We use so-called cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are placed and stored on your end device by the Internet browser you use. These cookies are used to process certain information from you, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, on an individual basis.
This processing makes our website more user-friendly, effective and secure, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our website in different languages or the offer of a shopping basket function.
The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, insofar as these cookies process data for contract initiation or contract fulfilment.
If the processing does not serve to initiate or fulfil a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. The legal basis in this case is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
These session cookies are deleted when you close your Internet browser.
b) Third-party cookies
Please refer to the following information for details, in particular the purposes and legal basis for processing such third-party cookies.

If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support. In the case of so-called Flash cookies, however, processing cannot be prevented via the browser settings. Instead, you must change the settings of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the specific Flash player you are using.

However, if you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, this may mean that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.
For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable website, data is transmitted to us or to our web space provider by your Internet browser. With these so-called server log files, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you have switched to our Internet presence (referrer URL), the website(s) of our Internet presence that you visit, the date and time of the respective access and the IP address of the Internet connection from which our Internet presence is used are collected, among other things.
The data collected in this way is stored temporarily, but not together with other data about you.
This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website.
The data will be deleted after seven days at the latest, unless further storage is required for evidence purposes. Otherwise, the data is excluded from deletion in whole or in part until an incident has been finally clarified.
We use Google Analytics on our website. This is a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, hereinafter referred to as "Google".
The Google Analytics service is used to analyse the usage behaviour of our website. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our website.

The data collected in this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an analysis of the visit to our website and the usage activities there. This data can also be used to provide other services related to the use of our website and the use of the Internet.
Google states that it will not associate your IP address with any other data. Google also provides further data protection information for you at , for example on the options for preventing the use of data.
