Definitions
In principle, our privacy policy should be simple and understandable for everyone. For this reason, our privacy policy generally uses the official terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The official definitions are explained in Art. 4 GDPR.

Data processing by our website

When you visit our website, it is technically necessary that data is transmitted to our web server via your internet browser. The following data is recorded during a running connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:

> Visited domain

> The date and time of the request

> Page from which the file was requested

> Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)

> The web browser, system language, operating system and device type used

> IP address of the requesting computer

> The amount of data transferred

We collect the listed data to ensure a smooth connection to the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website. In addition, the log file serves the purpose of evaluating system security and stability, as well as providing administrative functions. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data or log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

For reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attempts to attack our web server, we may temporarily store this data. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is made anonymous by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user. This data is not evaluated in anonymous form except for statistical purposes. This data is not combined with data from other data sources.

Cookies

Our website uses so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are either temporarily stored on your end device for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies). Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them yourself or an automatic solution is provided by your web browser.

Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping basket function or language settings). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or display advertising.

Technically necessary cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized presentation of our services. Other cookies are only stored with your consent on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. This consent can be withdrawn at any time for the future. The legal basis may also result from Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR if the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the data subject.

Insofar as cookies are used for analysis purposes, we will inform you of this separately within the framework of this privacy policy and obtain your consent.

You can set your browser to

> be informed about the setting of cookies

> only allow cookies in individual cases

> exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally,

> activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed.

Most browsers also offer a so-called "do-not-track function". When this feature is enabled, the browser tells ad networks, websites, and applications that you do not want to be "tracked" for behavioral advertising and the like.
