Data retention

When you contact us by email or register for our newsletter, the data you provide (your email address, name and telephone number, if applicable) will be stored by us for the duration of the processing. We delete the data gained in this context or restrict its storage if there are legal storage obligations.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies. These are text files stored on your computer that enable an analysis of how you use our website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will however be truncated by Google beforehand within the area of member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports for the website operator on website activity as well as providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google will not link the IP address transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics with any other data held by Google. You can prevent storage of these cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software. However, if you do this, we wish to point out that you may not be able to use all the features of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your usage of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

You can find more information about this at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en or at http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general information about Google Analytics and data protection). Please note that on this website, Google Analytics has been supplemented by the code gat._anonymizeIp(); in order to ensure anonymised collection of IP addresses (“IP masking”). We use the Google Tag Manager.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses the "Google Tag Manager", a service of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as "Google").

The Google Tag Manager tool that implements the tags is a cookie-less domain and does not itself collect any personal data. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Purposes of data processing by the responsible body and third parties

We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this privacy policy. Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned. We will only share your personal information with third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent to this,
  • it is necessary to process it to complete a contract with you,
  • it is necessary to process it for compliance with a legal obligation,
  • it is necessary to process it for the purposes of protecting legitimate interests, and
  • there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding protecting interest in the non-disclosure of your data.

Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use cookies. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data, such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the internet.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or deliver viruses to a computer. The information contained in cookies allows us to make your navigation easier and ensure that our web pages are displayed correctly.

Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

Of course, you can also generally view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. You can generally disable the use of cookies at any time through your browser settings. Please use your internet browser’s help functions to learn how to change these settings. Please note that some features of our website may not work if you have disabled cookies.

SSL encryption

We use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS to protect the security of your data during transmission.

Newsletter

We will regularly send you our newsletter or comparable information by email to your specified email address on the basis of you having expressly given consent. This also applies to our price alert.

You only have to provide your email address to receive the newsletter. When you register to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be notified by email of circumstances relevant to the service or registration (for example, changes to the newsletter offering or technical circumstances).

We need a valid email address for effective registration. We use the “double-opt-in” procedure to verify that a registration is actually made by the owner of an email address. To do this, we record that the newsletter has been requested, that a confirmation email has been sent and that the response has been received. We will not collect any further data. The data will only be used to send the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for the newsletter at any time. You will find a link to do this in every newsletter. You can also unsubscribe at any time directly on this website or inform us of your wish to do so using the contact option provided at the end of this data protection notice.

Contact form

If you contact us by email or contact form with questions of any kind, you give us your voluntary consent to contact you. We require you to specify a valid email address for this. This serves to classify the request and the subsequent response to it. Provision of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. After completion of your request, any personal data will be automatically deleted.

Google AdWords

Our website also uses Google conversion tracking. If you have accessed our website via an ad placed by Google, Google AdWords will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie information is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers can find out the total number of users who have clicked on their advert and were directed to the page using the conversion tracking tag. They do not, however, obtain any information that can be used to identify users personally.

If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse the cookie required for this to be set – for example, by means of a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or by setting your browser in such a way that cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com” are blocked.

Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish to record measurement data. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

Bugsnag

On our website we use code (Javascript) from the company Bugsnag Inc., 939 Harrison St, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA (hereinafter: Bugsnag). This code is a tool for the automatic search and analysis of errors. Whenever an error occurs in our system, the calling IP address is transmitted in anonymous form including the settings currently selected.

Further information can be found in Bugsnag's privacy policy: https://docs.bugsnag.com/legal/privacy-policy.

You can deactivate Bugsnag at any time using a Java script blocker.

We use Hotjar’s technology to get a better understanding of our users’ experiences (e.g. how much time users spend on which pages, which links they click, what they like and don’t like, etc.) which helps us to tailor our offering to our users’ feedback. Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data about our users’ behaviour and their devices, including but not limited to device IP address (collected and stored only in anonymised form during your website use), screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), information about the browser used, location (country only), preferred language for viewing our website.
