Use of cookies

Cookies are text files that contain data from visited websites or domains and are stored by a browser on the user’s computer. A cookie is primarily used to store the information about a user during or after his visit to an online offer. The stored information may e.g. language settings on a web page, the login status, a shopping cart, or the location where a video was viewed. The term “cookies” also includes other technologies that perform the same functions as cookies (for example, when user information is stored using pseudonymous online identifiers, also referred to as “user IDs”).

The following cookie types and functions are distinguished:

  • Temporary cookies (also: session or session cookies): Temporary cookies are deleted at the latest after a user has left an online offer and closed their browser.
  • Persistent cookies: Persistent cookies are stored even after closing the browser. For example, the login status can be saved or preferred content displayed directly when the user revisits a website. Likewise, the interests of users used for range measurement or for marketing purposes may be stored in such a cookie.
  • First-party cookies: First-party cookies are set by us.
  • Third party cookies (also known as third party cookies): Third party cookies are mainly used by advertisers (known as third parties) to process user information.
  • Necessary (but essential or strictly necessary) cookies: On the one hand, cookies may be absolutely necessary for the operation of a website (for example, to save logins or other user input or for reasons of security).
  • Statistics, marketing and personalization cookies: In addition, cookies are usually also used in the context of range measurement and when the interests of a user or his behavior (eg viewing certain content, benefits of functions, etc.) on individual websites in one User profile will be saved. Such profiles serve to provide users with e.g. View content that matches your potential interests. This method is also referred to as “tracking,” that is, tracking the potential interests of users. As far as we use cookies or “tracking” technologies, we will inform you separately in our privacy policy or in the context of obtaining consent.

Information on legal bases: On which legal basis we process your personal data with the help of cookies, depends on whether we ask you for a consent. If this is the case and you consent to the use of cookies, the legal basis for the processing of your data is the informed consent. Otherwise, the data processed by means of cookies will be processed on the basis of our legitimate interests (for example, in the course of a business operation of our online offer and its improvement) or, if the use of cookies is required, in order to fulfill our contractual obligations.

General information on revocation and opposition (opt-out): Depending on whether the processing is based on a consent or legal permission, you have the option at any time to revoke your consent or to object to the processing of your data by cookie technologies (collectively referred to as “opt-out”). You may initially declare your disagreement through the settings of your browser, for example by disabling the use of cookies (which may also limit the functionality of our online offer). An objection to the use of cookies for online marketing purposes can also be explained by means of a variety of services, especially in the case of tracking, via the websites and become. In addition, you may receive further notice of objections in the context of the information on the service providers and cookies used.

Processing of cookie data on the basis of a consent: Before we process or process data within the scope of the use of cookies, we ask the users for an always revocable consent. Before consent has been given, cookies may be used that are necessary for the operation of our online offer. Their use is based on our interest and the interest of the users in the expected functionality of our online offer.

Provision of the online offer and web hosting

To provide our online offer safely and efficiently, we use the services of one or more web hosting providers whose servers (or servers managed by them) can access the online offer. For these purposes, we may use infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage and database services, as well as security and technical maintenance services.

The data processed in the provision of the hosting offer may include all information relating to the use and communication of the users of our online offer. This includes, on a regular basis, the IP address necessary to deliver the content of online content to browsers, and all submissions made within our online offer or web pages.

E-mail delivery and hosting: The webhosting services we use also include the sending, receiving and saving of e-mails. For these purposes the addresses of the recipients as well as sender as well as further information concerning the e-mail dispatch (for example the participating providers) as well as the contents of the respective e-mails are processed. The aforementioned data may also be processed for purposes of SPAM detection. We ask you to note that e-mails on the Internet are generally not encrypted. As a rule, e-mails are encrypted on the transport route, but (if no so-called end-to-end encryption method is used) not on the servers from which they are sent and received. We can therefore take no responsibility for the transmission of emails between the sender and the reception on our server.

  • Processed data types: content data (e.g., text input, photographs, videos), usage data (e.g., visited web pages, interest in content, access times), meta / communication data (e.g., device information, IP addresses).
  • Affected Persons: Users (e.g., website visitors, online service users).
  • Legal basis: legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) of the DSGVO).

Online marketing

We process personal data for online marketing purposes, which may include the marketing of advertising space or the presentation of advertising and other content (collectively referred to as “content”) based on the potential interests of users and the measurement of their effectiveness.

For these purposes, so-called user profiles are created and stored in a file (so-called “cookie”) or similar methods are used by means of which the information relevant to the presentation of the aforementioned contents to the user is stored. To this information can e.g. content viewed, websites visited, online networks used, as well as communication partners and technical information, such as the browser used, the computer system used and information on usage times. If users have consented to the collection of their location data, they can also be processed.

It also stores the IP addresses of the users. However, we use available IP masking techniques (i.e., pseudonymization by truncating the IP address) to protect users. In general, the online marketing process does not store user data (such as e-mail addresses or names) but pseudonyms. That is, we as well as the providers of online marketing methods do not know the actual identity of the users, but only the information stored in their profiles.

The information in the profiles is usually stored in the cookies or similar procedures. These cookies can later generally also on other websites that use the same online marketing method, read and analyzed for purposes of displaying content as well as be supplemented with other data and stored on the server of the online marketing process provider.

By way of exception, clear data can be assigned to the profiles. This is the case when users are e.g. Members of a social network whose online marketing process we use and the network connects the profiles of users in the aforementioned information. We kindly ask you to note that users have additional agreements with the providers, e.g. by consent in the context of registration.

In principle, we only have access to summarized information about the success of our advertisements. However, in the context of so-called conversion measurements, we can examine which of our online marketing methods led to a so-called conversion, for example to a contract with us. The conversion measurement is used solely to analyze the success of our marketing efforts.

Notes on legal bases: If we ask users for their consent to the use of third-party providers, the legal basis for the processing of data is the consent. Otherwise, users’ data will be processed based on our legitimate interests (i.e., interest in efficient, economical and recipient-friendly services). In this context, we would also like to draw your attention to the information on the use of cookies in this privacy policy.

  • Processed data types: usage data (e.g., visited web pages, interest in content, access times), meta / communication data (e.g., device information, IP addresses).
  • Affected Persons: Users (e.g., website visitors, online service users), prospects.
  • Purposes of processing: tracking (eg interest / behavioral profiling, use of cookies), remarketing, visitor action evaluation, interest and behavioral marketing, profiling (profiling (user profiling), conversion measurement (measurement of marketing effectiveness), reach measurement (eg access statistics, detection returning visitor).

Unless an explicit opt-out option has been specified, there is the possibility that you disable cookies in the settings of your browser. However, this can restrict functions of our online offer. We therefore also recommend the following opt-out options, which are offered in summary for specific areas:
