Which cookies are stored on your computer?

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your client device and saved by your browser. They serve to make our services more user-friendly, effective and secure. We use both so-called temporary cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser ("session cookies"), as well as persistent (permanent) cookies.

You have the choice whether you want to allow the use of certain cookies. You can save your preferences in the browser settings. If you decide to make use of this option, it is possible that you will not be able to make full use of our services.

With regard to the use of cookies, a distinction must be made between absolutely necessary mandatory cookies and those that are used for broader purposes (collection of traffic data, advertising purposes).

Mandatory cookies when using the website

On our websites we make use of session cookies, which are mandatory for the use of our websites. These include cookies that enable us to recognize you while you are visiting the site in a single session.

Use of cookies to record user behaviour

The use of tracking cookies allows us to recognize users when they return to our website and thus to assign user events to an internally assigned reference number (pseudonym). This enables us to register recurring visits to our website and to analyse them coherently.

Specifically, we use the following tracking cookies:

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to analyse and statistically evaluate website usage. The data obtained from this is used to optimise our website and advertising measures. Google Analytics is a web analytics service operated and provided by Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; for Europe: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland).

Your data is processed on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. During your visit to the website, the following data, among others, is stored.

Visitor-related data IP address (in shortened form, so that no clear assignment is possible), origin (country and city), language, operating system, device (PC, tablet PC or smartphone), Browser and all add-ons used.

Traffic sources Source of origin of your visit (i.e. via which website or advertising medium you accessed us)

User behaviour Google processes website usage data on our behalf and is contractually committed to taking steps to ensure the confidentiality of the data processed. Google also processes this data for its own purposes (e.g. for profiling or linking to any Google accounts). The data about your website usage collected through "cookies" is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA for analysis and stored there.

Google Analytics stores cookies in your web browser for a period of two years since your last visit. These cookies contain a randomly generated user ID with which you can be recognised on future website visits.

The recorded data is stored together with a randomly generated user ID, which enables the evaluation of pseudonymous user profiles. We automatically delete this user-related data after 26 months.

IP anonymisation (masking function "anonymizeIP") takes effect on this website. The IP address of the user is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and only transmitted anonymously. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

Revocation/objection You can prevent this processing by taking the following measures:

It is possible to set your browser so no "cookies" are stored. However, this may result in our website not being fully functional. You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by cookies and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

As an American company, Google is subject to the CLOUD Act. This allows American government authorities to gain access to the data stored by Google. We have no influence on this.

Further information on data protection at Google can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy and specifically on the handling of user data by Google Analytics at: support.google.com/analytics/answer

Google Maps

We embed a Google Maps image to mark our location so that data processing is not carried out by Google Maps.

Our newsletter

By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the procedures described. We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing advertising information (hereinafter "newsletter") only with your consent or on the basis of a legal permission. To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your name and e-mail address. The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure: After registration you will receive an e-mail from us asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with foreign e-mail addresses. The newsletter registrations are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Changes to your data stored by the shipping service provider are also logged.

The dispatch of the newsletter is based on the consent of the recipient in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, Art. 7 DSGVO. We are interested in the use of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests as well as meeting the expectations of the users and also allows us to prove consent.

How to unsubscribe from the newsletter?

You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. We may store the unsubscribed e-mail addresses for up to three years on the basis of our legitimate interests before we delete them in order to be able to prove a previously given consent. The processing of this data is limited to the purpose of a possible defence against claims. An individual request for deletion is possible at any time, provided that the former existence of a consent is confirmed at the same time.

Our newsletter service provider

Newsletters are sent by means of the mailing service "MailChimp", an offer from Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The privacy policy of the mail service provider can be viewed here: mailchimp.com/legal/privacy

Your data is processed on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The service provider may use the recipients' data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without attribution to a user, to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimise the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for statistical purposes. However, it does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass the data on to third parties.

As an American company, Rocket Science Group LLC is subject to the CLOUD Act. This allows American government authorities to gain access to the data stored by Google. We don't have any influence on this.

Do we pass on your data to third parties?

If, in the course of our processing, we disclose data to other persons and companies (contract processors or third parties), transfer it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only take place on the basis of your consent (e.g. newsletter), a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. web hosting).

If we commission third parties to process data, this is done on the basis of an "order processing contract" in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO.

You can object to the future processing of data concerning you at any time in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO. The objection may be made in particular against processing for the purposes of direct advertising and data analysis. Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the balancing of interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is in particular not necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you, which is described by us in each case in the description of the functions.
