    Cookie usage

    Usage of Cookies

    In the context of our online service, cookies and tracking mechanisms may be used.

    Cookies are small text files that may be stored on your device when visiting our online service.

    Tracking is possible using different technologies. In particular, we process information using pixel technology and/or during log file analysis.

    Categories

    We distinguish between cookies that are mandatorily required for the technical functions of the online service and such cookies and tracking mechanisms that are not mandatorily required for the technical function of the online service.

    It is generally possible to use the online service without any cookies that serve non-technical purposes.

    Technically required cookies

    By technically required cookies we mean cookies without those the technical provision of the online service cannot be ensured. These include e.g. cookies that store data to ensure smooth reproduction of video or audio footage.

    Such cookies will be deleted when you leave the website.

    Cookies and tracking mechanisms that are technically not required

    We only use such cookies and tracking mechanisms if you have given us your prior consent in each case. We distinguish between two sub-categories with regard to these cookies and tracking mechanisms:

    Convenience cookies

    These cookies facilitate operation and thus allow you to browse our online service more comfortably; e.g. your language settings may be included in these cookies.

    Marketing cookies and tracking mechanisms

    General

    By using marketing cookies and tracking mechanisms we and our partners are able to show you offerings based on your interests, resulting from an analysis of your user behaviour:

    - Statistics:

    By using statistical tools, we measure e.g. the number of your page views.

    - Conversion tracking:

    Our conversion tracking partners place a cookie on your computer ("conversion cookie") if you accessed our website via an advertisement of the respective partner. Normally these cookies are no longer valid after 30 days. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and the relevant conversion partner can recognize that a certain user clicked on the advertisement and thereby was redirected to our website. The information obtained by means of the conversion cookie serves the purpose of compiling conversion statistics and recording the total number of users who clicked on the respective advertisement and were redirected to a website with a conversion tracking tag.

    - Social plugins

    Some of the pages of our online service involve content and services of other providers (e.g. Facebook, Twitter) which also may use cookies and active modules. For more details regarding social plugins please refer to the section on social plugins

    - Retargeting

    These tools create user profiles by means of advertising cookies or third-party advertising cookies so called "web beacons" (invisible graphics that are also called pixels or tracking pixels), or by means of comparable technologies. These are used for interest-based advertising and to control the frequency with which the user looks at certain advertisements. The relevant provider is the controller responsible for the processing of data in connection with the tool. The providers of the tools might disclose information also to third parties for the purposes mentioned above. Please note the data protection notices of the relevant provider in this context.

    Please note that using the tools might include transfer of your data to recipients outside of the EEA where there is no adequate level of data protection pursuant to the GDPR (e.g. the USA). For more details in this respect please refer to the following description of the individual marketing tools.

    Management of cookies and tracking mechanisms

    You can manage your cookie and tracking mechanism settings in the browser and/or our privacy settings.

    Note: The settings you have made refer only to the browser used in each case.

    Deactivation of all cookies

    If you wish to deactivate all cookies, please deactivate cookies in your browser settings. Please note that this may affect the functionality of the website.

    Management of your settings with regard to cookies and tracking mechanisms not required technically

    When visiting our websites, you will be asked in a cookie layer whether you consent to our using of any convenience cookies, marketing cookies or tracking mechanisms, respectively.

    In our privacy settings, you may withdraw the consent with effect for the future or grant your consent at a later point in time.

    Processing of your location data

    Our offers also include so-called location based services through which we provide you with special offers that are tailored to your respective location. To offer this app function, we collect the last three GPS locations delivered by the mobile device and your IP address when you consent. We do not create a movement profile. You can deactivate this function in the respective app's settings or in the settings of the operating system of your mobile device or pause it temporarily without affecting the basic functionality of the app.

    Social Plugins

    In our Online Offers we use so-called social plugins from various social networks. They are individually described in this section.

    When using plugins, your internet browser creates a direct connection to the respective social networks’ server. Hereby the respective provider receives the information that your internet browser accessed from the respective site of our Online Offers - even if you do not have a user account with this provider or are currently not logged into your account. Log files (including the IP address) are, in this case, directly transmitted from your internet browser to a server of the respective provider and might be stored there. The provider or its server may be located outside the EU or the EEA (e.g. in the United States).

    The plugins are standalone extensions by social network providers. For this reason, we are unable to influence the scope of data collected and stored by them.

    Purpose and scope of the collection, the continued processing and usage of data by the social network as well as your respective rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found by consulting the respective social network's data protection notices.

    In case you do not wish social network providers to receive and, if applicable, store or use data, you should not use the respective plugins.

    Facebook plugins

    Facebook is operated under www.facebook.com by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, and under www.facebook.de by Facebook Ireland Limited, Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). Find an overview over Facebook's plugins and their appearance here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins ; find information on data protection at Facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php .

    YouTube

    Our Online Offers use the YouTube video platform which is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066, USA („YouTube”). YouTube is a platform which allows the playback of audio and video files.

    When you access a respective site of our Online Offers that contains an embedded YouTube player, this creates a connection to YouTube so that the video or audio file can be transmitted and played back. In doing so, data is transferred to YouTube as a data controller. We are not responsible for the processing of such data by YouTube.

    Additional information on the scope and purpose of collected data, on further processing and usage of data by YouTube, on your rights and the privacy options available to be chosen by you, can be found in YouTube's data protection notice.

Upon clicking on the link, we have no influence on the collecting, processing and use of personal data possibly transmitted by clicking on the link to the third party (such as the IP address or the URL of the site on which the link is located) as the conduct of third parties is naturally beyond our control. We do not assume responsibility for the processing of personal data by third parties.
