For the integration and presentation of video content, our website uses plugins from YouTube. The provider of the video portal is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When a page with an integrated YouTube plugin is accessed, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells YouTube which of our pages you have accessed.
YouTube can assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile if you are logged into your YouTube account. By logging out beforehand, you have the option of preventing this.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Some cookies are “session cookies.” Such cookies are deleted automatically at the end of your browser session. On the other hand, other cookies remain on your device until you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us to recognise you when you return to our website.
With a modern web browser, you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured to delete cookies by themselves when you close the program. Disabling cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.
The setting of cookies that are necessary for the exercise of electronic communication processes or the provision of certain functions desired by you (e.B. shopping cart) is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and smooth provision of our services. If other cookies are set (e.B. for analysis functions), they will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.
Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of the web analysis service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses “cookies.” These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device and enable an analysis of website use. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. The server location is usually the USA.
Google Analytics cookies are set on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise our website and, if necessary, advertising.
We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymization function. It guarantees that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission to the USA. There may be exceptional cases in which Google transmits the full IP address to a server in the USA and shortens it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage. There is no merging of the IP address transmitted by Google Analytics with other Google data.
The setting of cookies by your web browser can be prevented. However, some functions of our website may be restricted as a result. You can also prevent the collection of data relating to your use of the website, including your IP address, including subsequent processing by Google. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plug-in accessible via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the collection of your data on future visits to our website: Disable Google Analytics.
In order to fully comply with the statutory data protection requirements, we have concluded a contract with Google for order processing.
Demographic characteristics of Google Analytics
Our website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. It can be used to create reports that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as from visitor data from third-party providers. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time. This is possible via the ad settings in your Google Account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the section “Objection to data collection”.
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
Our website uses Google AdWords. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.
AdWords is an online advertising program. As part of the online advertising program, we work with conversion tracking. After clicking on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. Google AdWords cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. The cookie allows Google and we to recognize that you have clicked on an ad and have been redirected to our website.
Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies are not traceable via websites of AdWords customers. Conversion cookies are used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. Adwords customers learn how many users clicked on their ad and were redirected to pages with conversion tracking tags. However, AdWords customers do not receive any information that enables personal identification of users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to its use. Here, the conversion cookie must be deactivated in the user settings of the browser. Thus, there is no inclusion in the conversion tracking statistics.
The storage of “conversion cookies” takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As a website operator, we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise our website and advertising.
With a modern web browser, you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Disabling cookies may result in limited functionality of our website.
