4. Data collection on our website

Cookies

Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies, which are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket function), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for technically error-free and optimized provision of his services. As far as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behaviour) are stored, these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data are not combined with other data sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provided there, will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The data entered in the contact form is therefore processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal e-mail. The legality of the data processing processes carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete, your consent for storage revoked or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

5. Analysis tools and advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both his website and his advertising.

IP anonymization

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This will cause your IP address to be cut by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Browser plugin

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

More information on how Google Analytics handles user data can be found in Google’s privacy policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

Contract data processing

We have concluded a contract with Google for commissioned data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities for the use of Google Analytics.

Cloudflare:

We use Cloudflare from Cloudflare, Inc. on this website. (101 Townsend St., San Francisco, CA 94107, USA) to make our website faster and more secure. Cloudflare uses cookies and processes user data. Cloudflare, Inc. is an American company that provides a content delivery network and various security services. These services are located between the user and our hosting provider and act as a reverse proxy for websites. We will try to explain in more detail below what all this means.

What is Cloudflare?

A Content Delivery Network (CDN), as provided by the company Cloudflare, is nothing more than a network of servers connected via the internet. Cloudflare has distributed such servers all over the world to bring websites to your screen faster. In simple terms, Cloudflare creates copies of our website and places them on their own servers. Now, when you visit our website, a system of load balancing ensures that the largest parts of our website are delivered from the server that can show you our website the fastest. The distance of data transfer to your browser is significantly shortened by a CDN. Thus, the content of our website is not only delivered to you by Cloudflare from our hosting server, but from servers all over the world. The use of Cloudflare is particularly helpful for users from abroad, as here the page can be delivered from a server in the vicinity. In addition to the fast delivery of websites, Cloudflare also offers various security services, such as DDoS protection or the web application firewall.

Why we use Cloudflare on our website?

Of course, we want to offer you the best possible service with our website. Cloudflare helps us to make our website faster and more secure. Cloudflare provides us with web optimisations as well as security services, such as DDoS protection and web firewall. This also includes a reverse proxy and content distribution network (CDN). Cloudflare blocks threats and limits abusive bots and crawlers that waste our bandwidth and server resources. By storing our website on local data centres and blocking spam software, Cloudflare enables us to reduce our bandwidth usage by around 60%. Serving content through a data centre near you and some web optimisations performed there reduces the average website load time by about half. The “I’m Under Attack Mode” setting can mitigate further attacks, according to Cloudflare, by displaying a JavaScript computational task to solve before a user can access a web page. Overall, this makes our website much more powerful and less vulnerable to spam or other attacks.

What data is stored by Cloudflare?

Cloudflare generally only forwards that data which is controlled by website operators. The content is therefore not determined by Cloudflare, but always by the website operator itself. In addition, Cloudflare may collect certain information on the use of our website and process data that is sent by us or for which Cloudflare has received appropriate instructions. In most cases, Cloudflare receives data such as contact information, IP addresses, security fingerprints, DNS log data and website performance data derived from browser activity. Log data helps Cloudflare to detect new threats, for example. In this way, Cloudflare can ensure a high level of security protection for our website. Cloudflare processes this data within the scope of the services in compliance with applicable laws. This of course also includes the German Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO).

For security reasons, Cloudflare also uses a cookie. The cookie (__cfduid) is used to identify individual users behind a shared IP address and to apply security settings for each individual user. This cookie becomes very useful, for example, if you are using our website from a location where there are a number of infected computers. However, if your computer is trustworthy, we can recognise this from the cookie. This means that you can surf our website unhindered, despite infected PCs in the vicinity. It is also important to know that this cookie does not store any personal data. This cookie is absolutely necessary for the Cloudflare security functions and cannot be deactivated.

Cloudflare cookies

  • __cfduid
    • Expiry time: 1 year
    • Usage: Security settings for each individual visitor
    • Exemplary value: d798bf7df9c1ad5b7583eda5cc5e78331608012672

Cloudflare also works together with third-party providers. These may only process personal data under the instruction of Cloudflare and in accordance with the privacy policy and other confidentiality and security measures. Cloudflare does not share personal data without explicit consent from us.

How long and where is the data stored?

Cloudflare stores your information primarily in the USA and the European Economic Area. Cloudflare can transfer and access the information described above from all over the world. In general, Cloudflare stores user-level data for domains in the Free, Pro and Business versions for less than 24 hours. For Enterprise domains that have Cloudflare Logs (formerly Enterprise LogShare or ELS) enabled, data can be stored for up to 7 days. However, if IP addresses trigger security alerts at Cloudflare, there may be exceptions to the retention period listed above.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

Cloudflare only keeps data logs for as long as necessary and this data is also deleted again within 24 hours in most cases. Cloudflare also does not store any personal data, such as your IP address. However, there is information that Cloudflare stores indefinitely as part of its permanent logs in order to improve the overall performance of Cloudflare Resolver and to identify any security risks. You can find out exactly which permanent logs are stored at https://www.cloudflare.com/application/privacypolicy/ read. All data that Cloudflare collects (temporary or permanent) is cleansed of all personal data. All permanent logs are also anonymised by Cloudflare.

Cloudflare addresses in their privacy policy that they are not responsible for the content they receive. For example, if you ask Cloudflare whether they can update or delete your content, Cloudflare basically refers to us as the website operator. You can also completely prevent the entire collection and processing of your data by Cloudflare by deactivating the execution of script code in your browser or by integrating a script blocker in your browser.

Cloudflare is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on this at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000GnZKAA0.
