Data Protection Declaration

Information about the processing of your data

In accordance with art. 12 of the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter: GDPR), we are obliged to inform you about the processing of your data when using our website. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously, and this data protection declaration informs you about the details of the processing of your data and about your legal rights in this regard.

We reserve the right to adapt the data protection declaration with effect for the future, in particular in the event of further development of the website, the use of new technologies and changes to the legal basis or the corre-sponding jurisdiction.

We recommend that you periodically read the data protection declaration and keep or print out a copy of it.

Definitions

  • "Website" or "Internet presence" in the following means all the pages of the responsible body on www.cookconcern.de; www.cookconcern.com
  • "Personal data" means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A person is identifi-able if they can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special characteristics which express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. Personal data is therefore, for example, a person's name, e-mail address and telephone number, but may also include infor-mation about preferences, hobbies and memberships.
  • "Processing" means operations or sets of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures in connection with personal data, such as the collection, recording, organisation, classification, storage, adaptation, modification, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, reconciliation, linking, restriction, erasure or destruction.
  • "Pseudonymisation" means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
  • "Consent" in the following means any voluntary declaration of intent in the form of a declaration or other clear affirmative act by which the data subject indicates their consent to the processing of personal data concerning them, in an informed and unambiguous manner, for the particular case.
  • "Google" also means Google, LLC 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; available in the European Union at: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001.

Questions about data protection

If you have any questions about data protection with regard to our company or our website, please do not hesitate to contact us (see the contact details of the responsible provider).

Security

We have taken comprehensive technical and organisational precautions to protect your personal data from unau-thorised access, misuse, loss and other external disturbances. To this end, we regularly review our security meas-ures and adapt them to the state of the art.

Your Rights

You have the following rights with regard to the personal data concerning you that you can assert against us:

  • Right to information (art. 15 GDPR),
  • Right to correction (art. 16 GDPR) or deletion (art. 17 GDPR),
  • Right to limitation of processing (art. 18 GDPR),
  • Right to object to processing (art. 21 GDPR),
  • Right to revoke your consent (art. 7 para. 3 GDPR),
  • Right to receive the data in a structured, common, machine-readable format ("data transferability") and the right to pass on the data to another responsible person if the prerequisite of art. 20 para. 1 lit. a, b GDPR applies (art. 20 GDPR).

You can assert your rights by notifying the "Responsible Provider" specified in the contact data section or the data pro-tection officer appointed by us.

You also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about our processing of your per-sonal data (art. 77 GDPR).

Use of the website, access data

You can use our website for purely informational purposes without disclosing your identity. When calling up the individual pages of the website to this end, access data is merely transmitted to our web space provider so that the website can be displayed to you. The following data is transmitted:

  • browser type/browser version
  • used operating system
  • language and version of the browser software
  • host name of the accessing device
  • IP address
  • website from which the request comes
  • content of the request (specific page)
  • date and time of the server request
  • access status/HTTP status code
  • referrer URL (the previously visited page)
  • amount of data transferred
  • time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)

Temporary processing of the IP address by the system is necessary for the technical delivery of the website to your computer. Processing your IP address for the duration of the session is required. The legal basis for such processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

The access data is not used to identify individual users and is not merged with other data sources. The access data is deleted when it is no longer required to achieve the purpose of its processing. If data is collected to provide the website, this is the case when you end your visit to the website.

IP addresses are stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used by us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. No evaluation of the data for marketing purposes takes place in this context either. The data will be deleted after seven days at the latest; further processing is possible in individual cases. In this case, the IP address is deleted or distorted in such a way that assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the processing of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. You may object to the processing. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust data processing or point out to you our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue the processing.

Cookies

In addition to the aforementioned access data, so-called cookies are stored in the Internet browser of the terminal device you are using when using the website. These are small text files with a sequence of numbers that are stored locally in the cache of the used browser. Cookies do not become part of the PC system and cannot execute programs. They serve to make our website user-friendly. The use of cookies may be technically necessary or may serve other purposes (e.g. analysis/evaluation of website usage).

a) Technically-necessary cookies

Some elements of our website require that the calling browser be able to be identified even after a page change. The following data is processed in the cookies:

  • language settings
  • items in the shopping cart
  • log-in information

The user data collected by technically-necessary cookies is not processed for the creation of user profiles. We also use "session cookies", which store a session ID that can be used to assign various requests from your browser to the shared session. Session cookies are necessary to use the website. In particular, they enable us to recognise the terminal device used when you return to the website. We use this cookie to recognise you on subsequent visits to the website if you have an account with us; otherwise you would have to log in again each time you visit. The legal basis for this processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. We use session cookies to make use of the website more attractive and effective. Session cookies are deleted as soon as you log out or close your browser.

Most browsers are pre-set to automatically accept cookies. You can object to the processing of your data by cook-ies. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your Internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the website in full.


b) Technically unnecessary cookies

We also use cookies on the website which enable analysis of the user's surfing behaviour. For example, the fol-lowing data is stored and processed in the cookies:

  • entered search terms
  • frequency of page views
  • use of website functions

These cookies are used to make use of the website more efficient and attractive. The legal basis for such processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Cookies not needed for technical reasons are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie.

You can object to the processing of your data by cookies. If you do not wish to use cookies, you have the option of generally or selectively blocking the storage of cookies or removing cookies that have already been stored by changing your browser settings. You can also have this information displayed before setting a cookie. If you change the browser settings for the use of cookies or deactivate cookies, the functional scope of this website may be limited.


If we integrate third-party cookies into our website, we will point this out to you separately below.

c) Flash cookies

Furthermore, HTML5 storage objects are used, which are stored on the device you are using ("Flash cookies"). These process the required data independently of the browser used and do not have an automatic expiry date. The legal basis for such processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. These cookies are used to make use of the website more efficient and attractive.

You can object to the processing of your data by cookies. The transmission of Flash cookies cannot be prevented via the browser settings, but can be prevented by changing the Flash Player settings. If you do not wish to use Flash cookies, please install an appropriate add-on in your browser, e.g. "Better Privacy" for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/).

You can also prevent the use of Flash cookies by opening the browser in "private mode". You can also regularly delete cookies and browser history manually.


Contacting our company

When contacting our company, e.g. by e-mail, the personal data provided by you will be processed by us in order to answer your enquiry.

A name or pseudonym and a valid e-mail address are mandatory for processing enquiries. At the time of sending the message to us, the following data will also be processed:

  • IP address
  • Date/time of registration

The legal basis for the processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR or art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b) GDPR if the aim of establishing contact is to conclude a contract.

We process the personal data from the input mask purely for contact purposes. In the event of contact by e-mail, this also constitutes a necessary legitimate interest for processing the data. The other personal data processed during the sending process is used to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our infor-mation technology systems.

In this context, no data is passed on to third parties. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation. We delete the data arising in this context once processing is no longer necessary, or limit the processing to com-pliance with the existing statutory mandatory storage obligations.

You can object to the processing of your personal data for contact enquiries at any time. This is the case if proc-essing is not necessary in particular to fulfil a contract with you, which is described by us in the previous descrip-tion of the functions. In such a case, processing of the request may possibly not be continued. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust data processing or point out to you our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue the processing.


Processing and forwarding of personal data for contractual purposes

We process your personal data if and to the extent necessary for the initiation, justification, execution and/or termination of a legal transaction with our company. The legal basis for this results from art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

After the purpose has been achieved (e.g. contract processing), the personal data will be blocked or deleted for further processing unless we are entitled to further storage and processing required in the respective context on the basis of a consent given by you (e.g. consent to the processing of the e-mail address for sending electronic advertising mail), a contractual agreement, a statutory authorisation (e.g. authorisation to send direct advertising) or on the basis of justified interests (e.g. storage for asserting claims).

Your personal data will be passed on if

  • it is necessary for the establishment, execution or termination of legal transactions with our company (e.g. when passing on data to a payment service provider/a mail order company to process a contract with you), (art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b) GDPR), or
  • a subcontractor or vicarious agent whom we use exclusively within the framework of the provision of the offers or services requested by you, needs this data (such vicarious agents are only entitled to process the data insofar as this is necessary for the provision of the offer or service, unless you are expressly informed otherwise) or
  • an enforceable official order (art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. c) GDPR) exists or
  • there is an enforceable court order (art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. c) GDPR) or
  • we are legally obliged to do so (art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. c) GDPR) or
  • the processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person (art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. d) GDPR) or
  • we are authorised or even obliged to pursue overriding legitimate interests (art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR).

Your personal data will not be passed on to other persons, companies or bodies unless you have effectively con-sented to such a transfer. The legal basis for the processing is then art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

Processing and forwarding of personal data in the online ordering system

If you wish to place an order or booking in our online shop, it is necessary for the initiation and conclusion of the contract that you provide personal data such as your name, your address and your e-mail address. The manda-tory data required for order and contract processing is marked separately; additional information is provided voluntarily. We process your data for order processing purposes. Moreover, in particular we will forward pay-ment data to your chosen payment service provider or our house bank. The legal basis for the processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b) GDPR. In order to prevent unauthorised third parties from accessing your personal data, the order process on the website is encrypted using SSL/TLS technology.

You can voluntarily create a customer account in which we will store your data for future visits to the website. When you create a customer account, the data you enter is processed. All other data, including your customer account, can be edited or deleted after successful login.

We delete the data arising in this context once storage is no longer necessary, or limit the processing if statutory retention obligations exist. Due to mandatory commercial and tax regulations, we are obliged to keep your ad-dress, payment and order data for a period of ten years. Two years after termination of the contract, we limit and reduce the processing to compliance with existing statutory obligations.

Registration/ password-protected area of the website

If you wish to use the password-protected area of our website, you must register using the following information:

  • e-mail address
  • name
  • user name
  • self-chosen password

Furthermore, the following data will be processed at the time of registration:

  • IP address
  • Date/time of registration

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which it was processed. This is the case for the data collected during the registration process if the registration on the website is cancelled or modified.

The following functions are available in the password-protected area:

  • edit your profile data,
  • manage or view your created ads,
  • manage, change or cancel your newsletter subscription.

If you use the password-protected area of the website, e.g. to process your profile data or to view orders and bookings made, we also process the data about your person required for the initiation or fulfilment of the contract, in particular address data and information about the method of payment. The legal basis of the processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b) GDPR. The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for achieving the purpose of its processing or as soon as there are no legitimate interests preventing its deletion. Due to mandatory commercial and tax regulations, we are obliged to keep your address, payment and order data for a period of ten years. Two years after termination of the contract, we limit and reduce the processing to compliance with existing statutory obligations.

If you provide further data voluntarily (e.g. on interests, size, age, gender, children, preferences, memos), we process the data which is not necessary for the initiation or fulfilment of a contract as long as you use the pass-word-protected area and if you do not delete the data yourself beforehand. Our aim is to optimize the use of the website for you as a user. The legal basis for this is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

You can object to the processing of the data you provide voluntarily. You can manage, change or delete the data you provide voluntarily yourself at any time in the password-protected area. You are free to take measures in accordance with the "Your rights" section, and if you have any complaints, please contact our company as a first step.


E-mail marketing

Existing customer advertising

We reserve the right to process the e-mail address provided by you as part of the registration/order/booking process in accordance with statutory provisions in order to send you the following content by e-mail during or after the contract has been processed, unless you have already objected to this processing of your e-mail address:

  • additional interesting offers from our portfolio,
  • information on company events,
  • technical information,
  • our catalogue,
  • questions concerning specific desires,
  • overview of possible leisure activities.

The legal basis for the processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. We carry out this processing for customer-care purposes and to increase our service scope. We delete your data when you cancel your newsletter subscrip-tion, and no later than two years after termination of the contract.

Please note that you can object to receiving direct advertising at any time without incurring any costs other than the usual transmission costs. Click on the unsubscribe link in the newsletter or send us your objection to the ad-dress stated in the section "Responsible provider/representative of the provider in the European Union".


Newsletter

You can subscribe to our e-mail newsletter on the website, which we use to regularly inform you about the fol-lowing contents:

  • offers from our portfolio,
  • company events,
  • offers (including events) of third parties if you have given your consent,
  • new articles/collections,
  • special/time-limited offers.

In order to receive the newsletter, we need the following personal data:

  • recipient (name or pseudonym),
  • valid e-mail address

Subscription to our e-mail newsletter requires use of the double opt-in procedure. After entering the data marked as mandatory, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you have provided asking you to explicitly confirm your subscription to the newsletter (by clicking on a confirm link). This is how we ensure that you really want to receive our e-mail newsletter. If confirmation does not take place within 24 hours, we block the information transmitted to us and delete it automatically after one month at the latest.

Furthermore, the following data is processed at the time of the subscription:

  • IP address,
  • date/time of registration for the newsletter,
  • time of your confirmation-link confirmation.

We process your IP address, the time of registration for the newsletter and the time of your confirmation in order to document your newsletter registration and to prevent misuse of your personal data. The legal basis for the processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. We process this data until two years after the termination of the contract. If newsletter registration takes place outside of contract conclusion, we process the data up to the expi-ration of two years after termination of the use procedure. We delete the data when the newsletter subscription ends.

After your confirmation we will process the e-mail address and name/pseudonym of the recipient concerned for the purpose of sending you our e-mail newsletter. The legal basis for the processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. a) GDPR. We delete this data when you cancel your newsletter subscription.

You can revoke your consent to the processing of your e-mail address to receive the newsletter at any time, either by sending us a message (see the contact details in the section "Responsible provider/representative of the pro-vider in the European Union") or by clicking directly on the unsubscribe link contained in the newsletter.


CleverReach" e-mail marketing service

We use CleverReach for sending newsletters. The provider is CleverReach GmbH & Co KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. CleverReach is a service using which newsletter dispatch can be organised and analysed. The data you enter for the newsletter subscription (e.g. e-mail address) is stored on CleverReach's servers in Germany and Ireland.

The newsletters we send out with CleverReach enable us to analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients. Among other things, it allows us to analyse how many recipients opened the newsletter message and how often a link was clicked in the newsletter. With the help of the so-called conversion tracking we can also analyse whether a pre-defined action (e.g. the purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. For more information on data analysis with the CleverReach newsletter, please visit: https://www.cleverreach.com/en/features/reporting-tracking/.

The named information is evaluated in order to recognise the reading habits of the recipients and to be able to adapt and scatter our newsletter contents better. The legal basis for the processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. We process this data for up to two years after the termination of the contract. If newsletter registration takes place outside of contract conclusion, we process the data up to the expiration of two years after termination of the use procedure. We delete the data when the newsletter subscription ends. We have no knowledge of the storage time at CleverReach and have no influence on it. Please see CleverReach's privacy policy for more infor-mation: https://www.cleverreach.com/de/datenschutz/.

You can object to the processing at any time with effect for the future by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the end of the newsletter. The processing for receiving the newsletter and for statistical analysis will then end at the same time. Separate objection to dispatch via CleverReach or statistical evaluation is not possible.

Alternatively, you can object at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and http://www.youronlinechoices.com/cz/ (for the European Union area).


Payment Service Provider (PSP)

PayPal

On our website we offer you the option of payment via PayPal. The provider of this payment service is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter referred to as: “PayPal”).

If you choose to pay using PayPal, your payment details will be sent to PayPal. Your data will be transmitted to PayPal on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 sent. 1 lit. b) GDPR (processing for the fulfilment of a contract). We have no knowledge of the storage time at PayPal and have no influence on it.

Disclosure of personal data for the purposes of law enforcement/address identification/debt collection

In the event of non-payment, we reserve the right to pass on the data communicated at the time of order-ing/booking to a lawyer and/or to external companies (e.g. Verband der Vereine Creditreform e.V., Hellers-bergstraße 12, D-41460 Neuss) if there is a legitimate interest pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR for the purposes of address determination and/or law enforcement.

In addition, we may disclose your information when necessary to exercise our rights, as well as the rights of our affiliates, our cooperation partners, our employees and/or users of our website. Under no circumstances will we sell or rent your data to third parties. The data is passed on on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

We delete the data arising in this context once storage is no longer necessary, or limit the processing if statutory retention obligations exist.

You can object to the processing of your data at any time. This is the case if processing is not necessary in particu-lar to fulfil a contract with you, which in each case is explained by us in the previous description of the functions. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust data processing or point out to you our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue the processing.


PayPal Plus

If you select the payment method "Direct debit via PayPal Plus" or "Credit card via PayPal Plus" for your book-ing/order, we will forward the collected personal data to PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter "PayPal") as part of payment processing. The legal basis for the process-ing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

PayPal issues an invoice based on the transmitted data and carries out an identity and credit check if necessary. PayPal has a legitimate interest in the transmission of the buyer's personal data and processes it in order to obtain information from credit agencies for the purpose of identity and credit assessment, art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

These agencies can include those listed at https://www.paypal.com/cz/webapps/mpp/ua/third-parties-list?locale.x=cs_CZ and https://www.paypal.com/cz/webapps/mpp/ua/third-parties-list?locale.x=cs_CZ.

As part of the credit assessment, mathematical-statistical methods are used to calculate a rating with regard to the probability of non-payment (score calculation). PayPal uses the calculated score as the basis for its decision as to whether to make available the respective payment methods. A score is calculated according to recognised scientific methods.

In addition to address data, information on past payment behaviour and probability values on expected future payment behaviour are also included. We have no knowledge of the storage time at PayPal and have no influence on it.

You may at any time request information on or the correction or deletion of the data stored by PayPal and object to the processing of your personal data by PayPal at any time. However, PayPal remains entitled to process and pass on the customer data if this is necessary for contractual payment processing (art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. b) GDPR) or is required by law, authority or court (art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. c) GDPR).


You can contact PayPal via the following contact form: https://www.paypal.com/en/selfhelp/contact/email/privacy. For more information on how PayPal processes your data, please see https://www.paypal.com/en/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.

Hosting

We use external hosting services to provide the following services: infrastructure and platform services, comput-ing capacity, storage resources and database services, security and technical maintenance services. All the data necessary for the operation and use of our website is processed.

We use external hosting services for the operation of this website. By using external hosting services, we aim to make the provision of our website efficient and secure. The legal basis for the processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

The collection of data for the provision and use of the website and the processing of data via external web hosts is absolutely essential for the operation of the website. You may object to the processing. In the event of your justi-fied objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust data processing or point out to you our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue the processing.


Integration of third-party content

The website includes third-party content such as videos, maps, RSS feeds and graphics from other websites. This integration always requires that the providers of this content ("third-party providers") have access to the IP ad-dresses of the users. This is because without the IP address they cannot send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content.

We make every effort to use only content from third parties who process the IP address solely for the purpose of delivering the content. However, we have no influence on this if the third-party providers process the IP ad-dresses, e.g. for statistical purposes. If we know this is the case, we will inform you about it below.

Some of these third parties may process data outside the European Union.

You can object to this by installing a JavaScript blocker such as the 'NoScript' browser plugin (www.noscript.net) or deactivating JavaScript in your browser.

However, this can lead to functional restrictions on the website.


Google Tag Manager

We use Google Tag Manager on our website. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags via a single interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookieless domain and does not collect any personal data. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

YouTube videos

We use plug-ins from the video platform YouTube.de or YouTube.com on the website, a service operated – repre-sented by Google – by YouTube LLC (headquarters at 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA; "YouTube"). Using the plug-ins, we can also include visual content ("videos") that we have published on Youtube.de and Youtube.com on this website.

The videos are all in "extended privacy mode", i.e. no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos will the data described below be transmitted. We have no influence on this data transmission.

By visiting the website, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data specified in the "Access data" section is transmitted. This is independent of whether YouTube provides a user account via which you have logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish it to be associated with your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the button.

YouTube stores your data as a usage profile and processes it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such evaluation takes place in particular (even for unlogged-in users) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activi-ties on our website.

The legal basis for the processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The processing serves to make our website more attractive and to offer you additional services. We have no knowledge of the storage time at YouTube and have no influence on it.

You have the right to object to the processing and must contact YouTube to exercise this right. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your Internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all functions of the website in full.


For more information about the purpose and scope of processing by YouTube, please see the Privacy Policy at https://www.google.cz/intl/cz/policies/privacy. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Google Custom Search

We use "Google Custom Search". (Google Custom Search Engine "Google CSE") as a central tracing service. The integrated search service enables a full-text search for the content of this website.

For the user's information, the text "search with Google™ ..." is displayed. If the input field of the search box is selected by the user and a search term entered, an additional link appears below the search box which refers to these notes on data protection.

Data is not transferred to Google until you activate the search box, start a full-text search and thereby access the search results page. By using the search function within the search results page, your data will also be transferred to Google at the same time. This includes, for example, the search terms you have entered and the IP address of the computer you are using. If you visit our official websites without activating "Google Custom Search", no data will be transmitted to Google. Please note that the processing of possibly transmitted personal data is the responsibility of Google and that we have no influence on the type and scope of the transmitted data and on its further processing. If you are simultaneously logged in to Google, the Google service is able to assign the information directly to your user profile. You should log out to prevent profile information being collected about you.

The legal basis for the processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The processing serves to make our website more attractive and to offer you additional services. We have no knowledge of the storage time at Google and have no influence on it.

You have the right to object to the processing and must contact Google to do this. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your Internet browser.

Google Maps

This website also uses the "Google Maps" service from Google to display maps or map sections, thereby enabling you to make easy use of the map function on the website.

By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data specified in the "Access data" section will be transmitted to Google. This is regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you have used to log in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button.

Google stores your data as usage profiles and processes them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or the demand-oriented design of its website. Such evaluation takes place in particular (even for unlogged-in users) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.

The legal basis for the processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The processing serves to make our website more attractive and to offer you additional services. We have no knowledge of the storage time at Google and have no influence on it.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use "Google reCAPTCHA" (hereinafter: "reCAPTCHA") on our website. The provider of the service is Google.

reCAPTCHA is used to verify that the data entered on the website (e.g. in a contact form) has been entered by a person and not an automated program. To this end, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the visitor of the web-site on the basis of different characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the user accesses the website. For analysis purposes, reCAPTCHA evaluates various items of information (e.g. IP address, the amount of time the website visitor stays on the website and mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.

reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the background. You are not notified that an analysis is taking place.

Processing is carried out on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in protecting our web offers from abusive automated spying and unsolicited e-mail advertising (SPAM). We have no knowledge of the storage time at reCAPTCHA and have no influence on it.

You can object to the processing of your data at any time. This is the case if processing is not necessary in particu-lar to fulfil a contract with you, which in each case is explained by us in the previous description of the functions. In such a case, the processing of the request may possibly not be continued. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust data processing or point out to you our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we will continue the processing.


Further information about Google reCAPTCHA as well as Google's privacy policy can be found by following these links: https://www.google.com/intl/cs/policies/privacy/ and https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/android.html.

Services for statistical, analytical and marketing purposes

We use third-party services for statistical, analytical and marketing purposes. This enables us to provide you with user-friendly and optimized use of the website. The third-party providers use cookies to control their services (see the "Cookies" section above). Personal data will not be processed, unless otherwise explained below.

Some of the third-party providers allow you to directly object to the use of the respective service, e.g. by setting an opt-out cookie.

If you activate a corresponding opt-out cookie, the external provider will no longer process any data about your usage behaviour. Selective objection to an individual selection of external services is also possible. If you change the browser or the terminal device used or delete all cookies, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

In the following we inform you about the services of external providers currently used on our website as well as about the purpose and scope of the respective processing in individual cases and about your existing objection possibilities.

Google Analytics

In order to optimally tailor our website to your interests, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies" (see the "Cookies" section above), which are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. The information generated about your use of this website is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and processed there.

If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be reduced by Google within 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 will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports for us on website activity and to provide us with further 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.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". As a result, IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form to prevent them from being able to be directly linked to a particular individual. If the data collected about you is personal, it will be immediately excluded and deleted.

We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics help us improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is trans-ferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the processing of Google Analytics is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit f) GDPR. The Analytics cookies are deleted after fourteen months at the latest.

You have the right to object. 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 and processing the data generated by the cookie and relating it to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Usage-based online advertising

Facebook Custom Audiences

The website also uses the "Website Custom Audiences" function via the so-called "Facebook Pixel" of Facebook Inc (provider is Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland, e-mail: impressum-support@support.facebook.com, data protection information at: https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation; hereafter: "Facebook").

This allows users of the website to see interest-based advertisements ("Facebook ads") when visiting the social network Facebook or other websites that also use this process. We want to show you advertisements that are of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Facebook server. We have no influence on the extent and further processing of the data collected by Facebook through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: By integrating Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have visited the corresponding webpage on our website, or that you have clicked on one of our advertisements. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address and other identifying information.

The legal basis for processing your data is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In this case, we do not store any per-sonal data about you. We have no knowledge of and no influence over the storage time on Facebook.

You can prevent the "Facebook Custom Audiences" function in various ways and thus make use of your right of objection:

  • by setting your browser software accordingly – the suppression of third-party cookies in particular means that you will not receive any ads from third-party providers;
  • by deactivating the interest-based ads of providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulation cam-paign via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies.

(the provider is Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland, e-mail: impressum-support@support.facebook.com, data protection information at: https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation; hereafter: "Facebook") to track your user behaviour. The information obtained through the tracking pixel cookie is used by us solely for statistical purposes, is transmitted to us anonymously by Facebook and does not provide any information about the person of the user. However, Facebook will link this information to your Facebook account, store and use it for its own promotional purposes in accordance with Facebook's Privacy Policy and may also transfer your information to Facebook's partners. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address and other identifying information.

Your data will be processed in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our aim in using Facebook Analytics is to be able to better evaluate our website and improve our service offering.

For more information about Facebook's data protection provisions, please see the privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Google AdSense

The website uses Google's online advertising service Google AdSense, which allows you to be presented with advertising tailored to your interests. We want to show you advertisements that could be of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you. To this end, statistical information about you is collected and processed by our advertising partners. These advertisements can be recognised by the reference to "Google ads" in the respective advertisement.

By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have accessed our website. Google uses a web beacon to set a cookie on your computer. The data specified in the "Access data" section is transmitted. We have no influence on the data collected, nor are we aware of the full extent of data processing and the storage period. Your data will be transferred to and processed in the USA. If you are logged in with your Google account, your data can be directly assigned to it. If you do not wish it to be associated with your Google profile, you must log out. It is possible that this data will be passed on to Google's contractual partners and to third parties and authorities. The legal basis for processing your data is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. We have no knowledge of the storage time at Google and have no influence on it.

Google AdWords Conversion

We use Google Adwords from Google to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising mate-rials (so-called Google AdWords) on external websites. We can determine in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns how successful the individual advertising measures are. We want to show you advertisements that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.

These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called "ad servers". To this end, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the insertion of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google AdWords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to personally identify you. This cookie usually stores the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conver-sions) and opt-out information (a tag that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) as analysis values.

These cookies enable Google to recognise your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an AdWords customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the customer may rec-ognise that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each AdWords customer is as-signed a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. We do not process any personal data ourselves in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Using these evaluations we can determine which of the used advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and further processing of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: By integrating AdWords Conversion, Google receives information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an ad from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.

The legal basis for processing your data is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. We have no knowledge of the storage time at Google and have no influence on it.

