3.5 Use of cookies and Google Analytics

Cookies are small text files that are stored on the hard drive of a client computer by a website and with the help of the browser in order to save small amounts of information from the website for a certain period of time. In general, there are different types of cookies. Some are essential for the functioning of the website, such as navigation or shopping basket cookies. There are also so-called analytical cookies, which collect information - e.g. about the number of website visitors and the path taken by visitors to the website. Function cookies enable the website to remember the choices you have made (e.g. selected filter settings or automatic language presetting of a website).

In addition, there are cookies, so-called profiling cookies, which record the user's preferences and actions. This information is used to create a user profile. This is used to combine advertising messages with the interests of the user and thus enables more targeted advertising. In many cases, third-party cookies are used by the website operator to broadcast personalised advertising. Website visitors must actively consent to the setting of cookies that are not essential for the functionality of the website and also have the right to withdraw their consent at any time.

Our website uses a technology called CMP (Consent Management Platform) to manage this right. When the website is accessed, a banner appears informing the website user about the use of cookies, offering various consent options (consent to all cookies, individual categories of cookies or each individual cookie separately) and providing detailed information about the various cookies (type, scope, purposes, processed data and recipient categories, legal basis and storage duration). The CMP remembers the settings made by the website user and reapplies them the next time they visit the website. The website visitor can exercise the right of cancellation or adjust the settings here.

4. Data transfer to third countries

Due to the complexity of today's data processing processes, we engage processors to process your data. As far as possible, we only use processors that are based within the European Union or the European Economic Area and are therefore subject to the GDPR.

In exceptional cases, however, we may transfer data to third countries (i.e. outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) and have it processed there. If we transfer data to third countries, the transfer takes place exclusively in compliance with the required conditions of admissibility (in particular the existence of an adequacy decision by the EU Commission, conclusion of standard data protection clauses including - if necessary - additional agreement of further technical and organisational as well as contractual measures). If your data is transferred to a third country, you can request a copy of the suitable or appropriate safeguards from our data protection organisation.

5. Rights of data subjects and the right to lodge a complaint

  • In accordance with Art 15 GDPR, you have the right to obtain confirmation from us as the controller as to whether or not personal data concerning you are being processed, and, where that is the case, you have the right of access to your personal data.
  • In accordance with Art 16 GDPR, you have the right to request the rectification of inaccurate data concerning you and/or the completion of incomplete personal data without undue delay.
  • In accordance with Art 17 GDPR, you have the right to erasure of your personal data.
  • In accordance with Art 18 GDPR, you have the right to restrict processing.
  • In accordance with Art 20 GDPR, you have a right to data portability.
  • In accordance with Art 21 GDPR, you have the right to object to data processing.
  • If your data is processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
  • Finally, you have the option of lodging a complaint with the supervisory authority responsible for you.
