Privacy Statement
Your data is in safe hands. It is strictly prohibited for your personal data to be passed on to third parties. Your data is used solely to process your order and, with your consent, for advertising our products and for market research. If you prefer that we do not use your personal data for our own advertising purposes, you can revoke consent to use your data at any time.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, text files that are stored on your computer to aid in analysing your use of the website. The information generated by a cookie concerning your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google-owned server in the USA where it is then stored. Google analyses this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about website activity for the website operators and to provide additional services that are associated with the use of the website and the Internet. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. In no circumstances will Google link your IP address with any other data held by Google. You can prevent the cookies from being installed with an appropriate setting in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case, it may not be possible for you to make full use of all this website’s functions. By using this website, you consent to any data that Google may compile about you being used in the manner described and for the purpose stated.  Google provides the option of deactivating Google Analytics using a browser add-on.

Our website also uses the measurement procedure (“SZMnG”) provided by INFOnline GmbH to measure statistical parameters relating to the use of our online services. The aim of the reach measurement is to statistically measure the use intensity, number of website users and surfing behaviour on the basis of a standardised procedure to allow values to be collected that are comparable across the market. For web services that are a member of the Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. (IVW) or that participate in studies carried out by the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. (AGOF), the usage statistics are regularly published by the AGOF, the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e.V. (agma) and the IVW and they can be accessed on the corresponding websites.

1. Data processing
INFOnline GmbH collects and processes data in accordance with German data protection law. Technical and organisational measures are taken to ensure that it is not possible for individual users to be identified at any time. Data that could possibly be linked to a particular identifiable person are made anonymous as early on as possible.

1.1 Anonymisation of the IP address
On the Internet, each device requires a unique address to transmit information: the IP address. Because of how the Internet functions, it is technically necessary for the IP address to be saved, at least for a short period. IP addresses are truncated before any processing. Further processing is only performed on anonymised IP addresses. No IP addresses that have not been truncated are saved or processed.

1.2 Geolocalisation to federal-state/regional level
Geolocalisation (website access being linked to the access location) is performed exclusively on the basis of the anonymised IP addresses and only to the geographical level of federal state/region. The geographical information thus collected cannot under any circumstances be used to determine a user’s specific place of residence.

1.3 Identification number of the device
To allow computer systems to be recognised, the reach measurement uses alternatively either a cookie with the identifier “ioam.de”, a local storage object or an anonymous signature that is compiled from diverse information from your browser that is transmitted automatically. The validity of the cookie is restricted to a maximum of one year.

1.4 Login identifiers
To measure distributed use (a service being used from various devices), the login user identifier, where available, can be sent to INFOnline as an anonymised checksum.

2. Deletion
The saved usage processes are deleted after seven months at the latest.

3. Opt-out
If you would rather not take part in the measurement, you can opt out via the following link: http://optout.ioam.de. Further information on data protection in the measurement procedure can be found on the website of INFOnline GmbH (the company that operates the measurement procedure) (https://www.infonline.de), AGOF’s web page concerning data protection (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the IVW’s data protection webpage (http://www.ivw.eu).
