Data protection declaration
We have written this data protection declaration (version 10.03.2020-321160689) in order to explain to you in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 what information we collect, how we use data and what decision options you have as a visitor to this website.
Unfortunately, it is in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical, but we tried to describe the most important things as simply and clearly as possible.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data.
Below we explain what cookies are and why they are used so that you can better understand the following data protection declaration.
What exactly are cookies?
Whenever you surf the Internet, a browser will be used. Well-known browsers are for example Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. Most websites store small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.
Cookies store certain user data about you, such as language or personal page settings. When you visit our site again, your browser transmits the “user-related” information back to our site. Thanks to cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you your usual standard-setting. In some browsers, each cookie has its own file; in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file.
There are both first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly by our website, third-party cookies are created by partner websites (e.g. Google Analytics). Each cookie is to be assessed individually, since each cookie stores different data. The expiration time of a cookie also varies from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other “pests”. Cookies also cannot access information from your PC.
For example, cookie data can look like this:
- Name: _ga
- Expiry time: 2 years
- Use: Differentiation of website visitors
- Example value: GA1.2.1326744211.152321160689
A browser should support the following minimum sizes:
- A cookie should be able to contain at least 4096 bytes
- It should be possible to save at least 50 cookies per domain
- It should be possible to save a total of at least 3000 cookies
What types of cookies are there?
The question of which cookies we use in particular depends on the services used and is clarified in the following sections of the data protection declaration. At this point we would like to briefly address the different types of HTTP cookies.
There are 4 types of cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary to ensure basic functions of the website. For example, these cookies are needed if a user places a product in the shopping cart, then surfs on other pages and only later checks out. These cookies ensure the shopping cart is not deleted, even if the user closes his browser window.
These cookies collect information about user behavior and whether the user receives any error messages. These cookies are also used to measure the loading time and behavior of the website in different browsers.
These cookies improve user-friendliness. For example, entered locations, font sizes or form data are saved.
These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They serve to deliver customized advertising to the user. This can be very practical, but it can also be very annoying.
When you visit a website for the first time, you are usually asked which of these types of cookies you want to allow. And of course, this decision is also saved in a cookie.
How can I delete cookies?
If you want to find out which cookies have been saved in your browser, if you want to change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:
Chrome: Clear, enable, and manage cookies in Chrome
Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari
Firefox: Clear cookies and site data in Firefox
Internet Explorer: delete and manage cookies
Microsoft Edge: delete and manage cookies
If you generally do not want cookies, you can set up your browser so that he always informs you when a cookie should be set. For each individual cookie, you can decide whether you want to allow the cookie or not. The procedure differs depending on the browser. It is best to search for the instructions in Google with the search terms “Delete cookies Chrome” or “Deactivate cookies Chrome” in the case of a Chrome browser or exchange the word “Chrome” for the name of your browser, e.g. Edge, Firefox, Safari off.
