4. Data collection on our website

Some of our web pages use coo­kies. Coo­kies do not harm your com­pu­ter and do not con­tain
any viru­ses. Coo­kies help make our web­site more user-friend­ly, effi­ci­ent, and secu­re.
Coo­kies are small text files that are stored on your com­pu­ter and saved by your brow­ser.
Most of the coo­kies we use are so-cal­led “ses­si­on coo­kies.” They are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted
after your visit. Other coo­kies remain in your device’s memo­ry until you dele­te them. The­se
coo­kies make it pos­si­ble to reco­gni­ze your brow­ser when you next visit the site.
You can con­fi­gu­re your brow­ser to inform you about the use of coo­kies so that you can
deci­de on a case-by-case basis whe­ther to accept or reject a coo­kie. Alter­na­tively, your
brow­ser can be con­fi­gu­red to auto­ma­ti­cal­ly accept coo­kies under cer­tain con­di­ti­ons or to
always reject them, or to auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­te coo­kies when clo­sing your brow­ser. Dis­ab­ling
coo­kies may limit the func­tio­n­a­li­ty of this web­site.
Coo­kies which are necessa­ry to allow elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons or to pro­vi­de cer­tain
func­tions you wish to use (such as the shop­ping cart) are stored pur­suant to Art. 6 para­graph
1, let­ter f of DSGVO. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the sto­rage of coo­kies
to ensu­re an opti­mi­zed ser­vice pro­vi­ded free of tech­ni­cal errors. If other coo­kies (such as
tho­se used to ana­ly­ze your sur­fing beha­vi­or) are also stored, they will be trea­ted sepa­r­ate­ly
in this pri­va­cy policy.

Ser­ver log files
The web­site pro­vi­der auto­ma­ti­cal­ly collects and stores infor­ma­ti­on that your brow­ser
auto­ma­ti­cal­ly trans­mits to us in “ser­ver log files”. The­se are:

Brow­ser type and brow­ser ver­si­on
Ope­ra­ting sys­tem used
Refer­rer URL
Host name of the acces­sing com­pu­ter
Time of the ser­ver request
IP address
The­se data will not be com­bi­ned with data from other sources.
The basis for data pro­ces­sing is Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, which allows the pro­ces­sing of data to
ful­fill a con­tract or for mea­su­res preli­mi­na­ry to a contract.

5. Plugins and tools

If you visit one of our pages fea­turing a You­Tube plugin, a con­nec­tion to the You­Tube ser­vers

If you’re log­ged in to your You­Tube account, You­Tube allows you to asso­cia­te your brow­sing
beha­vi­or direct­ly with your per­so­nal pro­fi­le. You can pre­vent this by log­ging out of you­rY­ou­Tube account.
You­Tube is used to help make our web­site appe­aling. This con­sti­tu­tes a jus­ti­fied inte­rest

Goog­le Web Fonts
For uni­form repre­sen­ta­ti­on of fonts, this page uses web fonts pro­vi­ded by Goog­le. When you
open a page, your brow­ser loads the requi­red web fonts into your brow­ser cache to dis­play
texts and fonts cor­rect­ly.
When you call up a page of our web­site that con­tains a social plugin, your brow­ser makes a
direct con­nec­tion with Goog­le ser­vers. Goog­le thus beco­mes awa­re that our web page was
acces­sed via your IP address. The use of Goog­le Web fonts is done in the inte­rest of a

uni­form and attrac­ti­ve pre­sen­ta­ti­on of our web­site. This con­sti­tu­tes a jus­ti­fied inte­rest
pur­suant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
If your brow­ser does not sup­port web fonts, a stan­dard font is used by your com­pu­ter.
