Cookies are small files that are stored on the user's computer. Different data can be stored within the cookies. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his/her visit to an online offering. Temporary cookies, "session cookies" or "transient cookies", are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes his/her browser. For example, the content of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login Status can be stored in a cookie of this nature. Cookies are referred to as "permanent" or "persistent" if they remain saved even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved if users visit it after several days have passed. Likewise, the interests of users may be stored in a cookie of this nature and used for range measurements or marketing purposes. Third-party cookies" are cookies that are offered by providers other than the responsible person who operates the online offer (otherwise, if the only cookies are run by the responsible person, they are referred to as "first-party cookies").

We may use temporary and permanent cookies and clarify this within the framework of our data protection declaration.

If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Cookies already saved can be deleted in the system settings of the browser at any time. Deactivating the use of cookies can restrict some of this site's functionality.

A general objection to the use of cookies used for online marketing purposes can be explained for a large number of services, especially in the case of tracking, via the US site or the EU site. Furthermore, you can deactivate the storage of cookies in the browser settings. Please note that in this case not all functions of this online offer can be used.

Unless expressly stated in this privacy policy, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory storage obligations. If the data is not deleted because it is necessary for other and legally permissible purposes, the processing of the data will be restricted. This means that the data are blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for commercial or tax reasons.

Marketing & Performance Measurement

Google Analytics

Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation, and economical operation of our online offer in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC ("Google"). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the user's use of the website's online offerings is generally transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of our online offering by the user, to compile reports on the activities within this online offering and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offering and the Internet. Pseudonymous usage profiles of users may be created from the processed data in this respect.

We use Google Analytics only with activated IP anonymisation. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

The IP address sent by your browser will not be connected with other data from Google. Users may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on their browser software; users may also prevent Google from collecting data generated by the cookie and relating to their use of the online offer and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at this link.

For more information about Google's use of data, preferences and opt-out options, refer to the Google privacy policy and the Settings for Google's display of ads.

Users' personal data will be deleted or made anonymous after 14 months.

Google AdSense with personalised ads

Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation, and economical operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, ("Google").

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.

We use the AdSense service, which is used to display ads on our website and of which their insertion or other use we receive payment. For these purposes, usage data such as the click on an advertisement and the IP address of the user are processed, whereby the IP address is shortened by the last two digits. Therefore, the processing of the user's data is pseudonymised.

We use AdSense with personalised ads. Google uses the websites visited by users or the apps used and the user profiles created in this way to draw conclusions about their interests. Advertisers use this information to align their campaigns with these interests, which is beneficial for users and advertisers alike. For Google, ads are personalised when collected or known information determines or affects ad selection. These include past searches, activities, site visits, use of apps, demographic and location information, and more. Specifically, this includes demographic targeting, targeting on interest categories, remarketing, and targeting on customer match lists and target group lists uploaded to DoubleClick Bid Manager or Campaign Manager.

For more information about Google's use of data, preferences and opt-out options, refer to the Google privacy policy and the Settings for Google's display of ads.

Google AdWords and Conversion Measurement

Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation, and economical operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR), we use the services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, ("Google").

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.

We use the online marketing process Google "AdWords" to place ads on the Google Advertising Network (e.g., in search results, videos, on websites, etc.) to show them to users who have a suspected interest in the ads. This allows us to display ads for and within our online offer more specifically in order to only present ads that potentially correspond to the users interests. For example, if a user sees ads for products he has been interested in on other websites, this is referred to as "re-marketing". For these purposes, when the user accesses our and other websites on which Google marketing services are active, Google directly executes a Google code and (re)marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also known as "web beacons") are integrated into the website. These store a unique cookie or comparable technology on the user's device. This file keeps a record of which websites the user visited, which contents he is interested in and which offers he has clicked on, as well as technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, visiting time and further information about the use of the online offer.

We also receive an individual "conversion cookie". The information collected with the help of cookies is used by Google to generate conversion statistics for us. However, we only see the total number of anonymous users who clicked on our ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. We do not obtain any information that can be used to identify users personally.

User data is processed pseudonymously within the Google advertising network. This means that Google does not store and process the names or email addresses of users, for example, but processes the relevant data cookie-related within pseudonymous user profiles. This means that, from Google's point of view, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie holder, regardless of who this cookie holder is. This does not apply if a user has expressly permitted Google to process the data without this pseudonymisation. The information collected about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the USA.

For more information about Google's use of data, preferences and opt-out options, refer to the Google privacy policy and the Settings for Google's display of ads.

Facebook pixel, Custom Audiences and Facebook-Conversion

Due to our legitimate interests in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer and for these purposes the so-called "Facebook pixel" of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or, if you are based in the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"), is used within our online offer.

Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.

With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook is able to determine the visitors of our online offer as a target group for the presentation of advertisements (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display our Facebook ads only to Facebook users who have shown an interest in our website or who have certain traits (e.g. interests in certain topics or products that are determined by the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "custom audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we want to make sure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and are not annoying. The Facebook pixel also helps us understand the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and marketing research purposes by showing and evaluating whether users are directed to our site after they have clicked a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion").

Facebook processes the data in accordance with Facebook's Data Usage Policy. Accordingly, general information about the display of Facebook ads is in the Facebook data usage policy. For specific information and details about the Facebook pixel and how it works, see the Help section of Facebook.

You can object to the collection and use of your data with Facebook pixels for Facebook ads. To set what types of ads you see within Facebook, you can view the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions for the settings of usage-based advertising there. The settings apply across platforms, i.e. they are applied to all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.

You may also object to the use of cookies for reach measurement and advertising purposes via the disabling page of the network advertising initiative and additionally the US website or the European website.

Data transfer with Zapier

For the automated transfer of required user data between the various marketing tools (e.g. to transfer a newsletter registration via the reader survey to our mailing service provider ConvertKit or the transfer of shop orders to our shipping service provider), we use the software "Zapier" from the provider Zapier, Inc. 548 Market St #62411, San Francisco, California 94104, USA.

GDPR) we include content or service offerings of third parties so that we can incorporate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as "content").

This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content can see the IP address of users, since without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the users' browsers. The IP address is therefore necessary in order to display this content. We strive only to use content from providers who use the IP address to deliver content, and for nothing else. Third-party providers may also use so called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as web beacons) for statistical or marketing purposes. "Pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website.
