3.3 Cookies


We use so-called session cookies to optimize our website. A session cookie is a small text file sent by a server when you visit a website and saved on your hard drive on an intermediate basis. This file itself contains a so-called session ID that can be used to attribute different requests by your browser to the overall session. This allows us to recognize your computer once again when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser. They are used, for instance, to allow you to use the shopping cart function across multiple pages.

 

We also use a small number of persistent cookies (also small text files saved on your device); these remain on your device, and make it possible for us to recognize your browser during your next visit. These cookies are saved on your hard drive and deleted automatically after the specified time. They have a lifetime of 1 month to 10 years. This helps us to present our website in a more user-friendly, effective, and secure manner, and display information on the page which is specifically tailored to your interests, for instance.

The data is deleted after the end of the warranty periods and any statutory retention periods. Data that is linked to a user account (see below) will be retained in every case for as long as this account is managed.

 

The legal basis for processing this data is Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 b) GDPR, because this data is required for us to fulfill our contractual obligations towards you.

3.6. Newsletter


The data requested during the registration process is required to register for the newsletter. Registration for the newsletter is logged.

This is required so that a third party cannot register using your e-mail address. 

 

You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time, thereby unsubscribing from the newsletter.

We only process further personal data if you consent to this (Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 a) GDPR), or if we have a legitimate interest in processing your data (Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 f) GDPR). We have a legitimate interest, for instance, in answering your e-mail.

 

 

4. Google Analytics


We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are saved on your computer and that facilitate an analysis of your use of the website. The information provided by these cookies regarding the visitor’s use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

We also have a legitimate interest in doing so in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 f) GDPR.

Based on this function, Google shortens your IP address within a member state of the European Union, or in another contracting state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it will be shortened. Google will use this information at our request to evaluate your use of the website, in order to create reports regarding website activities, and perform additional services associated with the user's internet usage for us.

The IP addresses transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics are not associated with other data from Google. You can prohibit the storage of cookies by changing the settings in your browser software accordingly; we would, however, like to inform you that in this case you will not be able to use the full extent of all functions on our website.

 

You can, additionally, prevent the transmission of the data created by cookies and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google and Google’s processing of this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
