The data records stored during this process contain the following data stored until their automatic deletion: access date and time, name of the page accessed, IP address of the requesting device, referrer URL (URL from which our service has been accessed by you), amount of transferred data, loading time, as well as product and version information of the browser which has been used in each case and the name of your access provider. The legal basis for the processing of the IP address is Article 6 para. 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest results from

  • Ensuring a smooth connection,
  • Guaranteeing a comfortable use of our Services,
  • Evaluating the security and stability of the system.

A direct conclusion on your identity is not possible on the basis of the information and will not be drawn by us. The information will be stored and automatically deleted after the achievement of the aforementioned purposes. The standard deletion periods depend on the criterion related to necessity.

3.1.2. Cookies, Tracking, Social Media Plug-Ins

On various pages we use cookies or similar technologies to make the visit to our Services attractive and to enable the use of certain functions as well as to record the use of our Services statistically. Cookies are small text files which are automatically created by your browser and stored on your respective device (laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar) during your visit and/or use of our Services. Cookies do not cause any damage to your device, and do not contain viruses, trojans, or other malware. The information stored in the cookie is related to the specific terminal device used. However, this does not mean that we can obtain direct knowledge of your identity and/or draw conclusions about your person. The majority of the used cookies (the so-called session cookies) will be deleted at the termination of the browser session. These cookies put us into the position to offer e.g. the cross-page shopping cart display where you can see the number of items currently included in your shopping cart and the amount of the current purchase value. Other cookies (the so-called permanent or session-spanning cookies) remain on your end device by putting us into the position to recognize your end device during your next visit. Especially this kind of cookies serves to make our offer user-friendly, more effective, and safer. Due to these technologies, you may, for example, receive information about our Services which is specifically tailored to your interests.

On the one hand, we use cookies and similar technologies on the basis of Article 6 para. 1 point f) GDPR (legitimate interest in the optimization of our service offers). Certain cookies and similar technologies are used exclusively on the basis of your consent (according to Article 6 para. 1 point a) GDPR). According to their purpose, we basically divide cookies and similar technologies into three categories:

Necessary Cookies and Technologies

This category of cookies or similar technologies are necessary for the functioning of our Services. This concerns, for example, cookies or similar technologies storing log-in information after the registration in our online store so that the user remains logged in to our online store even after switching to another page, or to cookies ensuring that a user-specific configuration of service features (selected language, etc.) will be maintained over sessions.

The legal basis for the use of these technologies is Article 6 para. 1 point a) GDPR.

If you do not allow these cookies or similar technologies, you will experience less relevant content/advertising tailored to your interests. The legal basis for the use of these technologies is Article 6 para. 1 point a) GDPR.

A processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution, or other body processing personal data on behalf of the data controller.

This enables us to target users with online advertising not only on our websites but also on the websites of our partners, who have already shown interest in our shop and our products. As a result of studies, we know that the insertion of personalised, interest-based advertising is more attractive for the internet user than advertising without such personal reference.

3.5.2. Google Marketing Platform

This website uses the online marketing tool Google Marketing Platform of the operator Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("GMP").

GMP uses cookies to serve ads relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from seeing one and the same ads more than once. Google uses a cookie ID to help identify which ads are being served on which browser, and to prevent them from being shown more than once.

In addition, GMP can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions relating to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees a GMP ad and later, using the same browser, visits the advertiser's website and makes a purchase from that website. According to Google, GMP cookies do not contain any personal information.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of these tools and therefore inform you as follows according to our state of knowledge: Through the GMP integration, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or that you have clicked on one of our advertisements. If you are registered with a Google service, Google will be able to assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or are not logged in, it will be possible that the provider will find out your IP address and save it. The GMP use can also result in a transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

The GMP use can also result in a transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA ( www.privacyshield.gov/list) .

Here you can find more information about the Google GMP privacy policy: www.google.de/policies/privacy/.

Any further data processing will only take place if you have consented to Google linking your web and app browsing history to your Google Account and using information from your Google Account to personalize ads viewed by you on the web.
