of these tools. For example, you can use the social plug-ins to share content on our site directly on Facebook.

What data are stored by Facebook tools?

By using individual Facebook tools, personal data (customer data) can be sent to Facebook. Depending on the tools used, customer data such as name, address, telephone number and IP address can be sent.

Facebook uses this information to match the data with the data it’seleven of you (if you are a Facebook member). So-called “hashing” takes place before customer data is transmitted to Facebook. This means that any large data set is transformed into a character string. This is also used to encrypt data.

In addition to the contact details, “event data” are also transmitted. “Event data” means the information that we receive about you on our website. For example, which sub-pages you visit or which products you buy from us. Facebook does not share the information it receives with third parties (such as advertisers) unless the company has explicit permission or is legally obliged to do so. “Event data” can also be linked to contact details. This enables Facebook to offer better personalized advertising. After the already mentioned comparison process, Facebook will delete the contact details.

In order to be able to deliver advertisements in an optimized way, Facebook only uses the event data if this has been combined with other data (which were recorded by Facebook in a different way). Facebook also uses this event data for security, protection, development and research purposes. Much of this data is transferred to Facebook via cookies. Cookies are small text files that are used to store data or information in browsers. Depending on the tools used and whether you are a Facebook member, a different number of cookies are created in your browser. In the descriptions of the individual Facebook tools, we go into more detail on individual Facebook cookies. General information about the use of Facebook cookies can also be found at https://www.facebook.com/policies/cookies .

How long and where is the data stored?

Basically, Facebook saves data until it is no longer needed for its own services and Facebook products. Facebook has servers all over the world where your data is stored. However, customer data will be deleted within 48 hours after it has been compared with your own user data.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

According to the General Data Protection Regulation you have the right to information, correction, portability and deletion of your data.

The data will only be completely deleted if you completely delete your Facebook account. And this is how deleting your Facebook account works:

1) On the right side of Facebook, click Settings.

2) Then click on “Your Facebook information” in the left column.

3) Now click & # 8220; Deactivation and deletion & # 8221 ;.

4) Now select “Delete account” and then click on “Next and delete account”

5) Now enter your password, click on “Next” and then on “Delete account”

The storage of the data that Facebook receives via our site takes place, among other things, via cookies (e.g. with social plugins). You can deactivate, delete or manage individual or all cookies in your browser. Depending on which browser you are using, this works in different ways. The following instructions show how to manage cookies in your browser:

Chrome: Delete cookies in Chrome , activate and manage

Instagram privacy policy

We have installed Instagram functions on our website. Instagram is a social media platform operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025, USA. Instagram has been a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. since 2012 and is a Facebook product. Embedding Instagram content on our website is called embedding. This enables us to show you content such as buttons, photos or videos from Instagram directly on our website. When you visit our website that has an Instagram function integrated, data is transmitted to Instagram, stored and processed. Instagram uses the same systems and technologies as Facebook. Your data will be processed across all Facebook companies.

In the following we would like to give you a more detailed insight into why Instagram collects data, what data it is and how you can largely control the data processing. Since Instagram belongs to Facebook Inc., we obtain our information from the Instagram guidelines on the one hand, but also from the Facebook data guidelines themselves on the other.

What is Instagram?

Instagram is one of the most famous social media networks worldwide. Instagram combines the advantages of a blog with the advantages of audiovisual platforms such as YouTube or Vimeo. You can upload photos and short videos to “Insta” (as many of the users casually call the platform), edit them with various filters and also distribute them on other social networks. And if you don’t want to be active yourself, you can just follow other interesting users.

Why do we use Instagram on our website?

Instagram is the social media platform that has really gone through the roof in recent years. And of course we have reacted to this boom too. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible on our website. That is why a varied preparation of our content is a matter of course for us. Thanks to the embedded Instagram functions, we can enrich our content with helpful, funny or exciting content from the Instagram world. Since Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook, the data collected can also be used for personalized advertising on Facebook. Our advertisements are only given to people who are really interested in our products or services.

Instagram also uses the collected data for measurement and analysis purposes. We get summarized statistics and thus more insight into your wishes and interests. It is important to mention that these reports do not personally identify you.

What data does Instagram store?

