You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to third parties.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that data that you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the "https://" address line of your browser and by the lock symbol in the browser line.

These are: Page visited on our domain, date and time of the server request, browser type and browser version, operating system used, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer, IP address.

These data are not merged with other data sources. The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Personal data will only be transmitted to third parties if necessary within the framework of contract processing. For example, third parties may be payment service providers or logistics companies. A further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly agreed to it.

Google Analytics

Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. Provider of the web analytics 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 allow analysis of website usage. 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 DSGVO. 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.

IP anonymisation. We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymization function. It ensures that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the USA. There may be exceptions in which Google transfers the full IP address to a server in the United States and abbreviates it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Browser plugin. The setting of cookies by your web browser can be prevented. However, some functions of our website may be restricted as a result. You may also opt out of the collection of data about your website usage, including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plugin accessible via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Objection to data collection. You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent your information from being collected on future visits to our website: Disable Google Analytics.

Details on the handling of user data by Google Analytics can be found in Google's privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

Order processing. We have entered into an order processing agreement with Google in order to fully comply with legal data protection requirements.

Demographic characteristics of Google Analytics. Our website uses the function “demographic features” of Google Analytics. It can be used to create reports that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-related advertising by Google and visitor data from third parties. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function 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 under “Objection to data collection”.

The original policy (in German) was created using the data protection configurator of mein-datenschutzbeauftragter.de.
