8.    Use of cookies
When you use our website, cookies are placed on your computer. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your hard drive by the browser you are using and which provide certain information to the party placing the cookie. Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They are used to make Internet browsing more user-friendly and more efficient as a whole.

This website uses the following types of cookies, the extent and functions of which are described below:

8.1.    Session cookies
These cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. In particular, these include session cookies that store a so-called session ID, through which various requests by your browser are allocated to the joint session. This enables your computer to be recognised again when revisiting our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log off or close the browser.

8.2.    Persistent cookies
These cookies are automatically deleted after a predetermined period that may vary according to the individual cookie. You can delete cookies at any time using your browser security settings.

8.3.    Flash cookies
The flash cookies used are not registered by your browser, but by your flash plug-in. We also use HTML5 storage objects, which are placed on your device. These objects store the requisite data independently of your chosen browser and do not have an automatic expiry date. To avoid the use of flash cookies you will need to install a commensurate add-on, such as 'Better Privacy' for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or the Adobe Flash killer cookie for Google Chrome. You can prevent the use of HTML5 storage objects by using the private mode in your browser. Moreover, we also recommend regular manual deletion of your cookies and browser history.

8.4.    Prevention of cookies
You can configure your browser settings according to preference and, for example, reject acceptance of third- party cookies or all cookies. Please note that this may mean you are unable to use all the functions of this website.

8.5.    Legal basis and retention period
The legal basis for possible processing of personal data and the retention periods for such vary and are described in the following text.

9.    Website analysis
We use a variety of services specified in the following text for the purpose of analysing and optimising our website. This allows us to analyse, for example, how many users visit our site, what information is most frequently retrieved and how users discovered our website. Amongst other things, we collect data on the last webpage that the data subject visited before landing on a specific webpage (the so-called referrer) as well as which sub-pages of the webpage were accessed and how often and the length of time a given sub-page was observed. This enables us to improve our website and make it more user-friendly. The data consequently collected is not used to identify individual users and is anonymously or, as a minimum, pseudonymously collected. The legal basis for such is provided under Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

9.1.    Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA). The use encompasses the operating mode Universal Analytics. This facilitates the assignment of data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and consequently analysis of a user's activities across devices.

Google Analytics uses 'cookies' to enable analysis of your website usage. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website will generally be forwarded to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Within member states of the European Union or other states that are party to the European Economic Area Agreement, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website Google will first truncate your IP address. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be passed to and truncated by Google on a server in the USA. The IP address sent from your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, create reports on website activity and provide additional services associated with use of the website and the Internet to the website operator. These purposes also define our legitimate interest in the data processing. The commensurate legal basis for using Google Analytics is provided under S. 15 (3) German Telemedia Act (TMG) and Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Data sent by us and linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g. user IDs) or advertising identifiers are automatically deleted 50 months after the most recent visit. Data that has exceeded the retention period is automatically deleted once a month. Further information on terms of    use    and    data    privacy    is    available    at    https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html    and https://policies.google.com/?hl=en

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, please be aware that this may mean you are unable to use the full functionality of the website. You can also prevent the collection and processing by Google of data generated by the cookie regarding your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when visiting this website. To prevent collection by Universal Analytics across multiple devices, you will need to disable the cookies in your browser.

9.2.    Google reCAPTCHA
To ensure sufficient data security when transferring forms, in certain cases we use the reCAPTCHA service from Google Inc. This is used primarily to distinguish whether the data is being entered by a human or through misuse by a bot or automated process. The service includes sending to Google the IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service. Accordingly, the divergent data protection provisions of Google Inc. apply. For more information on the Google Inc. privacy policy go to: https://www.google.de/intl/en/privacy or https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.


10.    Transfer of data
In principle, no transfer of your data to third parties is undertaken unless we have a statutory obligation to do so, the forwarding of such data is necessary for contract initiation and performance of the contractual relationship or you have expressly provided advance consent for the forwarding of your data.

External service providers and partner companies, for example online payment providers or shipping companies commissioned with delivery, will only be provided with your data where the provision of such data is necessary to process your order. In such cases, the scope of data transferred will be kept to the minimum required. Where our service providers come into contact with your personal data, within the scope of order processing in accordance with Art 28 GDPR we ensure that the commensurate providers likewise comply with the pertinent provisions of data protection law. Please also refer to the respective data privacy statements of the providers in question. Responsibility for the content of any given third party service lies solely with the respective service provider, whereby we check the compliance of such services with legal requirements to a reasonably acceptable extent.

As a globally active company with subsidiaries around the world we or assigned service providers process your data outside of the EU/EEA. By doing so we ensure that a data protection level comparable with standards within the EU is achieved on the basis of EU standard contracts or an adequacy decision such as the EU Privacy Shield.

11.    Data protection
We have comprehensive technical and operational security measures in place to protect your data against unintentional or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security processes are regularly reviewed and updated in line with technological advances.
