    2. We use "Session Cookies" that are stored for the duration of the current visit to our Website (for example, to enable the storage of your login status or the shopping cart function and thus the use of our Website at all). A randomly generated unique identification number is stored in a Session Cookie, a so-called “Session ID”. In addition, a cookie contains information about its origin and the retention period. These Session Cookies cannot save any other data. Session cookies will be deleted if you have finished using our Website and you have e.g. logged out from our Website or closed the browser window which showed our Website.

    5. You may opt out for the use of cookies for distance measurement and promotional purposes through the Network Advertising Initiative's opt-out page (http://optout.networkadvertising.org/) and the US Website (http://www.aboutads.info/choices) or the European Website (http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/).
  8. Google Analytics

    1. Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our Website within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR), we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland, ("Google"). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the Website by the Users are usually transferred to Google’s server within the USA where these data are stored.
    2. Google is certified according to the US-EU Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European Privacy Legislation (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
    3. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our Website, to compile reports on the activities within this Website and to provide us with further services related to the use of this Website and the internet usage of our Website. In this case, pseudonymous user profiles may be created.
    4. We use Google Analytics to display advertisements posted within Google and its affiliate advertising services, only to Users who have shown an interest in our Website or certain features (such as interests in specific topics or products that have been visited by them).
    5. We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the Users will be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the EEA. Only in exceptional cases the unshortened IP address will be sent to a Google server in the USA and will be shortened there.
    6. The IP address submitted by the User's browser will not be merged with other data provided by Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly. Users may also prevent of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the Website and the processing of such data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available on the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
    7. For more information about Google's data usage, hiring and opt-out options, please visit Google's Websites: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/partners ("How Google uses data when you use our partners' sites or apps"), https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=en ("Use of data for promotional purposes"), https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated ("Managing information that Google uses, to show you advertising").
  9. Google Re-/Marketing Services

    1. Based on our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR we use marketing and remarketing Services ("Google Marketing Services") of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland, ("Google").
    2. Google is certified under the US-EU Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European Privacy Legislation (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
    3. Google Marketing Services allows us to target advertisements for and on our Website so that we present ads to Users which potentially match with their interests. Showing ads for products a User who has been interested in on other Websites is called remarketing. For these purposes a code will be executed by Google and a so-called (re)-marketing tag (invisible graphics or code, also called "Web Beacons") got implemented into the Website. With the help of the Web Beacons, the User is provided with an individual cookie, which means a small file is saved on his device (instead of cookies, comparable technologies can also be used). The cookies can be set by different domains, including google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com. This file notes which websites the User visited, what content he is interested in and which offers he has clicked on, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring Websites, visit time and other information on the use of the Website. Also, the IP address of the Users is recorded. This IP address will not be merged with data of the User within other offers from Google. The above information may also be linked with such information from other sources by Google. If a User visits other Websites, he can be provided with tailored ads according to his interests.
    4. The User’s data are processed pseudonymously in the context of the Google Marketing Services. That means Google stores and processes e.g. not the name or e-mail address of the Users but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous User profiles. From Google’s perspective, the ads are not managed and displayed to a specifically identified person, but to the cookie owner, regardless of who that cookie owner is. This does not apply if a User has explicitly allowed Google to process the data without the pseudonymization. The information collected about Users through Google Marketing Services is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the United States.
    5. Among the Google marketing services we use is i.a. the online advertising program "Google AdWords". In the case of Google AdWords, each advertiser receives a different "conversion cookie". Cookies can not be tracked through AdWords advertisers' websites. The information collected through the cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Advertisers will see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.
    6. We can engage third-party ads based on Google's DoubleClick marketing service. DoubleClick uses cookies that enable Google and its affiliate websites to serve ads based on users' visits to this site or other sites on the Internet.
    7. We can incorporate third-party ads based on the Google AdSense marketing service. AdSense uses cookies that enable Google and its affiliate sites to serve ads based on users' visits to this site or other sites on the Internet.
    8. We use Google's Marketing Services, include Google Tag Manager to integrate and manage the Google Analytics and Marketing services on our Website.
    9. For more information about Google's data usage for marketing purposes see the following overview: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads, Google's Privacy Policy available at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

  10. Newsletter

    1. With the following information, we will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, delivery and statistical evaluation procedures and your right to object. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the procedures described.
    2. We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter "Newsletter") only with the consent of the User or based on a legal permission once a week. Incidentally, our Newsletters contain information about our products, offers, promotions and our company.
    3. Registration for our Newsletter is done with a so-called double-opt-in procedure. After registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary to preclude that anybody can register with external e-mail addresses. The registration for the Newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, changes to your data stored with the delivery service provider will be logged.
    4. The newsletter is distributed via "MailChimp", a newsletter shipping platform of Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The privacy policy of the shipping service provider can be viewed here: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/. The Rocket Science Group LLC is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European data protection standards (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TO6hAAG&status=Active).
    5. To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address. Optionally, we ask you to give a name in the newsletter for personal address.
    6. The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the shipping service provider's server when the newsletter is opened. This call will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval. This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters will be opened, when they will be opened and which links will be clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our endeavor nor that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
    7. The use of the shipping service provider, the implementation of statistical surveys and analyzes as well as logging of the registration process, are based on our legitimate interests in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We are interested in using a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves both our business interests and the expectations of our users.

DSGVO), we make use of content or services offered by third-party providers in order to provide their content and services (collectively referred to as "Content"). This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content.
