4. Cookies

We use coo­kies on our web­site. These are small files auto­ma­ti­cal­ly crea­ted by your brow­ser that are saved on your end device (lap­top, tablet, smart­pho­ne etc.) when you visit our web­site. Cookies do not cau­se any dama­ge to your end device, neit­her do they trans­mit viru­ses, tro­jans or any other mal­wa­re.

Information spe­ci­fi­cal­ly rele­vant to the end device used is filed in the coo­kie; howe­ver, this does not mean that we can direc­t­ly iden­ti­fy you.

Cookies ser­ve to make using our web­site easier for you. For instan­ce, we use so-cal­led ses­si­on coo­kies to reco­gnise that you have visi­ted indi­vi­du­al pages of our web­site. These are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted once you lea­ve our web­site.

We also use tem­pora­ry coo­kies to opti­mi­se user fri­end­li­ness; the­se are saved on your hard dri­ve for a cer­tain peri­od. If you visit this web­site again to use our ser­vices, it auto­ma­ti­cal­ly reco­gnises that you have alrea­dy visi­ted us and what input and set­tings you have made so that you do not have to enter this infor­ma­ti­on again.

We also use coo­kies to record the use of our web­site for sta­tis­ti­cal ana­ly­sis pur­po­ses and for opti­mi­sing our offer for you (see sec­tion 5). These coo­kies allow us to reco­gnise that you have alrea­dy visi­ted us when you return to our web­site. These coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted after a defi­ned peri­od.

The data pro­ces­sed by coo­kies are necessa­ry for the named pur­po­ses to safe­guard our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests and tho­se of third par­ties pur­suant to Art. 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Most brow­sers accept coo­kies auto­ma­ti­cal­ly. However, you can con­fi­gu­re your brow­ser so that no coo­kies are saved on your com­pu­ter or that a text always appears befo­re a new coo­kie is crea­ted. Please bear in mind that the deac­tiva­ti­on of all coo­kies may mean that you can­not use all the func­tions of our web­site.

You are not obli­ged to pro­vi­de this data, howe­ver it may not be pos­si­ble to call up or dis­play our web­sites as requi­red, if you do not pro­vi­de this data.

5. ANALYIS Tools

a) Tracking tools

The tracking mea­su­res listed below that we use are car­ri­ed out based on Art. 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We use tracking mea­su­res to ensu­re the needs-based design and con­ti­nuous opti­mi­sa­ti­on of our web­site. We also use tracking mea­su­res to record the use of our web­site for sta­tis­ti­cal ana­ly­sis pur­po­ses and for opti­mi­sing our offer for you. The respec­tive data pro­ces­sing pur­po­ses and data cate­go­ries are sta­ted in the cor­re­spon­ding tracking tools.

i) Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web ana­ly­sis ser­vice of the Google Inc. ( (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; her­einaf­ter ‘Google’) for the needs-based design and con­ti­nuous opti­mi­sa­ti­on of our web­site.

When you call up our web­site, infor­ma­ti­on about the use of the web­site, inclu­ding your IP address, is sent to the Google-Server in the USA whe­re it is saved.

In this con­nec­tion, pseud­ony­mi­sed user pro­files are crea­ted and coo­kies (see below sec­tion 4) are used. The infor­ma­ti­on gene­ra­ted by the coo­kie about your use of the web­site, such as:

  • brow­ser type/version
  • ope­ra­ting sys­tem used
  • refer­rer URL (the web­site pre­vious­ly visi­ted)
  • host name of the acces­sing com­pu­ter (IP address)
  • time of the ser­ver que­ry

is sent to the Google-Server in the USA whe­re it is saved. The infor­ma­ti­on is used to ana­ly­se the use of the web­site to com­pi­le reports about web activi­ties and to pro­vi­de other ser­vices con­nec­ted to the use of the web­site and the Internet for the pur­po­ses of mar­ket rese­arch and needs-based design of this web­site. This infor­ma­ti­on is also trans­fer­red to third par­ties, if this is pre­scri­bed by law or if the third par­ty is con­trac­ted to pro­cess this data.

