Processing of Personal Data

1. Log-Files

A log file is created in the course of an automatic logging of the processing computer system. This means that information about the mobile device you are using is stored as log files on a server.

In so doing, our web provider also logs:

  • Access to the web page: Date, time, frequency
  • How you came to be on the page (previous page, hyperlink, etc.)
  • Volume of the data sent
  • What browsers and what browser versions you use
  • Your anonymised IP address

These data are retrieved exclusively for the functionality, the statistical evaluation and the improvement of our range. According to current regulations, this data is collected only for the time you use our service. The statutory regulations concerning data erasure are complied with.

The recipient of the log files is the host operator of our website. We have concluded an order processing agreement with this operator.

The personal data collected in the log files are usually deleted after 8 weeks. Information is not normally passed on from the log files. They may only be passed on to the prosecution authorities in the event of suspected illegal activities on our website.

The legal basis for this data collection is Art. 6 I (f) of the GDPR.

2. Cookies

This website uses cookies. These are small text files that are saved on your end device. Cookies provide the opportunity to make the website easier to use and to save existing settings or details without these having to be entered again. This happens by means of a once-only cookie identifier that is assigned to your end device.

Different types of cookies are placed on our website. There is a difference, therefore, between cookies that are required for technical reasons and cookies of third-party providers. You can find further information on this in the detailed view of our cookie banner.

In order to prevent a general storage of cookies at any time, most current Internet browsers provide a corresponding setting configuration that makes it possible for no or only certain cookies are stored. It is also possible to set from what time cookies should be deleted or for cookies to be deleted immediately. Information on this is available on the help pages of your browser provider.

You have the fundamental right to decide on the storage of cookies, provided that these are not technically required cookies that are necessary for the functionality of the website.

Cookies Required for Technical Reasons

Cookies required for technical reasons are used to enable the functionality of our website and the provision of required page functions. Without these cookies the use of the website may be very limited or not possible at all.

In this category we use a plugin from Borlabs in order to save your settings in our cookie banner for our website.

The legal basis for the processing of cookies required for technical reasons is Art. 6, Sec. 1 (c) of the GDPR.

Cookies of Third-party Providers

In addition, we use cookies of third-party providers on our website. These are used for the preparation of the Google Maps service, further details in 3. Google Maps.

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time with future effect. The validity of your consent is not affected until the time of the notice of withdrawal.

The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6, Sec. 1 (a) of the GDPR.

3.  Google Maps

We give you the opportunity on our website to display the geographical location of our company.
For this purpose we use the Google Maps services provided by the supplier Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland – hereinafter: “Google”.

When a page with integrated content from Google Maps is called up, IP addresses are transferred to the server from Google. It cannot be excluded that these are also transferred to servers in the USA.

Google is certified according to the EU-US Privacy-Shield agreement, under which Google undertakes to abide by and comply with the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation. The certificate can be viewed under:

When the page is called up, cookies may also be saved on your computer. These cookies are only saved if you actively consent to this beforehand. Should you not give your consent for cookies to be saved, the service provided may not be able to provide the usual functionality.

The IP addresses are transferred and the cookies are saved for the purpose of ensuring the functionality of Google Maps. The transfer of the IP address is necessary in order for Google to be able to convey the location of our company. The cookies are saved in order to provide you with an individual map display, and to enable you to save settings and make further searches.

In order to avoid the automatic transfer of the IP address, we have installed a 2-click solution, to enable you to decide for yourself whether your IP address should be transferred to Google. The transfer of the IP address is required, however, in order for you to be able to use the service. Should you not agree with the transfer, we will not be able to make the service available for technical reasons.

You may object to the processing at any time. You may also delete the browser data and the cookie data from your browser.

Further information on how Google handles your personal data can be found in Google’s Data Protection Guidelines:

The legal basis for the processing of the IP address and storage of the cookies is Art. 6, Sec. (a) of the GDPR.

6. Google reCAPTCHA

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter referred to as “reCAPTCHA”) on this website. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to determine whether data entered on this website (e.g., information entered into a contact form) is being provided by a human user or by an automated program.

The data tracked during such analyses are forwarded to Google.

reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the background. Website visitors are not alerted that an analysis is underway.

Data are stored and analyzed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the protection of the operator’s websites against abusive automated spying and against SPAM. If a respective declaration of consent has been obtained, the data will be processed exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. Any such consent may be revoked at any time.