If you come across one of our pages that has Instagram functions (such as Instagram images or plug-ins) installed, your browser will automatically connect to Instagram’s servers. In doing so, data is sent to Instagram, stored and processed. Regardless of whether you have an Instagram account or not. This includes information about our website, about your computer, about purchases made, about advertisements that you see and how you use our offer. The date and time of your interaction with Instagram are also saved. If you have an Instagram account or are logged in, Instagram saves significantly more data about you.

Facebook differentiates between customer data and event data. We assume this is exactly the case with Instagram. Customer data are, for example, name, address, telephone number and IP address. It is important to mention that this customer data is only transmitted to Instagram after it has been “hashed” beforehand. Hashing means that a data record is converted into a character string. This allows you to encrypt the contact details. In addition, the above-mentioned “event data” are also transmitted. Facebook understands “event data” – and so onch also Instagram – data about your user behavior. It can also happen that contact data is combined with event data. The collected contact data will be compared with the data that Instagram already has about you.

The collected data is transmitted to Facebook via small text files (cookies), which are usually set in your browser. Depending on the Instagram functions used and whether you have an Instagram account yourself, different amounts of data are stored.

We assume that data processing on Instagram works the same as on Facebook. That means: if you have an Instagram account or www. Instagram.com , Instagram has set at least one cookie. If this is the case, your browser sends information to Instagram via the cookie as soon as you come into contact with an Instagram function. After 90 days at the latest (after reconciliation), this data will be deleted or anonymized. Although we have dealt intensively with data processing by Instagram, we cannot say exactly which data Instagram collects and stores.

In the following we show you cookies that are set in your browser at least when you click on an Instagram function (such as a button or an Insta picture). Our test assumes that you do not have an Instagram account. If you are logged in to Instagram, significantly more cookies will of course be set in your browser.

These cookies were used in our test:

Purpose: This cookie is used for marketing purposes by Instagram.
Expiration date: at the end of the session

Note: We cannot claim to be complete. Which cookies are set in the individual case depends on the embedded functions and your use of Instagram.

How long and where is the data stored?

Instagram shares the information received between the Facebook companies with external partners and with people with whom you connect worldwide. The data processing takes place in compliance with our own data guidelines. For security reasons, among other things, your data is distributed on Facebook servers around the world. Most of these servers are in the US.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

Thanks to the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to information, portability, correction and deletion of your data. You can manage your data in the Instagram settings. If you want to completely delete your data on Instagram, you have to permanently delete your Instagram account.

And this is how the deletion of the Instagram Kon workstos:

First, open the Instagram app. On your profile page, go down and click on “Help Center”. You are now on the company’s website. On the website, click on “Manage Your Account” and then click on “Delete Your Account”.

If you delete your account entirely, Instagram will delete posts such as your photos and status updates. Information that other people have shared about you does not belong to your account and therefore will not be deleted.

As already mentioned above, Instagram stores your data primarily via cookies. You can manage, deactivate or delete these cookies in your browser. Management always works a little differently depending on your browser. Here we show you the instructions for the most important browsers.

Chrome: delete cookies in Chrome, activate and manage

Safari : Managing cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: deleting and managing cookies

You can also set up your browser so that you are always informed when a cookie is to be set. Then you can always decide individually whether you want to allow the cookie or not.

Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. and Facebook is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. This framework ensures correct data transfer between the USA and the European Union. Under https://www.privacyshield.gov/ participant? id = a2zt0000000GnywAAC learn more about it. We have tried to give you the most important information about data processing by Instagram. On https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875

you can take a closer look at Instagram’s data guidelines.

Twitter privacy policy

We have integrated Twitter functions on our website. These are, for example, embedded tweets, timelines, buttons or hashtags. Twitter is a short message service and a social media platform from Twitter Inc., One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street, Dublin 2 D02 AX07, Ireland.

To the best of our knowledge, no personal data or data on your web activities are transmitted to Twitter in the European Economic Area and in Switzerland simply by integrating the Twitter function. Only when you interact with the Twitter functions, such as clicking a button, can data be sent to Twitter, stored and processed there. We have no influence on this data processing and are not responsible. As part of this data protection declaration, we want to give you an overview of what data Twitter stores, what Twitter does with this data and how you can largely protect yourself from data transmission.

What is Twitter?