IP anonymisation

We activa­ted the IP anony­mi­sa­ti­on func­tion on our web­site. This means that Google trun­ca­tes your IP address wit­hin the mem­ber sta­tes of the European Union or in other sta­tes par­ty to the Agreement on the European Economic Area befo­re sen­ding it to the USA. The ent­i­re IP address is only sent to a Google ser­ver in USA in excep­tio­nal cases whe­re it is then trun­ca­ted. Google will use this infor­ma­ti­on on behalf of the ope­ra­tor of this web­site to ana­ly­se your use of the web­site, to com­pi­le reports on web­site activi­ty and to pro­vi­de other ser­vices to the web­site ope­ra­tor asso­cia­ted with web­site usa­ge and inter­net usa­ge. Google Analytics will not asso­cia­te your IP address sent by your brow­ser with any other data held by Google.

Prevention of processing

You can pre­vent your data being pro­ces­sed when you call up our web­site.

You can pre­vent the instal­la­ti­on of the coo­kies with a cor­re­spon­ding set­ting in the brow­ser soft­ware. We would like to point out that in this case it may not be pos­si­ble to use all the func­tions of this web­site.

You can also pre­vent the record­ing of data gene­ra­ted by the coo­kie and data rela­ting to the use of the web­site (incl. your IP address) and the pro­ces­sing of this data by Google by down­loa­ding and instal­ling a brow­ser add-on (

As an alter­na­ti­ve to the brow­ser add-on, in par­ti­cu­lar when brow­sing on mobi­le end devices, you can also click this link to pre­vent data being recor­ded by Google Analytics. An opt-out coo­kie is set that pre­vents the future record­ing of your data when you visit this web­site. The opt-out coo­kie only app­lies in this brow­ser and only for our web­site, and is filed on your device. If you dele­te the­se coo­kies in this brow­ser, you will need to set the opt-out coo­kie again.

You will find fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on about data pro­tec­tion in con­nec­tion with Google Analytics in the Google Analytics help sec­tion (

Object to collation of data

You can pre­vent Google Analytics from record­ing your data by cli­cking on the fol­lo­wing link. An opt-out coo­kie is set to pre­vent your data being recor­ded when you visit this web­site again: deac­tiva­te Google Analytics.

You will find more infor­ma­ti­on about how user data is hand­led by Google Analytics in Google’s pri­va­cy state­ment:

Order data processing

We have a con­tract with Google about pro­ces­sing the order data and we imple­ment in full the strict spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons of the German data pro­tec­tion aut­ho­ri­ties when using Google Analytics.

Demographic fea­tures of Google Analytics

This web­site uses the ‘demo­gra­phic fea­tures’ func­tion of Google Analytics. This means that reports can be com­pi­led that make state­ments about the age, gen­der and inte­rests of the web­site visi­tors. These data come from inte­rest-rela­ted adver­ti­sing by Google and from visi­tor data of third-par­ty sup­pliers, and can­not be assi­gned to a spe­ci­fic per­son. You can deac­tiva­te the func­tion at any time via the dis­play set­tings in your Google account or gene­ral­ly pro­hi­bit your data being recor­ded by Google Analytics as out­lined in the sec­tion ‘Objection to data collec­tion’.

7. Google Web Fonts

This page is used for the uni­form pre­sen­ta­ti­on of fonts, so-cal­led Web Fonts, that is pro­vi­ded by Google. When a page is cal­led up, your brow­ser loads the requi­red Web Fonts in your brow­ser cache to dis­play texts and fonts cor­rec­t­ly.

To this end, your brow­ser needs to make a con­nec­tion to the Google ser­vers. This means that Google would know that your IP address was cal­led up from our web­site. Also, infor­ma­ti­on about the use of the web­site, inclu­ding your IP address, is sent to the Google ser­ver in the USA whe­re it is saved.

Google Web Fonts is used to pre­sent our online offers in a uni­form or appe­aling way. This rep­res­ents a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest wit­hin the mea­ning of Art. 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

If your brow­ser does not sup­port Web Fonts, a stan­dard font is used by your com­pu­ter.

For more infor­ma­ti­on about Google Web Fonts, plea­se refer to and Google’s pri­va­cy poli­cy:“
