3.1 Cookies

As part of the use of our website, cookies are stored on your computer by third parties and us. Cookies are used to provide our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device and enable the recognition of your device.

We use cookies to optimise our web pages. So-called session cookies are used for this purpose, which enable recognition within a visit to our website. Session cookies are deleted automatically from your browser after your visit. Furthermore, we use cookies, which serve to recognise your device across sessions. Cookies stored on your device for this purpose are not deleted after the individual session.

You can object to the use of cookies through the default settings of your browser and thus prevent the setting of cookies. We would like to point out that the use of individual functions on our website may then not be possible. For this, it is also necessary that the browser is recognised again after a page change.

The legal basis for the processing of cookies is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest in the use of cookies is the provision of an attractive website and the evaluation of user behavior to improve our services.

Data collected for this purpose (name, address, telephone number, e-mail address) will - if you have given us your consent in this regard - be forwarded to our branches and partners. The data will not be merged with other data collected on this website.

With your request for an offer or your contact request, the provided data is transferred to our CRM system for the purpose of processing and tracking. This is necessary to process the request.

For the dispatch of the newsletter, we store your e-mail address as well as your first and last name and the lists subscribed by you. The data will be passed on to our service providers Evalanche and Tripicchio to send the newsletter.

We use Google Analytics on our website. The service is offered by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter "Google"). Google may store cookies on your terminal device in order to provide the service. Cookies are small text files that serve to recognise your browser.

Google stores the following data as part of your website usage: In addition to the IP address, the time, place, duration and frequency of your website visit are stored. We have set up Google Analytics in such a way that the IP address is made anonymous.

The IP address processed is shortened for this purpose. Google uses data to create reports for us on the use of our web pages. By means of these, we can recognise user streams on our website and optimise our website based on the findings.

Google will pass this information on to third parties if law requires this. Under no circumstances will Google merge your IP address with other data held by Google.

As part of the processing of Google Analytics, personal data will be transferred to the USA. In this case, the anonymisation of the IP address is carried out in any case before the transmission to the USA on servers within the member states of the European Union. The transfer of personal data to the USA takes place based on an adequacy decision of the European Commission dated July 12th 2016 ("EU-US Data Protection Shield").


Objection to data collection. You can object to data collection by Google Analytics as follows: Google provides a deactivation add-on that you can install in your browser. If this is properly installed in your browser, Google will not collect any data as part of the analytics program. The possibility of objection within the framework of the Analytics programme has no effect on the possible transfer of data to other web services.

The deactivation add-on can be downloaded from Google's website at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

3.5 Data transfers to third countries outside the EU
When Google Analytics processes data, it may transfer it to countries outside the European Union (so-called third countries). These are the USA. The EU Commission has issued an adequacy decision on the transfer of data to the USA: Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/1250.