For some, Twitter is a news service, for others a social media platform and still others speak of a microblogging service. All of these terms are justified and mean more or less the same thing.

Both private individuals and companies use Twitter to communicate with interested people via short messages. Twitter only allows 280 characters per message. These messages are called “tweets”. In contrast to Facebook, for example, the service does not focus on expanding a network for & # 8220; friends & # 8221; but wants to be understood as a global and open news platform. You can also have an anonymous account on Twitter and tweets can be sent by the company on the one hand and by the users themselves on the otherdeleted.

Why do we use Twitter on our website?

Like many other websites and companies, we try to offer our services through various channels and to communicate with our customers. Twitter in particular has grown dear to us as a useful “little” news service. We repeatedly tweet or retweet exciting, funny or interesting content. We realize that you cannot follow every channel separately. After all, you have something else to do. That is why we have also integrated Twitter functions on our website. You can experience our Twitter activity “on site” or come to our Twitter page via a direct link. By integrating it, we want to strengthen our service and user-friendliness on our website.

What data is stored by Twitter?

On some of our sub-pages you will find the built-in Twitter functions. If you interact with the Twitter content, such as clicking a button, Twitter can collect and save data. Even if you don’t have a Twitter account yourself. Twitter calls this data & # 8220; log data & # 8221 ;. This includes demographic data, browser cookie IDs, the ID of your smartphone, hashed e-mail addresses, and information about which pages you have visited on Twitter and what actions you have taken. Of course, Twitter stores more data if you have a Twitter account and are logged in. This storage mostly takes place via cookies. Cookies are small text files that are usually set in your browser and transmit various information to Twitter.

We will now show you which cookies are set if you are not logged in to Twitter but visit a website with built-in Twitter functions. Please consider this list as an example. We cannot guarantee completeness here, as the choice of cookies is always changing and depends on your individual actions with the Twitter content.

These cookies were used in our test:

Purpose: With this cookie you can use functions within the Twitter website.
Expiration date: after the session ends

Note: Twitter also works with third parties. That is why we also recognized the three Google Analytics cookies _ga, _gat, _gid in our test.

Twitter uses the collected data on the one hand to better understand user behavior and thus improve its own services and promotional offers, on the other hand the data also serve internal security measures.

How long and where is the data stored?

If Twitter collects data from other websites, these are deleted, summarized or otherwise hidden after a maximum of 30 days. The Twitter servers are located at various server centers in the United States. It can therefore be assumed that the data collected will be collected and stored in America. After our research we could not clearly determine whether Twitter also has its own servers in Europe. In principle, Twitter can save the collected data until it is no longer useful for the company, you delete the data or there is a statutory deletion period.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

Twitter repeatedly emphasizes in its data protection guidelines that it does not store any data from external website visits if you or your browser are located in the European Economic Area or in Switzerland. However, if you interact with Twitter directly, Twitter will of course also save your data.

If you have a Twitter account, you can manage your data by clicking on “More” under the “Profile” button. Then click on “Settings and data protection”. Here you can manage the data processing individually.

If you do not have a Twitter account, you can go to twitter.com and then click on “Personalization” click. You can manage the data you have collected under “Individualization and data”.

As already mentioned above, most of the data is stored via cookies and you can manage, deactivate or delete them in your browser. Please note that you can only & # 8220; edit & # 8221; the cookies in the browser you have selected. That means: if you use a different browser in the future, you will have to manage your cookies there again according to your wishes. Here are instructions for managing cookies in the most popular browsers.

Chrome: Delete cookies in Chrome , activate and manage

Safari: Managing cookies and website data with Safari

Firefox: delete cookies to remove data that websites have stored on your computer

Internet Explorer: deleting and managing cookies

Microsoft Edge: Deleting and managing cookies

You can also manage your browser so that you are informed of each individual cookie. Then you can always decide individually whether you allow a cookie or not.

Twitter also uses the data for personalized advertising inside and outside of Twitter. In the settings you can switch off personalized advertising under “Personalization and data”. If you use Twitter on a browser, you can use the personalized advertising at deactivate http://optout.aboutads.info/?c=2&lang=EN .

Twitter is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. This framework ensures correct data transfer between the USA and the European Union. Under https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TORzAAO learn more about it.

