    • information about the processing (Article 15 GDPR)
    • correction of incorrect data (Article 16 GDPR)
    • deletion of data no longer required (Article 17 GDPR)

    8. Information on the transfer of data to the USA

    We integrate tools offered by companies based in the USA into our website. If these tools are active, your personal data can be transmitted to the US servers of the respective companies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe non-member country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are obligated to disclose personal data to security authorities without you, as the data subject, being able to take legal action against this. Thus, it cannot be ruled out that US authorities, e.g., secret services, may process, evaluate, and permanently store your data for monitoring purposes on servers in the USA. We have no influence on these processing activities.

    8.1. Cookies

    Our website uses so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files and do not damage your device in any way. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently on your device (permanent cookies). Session cookies are automatically deleted after your visit to the website. Permanent cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them yourself or your web browser automatically deletes them.

    In some cases, cookies from third party companies can also be stored on your device when you access our website (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain third-party services, e.g. cookies to utilize payment services and process payments.

    Cookies have various functions. Numerous cookies are necessary for technical reasons because certain website functions would not work without them, e.g., the shopping cart function or the display of videos. Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or to display adverts.

    Cookies that are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you desire, e.g., for the shopping cart function or to optimize the website (e.g., cookies to evaluate the website audience), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR, insofar as no other legal basis is stipulated. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If you consent to the storage of cookies in response to a request, the storage of the relevant cookies takes place exclusively on the basis of this consent according to Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR; said consent can be revoked at any time.

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

    Insofar as cookies are used by third-party companies or for analysis purposes, we will inform you of this separately within the framework of this Privacy Policy and, if necessary, request your consent.

    8.2 YouTube with enhanced data protection

    This website ingrates YouTube videos. The website operator is Google Ireland Limited “Google”, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

    We use YouTube in the enhanced data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the transfer of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded through the enhanced data protection mode. YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network – regardless of whether you watch a video.

    As soon as you start watching a YouTube video on this website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Information is sent to the YouTube server about which of our pages you visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

    Furthermore, after starting a video, YouTube can save various cookies on your device or use comparable recognition technologies, e.g., device fingerprinting. In this way, YouTube can receive information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve user-friendliness, and prevent fraud attempts.

    It is possible that further data processing activities can be triggered after the start of a YouTube video. However, we have no influence on this.

    We use YouTube in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR. If a corresponding consent has been requested, processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR; said consent can be revoked at any time.
