Thank you for your interest in our Internet site. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. For this reason we would like to inform you about how we deal with your data.

Data Collection and Processing

It is in principle not necessary to provide personal data in order to use our online offer. Only anonymous access data without personal reference is stored, such as the name of your Internet provider, the page from which you accessed our site or the name of the requested file and the date such file is accessed. This data does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you as an individual and is only analyzed in order to improve our offer.

Personal data will only be collected if you voluntarily provide it to us. This would be in the course of the order process, in the opening of a customer account with us or in registering for our newsletter.

Use of Cookies

Our website uses cookies enable us to keep our Internet offer attractive. Cookies are little text files which are stored on your computer. At the end of your browser session, most of the cookies used by us are deleted from your hard drive ("session cookies"). "Permanent cookies" remain on your computer. This allows us to recognize you and detect your preferences on your next visit to our website. Our partner companies are not permitted to collect, process or use personal data through cookies on our website.

Our offer may also be used without cookies. You may deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser, limit the storage to certain websites or configure your browser to notify you in advance as soon as a cookie is stored. This makes it possible to restrict the functions and user-friendliness of our offer.

 

Security of Personal Data

We use SSL encryption in order to guarantee the confidentiality of communication. According to the current state of knowledge, the possible encryption of 128 bit is considered to be secure. All browsers of the new generation have this security level. Otherwise we would like to advise you to update your browser on your computer.

 

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google“). Google Analytics uses cookies, text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of the use of the website. The information generated by cookies about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website to prepare reports on the website activities for the website operator and to render additional services related to the use of the website and the Internet. Google will also transmit this information to third parties as necessary insofar as prescribed by law or if third parties process such data on behalf of Google. Google will under no circumstances connect your IP address to other data stored by Google. You may prevent the installation of cookies through a corresponding configuration of your browser software. However, we would like to point out that in such case you might not be able to use the full scope of all functions of this website. By using this website you agree to the processing of data collected about yourself by Google in the type and scope and for the purpose described above.

Irrespective of the preceding, you have the right at all times to object to the collection and storage of your data with effect for the future. We would like to point out that, in order to exclude direct personal references, IP addresses are only processed on this website in abridged form because we use Google Analytics with an "_anonymizelp()" extension.

 

Use of Facebook Social Plug-in

Our website uses social plug-ins ("Plug-ins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). Plug-ins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on a blue tile or a "thumbs up" sign) or are designated with the addition "Facebook social plug-in." The list and appearance of the Facebook social plug-ins can be viewed here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.

If a user accesses a website of this offer containing such a plug-in, the user's browser establishes a direct connection with Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Facebook to your browser directly and incorporated by Facebook to the website. The provider thus has no influence on the scope of the data collected by Facebook with the aid of this plug-in and thus informs its users according to its knowledge:

Through the incorporation of plug-ins, Facebook is informed when a user accesses the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can associate it with the user's Facebook account. When users interact with the plug-ins by clicking on the like button, for example, the information will be sent from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to discover and store its IP address. According to Facebook, only anonymous IP addresses are stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the collection of the data and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook and related rights and possible configurations to protect users' privacy can be found in the data protection specifications of Facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

If a user is a member of Facebook and does not want Facebook to collect data about him or her and link it to his or her user data stored with Facebook through this offer, he or she must log out of Facebook prior to accessing the Internet site.

It is also possible to block Facebook social plug-ins with add-ons for your browser, such as the "Facebook Blocker."