We hope that we have given you a general overview of data processing by Twitter. We do not receive any data from Twitter and are not responsible for what Twitter does with your data. If you have any further questions on this topic, we recommend the Twitter data protection declaration at https://twitter.com / de / privacy .

YouTube privacy policy

We have installed YouTube videos on our website. So we can present you interesting videos directly on our website. YouTube is a video portal that has been a subsidiary of Google since 2006. The video portal is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you call up a page on our website that has embedded a YouTube video, your browser automatically connects to the YouTube or Google servers. Different data are transmitted (depending on the settings). Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all data processing in Europe.

In the following we would like to explain in more detail which data is processed, why we have integrated YouTube videos and how you can manage or delete your data.

What is YouTube?

On YouTube, users can watch, rate, comment and upload videos for free. Over the past few years, YouTube has become one of the most important social media channels in the world. So that we can display videos on our website, YouTube provides a code excerpt that we have built into our site.

Why do we use YouTube videos on our website?

YouTube is the video platform with the most visitors and the best content. We strive to offer you the best possible user experience on our website. And of course interesting videos shouldn’t be missing. With the help of our embedded videos, we provide you with other helpful content in addition to our texts and images. In addition, our website is more easily found on the Google search engine thanks to the embedded videos. Even if we place advertisements via Google Ads, thanks to the data collected, Google can really only show these advertisements to people who are interested in our offers.

What data is stored by YouTube?

As soon as you visit one of our pages that has a YouTube video integrated, YouTube sets at least one cookie that saves your IP address and our URL. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can usually assign your interactions on our website to your profile using cookies. This includes data such as session duration, bounce rate, approximate location, technical information such as browser type, screen resolution or your Internet provider. Further data can be contact details, any ratings, sharing content via social media or adding it to your favorites on YouTube.

If you are not signed in to a Google account or a YouTube account, Google stores data with a unique identifier that is linked to your device, browser or app. For example, your preferred language setting is retained. But a lot of interaction data cannot be saved because fewer cookies are set.

In the following list we show cookies that were set in a test in the browser. On the one hand, we show cookies that are set without a registered YouTube account. On the other hand, we show cookies that are set with a registered account. The list cannot claim to be complete because the user data always depends on the interactions on YouTube.

YouTube uses this data on the one hand to improve its own services and offers and on the other hand to provide analyzes and statistics for advertisers (who use Google Ads).

Vimeo privacy policy

We also use videos from Vimeo on our website. The video portal is operated by Vimeo LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. With the help of a plug-in, we can show you interesting video material directly on our website. Certain data can be transferred from you to Vimeo. In this data protection declaration we show you what data is involved, why we use Vimeo and how you can manage or prevent your data or data transfer.

What is Vimeo?

Vimeo is a video platform that was founded in 2004 and has been able to stream videos in HD quality since 2007. Since 2015 it has also been possible to stream in 4k Ultra HD. Use of the portal is free of charge, but paid content can also be published. Compared to the market leader YouTube, Vimeo attaches great importance to high-quality content in good quality. On the one hand, the portal offers a lot of artistic content such as music videos and short films, on the other hand, it also offers interesting documentaries on a wide variety of topics.

Why do we use Vimeo on our website?

The aim of our website is to provide you with the best possible content. As easily accessible as possible. We are only satisfied with our service when we have achieved this. The video service Vimeo supports us in achieving this goal. Vimeo offers us the opportunity to present you high quality content directly on our website.

In addition to our texts and images, we also offer video content.

What data is stored on Vimeo?

When you visit a website on our website that has embedded a Vimeo video, your browser connects to the Vimeo servers. This results in a data transfer. This data is collected, saved and processed on the Vimeo servers. Regardless of whether you have a Vimeo account or not, Vimeo collects data about you. This includes your IP address, technical information about your browser type, your operating system or very basic device information. Vimeo also stores information about which website you use the Vimeo service and which actions (web activities) you carry out on our website. These web activities include, for example, session duration, bounce rate or which button you clicked on our website with a built-in Vimeo function. Vimeo can track and save these actions with the help of cookies and similar technologies.

If you are logged in as a registered member of Vimeo, more data can usually be collected, as more cookies may have already been set in your browser. In addition, your actions on our website are linked directly to your Vimeo account. To prevent this from happening, you have to log in while & # 8220; Surfing & # 8221; on our website, log out of Vimeo.

Below we show you cookies that are set by Vimeo when you are on a website with an integrated Vimeo function. This list is by no means exhaustive and assumes that you do not have a Vimeo account.

How long and where is the data stored?

Vimeo is headquartered in White Plains, New York State (USA). However, the services are offered worldwide. The company uses computer systems, databases and servers in the USA and in other countries. Your data can therefore also be stored and processed on servers in America. The data remains stored at Vimeo until the company has no economic reasonr has for storage. Then the data will be deleted or anonymized. Vimeo corresponds to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and is therefore allowed to collect, use and transfer data from users from the EU to the USA.

Zoom Privacy Policy

We use the video conferencing tool Zoom from the American software company Zoom Video Communications for our website. The company’s headquarters are in San Jose, California, at 55 Almaden Boulevard, 6th Floor, CA 95113. Thanks to “Zoom”, we can hold a video conference with customers, business partners, clients and employees very easily and without any software installation. In this data protection declaration we go into more detail about the service and inform you about the most important data protection-relevant aspects.

What is zoom?

Zoom is one of the world’s most popular video conferencing solutions. With the “Zoom Meetings” service, for example, we can hold an online video conference with you, but also with employees or other users in a digital conference room. We can very easily get in touch digitally, exchange ideas on various topics, send text messages or even make phone calls. You can also use zoom to share the screen, exchange files and use a whiteboard.

Why are we using zoom on our website?

It is important to us that we can communicate with you quickly and easily. And this is exactly what Zoom offers us. The software program also works directly through a browser. That means we can simply send you a link and start the video conference. In addition, additional functions such as screen sharing or exchanging files are of course very practical.

What data does Zoom save?

If you use Zoom, data will also be collected from you so that Zoom can provide its services. On the one hand, these are data,that you consciously make available to the company. This includes, for example, your name, telephone number or your e-mail address. However, data is also automatically transmitted to Zoom and saved. This includes, for example, the technical data of your browser or your IP address. In the following, we will go into more detail about the data that Zoom can collect and store from you:

If you provide data such as your name, your user name, your e-mail address or your telephone number, this data will be saved by Zoom. Content that you upload while using Zoom is also saved. This includes, for example, files or chat logs.

The technical data that Zoom automatically saves includes not only the IP address mentioned above, but also the MAC address, other device IDs, device type, which operating system you use, which client you use, camera type, microphone and Speaker type. Your approximate location is also determined and saved. Zoom also stores information about how you use the service. For example, whether you “zoom in” on your desktop or smartphone, whether you use a phone call or VoIP, whether you participate with or without a video or whether you request a password. Zoom also records so-called metadata such as duration of the meeting / call, start and end of meeting participation, meeting name and chat status.

Zoom mentions in its own data protection declaration that the company does not use advertising cookies or tracking technologies for its services. Only on your own marketing websites such as www.zoom.us these tracking methods are used. Zoom does not sell on personal data and does not use it for advertising purposes.

How long and where is the data stored?

Zoom does not announce a specific time frame in this regard, but emphasizes that the data collected will be stored as long as it is necessary to provide the services or for its own purposes. The data will only be stored for longer if this is required for legal reasons.

Basically, Zoom saves the collected data on American servers, but data can arrive at different data centers worldwide.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

If you do not want data to be saved during the Zoom meeting, you must forego the meeting. However, you always have the right and the option to have all your personal data deleted. If you have a Zoom account, see https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201363243-How-Do-I-Delete-Terminate- My-Account instructions on how to delete your account.

Zoom Video Communications is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on this at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TNkCAAW&status=Active .
We hope to have given you an overview of data processing by Zoom. Of course, the company’s data protection guidelines can always change. We therefore recommend the Zoom data protection declaration for more information at https://zoom.us/de-de/privacy.html .

Google reCAPTCHA privacy policy

Our primary goal is to secure and protect our website for you and for us in the best possible way. To ensure this, we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google Inc. For the European region, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. With reCAPTCHA we can determine whether you are really a human being made of flesh and Blut and not a robot or other spam software. We understand spam to be any unsolicited information that comes to us electronically. With the classic CAPTCHAS you mostly had to solve text or picture puzzles to check. With reCAPTCHA from Google, we usually don’t have to bother you with such puzzles. In most cases, it is sufficient to simply tick the box and confirm that you are not a bot. With the new Invisible reCAPTCHA version you don’t even have to check the box anymore. You can find out exactly how this works and, above all, which data is used for it in the course of this data protection declaration.

What is reCAPTCHA?

reCAPTCHA is a free captcha service from Google that protects websites from spam software and abuse by non-human visitors. The most common use of this service is when filling out forms on the Internet. A captcha service is a type of automatic Turing test that aims to ensure that an action on the Internet is carried out by a human and not by a bot. In the classic Turing test (named after the computer scientist Alan Turing), a person determines the difference between bot and human. With captchas, this is also done by the computer or a software program. Classic captchas work with small tasks that are easy for humans to solve, but are very difficult for machines. With reCAPTCHA, you no longer have to actively solve puzzles. The tool uses modern risk techniques to distinguish people from bots. Here you only have to tick the text field “I am not a robot” or with Invisible reCAPTCHA even that is no longer necessary. With reCAPTCHA, a JavaScript element is integrated into the source text and then the tool runs in the background and analyzes your user behavior. The software calculates a so-called captcha score from these user actions. Google uses this score to calculate the probability that you are human before entering the captcha. reCAPTCHA or captchas in general are always used when bots could manipulate or abuse certain actions (such as registrations, surveys, etc.).

Why do we use reCAPTCHA on our website?

We only want to welcome people of flesh and blood to our side. Bots or spam software of all kinds can safely stay at home. That is why we do everything possible to protect ourselves and offer you the best possible user-friendliness. For this reason we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google. So we can be pretty sure that we will remain a “bot-free” website. By using reCAPTCHA, data is transmitted to Google in order to determine whether you are really human. reCAPTCHA therefore serves the security of our website and consequently also your security. For example, without reCAPTCHA, it could happen that a bot registers as many email addresses as possible in order to “spam” on forums or blogs with unwanted advertising content. With reCAPTCHA we can avoid such bot attacks.

Which data is saved by reCAPTCHA?

reCAPTCHA collects personal data from users in order to determine whether the actions on our website really originate from people. So the IP address and other data that Google needs for the reCAPTCHA service can be sent to Google. IP addresses are almost always shortened beforehand within the member states of the EU or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before the data ends up on a server in the USA. The IP address will not be combined with other Google data unless you are logged into your Google account while using reCAPTCHA. First, the reCAPTCHA algorithm checks whether Google cookies from other Google services (YouTube, Gmail, etc.) have already been placed on your browser. ReCAPTCHA then sets an additional cookie in your browser and takes a snapshot of your browser window.

The following list of collected browser and user data does not claim to be complete. Rather, they are examples of data that, to our knowledge, are processed by Google.

  • Referrer URL (the address of the page from which the visitor comes)
  • IP address (e.g. 256.123.123.1)
  • Information about the operating system (the software that enables the operation of your computer. Known operating systems are Windows, Mac OS X or Linux)
  • Cookies (small text files that contain Daten in your browser)
  • Mouse and keyboard behavior (every action you perform with the mouse or keyboard is saved)
  • Date and language settings (which language or which date you have preset on your PC is saved)
  • All Javascript objects (JavaScript is a programming language that allows websites to adapt to the user. JavaScript objects can collect all possible data under one name)
  • Screen resolution (shows how many pixels the image consists of)

It is undisputed that Google uses and analyzes this data even before you click the “I am not a robot” checkbox. With the Invisible reCAPTCHA version, there is even no ticking and the entire recognition process runs in the background. How much and which data Google stores exactly cannot be learned from Google in detail.

The following cookies are used by reCAPTCHA: Here we refer to the reCAPTCHA demo version from Google under https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo . All of these cookies require a unique identifier for tracking purposes. Here is a list of cookies that Google reCAPTCHA has set on the demo version:

How long and where is the data stored?

By inserting reCAPTCHA, your data will be transferred to the Google server. Where exactly this data is stored, Google does not clearly state, even after repeated inquiries. Without having received a confirmation from Google, it can be assumed that data such as mouse interaction, time spent on the website or language settings on the European or American Google Servers. The IP address that your browser transmits to Google is generally not merged with other Google data from other Google services. However, if you are logged into your Google account while using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, the data will be merged. The differing data protection regulations of Google apply.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

If you do not want any data about you or your behavior to be transmitted to Google, you must completely log out of Google and delete all Google cookies before you visit our website or use the reCAPTCHA software. In principle, the data is automatically transmitted to Google as soon as you visit our website.

