Information about specific cookies
Our website uses different types of cookies to analyze the usage of the website and to advertise the products in a targeted way. To this end, we use technologies from various vendors (e.g. Google., Hotjar, etc.).
Google Analytics uses various types of cookies. These can change over time. That is why we summarize the usage of Google Analytics in the following.
This website uses Google Analytics by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).
Via Google Analytics, data, sessions, and interactions across several devices can be allocated to a pseudonymous user ID. Thereby, user activities can be analyzed across multiple devices.
Via cookies, which are text files saved on your computer, your use of this website will be analyzed. We use the function “IP anonymization”. Therefore, the data will be processed in an EU member state or in another country which is a signatory to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). In exceptional cases, the full IP address will be transmitted to a server in the USA and truncated there. The IP address transferred from your browser by Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. Google will, on our behalf, utilize the transmitted data and provide us with reports on the website activities and usage. In addition to that, Google will provide further services related to the usage of the website and the internet usage. This purpose reflects our legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The legal basis in this regard is §15(3) German Teleservices Act and Art. 6(1)(F) GDPR. All data collected by cookies in this manner will be deleted automatically once a month after a period of 14 months.
You can configure the management of the cookies via the settings in your browser software.
Via the opt-out cookie (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en), you can prevent the data from being processed by Google. To this end, you need to download and install the browser add-on. If you wish this to apply to multiple devices, you will need to install this add-on on all devices.
This site uses Hotjar, a web analytics service provided by Hotjar Ltd, Level 2, St Julians Business Centre in 3, Elia Zammit Street, St Julians, Malta. Hotjar is designed to test the user-friendliness of certain sites. To this end, anonymous measured data on the user behavior will be collected. We are unable to assign such anonymous measurement data – such as by assigning your IP address or in another way – to you personally. To receive meaningful results, so-called cookies will be used, i.e. the program applies the corresponding function to cache the information temporarily and to access them at a later time (for further details please go to: https://docs.hotjar.com/docs/hotjar-cookies.) You can delete the cookies in your browser at any time. In addition to that, you can opt out from the test via the following link: https://www.hotjar.com/opt-out.
