Cookies

a) Session cookies/session cookies

We use so-called cookies with our Internet presence. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are placed and stored on your end device by the Internet browser you use. Through these cookies, certain information from you, such as your browser or location data or your IP address, is processed to an individual extent.

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 execution.

If the processing does not serve the purpose of contract initiation or contract implementation, our legitimate interest lies in the improvement of the functionality of our Internet presence. The legal basis is then Article 6(1). 1 lit. f) GDPR.

These session cookies are deleted when you close your Internet browser.

The steps and measures required for this also depend on the Flash Player you are actually using. If you have any questions, please also use the help function or documentation of your Flash Player or contact the manufacturer or user support.

If you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, however, this may mean that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

Linking social media via graphic or text link

We also advertise presences on the social networks listed below on our website. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents the access of a website that has a social media application from automatically establishing a connection to the respective server of the social network in order to display a graphic of the respective network itself. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic will the user be redirected to the service of the respective social network.

After the user has been forwarded, information about the user is collected by the respective network. It cannot be excluded that the data collected in this way will be processed in the USA.

This is initially data such as IP address, date, time and page visited. If the user is logged into his user account of the respective network, the network operator may assign the collected information of the specific visit of the user to the personal account of the user. If the user interacts via a “share” button of the respective network, this information can be stored in the user’s personal user account and, if necessary, published. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to his user account, he must log out before clicking on the graphic. It is also possible to configure the user account accordingly.

The following social networks are integrated into our site by linking:
