WHERE WE STORE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

Our servers are primarily hosted by Domain Factory, a hosting company based in Germany. However, the data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside Germany. It may also be processed by staff operating outside of Germany who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff maybe engaged in, among other things, the fulfillment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

DATA SECURITY

We have implemented technical measures designed to secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use, alteration and disclosure. All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers behind firewalls. Any payment transactions are encrypted using SSL technology. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Services. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the services.

The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.

USE OF COOKIES

We use third-party analytics services to understand how our Services are used in order to improve them. These services may be blocked with third-party browser plugins without affecting the functionality of our Services.

We make use of cookies on our site. These are small files that your browser creates automatically and that are stored on your terminal device (laptop, tablet, smart phone, etc.) when you visit our site. Cookies do not harm your terminal device; they contain no viruses, Trojans or other malware.

Information that in each case has to do with the specific terminal device deployed is stored in the cookie. This does not mean, however, that we thereby have direct knowledge of your identity.

The use of cookies serves, on the one hand, to make it easier for you to utilize our offer. To this end we deploy so-called session cookies to see if you have already visited individual pages of our website. These cookies are automatically deleted after you have left our site.

In addition to this, we also make use of temporary cookies, which are stored on your terminal device for a certain fixed period and serve to optimize user-friendliness. When you visit our site again in order to make use of our services it is automatically recognized that you have previously visited us, and which input and settings you then made use of, i.e. you need not enter these again.

We also employ cookies to statistically record and evaluate the use made of our website, and for purposes of optimizing of our offer for you. These cookies make it possible for us to automatically recognize, on a renewed visit to our site, that you have previously visited us. These cookies are automatically deleted, in each case, after a specified period.

The data processed by cookies is necessary for the specified purposes and for safeguarding our legitimate interests and those of third parties, in keeping with article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, letter f of DSGVO [GDPR].

Most browsers automatically accept cookies.

Google Analytics

For purposes of a needs-oriented design and continuous optimization of our pages we use Google Analytics, a web-analysis service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, MV, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter referred to as “Google”). In this connection, pseudonymized user profiles are created and cookies (see under point 4) are used. The information created by the cookie about your use of this website, such as

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

is transferred to a Google server in the USA and is stored there. The information is utilized to evaluate the use made of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to produce further services associated with the use made of the website and of the Internet, for purposes of market research and needs-oriented design of these Internet pages. Where appropriate, this information is also passed on to third parties, provided this is legally prescribed, or to the extent that third parties process this data on commission. In no case will your IP address be used in connection with other Google data.

You can prevent the installation of the cookies by adjusting the browser-software settings appropriately. In this case, however, we draw your attention to the fact that not all of the functions of this website may then be fully available.

You can also prevent the acquisition of the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google in that you download and install the browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

As an alternative to the browser add-on, particularly in cases of browsers on mobile terminal devices you can also prevent recording by Google Analytics in that you click this link. This sets an opt-out cookie that prevents future recording of your data during your visit to this website: The opt-out cookie applies only in this browser and only for our website. It is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

You can find further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics in the Google Analytics help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en).

On this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();”, to ensure that IP addresses are only recorded anonymized, to prevent direct person-specific allocation (so-called IP masking).

Facebook Custom Audiences And Facebook Marketing Services

Within our online offer use is made, on the basis of our legitimate interests in analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer and for this purpose the so-called “Facebook Pixel” of the social-network company Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are resident in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).

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

With the help of Facebook Pixels, Facebook is able to target the visitors to our online offer for the presentation of advertisements (so-called “Facebook ads”). Accordingly we make use of Facebook Pixels to limit the use of Facebook ads placed by us to Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer, or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interest in certain topics or products, as determined on the basis of the web pages visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called “custom audiences”). With the help of Facebook Pixels we would also like to ensure that our Facebook ads appeal to potentially interested users and do not pester them. With the help of Facebook Pixels we can furthermore anticipate the effectiveness of the Facebook advertisements for statistical and market-research purposes, in that we can see whether users, after clicking a Facebook advertisement on our website, are passed on (so-called “conversion”).

When you access our web pages Facebook Pixels is directly integrated by Facebook and can store a so-called cookie, i.e. a small file, on your device. When you subsequently log on with Facebook, or visit Facebook in logged-on status, the visit to our online offer is noted in your profile. The data collected on you is, for us, anonymous, i.e. it offers us no inferences to the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and could be used by Facebook and for one’s own market-research and advertising purposes. If we transmit data to Facebook for purposes of comparison, this is locally encrypted in the browser and is then sent to Facebook via a secured https connection. This is undertaken solely for the purpose of comparison with data similarly encrypted by Facebook.

With the use of Facebook Pixels we also use the additional function “extended comparison”. Here user data (such as telephone numbers, e-mail addresses and Facebook IDs) is transferred (encrypted) to Facebook for creation of target groups (“custom audiences” or “look-alike audiences”). For further information on “extended comparison”: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/611774685654668.

The processing of the data by Facebook is undertaken within the framework of Facebook’s data-usage guidelines. Accordingly, you can find general information on the presentation of Facebook ads in the Facebook data-usage guidelines: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. Special information and details about Facebook Pixels and its functioning can be found in the Facebook help area: https://www.facebook.com/business/help/651294705016616.

You can object to the recording and use of your data by Facebook Pixels for presentation of Facebook ads. To set which types of advertisements you will be shown within Facebook, you can call up the pages arranged by Facebook and follow the information given there on the settings of usage-based advertising: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. The settings are platform-independent, i.e. they are used for all devices, such as desk-top computers or mobile devices.

To prevent the recording of your data on our website by means of Facebook Pixels, please click the following link. Note: if you click the link an opt-out cookie will be stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser you must then click the link again. Furthermore, the opt-out applies only to the browser used by you and only within the web domain of ours in which the link was clicked.

You can also object to the use of cookies that are used for purposes of media-reach measurement and advertising, via the deactivation page of the network advertising initiative (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/) and additionally via the American website (http://www.aboutads.info/choices) or the European website (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/).