You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various ways:

  • by setting your browser software accordingly, the suppression of third-party cookies in particular means that you will not receive any ads from third-party providers;
  • by disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the "www.googleadservices.com" domain, https://www.google.cz/settings/ads, which will be deleted when you delete your cookies;
  • by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulation campaign via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, (this setting is deleted if you delete your cookies);
  • by permanently deactivating installation in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome via the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this offer in full.

Google DoubleClick

We continue to use Google's online marketing tool "DoubleClick" on the website. DoubleClick uses cookies to display ads relevant to users, improve campaign performance reports, and to prevent users from seeing the same ads more than once. Google uses a cookie ID – a pseudonymous identification number assigned to your browser – to track which ads are displayed in which browser and to prevent them from being displayed more than once. This pseudonym is assigned information about user activities on the website, and allows Google and its partner sites to display ads based on previous visits to websites. In addition, DoubleClick can use the cookie ID to record so-called conversions related to ad requests. For example, if a user sees a double-click ad and later visits the ad-vertiser's website with the same browser and buys something there.

The information generated by the DoubleClick cookies is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google complies with the data protection provisions of the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement and is certified for the "Privacy Shield", https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The data will only be transferred to third parties within the framework of legal regulations or order processing. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not contain any personal information.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and further processing of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: By integrating DoubleClick, Google receives information that you have accessed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on one of our ad-vertisements. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.

The legal basis of the processing is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. DoubleClick cookies are deleted after six months at the latest. By using DoubleClick, we want to show you advertisements that may be of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting to you.

You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various ways and thus exercise your right of objec-tion:

  • by setting your browser software accordingly, the suppression of third-party cookies in particular means that you will not receive any ads from third-party providers;
  • by disabling the cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the "www.googleadservices.com" domain, https://www.google.cz/settings/ads, (this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies);
  • by deactivating the interest-based ads of providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulation cam-paign via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, (this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies);
  • by permanently deactivating installation in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome via the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin.

Google Remarketing

Besides Adwords Conversion we also use the application Google Remarketing from Google. This is a process we would like to use to contact you again. This application allows you to see our advertisements after visiting our website when you continue to use the Internet. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, which are used to record and evaluate your usage behaviour when you visit various websites. In this way, Google can determine your previous visit to our website. According to its own statements, Google does not merge the data collected in the context of remarketing with your personal data, which may be processed by Google. According to Google, pseudonymisation is used for remarketing in particular.

The legal basis of the processing is art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR. We have no knowledge of the storage time at Google and have no influence on it.

You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various ways and thus exercise your right of objec-tion:

Plug-ins for social networks

Our website includes social-network plug-ins. These are provided by the following providers:

The plug-ins are indicated on our website by the above-mentioned lettering or by small stylized symbols.

We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it does the plug-in provider receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data specified in the "Access data" sec-tion is transmitted.

In the case of Facebook and Xing, the IP address is, according to the respective provider in Germany, ano-nymised immediately after collection. By activating the plug-in, personal data is transferred from you to the respective plug-in provider and processed there (for US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider mainly collects data via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the greyed-out box using your browser's security settings.

We have no influence on the data collected and processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of the data processing, the purposes of the processing or the storage periods. We also have no information on the dele-tion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.

The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and processes it for the purposes of ad-vertising, market research and/or the demand-oriented design of its website. Such evaluation takes place in par-ticular (including for unlogged-in users) to display demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.

The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is art. 6 para. 1 sent. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.

You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles. To exercise this right, you must contact the respective plug-in provider. You can also prevent the creation of user profiles in various ways and thus make use of your right of objection:

  • by setting your browser software accordingly – the suppression of third-party cookies in particular means that you will not receive any ads from third-party providers;
  • by deactivating the interest-based ads of providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulation cam-paign via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting will be deleted if you delete your cookies.

The data is transferred regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected by us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you click on the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider will also save this information in your user account and publicly communicate it to your contacts.

We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as in this way you can avoid data being assigned to your profile by the plug-in provider.