A good overview of the basic use of data by Google can be found in the in-house data protection declaration at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/ .

WooCommerce privacy policy

We have integrated the open source shop system WooCommerce as a plugin on our website. This WooCommerce plugin is based on the content management system WordPress, which is a subsidiary of Automattic Inc. (60 29th Street # 343, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA). The implemented functions send, store and process data to Automattic Inc. In this data protection declaration we inform you about the data, how the network uses this data and how you can manage or prevent data storage.

What is WooCommerce?

WooCommerce is an online shop system that has been part of the WordPress directory since 2011 and was specially developed for WordPress websites. It is a customizable, open source eCommerce platform that is based on WordPress and has also been integrated into our website as a WordPress plugin.

Why do we use WooCommerce on our website?

We use this practical online shop solution in order to be able to offer you our physical or digital products or services in the best possible way on our website. The aim is to give you simple and easy access to our range so that you can get to the products you want quickly and easily. With WooCommerce we have found a good plugin that meets our requirements for an online shop.

Which data is saved by WooCommerce?

Information that you actively enter in a text field in our online shop can be collected and saved by WooCommerce or Automattic. So when you register with us or order a product, Automattic can collect, process and save this data. In addition to e-mail address, name or address, this can also include credit card or billing information. Automattic can then use this information for its own marketing campaigns.

There is also information that Automattic automatically collects from you in so-called server log files:

  • IP address
  • Browser information
  • Default language setting
  • Date and time of web access

WooCommerce also sets cookies in your browser and uses technologies such as pixel tags (web beacons), for example to clearly identify you as a user and to be able to offer interest-related advertising. WooCommerce uses a number of different cookies that are set depending on the user action. This means that if you put a product in the shopping cart, for example, a cookie is set so that the product remains in the shopping cart when you leave our website and come back at a later date.

Here we show you an exemplary list of possible cookies that can be set by WooCommerce:

Name: woocommerce_items_in_cart
Value: 1
Purpose: The cookie helps WooCommerce to determine when the content in the shopping cart changes.

Purpose: This cookie contains a unique identifier for you so that the shopping cart data can also be found in the database.
Expiry date: after 2 days

How long and where is the data stored?

Unless there is a legal obligation to store data for a longer period of time, WooCommerce will delete the data when it is no longer needed for its own purposes for which it was saved. For example, server log files that contain technical data on your browser and your IP address are deleted after about 30 days. Until then, Automattic uses the data to analyze the traffic on its own websites (for example all WordPress sites) and to fix possible problems. The data is stored on Automattic’s American servers.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

What is an “instant transfer”?

The SofortĂĽberweisung is an online payment system that enables you to place an order via online banking. The payment processing is carried out by Sofort GmbH and we immediately receive information about the payment made. This method can be used by any user who has an active online banking account with a PIN and TAN. Only a few banks still do not support this payment method.

Why do we use “SofortĂĽberweisung” on our website?

Our goal with our website and our integrated online shop is to offer you the best possible service. In addition to the overall experience on the website and our offers, this also includes smooth, fast and secure payment processing for your orders. To ensure this, we use “SofortĂĽberweisung” as a payment system.

Which data is saved by “SofortĂĽberweisung”?

If you make an immediate transfer via the Sofort / Klarna service, data such as name, account number, bank code, subject, amount and date will be saved on the company’s servers. We also receive this information via the payment confirmation.

As part of the account coverage check, Sofort GmbH checks whether your account balance and overdraft line cover the payment amount. In some cases, a check is also carried out to determine whether immediate transfers have been made successfully in the last 30 days. Furthermore, your user identification (such as the user number or contract number) is collected and stored in abbreviated (“hashed”) form and your IP address. BIC and IBAN are also saved for SEPA transfers.

According to the company, no other personal data (such as account balances, sales data, credit limits, account lists, mobile phone numbers, authentication certificates, security codes or PIN / TAN) will be collected, stored or passed on to third parties.
