This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, which are text files stored on your computer that enable an analysis of your website usage. The information generated by the cookie concerning your usage of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within the European Union member states or in other countries in the European Economic Area agreement. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your website usage in order to compile reports about your website activities and to perform additional services relating to your website and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted from your browser for the purpose of Google Analytics is not connected with other Google data. You may prevent the storing of cookies by changing the settings in your browser software; however, please be aware that this may mean that you are unable to use all of this website’s functions to their full extent. Furthermore, you may prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie referring to your website usage (including your IP address) for Google and the processing of such data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link:

We would like to point out that the website Google Analytics uses the extension „gat._anonymizeIp();“  and therefore IP addresses are processed in a shortened version only to avoid a direct connection to any person.

Use of Social Plugins

Our websites feature social plugins of different social networks (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, XING or Pinterest). By means of these plugins you can set bookmarks on these websites and share these bookmarks with other participants of the social networks. You can recognise social plugins by the logos that can be found on the websites of the social networks.

From there, the image of the plugin and the underlying functions are then transmitted directly to your browser. Your browser will integrate these into the representation of our website. If, at that moment, you are logged in to the social network using your user name and password, the information that you are visiting our website will be transferred to the social network and this information can be assigned to your user account. If you are interacting with the social plugins, i.e. if you share one of our websites or if you use the Facebook “Like” or “Share”, the Pinterest “Pin-it” or the Twitter “Tweet This” functions, for instance, the contents of our websites will be linked to your profile in the social network. If you are not a member of the social network or if you logged out with the providers before visiting our shop, it may nevertheless be possible that at least your IP address is transmitted and stored with the providers.
