Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer system in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser. If you call up a website, a cookie can be stored on your operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters that enables the browser to be uniquely identified when you return to the website.Differentiation possibilities:
        Firstly, the distinction between first-party and third-party cookies, depending on where a cookie originates: First-party cookies are cookies that are set and retrieved by the operator of the website as the person responsible for processing or by a processor commissioned by the operator. Third party cookies are cookies that are set and retrieved by data controllers other than the website operator who are not acting as processors on behalf of the website operator. In addition, a distinction can be made between transient and persistent cookies, depending on their validity period:Transient cookies (session cookies) are cookies that are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies are cookies that remain stored on your terminal device for a certain period of time after you close your browser.

        In addition, a distinction can be made between cookies that do not require consent and those that do not:

        Depending on their function and purpose, the use of certain cookies may require the user’s consent. In this respect, cookies can be distinguished according to whether the user’s consent is required for their use.

      3. Your consent is granted by means of a so-called “cookie banner”:
        When you call up our website, we display a so-called “cookie banner”. In our cookie banner, you can click on the “Accept” button to declare your consent to the use of all cookies on this website that require your consent. Without such consent, the cookies requiring consent will not be activated. By clicking the “Reject” button, you can also completely reject the use of cookies requiring consent.

In the cookie dashboard you can make an individual selection of cookies and adjust them at a later point in time. We store your cookie settings in the form of a cookie on your device in order to determine whether you have already made cookie settings when you return to the website.Cookies required for the functioning of the website cannot be deactivated via the cookie management function of this website. However, you can deactivate these cookies generally in your browser at any time. Different browsers offer different ways to configure the cookie settings in the browser. You can find more detailed information on this subject at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/ge/cookies-verwalten. We would like to point out, however, that some functions of the website may not function or may no longer function properly if you deactivate cookies in your browser.
      4. Individual Cookies
        1. Google Analytics (statistics cookie)If you have given your consent, we use the web analysis tool Google Analytics on our website. With the help of Google Analytics, we can investigate the user behavior of visitors to our website in pseudonymized and anonymous form.
          You can deactivate the data processing by Google Analytics at any time in our “cookie dashboard”. Alternatively, you can install a browser plug-in from Google which prevents the collection of data by Google Analytics: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. Alternatively, you can prohibit the storage of cookies in your browser settings.

          1. The purpose of the data processing is to increase the efficiency of our use of resources for our web offer and the satisfaction of our visitors by (usage-based) optimization of our web offer by measuring the usage of our web offer.
          2. The processed data are:
            1. Google Analytics HTTP data
              This is protocol data that is technically generated when the web analysis tool Google Analytics is used on the website via the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (Secure) (HTTP(S)): This includes IP address, type and version of your Internet browser, operating system used, the page called up, the page previously visited (referrer URL), date and time of access.
            2. Google Analytics end device data
              Device-related raw data (so-called “dimensions” and “measured values”), which are collected and analyzed by the web analysis tool Google Analytics when using our website: This includes, above all, information about the sources through which visitors reach our website, information about the location, the browser used and the end device used, information about the use of the website (in particular page views, frequency of access and length of stay on accessed pages) as well as information about the fulfilment of certain objectives (in particular transactions in the online store). The data is assigned to the client ID assigned to your terminal device. As a result, device-related usage profiles are created in which all device-related raw data are combined to form a client ID. The data that we collect using Google Analytics does not enable us to identify you personally (i.e. by your civil name). We also do not merge the device-related raw data and the resulting device-related usage profiles with data that directly identifies you personally without your consent.
            3. Google Analytics report data
              Data contained in aggregated segment- and device-related reports generated by the web analytics tool Google Analytics based on the analysis of the device-related raw data.Google Analytics provides us with four report categories: Target group (location, browser, devices used, and other device-related data), acquisition (sources through which visitors reach the website), behavior (information on how visitors access the content of the website, in particular the pages called up, visiting time, jump rate), conversions (information on pre-configured targets).
          3. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. lit. a) DSGVO (consent).
          4. The data is automatically provided by the user’s browser.
          5. Recipients of the data in the context of the order processing are Google Ireland Limited (Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland) and analysis and support service providers based in the EU.
          6. On this website, so-called IP anonymization is activated for the use of the web analysis tool Google Analytics. This means that the IP address transmitted by the browser for technical reasons is made anonymous by truncation (deletion of the last octet of the IPv4 address or the last 80 bits of the IPv6 address) before storage.
          7. The provision of data is not required by law or contract or necessary for the conclusion of a contract. There is no obligation of the person concerned to provide the data. In the event that the data is not made available, we cannot perform web analysis using Google Analytics.
          8. No automated decision making takes place.
    3. Further functions and offers of our website
      1. In addition to the purely informative use of our website, we offer various services which you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you will generally have to provide additional personal data which we use to provide the respective service and to which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.

You will receive more detailed information on this when you provide your personal data or in the description of the offer below.

You can tell whether a single page of our website is encrypted by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
    2. We also use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in accordance with technological developments.
