6.3.1 Google Analytics

Google Analytics and Google Remarketing Analytics in 6.4.2 is a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies, which allows an analysis of the use of our Website by Google. The information collected anonymously about the use of our Website (including your IP address) collected by the cookie is generally transferred to a server of Google in the USA and stored there. Your IP address will therefore be collected by Google only in abridged form, which ensures anonymization and does not permit conclusions about your identity. In the case of the activation of IP anonymization on our Website, your IP address will be abbreviated by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other Contracting States of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the US and abbreviated there. Google will use the information provided to evaluate your use of our Websites, to compile reports on the Website activity, and to provide Us with further services connected with the use of websites and the Internet. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. A transfer of this data by Google to third parties takes place only on the basis of legal regulations or in the context of the order data processing.

Under no circumstances will Google collect its data with other data collected by Google. By using our Website, You agree to the processing of the data collected about You by Google and the above-described manner of data processing as well as the stated purpose. You can prevent cookies from being saved by setting your browser software accordingly. We would point out, however, that in this case You may not be able to fully utilize all the functions of our Website. In addition, You can prevent Google's processing of the data (including your IP address) generated by the cookie and your use of our Website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link And install. For more information about Google Analytics and privacy, please visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

6.3.2 Google Analytics Remarketing

To display online advertisements to You when visiting our Website we have a remarketing list. A remarketing list is a collection of tracking cookies from people who visited our Website.

Making the remarketing is one of the key steps for setting up a remarketing campaign, so We can show personal advertisement on our Website to You. If You do not want to allow this Cookie you can opt-out as stated in 6.3.

6.3.3 Social plugins

Our internet presence uses social plugins ("plugins") from different social networks. With the help of these plugins, you can, for example, share content or recommend products. The plugins are deactivated by default on the Website and therefore do not send any data.

By clicking on the "Enable Social Media" button you can activate the plugins. The plugins can of course be deactivated with one click again.
When these plugins are enabled, your browser connects directly to the servers of the respective social network as soon as they access a website of our internet presence. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from the social network to your browser and integrated into it by the website.

By integrating the plugins, the social network gets the information that you have called up the corresponding page of our internet presence. If You are logged in to the social network, You can assign the visit to your account. If You interact with the plugins, like the Facebook "Like" button or make a comment, the corresponding information from your browser is sent directly to the social network and stored there.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by social networks, as well as your rights and settings for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the privacy policy of the respective networks or websites.

Even if you are not logged into social networks, web pages with active social plugins can send data to the networks. An active plugin is used to set a cookie with an identifier every time the web page is accessed. Because your browser does not send this cookie any time You connect to a network server, the network could basically create a profile that called up the websites of the users belonging to the ID. And it would then also be quite possible to assign this identifier to a person later - for example, later logging on to the social network.

If You do not want social networks to collect data about you through active plugins, You can either disable the social plugins simply by clicking on our Websites or choose the option "Block third-party cookies" in your browser settings. Then the browser does not send cookies to the server for embedded content from other providers. With this setting, however, other page-spreading functions may not work, in addition to the plugins.

6.4 Third party cookies

We use third parties to serve cookies. Currently, we use: 

  1. Google Analytics by Google Inc. this to help us monitor our Website traffic,
